Classic will do more for you than Lean. No exceptions!
You seem to be missing that your body will not only burn more calories with more muscle mass, it burns more calories during the recovery period that runs 24 – 48 hours after exercise than doing a bunch of cardio. Fat around the waist is particularly responsive to intense weightlifting routines. You’ve not been doing intense weightlifting with your legs and just working out the lower half of your body isn’t enough. The best transformations, men or women, have all been on Classic. I get that you have some muscle in your legs but obviously it has not been enough to burn off calories for you. Secondly, you are also missing that that additional muscle you build on your upper body will make you look better as you work on reducing your belly fat.
My husband had quite a belly on him when he started P90X. No he has a bad back and a bum knee and for the first 3 weeks he only did the resistance workouts. Then he slowly added the cardio for the remainder of the 90 days. But here’s the thing I want to get across to you about his transformation. He made a ton of progress in the first month without doing any cardio. Moreover, after he finished the first 90 days, he was burning fat so effectively he dropped cardio completely and now does only resistance training. He dropped another 15lbs doing that (after losing 30lbs in the first 90 days) and is leaner and more ripped than ever. At 53, he’s got a 30″ waist! Weightlifting burns more fat than cardio ever will!

You do need to fix what you refer to as eating ‘horribly’. Nutrisystem is a way to manage calories but you won’t get enough protein from it. Please read my article at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/?p=2105 or a bigger discussion of how many calories and how you need to portion it from a macronutrient basis (carbs/protein/fat). You will need a high quality protein powder. I have a list of what I recommend at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/members/forum/#topic/Protein-Powders.htm.
