ST@YFIT -- it seems close to me, but then again, I am American, and most everything seems close by my standards! LOL

Debb that would be great! When it gets closer I will have a better idea of our schedule. We are bringing my daughter and grandson this time as they have never met her. This will the first time we will have both our grandchildren with us at the same time. They will both be 5 by then. I know for sure that we will be visiting Twycross Zoo, my grandson loves monkeys! We want to take a day and drive north because we've never gone that direction and I'm sure my ex-daughter-in-law will have plans for us. We are blessed that she is so gracious to share her time with us.

EJ- We didn't make it that far west when we were there the first time. They lived in Ashford in Kent then and we drove all over the south sight seeing. We did go up to Liverpool that trip and loved it there.

hi Jane -- Burton on Trent is a scant hour from me -- easy, by American standards! :)

I am more than happy to drive out to say HI, if you find a few spare moments!

Hi and welcome! I like Zumba but I Love Aqua Zumba. So much easier on the knees and no one can see the wiggly bits! I didn't realize we had so many from England. I'm from Kansas City, Missouri. My granddaughter lives with her mother in Burton-on-Trent which sounds like it may be close to some of you. We are going to visit in October.

Thx so much for th welcome! I survived Zumba. I LOVED it. I was rubbish but I had the stupidest grin on my face the whole time as it was soooo much fun! But OMG it is hard work. Much harder than any other thing I've done! But loved it. Plus tracker said could have burnt 440-500 as I did the whole hour. If that's true that rocks!!!

Hi! Welcome to the team! I'm from London...always good to bump into a fellow Brit round here emoticon

Zumba is soooo much fun. I go to a class on Tuesdays at Fitness First. Like Woubbie said, it can be a bit tough when you start, and all the new moves are kinda confusing, but as my instructor says, if you're moving you're losing. Hope you enjoy it.

Good luck with hitting your goals.

Hi and welcome! My boys are now 15 and 16, but ohhhhh I remember those toddler years all too well. Two kids a year apart are substantially harder than twins would have been, don't you think? :)

Zumba will be a little challenging at the start but it's just so much fun that it's worth the stumbling and tripping! A word of advice - if you don't like it, try a different instructor. In my experience they're all VERY different and not all of them will jibe with your style.

Just a quick post to say hello! Starting my journey today. I am a stay at home mum of 2 boys (2&3). Trying to low carb it and up the exercise. Starting Zumba on Monday! Ahhhhh!!! Hoping to get a grip, get a bit fitter and a bit more like my pre-pregnancy body! Hoping to drop a couple of stone (20+ pds) in the next 12-18 months.
