You look SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!! Now you are never allowed to say you are jealous of my curves lady. Honestly that dress is perfect for your new body. Hard to beat ruching and color blocking to help feature the girls and accentuate an hourglass figure!
Now you need to find a similar situation for the tops to go with the new jeans, and of course rockin' platforms.

Just popping in to say hi. My ballet class is my part 2 days of the week (I don't think that's a correctly structured sentence, lol). My plies are the smallest, my turnout is the smallest, but I really don't care. I go to my class, work on getting better. It's great fun.
My rosacea and eczema are pretty bad. Nothing the dermatologist has prescribed or tried has worked. Really think I need to try the AIP protocol for 6 weeks, but can't bring myself at this point to handle the restriction.
I've been doing the little things you showed me as well Well, most days anyway. I looked at some BB cream today, but it was too dark. I need to go to target or somewhere else and see if they have more of a selection.
I looked up the best rated ones and chose Garnier because it was easy to find and reasonably priced. I like it okay. I do use it along side my other moisturizers though so it might be a bit heavy on its own. I will likely switch next time around after more research, here is a place to start....http://www.thefashionspot.com/beauty...eams/#/slide/1 you might consider Dr. Jart+ for sensitive skin? p.s. you might consider a CC cream which I think is pretty much the same as a BB but with better coverage. Research before you buy
I was going to update my profile picture. Cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to do it
Buckling down on eating again. It's very easy for me to take 80/20 and have it become 20/80. I suspect this is going to be a life-long battle!
Ballet is so fun! We start with a lot of gentle stretches and mobility work. Then we align our posture. Then we do work on the barre - adding something new each week - this week was 4th position. We go through different "routines", practicing and fine-tuning our skills (keeping our posture in check!). Then we do a form of pada barra to a waltz tune, more stretches, and then end with "performance" skills like curtseys, dramatic entrances and exits, splitting center, etc. Very good on many levels. After this class, I will take the level 2 class and then be able to take any class. I'm hoping that I am able after part 2 to get 3 classes a week.
Just a short note. Things are okay. My rosacea is still bad and the rash that accompanies it has come back. My dermatologist thinks a super low dose of antibiotics should be taken...it worked last time and cleared it up for months, so am thinking about it.
We are going back to Hawaii in May and I can hardly wait Hiking, paddle boarding, not sure what else. It will be enjoyable, regardless.
Still going to ballet and enjoying it a lot. I "graduate" from the beginner class this week and am going to be considered a level 2 student. MOre flexibility in choosing classes, so that will be nice.
Started working with an RD to help me lose the last 20 lb. She has me working on maintenance right now, which I know is a smart thing for both my mind and body, but it is really difficult for me mentally. I suspect it will always be a struggle, always something to work on. I had my body fat test in a Bod Pod. It's at 32.7% (give or take, since there's some inaccuracy of course), and the top end of the range of "normal" for my age, height, and gender is 33%. I'm working to replace some of the fat with muscle....or, at least not lose much more of my lean mass
