Well.. I had a performance - really my first public showing since losing about 40lb or so. I am having this strange moment of awareness of my body changing. I look down and see my breasts, but I no longer see a gut below. I look in the mirror and my clothes are hanging on me.. (I really need to shop, renovate and trade for some new ones!) and most of all, my dancing has improved. There is a lightness to my step and an ability to move as fast as I really WANT to.
And while I may find fault in my lack of subtlety or my choosing the wrong prop for the tempo (my double veils need faster music) I am so pleased with the fact that others could see and and made happy comments on my amazing transformation.
Best (or do I mean worst) of all, nothing fits! I cannot even tie my hip sashes without breaking threads.... And that, is a very good thing indeed!
