Week 1 is down, and it’s pretty much like I remembered. On my way home last night and I had a real hankering for wings, and knew that I could eat them and still stay under my calorie limitations, but also knew that they wouldn’t be as satiating. So I went home and baked my chicken breast, steamed my spinach, and made rice.
Was coaching in a tournament this weekend, so while all my colleagues were eating lunch, I poured some water into my shake bottles, and drank my lunch.
One of their wives had noticed this and asked me about it. Then told me that one of the moms from the team had asked her a couple of months ago if I had been losing weight.
So it would seem that I’m not the only one seeing a change with the V-diet.
Spent all week eating either steak or chicken breast for dinner, along with rice and spinach, and I was very close to my target calories each day. If I went over, it was by less than 50, and there were days when I was under my target by 50 calories, so it evened out over the week.
Weight is at 191.8
Bodyfat% is 28.8
Waist is at 37
Hips are at 38
I’m not too concerned about my weight, but what’s annoying to me is the little roll around my lower midsection, the love handles and the pooch.
Now I have to take responsibility for that, I have not been as consistent on my NEPA walks as I should be, so I’m going to be buckling down on that this week.
But that area has always been a problem for me.
When I first started putting on fat, back in my mid 20’s, the love handles were the first thing to show up. I know that there is some evidence that spot reduction may work, any ideas for getting rid of these dreaded love handles?
