The recital pictures! I've had to do some severe editing so I don't expose anyone on Teh Intarweebs who'd prefer to stay a teensy bit more anonymous. I also had a picture "done" so when that comes in I'll post it as well.
Still hanging steady at 135/136, and I think I'm going to hang out here for awhile. I have enough flexibility to not freak about how my pants are fitting, and it's time to stabilize once again. I do find it hilarious that last year it took me 16 weeks to drop from just over 141 to right at 135, and this year it took a whopping six weeks, if that. The only thing I can figure is that last year I'd been bouncing around the upper 140's for awhile and hit 150 before I decided to go into weight loss mode, whereas this year I'd been hanging around 138-142 since after my ablation (135-ish prior), thus giving me a lower starting point. Eh, it's a theory.
Anyway, to the pictures!
Yes, I was texting well-prior to the performance :P In fairness, I'm posting this one because it's probably the best shot of my hair and eye makeup. That dressing room was crowded!
Outdoor shot -- my hip scarf is barely visible primarily because it hangs down in back.
Here's another outdoor shot -- do NOT PANIC over my stomach! It was the pose (which is another reason why I posted the prior picture before this, because, yipes -- could I suck in any further???)
And at last, on stage! This is definitely a better shot of the hip scarf, too.
We really had a blast performing, and everyone did a marvelous job. We didn't get to see the professionals and more advanced classes/ individuals/ duets perform at the recital since we were backstage, but we saw their acts at the run-through and they were all fabulous.
Now I just need to get over this anxiety and do my graduation dance to get into intermediate, because seriously y'all, I can only do this dance so many times before I go stark raving mad.
Have an awesome weekend!
