OK 3 weeks in to the hoop spinning. I have lost 2 lbs and 1/2 inch on my waist. I am getting faster at it as well. 10 min. twice a day for me at this. Now I am not a large person but at my age I was getting thicker through the middle and I was not happy about it. You truly have to know me to understand that when I get pissy i take care of things. I refuse to move up another jean size. I will remain a size 8 until I can fit into my size 6 again.
