Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Before & After Pictures-P90X-Round One

Okay, so...I figured it up and it ended up taking quite a bit more than 90 days for us to complete this program. We started on April 28, 2008 and ended on August 21, 2008. I ONLY counted the days we actually did the work outs...which is why it took longer.
As for the pictures and our results...I am disappointed. I mean, we definitely made some progress...but nothing like we had anticipated. However, we also did not do the program nearly as strictly as we had planned either.
In all...Matt lost 26 pounds. He started at 200 lbs. and is now at 174. I lost 12 pounds. I started at 147 and am currently at 135.
We can NOT find our "before" measurements...but I am going to take our "after" measurements tonight.
I also do NOT like what we chose to wear for these pics. That bikini is not very flattering and those shorts are way too long and frumpy for Matt. Next time we will wear something a little better.'s a hint to you girls who have a hard time bathing suit shopping: Even though a larger panel on the bottom covers really should look for something that is in the V shape and not the boy-short look unless you are super dooper tiny and shapely. The V shape gives you a waist and legs...but the flat panel across your butt and tummy just makes you look wide and shapeless. I figured that out AFTER I bought this ridiculously expensive suit...but from now on, the rest will be the kind with skinny strings or ties at the sides (hips).
BTW: In the title of this post I said "Round One" because we are starting the program again today!!! (together!!) HOORAY! I am really ready to do it again and be looking even better by Thanksgiving!! I come!!! Matt's not wanting to lose any more weight but his hopes are that by the end of the program this time, he'll be a lot more cut and defined in his abs, back and arms.

Oh and one final disclaimer: We both look awful in these pictures! The "before" pictures wer right after we had gotten out of the pool and we were all wet. The "after" pictures were taken after our work out (my 3rd one of the day) and we were all sweaty and gross. ICK! Next time I will definitely fix my hair and do my make up AT LEAST for the "after" pictures! ha ha

I am more motivated now that I see the more result of P90x. I think I will continue using this product until I can have a great figure same as yours.

Have you made any progress since your first round of p90x was completed? When I stopped p90x I really cut back on exercise and lost a lot of my gains. Now I am about to restart with p90x2. Hopefully I have the motivation to stick to it.
