I had pretty much given up on losing weight since I ballooned back up to 251 lbs after losing weight and getting down into the 220s. My sister had been attending Zumba classes for a few months and I hadn't joined her until this past Tuesday because of my work schedule. I went with her to this class and I AM HOOKED!! My family parents are originally from Mexico and I inherited their love for dance but I thought Zumba was another one of those lame dance workouts. I was SO wrong! I had so much fun! It's all I was thinking about since the class. Unfortunately my work schedule doesn't allow me to attend any classes near by so I decided to go out looking to buy zumba DVDs (not knowing I could only buy through the website or eBay and what not) so my second option was to get the Wii game. Of course I didn't own the Wii system but always wanted one. So I gave in and bought the whole Wii system and Zumba game because I am so obsessed with it! Now I'm itching to get some Zumba gear so I can have the whole feel!
I go to Weight Watchers and teach Zumba. That's how I lost 33 pounds and keep it of fnow. It's so nice to be small. Really, it is. Old habit die hard, so I go to WW at least 2-3 times a mnth and I track EVERYDAY! I mean it!

WW gave me the tools and Zumba gave me the motivation and confidence to keep going. I'm happy with who I am now.
Hi my name is Alicia, and I have been doing Zumba for almost a month now. My goal with Zumba is to lose 73 pounds and to enjoy working out for every minute of it (and to get in touch with my Spanish roots, lol) While I like it, I still am new to it. I haven't really gotten to the point where I'm addicted to it but I'm sure at some point I'll get it. Anyways, I found this Zumba forum and thought I would say hi and just introduce myself!
