I have been reading a lot of blogs lately that are either Shredding or are going to start the Shred soon. My advice to those considering it is to go for it and my advice for those who have half-way started it is to keep going. You haven't seen anything until you get to Level 3! I weighed myself Saturday morning and I am down 10 pounds since May (without the GYM!). I am so excited. I did not want to lose weight super fast -- I have always been of the belief that consistent lifestyle changes are what get you to your goal and help you stay there. With my busy work and social schedule and travel almost every weekend, I do not have time any longer to dedicate 6 days a week to exercise -- I want to -- but, it is now more like 3 or 4. Because of this, I really have to watch what I eat, but I have still managed to see the scale creep lower and lower bit by bit. If I lose 5 more, I will be at the weight I was my freshman year of college. How crazy is that?! I would like to get there by Christmas, but we will see about that.
If you didn't get anything I said in that paragraph, please get this: I do highly recommend the Shred workout system. If completed up to 4 times a week (after the initial 30 straight days which I did complete) paired with 30 minutes of moderate running (a 50 min. workout in all), you should definitely see some changes happen. Sometimes it is a slow process, but one day you will put on your favorite pair of jeans like I did and go, "Wow! These fit great." Keep it up!
