Fitness Weight Loss

Flashback: A Fitness Success Story ~ 110 Pound Weight Loss!

Written by Sanae Shea

One of the many reasons I love being a Zumba Fitness instructor is how it provides me the opportunity to interact with so many amazing women (and men).

I’m honored to part of their personal fitness journeys.

I love to watch them blossom, lose weight, gain confidence and most of all become empowered.

I love being on the dance floor with sweaty Zumba students when they are carefree and shakin’ what their momma’s gave them.  I call this beauty in motion….lots of motion and this is when the magic happens.


Meet Connie before her weight loss journey…

and Connie 110 pounds after!

Connie has been one of my Zumba regulars for almost as long as I’ve been teaching. When she walked in the door that first night, I would not have expected her to become one of my most dedicated and consistent students.

She faces more challenges and obstacles than most of us, yet she doesn’t give up.  In fact, she does the opposite.

I think she must have a mental list of everything anyone has ever told her she couldn’t do and is now spending her life trying to prove them wrong one check mark at a time. 

You go Connie!

Take a few minutes to read about Connie’s 110 pound weight loss journey. And then take a few minutes to ask yourself what is holding you back. If Connie can do it, you can do it!

No excuses.

  • CONNIE!!!!

    I agree! Connie is one of the most dedicated and hardworking women out there. Way to go!!
    I met Connie when I worked at NTV. I was very impressed by her dedication.


    Also, I want to THANK Connie for coming to interview the Her View From Home team at our Launch Party!!


    • That’s Connie, hardworking and dedicated! It would be impossible for anyone to lose 110 pounds without working hard and being insanely dedicated.

  • Sanae, I wish I could do one of your classes. I am struggling to lose my last 10-15 pounds of baby weight. I know exactly what’s holding me back – my late night cookie binges! Can’t wait to read Connie’s story!

    • I wish you could come to my classes Kathy! Are you keeping a food journal? I swear it makes all the difference in the world!
