    Terrible start for me.
    I don't know if i shed more sweat or tears. Last month i only lost 1.3 - for the entire month. So my positive hope was- ok at least i have lost some inches .. i feel it.. i see it.. ok.. so i take the measurements this am. 0 .. 0 0 0 00 .. nothing.. zero after zero.. n othing has changed.. nothing.
    I step on the scale.. and it's still 1.3 loss .. - nothing .. I was supposed to lose that in a week . Not a month. But i had to accept it and move on and hope for some inches to be gone. And this morning i screamd and cried through the workout. I didn't scream because i worked so hard, no.. i wish.. - i screamed out of frustration and anger. ANd during the workout i kept sobing and crying i just couldn't stop it.
    One thought kept coming up and i tried to push it away but it just kept coming.

    You will work out again for the whole month.. and you will have no results.. all the others on the challange will ahve lost weight and inches- you will be the only one with nothing. nothing.

    I'm scared, hurt.. seriously.. angry and frustrated. I'm doing it.. but not like last month - last month my workouts were pumped up with energy and motivation i worked out like crazy. This month i'm starting with tears and pain .. and no motivation.

    sorry for ruining the start.. i just can't stop crying .. i'm so angry

    it is very fustrating not t seeing results but maybe u just hit a plateau. dont think about not losing anything, think about how you've MAINTAINED it! that is what really matters! so long as you dont gain it like i did this weekend you are fine. push yourself harder this month keep looking at the end picture losing weight and maintaining it off. we are all here for support. cry do what ever you have to do to express yourself just dont give up. have faith that the scale and inches will come off :) stay strong :)

    lets do this!!!!!!!

    Count me in... I was planning on starting over this evening. I started the 30 Day Shred last week (10/26). Yea, it lasted two days. I couldn't walk after that. OUCH. But, now I think I'm ready. Hopefully, I got the "first" few days over with. I'm really hoping to lose those last 10 pounds.

    All measurments etc- can be sent to " edinat " -

    The way i keep up with the topics is when i go to the forums i just check on " my topics " and it comes on the list of all the topics where i have been posting any comments. I don't know any other way- maybe there's a better way .. but this one works for me .

    OMFG (to quote my 12 year old)... that was the longest 20 minutes of my life....but if I can do it the next 29 days I really think I'll see some difference...Will take my measurements wed., I'm doing another challenge and the weigh in days are on Wednesday.

    And I couldn't do the jump jacks I need a better sports bra blah...but I kept moving the entire time.
    just a quick question I don't have an HRM so what would I log this as?

    I've seen people put it under "circut training", but dang it feels like we should have burned more calories. If there's a better one to log it under please tell us.

    Whew!! Day 1 down! My legs are like jelly. I've done this before and have been doing zumba so I was hoping Level 1 would be easier - but no!! Oh well. I did it!! Good luck ladies!!

    please add me in as well. I planned on starting it today. I have not measured myself or checked my weight today. To be honest I was scared to get on the scale this morning after having birthday parties, etc going on over the last several weeks. I am kicking my diet off with the 48 juice diet. It really does work if you follow the instructions. It's not weight that you will keep off forever - mostly water but it gives you a great kick start.

    I will weigh in tomorrow for sure.

    I just got back from checking out an anytime fitness that is about 15 minutes from my work. It's $30 a month but at least I could go running and do some weights Monday - thru Friday. We'll see! I have a treadmill at home but by the time I get home it is so late and there is always the dinner, baths and homework to be done. By then I am too tired. I bring my shred video with me and and do it at work when I can.

    I have done it once (finished it) back in March. I noticed a huge difference in the way my jeans fit. Then summer came and life happens.... Time to start again

    Add me as a friend....

    Ok I want to do this also. Just saw the post now so hopefully I can get this done after all my daycare kids leave. Would be easier to do in the morning but my 10 mth old is up twice a night (from teething) and then usually up by 6am for the day. So it's hard to find alone time for me to start anything.
    I've bought the 30ds this summer and tried it once. It kicked my butt bec I'm not used to exercise.
    I'm hoping to get great motivation from you all :)!!

    Cant wait to start tomorrow!! Do any of you use Jillians protein shakes?

    I recommend the protein shakes by BSN, if you're going to add protein.

    Day 1 down for me! It was good. Intense. I have a HRM and it says I burned 300calories. I logged it under high intensity aerobics I think.

    I forgot to ask, we should set a weigh in date, and measurements, what do you all think about every 10 days ? Just weigh yourself on your regular days and then do one big weigh in the first 10 days, 2nd and 3rd??? any suggestions?

    Day 2 and I managed 3 1/2 lots of Jumping Jacks (only 2 yesterday) and the last lot of cardio, again. Put a little more effort into the strength and abs, yes and I'm feeling it!!!:tongue:
    I am really rubbish at the cardio and look forward to being able to do it, in it's entirety!!!!!:bigsmile:

    I'm jumping in here late. I decided to do it on my own for Nov, but doing it with a group is always better. I did a round of 30 days last in March 2009. Since then I've done the DVD off and on. Level 2 is my favorite.
