Saying Hello! Started on 09/10/2012
Hello Everyone! This is my first thread on the forums. Me and my wife began P90X on September 10th! We are currently on Day 6 of Week 9 with the Lean routine. Both of us had a good bit of weight to lose. I started at 215 and my wife at 164. I am now 184 and the wife is at 147. Oh, I am 6' and the wife is 5'2".

This is our 3rd time trying to complete P90X. So far we have made it 3 weeks longer than our previous attempts. This time we will complete 90 days and continue on to Classic once we are finished this round. I have let procrastination stop me just about every time, but im tired of being fat! I am tired of trying to run around with my kids and being winded after only a few minutes. I am tired of standing straight up, looking down and not being able to see my toes. And OMG I was so tired of having man breasts!!!

With the way my body gained weight, it was all in my core. So all the weight was in my chest, stomach, butt and upper thighs. I began to lose confidence, and was even fairly depressed. Every time i looked in the mirror i frowned at myself, mentally kicking myself for letting it get so far.

BUT! On August 6th, after 21 years of smoking, i had my Dr prescribe me the patch and quit smoking FOR GOOD! From that day i told myself it was time to get back into shape and make some changes for the better! For a few weeks me and my wife attempted the "Insanity" fit test every day. We could barely complete it in the first 2 weeks. We realized "Insanity" was just way too much cardio at the time and was likely going to put us in the hospital. So we moved over to P90X and couldn't be happier!

We are not ready to post updated pics yet as we would like to achieve better results before doing so. I mean, 31 lbs for me and nearly 20 for the wife is great, but we still have a bit of our midsection to tighten up. My goal is to have a 6 pack before Xmas!

Anyway, that is my short story for now!

Thanks for listening!

Thank you very much, Mike! Yes we are getting some GREAT results. We haven't decided if our 2nd round will be P90X Classic or Insanity, but we're definitely in this for the long haul now! Thanks for your post! emoticon
