Losing weight is always a question of mind over matter but for one morbidly obese wife and mother, getting healthy was easy and fun. Mrs Moore, who measures 5ft 5in, credits the low-impact activity with toning her core right from the beginning when she found she had to keep bending over to pick up the fallen hoop from the ground. Writing about her experience for the Huffington Post she explained how within three months of learning the skill, she had lost a whopping 40lbs and had begun to enjoy the twisting thanks to instructional DVD's from Hooopnotica .
Mrs Moore's fitness kick began in 2008 after she was asked to leave a fairground ride when the safety bar would not close over her stomach.
A cyclical, linear story: Mrs Moore changed her lifestyle after being asked to leave a fairground ride in 2008 because the safety bar would not close over her stomach Addicted to eating, she and her husband, Keith, had to reexamine their approach to food and the way they mindlessly ate out of boredom, as well as their lazy lifestyle.
'It took me over two weeks just to be able to keep the hoop spinning around my waist, but from day one, I felt a tremendous difference in my core strength, confidence and energy,' she gushed on the healthy living blog. The reinvigorated exercise fan also changed her diet, splitting her Starbucks skinny Frappuccinos with her husband and reaching for grapes instead of chips when she was reading or watching television.
