BFL Beginner looking for Friends for mutual encouragment! LIve in Sydney Australia and would love to hear from anyone who has just started.
Hi All, I am on my second day of week two and already can't believe how my mindset has changed and the feeling of a real inner strength. I am also flabbergasted that I haven't wanted one drop of alcohol! As I drank at least every couple of days in my "before BFL". I would consider...

Is this the right program for me?
I have been doing the program for a few weeks now and I feel it is going well. However, despite the fact that I am lucky enough or fit enough to do the cardio and strength training, I have 70-80 pounds to lose. Is this more of a program for someone who just needs to lose a smaller amount of weight, someone...

Please Help!!!Weight training
I did my first LBWO on Monday, and I really think I may have started lifting too much weight. I have been extremely sore, to the point where I can't sit down and my muscles spase every now and then, and Im still walking with a limp; but it feels good in a weird way LOL As a newbie to exercise, how...

I have a few clarification questions if you y'all can help me please??? - Mushrooms are considered a veggie right? What about tomatoes? - Is there a limit to veggie intake in a day/meal? - Sometimes there is someone on the machine that I need -- is there a right or wrong order to muscle...

I am a 45 year old man and I have worked out regularly for about 25 years, so I am pretty fit but still softer in the middle than I want to be. I started the BFL program two weeks ago and lost almost an inch off of my waist the first week, but this week nothing at all. My first instinct is to work out...

Reaching failure point
Hi guys, new to the site and Im slightly confused on one aspect of the gym section. Im aware you do your 12,10,8,6,12 and Super set another 12. What Im unclear on is when you start the session you start on 12 reps so for example on the first set of 12, do you lift the weight until you almost reach...

Not exactly "starting from scratch"
Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice from the "veterans." I have been obsessively reading these forums (ha) and some of the people have some amazing results. However, I notice that many were starting from being sedentary, no exercise, or starting after a period of "letting themselves...

Day 1 Jitters!
Hello, all, it is day one for me, and like any new adventure, I have a mix of excitement and butterflies, all at the same time. I've tried other plans and ditched them all for one reason or another (primary reason being that I'm lazy:(). Recently diagnosed with Freiberg's, so lots of pain...

How to start?
Hi. I did the BFL about 6 years ago with great results. I have bought 2 of the books (which of course now I cannot find). I have been doing the TNT program with no results, and really want to get back to what I know will work. On small problem...I cannot remember what the original program is except...

Re: How to start?
Hi I just joined this site today and signed up to start the challenge at the end of June, to give myself time to understand and program and prepare. I am already working out 6 days per week and watching my caloric intake [also watching protein, fiber, calcium, etc.] But I digress. I wanted to ask...

First Challenge - Motivation
Just finished week four and I don't feel like much has changed with the way my body looks. I feel healthier, but I don't feel like I "look" healthier. Any advice or motivational stories? I just need to know that others who have struggled with this have gotten through it and still...

1st week down!! Woo-hoo!!!
Okay, so first week, down! I am so proud of my family (hubby and kids, 12 and 14) for committing to this with me. I haven't done measurements on the kids yet (and don't think I'll post them even when I do), but after 1 week, my husband has lost 3 inches off his chest, 1/2 inch off his...

Re: Starting Monday June 27, 2011
Hi all! I started today too. I did my Upper Body and I don't think it was hard enough, so I'm going to up it next time. Food so far - great! I had fish for dinner tonight and it was good! My biggest fear? Not staying motivated and quitting after about 2 weeks. That's my pattern. I feel...
