Hey auntruthie - now there are two of us! We'll have to work hard to keep up with the "kids." Will be fun - an honorable mention is very cool- congrats.
I'm in! I started today, 1/1/13. I am starting at 270 pounds...down from the mid 300's. The change from where I started and to where I am now is incredible, so I am really excited to do BFL and see a huge change in 12 weeks. I am totally committed to the diet and workouts---but I know I'm going to need like minded people to keep me going and I want to encourage anyone else that needs it! Good luck to you all! We can do this!!!
I weighed and measured myself this morning. Need to take the pics yet. Doing a lot of cooking today to prepare for the week ahead. The secret to success is to plan, plan plan!! Hope everyone is having a good first day
I also started the challenge on the 31st. This is my 1st challenge and I hope I can stick with this.I am excited to know other people are doing the challenge too.
Great workout today...need to work on my meals
have you tried bodybuilding.com, they used to have a good price, or do you have a vitamin shoppe near you.
I'm in!! Hereigo1, I was in that forum too! I went to the facebook group and brian is still there :) I got sick for 3 weeks so I decided to start over now, so excited!! Good luck everyone!
Took my before pictures, measuring tonight, and I had a great workout. The food has been clean. So excited to see where this goes! Good luck and happy new year everyone!
I'm game.....did it for 8 weeks back in 1999? Lost twenty pounds and felt great....got distracted. Back then I had diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.....now I still have them, and prostate cancer, and more weight. I'm 61 right now and am HIGHLY motivated. Getting into shape and losing weight will have a positive effect on all those medical problems.
So, again, I'm game!
hi everyone! hope everyone's first day went awesome! I am the one who started on 11/26 but nobody in my group is left or at least nobody is chit chatting. so I need you guys!!! still going strong. its fun to hear everyone's stories. I am a 39 yo female and on a personal journey to live my best life now and the rest of my life. doing a 12 week bfl journey to my 40th birthday in feb! how is everyone feeling after the first day????
I am starting Monday so reading the posts of those who already started is so inspiring. I downloaded the BFL app for my phone and I am reading some info on detrimental effects of sugar. Trying to get "excited" about giving it up 6 days a week! Going to make 4 weeks of meal plans then just reuse them every 4 weeks. Will do shopping and prepping on Sunday as well as taking my before pics. Hope I get my BFL book and journal by then.

Hi Chris! Count me in too! I'm ready. Sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I'm in! Started today eating better and tomorrow will be a weight workout. I don't have all the details down yet, but I wanted to start on the first of January. Read the book about 6 years ago and followed it then and lost a bunch of weight and got really strong, then life got in the way. Can't live like this anymore so I've been struggling off and on for a while. I really noticed that since I'm overr 45 now, the weight really does not want to come off! I know BFL works, so I'm actually wanting to do a challenge this time for the accountability. Do I really have to take a picture and upload it? I have 4 teenage sons and I'm afraid one of them will stumble on it while using my iPad.
Good morning party people. I hope all of you had a good first day, or second day if you started on Monday. I had a good time yesterday eating every 2 to 3 hours. I even managed to work black eyed peas in my meals (I figured they were a carb on the BFL program). I need the good luck they bring. I did lower body for my first workout of BFL, and I did hit a ten on hamstrings (lunges kill me...in a good way). I'm feeling pretty sore today, but in a good way.
This morning has been a struggle. I had planned to work out early, but I woke up totally congested and with a sore throat. I decided to take a decongestant and do my cardio workout this evening. That way my body will get a little more rest.
I found this article about working out when sick, and I though some of you all might enjoy reading it.
You never know when you are going to hit a roadblock in the program, but don't let a minor cold or congestion stop you from succeeding.
Linda, you don't have to upload a picture to use BFL. However, if you want to compete for the prize money, I think you have to submit a picture.
Thanks, Chris. Had a great workout this morning with two of my sons joining me. I find it easier to do 2 full body workouts a week rather than 3 partial. Great article on working out when sick. Thanks.
