My 12-Week Transformation with Pictures!

  • This was my bio from the first week of the challenge (Week of February 25th)

    This is my second go-round, first being back in fall of 2005.  I finished the challenge and had awesome results!  Since then I've just done my own thing as far as working out goes....took up tennis--MAJOR FAT BURNER, running, SELF Challenge, Jackie Warner Videos, Spinning, Etc.

    HOWEVER, I slowly let the weight creep back on the last couple years... Then I got pregnant.  At my heaviest weight ever.  And I'm not ashamed to say--well, maybe a little--that I *might* have pulled a Jessica Simpson....ha!  

    My daughter recently turned 4 months and is sleeping 10-12 consecutive hours through the night so it's high time I got back on a program.  Especially one like this; one that I know will yield results!  

    All in all, I've already lost 40-some pounds since my delivery.  I have about 25 more to go to my "happy weight".

    And my after bio (week of May 18th)

    The second go-round of my BFL journey was a lot of things.....Hard. Awesome. Stressful. Fulfilling. Motivating. Frustrating. Fabulous.  That awesome baby I mentioned in week 1?  Yeah, those sweet sleeping habits changed mid-challange and salted my game a bit!  :-)  My morning workouts changed to night workouts and some nights I didn't even sit down until I went to bed.  I had a business trip in week 8 that derailed me a bit, and a severe case of burnout in week 12 (the worst time ever!) that didn't leave me finishing as strong as I'd hoped.  But I did finish.  And my baby is now 7 months and she's still salting my game.  :-)  I have a feeling it will be that way for the next 18 years, and it's so awesome!  :-) I'm taking it easy this week and starting up a modified C2 next Monday.

    If you're just lurking to find more out about BFL I can only tell you to take the leap!  It's an amazing program and it works!!!!  If you're just starting the challenge my best advice to you is to find a thread you love AND CHECK IN DAILY!  I've been in the Cottage Cheese Club since week 1 of my challenge and checked in almost every business day.  I've made amazing friends and it kept me going when I wanted to say screw it!  Hold yourself accountable.  You can do this!  :-)
