I'm at the same point as you... I've lost 15lbs, look leaner, feel stronger, better cardio. Each session at the gym I am able to push just a little harder than the las one. I also am suoer excited about the last five weeks!
We're almost there!
I am in week 8 now, and will do measurements and stats at the end of the week, but below is what has happened so far. One discount is that for week 6 I was very sick for the full week, and did no exercising but followed the eating program. Week 7 was doing some rebuilding and my lungs are still bad so the cardio has been slow to recover.
And I too share your excitement.

Thanks guys looks great! Keep it up.....do u guys plan on doing another challange after?
jodielee, I certainly plan on it. I know I can accomplish only so much in 12 weeks and I was in such bad shape when I started, so once my challenge is over, and I do two weeks of active rest, I plan on a second challenge to get me the rest of the way to my long term goals.
middle of week 11 here wow cant believe i stuck it out this long I didn't start to see anything happening until week 10.. starting weight 262 end of week 10 down to 236 stronger and with cardio i can actually do the entire 20 minutes without walking.. started out doing about 1.3 miles on the treadmill for HIIT I just broke the 2 mile mark .. keep at it jodielee the best is yet to come..
island dude, you hit two of my goals, the 2 miles and the whole HIIT without walking. Congrats and great job.
just hit a personal best on cardio... minutes 1 and 2 walk, then jog/ran the rest! Never been a runner, so for me this was a pretty good feeling!
Hope everyone having great workouts today!

Keep doin what you doin and you'll be there too.. 1jodio way to go! jodielee I'm taking 2 weeks AR after next week and gonna get back on the train again.. still have a way to go even though i have made great progress since i started... lookin for that flat belly and broad shoulders hehe :-)
