I like transformation and am following the basic format but I agree with Don. Spark people spoils me. Nevertheless, I will utilize everything transformation has to offer and add it to my tool belt.

Check out my new blog on abs and please take the time to visit the site it recommends!

Have a wonderful week!

Hi guys --

I have done this program before under Body For Life and this program really works if you do it. The aerobic intensity training is great. Hitting it hard, Short, sweaty will get you results. The weight-lifting aspect is tried and true and the Eating For Life recipes are great, balance. Everything is like Sparkpeople -- it's a lifestyle.

Bill Phillips is a great guy. Before I hit menopause and then decided to go back to school -- all equaling 40 pounds in 6 years -- I participated in his BFL Transformation -- and finished in the top 2000. I was really proud of myself. It was a very very difficult time in my life and sadly I UN-DID the work I put in but it took over two years.

So, I encourage you all to try it out and I'll probably join you, because I already follow his philosophy in eating and exercise. My problem still is and always shall be the 24-hour day and me trying to get 26 hours out of it. BALANCE is a difficult thing for me, and he also will touch base on that. Taking a DAY OFF each week, is magic for recovery in many many ways. I usually made a "list" of things I wanted to "eat" etc for my DAY OFF, interestingly when I got there, it wasn't ice cream or sweets, it was something like spagetti, salad and french bread.

Well, I'm out of here tonight and off to bed before another busy day hits me. See ya'll then. PAM

sounds very interesting......will check it out thanks..............blessings and hugs.............lita


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Don has asked me to copy/paste my blog so here goes...

....Transformation.com
This is a community where people from all over the world will be connecting and sharing insight and experiences about the healthy changes they’re making in their lives. Everyone from beginners to very accomplished veteran Transformers will all be coming together....Sound a little like sparkpeople? In a way it is. No the site isn't as high tech as sp but it does offer something different.

Here is an excerpt about the book (that you don't have to buy...it's not even out yet). It gives you a gist of what the FREE site is like. For 20 years Bill Phillips has dedicated his life to transforming one vision into reality…

“Imagine a nation of healthy, happy, and truly inspired people -- living their lives to the fullest, creating value for one another, and giving great care to themselves as well.”


With Transformation, Bill explores the next dimension of positive change. This is not theory. This is a focused program for discovering -- at the deepest level of your being -- where you are now, where you want to be, and exactly how you can reach that goal.

Early on, Transformation guides readers through a detailed self-assessment chapter for identifying key spiritual concerns in their lives. Bill then describes 11 essential steps that anyone can take toward transformation -- that is, a clear path not just for “coping” or “surviving,” but for achieving the authentic happiness and fulfillment that every human being wants and deserves.

In short, Just as no one should be overweight or depressed about their body no one should be without a joyful spiritual connection. This isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity -- and it’s an absolutely achievable reality for every reader of this exciting new book.

If you love sparkpeople as much as I do and are in search of a program that will transform your mind-Spirit-body, this seems to be the next step. Both can be utilized together and both are free. (Free is great isn't it?)

So far the site appears to be Christian but I doubt we will know for sure until the book comes out. I like this site because unlike Body for Life (which is no longer owned by Phillips)...it doesn't expect you to take any particular supplement to participate.

Look at the site and give me your opinions on my blog. He has a challenge going on and the sign up deadline is mid July.

One last note...I love sparkpeople and think this can be successfully added to what we have here to take things to the next level. (pun intended)Hope you feel the same way.

TRANSFORMATION...that's a powerful word isn't it?

Think about all we have done to transform ourselves into a better us.

Now that I am 9 pounds from my goal and s-l-o-w-l-y creeping down, I am ready for more PUNCH! I need a PUSH. I have just read Body for Life and through a search found Bill Phillip's(previous owner/inventor of BFL) free site; And what do you think it is called?

transformation.com

Ready to really get serious? Ready for a mind-body-Spirit connection? This seems to be the place and it can work hand-n-hand with spark people. The site has a challenge you can join but closes mid-July...it's free!

Check it out, then if you get the chance share your thoughts and feelings in my blog titled, "transformation".

***Even if you have no interest in his site Please use this topic space to share how you feel since your transformation has begun.

I personally feel like a caterpillar in a cocoon just starting to break out. What will I become and how will I look...I patiently and excitedly await.
