Sweatin' to the Samba

I went to the doctor today to see about having some moles my back and shoulder looked at. Totally awesome, I know! I have to go back on the 28th to have them taken off. Nothing scary, nothing truly suspicious, just a precaution. No worries.
But while there, I had to hop on the scales in the hallway. Much to my surprise, I'm tipping them at 112 1/2 pounds. Wow. I mean, really...for me...Wow! As Art would say (and only Art & a few select others are allowed to say such things), I'm looking normal. I would like a bit of control over where this weight is living, but so far, no one's asked me where to direct the half pint of Ben & Jerry's I just ate.
In related news, I added something cute, summery, and slightly bigger to my wardrobe today:

Look familiar? Yeah, it's the same as the one below, only in Waterfall as opposed to Hibiscus. The last one Wal-Mart had in a medium. And again, only three dollars. Yeah me...again.

In an effort to push my new curves into the places I want them, I'm very seriously considering taking a Zumba class starting next week. To be completely honest, I'm terrified. I'm horribly out of shape. I'm horribly uncoordinated (as Bella Swan would say, "I'm so clumsy, I'm practically disabled"). I'm worried that I won't make it through a class without giving up, passing out, or vomiting. But I'm willing to give it a shot. The fact that there's a class in the little town where the kids go to school, is a really big deal. The fact that it's only $5 a class is even cooler. Having never taken an exercise class of any kind, I'm going to pull up my big girl yoga pants and get to it.

And in the mean time I'm going to dance around my living room, like the white girl that I am, to the sounds of Glee. Oh, how I love Glee.......sigh.

You make me laugh...I'm glad that you're looking normal, and hope that the Zumba class works out for you. I get to try one for free in a couple weeks, and I'm excited! Of course, if I could find a way to shed my extra pounds and ship them to you so you could strategically place them where you'd like a little extra weight, I would!

Love your new dress...our Wal-Mart was sold out of all those things in my size, which is ok, because even at $3, I'd rather wait til I'm a bit lighter... :D

I think you should try pole dancing. I hear it's great exercise. And you could wear those short shorts your mother abhors with "juicy" on the bum while you're doing it. BTW, you are just a tub of lard. 112 pounds. OMG. (You know, my snarky sense of humor doesn't really translate in print. So to anyone reading, I'm not really being mean. I promise. But I am jealous. 1. You can wear small clothes still. and 2. 112 is still below my "ideal" weight.)

So you'll have to tell us how your pole dancing, er, I mean your Zumba classes go. Take pictures. And if you meet a doctor who will inject fat from the lower regions of your body to the upper regions of your body, make an appointment for me. =)

You know I love you. And I know you love me too, which is why you won't kill me for my terrible humor.
