Karen’s P90X Results Story
“I realized once I hit 50 years old that I felt old, out of shape and exhausted all the time. I also realized I was exactly the same age as my father when he died suddenly of a heart attack. I was 24 with one child and my dad was gone. I have one granddaughter, six children and an adoring husband who was equally disgusted with what we had become physically. We decided it was time to do something about it and discovered P90X. We dedicated ourselves for 90 days, followed the nutrition plan, pushed play every day and were amazed at the results that we got.
The first month was the hardest… I was in terrible shape and couldn’t even do the jumping jacks all the way through. I was VERY sore… so I decided to use the P90X Recovery Drink. What a huge difference that made. My muscles were less sore and I felt like I was renewed after drinking it. I also found it hard to get my mid-morning snack at work… so I started using the beachbody protein bars. Not only did they taste good, but they curbed my appetite and helped me push through till lunch. They are also portable… I don’t sit at a desk, so having something to put in my pocket is an added bonus. After about 5 weeks I felt like my progress had stalled. I searched the beachbody message boards and found that many people were using this drink called Shakeology. So I gave it a try! I was humbled and amazed at the difference it made in my transformation. Not only did I lose another 5 pounds, but my energy level SOARED! I felt like I was in my 20’s again. I have even been able to give up my daily vitamins. It meets so many needs (including curbing my appetite and satisfying my craving for chocolate.
I’m 5’3″ with a small frame and lost 10.5 pounds and a total of 12.5 inches (3 from my hips alone!). My biggest gain? Self confidence and the knowledge that I am healthier, happier, more confident, and have a ton more energy! My stomach is flat again and I’m fitting into my size 6 pants (down from a size 10). I can wear clothes now that I haven’t worn in years… it was fun “going shopping” in my “old clothes boxes”… but even more fun buying new clothes! I love my new life and will continue for the rest of my life. I enjoy the new challenges that other beachbody programs offer and will keep pushing play!”
