Please Help!!! We are Losing steam after 2 1/2 weeks
My wife (Sheila) and I (Noel) began the BFL challange on Monday August 2nd, 2010. We have stuck to the fitness and Nutrition plan without cheating, but the issue is that we haven't seen big weight loss, or inch losses and both my wife and I are a little dismayed. We are committed to finishing the...

Is there a way to get the BFL workout to under 40 minutes?
My gym opens at 6:00 am. I MUST be out of there by 6:40 in order to get to work on time. Is there some way to get the wo in under 40 minutes? I know shortcuts aren't exactly the best idea, but any advice would be appreciated.

BFL meal plan alterations during an injury
HELP! I tore my LCL (not too horribly it seems) but this is obviously affecting my workout. I'm trying to alter my meal plans to be much less calorie intensive since I'm not able to work out as often or as intensely. I will still be doing cardio can't as intensely for at least 6 months...

Help, no measurable changes in last 4 weeks!
Hey everyone! I've been a big fan of BFL for years, and have seen some great results over that time. Unfortunately, I did a good deal of backsliding when life kinda kicked me in the rear. Before we were married, I introduced my wife to BFL and she and I both had really solid results. (since I had...

Hello, my name is John and today was a day of fate which charted the path of my destiny. While cleaning up an old office space I found a book, a book that I believe will change my life forever. The book is called "Champions Body-for-Life," I started to read it and all I can say is wow!! However...

Is This Normal?
Hi Everyone, This is my second time around on BFL. The first time was last year; I lost 20 pounds in 4 weeks but quit due to a chest infection followed by hip injury. I am only in my first week now and I am noticing a pattern that happened last year. I feel going crazy for something sweet every...

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...

Week 5 and struggling
Hey everyone. I am in week 5 and having a hard time staying motivated. Week 4 was brutal. I missed 2 workouts and my diet was crap. I have started week 5 now and I am trying to keep with it. In 5 weeks the scale has hardly moved, but I did lose about 1-2 inches everywhere on my body. Needing some...

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.

I just started week 6 and decided to weigh myself at the half way point and found that after 5 week of BFL, I've gained 2lbs :-(. I still have this ridiculous belly fat and haven't seen any changes, I'm starting to wonder if this is really going to happen. I've had some weeks where I...

Can a person really change their physique?
I've never had a man's physique. No chest! My chest looks "pointed like an immature female". I'm not fat. 200 lbs and 6' 1" tall. Is it really possible to change that and look like a real man? Seems like an impossible dream to me.
