Want to make sure I am starting things off right with my before pics

  • Hi! I am just starting my first 12 week BFL challenge. I started the registration packet and uploaded my before pics with the date stamp on them. Is this sufficient? I want to make sure I can submit everything correctly in order to compete in the challenge. Excited to get this body transformed! Thanks for any advice!

  • I started today Aug 5th and would love the support! Good luck on this journey.

  • That is about what I did, so it sounds good to me.  Completed my BFL round Saturday.  Hope all goes well for you.

  • The support that comes with this program really help, or at least I think.  I did this program in 2004 and lost 50 lbs in 12 weeks.  And I kept off 40 lbs for 6 years, then had twins in 2010.  I am doing it again to get rid of these last 27 pounds.  It's time and I am more than ready.  We can do this!!!!  Good luck, and try and stay focused.  I  recorded everything I ate and drank and weighed weekly.  That way I could see what worked for me!  

  • How much weight did you lose?  Are you satisfied with your achievements?

  • The first time I did this program back in 2001, I lost 15lbs, but I only weighed 170 back then.  It was all in my gut...lol.  This year is different cause I had had different goals and my weight has been as high as 184 and as low as 149 -  all in a 3 yr period.  I got involved in other programs and got my weight back up to 176, and looking pretty good.  When I started this round of BFL, my weight was not my goal, cause I am trying to build more muscle.  I wanted to lose in my waist...lol.  I only lost a little over 2lbs in 12 wks, but I went from a tight 36in waist to still needing a belt to hold up my 34's.  I am trying to get back into 32's since those are easier for me to find in the stores...lol.  I am very satisfied with what I did in my 12wks.  No longer am I an apple but getting closer to the V shape I have always wanted.
