Starting 10/29/12! Lets encourage each other!
Showing 16 results.
Hey guys! My name is Aimee and I am sick of living such an unhealthy lifestyle. I want to make a change and I know that with some encouragement and motivation from you guys we can take on this journey together. Last time I weighed myself I was 270 and I am 5'7. Sick I know...I am a 26 (almost 27) year old female and I am really ready to make this change. So I am starting power 90 tomorrow and I hope beyond everything that I can stay motivated to press play for the next 90 days. I have been such a yo-yo dieter when it has come down to it and I really need to stick with something. I also want to finally look in the mirror and not think horrible things about the way I look, I want to be confident. So please join this and help me stick with it. I know I need the help along the way. I will be attempting to write on here every day so that it can keep me accountable to the pact I am making to myself. I am hoping to lose a decent amount of weight in the next 90 days. Anyways...I am writing this late and hope it all make sense. Come join me in this crazy hard but I am sure very rewarding journey!

Aimee

Hi Aimee! My name is Sherrie and I would love to help keep you motivated and accountable! Before I found Chalene Johnson/TurboFire and Beachbody, I too, was a yo-yo dieter! My highest weight was about 205 lbs 11 yrs ago and I struggled to lose weight and keep it off for years! The end 2010, I was closing the gap and coming up on that number again (186 lbs) and was so tired of struggling with weightloss! I got into Wii fitness and was working out to the Biggest Loser Challenge and counting calories and to my amazement I lost 25 lbs emoticon by the summer of 2011. I didn't love working out, I just did it to lose weight! August of 2011 I fell off after having visitors for 3 weeks and not completing any workouts emoticon I stopped counting and went back to my unhealthy eating habits emoticon and gained 15lbs of it back emoticon by Dec of 2011! That's when I found Chalene and my life was forever changed! I became addicted emoticon to her workouts and started counting calories again and this time... It was a lifestyle change.. Something I am so excited about!! I have lost 30 lbs and Changed my body in so many ways I never thought possible! I have been diligent and dedicated to my workouts and no longer "count calories," instead eating a healthy, well balanced "diet" .. Man I hate that word! It's not a diet ... It's a lifestyle! emoticon

Again, I would love to help encourage, motivate, and keep you accountable! I KNOW from experience that it IS POSSIBLE to change your life! All it takes is ONE DAY AT A TIME emoticon Just PUSH PLAY emoticon

See you in here some time tomorrow emoticon I will be here often! I am an RN and work 12hr shifts and have a family, but I will check in with you often emoticon

Hi Aimee, I'm Wayne. I just started Power 90 today as well, and it certainly can't hurt to have as much motivation as possible. I'd be happy to join in on the encouragement!

Hope you have a great Day 1!

Hope you are recovering from the storm, and that it didn't cause too much trouble for you.

Just finished my Day 4 workout - feeling pretty good that I got through it and was able to do less of the alternate moves today. Looking forward to trying to improve again next time.

Have a great day, and have a even better Day 1 once you are able to start!

Oh My! Hope all is well. I can't imagine! I live in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. And man.. the pictures I'm seeing.. make me cringe. May all go well with you and your family. Hope you get your power back soon.

Fire 45 EZ done last night for me. It was supposed to be my "rest day" as I scheduled it for Halloween... but I just couldn't NOT push play yesterday. It always brightens my mood. emoticon

Aimee,
Once you get your power back, feel free to join us at the, "Power 90 Starting Oct 29-Nov 5", thread, we would love to have you. There are several of us that are checking in daily and I am completely determined to make it the full ninety days, (I just completed day 5). If you haven't checked it out already, then I would suggest you at least read all of CoachZuba's posts. And then post every day when you have completed your workout.

Or if you would rather just post in this thread that's fine, I'll stop by from time to time to offer encouragement and maybe request some myself. And I hope everything is going okay for you over there after the storm.

-Chris

Hey all,

I am looking to getting back on the P90 wagon tomorrow and wanted to see if I could join in this merry band. I'm a former P90 Grad that reverted back to bad ways and am trying to rekindle the magic. One thing that DID help a lot when I did this in the past was the conversation with others in the same phase, so I am going to try and make that happen again.

Aimee - I live in CT but we were fortunate and didn't personally lose power. I hope they have yours restored soon do you can rejoin.

Wayne - hope you got through the week well and any soreness is wearing away. Not looking forward to that at all.

@Don - Thanks. Just wrapped up my day 6. Not too sore, other than my abs, but that's likely because I just finished working them. Rest day for me tomorrow, then back to pushing play on Monday!

I'll also follow in here, but see Chris's post above for the thread where a bunch of us that just started are also posting.

Hey Guys!!

So Day one is down! I did Sculpt 1-2 today and I felt pretty good doing it...some things were harder than others. I definitely could not do all the push ups he wanted me to do, but I know when I can do them all in the end it will make me feel pretty good about myself. Do any of you guys know the plan as to when you should switch levels? Is it a certain amount of weeks?

So I had a low moment this weekend, which i guess was good seeing as it made me want to press play that much more. I went out on Friday night with some friends and while we were out i got hit on by a guy who told me he liked "thick women". First off, what kind of a pickup line is telling a girl she is fat. I was mortified and just wanted to leave and cry. I don't want to be that girl anymore, just thinking about it still makes me want to curl up and die. I want to feel confident in my own skin and not feel like no guy is going to like me cause I look this way. I am never felt like that...more often that not I feel fat and ugly and I am sick of it. Anyways, I figured this is a safe place as any to be real about life. I hope you guys feel the same way! please feel free to vent and say what is really on your mind, because I am going to.

Hope you all pressed play today!
Aimee

Way to go getting started! If you keep pushing play and consistently meet your daily calorie target then you will succeed. If you miss a workout or blow your nutrition plan, then get right back at it. Don't use it as an excuse to quit.

I think the idea is to change to the level 3-4 videos at the 45 day mark, but really you should change whenever you're ready whether it's sooner or later than that. Whenever you feel you're not being challenged enough by the 1-2 videos, then it's time to change.

As far as the guy hitting on you, I hope you can turn those negative feelings into positive action. If you can make it through one day then you can make it through ninety!

Good for you Aimee! Glad you pressed play!

As for that guy at the bar.... what a dumb ass!! As I was reading that, I was thinking the exact same thing.. "who does that and what kind of pick up line is that ?" Clearly, he has no idea how to pick up a woman! I can imagine how it made you feel. BUT I am glad you are using those feelings as motivation to make that change! We all have moments that give us the push we need to get to it!

I am still on my TF train! I love it! Finishing up week 8 in the next couple of days and then onto the next phase emoticon

I know I'm not doing the same workout, but I'll pop in from time to time emoticon
