Can I enter the challenge more than once?
I was wondering if I will still qualify to win the prize if it takes me a few rounds of challenges? I am 5'7 and weight 180 right now and want to drop about 40 pounds of fat and gain 8 lbs of muscle. And do not know if that is doable in just 12 weeks?

Question about supplements
I'm new to the challenge and am starting tomorrow (1/2/2011). I am a college student and I can't afford to buy a lot of supplements, but I do have an event that I'm aiming to loose weight for. I was wondering if the challenge was effective without purchasing and taking supplements.

Will increasing weight make me bigger?
As a woman, I have always learned that I should do higher reps and less weight in order to trim down. When I do BFL, I'm going as high as 25lbs in dumbbells for my biceps. I'm just deathly afraid that I will get bigger. Should I increase the reps to 16-14-12-10 instead of 12-10-8-6? Thoughts...

Unsure of my portions/food intake...too much or too little?
After reading BFL, I came to the conclusion that my body's refusal to lose weight over the last several years may be due to my body being in starvation mode. For the last year, I have been doing P90X and Weight Watchers because my normal workout routine stopped working for me. I toned up quite a...
