Hi. I seen your post in thread about Jillian Micheals. I just wanted to say, I have her 30 day Shred also, and when I was doing, (I kinda fell off the wagon) for the first time in my life I was able to do a full military push up. I played sports in school and could do anything but the "girl" ones. Stick with it, and you will see huge improvements. Myself, I will be starting it again this weekend. I already have the ice packs ready lol.
Hi Cynthia here. I am reading through the posts on the message boards and I see that you are feeling somewhat negative because you lost a lb in a week. Please know that you hard work is so worth it. I would encourage you if you have not already to measure yourself...you waist, thighs, neck, arms and chest and then remeasure every so often. My bet is that despite now losing a big number on the scale you have probably lost some inches. There are so many ways to measure success other than the scale. How do you feel physically and emotionally after one full week of staying on track. Before the weigh in I bet you felt GREAT!
Hang in there. Slow and steady wins the race! You CAN do this!
