I'm glad this was posted - thank you! I'm in 1st week of Insanity and have only lost .5 lb. I've been consistently losing 1 - 3 lb per week since last Sept unless I went off my eating plan. This is an interesting idea about the body holding onto water. I'm also wondering if I'm eating enough calories. I'm staying within the 1300 - 1500 cal range...

The first time I did Insanity I did it with a group of people. Almost everyone lost the most weight the second month. Also, the less weight you have to lose, the slower the first month for the weight to come off. However, even if you don't you see a lot of changes on the scale the second month, you will see changes in the way your clothes fit by the end.

Let's just keep at it! Check out that article I posted... It makes sense. I gained 2.5 pounds and am now just starting to trend down (by only 0.3 but it's down!!!). I am now just curious about what happens going foward!
I'm up... I'm excersising... I think that's a win :)
I'm so glad you posted this because I am having the EXACT same problem! Now granted I want to lose around 100 lbs but I am really struggling to stay positive because I expected to see some results by now. I'm interested to see if anyone else had this problem. I'm also in week 3.
I'm new to the team! My husband and I are doing Insanity... we're in week 3 right now. We both have about 30 pounds to lose. Here's the thing... I wasn't expecting the weight to drop off right away, but I've lost 3/10 of a pound in almost 3 weeks. I'm sticking to the meal plan and tracking my food here. I log 500 calories per workout except for the cardio recovery workout. I do wear a heart rate monitor and actually track 600+ usually... but it is not the most accurate of monitors, so I just log 500 to be safe. I ganed a little over 2 pounds in the first 2 weeks... and was really getting discouraged. I found an article that may explain it... something about your body protecting it's joints when starting an intense program like Insanity or P90X and that it should start coming off in week 4... so I'm plugging away! I really like the program so far but really LOVE that my husband is doing it too. He's changed so much already.. physical changes AND his mood and energy level! It's awesome. I'm going to stick with it through to the end, but I'm hoping this weight will start coming off! I did take day 1 measurements, but haven't measured since... I think at day 30 we will measure. Would love to know everyone's thoughts on the program and the weight loss. PS... I LOVE Shaun T :)
