Yes Peasant tops were "in" in the 70's.

Red and black always look nice together. But love the idea of sparkly as you dance.

Post a photo of you in the top and let us help!

Were peasant tops popular in the 70s? I have either a sparkly top that is from when I was 300 pounds. So it doesn't look fantastic or a red peasant top with my black pants. ?? My hair is going to be farrah faccetty. I'll be doing ABBA Take a Chance on me. Which I figure people will definitely be taking a chance on me when they vote!

I feel better when I'm hooping but when I'm not hooping I start freaking out. Legit. I have a great start all figured out. Everything else is in the air.

I've already seen two videos and I'm terrified and the stress and the nerves are wrecking me. fdlfkdjslfjdslkjdskljdfjdlksjfd I'm terrified. I'm not a slick hula hooper with a polypro and costumes. Why did I get myself into this? I need pep talks! And I can count on everyone's votes (and hopefully everyone you know?)?

i have seen both of those that you posted. after i watched your, i watchecd a bunch of others. that happens to me all the time....i watch one video to see how someone does a trick, and then the next thing i know, hours have gone by and im still sitting on the floor in the middle of my hoop! i am sorry that i said that about her video, i just assumed she was gonna be some tiny little thing! you are right about the challenge of losing more! when do you find out the results?

Here is one from last year:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqAkAO-nQXo

This is hers. Now note: losing 30 pounds is much different than losing 180 or 100 pounds.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vNK4bElhjg www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vNK4bElhjg

Here are a few more that I've seen. There's about 30+ I've seen:

too bad for her she missed the point. but i saw tons of entries that were pretty much the same. hers was probably one of them. yours stood out to me because not only do you look and dress different, you said different things, and you had a lot of different shots from different times and places. i am not sure what the goal of "hooping idol" is, but i think you've got a pretty good shot

Thank you!

I want to know when the decision will be out. I'm hoping tonight cause I'm dying!

But let me tell you, one of the girls, who tried out commented on my page on how to lose weight (follow my weight loss video) on the page which annoys me. I'm sure ever overweight person in the world feels like that. I know how to lose weight. I'm not eating correctly. But I'm maintaining 50 pounds lost from years ago. Totes annoying!

Thank you everyone! This week they are going to whittle the choices down to 20ish. Last year it went from 75 to 23. So yeah the response has been massive. It could be as high as 100 or more people that entered this year! After that, there will be a vote!

Great video! I have not look at the others but you would be a worthy contestant - I constntly use you as an example of "different" people that is needed to give other perspective. I plan to give a lecture for health care people and begin with the story of "fluffy" hoopers and that the solution of a wider hoop might never have been discovered, had it not been for the experience of a "fluffy" hooper like you!

Hadn't heard of Hoop Idol, so I took a look. I guess next step is to see if you get picked to be a Hoop Idol competitor? Good luck! :)

Great video! I loved hearing all of the ways that hooping has helped you and changed your life. I can relate to so much of what you said. Especially loved when you said you think you look fantastic hooping, because you really do! Way to go!

In everyone else's video, they are talking face to face with the camera. But I didn't feel like I could do that without screwing up my speech flow. So hopefully that won't hinder me! I hope it counts enough that I went and hooped on the side of a busy road and in front of the courthouse.

Thank you! I figured the zombie shirt would go well!

Thanks for posting the video! It was still uploading when I went to sleep!

Yeah, I'm nervous because I don't think I'm that awesome. And I'm sort of afraid of the critiques that I may get. But hey I have to get past the first round!

Do you know what is currently being uploaded to the youtube? My hooping idol entry. I wasn't going to enter but something spoke to me this morning that said to do it. And now I'm doing it. And I kept doing the same 5 moves over and over again.
