    Same! At first I didn't even know when I was supposed to hit the arrows, and I'd thump my foot down super hard in order to "catch" the note. I got D's even on beginner mode, and was exhausted afterwards. It took me a lot of practice to get to extreme/heavy, mostly by stubbornly beating my grade on the same song over and over. I was and still am a terrible dancer in every other way, and will never be caught dead on a dance floor.

    DDR is great for weight loss in combination with pre-DDR weight lifting/crunches and a healthier diet. Diet wise, I had more protein, reduced carbs, reduced junk food, and stopped drinking anything with sugar in it at all (no juice either). I did it about 5x/week for 1 hr at first, but as I got better I could exercise for shorter periods, 15 mins or so, since I was doing super fast songs.

    I'm honestly a super lazy person by nature, and was solely motivated by being a normal weight on my wedding day.

    I'd say, it took me months to get Bs on standard. Go for it, you'll feel great

    Haven't posted a new photo in a while, so here's a 2year old photo of me.


    To those trying to lose weight, I commend you, I'm trying as well, because I got tired of the strain caused by my extra weight, started actually doing more exercise than just walking, cut back on portions, and dropped 25 pounds from my max (310lbs) in a month, then slowed down some, but still working on it because i want to drop a bit below 250.

    I'm honestly a little jealous of people who want/need to lose weight. I'm the other way around, I need to gain it, as much as I'd rather stay at 120 pounds for the rest of my life, lol.

    I literally laughed remembering how when people would get on my pad they would "stomp" the arrows. There was always a delayed reaction as the arrow would be nearing the target, and then the inevitable swift stomp. Yeah I got to doing heavy 7s, but I didn't have the stamina for anything higher since I was still pretty heavy. This actually proves that you can do DDR at any weight (well within reason. I'm sure a 400 pound person is going to find it very difficult). In terms of real dance floors, it's just about letting go. I guarantee you'd have fun if you just do it. Once you break past the "everyone is watching me" barrier, it can be a LOT of fun

    Yup, I ate a ton of protein as well. In fact, I still eat a ton of protein. I developed some food allergies that I didn't have at the time, so meat is more or less all I can eat now anyways. I haaaate working my abs. I really do. Doesn't mean I don't do it, but it's by far my least favorite. I'm not really qualified to comment on the best way to do fitness as I mostly just brute forced mine without any real help or knowledge. I'd be way bigger if I had a personal trainer though I may start working out with my Pops (he lives close by), as he has one . Eating right is a big deal though, you can't just work out and hope it comes off. My Dad works out like a dog but also eats like a pig, so he's still really overweight. Underneath all that fat though he's pretty damn strong.

    Meeee toooooooo >< I was motivated by something less positive than a wedding, but hey, it got me there :P

    He's 3, but if you ask him he'll tell you he's 2! He's got the cutest curls, he's going to be a lady killer when he's older that's for sure!

    I guessed somewhere around that age! My niece is 4 and has way less hair than him. She's still a cutie pie though.
