My friend followed it properly and she lost 8lbs in the first month and 10 in the second. The results were amazing! she now has a 6 pack! im pigging out on chocolate this weekend as youre not allowed any refined carbs on the eating plan in the 9 weeks you do the program. So nervous after watching all the dvds! Each ome is 40 mins long. so 40 mins for 6 days a week! its madness! xx

That's one thing thats worrying me as its 40 mins a day isnt it? Im going to do the fitness test and see how I get on and just take each day as it comes and I'll just stop if it gets too much. I used to go zumba twice a week and body conditioning once a week before I fell pregnant, each clasd was an hour but tbf I did have a day off in between each day whereas insanity is daily Shocked

have you done it? how did you find it? xx

I definitely agree here! You should wait for a while longer because I don't think it's a good idea to be doing this right after you have a baby! Just my advice. Best of luck!

Just out of curiosity why do they tell you to wait so long before excercising? im on day 2 of insanity and apart from feeling a little achey I feel fine..

I thought when midwives told people to wait it was just propaganda Question xx

I think its the risk of haemorrhaging!!
I dont know about you but after my section i bled for up to 10 weeks and every time i did something such as pick washing off the floor, etc i would bleed even more and have to go and sit back down! (obviously not by the 10 week point but definitely at 4 weeks)
Just be very careful!

I think part of it is because your abdominal muscles can split whilst you're pregnant and you have to allow them time to return to normal as well as letting your body physically recover and coping with blood loss etc. xx

Also if your breastfeeding you need to make sure the diets suitable and won't effect your milk supply.

I would not have had the energy for something like that so respect to you for that. I got told six weeks for exercise and 3 months for sit ups etc. As it was I didn't do much for about 8 months as was too bloody knackered.

I would wait until 6 weeks at least as well. I started around 4 doing the 30 day shred after having Alice, whereas I'd never bothered doing much exercise after having Kieran and Adam, and my stomach muscles are completely messed up. I am probably lighter now than my pre pregnancy weight but my stomach muscles have never settled so have to wear fat knickers to pull them in :/ I think I started too early. As for doing Insanity.. not a chance hah.
