Taking control of my health

Since my Lupus diagnosis and the regime of medications that I am on I have allowed 20 pounds to find their way to my ass and my gut and I am finally taking control of my weight and my health. To date I have lost 10 of those unwanted pounds and now I am looking at taking my health to the next extreme with P90X.

My brother in law bought this program about one month ago now and after the first week on the program he called me to tell me that he lost 10 pounds the first week!!! I asked how my sister in law was doing on it and she had not lost weight but she lost 2 inches off her waist!!! I was sold! If they could do it then so could I.

So, I visited the Beachbody website and ordered up the program. I just couldn't wait... I mean my brother and sister in law were already building their strength and I was lagging behind. Unfortunately for me the shippment was held up in Toronto for more than a week! Finally I got the program today and I am ready to use it. Before you can use the program you have to take a fit test, here are my results:

Pull ups: 1
Push ups: 20 (on my knees)
Lateral jump: 10.25 inches
In and Outs: 30
Chair squats: 1 min and barely!!

I just pass the Fit Test and I am eager to start ... tomorrow!
