Hello, everyone! I’m coming to you from work (shh, don’t tell) on Day One of my first V-Diet! I woke up bright and early this morning, downed some HOT-ROX, took the dog on a brisk walk for my first NEPA, took my weight, measurements, and pictures, and scarfed down my first breakfast shake.
I gotta say, that was a hell of a way to start a Monday morning. Here’s some info about me:
I’m a 23-year-old female who is 5’3" and should probably weigh around 115 but instead weighs around 130.
I was down to the low 120s and becoming fairly toned by the end of college in June '09, but have been basically sedentary ever since. I work a mostly-desk job as a chemical engineer in Columbus, OH. I have a dog, and he’s chubby too. (They do say that owners and dogs start to look alike…!)
I’m no stranger to lifting, but it’s been about 6 months since the last time I did it. Today is the first workout day for my V-Diet, and I have no doubt that I will be in a world of hurt tomorrow. My main hobby is belly dancing, and my classes are on Tuesday nights - I’m sure my teacher will be wondering why I’m moving in such a fashion!
The morning walks with the dog will be rather chilly, but it’s definitely the best time of day for me to get in my NEPA. Barney, my 85 lb mutt, gets awfully protective of me when other dogs go by… and nobody else in my Ohio suburb is batty enough to be walking their dog before sunrise in February. It’ll be interesting to see how much weight he loses because of “Mom’s” V-Diet, since he’ll be going on more regular walks.
Anyway, if you made it this far, I thank you for reading my novel. I’ll post up the pictures and measurements from this morning when I get home tonight - right now I just wanted to go ahead and get my log thread started. Day One is smooth sailing so far!
