**Updated** I hit my goal weight on Friday December 3rd and passed it by a pound. I am studying to become a Zumba instructor. My certification is set for January 9th in Boston. I already have a class lined up to teach on Tues nights starting mid-January plus two more in the works. I am extremely lucky to have an amazing Zumba instructor who has been guiding me. I am able to borrow all of her collected info and music and choreography to get me started. I am nervous but excited and can't believe that I am actually doing this. Looking back I could never have pictured taking a fitness class nevermind teaching one. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to my husband and daughters for always supporting me in everything. I would not have had to courage to get this far without you. You guys are my world and I love you!

I'm a 34 year old wife and mother of two beautiful daughters. I started my weight loss journey 4 years ago and have lost 110 pounds. I have 5 more to hit my goal weight. Anything after that will be my bonus prize. I'm excited to be close to my goal. I also can't wait to start a new journey called "maintaining". I've joked with my friends that I feel like I've gone to college for weight loss seeing as it's taken me 4 years and alot of learning. I have had some stumbling blocks along the way. Alot of ovarian cysts and endometriosis. I've had to have a laperoscopy four times and that really puts a damper on working out. I did gain about 20lbs back last winter after my last surgery and lost that all plus some this summer. I hope to stay on the path I am on now. I feel great and have a ton of energy.

    Congrats on your awesome weight loss!! I have been a Zumba instructor for about a year and a half now and it is amazing. I wish you nothing but luck with your new classes. The first one is the hardest and then it gets easier. Just have fun and be confident. There is great support on the ZIN network which you'll hear all about during certification. I'd be happy to help you in any way as well.

    Congrats again! Zumba love!
