I've spent the last week doing Zumba to lose weight and now I want to do some real weights so I'm getting back in to Power 90. Anyone else wanting to start P90 in the next week?

Hi Sian,

I'm starting on Saturday 22 December. Insane, I know - it's as though I don't deserve all the scrummy food I'll be eating at this time of year and want to put the brakes on a bit....Well maybe I'm just being boring and sensible.....

Good luck to us both!

I'm on day 5! Started on the 17th! Quit smoking on the 18th. I already feel ridiculously amazing. Hesitant to take before photos, but I'm going to force myself to do it in the next couple days :S

Morning!
I started 12/26/12. I have done the program before and it works, sometimes it gets a little boring, but then life is a little boring sometimes. Every time the 90 days is over i tend to flounder and eat more, and not workout and here i am again. very frustrated. but it's my own fault, so what do i do??? i get out of bed at 5:15am and press play.

The message board work, so keep posting!!

over 50 new woman 13th week of p90
12/29/12 5:59 AM as a reply to Sian.
I started P90 on December 16. It was a Christmas Gift from me to me. My husband asked "Don't you want to wait until after the holidays?" NO! Once I decided and once I ordered the DVDs I was ready. In fact, I worked out with a YouTube video of a young woman doing some kind of Beachbody workout for 2 days while I waited for the DVDs to arrive via USPS.

Now I"m hooked.

I get up every morning at 5 and push play. Now that I'm out of school for 2 weeks (I'm a kindergarten teacher) I've been getting some more sleep. But I still push play in the mornings. Just a little later in the morning.

After 12 days this is what I can say for sure:

1. I don't have that achy feeling when I get out of bed in the morning. My elbows used the ache! Not anymore.
2. I have more energy than I've had in years
3. My knees don't crack and pop when I bend over
4. My clothes are already beginning to fit more comfortably.

I told myself to wait until day 30 to weigh/measure. But I just couldn't wait! My weight has stayed the same. But my measurement? I've lost 2 inches in my waist. ALREADY! WOWZA

**now let me say this, it's Christmas. And yes, I've "tasted" a few treats that I would otherwise pass up. I've eaten what my family has eaten, just smaller serving sizes. I've skipped most of the brownies, cobblers and pie. But I've still had ......... well, like last night I had a small bowl of chicken and dumplings. I don't want to make my family and friends feel "weird" during the holidays about what I"m eating. And yo know people feel weird about food! In another week everybody I know will be dieting! And I'll be already on my way.

I haven't taken before photos yet. I couldn't figure out how to take a full length photo of myself! I'm going to do it today. Somehow. I may have to be brave and ask my youngest daughter to do it.

I want to be a P90 success story. Thank you.

I am starting Power 90 this week. I did it last week, starting on 12/23, but that first week I was just figuring out how to do the routines. Now I am considering today, 12/30, to be my DAY 1.
