I have struggled with weight for most of my adult life, going up and down between 170 and 190 over and over again. But then something happened...I reached the point where I honestly realized that I didn't like the way that I felt or looked. My lack of energy, size 16 clothes and gowing health concerns made me step back a moment and find a way to change the course I was on.

My first Zumba class was April 6, 2010. I was hooked! I really credit Zumba more than anything for helping ...

My first Zumba class was April 6, 2010. I was hooked! I really credit Zumba more than anything for helping me to stay motivated and taking off the weight. It is so much fun! I can hardly believe that there is an exercise this fun that can burn so many calories. It's amazing!

I'm not at my goal weight yet, but I'm half-way there and I feel great! So far, I've gotten down to a size 12 and felt my energy increase significantly. I'm so excited to be taking the journey toward better health. I can't wait to see what I can accomplish this year!

I love quotes ~~ Enjoy!

A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison. - Francis Bacon .....

"Albert Einstein discovered that a tiny amount of mass is equal to a huge amount of energy, which explains why, as Einstein himself so eloquently put it in a famous 1939 speech to the Physics Department at Princeton, "You have to exercise for a week to work off the thigh fat from a single Snickers." ~Dave Barry, Dave Barry Turns 50

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends. ~Author Unknown

Hey Carrie! Thanks for your comment. Being an instructor it's my goal to help others get excited about working out and so it means a lot for you to say that. I am inspired by reading your comments about how you look forward to Zumba. It's so true that if we find something to love, and we do a lot of it, it can make a difference! I thank God everyday for bringing Zumba into my life and for Beto Perez, who created Zumba!
