WARNING: There will be pics. Feel free to back out of the thread now before retinal damage occurs! Also, if the only thing you can share is some variation of “damn, you’re fat!” either 1) go away and trash some poor idiot on RMP or 2) at least get creative and use a thesaurus. Otherwise, welcome! EDIT: and say, wouldn’t it be nice if they told you that your pic would attach above the post thus rendering the warning “too little too late- aargh, my eyes!!”
To make a long story short: Girl starts life tiny (and early), girl figures out how to put on weight, girl fails to stop putting on weight, girl tries lots of diets… for about 2.4 days each! Girl finds T-Nation, V-Diet whacks girl across face with glove and throws it down at her feet… and girl finally does something right. Girl. Gets. Pissed.
And so it begins. Today was day 1. And just in case you’re looking at the date, yes, it is the first of the month, but that’s purely coincidental. Step 1: skip all the rules of when to start a diet! It’s not Monday, it’s not after some upcoming holiday, I didn’t “finish up” everything in the fridge before starting, and while it is the first of the month, it’s also the day after THE box arrived. (Ok, I could have had it here faster- but two day shipping prices?? no way!)
So I’m at the end of day 1. I got to check off everything on my list of V-Diet tasks, shakes and sups. I probably spent a little too much time staring at the before pictures. That was a shock. Even when you think you know how bad it is, you still don’t. Really. It’s like hearing reports of an accident on the highway ahead of you and you’re picturing a couple of cars banged up on the side of the road, and what you actually have is a jet fuel truck burning so hot it’s melting an overpass. (Bonus points to anyone who gets that reference).
I’m looking forward to joining everyone here. As it’s past time to get to bed I’ll leave everyone with the fuel for my flame, and check in tomorrow!
ps- I’ll be changing rooms for the next pictures- peach skin against a peach colored wall and sunlight washout? I claim inadequate caffeine levels for that particular stupidity. Sorry.
