Dancing Legs

Monday, March 25, 2013

Friday, I went dancing. I had fun dancing. I am not a great dancer, but I enjoy moving around to a good beat. I went out with my coworker, who is a very sweet young woman. We started at a pub. We met a nice young guy who was new to town. We left the bar, in our heels, in search of dancing with our new friend. We asked some strangers that we met up the street about where the dance clubs were, and they told us to follow them. They led us to a bar playing hip hop music (I am more of an indie rock type of girl, but I am learning that I can move to anything) and I was the token white girl for the night, but I had a great time dancing. It was a fun crowd with great energy. We left that bar, and we spent the remainder of the night dancing to salsa. I was still the only white girl, but that is not important, except my friends pointed out that I had white girl moves emoticon . I passed up a few offers for dancing partners... but still danced with a few, and I had a great time. The bars all close at two, and even though I had been up since 4, I wanted to dance longer. I was sad to be kicked out. So my dancing legs walked us back to the pub, where we waited for our ride home.

Legs are the topic of the day for me. I lost around 185 pounds, and this Friday, I am having the loose skin on my legs removed (thigh and butt lift). I am excited, and a bit nervous. I love the strength and flexibility of my legs, but the skin is not so pretty. Since I had my upper body fixed, my legs stand out as looking out of place. My surgeon, Kyle, sort of showed me how they should look when it's done. "You have nice muscular legs, Jeannie" is what he told me as he pulled up the skin. I want to see those muscles that I worked so hard for. So I am excited to fix the aesthetics of my dancing legs. My "saddle bag" is more a skin issue than a fat issue, as my doctor has pointed out. I can't wait to have smooth legs!

After dancing all night, these legs got up and ran/walked around 18 miles on Saturday. Then they hiked 8 miles up a mountain on Sunday. They are good legs, my dancing legs. Soon hopefully, they will look as good as they feel.

    I'm thinking of the David Bowie song"Let's Dance"
    /Put on your red shoes, and dance the blues/

    She's got legs, she knows how to use them.
    She never begs, she knows how to choose them.
    She's got a dime all of the time,
    Stays out at night movin' through time.
