Oct 2011This is me, 18 lbs down from my start of 204 (before SP). Jeans now need a belt to stay up. :-)New pic, over 15 pounds down...Well, you asked for it! Here is THE dress! And I'm even wearing the jacket! Whoo-hoo!I love this shot! A bona fide size 12 all around!The blue blouse, THE dress and this outfit, all @ 30 lbs down from my start before SP.After Les Miserables at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre in New Orleans on Nov 4, 2012.Can't seem to get any good pics lately, but here's one from last night. I don't like how my pics are widened when I upload them here. Even the tree looks fatter than in the original pic!Over my range by a tad, but still under my BMR, even before the exercise. Not bad for a holiday!Woo-hoo!!!!! I just landed myself a real-live, competition dance partner! YESSSS!!!!!!!!!! Been too long since I competed, and I'm so much stronger now than I was then, both in technique, and overall body strength.For those of you who have been asking to see video of my dance performances, here are two of them from Saturday night...

And just for kicks, here is my best-ever action shot. SP chops off half of my partner, though.Visions of loveliness!Visions of loveliness!I'm not in this pic (I'm behind the camera), but this is what I spent 3 hours doing last night. I love ballroom dancing!!!I rarely bother with photos of my food, but this was so colorful and cheery that I had to share.
A huge Creole tomato, fresh picked today, Mediterranean style tuna, chickpeas, with some leftover grilled veggies. Not pictured, roasted brussels sprouts.Seems like the heat is a topic today. Here's mine. But, I'm inside, celebrating my independence by gutting and cleaning.This little guy knows how to beat the heat!This week has been awesome! I'm at All Star Dance Camp, and have been dancing upwards of 5 hours a day! Besides leaning all kinds of new stuff, and refining some techniques, I've also joined a class to learn and perform an entire Tango Routine in 4 days (a total of 5 class hours)! I am so sore! But it's soooooooo good! The performance is tomorrow night. When I'm able, I'll post a link to the video. Meanwhile, here's a faithful saying (on the t-shirt in the pic)...I am reposting this photo to grab the attention of the folks who said they were interested in watching my Tango routine ones the video was up. Here's the link to the routine.
https://youtu.be/Gu-TuTXSnr0Looks like a prom picture doesn't it? (It looks better than my senior prom picture!) Anyway, this was from the recent Bourbon Street Ball ballroom dance competition. My partner and I did as well as can be expected for only training together for about three months. Now comes the hard work of preparing for a much larger and more intense competition next summer. But in the meantime we also get to have fun dancing a showcase routine to this music: https://youtu.be/feM6fFBaaNoEverybody's been posting pictures of things that weigh how much they've lost. Overall, I've lost an amount in between the two items in this picture. The recent leg of my journey is about half that.
