My 12wbt Round 1 2012 - Wrap up

At the beginning of this year I weighed 111.4kg....and now I don't, thanks to Michelle Bridges and her 12wbt.

I still can't believe how successful this program has been for me, I'm in denial I think...was I really that big?? Have I really lost over 20kg?? Yes...Yes I have.

So lets see Pre season for round 1 began on 15th Jan 2012 (if memory serves me correctly); this was the day I started calorie counting and by the time round 1 officially began on the 12th Feb 2012 I'd lost 7kg.

As the round started I was quite impressed with myself that I was still going with such enthusiasm, I started exercising 6 days a week as we were told to do, I stuck to my calories, as we were told to do. I found a love for running. Sadly by week 4 I'd hurt my foot and ended up in a boot with a stress fracture. But it didn't stop me; well it kinda did. I was so busy feeling sorry for myself I stopped exercising, but I still ate clean, and it still worked, I was still losing weight, it's all about the clean eating. So as round 1 came to a close....Here's what I lost officially  13.6kg, that's 13.03% of my body weight, I was particularly thrilled with a top 8% email. I also lost 69.5cm off my body....that's massive, I still do a double take at that figure.

Pre season start 111.4 bmi 38.10 (ouch)
Round 1 start    104.4 bmi 35.70 (still obese)
Round 1 finish   90.8   bmi 31.10 (still obese - but so close to overweight)

That's what I lost...But I gained too..
I gained a smile again
I gained some wonderful friends
I gained the ability to walk into shops I haven't been able to enter in nearly a decade.
I feel like I've gained my life back and my children have a mum now who will set a good example for them.

I am still a work in progress, Another 20kg to go until I reach my goal....and for the first time in my life I actually feel like I will achieve it.



  1. wow - you've changed so much. I love how you just powered through the whole round... (and funny that we are looking forward to being overweight!!). How's your pre-season going??

  2. can you believe how fabulous you are????
