Hi I just ordered this yesterday. Hoping to receive it soon. I have never done this before but I am very excited to try. I have 100lbs to lose so the hardcore workouts are not for me yet. I also plan to start eating clean. I hope this will help me change my lifestyle to be more healthy. What kind of results did you get the first time you used them?

Looking forward to receiving/sharing the support and encouragement!

Hi everyone, I also have a facebook group starting about the same time (offically starting) on 1/7/13. This is just a support, make friends, and get motivation group for anyone who is starting Slim in 6 or Turbofire in January (right now it is mostly Slim in 6 ladies). I'll be posting here on the board some too - but if you'd like to also join us on facebook, just send me a friend request and message me a request to join it at https://www.facebook.com/#!/sherrie.peavy.9

I lost 13 lbs my first time through. However, at that time I was stubborn about my diet and didn't really want to change what I was eating. I still ate around 2000-2100 calories a day and it wasn't necessarily "clean eating" either. I was still drinking diet cokes (I have since quit or only allow myself 1-2 a week), still having pizza once a week, and still having mexican food at least once a week! So I think cleaning up the diet could possibly give even better effects. Also, 13 pounds doesn't sound like a whole lot, but the inches are more noticeable than the pounds on the scale.

I also remember my first time through -- I was really suprised how sore I was during the first week! Even though it is mostly "low impact" you really work all your body muscles in different ways! So just prepare for that - you may be very sore the first week - but it means your body is changing and it means you are making progress towards your goals!

Lauree10,
You probably have the same version as I: circa 2000 VHS...ha,ha,ha...
What are you hoping to accomplish? I'm sure you'll get great results.

Hi Natsha2013,

Congratulations on your attempt to get started on losing 100lbs.
What ever you do, don't give up. Set your goal and kick its butt.

The first time for me was after my baby was born. I always enjoyed working out and being fit. During my pregnancy I would swim and walk, a lot. My diet has always been well balanced so eating healthily has not been an issue. All though I did not gain the dreadful pregnancy pounds, I did feel flabby and out of shape after all was said and done.

As I mentioned in my early post, my results were amazing. Within 2 weeks I was receiving comments about how slender I was looking. In 30 days, I had dropped 10 lbs. By the 6th week, I was back to my high school weigh and beyond!! My metabolism went through the roof. I lost so much weight that strangers would tell me to eat a burger or two. No joke. Once I got that positive feed back, I was able to get to a healthy, looking weight and maintain that.

Looking forward to supporting one another during our personal quest to feel better about ourselves and look great.

Hi SherryP100,

Thanks for the Facebook info. I don't go into fb too much but will attempt to do so once I start this program. My fb user name is salsa con quesadilla.

I do not remember feeling sore doing a cardio workout, but when I initially start w/o's like boot camps or free weights, boy I can feel stiff like a board.
Stretching helps a lot . My favorite stretch exercise is on our local PBS channel. It's call Classical Stretch. Typically I do my w/o first thing and stretch in the evening before bed.

Are you about to start a program yourself?

Hi!

I'm about to start (or restart!) Slim in 6, so would love to be part of this accountability!

I too have probably got 100lbs to lose, but I tend to measure myself. Also, my focus is on getting healthy and strong - have spent too many years on the weight loss roller coaster! I've no doubt I'll lose the weight, but I'm more motivated by showing up each day and doing each workout the best I can.

My aim is to work my way up to the more intense workouts like P90X, so will get started with this first. I'm really excited - I'll actually be starting on the 2nd Jan - hope that's OK?

I'd love to join the Facebook group - will look forward to connecting with all of you!

Best wishes,

Sarada

Hi SherryP100,



Are you about to start a program yourself?


Yes, I am starting a Slim in 6/Turbofire combination. I was going to start 1/7/13 because I'm doing Insanity right now...but I think I'm going to go ahead and switch programs because the Insanity is getting to be a little too hard on my knees! So now I will be starting SI6/TF tomorrow 12/31! The reason I am doing a combination is because I know my personality and I just cannot stick to the same program for 90 days, I'm not sure why but I just have to switch things up. I can do a program for up to 3 weeks and then need a switch. When I did Slim in 6 before, I did it for 2 or 3 weeks, then switched and did some Turbo Jam for a week or two, then back to Slim in 6 for the last 3 weeks. Since I've done SI6 before I am going to start tomorrow with a week of the Level 2 Disc.

Hello Fellow Workout Divas!

Yes, that's right! I'm so excited to have us get fit together.

Sadly, I haven't received my SI6. For sure I thought it would arrive yesterday, Saturday, according to the shipping info.

Keeping my fingers crossed that it'll arrive tomorrow.

Sarada81: yea, you're on a mission. You go girl. By all means, do start your program. I like how you plan to pace yourself and start with Si6 before P90X. I've done P90 and personally I didn't see results like I did w/ SI6. I got stronger, which is great. But I like to sweat, yea, I know, call me crazy. I hardly did w/ P90.

SherryP100: how's the Slim/turbo combo working out for you? I totally understand about changing it up. That's actually good because you focus on different body parts and you do not become bored. Yea for you!

Lauree10: have you received your new DVDs? They're probably stuck with mine. Ha,ha,ha... Your arms feeling better?

Lillitebrite: thanks for joining us. Starting tomorrow is perfectly fine. What are your goals?

What are your meal plans, Ladies? Will you be following the guide that is provided with the program?

Good luck & don't stop till you get what you want!!

This is a great thread! I love the message boards because it brings together such great people! Too bad you didn't get your videos this weekend Lsmomx2emoticon Its great that some of you have started though.

I have to say that Slim in 6 really works! Having completed P90X and Insanity, I did a few Slim in 6 workouts over the Thanksgiving holidays and with friends that last few weeks and boy, I was sore! They are great! I like the idea of a Slim/Turbo combo.

Following the meal plan will be 50% of the results. It is a good idea to focus on planning that out before the week starts.

I would love to join this group. I am actually 6 days into the new Combat program. Its alot of fun.
Keep Pushing Play all! Let's keep those new years resolutions!

Great thread!

I've been searching for a group doing SI6 starting today. I'd love to join this motivated group so we can all offer each other the motivation we need to get through the next 6 weeks! I did the SI6 program about 3 years ago and stuck with it for the full 6 weeks. I'd like to again stick out the full 6 weeks and then move on to Turbo Jam or P90X. I'm looking to lose about 10-20 pounds and tone up. I just ordered Shakeology today to help with the diet part of the plan as well. I plan to stick to the diet portion as well, as defined in the SI6 book. I already scheduled all of my workouts in the auto scheduler at 8:30 pm EST.

Good luck fellow Slim in 6ers!

I'm also starting SI6 today. I first did it about three years ago and finally lost the baby fat (the "baby" started college this past Fall). I also ordered the new DVDs since I had the old ones. They showed up on Friday so hopefully everyone else that has been waiting will get theirs today.

Let's push play!
