Thank you fit4life!! Your photo's have inspired me throughout the last 12 weeks. I love the picture of you holding your daughter. You are totally ripped! (smile) I worked so hard and really appreciate your kindness.
Thank you so much lorig277! I asked your height etc because I was pretty sure we were relatively the same height and I was right. You give me hope. I have about 10 lbs-15lbs (my ideal) (7%-9% bodyfat) to lose so your transformation is kind of what I can achieve. I am a touch shorter but otherwise very similar. I am starting at a heavier weight than you but not by too much.
You have done an amazing job and thank so much for providing that meal plan...SOOOO helpful to see what others have done/do and what has worked for them.
ayummymommy, Your transformation will be outstanding! In the end, the weight was dropping off so fast I was eating extra calories so I didn't lose to much. You don't have alot to lose. Remember to push hard every day and leave the gym feeling like you gave it 100%. I am excited for you and looking forward to seeing your results. Go for it!!
Thank you and I am hoping it starts to "fall off" soon too. Did you have stalling points? When did you really begin to see changes? What did you find the most difficult about the process?
Lori you look absolutely amazing! I know you must be so so so proud!!! Your makeup looks perfect by the way ;) As does everything else. You rocked it!

Another question: Did you take your free day/free meal? what were your indulgences?
Also, did you workout in a fasted state for cardio? Or did you have a regular protein carb meal before?
Did you wait to eat after?
BFLSue, You were an inspiration to me along my journey! Thank you for your kind words!! I had MAC do my makeup btw and was very happy.
ayummymommy, Most of my changes happened during the 9th week. To keep myself motivated I would read the transformational essays, use visualization techniques and read inspirational poetry. I had my ups and downs but tried to stay focused and would constantly surround myself with positive thoughts, and inspiring people. I would strongly suggest that you watch" The Body Of Work" by Bill Phillips (I watched it every day) It's on Utube. Fantastic!
As far as indulging goes by the 5th week I no longer wanted to eat sweets or salty food. I would have a chocolate chip granola bar now and then and a Big Mac here and there. I no longer wanted the junk food. I would suggest that you eat your free/meal but as time goes on it won't seem important any longer.
