Congrats and good luck! :cheer:

I had great intentions of going to the gym today but I didn't :( I HAVE to take my gym bag with me to work. If I come home to change (just live down the street from gym) I'm done for.

But I did put the money back in my pocket and left after going out to the vending machine today! :bananada:

I take the kids to school Tues- Fri, and go right to the gym, Mondays are my lazy days with Squinty.

Ok.. joined curves, now I need someone to point me to UBER good belly dancer garb.... my goal is to get into it by either NYRF or TX. I figure if I buy it now then I'll be forced to get into shape.

Good job about the vending machine, i've been doing that lately too so i'm super proud. With the gym thing, just keep the bag in your car. That's what i do, cause i know that if i go home after class i WILL NOT leave again to go to the gym.

I believe Crimson Gypsy has nice belly dancer garb.

Also...there is always the Moresca open house.

Tells how to make it yourself. Also a great book: The Bellydance Book (ISBN: 097002470-3) includes more How-Tos AND talks about what VERSION LOOKS GOOD ON WHAT BODY TYPE. :shock:

Okay, okay... :lol:

But seriously, look over the book, if you can. That section on how to hide bits that you aren't proud of made it worth the cost to me.

Went yesterday...Bellydance class tonight (woo!), and I plan on going back to Curves on Friday.

With the weather like it is, I need SOMETHING to get me out of the blues. Exercise does the trick!

FYI...another great bellydance link or two: http://www.fcbd.com/ and http://www.turquoiseintl.com/index.html. The first has the best price I've seen on veils, and the second has the best finger cymbals on the market.

the gal teaching me has that book, and it does rock. No two of us that are learning together are the same body type, so we're all going to make a different style outfit.

Note on tiered skirts: the end product is amazing, but they take a tremendous amount of work. (May I never have to pin a 10-yard hem ever ever again.) www.flyingskirts.com has some spiffy ones.

One thing that I do is no matter how I feel or what I have to do I at least show up and do a couple machines. That gets/keeps you in the habit of going and it keeps getting easier to go.
