Curvy Hoopers Spreading the hOOplove! :)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, November 30, 2012


I don't usually post videos to YouTube. I mainly stick with my peeps here and on Facebook. But hooping.org is trying to encourage hoopers of all sizes. They asked all of us "curvy" hoopers to submit a video. After much thought, I decided I wanted to be part of that message. And, since my hOOp journey has also been my SparkJourney, I wanted to share the video with y'all too.

I asked Audrey if she wanted to be in the video and she said, "Of course, Mom! Your hoop story is really about us. We have to do this together." Gosh, I love that kid! Remember when I found that old video of her hooping in the 4th grade talent show?

That girl has become a young woman, but she's still my favorite exercise partner. And guess what? She's on Day 13 of her exercise streak. Go Audrey!


my favorite workout buddy

Her BFF, Emily, went with us and helped with the camerawork. She's become a hooper too. Plus, she's willing to ride in the back seat of the HoopMobile, with all the hoops. She said it was comfortable, but I know she's just being nice.


Emily's a good sport.

So, hopefully, this will encourage somebody not to worry so much about what they think they look like. Life is meant to be lived, no matter what size you are, have been, or will be. GO PLAY!!!!

    You are truly amazing.. I can't wait until my back gets better and I can use my hoop again :) I have 4 kids, and my 5 year old son is AMAZING with my hoop! I don't know how he does it but he can keep it going forever, and even get it moving again when it starts to stop! I guess all my kids need their own hoops :)

    I just started hooping -- I bought one from a coworker who was making the really large ones a few years ago. After doing a "virtual hula hooping" exercise on the Wii, I went and got my giant one out of the garage. What a workout. From your video it appears I may want to invest in a smaller one so that I can do more than just swing it around my waist.

Great video!!!

    This was wonderful! I love your attitude and personality...very encouraging. I bought a hoop last year and have only used it once. Time to dust it off and give it another try.

    SUCH an inspiration! We're very close in size, age and height - and I started a small obsession with hooping this past summer (so fun!). Can't express how much I love this video. Beautiful (it and you!)!

    Hey, a Hoop Tree! I've never seen one of those before - must be an American thing as I'm sure they don't grow in the UK. It looks great though - just wait until the hoop fruits ripen and then pick one the right size to play with!

Thanks Shelli and Audrey for reminding us that there's more to life than the number on the scale, or indeed any number at all.
