I am starting the BFL challenge on Monday and wanted to know if I can drink the premade shake and if so - how does it compare to the powder ones? Do...

Couldn't Get Up This Morning...
One of the hardest things for me in this lifestyle change is getting up early in the morning - I have always had trouble doing it, often getting out of bed 15 minutes before I had to leave the house. I have been doing well since starting BFL (I'm in W2D3) but today I couldn't get up for my...

About to begin week 5
Hey Guys I just want to encourage you all. I am a from Humble Texas and I started the challenge on March 7th. I started at 247 pounds and around 30% body fat.

Started for the millionth time yesterday! This is it!!
I have started the challenge a crazy amount of times only to quit within a week. I made it 2 weeks once. It feels different this time.

Met the enemy, and it is "I"; buddies wanted to hold me accountable; long time back-sliding BFLer here
So, after massive layoffs at work this week, including two close friends, I am one of three survivors in my group. I spent a lot of time this week looking and feeling(and acting) like Jay Leno in a Doritos commercial, fat, dumb, and happy all with a straight face crunching salted carbs. On Monday, I...
