Contemplating it - and will sign up if my IVF cycle is not successful. I feel positive knowing that if I don't have luck this cycle then I still have something to focus on and put my energy in to.

I did cycle 2 this year, and while I did slack off a bit (I blame life!) it has got me into a better routine with exercise and better mindset with food. I would recommend it!

I am thinking about it, can't decide if I should just buy her cookbooks and save myself $200.

I'm on the fence.  I have a couple of her cookbooks but there's no motivation in that.  If I pay the money it might give me the kick up the butt I need.

On the flip side, I don't have access to a gym and with bub and toddler can't really go running or walker faster than snail's pace, so not sure how much I'll get out of it if I can't do the exercise component properly.

I'm going to do it. Not sure about how I'll go over Christmas and New Year as I'll be away from computers and support.

But I need a kick up the backside and have had 2 friends who have had great results.

I'm going to give it a crack! Nothing else has motivated me, so I'm willing to try anything!

Hope I'm not intruding but I couldn't recommend 12wbt enough. I did 2 rounds and lost 6kg on the first one. Went from a size 12-14 to 10. I have kept the weight of for over a year and still eat any if her meals.

I had never been able o loose ht last 5kg and I finally did. Now I am doing mini triathlons and swimming and running. If you can afford the $200 it's a good investment. Books are good but nowhere near as good as the program.  Also has a great forum like eb where you can chat to like minded people.

It's a fantastic program and I wish ou the bet if you decide o try it.

I am finishing round 3 and going to do round 4 as well.

I love it! I have lost almost 5kg, 46xm and gone from a size 12 to a 10.

The food is delicious, I am loving the gym and have made so many new friends. My depression and anxiety have all but dissappeared!

I SAVED money doing MB.  I'd go out for coffee with friends a few times a week and have coffee with syrup and a cake or a large breakfast.  I walk past the lollies, chips, biscuits, dip and icecream now. I think I worked out made it back within the first few weeks in coffee and cake alone.

The additional money I've saved in groceries went towards a heart rate monitor to track calories burned.  The only real additional cost I calculated was a gym membership.

I have made some new friends at the training sessions and feel very supported through the forums and our facebook group.

Has anybody with a large amount if weight to lose, say 30kgs, tried it?
I've got a lot to lose and want to start this but am just hoping it won't be too much.
If you did start at say 90-95kg how did you find the plan? And what did you lose in 12w?

Thank you

I've just finishing round 3 and going straight on to round 4. I'd really recommend it. I was a bit slack with the eating plans but still lost a lot of weight (considering I didn't have much to lose) and my fitness gains have been amazing. It really is life changing, particularly for those with a lot to lose. $200 is great value IMO

Oh, and I'm doing another round so I can do the half marathon training after gaining so much fitness following the intermediate exercise programme

I've signed up too. Feeling nervous but excited. I have about 10 kgs to lose - hoping to lose 5-8kgs minimum this round.

For those who have done it before how do you fit the meals in around your family? I have 2 kids - 6 and 3 years who are a bit fussy. Do you eat separately from your family or adapt the meals for them? If you stick to the 1200 calories does it matter too much if you deviate from the meal plans a bit?

I have a friend who has lost nearly this amount.  Her fb photos have motivated me to do it.

Does anyone know if you can still access the recipes after you finish.  I don't like wasting paper but will print if needed for future.

I've just finished 2 rounds (lost 19kg, size 14 to a size 8) and I didn't follow the eating plans suggested in the 12wbt plan. I went through all the recipes and formulated my own based on our family budget and tastes. I meal plan a month at a time and shop once a month (stocking up on fresh f and v weekly), so I  open up the recipe books and meal plans in the program and write out my 1200 calorie days a month in advance. We all eat the same meals, my portion always hovers around the 300 cal mark. I found My Fitness Pal excellent for keeping track of my portion sizes when having to use more ingredients to feed all of us. You will quickly learn how much you can have anyway  - how many grams of chicken, steak, fish or cups of rice. I find it comes naturally now.

I particularly found the mindset activities invaluable and I think they played a large part in my success.

The exercise programs have been excellent for me (SAHM) with 3 children, unable to get to a gym. I get to do a 'real' workout without leaving home and have successfully changed my body shape through toning.

I joined a FB group with ladies from my area and I also think that support was invaluable. They helped me get my head around the program when I first started and were a great cheer squad.

Good luck to anyone that decides to do it!

I have joined up. I also bought her 3 disc set so I can more easily fit in a session or two each week at home. All you need is a step and some hand weights (got 4 from big w for $2 each.

$200 is nothing to be sneezed at but I will definately be saving money each week. In pre-season I have gotten into the habit of carrying a bottle of water with me everywhere so I reckon I will save at least $10 per week on coffees and soft drinks.

Also I won't have to buy a whole new wardrobe I will be able to fit into everything I already have original.gif
