Ness started her hooping journey a year ago and fell in love with it instantly, documenting her progress along the way, while never planning to share it. In December she started trying to lose weight again and now, 8 months later, she’s lost over 60 pounds and counting. She said, “Even though hooping itself didn’t cause me to lose weight, I owe every pound to my love for hoop dance. I found myself with hoop dance.” This is awesome and Hooping.org wishes her a very happy first hoopiversary. She lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. Soundtrack: “She Wolf” by Shakira (on iTunes).
