hey! so glad i found your post :) i'm also starting hula-hooping, and i do yoga regularly. have you been tracking your food intake and calories burned? most people go for about a 500-calorie per day deficit between the two in order to lose a pound a week (3,500 calories).
the best tools here, in my opinion, are friends and teams. you're certainly welcome to join ours, linked in my sig below, which is a chatty group who sticks to one main board and talks about everything.
good for you for not giving up. you'll figure out what works soon! just use the great articles and tracking tools and community here!
Always welcoming new members in The Hen House, the great, small, daily chatting, healthy lifestyle (and life) support team I co-lead: teams.sparkpeople.com/thehenhouse
My goal is to be fit, healthy, and sexy. I've lost 60+ pounds since my highest weight and 25+ recently, since a plateau from 2008-March 2013!
