This is my dance partner and I performing this weekend at a bellydance competition in the troupe/duet category:
This is me on the far right with a big smile, because we WON! 1st place out of five groups!
This competition has been my major focus for three months, and the last three weeks I have done nothing but work and bead that costume. The last week, I did no zumba or other exercise, I beaded, LOL.
Whew. Glad to have a good result for all that time!
The other amazing thing? I was the largest woman in that category. Some of them were tiny barbie dolls, a couple were more curvy, but I was the largest. And yet, we won.
That is a success for every fat chick, in my book.
Now...back to zumba. Back to walking. Back to eating clean. I remain, believe it or not, at 244. Despite having eaten whatever I really wanted the last two weeks due to intense stress (lot more than the competition going on, sadly, in that regard).
Today when I stepped on the scale, I thought really?? 244, still? I'm beginning to think it's broken, LOL. I was asked more than once this weekend tho, how much weight I've lost. That means those measurements don't lie. I HAVE lost some inches.
Back to regular posting and the pursuit of health, as of today. :)
