Hello everyone! I'm beginning the BFL plan tomorrow! I did my before pics today and was shocked! I have got back to it several times and just stare at it...it's like I'm seeing someone else in those pictures. I'm excited and nervous at the same time because I have never incorporated exercise...

How long for results?
Hi everyone! I just started yesterday and I know it's a bit early to be worried about results, but I was just curious as to how long it might take. I'm only 20 and I'm not overweight, just a bit out of shape. I need to be toned more than anything. If anyone could give me an idea I would really...

Where are the diets and Exercise lists?

Who is starting 5/2??? Can't do this Alone!
I'm starting AGAIN. I originally did the challenge in 2007 and the pounds just melted away. I tried on my own on again too many times to count and failed. The most recent attempt was last Feb. I threw in the towel last after gaining two pounds during week six. I'm the heaviest I have ever been...

Preparation to start - what did you do?
Hi all, I am new here and would love to get some insights re: how others have done/are doing to prepare for their 12-week programme. I was about to jump into it (I am well versed in weight training and cardio, just not doing that enough), when I realized the toughest part might be meal planning...

Started 8/1, have a few questions :)
Hi, I am new to BFL and started on 8/1. I am not new to weight lifting and exercise, as I have gone through phases in my life where I would work out and diet for a few months and lose weight, and then totally fall off the wagon and gain it back. It's been a vicious cycle and this is why I turned...

Women vs Mens program
I showed the trainer at my gym my workout plan. He said that it was geared for men. And that I should be doing it differently. He suggested 4 sets (12 reps) each) and no rest in between two. Should I be doing 4 sets or 6 as a female? I am getting confused. This is my first challenge day 3. Along with...

Hi everyone I was thinking about buying some body fat measuring calipers. Are the simple ones adequate, where I can enter the numbrs onto the BFL calculator ,or is it best to get the ones that calculate the body fat for you? I've done challenges before and never really measured the body fat...

Breaking It Up
Hey All, I'm two weeks into my challenge and I'm curious if it is legit to break up my free days. Sometimes my weeks are such that it would be better for me to eat a free day dinner on Tuesday, a free day lunch on Saturday and free day breakfast on Sunday with no workout on Sunday either....

Started 5/9/11 Hanging on for dear life and pulling friends along for ride!!!! Others welcome.
Ok, Finally I have a few minutes to think to myself, thanks to Bren, who has one of my little guys. I am in week 6 and man this one is a doozy. I think kids being outta school and all the last minutes tying up of loose strings has made week 6 insane. I have been on an amazing journey. I am giving this...

New to BFL.. Question about free day
How does everybody treat their free day? I don't want to necessarily splurge, but I would like to get other peoples feedback as to how to handle your free day. Do you eat about the same? Do you eat completely different? Do you do any kind of light exercise?? I don't want to do all this...

I've been following BFL on and off for probably ten or more years, and whatever diversion I take (bootcamps, work-outs, diets etc - all of which are ultimately unsuccessful) I always keep coming back to this inspiring, common-sense and motivating approach and challenge - and just love reading all...

My husband and I are starting BfL next Monday (09/26/11)-- anybody else in? We're in the Seattle area and used to be pretty fit (he's athletic, I'm stubborn), but life and health issues got in our way. But no more! I am so tired of having only one darn pair of jeans-- I'm serious. I refuse...
