If I can find my dvd, which I saw the other day. I will smile

mellowcat Sun 30-Dec-12 19:01:05

I'm in, hate 2nd stage though but quite liked 1st and 3rd.

bettydavis Sun 30-Dec-12 19:01:17

DelilahBelle, I started yesterday too. Didn't hurt yesterday at all but after this mornings session my thighs are killing me, walking up the stairs is pure agony. Have put on 2.5 inches on my hips since July angry

Yay , I knew my wed plan was a good one , tues will be too painful and I don't want to give up too soon .

I gave up smoking in Oct .... Round of applause for me ..... So getting fit and listening to scary gillian should be ok .

Wibble ...

Count me in. I made them terrible mistake of standing in a set of scales at a friends house tuesday. Eleven fucking stone. I am only five foot one. I dont look liked the side of a house but I do look round and flabby. This has genuinely depressed me and I am currently flooded with self loathing. Also turned forty this year and want to be fab, not old fat and hairy sad sigh

travellingwilbury Sun 30-Dec-12 19:07:53

Sausage , if it makes you feel any better , eleven stone would be perfect for me .

Kveta Sun 30-Dec-12 19:12:41

I think I'm in too, if I can find the disc. Breastfeeding is not helping me shift any weight, nor is running around after a toddler, so need extra exercise. I will start Wednesday though, too much yummy food to eat before then!

wem Sun 30-Dec-12 19:19:15

I just searched for dance classes as another potential bit of exercise. I found something I liked the look of, but there was small print that said, "Please note: dance is a physically strenuous exercise, please take responsibility for being fit to take part", which is quite scary, so definitely need to get the Shred going first.

I'm up for starting tomorrow, the more I can get done before DH goes back to work, the more likely I'm to keep going once I have to fit it in around dc.

chicaguapa Sun 30-Dec-12 19:20:27

I'm in too. I did it in August before I went on holiday and it was marvellous. Came back all motivated, upgraded to Ripped in 30, hated it and fell off the JM wagon. I've been trying to get back on ever since.

Either Tuesday or Wednesday is ok with me to start. I have new exercise wear and hand weights too. grin

poachedeggs Sun 30-Dec-12 19:25:35

I only every used tins of tomatoes or bottles of olive oil as weights. Perhaps I need to invest.

RyleDup Sun 30-Dec-12 19:29:19

Yes, I will. Need to do something. I'll get the disc out of its wrapping. Wednesday start?

I might be in (need to check I'm physically able to do it, as I've been ill since the spring, but we now think it's asthma following numerous chest infections, and not scary lung disease, so no reason why I shouldn't be allowed to Shred). I have hand weights as well, although may not fit into any exercise clothes sad.

Will do one day before committing fully I think.

Worley Sun 30-Dec-12 19:37:22

I had planned to start this Tuesday.. done before and it is excellent.. a killer but works..
just need to stop wheezing by Tuesday.. been ill this week..
this time I will remember to measure my self before I start it too..

I have had the disc on my shelf for some time now intending to do it. Read lots of comments which scared me off. How fit do you need to be to be able to do it without dying?

poncyettia Sun 30-Dec-12 19:45:55

I'll join you all BUT I am not starting until next Monday (7th) as there is no way I'm gonna do it while the dcs are off school. I also need another week to get over this chest infection no excuses then

Will measure myself on Wednesday though to keep you all company grin

Are we gonna post starting measurements or would a weekly inch lost be better all round?

FromEsme Sun 30-Dec-12 19:48:20

Yes I'm in. I started shredding but gave up due to illness.

I am thin, I just have no muscles and I am so unfit, it's ridiculous.

sausagerolemodel Sun 30-Dec-12 19:48:36

Thanks travelling. Geri.Halliwell is my height and is about 7 stone. I look a bit rounded anything over 8 and a half but didn't realise I had slipped this far. Might get myself one of those monitor gadgetty things too. The ones that monitor your movement. Hold on must find link....

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 30-Dec-12 19:52:25

I am a proper fat bastard at the moment. Can I not do it on kickboxing days?

Tabbykat Sun 30-Dec-12 19:54:03

Count me in. Did it last year and really noticed a difference - somebody even said I looked leaner! shock However have had total lapse and am disgracefully now up to my pregnancy weight, despite it being over three years since I last gave birth. It hurts, but it really is worth it.

ReturnToPlanetVenus Sun 30-Dec-12 19:54:11

I'm in - bought this during my last pregnancy and have watched it from the comfort of my sofa a number of times over the last 2 years so that I'll know what to do when I start grin.

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 30-Dec-12 19:56:33

I have started a number of times but never passed level 1, to my shame.
