    Hey! So I'm a chubby girl...more than chubby....I'm 5'9'' and I weigh in at about 310...The strange thing is, I don't LOOK 310. I look at tops 240. And I'm not just deluding myself. This is what people have told me.

    Well anyway, I was crazy last semester. I was worried about gaining the freshman 15, but I didn't do anything different. I ate ok (I always have) except an occasional ice cream cone. I walked around campus but didn't do any strenuous, out of my way exercise. I lost around 15 or 20 pounds. I was at about 330 at the beginning of the semester.

    This semester, I've decided to be more active. But I don't want to exercise for the sake of exercising. I want it to be more productive than that. So I've decided to dance. I am enrolled in a belly dancing class and also am involved with university swingers. They teach swing dancing one night a week.

    So I will be dancing on Tuesdays for an hour and a half and Wednesdays for an hour and a half. As long as I don't change my diet too much and avoid splurging on oreos and stuff like that (not going to happen), do you think adding dance will be good? Should I be doing other exercise or is this a good thing for me to do?

    I started raving last spring and I've lost a few inches since then.
    I go out dancing at least 2-3 nights a week.
    I love dancing. It's a great exercise.

    Great idea! Dancing, like swimming, flows so naturally and is one of the best exercises in my opinion. If you practice your routines on off days (when you don't actually attend the classes) then you'll get two benefits--mastery of the routines and an effective cardio workout. Have fun! :)
