Weigh in!

It's day 1 of the new comp and why am I SOOO excited? Well.. 2 days ago I did my "sample pics" and I weighed in 3 lbs heavier. I was kind of feeling sorry for myself but weighing myself today made me realize that I didn't actually gain 5 lbs!! 2 just sounds much better. BRIEF EXPLANATION: I have an IUD which makes me generally not have periods so when I have them.. I don't really know what to do with myself or how to deal with the bloating and blah blah blah and I happened to have my first one in a while this week. Anyway.. yay!! I only gained 2 lbs during the holidays. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;o)

And here are my P90X before pics!!! They actually tell you to take these 6 poses. Promise I wasn't just having a bikini photo session in my basement! ;o) I'm just going to say that when I looked at the pics after the fact I realized that they weren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be. I even mentioned to my husband that they really weren't scary and he said "were they supposed to be?" and I was like YeS!! Holy geeze it's ME in a frickin' BIKINI... he just rolled his eyes and said " and you say you don't need a boob job!" Poor guy is a boob man and well... notice the lack of cleavage in this size SMALL bikini! Oy!!

I cant wait to see your after pictures. Id love to have the body that you have now ( I will soon ). But P90X is such a great program and with how dedicated you are the results will be amazing! I cant wait. I really think that you should do something like this for a living. You are a great motivator!

LOVE the pics! you ROCK that bikini! WTG! Congrats on your starting weight!!!!! that's awesome!

p.s. how do you create your before & after pics! they always look so professional! i have a few of myself from cancun about a year ago & wanted to compare myself in the same carona swimsuit, which is why i chose it!

You look fantastic!! I am so glad you said that you lost weight with an IUD, cause I have one and everyone says its impossible to do. Bourns to them!!

I lost ALL my weight with the IUD.. (I've used the IUD for birth control for 8 years... taken it out a couple of times obviously... but yeah... I've gained/maintained and LOST with an IUD in!!)people who say you can't are just coming up with lameo reasons to not lose weight!! ;o)

you look great Karilynn! So is there a reason you don't smile in your pics? You should - you look awesome. Glad to see your weight came down a little too - periods are the most miserable thing about being a woman! well, being pregnant is up there pretty high too. Of course the kids are wonderful results. lol

Uh hellooooo! 'Not nearly as bad as you thought they would be!" Have you LOOKED at yourself? You look amazing. I think you're still wearing your Karilynn fat-glasses or something because...take a better look at yourself. Compare it to your other before pix. You are remarkable! I agree with Ellura..you should smile, hon. You should exude the pride that I know you feel for changing your body the right way. I'm so proud of you, and happy for you as well! xo

I'd love to look that good in a bikini. Who knows, maybe this summer?!!

I'd never heard of P90X before I started reading your blog. I'm looking forward to hearing more about the process.
