    Hi

    After a couple of years of injuries I am finally completely healed and have decided to try and give dancing another shot. I started dancing (contemporary and jazz) when I was three and had to give it up when I was 20. I am going to take this year see what I can do and IF i feel good enough try out for some companies next year so I can dance while I get a master's degree. IN order to do this I want to lose about 15 pounds. I am 127 pound now and 5'1'' so that will put me at about 112 my mom is concerned that I will be to thin I have a 26 inch waist and 31 inch hips right now. My question is does 15 pounds seem like to much?
