The numbers game

I’ve signed up for this Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation.  I’m relatively committed.  More committed to this than I have been to most other ‘diets’ that I’ve thought sounded like a good idea at the time.


I’m competitive.  I like a good challenge.  I also like simple, easy to follow, makes sense kind of stuff.  This seems to tick those boxes.  Calories in minus calories out.  Simple.  The 12WBT promotes a 1200 calorie intake for a female.  The dashboard feature tells you how many calories you need to just exist (mine is currently 1600 per day). On that maths alone, I’m already sitting at a 400 calorie deficit.  I’ve been aiming to burn via exercise an additional 500-1000 per day.  Fuck me –  this program has to work on those numbers!

I’ve given up all fun beverages for this 12WBT.  I know – hardcore.  Committed.  I also live in a cold climate, and its the middle of winter.  I’ve had my sorry arse outside running in the rain, sleet and ice (minus 4 degrees celsius is the coldest so far).  I am slightly mad.

What has brought all this on?  The numbers on those wretched scales.  When I started this 12WBT I weighed the same as I did when I was 9 months pregnant.  Unacceptable.  I want to shop for a new wardrobe.  I’m sick of looking at the same drab things day in and day out.  I am going to shed 30kg’s before I stop chasing numbers.  This 12WBT may in fact become a 24WBT, so be it.

How motivated are you to achieve what you want?
