I'm feeling discouraged :-(.

 

Tonight will complete my 4th week in P90x. I still weigh the same and don't feel like there is any noticeable change in my appearance (although I feel stronger).

Of course FI's body is changing and I'm jealous lol. I have been eating good food and definitely less..

 

When did everyone else start seeing changes?

I want to start with saying that everyone is different and everyone's bodies react differently to working... the same thing doesn't work for everyone. Men always seem to react better to working out and they have noticble changes quickly.

It took me a few weeks to see a change, I also put on weight while doing it due to muscle.

Are you following the diet per P90X AND the calorie counts? I was and things were fine but I'm 3 weeks away from my wedding and wanted to slim more than tone and took out 200 cals from my diet and lost 3lbs in the last 2 weeks.

Don't get discouraged, if you are getting stronger that's definitely something right there!

Lisa - 4 weeks is awesome! Congrats on what you've done thus far! Don't be discouraged...just keep it up and you will see results in no time cheesy.gif If I remember what I read in the booklet correctly, the first phase (Weeks 1-4) is all about getting your body used to the workout and getting through them.

 

I'm in the middle of Week 3 now. I haven't lost any weight but I'm definitely feeling stronger and a bit firmer. I've been increasing my weights and reps this week.

I REALLY want to start P90x. I have 4 months until my wedding and want to slim down and tone up. I just can't bring myself to pay the $120+ it sells for online. Does anyone have suggestions on where to find it cheaper?

Good morning ladies! Happy hump day :o) I started another round of P90X last night and it felt great. We did a month of Insanity and I was doubting those results, but turns out it was working! I thought I was going to die from not doing P90 for about 4 months, but I totally kept up with my last recorded weights and reps!

 

Lisa ~ Congrats on making it 4 weeks on P90! Are you tracking inches as well as weight? I find that my weight may not change, but inches (and clothes fitting better) is a great way to "see" results. Keep up the hard work!

 

kwaits ~ Check out craigslist for used copies. We got P90 and Insanity from people there and both were still in original packaging. And the price is totally worth it because the results are so good. Hope you can find something that works for you!

Autumn - That's amazing! Those are good results but I felt the same way, I didn't feel or see much change until I did P90X and realized my muscles had strength and much better endurance.

I found a friend that has a copy that she never uses, so she is going to let me borrow it. Can't wait to start. I think I'll take my before picture this weekend using the bikini I plan to wear to the wedding and then start the workout on monday. I have a little under 4 months until the wedding so hopefully it will work out perfectly....as long as I stick with it :-)

It is soooo nice to hear success stories! Keeps me motivated!

 

I have to admit though, Tony Horton sure starts getting annoying after a while. I'm starting to cringe every time we do the stirrers and he talks about soup! stupid.gif

Oh Ginalyn, Tony never gets any better. But it's fun to make fun of him while you are working out! Besides don't you want some German potato soup?!?! ;-p

    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.
