I started today as well. Is this your first time doing BFL? I did it back in 2007 and I loved it. I really like meeting people and the support you get on here.
I started my second week today so I have a head start on you but would wish you the best of luck. Some of us are on a group on facebook called BFL Newbies. You should join that group as well, we have a bunch of people starting today.
I'm in Donna, do we want to start a group here?
I started today too! New to the forum but would love to join up and support each other! Good luck!

Hi all. I'm starting on Monday, Feb 13. I'm using this week to really understand the food. Figure out what exercises I'm going to start with and how heavy of weights I can do. Bought an exercise bike for my cardio days and am reading the book twice this week. I did the exercise program back around 10 years ago and loved it but didn't really do the food plan. Now 48 and 20lbs overweight need to make a drastic change in my routine. I was getting int he winter slump. I plan on making sunday's my food plan day for the following week. I really need this for so many reasons. Will definately be on here for motivation and staying on track.
Hi Karh, good luck! I love all the prep you are doing, such a great idea!
For some reason, I think typical protein servings are about 3oz, give or take depending on your size but I could be wrong.
Thanks Andy....I will check out facebook tonight....How's your second week going? Donna
I did BFL about 7 years ago and did awesome. Kept the weight off all this time but had a long illness, knee surgery, andf a neuroma in my ankle so I am dealing with some issues. However, I am learning to work through the ankle pain and although I cant run anymore I am doing a lot of walking.....Support on here does make a difference....
I usually go with 4 oz. Its just right for me with lots of veggies.....
That sounds like a great plan!!! Putting one day a week away for meal planning is a nice strategy as well....Good luck
I did BFL years ago and took pics every 4 weeks. You could not imagine the transformation. Unbelievable. I was over 172 lbs back then. I am starting this challenge about 25 lbs less and only want to lose 10 lbs but I need to build musle and tone so this is perfect for me.....
