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?
