Today I hula-hooped for the first time!

This is something I've tried to do periodically since I was a kid, and never succeeded at.

Two possible theories as to why I succeeded this time when I had previously failed. One is that this was a larger and heavier hula-hoop than a standard one, which nosrednayduj says makes it easier. Ths other is that I'm more coordinated with the relevant muscles because of using them in Latin dancing. Or it could be a combination of these two. In any case, despite the completely uselessness of this skill, finally being able to do it makes me quite happy.

Unless there is video it didn't actually happen.

I can do the hula-hoop on a wii :-). Stays up way better than an actual hoop.

Another friend who tried hooping yesterday says he can do it on a wii, but was fairly incompetent with this one. I wonder if I could do it on a wii -- I'm pretty good in real life.

I promise, he did it!

The really big hoops do make it easier, but having trained muscles is a good thing. Are you planning to learn tricks, or is having done it once good enough for you?

Congratulations! I haven't used a hula hoop in years, but it was always so much fun.

You're a better man than I, then (probably in a number of ways). ;)
