I have been working at a desk job for the last nine years, and when I say desk I mean sitting all day long. I let myself go and ballooned up to 215 lbs and most of that was in the last 2 years. I had a pretty big health scare last summer and it forced me to adopt some major changes in my life. I started walking everyday and doing a better job of watching what I eat. I lost approximately 40 lbs while walking. I pretty much took the month of March off and ate whatever I wanted to. I also started doing some research about some sort of diet plan that I thought I would be able to stick to. I ran into the V-Diet and decided it would be worth the investment in myself to give it a shot.
I have tried all sorts of fitness plans in the past and have failed from lack of planning. This time I have decided to stick to the prescribed plan and bought everything I needed before starting the diet. I spent the last two weeks reading over the forums and many of the articles. After all of the reading, I decided I don’t really have any excuses. I’m single, I live alone and I have plenty of time on my hands. I officially started the V-Diet yesterday Monday April 27, 2009. It was a little tougher than I had anticipated, but I made it through the first day. Today has been much easier, relatively speaking when compared to yesterday.
I will post my before picks and measurements in the next post. I’m not really super comfortable doing that but hopefully it will keep me inspired.
