i lost weight, my nest egg and my mind. please write a story about me.
I lost 20 lbs when I started and I still have like 20 lbs to go and I'm dancing but not dancing it off...does that count?
You dropped 140 lbs? Did you break up with your SO?
Hee! Not at that time. (and that would have been about 190 lbs. :tongue I broke my back and started dancing after I learned how to walk again. I had *a lot* of weight to lose....
30 lb in 3 months, but that was from lindy. Ballroom made me more tone than giving weight loss since I had already been a lindy dancer for 3 months.
I started weight lifting because of ballroom and never stopped.
Didn't lose a lot of weight (about 15 lbs.), but I did use to have a lot of foot problems, which all cleared up when I started dancing.
what a story, medira! good for you...
wow! what an incredible and inspiring story! Good for you!!
lost about 45lbs. and went from a size 14 to a 6
:shock: :notworth: :raisebro:
I've lost 40lbs in the last year (how long i've been dancing) and have gone from a very full size 16 to a 10/12. Doing nothing differently except dancing. I have much more to go!
I am currently still recoversing after an accidednt. Lost over 30 pounds since mid October and went from size 20 to 14
Still a long way to go, but that's what I get after praciticing ballrom about 3 hours a day
Wow! All these stories are so inspiring! I am afraid to get back out there being about 20 pounds overweight, because I used to be SO skinny! I am afraid everyone will be judgemental. I have had people say, "you look so different" and it doesn't feel good.
Also, I know I will feel different, and I'm rusty. My students used to call me a Ferrari because of my following. Now, I'm embarrased because I haven't danced in so long.
I guess I should just stop worrying about what everyone will think, and dance for myself. For fun, for fulfillment, for exercise.
Feels very unimportant compared to all the other stories.
Eh, didn't lose a pound. But it probably helped stave off the freshman 15 so I'm not complaining.
I lost about 15 pounds, 2 clothing sizes and toned up quite a bit...thought that was good until I read all of your stories. Way to go everyone!
Is it safe to assume though that we all are probably dancing much more each day/week than the average new social dancer? I would hate for someone to think that they can lose all that weight and transform their body by doing one or two group classes a week. Though you have to start somewhere...
lord yes... more than the above-average social dancer, as well.
30 - 40 hours a week.
I lost my first 45 lbs. just dancing like a normal social dancer though...like I said though, I had *a lot* to lose.
I just another 4 lbs.
That means that I've lost 25 all together...still have like 15 more to go
