Woman drops 302 pounds through diet and exercise!
Tomorrow finally came on August 17, 2009. After snapping that photo, Mills went into her purse and pulled out the tips the doctor had given her:
1. Eat 8 ounces of food every 3 hours
2. No sugary drinks
3. Do not skip meals
4. Do not tell anyone what you’re doing
So that’s what she did — or didn’t do, really. Almost two years later, Mills has dropped 232 pounds from her body and has trimmed her waist down to 26 inches (a size 6).
And she did it all without a trainer.
“I’ve always walked, no matter how hard it was,” says Mills. “Then I used Richard Simmons’ ‘Sweating to the Oldies’ because it’s low-impact. Now I Zumba, which is like Richard Simmons on speed.”
She doesn’t go crazy with her workouts. She walks about five times a week, sweats to Simmons twice a week and fits Zumba in when she can.
Zumba Fitness has replaced EA’s Crysis 2 at the top of the All Formats All Prices video game chart, giving publisher 505 Games its first ever All Formats No.1 and the first fitness title to reach the top spot since Wii Fit Plus back in the tail end of 2009.

Thank you all for coming out to play with us in San Francisco! We raised thousands of dollars for the American Heart Association :)
Thank you all for your energy, passion and happiness for one fun-filled afternoon of Zumba Fitness and for sharing your Sunday with me. It was wonderful to meet all of you and such a pleasure to dance, network and jam with you. It is clear that you all have a strong Zumba community in St. Louis and in the surrounding areas with your smaller teams of instructors. I appreciate your eagerness and excitement to learn new choreography – now, go make it your own! I look forward to seeing all of my favorite STL friends soon!!

Every single time I wear my Reebok Zigs, my feet are in heaven! They make dancing and fitness just that much better. When I was in St. Louis this past weekend, I looked around the room and not only were all of the Zumba Instructors wearing bright Zumbawear, but over half had on Reebok Zigs, in equally bright colors. I told myself that I wouldn’t wear them outside of class, but I just couldn’t help myself. I now sneak them on my feet in the office, walking around the city, running errands. Oh, the joy of happy feet!
