    Thanks JCrosby!!!
    I'll feel like a million bucks once I hit my goal :)

    AshleyMichelle - I did the P90X classic mainly because my fitness level when I began was so low ie I had pretty much no muscle base...one thing I learned (and it may be obvious) was that only doing cardio will not help you shed the fat, you really need to change the composition of your body and build a muscle base so when you do cardio, you are able to burn more calories! yay!

    In terms of eating lots of fruits and vegetables...if you look at the P90X portion approach in the Fat Shredder eating plan, it suggests only having 1 fruit portion a day...I was really surprised about this too! fruits are great but do have a lot of sugar in them...

    anyway good luck, it's great you are seeing results!!!!

      lijessicam let me clarify, eating lots of fruits for me equals like one serving, I am the strangest person ever but I can't eat lots of fruits! But yes I am going to try and do the food plan they have suggested! I can't wait to see how I look after it all hell after 30 days :)

        oh! I love fruits and could eat apples, oranges and grapes all day long :) sorry for assuming!

        you should take pictures and take measurements! we did because I was really hard on myself not thinking I looked any different...the pics really help you to stay on track and also provide motivation to keep on going :)

          OMG! I can't believe ACTUAL people have tried this program! I've always wondered if anyone had tried this. I try working our and eating healthy but I'm Mexican and we have very unhealthy foods but soooo good! hahah I need to really stick to this. I'm actually going to search ebay and craigslists to find it now!

            we bought this last year, I think I did it for about 4 weeks, and definitely noticed a difference, Steve did it for 2 months and lost a lot of weight and got into really good shape. But then he stopped, and now he needs to do it again (don't tell him I said that, lol!)

            The hardest part for me was that I hated the yoga and you're supposed to do all the workouts, etc... And I also felt like their was a TON of pushups, which I know I would have gotten better at, had I stuck with it longer.

            I actually should start doing it again as a morning workout and then going to the gym at night.

            maybe I'll start in the morning.

              I just started eating fruits! I am such an odd one! I can eat some cucumbers and celery and peppers all day though! I took my before pics and could not look at them, I just looked at one today and talk about motivation!!! I am so excited about this program I encourage everyone to do it. I am coming up on finishing up my first week and I have already lost 5 pounds! Woot I love it!

                  I just heard of these DVD's yesterday. I saw some guy at my company gym working out and he was using the P90x DVD. He told me that he is on his second month and has lost 12lbs. He said that there are 3 intense workouts during the week and the other workouts aren't so bad. He seemed to be sweating up a storm.

                    I am starting on my 3rd week now! I think I will agree with the guy at the gym, at first they seemed really hard but I still could do them. Now its like only a few that I think are super hard. I think thats just because you start to really get into it and enjoy it and become better. I LOVE this so much and I have lost 7 pounds and feel so much better!

                      WOW!!!! great work AshleyMichelle! great attitude! you're approaching your rest week, I bet you're relieved you're right! after a while, some of the workouts grow on you :) my favourites are core synergistics, kenpo and shoulders and arms...my least favourite are probably plyometrics and legs and back....they just KILL my legs to the point that I can't even wear my heels to walk!

                      I haven't been on track as I'd like in this second round of P90X but I figure I still have time since my wedding is in April 2010...those last 10lbs WILL go!!!
