All the posts from bees inspired me to get the DVD and I just finished 30 Day Shred- Day 5. I’m doing Levels 2 and 3. I’ve also really cut out the bread for the past 1 1/2 weeks. Surprisingly, I’ve lost 3 pounds and my ab muscles are starting to see the light of day. I feel great! For now, I’m using water bottles as weights so not pushing myself too hard but I’m planning on getting the weights. Did anyone finish the 30 days- what were your results?

wow your only on day 5 and you’re already on levels 2 and 3! Good going! You must go to the gym regularly to be able to start at those levels. Keep up the great work! Its good to hear you are getting such great results already!

I would recommend that you get weights instead of jumping right to levels 2/3 – using heavier weights on level 1 is pretty effective, and using weights makes all of the levels much more effective – I now do all three levels, with 3 or 8 lb weights depending on the exercise.
I’ve been doing the shred since April, so for a more than 30 days, although I probably do it 3-4 times a week instead of every day. I’ve been a little discouraged, because the results are a little slower for me than for everybody else. I have finally started to see some increased definition in my upper body and in my abs, but I haven’t seen much difference in my weight – I had hoped this would get me past my plateau, but it hasn’t really. I love the workout though, and hope to move up to using heavier weights soon.

Well… I’ve been meaning to post an update on my "shredding" for a couple of days now. Turns out water bottles aren’t nearly as challenging as 5 lb. weights. I’m pretty comfortable at Level 2 right now but not sure how I feel about jumping jacks with weights-yikes! I can barely do the lunges! I have, however, changed my diet (less pasta and bread, more fruits and veggies) and been shredding for about three weeks and I’m seeing pretty good results. I’ve lost about 5 pounds and I’m seeing some nice toning. I still have a ways to go. Good thing I only have a month before this wedding! Hope you are all doing well and that we all stick with Jillian and her crazy/effective boot camp mentality!
