Ladies at my zumba class say I've definitely lost weight and they can tell. :carrot: Which is a great thing, getting people to notice and comment on it. I've lost 28 lbs so far and am still having trouble seeing it.

Do you think you can notice the weight loss on me yet?

You can TOTALLY tell that you have lost weight! In every picture there is a noticeable difference. Good for you!!:carrot:

I strongly recommend that you continue to take pictures so that you will have an amazing testimony to show when you reach goal. :)

Definitely can see a difference. Look at your belly, you lost inches from belly and everywhere. You did great and keep up the beautiful work!

What a difference! Honestly, if you can't see the difference, I would suggest putting on the same clothes and try to notice how much looser they are. You are doing an amazing job!

My shirts feel looser! But its hard to see the difference! Pants are about same but most of my pants are stretchy :o

But thank you all, so so much. You don't even realize what a confidence booster this is for me. It feels nice and makes me wanna kick some more BUTT!!! :carrot:

You are doing awesome! Absolutely, the difference is showing! You are brave, I've been too chicken to try Zumba, although it seems like so much fun! Are you enjoying it? :)

I looove Zumba. It's not all I do, I also kickbox with my punching bag and walk, which is why I've lost nearly 30 lbs in just 6 weeks. But yeah, I do zumba twice a week and its by far my funnest workout. You should give it a try! It can be hard but the best part is you do it at your own pace. If you cant do a move, you do your own rendition of it that you can do until it gets easier. And it's just so much fun! Never feels like an hour has passed when I get done. Plus its taught me some pretty sexy dance moves! :devil: :carrot:

Thank you all, so much! It's great when people can notice. Definitely makes me want to keep pushing. And I LOVE my attitude this time around. I have given up so many times but I know for sure this time I'm sticking with it. A year ago, I would have NEVER put up pictures of myself like this. I even put them on facebook! I'm not ashamed, I'm PROUD for what I've done and will continue to do. A year ago I also would have NEVER went to a zumba class by myself without a friend. I made myself go, I made myself walk everyday, I made myself buy a punching bag, heck I even just made myself do a half hour with it after walking 2 hours, and I see now its all worth it!

Thanks again :)

I love your attitude too!! This is a big deal with weight loss and it matters a lot! I used to be such a debbie downer with my weight loss efforts but NOT this time!! Positive thinking always! :carrot:

All this zumba talk is making me really curious about it!! Is it through a gym or does everyone find a dance studio or something??

Ian - Thank you so much!

hhm6 - Thank you also! As for the zumba, mine is through a private instructor who rents slots at a local community center. So I just show up, pay my $5 and enjoy the class! A lot of instructors are like that but there are also some at gyms, some of which you need to be a member for, and some not.

You can go to "find a zumba instructor" on Zumbas official website and it will list all of the instructors near you and where they teach their classes and what times, etc. You should go! It's a lot of fun. :)

You're doing awesome! :carrot:

I know how hard it is to see the difference in yourself, especially in the early stages, but keep taking those photos! :yes: In the future you'll be so happy you did.

We started out in a very similar place, and I know from experience that stretchy pants are very forgiving in either direction. :dizzy: Losses and gains are very hard to gauge through them, but it sounds like you're going into this with a great attitude. Just keep going and trust the process. :hug:
