just wanted to check in and say hi. I hope everyone is doing well.
Starting Jan 17th, 2011, Care to Join Me?
I hope everyone is doing well. Remember to participate this week in discussions so that I know that you completed the challenge. It would be nice to know how many of us finished.
I'm still here, just been out of the country for a few weeks.
Brian, I will be joining you starting 17th group.
great to see you're still with us. Let's everybody try to make this last week a great week. I'll see you at the finish line.
Good morning!!! Im sooooo sore!! I kicked my a$$ yesterday with my UBWO! I love that feeling!! Pal_bonds~its good to hear from you!! Glad you are still with us!!! I hope all of you that have hung in there this long are still with us!!! Have an awesome day!!
Hey everyone. Hope you all are doing well. This Sat will be the end of my 1st challenge and I have to say I really slacked off the last 5 weeks with eating. Exercise has been super but man, I just totally tanked the eating part. All the Holidays proved to be just way too much temptation for me. So I'll be starting my second challenge on Sunday. I figured I haven't really been "on" BFL 100% for the past few weeks so might as well start a new challenge. I have made some positive changes. I do feel like I look better and I certainly feel better so that in itself is worth keeping on BFL. I will post pics on Sunday. Thanks for all your support. It's been a huge help having people to connect with while on this challenge. I hope the very best for all of you.
Hey everyone. I started a new 12 week program on Sunday. I am feeling more dedicated than I have in the last month. I put on a lot of weight over the holidays and it is discouraging to know that I let myself do that.
I have started a group with some friends that weigh in every Monday and then calculate the % of body weight we have last and after 12 weeks the top winners take home money that we have all entered with. So far I have over 100 ladies that have joined! In the past I have done a couple of these contests and have never had over 51 people so this is quite the group! Yesterday we did our first weigh in and I am excited to see how everyone does. It keeps me motivated to keep going when I have a goal and people count on me.
Good luck and thank you all for your support over the last 3 months!
Well, sorry I have not written more, but today was my big day! For the last 12 weeks, I have had this day on my calender and I did my final weigh in.
On October, 18th, I weighed 289 pounds and my goal was to get under 250.
12 weeks later on January 4th, today I weighed in at 245 3/4, therefore I have lost 44 pounds in the first 12 weeks. I have had several people make comments and It was great to get a few new clothes last week. My family could totally tell the differance at Christmas!
I am so excited and I am not going to stop, my next 12 week gaol is to get under 225. I have the 12 week date on my calender and I am not going to stop. I love feeling so much better. Sorry I don't have pictures, but I am trying to work on getting some. Well, I hope that all of you are doing well and keep going!!!!
it's great to hear that everyone is making progress and redoubling thier efforts. As for me I had hoped to go out with a bang on this last week but will end up with more of a wimper. I've been running a fever since yesterday. I'm trying to eat right but I don't want to overstress my body by working out. Anyhow, I'm not terribly discouraged. Ultimately it isn't the last week, just the last week of THIS challenge. I'll have better weeks I'm sure on the next challenge: "Starting Jan 17th, 2011, Care to Join Me?"
Anyway, be great everybody,
well I'm finally getting over the fever and chills. Anyhow, I think maybe it helped me lose a pound, so not all bad. Hope everyone is having a great last week.
This has been the best week of my whole challenge. I wish I would have maintained this sense of urgency throughout the 12 weeks.
I just got back from the gym so only one workout left.
BTW, I'm already planning for our next challenge on 01/17....
I'll be making two rosters for who completed the challenge. The preliminary roster will be generated tommorow (sunday Jan 09) and the second will be the final roster which I'll generated on Jan 16th, 2011 of people who completed the challenge. Make sure you pop in to say hello so that I know that you're still with us and have completed the challenge. Everyone else has discussed and is on the roster as having completed the challenge. Also I'm posting pictures to my profile tommorow. I hope everyone else does the same.
HI Everyone! I am still here, and finnished the challenge, although this final week was really rough due to a lot of fmily stuff going on... I will do my final measurements and stuff this afternoon and post more- just wanted to pop in and say I am still here :)
I am sad to report that I am unable to finish this challenge. I dislocated my knee last weekend and am unable to workout. And may be looking at surgery. I am very disappointed for me but very proud of those who have completed this with all of the challenges we have had. You are all champions!
