Day 19 - Sat down to start writing and a favourite song came on and I got a second wind. Woo! Quite exhausted now. In a good way. I feel like fat is shedding faster these days and tone is coming around my chest, ribs and shoulders. I’m becoming leaner up there.

Each day my posture aligns a little more and my body basks in new strength. The dance gives me vigour. My body is calling out for it - I do more dance - I get more aligned - I feel more power. Dance is making me stand up straighter. Stand up higher. Dance is giving me balance. This physical change is unreal after so many years of unhealthy suffering.

I’m finding my posture and losing my belly. I don’t look pregnant anymore. The shape of my body is changing. I’m never going back. To oblivion. To ignorance. Me and my gorgeously strong and sassy body are here to stay. Dance is my key to freedom.
