        I just started this Sunday....I almost died! Made me feel so out of shape, but I was a good sore the next day. I even got my FI to do it with me!

        Haha that definitely makes it more fun! I am always trying to get mine to do yoga with me and he claims he doesn't get a good workout. He must be doing something wrong, cause it is hard for me!

          I do Hot Yoga, I got my FI to come with me for a week. I think it was a way better workout than he was expecting!

              Although its a bit more pricey- Insanity is the business! I lost 60 pounds. The program takes 60 days to complete and you can lose upwards of 20 pounds in those 60 days. I started it a few months before I got engaged because at the time I also had braces and I wanted to transform myself completely. The braces came off and so did the weight! My fiancĀ© and I did it together and he actually turned into a huge healthnut after. It's 6 days a week- 45 minutes a day for 30 days then an hour for the next 30. It's high impact- I def cried the first day and I hated it but I stuck it out. I went from a size 14 to a size 2. I purchased my dress when I was sort of in between a 4 and a 2 and I think it's a bit snug because unlike most people who lose weight due to stress, I am a stress eater. And I have been stress eating :( but I'm 4 months until our wedding and if I lost 20 pounds in 60 days I can less in 120. And if I'm being honest about weight loss- I gave up alcohol while I did insanity and I loooove wine so that was a toughie. I also cut out white- white pasta, rice, bread, & replaced it with brown pasta, lean proteins and veggies. I also eat 5 meals but controlled portions. And yes- I occasionally cheat ;)
              Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

              Wow that is awesome. Go you! I started a boot camp on the beach that's 3 days a week. It's tough and I can definitely feel/see results but something tells me Insanity would be even crazier!
