I’ve decided to take on the V-Diet because I’m sick of my diet fixations, thinking only of numbers (calories, hours spent on the treadmill, etc) and lacking mindfulness.
I’m looking at this as a mental vacation from nutrition/exercise to focus on other things: school, picking up a hobby or two, listening to my body for once, having a life maybe possibly? I’ve become so obsessed it’s keeping me from accomplishing much, from having any discipline. It’s keeping me from having a life.
I can’t wait to see the physical changes too of course. A couple years ago I was slender but not as firm as I’d like, did some modeling… eventually crashed and burned due to eating too few calories and doing way too much cardio for several months.
Oh, and using stimulants the entire time. I stopped when my doctor diagnosed me with adrenal fatigue in January. I’ve been in a pathetic binge cycle, unable to get back on the wagon, feeling more and more disgust with my figure and lack of self control.
I’m a 22 year old college student earning an AS, planning to major in exercise science, studying for the NSCA exam and working at Starbucks. I work opening shifts on weekends plus the occasional weekday afternoon/evening. Keeps me active, especially since I usually walk to/from work as well (1/2 mile each way.)
I’m starting bright 'n early tomorrow. Feeling nervous and excited, not quite ready, but I NEED to make a change.
