Hey there, I saw your post and wanted to reach out to you. I am a fellow LE Officer - UC. I, too was in the same boat as you--realized it about two years ago. A guy I work with, who is also in his early 40s started doing P90X and dropped about 25 pounds and 13% body fat. He then did Insanity and that's when I got hooked. I started doing Insanity in October 2010, when I was at 213 lbs (my academy weight was 190--that's what working midnights will do to you, I guess). After the first two weeks, I got myself down 10 pounds. Then, when I realized I had to start eating sensibly, I got myself back down to my fighting weight-190. I feel great and have been able to maintain it.

If you're already into the whole health/fitness scene, one of the things that I found that was successful was being part of a support group. The equation for success is fitness + nutrition + support = SUCCESS. This has helped me not get bored and maintain my motivation and passion for fitness.

It's ironic that I came across your post, as I am starting another round of Insanity the second week of January. You are welcome to join my group and we can both keep each other motivated. The location of that message board thread is:

I look forward to talking to you more on the thread, my brother.

Note: I have no picture since I'm working an undercover assignment right now.
