Zumba! — The Bump
April 2011 Moms

Zumba!

Hey, all! 

I've been struggling with getting rid of my baby bump for the last 3 months, and I went to my first Zumba class last night! It was fun, even though I totally screwed up all the moves. There were enough people in the class that I didn't feel too self-conscious, and there were different ages (plenty of gray-haired ladies) and sizes of people, too. The best part is that I checked online to find out how many calories I could have burned, and apparently, 50 minutes can burn 450 calories!! That's way better than the 45 minutes of jogging/running I've been doing for 200 calories. Obviously, I haven't seen any results yet, but I felt pretty good afterward.

 Just my 2 cents!

Re: Zumba!

  • I am so glad you posted this. LO was born on April 15th and I am still struggling to lose my baby bump too. People have even asked me when I am due...several times Embarrassed. It's embarassing and kind of hurts my feelings. I too have looked into Zumba but never gone b/c I was worried I wouldn't know how to do anything or dance the way the other women did. I think I may have to give it a shot now! I have only lost about 3 pounds other then what I lost initially from the delivery. I hope this works out for you and me! It's not the same as just being big b/c it is all in the stomach area and makes you still look pregnant :( I will be MORE then happy when I get rid of the "bump". Good luck and thanks for posting!

  • I'm in the same boat... I've lost all the pregnancy weight, but you wouldn't know it, because I still look preggers! It's all in my belly, too. Try to find a class at a big fitness center, if possible - that way you can hide while you're trying to learn the moves :) 

    I also just ordered the BeFit-Mama DVD;it's supposed to target the underlying ab muscles that get ignored when you do crunches and the like. I'll definitely let the board know if it works!

     Good luck!
