Greenjumper, thank you for the encouragement. I'm in the healthcare field so I (should) know all this stuff, it's just hard when it's you! I did take measurements before I started, but it's so hard to get consistent measurements. Based on what I saw today, I lost a little on waist and hip measures, but I'm not convinced.

I guess I should have researched the video more thoroughly-- it would have made me feel better to know that the results are usually in inches lost, not weight lost.

I need to lose ~35 pounds total, so I guess I'm just being impatient with my progress.

I'm trying to go by how I look, how I feel, and how my clothes fit. I've had a real battle with the scale and I always want to see 3lbs lost in a week and that just doesn't happen and then I end up feeling like I let myself down.

Green jumper, what app are you using? Is it a C25K specific app? It sounds like it could be helpful.

You all are making me interested in other workout DVDs by the monster, err I mean Jillian

I was thinking to do a 60 day shred, with 20 days at each level but now hmmm.. Maybe I'll stick to the 60 plan then looked into ripped or another?!

App Store - C25K

The app is really helpful! I love that I can use it and play my music or my audio books at the same time. There's an 8 week program in this app but I think I'm going to do every week twice before I move onto the next week.

If any of you all want to try the C25K thing I can make a thread
