Benjamin James 28 Nov 20177:20 AM What a ride and I can honestly say that I'm 100% satisfied with my results. I may not have ended up as big or shredded or muscular as other challengers, but this is the best condition I have ever been in for my body and that's all we can do as individuals. There is always room for improvement, however, I know with absolute certainty that I did everything I could possibly do to reach my goals over the past 12 weeks, I was mentally rock solid especially towards the end in sticking to the nutrition plan, I trained like I wanted to be the best trainer in the gym, and I actually really enjoyed myself throughout the challenge and didn't stress about my results or get frustrated when things weren't quite going to plan. Setting myself the goal of making the top 10 all those weeks ago, whilst at the time I kind of thought there would be no chance in hell that I could actually make it, gave me the mentality that I had to do everything that a champion would do and that to be one of the best I had to train, eat, recover and live like one of the best. It kept me so focussed on succeeding and meeting my goals and gave me so much drive that it made the whole process quite easy because there was simply no way I was going to fail at it. Looking back now that was the best moment of my challenge because of all the benefits that followed. Every time I wanted to eat something I shouldn't I would think 'would the other top 10 challengers eat that?' and any time I wanted to take a bit more rest or use a lighter weight in the gym I'd think 'how hard are the other top 10 challengers training right now?'. Although it was all mental games with myself it did the job and got me to where I am now. Literally couldn't be happier and no matter what the final result is I'm still thrilled with how things have played out. I never joined the challenge to win or place in the top 50 or top 10, but it would be a kickass reward for the effort I put in and it'd be something to remember forever. That's just about it folks, everyone has done so well and I can't wait to see more transformations as the days go on until the winner is announced. Good luck everyone!
