I'm not giving up here by a long shot! I'm just making squats my alternate-day workout when I'm not doing simplefit. I'm loving having a workout to do each evening. (which is incredible given that I have ALWAYS hated exercise. but this stuff is short and sweet enough that I can just push through and...

oh man, level 2, day 1 kinda kicked my butt. I had to quit at about 13 minutes in, at 12 rounds. don't know if it was the heat or trying too hard to rush back and forth from under the bar (it's about hip height on my very short frame), or an alergen teasing at my asthma but I could barely breathe.

healthy weight loss is generally 1-2 lbs a week after the first week (many people will lose 4-6 lbs of water weight the first week they start eating better).
if you eat ABOUT 1 gram of protein per of lean body mass, and work out, you should be able to maintain your muscle mass.
