Hi Melrose, Zumba certainly helps me. I started it in Sept. '09 and got certified in jan. '10. I've been teaching since then and I just love teaching it. You will definitely sweat of pounds IF you dance full out. When the teacher says you can step it up by jumping, do it. Use your arms a lot, it raises your heart rate. But, if it's hurts, don't do it. Keep your knees over your ankles, never the toes. Once you et the footwork, you can move everything else too. Have fun and don't worry about what anyone sees. Of course, Weight Watchers also helps me. I track EVERYTHING I eat and keep meticulous numbers each week about points and exercise points. It's the only way to keep my small sixe now and I know that's what I have to do to maintain it. They say after 6 years, it gets easier.
Living goal: 122
WW gave me the tools and Zumba gave me the motivation and confidence to keep going. I'm happy with who I am now.
