When I came across this story it made me so happy. When it comes to weight loss, the struggle is real. To be honest, the gym is not my favorite place, we have a love/hate relationship. But this chica found a way to lose weight and have fun doing something we all did as kids....hula hoop!

16 year old Cezely Torres has lost weight eating right and by doing 'Hula Fit' in Odessa 3 nights a week. Torres says the hardest part was getting motivated to do it but she enjoys the exercise class which utilizes weighted hula hoops for different exercises. When she tells people, who have noticed her weight loss, Cezely claims they are taken back when she tells them she is 'hula hooping' which she says 'helps a lot!'

Hula Fit is open to the public and it's free. It is located at 1621 East 8th Street in Odessa every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
