Taking that first step is the hardest. And now it's over! You did it! If you haven't already, please join us on the What workout did you do today? Thread. I think I"m the ONLY one not doing the OMNI program. But even at my thinest 119 lbs, I had "hips" so I went HIPCENTRIC.
I lost count of how many times I did days 1-10. I kept thinking that if I missed a day, i needed to start over. But once I let go of that "perfection" mentality, and realized that all that mattered was that I did MY best, I finally started to make progress.
Now, if I miss a day, due to illness, injury, life, whatever I just pick up where I left off. This is the first time, I've made it to day 65 and it feels fantastic. I get compliments on my arms and my butt can definitely pass the pencil test! It couldn't do that even when I WAS 119 pounds, and I'm almost 5' 11.
Tracy makes me cry or just feel like crying every ten days, but it's definitely worth it to push on!

I'm new to this SparkTeam, but not new to SparkPeople. Unfortunately, I lost my motivation and dropped off of SparkPeople for quite some time. I purchased the Meta Omni program about a year ago and have attempted to get started with it at least a dozen times. I haven't been able to keep at it any more than 3 days in a row mainly because I've been coming up with many excuses not to work the program. So this time, I'm building up the courage to post on this forum in hopes that it helps to keep me honest and accountable.
Thank you RYDERB for posting a welcome message on my SparkPage. You already helped me to kick it in gear tonight and do my D1L1 workout despite the obstacles at home. I'm looking forward to reading more about people's experiences with the program on this forum!
My goal at present is to start small and aim to just complete the first 6 days of the program before taking a rest day. I figure if I can prove to myself that I can do 6 days in a row (and hopefully see some initial results) that it will give me the motivation I need to keep going.
