I just finished my 10 week program at Farrells and have had amazing results. I am so glad I stuck with the program. The first 2 weeks were very hard on me.I figured it was only 10 weeks so I made sure I just showed up to class and kept moving...even if it was barely :) I hope you enjoyed the program as much as I did! Keep moving mama you can do it!

Did they guarantee you anything when you signed up for this? Did they require a doctor's signed statement that you were ready for this? Usually any kind of "extreme" plan that a person pays money for, they check you out closely before they take you, and try to sell you a different plan, there are ones for different stages of a person's lifestyle. Can you get your money back if you feel like quitting, was there a contract?

Doing something labeled as "extreme" when you are just getting back into working out seems like a very bad plan and a good way to injure yourself. Of course you are frustrated--it takes time to build muscle and endurance.
Not weighing yourself for such a long period...well, that would make me VERY nervous.
I wish you luck, but this doesn't seem like a great approach.

One workout at a time....Make sure to warm up and cool down!

Extreme anything does not a lifestyle change make.
So, I have enrolled in Farrell's Extreme BodyShaping [10 week challenge]. I am almost 42 years old, am very overweight and a smoker. My first day was Saturday, September 28th. Today absolutely KILLED me. I couldn't do full sets on ANYTHING! I was so frustrated. It's hard to look in the mirror after working so hard for a week and not see anything change.
Kickboxing 3x a week and strength training 3x a week.
I know, I know - I didn't get to 250 lbs overnight .... But does anyone know what I mean? Grrr. Very frustrated - sore - happy I'm committed but want to see the changes faster!!!!!
