Now it is time for me to become stronger, more flexible, confident, moving gracefully through my days, comfortable in my own body. And with that will be an acceptance that I will never look "model thin"( quite frankly I don't have the time to put into that effort), but I will have a confidence of an older woman who is taking care of herself and not ashamed of becoming older.

My first dance
Yes, I did it. And here's the pic to prove it. I belly danced in public for the first time. It wasn't perfect and I had issues with this costume. But I did it! I danced, moved, smiled, and enjoyed the freedom of it all. I enjoyed the live drummers that we had with us and found that as I was standing listening that I was moving my hands and hips in time with the beat. The music moved me.
