Just finished week 1 and I've lost an inch from my hips! I sew, so I'm pretty handy with the measuring tape and can be certain that it wasn't a mismeasurement. My scale broke (my son wanted to see how fast it would go down the stairs... apparently really fast! lol) so I won't know if I've lost anything till I can replace it. But definitely seeing an improvement on my part! I've been following the SparkPeople diet, though; my budget doesn't allow for the P90X meal plan, and at least I'm eating healthy food!
I'm starting my 4th week. I didn't loose any weight, my pants are still snug, and I look the same in the mirror; however, I feel like I've been getting stronger, feel more motivated during the day, and sleep better at night. (my diet needs work)
I'm going to keep on keeping on. Hopefully soon I'll be less flabby!!
I'm 5'10 female, started at about 170, lost about 5-6 pounds in the first 3 weeks, then got hit HARD by the flu which took me out of working out for like 4 days (week 4, recovery) and kept me from eating practically all week.
I've just started week 5, and I'm still about 5-7 pounds lighter than when I started (although I bet Superbowl weekend didn't help). I've noticed a little change in the way I look, but friends have noticed it more than me. I would have liked to see bigger numbers dropped on the scale, but I know there have been days where I let the diet slack more than I should have.
Hopefully I can stay healthy for the duration of the program, and avoid anymore tempting weekends!
Im in week one and Im trying to figure out my calories as well. the guide says I should be eating 2500 calories, but I usually eat around 1800 in my previous lifting routine. so Im trying to find a middle ground and make sure my calories are healthy calories
My husband and I are on Day 4. He is about 40 pounds overweight and has never worked out much. I know he will see big results before me. I am already in pretty good shape though I've never done p90x. I've read that most women can't see results in the mirror for up to 60 days.
The less you have to lose it will be even slower. So we all need to be patient.
I think my main thing is- how do I know how much to increase the calories by?! I definitely feel like if I need an adjustment it would have to be to increase calories rather than decrease, but I'm just afraid I won't know what the heck I'm doing.
My biggest change happened in the last 30 days. When I got stuck at certain weight I would INCREASE my calories and the weight started to come off again. Don't be afraid to eat to fuel your body. I was able to lose 30 lbs in 90 days and 20lbs of those came off in the last month.
I feel the same exact way. You are not alone. I'm on Day 26 and while my clothes feel slightly different (which is some improvement) I have not lost a single pound. In fact, I've gained 2 pounds. I would be interested to see what other people's results were. Good luck and hang in there!!!!
Hello fellow P90Xers! I'm just wondering how long it took you to lose weight/see results doing P90X?
I'm into week four now, and haven't seen what I was hoping to see. I'm just trying to figure out if my calories might be off or if I need to just wait a couple more weeks? (I am eating approx 1700 *healthy* calories a day, am 5'9" female.)
