I just wanted to post because I started TurboFire yesterday and loved it SO much. I loved the feeling I used to get teaching aerobics, and also just being at weight loss camp when I was a kid, being in a group with other people who are just happy to be moving around and getting healthier, who aren't looking at you and thinking "Was that a jiggle?" And I didn't think a video would be able to re-create that feeling, but TurboFire definitely does. I'm thrilled because it is really expensive, and I didn't want all that money to go down the drain by watching it and finding out it wasn't for me, but that didn't happen. Lisa (Beaching It), cover your ears: I like it better than ZUMBA!!! I know, who'd of thought.
DH said that even if doing an intense workout program does not cause me to lose weight, which is something I really can't control right now, it is GUARANTEED to improve my cardiovascular system. He wants me to focus on health rather than weight, which is entirely rational (yet still pretty hard). It's not that I'm shallow, PLEASE!! It's just that I've been focused on weight for SO LONG, even after cancer it feels a little phony to say I don't care about it any more, all I care about is health. I care about my health, trust me, but I also care about enjoying the look and feel of my body. I miss that feeling of "slipping on" my favorite Size 14 jeans. The feeling of looking through my closet and knowing I'll like the way I look in anything I pluck off the hangers. I know it's in my future somewhere, I'm just an impatient person. So in the meantime, it's good to be able to focus on the fact that I actually LOVE working out this way and that I'll do it 6 days a week. That WILL make me healthier, and it WILL give me more muscle.
