I've lost 40 pounds! THANK YOU ZUMBA!!!

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I'm really still in a state of shock.

When I was a kid, I was always skinny. REALLY skinny. I ate whatever I wanted, and it never affected me. I never worked out, did sports, or really was much more than the normal, run around and play kid. That was probably it for awhile.

After quitting smoking and working a desk job, goodbye metabolism, hello weight. I was a solid size 7 until about age 24-25. I went from 130-140-150-160-170-and finally up to 180!

I was 165 when I got married in May 07.

I am now down to 140, lighter than my workout-nut mother, and my feel sexier than ever! my husband sure thinks so too. He has never seen me this light, I don't think, and if he did, it was briefly in the beginning.

THANK YOU ZUMBA!

    I have lost 2 inches off of my waiste in about a month and a half. It may be from running but I like to think it is the Zumba. Love it! Its great that you teach it, so much fun. It makes me smile from the inside out!

    Wow, that is amazing, Sandy!!! I have lost 55 and can honestly say the Zumba has helped me keep it off for more than a year. It is such a good feeling when you Zumba, it just makes you smile. How can anyone be in a bad mood when you Zumba? It just makes my day!! Where and when in the convention? Do you have to be an instructor to go? I would be interested......

    Congrats again!!
