Goals are “Context” Dependent. I have followed the forums for a short while and have seen many folks approach the V-Diet for the right reasons. They need to cut a few pounds that have been hanging on. On the other side, there are people who are looking for extreme loss.
I fit into the extreme category. At 18 I was 185, and even considered myself in shape. I joined the Navy, spent 23 years there keeping in shape. In shape is a broad term so letâ??s say that years and years of working out, eating everything under the sun, and frequent consumption of beer all get balanced out as we ensure we stay in shape to pass our PT requirements and weight standards. When I retired I was in the 210 range and made the statement I am not working out again until I feel like it, because I want to do it!
3 1/2 years later and I find myself looking at 250.5 on the scale and said that is it. I AM READY! Don’t get me wrong I have done more than zero, but the last year has been tough, and I easily put almost all the weight on during the last 10 months.
Well, I made the decision I am ready. And when I say I am ready I mean it.
I have been on this diet for 1 week as of today. So far I am down 10 lbs. even.
Starting weight: 250.5
Current Weight: 240.5
(All weigh-ins conducted first thing in the morning before work out and meal)
My next post will include the details of this past weekâ??s activity (work out, Die), as well as some eye openers I have encountered.
