thanks so much for your replies. I definitely think that it would be great for me to learn how to make my own hoops - but am not ready to tackle that skill yet. I had been looking into hula hoops for quite awhile, found one in my local walmart this weekend and have given that a try. Now, I just need to learn how to use it effectively! I also looked online and do not see any classes in my area. :(

A bigger hoop is good for practice. It is fairly easy to make your own and pretty cheap. I'd recommend taking a hooping class though; not only can you get advice from the instructor about the size of hoop you need, it's a lot of fun. When I first got into hoops, I actually organized a bunch of my friends and arranged for a private class at my apartment complex's recreation area.

there's a certain body size to hoop size ratio calculation to determine how big a hoop you need. I'm assuming you can look it up online, I don't know it off the top of my head but have read/heard about it before.

I am interested in purchasing a hula hoop. I don't want to spend a lot in case I can't learn how to do it. I am five feet tall and need to lose app. 40 lbs. I saw two hula hoops on line - one is 37 " around and 2.5 lbs. The other is 41 " around and three lbs. Can anyone advise me on which might be the better purchase?
