Hi - obviously I"m new, since I'm posting on the "new" board :) I have been fighting the same 20 lbs for a while, and couldn't afford p90X and thought I've give this program a try. Power 90 was good, but bit boring after 60 days, and it's very push-up reliant, and so I can't do a lot of the exercises. I have a bad righ wrist and have been cautioned to not stress it with push ups, dips or the like - there goes Tony's workout :(
I'm happy so far with the 4 discs I've tried, and at the moment as I am trying to just get back into a regular workout schedule, am aiming for 5 days, and will be happy with 4 days a week. I got discouraged when I missed too many 6 day weeks after getting sick and gave up on Power 90, stupidly, pretty close to the end.
I am 35, 5'6", upset that I hit 210 in the last year, and though I am hovering between 191 and 198 depending on the day of the week, I really want to get to 165. I don't want to be ripped, super skinny, just healthy and have more energy. Through some serious WW, I hit 165 several years ago, and was happy there, feeling that anything lower for my frame would make me look sickly (bones were starting to be visible at my wide hips - I'm just made weird.
I'm not sure exactly what has made the weight harder to get off and keep off - I don't know if it's hitting my mid-30s, or medication issues tied to stress and just stopping working out - I keep a Spark calorie diary on my phone, and stay in the limit, but can only really lose weight at all if I drop my intake under 1200 calories, which just seems a bad idea... so I am trying a bootcamp again, even though it took over 35 days for anything noticeable (other than muscle soreness) to happen on P90 - I was happy with the results once I could measure them (tape measure AND scale/clothes). :P
Here's hoping that y'all can help keep me honest and from quitting at least until the 90 days is up.
