So here I am… Day 3 of the “new” Velocity Diet. I have tried the V-Diet once before, but failed miserably when I got a short-notice deployment to Afghanistan.
Here is my starting data:
Up Arm 14.5
Up Leg 25
I have the before pics… I’ll post those when I am done… pretty ugly!
So who am I… if anyone wants to know… I have spent my life in the US Army, most of it in the Special Forces, until I became an Infantry Officer. My physical appearance was usually controlled through brutal physical training and rotating deployments. Three years ago I got a job teaching at West Point and everything slowed down. My eating never adjusted to a more sedentary lifestyle, but my body did!!
While I still make Army Body Fat percentages (so the Army doesn’t punish me for being overweight), I look in the mirror and am disgusted. The “me” in the mirror and the “me” in my mind are so far apart I had to do something drastic and focused, and I knew that the Velocity Diet was the starting point.
Last note here… I started this on Friday, February 13th. What’s significant about that? 29 days from then (Friday, March 13th) I head to Australia for 10 days of goofing off. I gotta look good for that, right!?
Follow me, don’t follow me, I appreciate everyone out there in T Nation world that holds peoples feet to the fire.
