Hi, I'm Jessica!

I've been a Zumba Instructor since 2011 and I love every minute of it! However, being overweight while teaching Zumba class makes me feel like a hypocrite. Zumba Fitness was designed to help people lose weight, and here I am teaching people while being 100+ pounds overweight. I do have people who say I've given them inspiration from being overweight, but that's not the legacy I want to leave.

I've always been overweight....HOWEVER....I want to change this! I want to be healthy and feel like I've accomplished a huge thing in my life! Besides, I need to take care of my temple! (1 Cor. 19-20).

I love Zumba too! I can't go as often as I would like since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia last year but it is SO fun! Have you heard of MixxedFit Dancing? I'm in Washington state and the Dojo where I first started taking Zumba at created a program of exercise/dance called MixxedFit and its so amazing!

Both are a great way to burn calories and have a blast too! Kudos to you for even being able to teach Zumba! You're in the right place to help you on your journey to lose weight. I have over 100 lbs to lose as well. It is a journey but SparkPeople makes it a little more organized and manageable so you can see where you can improve and make changes.

I love the support here as well! I've met many supportive and encouraging people within this site and its truly a blessing!

Blessings,

Debbie
