    My name is Christina, I’m 24 years old and from Buffalo, NY. I’ve been on MFP since January 2011, and in April 2011 I got engaged to my boyfriend of 6 years. Since joining MFP I’ve lost 49.8lbs, and I’ve done 2 rounds of 30DS and 1 complete round of RI30. I also do all of her other dvd’s pretty regularly :)

    After buying a house at the beginning of November, I kind of fell off the wagon eating and exercise wise. I stopped logging and even skipped working out for almost 2 weeks straight. I decided today to get back at it full force :) logging no matter what, and exercising like I used to. I’m currently in the middle of Supreme 90, but I am so excited for Jillian’s new DVD. I also preordered it off Amazon, and I think starting this challenge just after the New Year will be great!! Can’t wait to get started with all of you :) and I look forward to encouraging and supporting each other along the way!

    Hi everyone! I'm Amy, 37 - from New York State. Mom of 3 (5,7,9) + 2 dogs & you can throw hubby in there too!

    I've got a crazy busy schedule (like most of you, I'm sure) - and know I have to put my health as a priority.

    I'm 5'8" and I've been bouncing between 190-198 for the past month. (prior to Thanksgiving I had hit the 20# loss mark on MFP & need to reclaim that).

    I love Jillian - I used to belong to her online forum, but dropped to help out the budget.

    Can't wait to start out the year strong with a fabulous challenge & wonderful group for motivation!!

    Hugs,
    Amy :)

    HI, I am interested in joining in this challenge as well :) My name is Jennifer,31, and I currently live in California.

    I have done the Shred 3x with barely any results just 2" :( Ripped in 30 2x with no results, finished her Killer Buns with 1" loss and done some of her over dvds as well and yet super excited to get her new dvd :P I am not getting results with Jillian but I love her, I enjoy the workouts. I haven't preordered cause the last time I did it didn't come in the mail til a week after it was released so I will take my chances with getting it in the stores, so Jan 2 will hopefully be perfect.

    I am currently going into week 3 of P90X so will not be finished with it when we start but hopefully can manage both (we'll see). The 3-4 days sounds awesome considering it is a 45 minute workout. I am taking a break from Jillian cause I think my body is too use to it. I LOVE planks btw <3

    I am having a slow go with weight loss, not plateaued but losing like .2-.4 lbs a week but then finally 1 lb one week. I keep thinking it prolly mainly due to diet cause I am a super picky eater. I usually workout 5-7 days a week.
  • Hi, I'm Sophie. I've just finished Ripped in 30 and will be taking on Killer Buns and Thighs in december. Can't wait to carry on with Jillian in the new year while being supported by all of you awesome girls! Bring it on!!

    Hi! My name is Elizabeth. I currently live in MN. I am a stay at home mom of two kidos. Alex is 2 and my little man is a yr old and I am fulltime college student. Finding the time to do anything these days is an interesting task. I believe that if I am involved with a fabulous group of fat burning machines then just maybe I can kick these extra 20lbs of baby weight to the curb.

    Im excited to feel the burn and get this weight loss back on track. I HATE Jillian. I find myself frequently saying horrible things to my TV when she’s on it.(even random commercials). One time I actually think she turned and gave me an evil look and added a set to the routine. Then she yelled at me for doing the beginners version even though she’s the one that provided it in the first place!!

    I know we can do this. if we stick together there are no limits to our success!!!

    Rock on Hawt Candy Azzes!!!

    I believe that is referred to as "the stink eye" and I wouldn't doubt one bit she fired it at you - it's like she's psychic...devil ***** that she is! ;-)

    Looks like we have more people joining us so just thought I'd pull this thread back to the top! :)

    WELCOME! Tell us a little about you!
  • Hello :) My name is Elizabeth, Ellie for short, and I'm 19 years old. I've been overweight since I was a kid, because of my family issues, and have decided that the controlling person who was behind all of it, is semi out of my life.

    I've never tried anything from Jillian, and I know how tough she was on the Biggest Loser. So, I'm interested to see how this will go.

    Since September-October, to date, I have lost 23 pounds. I went from 217 to 194, Sizes 18-20 to 16's. I can fit into 14's but I can't button them! :(
    I make no plans on eating junk during the holidays. I workout a LOT, dance to Just Dance games, sit-ups, crunches, lunges, exercise bike.... and now I've hit a plateau.

    So far, I'm happy enough to have lost 23 pounds. The most I've ever lost is 5. By March (my birthday), I'd love to lose 20-30 more pounds.

    I hate being frustrated and discouraged when I can't seem to be able to lose the weight, which is why I've gained a lot over the years.

    So, I really need a good swift kick in the butt, and to lose more and get more fit. I love being on MFP, and have become obsessed with tracking my foods and exercise.

    Glad to meet all of you!!

    Hey my name is Nikki and I just joined MFP about two days ago. I have a hard time exercising and watching what I eat so once I heard about MFP I jumped to sign up. And so far, MFP has helped to keep me motivated.

    I am 19 and from North Carolina. I am engaged to a great man and we have a 2 month old son together. I recently decided that I would not go back to work and would just be a stay at home mom. So far, I love it and all the free time I have. I currently am going to college online through University of Phoenix.

    I am aiming for my pre pregnancy weight by summertime and want to lose about 45 lbs.

    I am so excited to start this challenege. It is just what I need to stay focused and motivated! I ordered about three different Jillian DVDs last week. I am ready to work my butt off and lose this weight!

    Hi I'm summer. I've been a bum lately and haven't been online much. I've just been so busy I don't have time to log on anymore! I done all of her videos and love all of them. Lately I haven't been doing them and just been running. Which I am totally addicted to. I have the last 15lbs to lose and hoping that this video will help!

    I'm 23, have two girls. 2 yr old and a 1 yr old. (she turns 1 on Saturday!) The day I had her I weighed in at 210lb. I am now at 155. So I'm very happy with my results for the year.
