    As of this morning I am down 40 pounds since my revision which is 2/3 of the way to my somewhat arbitrary goal. I am super pleased!
    And an NSV... I performed in a show in Atlanta last week and for once I don't hate my pictures!

    You look great! What kind of dancing is this, if I may ask? I love the costume.

    @Larra@Larra I am a tribal belly dancer. The style I dance is an improv style derived from American Tribal Style (ATS). We have a vocabulary of movements with built in cues we can use to create dance in the moment in a lead and follow. It looks like choreography but isn't and most people who are not familiar with it and watch us dance have no idea we are improving. I can post video once I get it as long as I don't hate what I look like in it either

    Thanks! I've never even heard of tribal belly dancing before. I bet it's good exercise as well as a lot of fun.

    @duh_Mom@duh_Mom trust me the scars are there. I have my original band scars, my sleeve scars, an old TT scar, and plenty of stretchies. The power of a light mist of glitter spray and stage lights can correct a multitude of sins ;)
