When I started my [Little] Black Dress Challenge, my instructor told me with total confidence that Pilates would re-build me from the inside out. I'm not sure I really believed her.
I was worn out and I kept re-injuring the same ankle. Multiple black dress events loomed in my future. But I'm stunned by my progress. I'm not the same person that showed up that first day in the studio. Definitely stronger. Leaner. And it's a huge stress reliever. Friends tell me they see the difference as well, both in stature and attitude. I'm not quite able to leap tall buildings, but week by week I'm re-claiming more and more beloved pieces in my wardrobe!
