Sitting trot - think I had it right?

I wish I had video of this, but hopefully the description will be enough for those of you who have proper feel to go on. I just recently started to hunker down and work on achieving a better seat. I always get my horse warmed up and going nice and round before I make an attempt, drop my stirrups and then I do a few strides at a time. Yesterday, I hit a groove like never before. I wasn't bouncing, he was trotting along in a nice medium trot, and it felt great. The only feeling I can describe, (and pardon the slightly more info than you need part) was feeling my alternating pieces of hip fat flop with each stride like they were actually absorbing the motion. (you know those extra 40 something rolls we get? I'm actually very thin, but still have them) If that makes sense to anyone who can sit effectively, does that sound right?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
