I agree with you... I've been trying different things on the step by step dvd and I really struggle when they get to the fast part... good grief I'm uncoordinated!!! I guess this is one of those things that you have to keep trying and trying to get it right. Even just attempting the steps makes me sweat, so I guess that's a good thing. I'm moving, right?

Dahneeser, I just received mine yesterday too. I did the Step by Step dvd yesterday and I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I was flipping the tv off when they sped up and my feet just stared up at me and laughed lol. I could do it slow well sort of. I think it will take a few more times of doing the step by step dvd to learn it. I can't wait to do it again later today!

Normally when I try to lose weight my boyfriend wasn't as supportive as I needed. But last night as the darn bag of chips was next to me, I picked up the bag. He kept saying, well you will un-do all the excercise you did earlier. He wasn't mean but it was enough to make me stop and only have a few than a whole bunch of them. It really helped alot. We hope soon to start trying for a baby but I need to be at a healthier weight first. So that will be my motivation. I have a son through my ex-husband and he's 13.

I read your post and thought... gosh, that sounds just like me... ordering dvd's and then not doing them. I really hope that Zumba is different for me. I just received the Exhilarate program in the mail yesterday. I hope to try it today. Maybe someday, I'll join a class, but for now, doing it at home I think will be the best option for me. I really hope that this is the program that will "spark" some interest for me. I'm so overweight right now, more than I ever have been in my life. Like you, I'm battling my own demons... but again, I hope this will be the start to a new chapter in my life. I'm tired of starting over again and again and again.

I'm glad that I was channel surfing the night that QVC had Exhilarate as their TSV. I did get it on easy pay... even though I couldn't afford it, I figured that I can't afford not to! I hope that someday, I'll be a success story too.

Woo hoo it shipped today and according to the website my estimated delivery date is June 4!! This is a few days sooner than first expected. I'm getting really excited to start doing zumba! I would go to a class but regardless if nobody would notice, I need to get past my own demons first. I'm scared to go to a class because I have 10 left feet and don't want to look dumb trying to learn the moves. I know nobody really notices but it's just me being silly. Once I get some of the moves and a little more confidence going then maybe I'll try a class. Is there anything I can do to before my dvd's arrive to get ready? I've started watching what I eat and drinking more water.

After a lot of thinking, I have never done zumba before and read lots of reviews and decided to buy the new dvds. I was really hoping to find a website that I coud do 3 payments on it instead of paying all at once. I bought through Amazon and by the time it was all said and done it was $10 cheaper than buying from zumba's website. I will have to keep coming on here for motivation because I'm notarious for buying excercise stuff and never using them. It is supposed to be here between June 7-10. I think what scares me the most is because I spent nearly $100 and I'm still looking for a job. I just moved to Florida a month ago and searching for work.
