Ha, I suck at dancing, but I love doing it anyway. I make up most of my own moves and stuff. I used to sometimes put a good CD on my stereo and just dance in my workout room or the living room while I was cleaning. I won't be dancing on New Year's though...I will most likely be visiting my friends and playing board games. :)

Three years ago I lost the majority of my 70lbs by dancing at clubs!!!!!! But I gained 40 back when I got with my boyfriend...boooo. I'm working on taking it off. Hip Hop REALLY burns calories.
