    So cool! How long did it take to achieve that?

    @tthickens637 I’ve been doing yoga for over ten years. I was 35 BMI last September. I reached normal BMI about four months ago and started working with a trainer. She has really built up my upper body strength. On Jan 1st, my goal for the year was “an arm balance”, and now I’ve got several. So I’ve upped the ante to “headstand in middle of the room”.

    Today was the first time I tried this pose, called “Fallen Angel”. The whole class clapped for me, something I’ve never seen at this studio. I was really touched. Many of them know me from 70 pounds ago, probably as “the fat chick: at least she tries really hard”.

    I feel like my body is a new toy. It does so many things I could never, ever have asked it to do just a few months ago.

    I asked someone to take the pictures after class so I could share them with my trainer to thank her. She is amazing- so supportive and motivating.

    Got grasshopper pose, too!

    That is such a wonderful story! Congrats on your accomplishments.

    For the last two weeks, I walked all over Europe - averaging about 20k steps a day. As my husband laughingly called it -- the deathmarch. We wanted (and did!) see so much while we were on vacation. I wasn't worried about calories or weight or anything; I just had fun. I took so many pictures: some of them are goofy and some of them I'm making some weird face in them, and I can't say I love all of the pictures of me... but I don't not love them because I felt big or large. My last trip (Japan), I definitely had them feels, but this trip, the ones I didn't like literally were not good pictures. XD XD

    So I guess I can say that my NSV is that I slayed the Dragontravel: I loved vacation, didn't feel like everyone was staring at me for being too big to be there (my first trips to Greece and Japan were definitely like that), and I was able to find souvenir shirts and hoodies and pants(!) while I was there.

    All in all, I felt fabulous, I had great energy, I walked probably 100 miles or close to it [I'm going to tally it up later], and never once thought about my weight or food.

    Now, it's nose to the grind to get the last 20lbs off so I will be DEEP in the HEART [middle] of a healthy BMI!

    What is a "Dragontravel"?

    Went to a house concert last night and a friend I hadn't seen in months walked up to me from across the room and said "you look ravishing". She went on to list all my "ravishing" qualities! Bam 💥 I'll be riding high on that one for awhile. 😋

    rav·ish·ing (raviSHiNG): adjective
    delightful; entrancing.

    "she looked ravishing"

    synonyms: very beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, wonderful, exquisite, lovely, striking, magnificent, dazzling, radiant, delightful, charming, enchanting, entrancing, captivating, bewitching;

    Ravishing?!? What an utterly lovely and powerful description of you...BOOM! Honey, ravishing is...period. YAY YOUI!
