When Carmen is old...

Monday, September 23, 2013

...she is fat. At least if you look at this picture:

We did a dress rehearsal for our new fireshow "Carmen" where yours truly gets to play the old Carmen, looking back at her life. I am in the middle, the young Carmen is played by the girl to the right of me.

As usual I am needed because I can speak... my function is to explain what is happening, we do what you might call a very, very readers digest of Carmen, we execute the entire Bizet opera in twenty minutes...

It is a fire show, I get to dance a little in my entrée´and the others does different kind of fire acts - don Jose´and Camillo is dueling with burning swords, very impressive!

We are not singing, just acting to chosen parts of the music, I think it will be great and I "just" have to choreograph my dance (only one and a half minute) to go well with the music... not easy as it is very "marchy" music and I should do some sort of sliding flamenco... two weeks left to practise.

It is horrible to see how fat I am but I just have to live with it and keep on working with changing that image!

    I was almost 300# (and over 300# at one time). The motivation and drive often comes from pictures that we hate. This sounds like a wonderful time. Enjoy it!

    I'd say: Don't dwell on it. (On the weight) You are doing the best you can to make things better and that's that. Be a wonderful Carmen!

    I am 40 pounds over weight. It was due to a car accident that left me partially crippled for a really long time-10 years. I know it was my eating. When people look at me, alot don't even think I am fat? I don't understand it? but I think they are trying to be polite. I am only in a size 12. But I do know that this isn't all about me just being fat! I have now reached a new low, of finding out that when you stay stressed for real long, it leads to disease. And now I am dealing with the result of my stress which is a heart condition. And yes I know that I stress ate. So, I do hope you stay on track before it goes into other things!
