    I would rather do planks, less strain on my back I think.

    Tonight's report: I had a huge amount of energy all day. Taking supplements at midday gave me a second wind. I worked all day, did a half an hour LHT plus two hours of belly dancing practice.

    My calories were low at 1100 75g f, 50g c, 58g p. I should have had a serving of whey protein with dinner, but I ran out the door before I finished logging food in fit day. Lesson: Log right after dinner.

    Feeling very satisfied with my accomplishments today.

    I am a big woman

    My bellydancing instructor has a beautiful studio in her back yard. We didn't use it in the winter because it is unheated. The studio, of course, has a wall of mirrors. It is good, because now I can see that I am doing most of the moves correctly and can fix what is off. It is also bad because I can see how large I am in comparison to the other women. I am taller and wider than they are, My arms and legs seem huge and not very graceful. It has been this way all my life. I remember the first time I saw my husband (then boyfriend) and I reflected in a store window. I thought "Oh Yeah, finally a man who makes me look normal." lol He's 6'3"

    I know that the "Big girl" mentality could fester in my mind and cause a binge, so I felt I needed to talk about it. I will try to take it as inspiration. I can and will be smaller by July 20th.

    That is so funny because I always wished I was taller. I am 5'7" so not short. But my cousin is 6' barefooted and when we used to go out together she always wore heels. Boy did she get (positive) attention. She is not as attractive as I am (not being mean just truthful), does not have the hair (which is how I got my attention), but I tell ya, when busty woman standing 6'4" walks into a room people notice. So....knowing you are gonna stand out from the crowd, should give you incentive to perfect the dance moves even more. I am jealous of your many opportunities.

    I am a 'big girl' also, and it has really messed with my idea of my own femininity. I wish our culture did not equate 'small' with being a woman. It's a tough one.
    But no need for a binge. You're on top of it!

    I'm a shorter "big girl" and I was always taught that being bigger isn't beautiful or feminine so I've always been very awkward in my body and that has kept me from doing a lot of what wanted.

    I don't feel like bingeing at this moment, but boy am I starving. As I said in my report last night, I just did not eat enough yesterday. I'm also exhausted and my sleep is bad. I may go back on 5htp for a while. The bags under my eyes look ridiculous.

    I slept great until last night. My allergies were horrible last night so I'm going to get my flonase refilled. I think I slept maybe 2-3 hours. I'm not working tonight, so after I get that filled, I will go back to bed.

    Good luck on a quick day.

    As for being a 'big girl', eh, beauty knows no shape or size. Sure, the media can parade around their version all day, but it is seldom reality in either what women look like in general or what most men are looking for. It is also not always healthy. So you are taller than the others? Awesome. As Chris said, you stand out. You are not as graceful? That is arguable as we have seen you dance (you were not the one falling on your butt ) and heck, you can always make up in power and strength what the willowly types have in grace.

    My exwife was 6' tall. She got all kinds of notice. She was a big girl. No two ways about it, but heck, it didn't stop her from being the center of attention.
