Welcome to LWL we LUVS newbies!!
I'm an extremely slow loser too, I'm 48, but remember this is a lifestyle, so your hard work and lifestyle WILL reflect on your body in the long run.
I did BFL by the book for a 12 week stint too about 2 years ago. I didn't lose a heck of a lot weight but I did love the new way of eating and how I felt. I still eat basically the same but with tweaks here and there. The tweaks that I did is that I eat 5 meals/day instead of 6, try to eat between 1200 and 1500 cals/day, I count calories. I don't do the BFL workout I do a 3 or 4 days split.
Keep up the great work and welcome again, please also join us on the weekly thread...
