    there is something new that i saw on that tv land show "she's got the look". its called jump snap. Sorta like a jump rope, but its high tech & w/o a rope. Its really cool http://jumpsnap.com/

    As for belly dancing, I think ideally an instructor would be nice so you can be corrected if you're doing a move or two wrong. But iIf you can't go to lessons and you have cable or satellite TV, see if you have FitTv. (I know DirecTv has it.) Tthere's an instructional program called "Shimmy" that teaches belly dancing.

    I've done it a few times and enjoy it. (And yes, they were right... you do feel a little sexy ). Once I reach my mini-goal of OneDerland, I'd love to go to a real class!

    OK, so I've been doing some research on the hooping thing. The folks at Mayo clinic says it works. So if they say it, I definitely believe it. I'm going to see if I can find one at a local sporting goods store. If not, I'll order one online. I loved hooping when I was younger. Even sprained my ankle trying to hoop with one around my waist, one around an ankle and one around my neck at the same time (LOL!).

    I'm also going to look for a belly dancing class that isn't too expensive.

    I think jumping rope really works. Too bad doing it for about 2 minutes kicks my arse.

    A friend at work is 60 years old and she goes to belly dancing classes, she loves it.

    I like doing routines that are fun and use muscles I hadn't used before...

    I do isometrics while sitting at the computer...

    I never liked the hoola hoop as a kid, so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care for the weighted ones.

    I do love love love my "mini stepper"! Looks like this:

    I have a giant treadmill out on the porch, it's just too big... but it works great, anyone want it? Come get er!

    Hula Hooping is Awesome and it totally facinates my fiance! I've never heard of a weighted hula hoop though, I bought mine at walmart for like $4-$5 and it has water in it that i guess maybe weights it a little more than usual and it helps keep the momentem up too.

    I love belly dancing! It's great for your stomach (inside and out) ...Also good at leaning up love handles and hips and trimming your waist and yeah...definately sexy.

    If you can find an instructor somewhere that's probably the best way to do it because some of the moves you can hurt yourself if you do it wrong....BUT I know I can't even afford to get lessons-this website www.BHUZ.com has lots of info and message boards with professionals and beginners to answer questions about that sort of thing if you're really interested

    Default Hoola Hoop and Belly Dancing

    Does anyone do either? I've heard that hoola hooping with a weighted hoop for about 20 minutes a day does wonders for the abs, love handles. Anyone know if that's true or not? I'd like to give it a try but can't find a weighted hoop.

    And belly dancing just seems like it would be helpful (and sexy). I tried it a long time ago from on Demand and it felt good.
