I actually just started the Insanity program. I can't keep up with it right now, but I'm getting better at it. I'm still in week one. I started at 237 lbs. I'll let you know the results as I go.

I just finished 180 days of P90X -- did the "lean" program, took two weeks off, then started on the "classic" program. After four weeks on the classic, I felt that it was a little too easy, so I switched to the "doubles" program week 5 (classic and doubles are identical the first four weeks). Needless to say, P90X doubles is a @$$-kicker -- proud to say I finished it, but REALLY glad to be done. FWIW, I'm 46 and haven't been in this kind of shape since my early 20's.
As far as results, this time a year ago I was in terrible shape -- at least 50 lbs overweight and probably couldn't run 1/2 a mile. I knew I wasn't in any condition to start P90X, so I started Power-90 instead. After that I rolled into the Power-90 Master Series, then did P90X Lean, followed by P90X Doubles. So, a year later I'm 65lbs lighter, running 5+ miles 3x a week, and starting to train for a 1/2 marathon.
So, IMHO, yes, P90X works, but only if you do it. Also, be realistic -- if you're really out of shape (like I was), you may want to start with something a bit easier.

Good luck,

You need to post a pic of yourself because you are definitely someone I don't want to tick off in the future. I wish I had that kind of dedication.

Bobcat -- I think you've found the key. I haven't done Insanity yet, but from what I've read NOBODY, and that includes Shaun T, keeps up with the workout. The secret is to do a little more every time -- if you only kept up for 30 sec last workout, push for 35 sec next time. It's amazing how quickly those 5 seconds will add up.
But the real secret is KEEP AT IT. The workouts only work if you do them.

I'm 56 and did P90X and P90X II but it took me longer than 90 days each. I will say that it kicks butt but you will get results and definately get stronger. I enjoyed II better than one but they are both very good programs. You'll burn more calories but you have to diet some too to lose weight because you will gain muscle and lose fat so the scales don't change much but the fitness will. The streching and yoga are very beneficial as you age too to keep you moving. It does work cause it might be the hardest workout you've ever done.

I know a few people that have done it and it works if you actually do it. I am about to start it.

My wife, in her mid-40's has done the P90x stuff for about 1.5 years. She is in excellent shape. You have to be dedicated.

I tried it, and it dang near killed me. My knees would not allow me to get through much of it. I ended up going on the Adkins diet and loosing about 25 lbs the "lazy way" ..
