Default Slim in 6?

Hey guys I saw an infomercial for si6 the other day and now im thinking about buying it off of amazon. I was just wondering if any of you have done it and how did you like it,? What were your results with it as well. Im not expecting to lose tons of weight the first time doing it but im planning to do the entire program at least 2 1/2 -3 times before I move back home. I just hope to get smaller and toned at least a little with this. Im not going to worry so much about the weight but more the inches and how my clothes are fitting . Also is it true that if you're over weight you lose more weight in the begining with this?
Thanks ladies

I did Slim in 6 a few years back.. and I actually did lose weight on it. The workouts were really good! Don't remember how much I lost, but I do remember laying on the ground and being able to feel my hip bones, haha...

Onederchic- thank you some much for the links they did help .

Pita09- haha watching the infomercial made me want to work out but I was already jn bed so I decided not to.

Bbee- that's awesome . Im looking for a work out that will kick my butt hard and make my hipbones stick out when I stand up haha.


Also this is totally random but I stopped drinking soda a few weeks ago and last night I had one glass because I wanted a taste and it made me sick! I felt ill for a good hour or so and my goodness it was terrible. Has that happen to anyone else before? I am now swearing of soda for good (hopefully) although I do enjoy the fizz and flavor its just so bad for you haha. I am now loving water.

Hey! I actually just took the plunge and bought the system off of ebay after seeing the infomercials. I have a friend who has had GREAT success with P90x, manufactured by the same company, BeachBody. I looked on ebay and they had some deals, so I went for it.

I just got it yesterday and started today so I can't say what long term results may be, but I tell you what it BURNS!!! In the good way of course...or at least the helpful way. Obviously the key is to stick with it, and I'm strictly watching what I'm eating so there's that.

I've already tried the first 2 workouts, Start It Up and Ramp It Up, though you're not supposed to move on for a few days. I could handle it, but barely. I loved the challenge though! They do yoga to cool down too, which I enjoyed. JerseyGyrl is right though, if you have knee issues I wouldn't recommend. I don't, so it wasn't a problem, but there are a lot of squats!

Good luck! Hope this helped :-)

So my friend has been doing it for about 4 weeks now and I can't see any difference at all. She doesn't seem to either.

I've looked up the videos on you tube and I did the "start up" workout and it definitely makes your legs burn, just like a previous gal said, lots of lunges and squats ! But just look up the videos on youtube before spending that money !
