P90X - No weight lost?
I did first three weeks and saw no changes - was discouraged and lost focus - did first day of week 4 and then nothing for the rest of the week. I am now starting week 4 over this week and hoping I haven't undone the first 3 weeks work as I have yet to see any real changes... I know the website said give it 30 days before you "see" anything but I may have to wait longer so hang in there and don't give up!!

Trying to stay focus and having good buddies would be nice
That's what is so great about this sight - everyone is sharing a common goal with no preconceived notions about each other - we all want to get healthy, lose weight, feel good about ourselves... I read all your journals and I see a lot of myself in them. So many of us are moms, dads, working, taking care of others, and trying to make time for ourselves at the end of the day. I know I'm not going to put myself in front of everyone else - wouldn't want to - but I'm trying to put myself on the same level as other priorities - and it hasn't been as hard as I thought - I can find pieces of time in the day for exercise - just have to be a little creative!!

FYI- Healthy Choice Steamers
Oh no... I have been trusting the counts on the food diary - not even checking - guess I better double check - thanks for pointing that out!

Flustrated with weight loss
I would check with your doctor - they should be able to answer that one.
