I love this photo. I feel gorgeous in this photo. And I love that it looks quiet and a bit serene even, but I was hooping in front of an audience of about 5,000+ people with a blaring cover band.

Just found a photo of myself on F*ck Yeah Hooping. I think I posted this either on my Tilly Whirls website or on HoopCity. The photo on the left is the month I started hooping (Feb. 2011). The one on the right is six months later (Aug. 2011), after losing 25 pounds. I didn’t practice as much in the winter months so my weight loss is still at 25 pounds. But I imagine that might change now that the weather’s getting warmer again.
