I just finished my first challenge a little while ago and had no one to share it with, so I wanted to share the excitement with you all. When I tell my friends and family, they don't really seem to understand what is involved with it, and seem to think its just like any other fad diet. I have learned that this is a lifestyle I truly need to stick with for the rest of my life. Anyway, I did well with it, lost 21 pounds and gained a lot of discipline towards getting important things done. I just started challenge 2 and have already lost weight my first week. I wish all the best of luck and I want to participate more in the BFL community!
congratulations on finishing your first challenge... I cant believe you started your second one already. Seems like you have really taken on the meaning of body for LIFE. I hope this one goes as well as your first one... Keep us updated! Congratulations!!!!!
Great job on finishing a challenge!! Did you take before and after photos? I love to see results! Way to go on starting another one!! Good luck!
Congratulations! I just finished my first challenge as well. I'm starting my next one on November 22nd. If you haven't found a group to do this challenge with, I highly recommend it. Our little group shared challenges, victories, tips, and thoughts about life in general. I think we all agreed that the support we got from the group was an integral part of our success. Nice work!
There's a girl out there warming up with your max.
Congratulations....keep up the good work!

Congratulations on finishing your first challenge. It is a reason for celebration. Not many people finish what they start, and you did..so be proud!!! Did you take a week of AR before you started this challenge? Good luck on challenge 2.

Congratulations Jasongitar! You definately came to the right place. WE GET IT HERE! We KNOW what you had to do to continue getting it done, day after day. High 5 and best success with C2!
Wow! Thank you everyone! This is exactly what I needed!
Thank you Sandra! I did take before and after pictures, I didn't see a huge difference in this challenge, I went from 230 pounds down to 209, so its mainly in the face, with a little bit of muscle definition. I think I will really see the difference after my 2nd and 3rd challenge. Can we post before and after photos on here?
Wow, that sounds awesome, I would love to have a group like that!
Thank you so much! I definitely will!
Hey! Thank you so much! Yes I did take a 2 week break after finishing my first challenge, and I felt like crap! I couldn't wait to get started again! My first challenge ended on my birthday October 10th, then I took 2 weeks to celebrate my birthday and just take a break. It was fun for a few days, but then I started waking up irritable and bloated, I ate unhealthy just to have that freedom, and my body just couldn't handle it, I even got a kidney stone and had to go to the ER. it showed me that I really needed to make BFL my lifestyle. I'll probably only do a 1 week break after this 2nd challenge and eat much more cleaner. I started my 2nd challenge October 25th, and now I'm 2 weeks back into it and feeling much better.
Thank you!!! So great to meet people that are passionate about doing this!
Thank you! Yeah I couldn't wait to start that 2nd challenge, I took a little break after the first one, and even though some of my food choices were still healthy and somewhat small portions, I still felt like crap. I really need to live a life of 6 small meals and work outs almost everyday.
