So yesterday was Day 7 for me of the V-Diet. I took measurements and weighed myself and took pictures again, and had a couple observations.
In the first week, my scale weight barely budged from 192 to 189.2. I’m not irritated all that much, because I feel this is probably attributable to muscle gain. My biceps are noticeably bigger and more defined when I flex, along with other muscles.
I also took measurements, and I haven’t added up the total yet, but I am pretty sure that I had an increase in my measurements. The only place that was actually less was my waist at largest. Which I’m cool with. Again, I’ll chalk that up to muscle growth.
Didn’t really notice much difference in pictures though.
Now, I’m not really all that discouraged. I can tell all of my clothes are looser, I’ve gotten compliments on my change so far, and I’ve dropped the last two notches on my belts around my waist, even though my waist hasn’t gotten any smaller according to the tape measure.
So couple of things. Has anyone had a V-Diet where they saw almost no visible changes in the first week? It seems that everyone who’s been super successful had HUGE drops in the first week, often more drop in weight in the first day or two than I have had all week. Also, has anyone experienced a situation where muscle growth has outpaced fat loss, thus having an increase in scale weight on the V-Diet?
For the record, I am NOT discouraged. Just curious. Regardless of my results up to this point, I’ve never FELT better in my life. I feel absolutely incredible. And the way I feel I know is much more important than how I look. Thanks all.
PS - I have not strayed from the V-Diet at all. All Biotest supplements, doing all the workouts (well, except for the very first one, but all the other ones I have, and that was only because I was out of town, in a town of 4000 with no gym within 60 miles.)
