Hi all. I competed in my first figure comp back in July 2008, then ate everything that wasn’t bolted down for 2 months following my comp. I managed to put on 12kg in that time… then gradually the weight crept on until I stabilised at 20kg over my comp weight for the past 18 months or so!
Medically I am in my “healthy weight range”. I train every weekday in the gym, like a good figure competitor does in the “off season”. Thing is I’ve let this thing go on way too long. Haven’t been able to break the binge cycle that started two years ago following my comp. I’ve started prepping for two comps since, and quit both halfway through the prep because I just couldn’t get my head around it all again.
Comp or no comp, the moral to the story is that I don’t like what I see in the mirror… and I think life is way too short to spend a single day hating what I see in the mirror.
A friend from America told me about the Velocity Diet. I have to say I was skeptical… but more so extremely concerned that it was a starvation diet, would result in a sluggish metabolism and general fatigue. But, I’ve sat down over the past week and have read every word on here about the diet (still working through the forums!) and have to say I am intrigued. So, what have I got to lose other than some ugly fat?
It’s one month out of my whole life, so herein starts the experiment! I am doing this properly, so, as soon as my Biotest supps arrive (ordered tonight, should arrive by the end of the week), I will take my before shots and measurements, weigh in, and log it all so I remain accountable through the whole thing…
