I'm sure the majority of it will be based on body composition changes, but after reading through T&C's it seems your Bodyspace activity level is also a determining factor as opposed to previous years.

i was thinking of doing this with my girlfriend, so i have a few questions.

-do we start cutting/training on the 6th?
-how long does the contest last?
-do we have to upload face pics?
-if we can't do the latter, will i be permitted to make two extra accounts? (since i post on the forums and don't really want my or my girlfriends face pics floating around.)
-just how many people are entering this competition?

The pictures are required to be submitted between Jan 12-Jan 17th so you could start training anytime before or after picture submission,it's your choice.

The contest lasts until April 7th for everyone. After pictures and bodyblog are accepted anytime between April 7th-11th.

Showing your face is not required but showing at least 3/4 body is best for showing full transformation.

I'm not sure about using dual accounts, but it sounds like something that wouldn't be allowed. You can Email Transform@bodybuilding.com to see if it is allowed.

Good luck to you and your girlfriend!

My story - As a child, I grew up in a high poverty town in Michigan. Every day I ate thousands of "bad calories" from inexpensive junk foods like bologna, hot dogs, chips, you name it. I blew up to 300 lbs by age 16. 330 lbs by the end of my freshmen year in college.

I joined Bodybuilding.com about four years ago. Through the forums and fitness advice here, I spent hundreds of hours learning the art of fat loss and body recomposition.

At my best I lost 140 pounds. After months and months of dieting, working out, and calorie restriction, I got too skinny,

I never had a muscle base.

I spent the next couple years lifting and eating and dieting in vicious cycles, gaining strength, getting fat again, and losing it, and trying to strike a balance of gaining muscle and losing fat.

In December, I had a traumatic surgery in which I almost died - in fact I technically did. My heart stopped for a brief time. After months of recovery in 2013 I lost a lot of strength, and gained a lot of weight sitting around while on disability from work.

The past few months I've worked to gain that strength back, and gained more weight in the process.

After all these years, I never achieved my dream body. Not once.

This 12 week challenge will be time to finally finish the transformation. I hope you all are ready for some tough competition, because I'm not going to "just participate", I'm not going to "try to win"...

I am going to win.

No, you have to wait until 12:00 AM MST on the 13th because that is right after registration closes. Then the 13th until 17th 11:59 PM MST is everybody's window of opportunity to submit their before pictures while holding a newspaper dated between those dates.
