Starting today 08/02, but still training for a half marathon...
My husband and I are starting BFL today! We're so excited to start feeling more energetic and looking our best. However, I'm in the final three weeks of training for a half marathon. My running days fall on the three cardio days for BFL, so I'll be doing my runs instead of the 20-minute cardio...

Re: I just can't do it-My confidence is shot
Hello! Sixpackmission, like you I have know about BFL since 1999. I have had great success in 2000-2003 losing 72lbs and gaining 18lbs of muscle....but due to medical problems I gained it all back.

Back on track after 10 years!
In 1999, my new year's resolution was "go to the gym and get fit". Hubby then dragged me to Healthy Life where the gorgeous girl who managed it (can't remember her name now) pulled out Bill Phillips' book "Body For Life" and showed me a picture on the jacket of a girl...

Results not typical and other Wet Blankets
I need to write about this to get it off my chest so I can move on from the "Stinking thinking" and be success oriented. Yesterday I was talking to my husband about how a lot of females don't see huge changes until week 8 or 9 in BFL. I'm in the tail end of C1W6 and I've begun...

I want to succeed so badly on BFL but I do well for about half the week then lose it. How can I keep motivated and going?? I don't hate the food or the workouts (for the most part :)) I am so sick of letting myself down and making excuses. Any help or suggestions would be so appreciated.

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.

A complete change of the mind
hi everyone, I'm on day 19 now. I actually, stopped counting. I usually put X in the BFL calendar and all I know is that when I reach week 12 and tick the last box, I will take two weeks of active rest and move onwards to another and then another, etc. I started my first week counting the days...
