What I've Lost

Since starting P90X3 I've lost a lot.  Not a ton of weight because Weight Watchers had already gotten me within my goal range.  I truly think that weight loss is more about what you eat, but exercise can help you out of plateaus and help sculpt your body and boost metabolism.  But I most definitely lost some pounds and a bunch of inches.

When I first started the program I weighed 123 lbs (my goal is 115) at the end of the 90 days I weighed in at 116.8 (I've been hovering around there since, summer is a little harder to stay on point with my eating).  So that's a total of 6.2 pounds.

I also lost inches:

Waist:  2.5 inches
Hips: 1 inch
Chest: 0.5 inch
Arms: 1 inch
Thighs: 2 inches

I've also lost most of my excuses.  "I have no time" I'm worth 30 minutes a day.  "It's too hard with the kids"  I do it after bed time or during Arya's nap.  Sometimes Isabella does it with me.  "It's too hard"  Each video has a modifier so I can do what I can until I'm strong enough to do more.  When I first started I couldn't do a push up off my knees...now I can.

I feel stronger, leaner, more healthy, and more fit.  I'm not promoting this program, I'm not even a beach body coach.  Just a happy customer.

It sounds like you got great results. I need to try this and 30 minutes a day is very doable.

Great losses on P90X3! I haven't done that one yet.

You go girl!! That's so awesome. I'm dying to get my body back already and it's only been 3 weeks. Ugh. I honestly don't know how I'll do it now with 3 kids though. This is seriously so hard!!
