Hi. My name is Theresa. I am 36 although been told many times that I don't look like I am. I had never struggled with a weight issue until I reached college. Now call me naive but I didn't think about the fact that I could gain weight. I had always been thin (a size 5 and 97 lbs at my high school graduation). It never occured to me that now I was on my own, no longer walking to school, eating a bunch of fried foods. Slowly I gained weight. I tried at various times to lose the weight and I went up and down. After I graduated college I had gained about 30 -40 lbs. Then I fell in love with the wrong guy and I was very depressed and gained another 30 lbs. I was a mess and just wanted to die. Finally I moved to NH where I live today. I met some great friends who helped me with the emotional and mental abuse I had suffered from my parents and this loser. emoticon After that was all solved I began to try and work on my weight issue and I actually was doing pretty good. I managed to lose 40 lbs at one point but then started to develop some bad eating habits and gained all but 10 back. So that's pretty much where I am now. Having had a child now and wanting so desperately to be a good mom to him and be able to keep up with him and play with him, I decided to try this program. emoticon I am rearing and ready to go!!!! so . . . Let's GO!!!!! emoticon

First of all, Pretty name!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It sounds like things have not been easy for you up until now. But I have to tell you, that Power 90 is probably one of the best decisions you have made! These message boards are a great source of support, motivation, and information...so come here often!!! Drink lots of water! Follow the diet guide that came with your program, and eat what you know you should. Push play 6 days a week, and work as hard as you can-but listen to your body, and don't hurt yourself! When you follow the program the way it's designed, you will get results!!!!!
Congratulations!!

hey there,

You made the choice to buy power 90, right now make the choice to committ 110% to the program. Stick to the diet and do the workouts and you'll get better results then you could ever imagine. Remember that you are going to have a few bad days here and there but give those days all you have! You're still burning calories! I always say that when my body is dragging is when I can make the most improvement! Good luck and I'll check back in on your progress!

Theresa,
I have been looking forward to getting the Power 90 package -- I finally got it on Tuesday. I have read the book and watched the start up DVD. Now I have decided that this weekend it will all start. So, I'm going to do the fasting thing on Saturday and Sunday.
Any other suggestions, Theresa, before my "D-day"?
Did the fasting really help to start up for you?
I hope to keep in touch. I'm a little nervous about this but the messages in your thread are helpful for me.
Gary

I have a really good friend named Theresa...we call her "T". It's a beautiful name!

Welcome to the P90 family! It sounds like you've already spent some time in chat, and you've obviously discovered the message boards. I've done lots of "weight loss" things in the past, but this is BY FAR the best decision I've ever made! It's an awesome program!! You're doing to LOVE it!!!

I sometimes like to caution people, though, that like anything else, it gets harder to stay committed after the initial "honeymoon" is over. Please don't let that discourage you at any point. 90 days can start to seem like a long time, so break your goals into manageable steps...15 day increments, or Week One, Week Two, etc. Push play 6 days a week. Eat well. Get lots of rest. Drink lots of water. And there you go...a reenergized, stronger, leaner YOU!

Again, WELCOME!!!!!!

You are off to a good start. Reading the book and watching the video are the first step. Of course ordering the program was the very first start. emoticon

I think your next step should be to post pics. I know its hard but its a good step to take. It's rather a freeing thing too. You do it, its out there and you say. OK I'm on my way!!!! emoticon

As far as the fast goes, for me, it went better than I thought it would. I thought I would be so hungry I'd cave but I really wasn't too awfully hungry. The trick is to drink lots of water and keep up with that even after the fast. Whenever I felt hunger pangs, I drank my water. And it really does make you feel better I think. Just don't plan anything heavy duty for those two days. Keep it simple. Now the second day was the toughest and I felt more tempted but everytime I did I'd look at my pic and say, "do i really want to continue looking like that?" of course the answer was a big "NO"!!!! Stick with it!!!! You can do it. It's only two days. And it actually makes you appreciate food more. I lost 4 lbs on the fast and I was worried I'd gain it back when I started eating but I didn't. I also had a tremendous headache during the evening of the second day but for me that was the worst it got.

Feel free to email me at Sydwee915@aol.com. And also visit the chat room. I get the most encouragement from the people there. Meeting people who have been through it and seeing their before and after pics really helps me alot.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Good luck . Hope I helped ya abit. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey thanks for your vote of confidence and thanks for the info about the honeymoon phase. I'll keep that in mind . I know how those things can get though because I have tried some other things and ended up giving up for various reasons. I really hope I can stick with this one. The difference this time is I have a motive for wanting to lose weight besides just to be thin. I see his face everyday. I also had never put pics of myself up before like I did now and I put them where I see them everyday so that helps keep me motivated and also this time I have support where as before I really didn't. That makes a TON of difference.

so one day at a time here. so far so good. emoticon
