I've been going religiously since after the holidays. I go 4x a week. In the month of January I lost 3.5 pounds and I just got on the scale yesterday and had gained 1 pound. I do feel differently and have seen some changes. Not gonna give up that's for sure. =)

Stay calm and Zumba

Yes, I lost about 30 pounds and I think Zumba had a lot to do with it, although I did change my eating habits as well. I have a hard time sticking to exercise, but I find Zumba to be really fun and I look forward to doing it. It makes me feel sexy and I find myself just moving around the house dancing to music more often. If I don't do it at least twice a week, my body and soul feel it. I makes me feel good about myself!

I am new to Sparkpeople, but not new to Zumba...

Zumba is what inspired me to join a gym about a year ago, I wanted exercise that was fun, and I love to dance so figured it was the way to go.

When I started I had already lost a good bit from my highest weight of 260....my weigh in at the gym was 211, and I now weigh 185, so I credit Zumba with the 26 lbs loss!

The other thing Zumba has done for me, is to help me reclaim my body, the joy of moving & feeling like a woman again, appreciating being female. That is probably the hugest benefit to me. And, my hips have never been so loose & free! :)

I do the same as well. Still eat the things I like, but might make the recipe a little different (use 90 % lean meat, or turkey. Have a turkey burger on a pepperidge farm deli thins instead of bread. My portions are a lot better, and never need seconds because I'm full.

Yes, I did change my eating habits. My portions are smaller, and I don't go back for 2nds often. I still eat what I love, and limit fats and carbs but no special diet.

Weighed this morning and at 20 lbs lost. Class last night was great. My sister burned 700 calories and I burned 850. I used pound & 1/2 wrist weights this time and ohhh I felt it. Can't wait for the class on Thursday. So glad we have 3 classes a week.

I am at 19lbs lost since I started (14lbs since I started Spark), and will weigh tomorrow and should be 20 or 21 lbs lost. Love Zumba. Started June 12th. Was going 2 days a week, and this week they added a 3rd class for the week and very excited. My sister and my daughter goes with me and makes it fun to have them there. We also walk 2 - 3 days a week. I am so happy with the life change I have made to exericse more and eat healthier. I never skip a meal, and try to eat 6 smaller meals a day so I burn calories more consistant. Will post tomorrow and let you know what my weight loss is and how many calories I burned at tonights class.

Whoa, I've got to step it up!! I'm hoping that my schedule frees up a little over the summer to allow for me to get to more classes. I'm glad to see so many are experiencing such positive results.

I've lost at least 20 lbs since I began 'feeling the music'! Been at a weight plateau since late January BUT have continued to lose inches with the help of Zumba - so I'm still enjoying the party. Have recently incorporated strength training to help bust out of the plateau, so hoping that this also helps with endurance for more heartier Zumba sessions!

Love love love Zumba! I've not lost the 20 pounds, but I've lost several inches (no idea why they weight is still there) but I'm hoping to lose about 50 total! Despite my lack of dance skills, I love it. Nothing gets me to sweat or move like Zumba. Cheers to my inches and cheers to losing the pounds!

Yes, I've lost over 20 lbs and also lots of inches. I used to be a size 18 and now I am around 14 (haven't really measured myself yet). I love Zumba because it is so much fun but also because it has given me the ability to lose all the weight I have been trying to loose.
