I did reward myself yesterday with the Hoop! Went and bought the Hoopnotica travel hoop yesterday from SportEve in Culver City. Had to try it out and it's fun, though just for that 2 minutes I was already feeling it! Awesome.
And this is the first picture I've seen of myself in a LONG LONG TIME in which I look good -- meaning I don't look fat. Much work to do, but I'm on my way!
