It is now time for
My First Day...
Hi all, Good day to you. This is Divya and I have joined this community recently. I was referred to this website through one of the past year Champion and today is my first day in the program. I am really enthusiastic and eager about my 12 week plan and hope I get lot of support from all of you...

Day 8: Weighing In??
How often should I be weighing myself during this challenge? Once a week? Once a month? Weight loss is a goal of mine but is it motivating or disheartening to weigh in weekly? I plan on taking 4,8, and 12 week pictures for a visual tracking method but how about the scale? :)

It is now time.......
It is now time for me to admit what I'm doing wrong....... I have not been trying hard enough to get my life in order. I have been so worried over the fact of being out of work and where the money's going to come from that I have put my own health on the side line. I have always been a follower...

Comparison with Pics after 4 weeks
Please see my profile and view my before and after pics after 4 weeks. I don't see much physical differences but I do feel lots stronger and in better shape. I have never missed any workouts but I did have a drink here and there when I was not suppose to.

What completing this "Challenge" would mean to me!!!!
Like a lot of us here at BFL the joy of being rid of the extra weight that has burdened us for so long would be great, but there are other reasons for me.....let me explain.....After my first BFL Challenge in 2000-2003 I was on top of the world...I was not only lean, but muscular. I felt there was nothing...

Today is my last day of the challenge!!!

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...

Hi, I am on day 10 of the BFL program. I have been looking at Bill Phillips new transformation program. I'm wondering if it is too much to do both programs at the same time or if anyone has an opinion of that program. I am for sure not leaving BFL, but wonder about the other. Thoughts?

Excess skin around middle
I am in my week 9 of my first challenge. I have been wondering about all of the excess skin I have? Will it ever tighten up or do I just put up with it (or tummy tuck)? Before starting BFL I went from 198lbs to 138lbs by doing Weight Watchers and had "some" excess skin, but since on WW...

Beginning of week 3...some thoughts
Well today is day 15. I started the week of Christmas and found the holidays to be tough to work around. For my first two weeks, I did 5 days of by the book eating and training and struggled on the days around the holidays. However, I made a conscious effort to keep my portions reasonable and caloric...

Transformation story and pictures
I haven't been here in a while....everything has changed on this site since my last visit, but I like it. My personal journey started last January when I had enough of being tired all the time and wearing size 14 pants. I also was ready to quit smoking. So I did it! Cold turkey. I through away...

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...

No Results by Week 4
I want to give you a little history first. Over the past 8 years I have gradually gained about 5 pounds a year. This past year I took on a new sedentary job where I was putting in on average 70 - 80 hours each week. I had zero time for myself or activity outside of sitting at my desk from morning till...
