Being a ballerina: Today I was thinking about the first day I walked into my ballet class. When I looked around the room and I saw all those young skinny ladies warming up for class my heart starting beating out of my chest. For a moment I felt like running out of that place because of my lack of ballet experience, age and size.
When the ballet teacher arrive I asked him if I was too big for the class. He looked at me and said no - not for this level. That was good enough for me. As I turned to look at myself in the mirror I started to smile at myself because I could not believe I was taking a ballet class at my age and size. This took guts and confidence and I completed the 16 week course with flying color and a ton of respect for myself. I proved to myself that I could do leaps, run, roll, and balance myself just as well as the skinny girls.
So this semester I will be signing up for ballet level II just to push myself a little further. I am sure the teacher will be surprise to see me at my new size. I can not wait to see how high I can leap now that I have dropped the weight. Everyday is a new challenge in my world
