I love Zumba. It's the only real exercise I can say that about. I go about 3x a week. I've lost 2 inches in my waist and an inch in my hips since started on April 9th but have only lost 1 lb even tracking my foods here. Does anyone else that does Zumba regularly have results like this where you're losing inches but not weight?

I have heard of many people losing weight with it too. I know I need to do it a minimum of 3x a week. Wondering if I need to get there more.

Focusing on watching my food portions more this week, watching WHAT I'm eating, and drinking more water. Maybe walking the days I don't get to Zumba will help too. I just don't seem to get a good weight loss. It's only been 13 days but thought I'd see more than 1 1/2 lbs so far.

i think inches are more important than actual weight, you are probably building muscle which weighs more than fat! I love zumba too and am having the same thing even though i'm doing it four times a long as the inches are coming off that means I'm getting thinner so I'm happy! I once lost twenty four inches in total from areas of my body so was a lot thinner but had only lost three pounds....

I think 1 1/2 lbs in 13days is fantastic. Have patience it will all come together for you. Zumba love it.

I don't do Zumba, but I have been doing between 1 and 4 high intensity classes a week, and running twice a week for over 6 months now, and have lost almost no weight, but have lost 3 inches off my waist, bust and hips. It's not all about the lbs.

If your body is like mine I always have to tone first. Once I have built up muscle my body starts to lose fat. I have lost two inches on my waist in ten days on zumba but only 1 pound. I am focusing on the inches not the weight.
