Are there any REAL fat people doing iNSANiTY??
fat insanity obese overweight
2/23/11 3:48 AM
Because all i see is people who only need to lose 7 or 10 pounds. Where are the people who need to lose 30+ pounds???

Im 6'1 280 pounds (female) i used to weigh 172 but i broke my leg and ankle and it stopped me from playing basketball. 3 months in a wheelchair i gained 37 pounds. Graduated to crutches then gained 20 pounds. A year and a half later im 280 pounds and still not able to partcipate in sports. I started Insanity a month ago and im down 29 pounds.

POW!!

So i was just lookin for people who are REALLY overweight on here
that is all.... buddy me

5'4" at 170 XD I need to lose about the same, 30-ish pounds of fat. I started with pretty much zero muscle, so I haven't really lost a lot of weight yet by the scale, just been gaining muscle. emoticon

I just started Insanity a week ago. I'm 5'6" and the last time I was weighed I was 250 lbs. SO yes there are some people doing Insanity that need to lose more than a few pounds emoticon.

It's encouraging to me to know that I'm not the only person crazy enough to do this workout in my current state.

My mom started Insanity at 224 pounds, by the time we finished 60 days she was down to 207. Now we're doing a P90X/Insanity hybrid and the weight is still coming off. Look her up, her profile is SherriNS, she'd love to hear from you!

I was wondering the same thing. I just ordered Insanity, but have not received it yet. From the infomercial it appears that everyone is pretty much fit before starting it, but I wanted to give it a try anyway.

3 years ago I lost 107 pounds...went from 294 to 188...then last year I regained 50...so I started the program at 238.8, and I want to get back down BELOW the 188...I am in the middle of week 5, and I am down 11 pounds (but sensitive to salt!!). My wife is only down 3-4 pounds. We are BOTH however down about 2-4 inches all around. I am hoping the pounds drop much faster the 2nd month!!

I am 5'5" and 250 lbs. I am planning on starting the program on March 7th when I am supposed to get it. I am excited to see others who have more to lose and the fact that they are sticking with it and it is not killing them. emoticon The number is not so much an issue as the overall feeling of having more energy and clothing fit better. I hope to see updates from others and plan to post my own.

I am 315 pounds and I'm going to start INSANITY just as soon as I get out of college(2 months). I'm having a tough time fitting the workouts into my hectic schedule, but I am very serious about wanting to lose weight. I'm taking the INSANITY diet guide home with me tonight to begin working on my meals. I'm currently doing a hybrid of cardio from P90X and INSANITY.

DO YOUR BEST, FORGET THE REST AND DIG DEEP

Hi, I just started doing insanity this week. I am 5'5" and 240 pounds. I've had to modify some of the moves and I can't do the whole program through just yet because I'm so out of shape, but I'm just going to try and do a little more and more each day. Hopefully someday I'll be fit enough to do the whole program through in 60 days! Are the other overweight people like me able to do everything, or have you had to modify too?

when I started 7 weeks ago I was 174, 2 weeks to go. 10 pounds light and went from an 12 to an 8. Not done yet, my husband and I are going to take 3 weeks away from Insanity and then start round 2 emoticon

Good luck on your journey my friend. I was also very active and had an accident, well more like a sickness (Lyme disease). After years of struggling with illness due to low immunity I am kicking butt again. Hope you can soon too emoticon

I started out at 263lbs just over two weeks ago. I still have a tough time keeping up after a while ( I just have to take a few more breathers than most I would imagine) my 2nd fit test was an amazing difference. Sometimes I have to stop because my knees really start to hurt, so I just jog in place or something until the exercise that hurts them is finished. I am already in the mid-high 240 range and falling (about 15 pounds in the first 2 weeks).Lost an inch in the neck, two in the belly, and im already wearing some of the old clothes in my closet. I can tell a huge difference in my endurance and day to day activities are much easier. I havent seen 200 lbs since High School and I plan on seeing it again soon! Good luck to everybody

In my opinion Insanity can be a tough start for people who need to lose 30lbs or more. It is one cardio intense program and usually people who need to lose that much weight are not in too good of cardio shape.

I feel that I need to lose 30lbs and I am also choosing Insanity. The first week has kicked my butt and I normally run 3 times a week.

I am going to start a thread with a kick off for next Monday. Let's all get in it to help motivate each other.
