I know that most V-dieters are youngsters trying to get those abs to show up but there are some of us with a little more life experience who would like to shed some pounds. It used to be much easier to cut back and lose some weight but after certain age-related changes (hot flashes and more!), that became seemingly impossible.
I tried low carb, no carb, and someone else’s expensive shakes. I had no luck and felt like crap.
My son went from chubby to amazing thanks to the V-Diet so I finally decided I would try it. I figured I’d probably live to see the end of March so why not arrive at April 1 with fewer pounds.
Day 1 - fine, I can do this
Day 2 - fuzzy, I may not make it to April 1, can’t think, want to go back to bed
Day 3 - better, I might be able to make it if I don’t have to do any hard thinking.
Day 4 - hey, I’m alive - actually feeling pretty good. I think I should have lost at least 10 pounds by now but that’s probably unreasonable.
Day 5 - Great day - creativity back, energy back, chocolate shakes are way too thick. Chris replied to my question about a little bouillon by telling me I couldn’t have any. Fine. I won’t. I’ll do the plan but I had better lose some weight.
Day 6 - Feeling great. Didn’t even wake up hungry. Tomorrow is HSM day. I thought I would be craving all sorts of things but not so much. My blender is dead so I have to shake the shakes. That means I can’t blend the peanut butter into my last shake so I just eat it straight. If you would have told me a week ago that 2 T of peanut butter would be a satisfying snack, well, it is. AND, drum roll here, I have lost 7 pounds and inches everywhere (except thighs - come on thighs!.
Thanks Chris. I have 3 weeks to go and expect continued success.
Everyone who’s thinking about starting or on Day 2 or 3 and thinking about quitting, do start, don’t quit. It’s not that hard and it gets better.
Success to all V-Dieters!!
