Re: Is there anyone doing BFL in the UK
This is an impressive loss. You are way ahead of me. How do you exercise? I am 38, how old are you -if you don't mind me asking? What's your goal being on BFL i.e., lose, gain muscle, etc.? Ruby

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...

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...

Are there other people that's taking a long time to get used to BFL???
I was looking for some support from those who are/were having a hard time getting started with BFL. I am not much of an exerciser so planning exercises are difficult for me. Also I have no clue about weight lifting, so I have only been the 20 minute cardio portion. The first few weeks I started off slow...
