If I can get to my goal weight and start feeling somewhat healthy again, I'm actually considering trying something like P90X. However, I'm curious, is there anyone on the boards who has tried this and is also almost 40? I don't want to spend the money on something like this if there's no way I'm actually going to be able to do the workout. Please let me know your experiences so I can make an informed decision. Thanks.
Well, I'm 38 and just got the P90X materials a few weeks ago from a friend. I haven't tried it yet, but do have friends that swear by it (around a similar age). Like anything, it just requires you to start and stick with it. Despite a New Year's resolution to lose 10-15 pounds by the Summer, I have yet to dedicate any time to working out this year. I have been trying to avoid soda outside of eating out once in a while and very long afternoons at work. Just that shift to more water/less soda (and always taking the stairs at work) has knocked about 5lbs off since the start of the year. That's what I'm attributing it to anyway - maybe I'm jsut shrinking in my old age.
Will try to let you know how P90X works for me if I can ever get going on it.
