Hi All,

I'm excited to have found this site. I just reread BFL, after not having really worked out or eaten healthfully for about 5 years. I'm 32 and my goal is to lose 12 pounds of FAT in the next 12 weeks. Right now I'm at 145. I know it doesn't sound like much, but I just want to feel like I'm in good shape, not just a body of jello that's lucky it's not bigger. Anyway, I just started the plan yesterday... I'll keep you posted. I look forward to getting to know everyone. - Mel

I just found this site as well and also started the BLF yesterday. How many calories are you eating a day? I consumed 1476 and think it may be to much.

I also reread ABsolutions and one or the other of them suggested eating 10 calories per pound of body weight to lose weight, 12-14 to maintain, and more (I didn't even pay attention to the number) to gain weight. I weigh 145, so I'm going to try to eat 1450 calories per day for now.

I lost 40 lbs on Body for Life in a 20 week period of 2010. Went from 227 to 187 lbs. Now I am a 33 year old 5'11" male and everyone's body reacts differently, but the plan will work if you really follow it. The key is following the diet and actually doing the workouts. Following the diet is easier if you have support. My wife (who is thin) supported me in cooking the meals and such, so that made it much easier for me to stay on track.

Do what you did for the 11 pound loss. I'm guessing that not only did you lose pounds, you also felt better, achieved a better sense of well-being. Embrace that. The pounds will take care of thems ...

Incorrect weight entry
yes, but why are you asking 'if'? you have already inputted it incorrectly or you are thinking of doing that

If we are editing it, I'd rather not have read the details about what happens after they comb their hair. Also there's nothing particularly unhealthy about 100lb loss in a year - that's less ...

bullet proof coffee
Drinking bullet proof coffee allows you to feel full without affecting the body's insulin levels. You are losing weight and not hungry. That's why it is useful for dieting.
