|I ordered it on Amazon last week and it came in only 2 days. I did it Sunday and today, and I had to use the handicap bar in the restroom to lower myself to pee! My legs are KILLING! I can't wait to see the results after 30 days.|
It does get better after a few days... lol.

Carly I think it's totally worth it to get it - it's pretty cheap, and it's definitely effective depending on how much effort you put in. Jillian really does know what she's doing but I think it's up to you how much effort you put into each move and how often you do the workouts, etc...

Target had it on sale so I got in on Sunday. I did it today because I was already sore since my softball season started yesterday & it was my first game since last season.
Right now my thighs are throbbing. I could barely walk when I got up this morning from all the running around I did during softball, so I can imagine the pain that I'll be in tomorrow from Jillian.
I have 5lb weights but knew that they were going to be waaayyy to heavy from your reviews, so tomorrow I have to get 3lb weights. I can only imagine how sore my arms are gonna be once I add the weights.
Basically the cardio absolutely killed me. The jumping jacks & jumping rope & butt kicks were the worst for me!!! Everytime she got on the floor & got back up to do the cardio, I wanted to cry.
I can take the squats & abs & lunges, but the cardio had me dying. The worst thing was that I can't find my dvd remote so I couldn't pause it which I guess is a good thing since she clearly discourages breaks. I just kept looking at the clock wondering when the longgg 20 minutes would be up.
Anyway, after that I did my wii fit for another 30 minutes. I also bought Denise Austin's Ab's dvd & will add that to my regime.
While my goal is to lose a few pounds, my main focus is toning, getting rid of my tummy & improving my cardio, so I plan to stick with this & hope that it gets better.
I really liked how she kept changing the exercises & had you doing something different every 2 minutes. But one thing I know is that I truly can't imagine me moving on to level 2 anytime soon!
Thanks for all of your advice & reviews.
