Welcome to my P90X Results. This page about me is not to brag, it’s to show you my struggles and opportunities. I hope that it helps people out there looking for an answer to fitness like I so desperately needed to do in 2010.
I had enough. After moving to Florida in January of 2007 I let my life become a buffet of bad eating choices. Well, actually it started in College.
Ah yes, College. Where we all go to get smart and end up being stupid. For me it was the freedom to make my own choices. No more telling me when I had to wake up. No more telling me what I had to eat. No more curfews. No more watchful eyes.
For dinner I would put down a cheeseburger or two, curly fries, and ALWAYS (yes, always) enjoyed the College dining rooms assortments of cakes each night. Wow I can have cake every night!
Little did I know it was going to cost me.
These bad decisions followed me and my wife to Florida when we moved here in January 2007. We had Pizza, Wings, and Beer every Friday night. Along with the stress and strains of my first “real” job and these bad eating habits, I looked like that guy in the picture on the right hand side of the page…
The First Struggle: Trying to Lose Weight
So I knew it was time to change. From 2008-2010 I tried just about everything. I dieted (whatever that “really” means…salads?). I even tried to go to the Gym. God I hated the Gym. The meat-heads that throw the weights and the chicks running 5 miles in 2 minutes on the treadmills. I felt judged. It didn’t work for me.
I knew I had to do something! I lost my father way too early due to Cancer. I had a family on my mind. I knew I wanted to do ANYTHING POSSIBLE to
Then I decided to try a DVD workout. That got old quick too. It was a series of 2 discs, “Basic” and “Advanced”. It was the same old mundane moves and jokes day after day. Forget it.
Guess how much weight I lost? 10 pounds.
I was not going to get anywhere with this life. It was time to try and find a real program. Here is what was my ideal fitness weight loss program idea:
- One that I could eat as many donuts as I want and lose weight and get ripped!
Well, that didn’t work. And it never will. So I guess that is scratched from the list. How about this one?
- A program I could do at my house
- A program that wasn’t boring like the DVDs I originally got that repeated day after day
- A program that had proven success stories
- A community that I could steal ideas from
- Something I would like and actually not dread and want to kill myself thinking about each day.
That answer? P90X
The Second Chance: My P90X Results
I decided to use my Wii Fit (no, not for working out…) to measure my weight through the journey. You can see in the beginning of the graph below that I had slight wins and losses before I started P90X.
Then, P90X begins, check out that weight loss!
So here are my P90X Results, here are a few things you should know too (and I’m sure some people will want to know).
Did I get RIPPED with my P90X Results?
Absolutely Not. WHY? Because my goal was just to lose weight. At the time I wasn’t interested in abs and muscles. I just wanted to have a flatter stomach and look like a tall, lean, healthy dude.
If your goal is to get RIPPED with P90X, then you’ll want to use my ripped suggestions. These strategies helped me get ripped with Focus T25, which is only a 25 minute workout. It’s all in what you eat, folks.
Did I follow the Diet Plan to achieve my P90X Results?
Not like I should have. I ate “healthy”. Let’s face it, when you eat healthy you lose weight, but you don’t get toned and ripped (or “sexy slim”). I did this LATER in my fitness career after I studied nutrition very close. But as for the year 2010, I just wanted to be slim again.
