I didn't measure my body fat% before (or yet).
I didn't really follow the nutrition plan (other than some portion control) which no doubt affected my measurement results, but I feel like I improved my cardio and strength quite a bit. I'm glad it was only 2 months, because I was kind of getting bored with it. It did give results and I'll probably use some of the circuit training DVDs once or twice a week in addition to the running I'd like to do. I'll also probably go through it again next January as I find that these DVDs are good excercise routines to do during the winter months. I just can't do these programs when it is so nice outside.
Also, it took until the LAST workout to finally go through the MAX Cardio Conditioning with virtually no break so don't sweat it if you are taking breaks. The fit test is actually maybe one of the toughests workouts, probably because you are busting ass to try and beat your previous best. There's a lesson there maybe.
Anyway, that's my experience. Time for the T-shirt.
That's pretty good results. The waistline thing shows you're firming up a lot, probably more than is shown by just looking at weight. From my experience with these things the body has kind of a lag effect, and you should be poised to lose a lot of weight if you follow any kind of diet and normal exercise routine now.
I met some dude at a party last night who said he lost 55 lbs in 6 months on insanity.
