Any try The Beach Body products?
Posted 26 February 2009 - 01:26 PM
We are planning our wedding (finally *sigh*) and we're looking at June 2009 and I need to lose weight. I'm a total yo-yo gal and I really want to do this ... but I'm a junk food junkie.
The only thing I've ever tried that worked great for me was Isagenix cleanse products - but they are pretty expensive and as soon as I go off their system I gain every single pound back.
I'm 5'9" (large frame by the charts) - last week I weighed 181 ... now I'm at 177 just from drinking lost of water and trying to cut portions. I usually have an atkins shake for breakfast ... and from there on it's just whatever.
I really want to look fabulous for my wedding! You'd think that's all the motivation I need but yesterday I found myself stressed out and I ate some cookies and whatever I wanted *sigh*
I just ordered some products from the Beach Body because a lady I know sells them and I hope it helps me. I'll do their cleanse and then use their protein shakes ... and I need to eat good foods too.
I've started the Slim in 6 video before and I did great (lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks) but I tried it yesterday and due to a back injury I couldn't finish the video.
Anyone ... help?! Support?!
I really want to weigh 158 by my wedding ... so 19 more pounds ... in 16 weeks ... Thanks for any help and/or encouragement ... *huGs* Suzanne
And if you know anything about the Beach Body stuff please share ...

There's a thread on TJ somewhere on here, just search it.
There's also a massive thread on P90X. It's way more hard core, but if you are looking for fast results and can really stick to it, it does wonders. My hubby is doing it now (I would but my back can't take it), and he's getting super ripped.

After seeing her results first handâ€¦ I purchased the P90X, but havenâ€™t been able to use it because Iâ€™m not in good enough shape yet. But I will!
The P90X is definitely hardcore, so if you have back problems you should probably not try them. Good luck!!

P90X. She swears by it! I haven't jumped on that bandwagon - I'm a Jillian Michaels fan, myself

The only thing I can say is that you really do need to give yourself a LOT of time to let your back completely heal before you workout hard again. I threw out my back about three weeks ago, and it took a few days before I could even move, and about 2.5 until I felt I could go back to regular workouts. In the meantime, I got in my exercise by just walking, increasing both the duration and intensityas my back started to feel better. To burn the same number of calories, you do have to walk for a much longer time than more intense workouts (I was walking for at least an hour per session), but for me, it's a nice, gentle exercise that will let me stay active while I recovered. I'd say - just take it easy and let your back fully heal before getting back into it! Don't do any intense exercise until you truly feel no discomfort when moving around - stick to walking and gentle stretching. Otherwise you will just stay in this cycle of a hurt back that never heals.
Another trick I use is to take ibuprofen (which calms inflammation) *before* working out as well as when the pain flared up. Athletes use this trick as a preventative measure, and it's also helped me.
