In May to June, I lost 7 lbs just dancing 4 days a week. Then I had some emotional issues and started to binge and gained it all back. I'd only recently started to lose it again. Has anyone lost a few pounds? I need to lose about 8 lbs before competition in Seattle...which I think is in October, but I'm not sure. The latin skirts are so short and I don't want my huge thighs jiggling for everyone to see.
