Welcome

Hi everyone! I just created this community because I love Denise Austin and there are no communities on Live Journal where we can discuss her workouts and compare results. This webpage will be a forum for everyone to post how their personal weight loss is coming along with Denise's help, or if you just need advice or inspiration.
I myself, am 5'4 and I weight 140 pounds. I would like to lose 20 pounds by this summer. My goal is to eat as healthy as possible and workout everyday to Denise's Fit & Lite, and Daily Workout on Lifetime. I did this 3 years ago when I was 20 and I saw results within a month, so I am confident I can do it again.

Wow, I just found this community! I love Denise Austin's workouts! Don't know what I'd do without her! I've been doing her program since '96.
Hey, sorry it took me so long to reply to you. I haven't had a computer at my new place and I didn't think anyone was interested in the Denise community because no one ever wrote it in. So tell me how often you work out with Denise? Im curious to hear how she works for you.

I work out with Denise 5 days a week. She has totally worked for me, I am able to workout and not have to think so to speak (especially helpful during the toning segment.) Since she times everything I can concentrate on form and quality rather than worry how many more sets I have to do or how many I've already done. And she mixes it up so I get a taste of all kinds of different things like yoga and Pilates, which is great considering I can't afford a gym.

How about you? How often do you workout with her and how long have you been doing it?
I've been working out with her for 4 years now... on and off though. After I have been working out for a month with her I usually switch to something more challenging, but I see the best results with her, so this time Im going to just stick with her. Right now I am working out 5 days a week, but Im going to start doing it everyday because on the days I don't work out, I tend to eat a lot. So how much weight have you lost and how long did it take? Do you just do half an hour a day?
Well, I never had any weight to lose, I actually started because I wanted to get in shape, healthy and I really like to workout. In fact when I started I was 107 and after a year I was 112 (do to the muscle gain), where I have stayed steady since then. Before I started I really had no muscle tone at all. I'd say it only took a short time, maybe a few weeks to see results but the big results came after about a year and as I kept progressing with the workouts I saw even better results in another year. I started out at a half hour then I added in extra cardio, then they started playing the Fit & Lite so I do the hour with extras thrown in, like a bike ride, jogging, more interval training, just stuff to keep it exciting and mix it up. I know it gets a little boring doing the -same- thing every day but it's worth it. Also, a trainer once told me that only 3 weeks of inactivity can undo 6 months of work! (I didn't believe her until I got really sick last year and couldn't work out for 2 months. It took a little while to get back to the fitness level I was at before that.) Now I'm rambling! :) But good luck :)
