I am staring this thread to help women of all ages that have struggled so hard to lose weight and have not had much success. Now that you have joined the BeachBody community, you will not only have the proper peer support to finally start reaching your goals but also have access to the right tools, programs, experience and nutrition to finally get the job done.

I am turning 45 on May 17th and after so many trials and tribulations, I am finally starting to shed some pounds. I have about 37 more to go to get those 6 pack abs so I am in it for the long haul!

The only reason I have turned this corner and have faith that I will meet my goal is because of these message boards and the high quality of workout programs and nutrition options only available here! This is the reason I joined up as a coach. I am part of a great workout group: Team Engage!

I can't wait to start helping others to meet their goals. I am so excited!

If you want to join this thread be ready for a ride of a lifetime and hold on 'cause we are going places!!

Don't fear though. All are welcome! This thread is meant for beginners and vets alike with experienced buddies to help out and answer all questions.

Join up and we will get you started with the right program for you or assist you in the program you have already picked. You will learn how to track your calories and nutrition. You not be forgotten and will be treated like the amazing person you are for choosing to get healthy and live happy!

All Aboard!!!!!

10/21/2011

I thought I would update this original post. I have completed P90X in June 11, I completed Insanity, though it took my much longer in month two due it being summer and I had many outdoor projects going on. I am right now in my 9th week of round two of P90X with a little Insanity mixed in. I dare think I might try The Asylum in December!!!!! I have P90X2 on pre order. I drink Shakeology every day!

I lost about 15 pounds of fat in my first round of P90X, about 10 through Insanity (mind you it was summer BBQ season) and down about 5 pounds into P90X round 2. A total of roughly 30 pounds of FAT with some muscle gain, maybe 3-4 pounds.
I have lost 2.5" from each thigh, almost an inch off my ankle, 6 inches from my belly button waist, 3.5 from the smallest part of my waist. Almost 5 inches from my hips.
Everything in my life is easier because of my strength and more importantly balance in my core.

The ladies I have met on this thread have been amazing and have completely helped motivate me on the days I have felt low.

I urge anyone who has read this far to join this thread and become part of the transformation.

Ladies UNITE!!

I'd love to be a part of a group like this. I've been the same weight since the 7th grade... no matter what I've done in the past; nothing has really worked... I'm looking forward to finally finding results. If only I could find the community to hold me to actually striving for them.

Welcome Vaann!

I see that you have posted a picture. That is great. I encourage you to take some day 1 photos and take your measurements. A lot of times folks don't feel like they have made progress if they have no concrete way to measure it besides the scale. We hate the scales!

Also, do you have a program that you are starting? Have you already started it? Have you read through the nutrition guide that came with it. They are all a bit different but can be really simplified. I would also encourage you to join the workout group Team Engage. Take some time to explore the WOWY gym and start recording your workouts as well. These tasks improve your chances of completing your program.

WOOHOO!

Welcome! hmmm I think we are going to need a name for you emoticon

Looks like you have been a part of team beachbody for a while but not so active on the boards. Since you reached out to us here, I am hopeful that you can find the motivation you are looking for.
Can you tell us a little bit of your story? What are your goals, which programs you are doing?
I am a big fan of the personal story, it motivates me so much!

Thats just the thing. I can't do ANYTHING on this website. I can't even add a photo. I wrote a message to customer service because it's extremely frustrating. My name is Lindsay by the way. lol. I want to add workouts to my calendar but it's like the screen freezes when it gets to that page. Not sure what else to do on this one. But I'd be happy to join your team! emoticon

That is terrible! What browser are you using? Explorer, Firefox, safari? Do you have the same trouble on different computers? You may have some viruses on your computer too. I can help with that through email.

I am JoAnn BTW!

I use windows 7 and I also use firefox. The same thing happened on my other computer so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have checked for viruses and my computer says I have none. Who knows. I don't want to quit my membership but I'm just not happy with this website. Any suggestions?

I think I would try logging on to the site on a different computer, lets say you go to Best Buy and try on one of theirs. (Remember to log out afterwards)
Also while posting pictures, the file should be pretty small. You may have to re-size the file on your computer before trying to upload them. Right click on the photo you want and choose "open with paint" Once in the paint program, choose "re-size photo". I usually re-size by 50%. Then hit save. You should have better luck uploading then.

If you are able to log on to WOWY from a different computer, then I would take yours to maybe Staples to have them "clean it up". Staples does not charge a lot for this but they will try to sell you a bunch of software. Don't buy any because you can download better free stuff.

Thanks for the quick response emoticon

My mom actually bought the TurboFire program and left the discs at my house. I randomly started it on the 10th. The following day I started here; logging workouts and perusing message boards, posting pictures, logging measurements. Like I said; my mom left the discs at my house; and nothing else. So I have not had a chance to look over the meal plans or anything. I am actually at her house right now, and plan to take them with me. emoticon Otherwise; I don't eat junk or anything, I don't overeat, and I usually choose healthy choices. I've become very good at maintaining my weight.

Otherwise; I look forward to the interaction here. emoticon

Also: welcome Lindsey.

I have peeked at turbofire and it looks very similar to Insanity. Can't wait to hear all your feed back.
I am still pondering my next program after P90X which will be done in less than 30 days!

Wow, you before and after pics really show a difference! Insanity is a good choice now that you have gained some upper body strength from Power 90. And BTW congrats on being a Power 90 grad!
How do you like Insanity so far?

ALL:

I am using MyFitnessPal to record my daily calories. I also have used DailyBurn with good success. I highly recommend signing up for one and start tracking. I thought I was eating all the right foods but I was not paying enough attention to my protein/carb/fat ratios. I was way more off than I thought! Take some time and really read the nutrition guide for your program. For P90X, the first month was 50% protein, 30% carb and 20% fat. That really did make the difference for me. I am now eating 45% protein, 35% carb and 20% fat. This gives me enough energy for the workouts.
My user name for MyFitnessPal is Jnanof, feel free to add me as a friend.

Thanks! finishing Power90 was a huge deal for me! I started and stopped it several times before this last time of starting it and finishing. and I really really like insanity! Its tough but so worth it! there is still quite a bit I have trouble doing but I do try every single move and do as much as i can.

I was using my fitness pal in the past but then my husband got me a bodymeida armband and that is where i track all my calories and such. and it really does help to actually see what you are eating.

Count me in. I finished my first round of P90X in April and lost 10 lbs. I still want to lose about 5 more lbs. I always seemed to get to a certain point and then I fizzle out and don't finish the job. I really should have started another round of P90X but I have a vacation coming up and wanted to start afterwords. Unfortunately once you stop its hard to get going again. I've been all over the place but plan I jumping back in and pushing play.
