Thank you for the advice on Just Dance vs. Zumba. To be honest, I haven't tried Zumba at an actual facility yet. I'm so incredibly out of shape that I'm afraid if I go to a class I'll fail miserably. I do have Zumba DVD's and I can get through a song or two. I haven't enjoyed it enough to keep it up, but everyone keeps raving about Zumba that I thought I must be missing something and should give it another look. Maybe I'll try Just Dance instead and when I get in better shape I'll find a live Zumba class to try out! Any thoughts on Dance Dance Revolution? That came with the used Wii I purchased, but I've been so enamored with Wii Fit Plus that I haven't tried DDR yet.
I agree. Just Dance is more fun than wii Zumba. I don't even have Just Dance 4 yet but I have the first 3 and the one for kids. Notice I said I don't have it yet. It is definitely in my plans. Zumba at my gym is great but they only offer it once a week and two Saturdays a month. The other two Saturdays are country line dancing which is also fun. I am not really sure why I don't enjoy the wii Zumba as much. It's okay but the Just dance offers a variety of game options like setting it for all duets. My husband sometimes will dance with me. You can do one song at a time if you aren't up to more yet, but keep moving whatever you do. I love the wii Fit Yoga. I don't suppose it burns the maximum calories but it increases flexibility and strength and seems to improve my posture in the process. You've got a good plan in place. Just keep at it and before you know it you will start to love the feeling of your body moving!
So awesome! Wait, before you buy Zumba ( and I love Zumba, am hooked on it at my studio 12 down the street), I bought WII new zumba and it did not have current music etc but.... wait, there is hope, just dance for the wii is awesome! I love it! The only thing is it does not calculate calories, etc but want something fun and current and you will love it and my daughter and I love it too and even my husbanda nd boys did a few songs, try it, it is awesome sometimes they have it for 20 dollars or buy one get one free at target or used at game stop it is awesome! I have just dance 4 and it is great and it also helps if you ever go out and get to dance because you learn moves! Have fun, love the wii and if you have a dance class zumba in your area, go, I love it.! I tried a few different places but the one near me, they dim the lights, put on a disco ball, use current music and it is the best workout ever!!! I have such an endorphin rush and just dance is great too! Let me know, keep me posted and dance!!! WOOHOO
That is fantastic that you did not give up and found a form of fitness that you seem to enjoy! Way to go!

Since getting back on track 11 days ago, I have been eating right (staying in my ranges for calories, fat, protein and carbs in addition to eating a rainbow of fresh foods). But I have struggled with exercise. I don't like it and never have! Last week I purchased a used Wii that came with a fit board and several exercise games. Last night was the first time I tried it (15 minutes done) and today I did it again (this time for 26 minutes)! The routines, for me, are challenging, but not so much that I want to cry and quit. I feel more energy today than before and have set a goal of at least 10 min at least 5x per week for at least 4 weeks. When that goal is met, I will buy myself a wii Zumba game and increase my challenge.
