I started Metamorphosis Abcentric in August - I'm on L3D4 right now - so I guess I'm nearly a month in - I lost 6 pounds and 4 inches in the first week! 3 of the inches were in my waist!
Pretty motivating!

I am on Sequence 3 Day 29 of the Tracey Anderson Method 30 Day Plan. I have the book and the DVD that comes with it. It is a good place to start as I did. I can see start to see some results. When I reach the 30th day, I will go back to Sequence 1 Day 31 and on and on every 10 days you change to the next Sequence. I am a lot better at the movements than I was at the beginning! I want to get the Metamorphosis System for Christmas, so the 30 Day Method is preparing me well.

I'm so glad she's not going to be talky talky in this. Yeah, Denise/Leslie get on my last nerve. I do their vidoes, but that's why I hit mute & put on my own music! :)
True, she could smile a bit more, but that's not a concern to me. Sometimes when those instructors are smiling the whole way through, to me, it comes across as 'fake'. So I like that Tracy is very subdued and quiet & only talks a little bit. Next to her different types of exercises, I think that's also one of my favorite things about her.

Latest update on the tracking is that the expected delivery date is Tuesday. Geez, $15 for shipping and it's slow as syrup.

Have a good weekend. Anxiously awaiting my package. argh! haha

I should tell you then you will love this series then because you can have the option of keeping off her talking instructions and just have the music.
I can't stand the other programs where they are too perky or smile and act too giggy. I agree it's a turn off for me when i'm trying to workout.
You wouldn't catch me doing Denis Austin or Leslie. I have done Leslie Sansone in the winters when I couldn't get out she's a postive lady dont' get me wrong but that's something only one can take once inawhile, lol. I rather be on my treadmill or outside or getting yelled at by my coach coaching me on the ice.
You will really like it.
I was commenting on the no smile thing because she should smile once inawhile lightly not cheesy. LOL At least look like she is enjoying it right? But it's ok i'm only in for it for results.
What I did was just watch it for the first time with her telling me the instructions as she goes along then the next time use only music.
Good luck have a great day

You know, I watched all of her mat video, and I do notice that she doesn't smile much or talk much. Lots of people complain about no instructions from her, etc, . But actually I LOVE that she doesn't talk. Cuz when you are watching these tapes over & over again, you're gonna get sick & tired of hearing them talk, so I love that she doesn't talk much. So I'm hoping the omni is the same way where she's more quiet & just exercising. Actually the ones who are too perky irritate me to no end & I end up muting them. Like Denise Austin and Leslie sansone. They are good, but SHUT UP! haha... So I just mute those. I'm glad tracy is quiet & not sickening perky. I hate that. So far, my omni is still in Florida... eating my smart ones for lunch. not bad. I prefer lean cuisines. haha... Will post for sure again when i get omni... hee hee!!!

Good Morning. Your welcome. I figured if I could do it you can too. I was up there in weight and I remember those days you think it will never happen but you have it in you , it will come. I just wouldn't want you to give up hope and fight the good fight. My upper body was the biggest part of me. Growing up I have always been active so my legs stayed ok I gained all my weight for some reason from the hips up.
Her program looks good.
For some reason though I can't figure out why she never smiles in her videos, lol. Guess she is serious and wants to be different from everyone else.
I woke up and my butt is still sore, lol.
Oh well. Can't give up. No pain no gain on weight loss I guess.
Have a good day stick with it we can do this.
Great job on your walks too!!

Wow, you are just a burst of positive energy! I saw her on you tube too, and I saw her treadmill routine with Molly Sims. I might stick my lap top in front of my treadmill at home & try that workout. I saw her arm videos on you tube also. I will probably do some of those you tube videos too. My main form of exercise is walking (because I'm about 200 lbs, can't keep up in aerobics right now), and I never hold the arm rails, I always put my full body into it. I know it helps a little on the arms, but I know I need those main arm exercises to shrink them. Can't wait to get omni, I keep watching the tracking site. Trying to psyche myself out and prepare cuz I know it's gonna be painful. But I gotta get on track & get this weight off. I'm miserable, and self concious. Sick of it! Thanks for your upbeat attitude, I definitely need it!

Oh you will ! Stay strong and don't give up ever. Keep up the postive thoughts and you will trim your arms down it' takes a while it's hard work trust me I know I use to be 197 and i'm only 5 feet. My arms were huge and I still have bat wings it's taking me a long time but I keep going I keep lifting weights 3 times a week I never stop because I see it coming along it reminds me my hard work is paying off. I"m up to 8 lbs now here at home and heavier at the gym.
I will be honest though this year has changed my life with losing the harder fat on me was the walking fast and running / jogging on the treadmill or even outside. It really trims you. I make sure I don't hang on to the treadmill anymore and swing my arms with power and now it's working so if anything I hope this helps.

Her workouts will help us I know it. We have to be postive and make sure we do what she says. Keep up the arm workouts your doing now because you said it burns and that is awesome . Means it's working! I know I did it yesterday and it burned bad but I smiled . I need it and want it.
I've tried some of her short workouts on Youtube and that's how I found out about her . They made my arms feel it so I figured why not you know. Go for it and see.
Good luck with your day 1 when you get it I know you will like it.

I'm hoping to have the omni by Friday.
I do have her MAT video, I just ordered that & got that a few days ago. I got that mainly for the ARM section. I have the biggest arms in the world & godawful bat wings. I'm hoping those different arm exercises will help with that. I'm desperate at this point. I seem to be stuck at around 200, I'll lose & then get back to that # again. I know if I just stick with it I can get the weight off, but it's just hard sometimes. But tracy's exercises look so different than anything I've ever done. So I'm hoping the focus on the SMALLER muscles might actually help me. i don't want to bulk up, i have enough of that in fat, I need to lean out. I know her workouts will be tough. I did a few minutes of that arm section & about died. But I know I need that to target my arms, so I'll try not to complain. Got an email that omni has been shipped to me, so hopefully by Friday. ! can't wait....gotta get this blasted weight off..I'm sick of it. been fat for entirely too long.

I know me too. I have the Omni and bought the one for the whole body. Let me tell you she doesn't disappoint. Be prepared to work hard. At first it looks easy with the arms but wait.. then you get on the floor and do core workouts for the whole body. I'm not joking it gets you burning and sweating just doing them. The Ab workouts too are great she really targets the small areas. She doesn't want you to lift more then 3 lbs weights aswell. So i was hoping this method really will lean us all out and if anyone here was ahead of us and saw results that would be good to know to keep up the smiling while i'm doing it.
It does get challenging too I took a look ahead of the other ones after day 10 and it gets intense so it must work. I'm excited to try out something new.
I have 25 lbs to go I lost over 40 with SP but i can never lean out for some reason even with eating clean so we'll see how this goes.
And you will be sore ! LOL just to warn you. Looks like nothing while your doing it then the next day your like oh my god wow! Nice I like a good sore makes it worth it.

I just ordered the OMNI, waiting for it, any day now. I too, am hoping she can help lean me out. I am huge everywhere. I have lost about 40 lbs but I need to lose about 50-60 more. I'm very intrigued by her exercises and am hoping they can trim me down to help me lose inches.

Has anyone here start to see results from the Metamorphosis workouts using the dvds? I'm new to her dvd's just started the phase 1 yesterday. Was wondering if anyone has had good results. I have been doing strength training for a few years now and have really toned up nicely but my muscles are too big I would like to trim down and start to see fat in areas melt away , lol. I would love to have leaner arms instead of bigger muscles and she uses 3 lb weights this is all new to me and wanted to know if it's worked with anyone here.

Thank you
Michaele
