Here's a group to inspire anyone who wants to see the “slim person “ who already lives inside and, in so doing, attract what they really want, a great self-image and the self-confidence to match.
Genetics gave us our skeletons but our lifestyle choices add the padding. Where that padding goes, and whether it is muscle or fat, is a choice we make every day.

Knowing what the Slim Person Inside looks like, we are more likely to do what it takes to become what we want.
How to find the Slim Person Inside
Lean Body Mass (LBM) and Body Fat % are the two keys you need to set the Slim Person Inside free. Keeping LBM constant and reducing Body Fat % is the simplest route to a great shape. Losing excess fat, not muscle, is the only way to achieve the great shape and self-confidence you want.
What is your Lean Body Mass?
LBM is your Present weight - Body Fat
If you weight 70kg with 35% Body Fat your LBM is: 45.5kg
(70kg - (70kg x 35%) ->>> 70kg - 24.5kg (fat) = 45.5kg LBM)
Now, how much does your Slim Person Inside Weigh?
If you want a Body Fat of 20% then the Slim Person Inside weighs: 57kg
(LBM 45.5kg is 80% of Target Weight ->>> 45.5kg / 80% = 57kg)
Hope that makes sense!

I don't have any desire to be a body builder but looking at the pictures on the Body for Life website inspired me to know what was possible. I was inspired by Bill Phillips' book but did not do the program nor do I sell their products. It took me over 24 months to reach a weight I liked not 12 weeks! But the BFL champions became my heroes and sheroes and their results inspired me big time. They still inspire me .... to be an inspiration to others. Check it out
How's this for a change of shape?
And what about this?
Still think your genes determine your shape!
If they can do it, so can you! Believe it!
"If you think like a slim person you will eventually start to live like a slim person."
