Starting Slim in 6 on 2/2/13, looking for others for mutual support
Starting Slim in 6 on 2/2/13, looking for others for mutual support
dc obese black women whole 30

Hey all!

I have an older version (probably 7 years old) of Slim in 6. I used to do it years ago, and (fondly) remember getting stronger. I'm getting married (again) to the love of my life in July, and I don't want to be a fat bride (not that there's anything wrong with fat brides, I just don't want to be one).

I figured I'd start on a Saturday so that I could always take Fridays off. I'll be walking on the treadmill in the mornings with a group from work, and then doing SI6 in the evenings with my wife.

I'm 5'4" tall, and don't know exactly how much I weigh. I don't plan to follow the nutrition plan, as I started Whole30 on 1/15. Under the program, you can't weigh yourself for 30 days. However, I KNOW that I've lost weight because my aspirational reception dress (which I couldn't zip all the way up when I bought it) now fits like a glove.

I have more than 80 pounds total that I'd like to lose. When I started Whole30, I weighed 242 pounds. emoticon

I'd love to join with others who are on the path to better fitness!

I have the older version of Slim in 6 also and never really put it to use. I started using it again two weeks ago and I'm feeling stronger already. Have worked through the soreness and am feeling pretty good now. Feel free to keep in touch and we could do this together.

I just started slim in 6 today. So far so good. I did the first dvd this morning and i just got done biking for about thirty minutes. I am super excited. I just want to get healthy for my two beautiful baby girls.

I started on 2/1 so I'm just 1 day ahead of you! emoticon I weighed 221 on January 2nd and kicked off the new year with the Ulitmate Reset and lost 19 pounds in the 3 weeks. I lost another 5 after my first week of Slim in 6 (had to take a week off from full out exercise after the reset). I'm now in ONEderland at 197 and want to get to 145 ... but my dream is to get back to 135! So like you - I have a long way to go. I bought it back at the end of summer so my version is newer, but I'd still like to do this with buddies! If it's easier, we could try creating a private group on Facebook where we can more quickly support each other. Thoughts? And good luck everyone!!! Here's to a slimmer 2013 for all of us!

Hey girls! Congrats to you all for starting Slim in 6! It's a great program and I'm sure you will love it and get great results if you stick with it in addition to focusing on keeping your nutrition in check!

You are looking for support and I already have a private fb group for daily support and accountability. In fact, one of my ladies just started her 2nd week of SI6!
