    LOL.. I tried the Ty-bo (question spelling) and it was great, but my problem is I get bored doing the same thing day end and day out. So I had to change it up.

    Sarah, its a VERY good thing that your sore from the workout, that means it's working, however the bad part is that you may have "overworked" your muscles and it will take longer to repair them. I'd say do the work out everyother day to start.. Maybe even twice a week for the first couple of weeks and build yourself up. You don't want to be too sore that you don't want to work out the next day. Also remember girls that your muscles need time to relax so never work the same body part two days in a row.

    Ok that's all I have to add for now.. Good luck everyone.

      Ann & Sarah, my mom had that tape when I used to live at home and I used to do all the time and I lOVED it! Oh and I hear you on the sore thing, I remember when I used to do her tapes that I could barely sit on the toilet, thats how bad my butt hurt, and every other muscle in my body!! Its funny that you brought this up because I was just thinking of asking my mom if she still had it so I could steal it. I think they're may even be two videos, I think my mom had the second one, not sure, I'll have to check. I really like to feel something after a workout so I know its doing something.

        I say we all try to do this (or something similar) and report back a few times a week! Then we'll at least feel the pressure to be able to say "I did my workout!"

          Oh, I definitely agree that I overworked myself- there is no way I will be able to workout like that more than twice a week. Tammy (or anyone else), what do you think is better for me to do: kick my butt like I did the other day and do it 2-3 times a week, or do the workout half-a$$ed every day?

          Yeah- you'll have to get it and try it again- let me know what you think!

          Ann- I think that's a great idea, we can report to eachother and we each can be sympathetic:)

            Sarah I without question think you should do a workout that challenges your body, if you can only do it twice a week at first, thats fine, just keep building it up over time, the workout will get easier for you. This is my theory, if you work half @$$ on a workout your only cheating yourself and you'll end up quiting because you don't see the results you wanted to.

            I think the really good thing about those DVD's is that you have to try to keep up, when a person works out of their own its far to easy for then to say "man I'm tired, I can't do "x" amount more I'll just stop here". The reason I LOVED going to classes for kickboxing is because I was challanged to keep up with the rest of the class, so it didn't allow me to give up as easily.

            Sarah do the workout twice a week for 3 weeks, then 3 times a week for 3 weeks, and keep increasing it.

                You are all very motivated! Congrats Sarah on your body being so sore form a great work-out! I agree with Tammy that it's better to work out hard less often than half-a$$ed... not that I'm doing anythign these days but that's been my experience in the past.

                I am having such a sh*tty day today.

                Oh and Sarah - there weren't any "Scarlets" at the Monique Lhuiliier sample sale

                  I just read that in the other thread- what a bummer! I'm sad- but especially for you!
                  Hope the rest of the week is better...

                    Hey girls,
                    What's this? No posts since December 8th?!?!? Okay...I'm back to say that I'm pulling out my points calculator tomorrow and I'm back in. I have gained back at least half of the weight I've lost (maybe more?) and it's time to get back on track. Who's in with me?

                      I'm joining! I've done WW before and lost 15 lbs last summer. I used their online program which was fun and easy but I have cancelled it (I'm trying to save any way I can!). I still have my books and points tracker guide. So I'm In!
