As you can tell from my screen name,I am a person that is no stranger to changing things in my life that are not working for me.I made MAJOR life changes a few years ago and the results have been amazing.I feel that this (P90X and other BB products)are working in my life the same way.I have stopped the unhealthy eating habits,erratic workout habits and I am on the road to a way of life that I love and IS working for me.

I started P90X on Sept. 28th 2009. I was 205 LBs. and had about 15% body fat and going up fast.I was one and a half years into a two year project managing a construction project at a hospital.My diet was starting to take it's toll on me.I would go into the cafeteria in the morning and eat sausage,biscuits and gravy,pancakes with tons of butter and syrup.I would eat similar foods at lunch,cheeseburgers,fries and an occasional salad,a BIG candy bar every day(sometimes 2),then I would get home and graze on more junk food.Dinner would consist of what ever I felt like eating,sometimes healthy,and even when it was healthy I would power down loads of ice cream and or cookies on a regular basis.

I had been in shape before and I was actually going to the gym during this time but I had hit a wall.
I was only hitting the gym whenever I felt like it,I had no goals to speak of,(except how much can I bench press on my birthday.)My family was saying things like....why aren't you working out anymore...I thought you ate healthy???,your belly is hanging over your belt!!!I was in denial for awhile about my body,but when I looked into the mirror there really was no hiding what I was looking at.I would take up running for awhile,doing more cardio at the gym,but again,I had no set routine and my diet was still very poor.I had hit a bottom for me.My waist was the biggest it had ever been.One day I was looking in the mirror and I got out the tape measure and started to see where I was really at in the waist.It was 37".Over the last couple of years I had seen the infomercials for P90X and thought,that looks like the real deal,I need something like that to get me back on track,then I would think...I know how to workout,I don't need to work out in front of a TV.I did go out and put up a pull-up bar in the garage though.But,I still was hit and miss with the workouts and the diet was still not exactly the healthiest.That day when I REALLY looked in the mirror and measured my waist was the day I got on the phone and ordered P90X.

I ordered P90X on or about Sept.18th,that was the day I quit eating in the hospital cafeteria and started eating healthy foods again.I received P90X on my doorstep on Sept.21st and started reading the nutrition guide and getting reading to start.My 1st P90X official workout was on Sept. 28th 2009.I have not second guessed myself on that decision.The ride so far has been incredible.The results have been amazing.I have more energy,I lost 25 Lbs. of fat and have made major gains in my core and legs.(those were areas that I had neglected for years)

I am part of TEAM RAGE and my Coach is RAGE 9498.

Hey Ted!

You've been such a great inspiration and now that I've read more about you, I continue to be amazed at your transformation. As a physician in a county hospital - I can't tell you how many lives I see ruined by self-destruction with alcohol, poor diet, and other poor choices (I am not being judgmental but defining poor as what the majority would refer to it as). You've made a huge difference for yourself and your loved ones. You're now making differences for others like myself and I thank you for that. Keep up the strong work on Round 2 and let's continue this P90X journey! I'm on round 1, day 10 and counting buddy.
