    I bought a hoola hoop last week, and did too much too soon, and got very badly bruised.
    This week, I am doing 2 10 minute sessions throughout the day, totalling 20 minutes in all. No bruises so far, and I can see my waist taking shape, and I feel a lot more toned
    I still can't keep up with the exercise dvd though, but I am determined to get there. Will keep you up-dated on my progress.

    I can't hula hoop for the life of me! It just falls straight to the floor. Obviously I have no rhythm :p
    I've heard Beyonce does it though, so it must be good! :D I'll be really interested to see if it does help lose inches from your waist.

    Yes, it is very normal to bruise when using a weighted hoop for the first few times. Even now, when I am trying a new trick, or hoop on a new 'area' I bruise - the body gets used to it very quickly though - be careful hooping on a bruise - you don't want to make matters worse

    My teacher recommends hooping for long enough to get a slightly increased heart rate - she considers 20 mins a day, in one chunk, to be perfect for toning and weight loss.

    Thank you for that, when I first got my hoop I used it for an hour, and the following day, I could hardly walk.
    Its amazing just how quickly I have toned up. I am actually getting through the warm up session on my dvd now. The only thing is, my hoop is huge, and I keep bumping into the furniture, so I will have to move my sofa next time I use it. Lol

    What's a weighted hula hoop? Is this different to the ordinary hoops I used to use when I was a kid?

    I bought a cheap one from toys r us, but because it wasn't weighted kept falling down. So I bought a weighted one, and its a lot easier, it never falls down, unless I hit the furniture.

    Slimandhappy, can I ask which hoop you'd recommend? I also bought a cheap one from toys'r'us which doesn't stay up at all and then read that a weighted one is better. A dvd sounds like a good idea too.

    Where did you get yours from?

    lol yes - and much bigger too :)

    Mine is 42" diameter - up to my hip bone - and it weighs about 700g.

    The smaller the hoops, the harder it is to control and keep up. The heavier the hoop (up to a point) the better the workout.

    ebay has a fair range - they are usually available from about 38" and up - I am 5'8" and 40/42 is perfect for me
