Final Update: 90 Day Health & Fitness Challenge – P90X


Okay, the challenge is over and I am ready to post my results.  Before I do I want to remind you all of where I started from.  At 43 years old, I was not feeling good.  I had gained weight steadily since having Hanna almost 10 years ago.  I had tried so many diets and exercise plans and some would work for a bit, but overall I always gained the weight right back, plus some.  I was not athletic, energetic or healthy when I started following the P90X program 13 weeks ago.  Every night my ankles were swollen and I suffered from multiple aches and pains throughout my body.  I was not headed in a good direction!

Enter P90X:  I was scared to take on this program, because it looked so hard.  I was honestly intimidated!  BUT I wanted to make a change and I knew that if it was going to work, it would not be easy.  It wasn’t easy – it was really hard, but it feels so good to push your body and see what it can really do.  I feel so much stronger and healthier now!  I have energy, I am stronger than I ever remember being, my ankles never swell anymore, my body does not hurt (except for the occasional soreness from the workouts) anymore and I feel so much younger!

Okay, I know you want to see the numbers so here is my chart:

90 day measurements

In three months I lost 17.5 inches!  I have never been able to do that before and did it in a way that has made me healthier!  So here is my beginning shot and my final picture:

When I look at the final picture I still see all the things that are wrong :)  I was going to take the month of January off and do another workout that I will be reviewing in January, but I am already feeling like I am missing my P90X workouts.  The plan is to do the cardio workout in January and then the first of February start round 2 with P90X.  I am excited to try the classic version because I am totally loving the weight training part of the P90X program and the classic version has more than the lean program.  So everyone that wants to join me in February – let me know!  I am hoping for another 20 lbs with the second go around!

So here are my final thoughts: Does it work?  Absolutely!  I works far better than any program I have ever tried!  BUT it doesn’t  do it for you – you are the one that has to make the decision.  As Beachbody says:  Decide, Commit, Succeed!  If you make the decision, commit to the workouts and follow through, adjust your diet to eat healthy whole foods, you will succeed!

Buy It: The P90X program from Beachbody IS life changing!  This program no longer scares me and I now know that anyone with determination can complete this program!  You can purchase the complete P90X program from by clicking here for $119.85 + Shipping.

    You look great! I want to tell you how awesome I think it is that you did this program too! I’ve seen the infomercial more times than I care to admit and though it’s always intrigued me, it practically scares the bejeezus out of me too! :) Great job!

    Fantastic! You are going to LOVE the Classic program. You will probably drop more than 20. You’re right, it is hard, it is challenging, but sooooo worth it in the end. Congratulations and keep pushing play! Bring It!!!

  7. Mike Stickel says:

    Great work Dawn! You’ve done an amazing job. Hopefully you’ll write a followup post after doing the classic routine (you’re results will be astounding I’m sure). :)

    @jengd: P90X scares the bejeezus out of most people. You can either go for it or start with something a little less scary like Power 90.

    I came across the P90X system from a different website, the fitness programenhancements are a great addition! Overall I would give the system a 4/5; only because they are missing some minor fitness planfeatures which can be found on the web if you do a search; visit for enhanced videos, fitness plan tutorials, tips and more!

    Thanks for your community contribution, I appreciate it 😀
