Two summers ago I did my own makeshift version of P90X...well, really it wasn't P90X, I borrowed the dvd from a friend and I did the cardio 6x a week and 4 days a week I'd do strength training on top of that rotating the P90X shoulders and arms workout or my 8min core series buns and thigh workouts. I'm not sure how it happened but I lost probably 6-8lbs from doing that. I maintained my 141lb. figure until I got my wisdom teeth out, and then I went back to school, worked a lot, made excuses, and here I am back up between 148-150lbs.
I have decided recently to try P90X in its entirety and see what will happen. I want to do the lean routine but substitute the plyo for the cardiox after a couple weeks because I know I can get through the cardio fairly easily even while moderately (in my opinion) out of shape, and I want more of a challenge.
I haven't set an exact day of starting the program and I realize now that I am just procrastinating, but I will begin this weekend and continue to blog about my experiences and results.
I joined this website today to help me track my results, and also get support from others. So, if anyone out there reads this and is able to offer any advice or wise words they will all be greatly appreciated!!

    I've never done the P90X but I've heard such great things about it. Good luck on your workouts. Hey, you lost the weight before, you'll do it again. Keep us posted!!

    This P90X thing keeps popping up on different blogs I read. Could you fill me in a bit on what it's about? Also, not to sound like a freak or anything, but I'd like to give a shout-out to the whole low-carb and/or clean eating thing. I'm in maintenance mode, but when I cut grains and starchy veggies out of my diet, I lost weight that I didn't know I had to lose! Basically, aim for whole, natural foods (veggies, fruit, meats, nuts, etc.) and just fill up on that instead of starchy food. There's a team called Clean Eating on SP that I would totally recommend to help you with the diet aspect. They're not as low-carb as I am, but it's about things like brown rice and quinoa and other whole foods, and I can't really argue with that. I'm a college student, too, so it can be pretty hard, but I feel really good and feel totally in control of my weight now. Sometimes it's not so much about how much you eat as it is about what you eat. I hope that helps, and welcome to SP! emoticon

    I joined this site for the same reason!! I am only trying to maintain a good weight not lose a ton!! I would always make up excuses why I couldn't work out but now with others involved I feel I have a duty to follow through. It is nice to have a place we can go to talk to others, and if we have a day where we feel like we don't feel up to exercising we have plenty of support to help us get up and get motivated!! I am so excited for this site, and although this is only my 3rd day on here, it is helping me get up and do things and choose better foods!
    Good luck!
