The team of GetBMWParts (and a lackey from the corporate office) are getting together to tackle V-Diet. We are comprised of two guys, Jason and Evan of GetBMWparts (who are already buff workout-aholics) and a chick, Erica (corporate lackey who has been partying since she turned 30 in June).
I, Erica, am writing this first entry on our thread since I am the first to start. I begin Thursday, February 25 because I have to go to NYC on Friday, March 26 and think it will be easier if I can at least have one HSM/day at that point vs. not being able to eat at all.
It would be kind of awkward being at some nice NYC restaurant for dinner sipping on water and sneaking into the bathroom to drink my shake. (Though obvi I will be doing that for lunch - but it’s lunch…not so formal.) The guys start on the 1st and we plan to do our HSMs together each week, so we don’t buy/waste food.
Evan and Jason told me about V-Diet and after some research decided to join them on it and am looking forward to starting. I will let them tell their own stories…but, as for me, I am ready to kick start and get rid of the squishy. I planned to do that before I turned 30, but then I got caught up in the “last times of your 20s” so did a little more partying than I had originally planned.
Of course, once I turned 30 - I was 30 n’ Flirty so had to continue celebrating. Needless to say, now that I am 8 months past my 30th bday, the celebrating has caught up with me in the form of 15lbs gained and the bummer is I was still 15lbs from goal weight when I turned 30! Ugh.
I know myself and when I do the slow and steady method, I can do well and lose about 15-20 lbs, but I usually still have 15 to go but I am SO burnt out on counting every friggin’ calorie and being no-fun Erica…and believe me, I am fun - so the no-fun version is not my fave. I am hoping that V-Diet will kickstart that weight loss and help me get that first 10-15lbs off in month one so I have two more months of focus to get off that last 10-15 before I burn out.
Don’t get me wrong…once I burn out, I don’t change my lifestyle, which is already pretty healthy. Minus the last 8 months of celebrating - that was due to the whole 30 thing and by June, I will be 31 so I totally have to grow up - I am usually a complex carb + protein + veggie at every meal kinda gal. I typically work out 4-5 times per week and am active on the weekends, so I am not fearful of becoming some twinkie eating slacker post V-Diet.
Alright…that’s enough…will put up my info tomorrow. Gotta get my roommate to measure and stuff. Jason/Evan - if you share any of this I will kill you and squash your bidness plan (ok, maybe in reverse order)…I gots connections!!
