    @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!

    I've not been able to fit in to this vest for about 5 years so I'm super chuffed right now :smiley:

    Thank you! So kind :heart:

    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!
