I walked into a new Zumba class in my new town last night and I didn't know a single person there.
It can be tough being the newbie.
It can be a little awkward.
How similar this was to my first Zumba class on January 12, 2010.
I remember that I weighed about 221 lbs at my first Zumba class.
I wore sweat pants and a big T-shirt.
I stood in the back of the room.
But I still figured out the moves (it took more than a few classes with my two left feet).
And it turned out that I made some great friends in that class back in early 2010.
So, let's fast forward...
Fast forward to last night. Here I am after Zumba class.
The workout clothes may be a little different now.
And I chose to stand in the front of the room this time.
...but I still know what it's like to be the newbie.
