Back after 8 years!
In early 2002 I had been out of the Army for about a year and just let myself go. My brother turned me on to this book written by Bill Phillips called Body for Life. I really can't remember that far back, but I do remember I started my first and only challenge at 320lbs and when the twelve weeks...

Re: Nenette's transformation blog
Confessions of a Cheater Looks like any average gym room, innocently enough... Inside these four walls, I have practiced self discipline, grueling dedication and resolve, sweat and overcome my mental obstacles. It is a source of my sore muscles and inspiration to keep going. The thing is I'm...

Re: Nenette's transformation blog
Ooohh....Ouchh....I think it is sinking in as I woke up this morning with a headache and every muscle complaining. For the next 10 weeks, my body will be in a perpetual state of healing? I guess I thought somewhere along the way, that the soreness would go away as I got used to things. But here it is...

Re: Nenette's transformation blog
"Save it for your free day." That's what I told myself all week when that glorious peanut butter cookie stared at me with it's mini chocolate Reeses candies peeking out here and there. I could be responsible and wait until Sunday. I have fresh baked cookies in front of me all day at...

Tiasmile's 1st BFL
Sunday evening 6/20/2010 I'm starting this tread as my online journal so everyone who's interested can read about my journey. Also, I feel that the more active I am on this forum, the more active I am with journaling, this will help keep me accountable. My starting stats: My goal stats...

kat5499 is starting tomorrow 6-28-10 and going to finish what I've started... for a change.
Have always been starting things I NEVER finish. Good intentions always thrown to the way side.... But this time "it" won't be different... "I" will be different.... About 10 years ago and at 5'6" I maxed out my weight at 197lbs. At that point I asked myself whether...

Re: Beginning challenge June 29, 2010
Thanks BFLnewbie25: I'm thrilled to find believer here practicing obedience. I suspect it will take me 2 rounds as well. Went to a meeting last night and was encouraged in self control as the fruit of the spirit. God's work in me! So my part is to humbly admit, surrender and do the next...

Accepted the challenge
I just started the challenge this past Monday. I have been consistently working out for the last 3 months (and i did see changes) but the changes were not fast enough. After reading Body-for-Life and Eating-for- Life I realized what I needed to change. After only 4 days of eating better and focusing...

Today is my last day of the challenge!!!
I made it woohoo! With the wedding coming up I wasn’t able to log into the BFL website as much as I wanted to but I did want to let you all know we (My fiancé and I) both made it. I was sad to do my last weight lifting yesterday, but the changes I have made and seen in myself have really...

Starting Week 10
I'm now starting week 10 and I can honestly say I have not been doing that well the last 4 weeks. I cheated and missed multiple workouts. I think one reason was that I was seeing good results and I felt almost satisfied with what I saw. The truth is I'm far from my goals and feel like I should...

Challenge 1 complete
I completed my first challenge... I have to say the whole process was hard but fun. Based on my pics and results, I can see some changes but the stuff you don't see is the way I feel when I play with my kids. I definitely outlast them. Check out my profile to see before and after pics. I'm...

MY BODY FOR LIFE ROLERCOASTER RIDE
WOW Its amazing to realize I am not the only person having these rolercoaster feelings. I've had alot of negative people in my life who didn't believe in me and who told me everyday that I am such a failure and a loser and I will never get anywhere in life. In the beginning it really bothered...

24 Nov 2010
Hello, So I've decided to do this, read the book, watched the movie etc. The eating part is under control my only problem is when to go to the gym. I work as a flight attendant so my hours are pretty random. I know if I don't go to the gym in the morning I should wait 3 hours after eating...

Nenette's transformation blog

Week 7 but things are not going well.....
Hi everyone. Am in Week 7 of my first challenge. And today had a Body composition analysis at Golds to compare with the one I had at the start. Things clearly are not going well. I am doing all the workouts and I think I am keeping to the food but I can't help feeling things are not going well...

Had to buy new jeans over the weekend..
And have a feeling they will need to be replaced 'soon' too, as I think they will be too big very soon :). When I started, I took pics, but didnt do measurements so I dont know how many inches I'm loosing, but the belly is for sure disappearing. Last week was rough. Am at the 1/2 way point...

Am I on track to meet my goals?
Hi, I'm new to the site and in my fourth week of body for life. I tried setting up my profile a couple of weeks ago, but the site was having some technical difficulties. Anyways, I'm a little discouraged and I can't really tell if I'm on track to have that "changed" body. Mind...
