What’s really been stopping you from achieving the body of your dreams and why will you NEVER let that stop you again? If you can answer those questions, I can almost guarantee that you’re going to be in the best shape of your life before the summer is over. What’s more, if you’ll post your answer in the Burn the Fat blog comments below, you could win a whole bunch of free stuff – free ebooks and free inner circle memberships – even a FREE trip to Maui! Read on to get ALL the details…

The Summer 2011 Burn The Fat Challenge Body Transformation Contest opens Thursday, May 19th – that’s THIS WEEK – Just days away!

Why should you enter the Burn the Fat Challenge? After all, we’re surrounded by “weight loss” contests these days aren’t we?

Yes – and that’s precisely the problem!

In “weight loss” contests, people are rewarded even if they avoid weight training, lose muscle, drop buckets of water weight or even cheat by taking laxatives or diuretics… It’s all about the almighty scale. Hmpf! Big deal! I know wrestlers who can sweat out 20 pounds overnight!

This contest is different.

The Burn the Fat Challenge is the World’s First “Body Composition Transformation Contest.”

In the Burn the Fat Challenge, what matters most is burning the fat and feeding the muscle!

When you accept this challenge and enter the 2011 Burn the Fat contest, you will not only take before and after pictures, you will also measure your body fat percentage so you can be judged visually and numerically on your improvement in body composition !

“Skinny fat” people who starved and dehydrated themselves to “lose scale weight” are NOT very likely to win THIS contest, no sir!

Earlier this week, we just announced the AMAZING (and highly motivating) grand prize package, which includes two dream vacations for two to sunny Maui, Hawaii.

TODAY! Burn The Fat BLOG Giveaway Contest! Enter to Win Free e-books, Free Burn The Fat Memberships And Free Automatic Entry Into the Burn the Fat Challenge!

Today, in anticipation of the upcoming Burn The Fat Challenge body transformation contest, we are running a pre-challenge BLOG GIVEAWAY CONTEST to find out WHAT’S BEEN STOPPING YOU FROM HAVING A BRAND NEW BODY (until now – because whatever it was, it’s about to be behind you)

You see, a lot of people have emailed, commented here on the blog, posted on the facebook Burn the Fat page or answered our past surveys and said, “IM IN TOM!”

And lots of people say they want to transform their body, give up old bad habits and start a new lifestyle. But in my experience, one of the reasons so few do is because so many cling to a long list of things that they believe are stopping them.

Here’s my pre-challenge challenge to you: How many of those beliefs are real and how many are self-imposed limiting beliefs… stuff that’s only in your head that’s holding you back?

And heck – even the “REAL STUFF” – daily life challenges that get in the way and true physical adversity. Has it really been stopping you?

Bunch of kids running around the house? Couldn’t possibly find the time to workout and eat right as a busy new mom with three little ones under the age of 5 could you? Hannah did it. And she WON our first ever Burn the Fat Challenge in 2009.

“But being busy and stressed doesn’t count,” you say, “I have serious limitations.” Even your doc said so – you have orthopedic restrictions – that’s a legitimate excuse, right?

Tell that to Burner Dennis Giger, who shared his success story with our inner circle members not long ago. He burned 109 pounds of fat… despite having osteoarthritis, a hip replacement, and severe leg pain. And that was at age 55 after 35 years of totally sedentary living!

Did you read the story of my good friend Dougal Macdonald from South Africa who broke his neck in a surfing accident? Didn’t stop him. Just weeks after the last of his 5 surgeries he was pumping iron again. Today he’s a fitness role model and inspiration to thousands.

Oh, but you’re obese. You’re too far gone? When you’re that big, you can hardly even move, let alone exercise, right? Why bother? That’s a real reason – a real thing stopping you right? Well it’s stopping you if you choose to let it stop you. Mike Boyd chose to be unstoppable. He lost 256 pounds! That’s right, he was 425!

This guy is amazing! It gives me chills every time I re-read the success story and articles he’s shared with our Inner Circle members. When he started, he said, “walking 10-15 steps was killer.” Now you can find him out on the basketball court.

Do you see where I’m going with this? Because if you don’t, I could go on for pages and pages and pages and in fact there ARE pages and pages of these types of stories in our Burn the fat inner circle in the success story archives.

Yes, people have real problems, setbacks and adversities, including injuries and illnesses. I would never deny or downplay the major obstacles or disadvantages some people have to overcome. But that is the key word: OVERCOME. My question is: Are you going to overcome? Or are you going to succumb?

The question is, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to do nothing? Or are you going to do what you can with what you have, where you are, right now? Are you going to start with baby steps and build from there? Do you have the patience and the determination?

What we’re doing here at Burn the Fat is not just a contest. It’s a challenge. And I’m challenging you to answer some serious questions. This is a life-altering exercise, not just a blog sweepstakes with a chance to win free stuff. I hope you’ll participate.

To enter our blog giveaway today, you just need to post a short comment below, answering this question:

What have you believed in the past… up until now… that you thought was stopping you from having the body you always wanted? Be honest. Brutally honest. Get it out.

Then, once you’ve done that, take a cold, hard look at what you’ve just written, and ask yourself: “was that REALLY holding me back? Was it REALLY stopping me or was it just perhaps, slowing me down a bit? Was it just a temporary setback. Was it just self limiting belief? Was it a mere idea in my own head – and that’s all that’s been preventing me from achieving my dreams?”

And finally, write down, right here, right now, WHY that will never stop you again.

Answer these questions in the blog comments below – try to keep it under 500 words or less – and here’s what you could get:
