Month 2 of Insanity... no results?! Help?!
So I started Insanity on April 2, 2012 hoping to loose these last 10 lbs. I've pushed play everyday, and my heart rate monitor estimated me burning around 500 calories through month 1, and my heart rate gets up to around 180, so I know I'm pushing myself. My diet is clean, though I am not following the meal plan. Shakeology is expensive! I was eating around 1400 calories a day, but have since bumped it up to around 1700 calories. I have lost ZERO weight in month 1, and am getting a little discouraged. My endurance has improved dramatically, but no results on the scale or measurements. What is going on?!

You probably need to be eating more. Maybe try bumping up to 2000 to 2500. You are burning a lot of calories and you need to feed your body.

raske77 is right...when did you bump your calories up to 1700? Have you used the calculator here at the website to figure out how much you should be eating...the calculator is under fitness tools. It will take your height, weight, age, and program into account when calculating your calories. Its really important to eat the right amount.
Glad your endurance has improved...you know you are improving your health.

If you were eating 1400 calories a day and doing Insanity but still not seeing a weight or measurement change, I have to ask, what was your caloric intake, weight and measurements before starting Insanity? I ask because you state your endurance has improved dramatically. So based on that we can assume the program is working as intended. Like a previous poster stated, you may want to increase your caloric intake. Don't put your body into starvation mode, if you do it will store the fat, not burn it. Take in extra calories so the body has something to burn while working out and throughout the day

Jessica: Please review this video from our director of results, it explains why we need to eat more in order to keep losing weight and burning fat.

I bumped it up to 1700 calories about a week ago. My calorie intake before insanity was 1200-1300, I started Insanity at 129, and am now up to 130.

I'm 5'7, and my measurements are Arms: 10.5, Waist: 28, Hips: 33, Thigh 20.5. I ran 20 miles a week before Insanity, so my activity level was moderate. I can tell my endurance has increased because I run my daily mile faster!

Now I'm just trying to loose the last 5 lbs of baby weight... so it's a little frustrating.

I didn't realize how far off my calorie intake was, and maybe I need to bump it up even more? The calculator said 1929 calories, which seems like a lot to me. I burn around 600-650 in the max workouts, and my heart rate gets up to around 180, so I know I'm pushing it!

Some Internet Explorer has problems seeing the video link. Try another browser like GoogleChrome or Safari. This is a common problem with some of the TBB's video links.

BTW, Smallville, I forwarded your posting to a bunch of other posters having similar question, and gave you credit emoticon They thought it was very informative. Guess a lot of people are not getting enough fuel.
