Member Tricks: Sticking to 12WBT

Community // 12WBT Staff

Mish created the 12 Week Body Transformation to help people transform their lives to become the best versions of themselves, and our February 12WBTers were no exception! Our February End of Round Award winners knocked our socks off with their transformations and commitment to the program, so we had to ask them: what’s your favourite tip or trick to keep on keeping on?


Amy (amy_ascend43)

“I have had a mantra in my head from the start which was ‘I am worth it’. That has been the backdrop for me throughout the program.”


Carol (carol_pride6)

“I am a shift worker, so I found it easiest to buy a bunch of veges, portion them up into the Chinese containers but put about 4 cherry tomatoes on top of the veges. Once microwaved the tomatoes would explode giving my veges a nice tomatoey flavour. A bit of cracked pepper and yum!”


Karine (Krane77)

“Make my own lunch. No more eating on the fly so I’m saving lots of money! I’m enjoying working out and surprising myself at what I can do, but I just need to do it without the excuses!”


Kathleen (kathleen_mac)

“I put my weight loss chart on the fridge with a red line for my goal weight loss each week. Then as I weighed in on a Wednesday morning, I marked my result on the chart in black pen. I can happily report that the black line is well below the red line which makes me feel strong and proud every time I look at it. I also show it off to everyone that visits our house.”


Lachlan (Lwest51)

“When I go out for dinner, I make sure that I check the menu out so that I know exactly what I’m ordering and don’t deviate from that! I can’t wait for the next 12WBT round to begin!”


Mary (Mary;))

“If I am planning a night out where there might be alcohol, I order a soda water and ask them to put it in a wine glass. The need to offer me a glass or a refill of wine was not an issue. People assume I am enjoying a beverage.”


Rebecca (becca_runs)

“If I buy something at the shops that’s off plan or completely naughty (if say a block of chocolate somehow falls into my basket) I actually wrap it up in a sheet of copy paper and write a message to myself that says “Do you REALLY want to eat this?!”. It’s helped me to resist binge eating things on the spur of the moment.”


Robynne (robynne_sensible98)

“12WBT has helped me hone my determination and will power to stick with control over what I’m eating. A couple of small challenges over my birthday and Easter weekend, but I still managed to control my calorie count. And it was a lot easier than I thought!”


Sharon (Sharon0127)

“One thing that helped me was that I had a food display folder and one for exercise. Every Thursday after customising my Meal Plan (feeling like I was ordering from a menu!),  I would print everything out and put into display folders in day order. This made it easy to follow my daily routines. The exercise folder would come to the gym.”


Tiffany (TVG1987)

“If I am craving something sweet I will make my own chocolate using whole food and healthy ingredients, so while it still feels like a treat, it’s a healthy option – and I only have a small piece.”
