No, not really... that was a little dramatic... but I do think I almost dislocated my hip.... All I know is, I twisted my leg the wrong way and I felt my hip pop, followed by a really bad burning sensation and now every time I put weight on my left leg my hip starts burning and hurting really bad.... so I am limping around like I'm crippled. I just hope the pain is gone by morning.... so I can walk to my van and drive to GameStop and give them back the evil Zumba game. LoL j/k... kind of. I might give it another try in a few days... but if I hurt myself again, I give up. LoL. I never realized how out of shape I am! Either that, or I'm just a really bad dancer. Actually, I think it's a little of both!

**I posted about this on my Facebook and one of my friends commented me and this is what she said:

"Well I was gonna ask if that game worked...guess it does if you cant get to the kitchen you will lose weight lol hope you feel better"

LOL


Well... I think I might have actually really injured myself last night! 'Cause I am noticing that the pain is a little better, to where I should be able to walk normal... but I can't. I am still limping (for lack of a better term) and no matter how hard I try to walk straight and take a normal step, I still limp. It's like one of my legs is suddenly longer than the other and it's making me walk funny. Great! Maybe I really did pop something out of place! Anyone else ever have this kind of feeling? It's hard to explain!

awww... feel better :(

I did fine until I hit the advanced (aside from being a bad dancer).  The advanced level has a male and I'm sorry, I can't dance like a man!

It's REALLY hard for me to get my heartrate way up.  I can do beginner and intermediate like it's nothing.  I'm in that strange fit but overweight group.

But yeah, I understand the bad dancing thing LOL

Aww feel better, I also was doing zumba for wii and hurt my knee so I havent done it in about three days. They should do a warm up stretch first. IMO

 I do an actual Zumba class and I love it!  I almost bought the Wii game yesterday, but figured my DH would bitch that I was still payin to go to a Zumba class if I had the game. Since I love the class so much I don't want to quit, so no game for me. I hope you feel better. Don't give up on it just yet :)
