Last year I started going to Planet Fitness-Jenkintown. I like the stationary bike the most. The highest RPM I got to is 112. I usually spend 30 minutes there. I was going three times a week. But then I started going to zumba at my church. Before the instructor would do 30 minutes of zumba and 30 minutes of step. I loved zumba, hated step. Then this year she started with just zumba for an hour. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Zumba. I finally found something I can spend the rest of my life doing. I used to play it on the xbox but something about a class makes it all different. I mean between the people and the instructor I feel motivated and it's like a party every week. Then my instructor started classes on Saturdays and its only a couple minutes from my house. So now I go to Zumba twice a week, an hour each class. I still go to Planet Fitness on Mondays and I've been going with my mom. She lost a lot of weight before even going to planet fitness with me. But if I don't go on Mondays I exercise at home using Zumba for kinect or Just dance 4. I'm vowing that this is it. I've been yo-yoing since 2006 and I'm done. I have an exercise regime that works for me and as of lately I've been trying to stick with a vegetarian/vegan diet. If I cheat I only cheat with chicken or fish. I haven't had red meat since January and I haven't ate pork for a long time. I seriously can live without both of those plus it's so fatty. Life is getting better. Right now in the middle of taking care of me I am also a caregiver to my grandfather. I'm helping my grandmother take care of him. He has vascular dementia. I am also dealing with my parents divorcing after 26 years of marriage. But in the midst of the storm God is still good. I got my license in May '12 and a car in June '12. My nephew was born October 13,2012. I was working at Macy's-Montgomeryville. In 2011 I did the Light the night Walk with my sister who is a two-time Non-Hodgkin s Lymphoma survivor. God has been good to all of us and I know that He will work all of the bad situations out.

    Thanks Lil Shine! Yeah my sister isn't a big fan of it either. She likes structure like step. We're opposites when it comes to that lol.

    Aww :( Until you find one there's zumba games on the wii and xbox kinect and my instructor even uses some of the songs on there in class and there's dvds so you can do it at home.

    Good for you. I would love to try Zumba, but I can't find one in my area I can go to because of my work schedule. Gotta find a way to do it!
