Started my second round of the V-Diet this morning. Round one was in October, went from 297-280 in a month. Have been holding pretty steady since then although I did weigh in at 284 this morning. I am a 44 year old former college football player who needs to get back in shape to keep up with my teenage son.
We are supposed to go to Philmont Scout Ranch this June and I have to weigh under 267 or they won’t let me on the trail. I would like to be in the 250-255 range by then. My conditioning has been going well, we had a training backpacking trip this and I was well ahead of many of the leaders who have made their weight. However I still have to make the weight so here we go.
I didn’t have too much of a problem the first time with the diet. My problem with food is that I always eat what is easy. A shake is easy, unfortunately at lunch often a drive through is also easiest so I do too much of that. Hopefully I can change this.
Here are Day 1 measurements:
R Thigh 23
L Thigh 24
Walked 4 miles up and down hill carrying a 25 lb pack this morning for NEPA. Have to keep my hiking up. Plan to lift on T-Th-Sat as this fits my schedule better. More concerned with weight loss than muscle gain so will be hitting the NEPA hard.
