Ok so I’m not too sure how to start this off…I guess just the basics.
I’m a 23 year old full time masters student and also work full time as a service coordinator for an HVAC company in lovely London, ON. I am doing this V-Diet because I have hit a personal plateau and need something to help me kick my own ass! When I was little I was this tiny scrawny little thing who played baseball all summer and ringette and hockey all winter and also did competitive springboard diving and gymnastics.
Doing all this meant I could literally eat whatever I wanted and I was always extremely tiny. I gained a little weight and was then a comfortable normal size and then, well then high school rolls around,I become lazy, I start working and stop playing sports and wouldn’t you know it, I put on a good 15-20 lbs in a summer. Fan-fucking-tastic. This is exactly the age and time a young girl wants to gain weight, you know when kids are nice. My mother even gave me the loving nickname “chunky monkey”, thanks mom.
Anyways I managed to lose most of that weight between my 1st and 2nd year of university. I looked a lot better, but still had no real definition to me. It was then that my amazing boyfriend suggested I start hitting the gym with him and get into weight training.
Being the naive workout person I was I quaffed and told him I didn’t want to get “bulky.” He assured me I wouldn’t and since he’s the one that gets to look at me up close and personal I decided to take his word for it. Just months after I began I couldn’t believe how amazing I felt, and I started to get more defined arms and just had more energy. I didn’t really lose too much weight but that didn’t matter, I looked and felt better. Whoever started that nasty rumour that women will get bulky and begin looking like the hulk if they workout should be punished…severely.
So now I’ve been training pretty consistently for about two years but I’m still not really 100% satisfied with how I look. At the time I was thrilled but the further along you get with health and fitness the more you seem to crave it.
My friends and family don’t/won’t really get why I’m doing this stating ‘you already look great’ and ‘this is basically a starvation diet’ and I don’t think I’ll really be able to fully explain it to them as they just know what the media and general society perpetuates.
However I have my guy on my team and that’s all I need. Some people may call me vain for wanting to look better but I’m just doing this for me, I want to push myself, I want to go further, and I want to finally have the body I’ve been dreaming about for about 8 years now!
Ok, sorry for the rant I just now realized how much I’ve typed out but I feel good and am ready to start! I was supposed to start on Friday but unfortunately customs took a long time to clear my package because of the HOT-ROX. However it made it over the border and I am ready to start tomorrow, Monday. My boyfriend and I already have the Metabolic Drive and other necessary components here to get my day started and the package will be ready for pick up at 10 am!
Here I come V-Diet, I’m hungry and so incredibly ready for change!
Here are my starting stats and pictures:
Chest Over: 34 Under: 30
I am hoping to lean down my thighs and waist!
