First off a big Texas Howdy! I’ve been reading Testosterone for a few years now, not coincidentally almost exactly as long as I’ve been lifting weights. I’ve been a bit of a nerd all my life and was never very athletic, but really that’s a poor excuse for having been sedentary with poor dietary habits. So a few years ago when I reached my peak at 215 with a 36 inch waist (at age 20!)
I decided that it was time to at least look more like an athlete. So as any good nerd would do I read for hours before ever lifting a weight!
So using training plans from this site and Biotest supplements I got down to 165 and a 31 inch waist, but still looked like a nerd. Over time I’ve put on some more weight (most of it muscle…I hope) and stand at 6’1 and weigh 195 lbs. Unfortunately I’ve been to relaxed in my eating me thinks because I only feel comfortable shirtless if I suck in my gut.
At the same time, I’ve got my sister who is now half way through completing Med School. Before getting accepted, she worked for years as an ambulance driver and between that job (look at the average paramedic and you’ll realize they literally run on Big Gulps) and school related stress she’s gained more than she ever wanted to.
So together, starting May 18th, we are going through the V-Diet so that I can lean up and see all that muscle I’ve worked for and she can slim down and see those toes! (JK sis) I’ll post my pics and stats later in this week before the diet starts. I’ve read others’ threads on this board and I know that I can count on ya’ll for support.
