This round, I'm only into it for a week. I've lost 3 pounds. I AM doing Insanity 6 days a week though. Once the Insanity program is over, I'll start running for a couple of months and then start Insanity all over again. But with just running last year and counting calories, I lost 9 pounds, but I didn't stick to it in order to reach my 25 weight loss goal.
