I feel waaay better today. I;m glad I took measurements that day because I looked at them a few times yesterday during a not so good day.
I am really excited to keep going now! 10 days today and I have been adhering to the plan!

This is not only great for my body for my mind as well. Actually the changes in my brain are what I love so much about the velocity diet right now. I just can’t believe how diminished my cravings are!

I love the HSM but when it comes, it comes. I am not even really craving that! I am a former binge eater. I would eat good till about 8pm then chow down. I would workout like crzy to maintain my 155 lbs. I did the FLTS then this and this is so key to rapid changes in yourself and your body!!

female topic listed below (probably skip if your a guy unless looking for info for a chick)
I cannot believe I didn’t have issues on the time of the month! That is NOT like me at all. Normally when i am hormonal , I get up in the middle of the night and chow salt, chocolate, and cheese. I didn’t’ even crave it! ( I did crave the peanut butter and that was some discipline not to eat over my limit in my shake)
I did have all chocolate and banana MD though :smiley: Sooo tasty. Definitely my favorites.
I had some low energy and lightheadedness and took it easy. I took off the NEPA for my most hormonal day. Back to normal today and feel great. I am really glad I did not give in to those cravings and I can’t wait to take new pics to compare. I can tell in my clothes for sure!

congrats!!! hormones suck!!!

cant wait to see your results!

I CANNOT wait till my HSM tomorrow :smiley:
I have been so hungry since day 10.
I think because I had been working with some 3 year olds and boy they sure get your metabolism up at times …
I have been strictly following the V-Diet too with my NEPA and shakes. Had a great workout yesterday and look forward to beating my times on my V-Burn Challenge!
Goin strong still.

Nearing end of week 2!

Definitely think this was the hardest week. I had an easier time the first week due to excitement of doing something about my fat loss.

…this week I really have to take a few minutes throughout the day to refocus my motivations and just do it.
Heard a lot of
"if your taking in healthy solid food everyday , you can’t be healthy"

BS! That is why they are still struggling everyday to lose those 5 lbs and I did it already ! I think my nutrition is better then most people who are negative towards me on this diet anyways. How is eating French Fries and a hamburger better than my flax, pb and Metabolic Drive?

I reread Chris’s article on Toxic People in the tips section many times.

So my husband and I are going out for my HSM today :smiley:
(after I do the V Burn Challenge of course)

I am trying to find restaurants nutritional info in our area. I know that and dailyplate list them but I find it easier to just get a copy of the menu and bring it with me :smiley:
Planning is wonderful!

I found on the Outback Steakhouse’s website, they have low carb, high protein ideas!! I LOVE THIS! Just for their website, I am going to eat here. Plus it tastes good and they have a smaller steak since my appetite is smaller…

I am also finding if you ask about diabetic options rather than nutritional info, they are WAAAAAAYYYY more accomidating. I don’t know why people who want to know what they are eating are treated like crap unless there is a health condition.
I mean seriously that is why America is so damn obese in the first place. Crazy values… I could rant and post for days on this.

Funny how acceptable it is to be diabetic (I am not btw-- just looking for sugar and carb info in food) and NOT acceptable to be healthy and ask what nutritional info is in food prepared by a restaurant.

yay for HSM and gonna go kick ass on my challenge! Beat last weeks 29 minutes! GO ME!

Workout #7 (I always lose my deadlift one! I must put it somewhere in my gym when I am done!)

Workout #8: 06/27/2009
25 minutes!!!YAY! shaved off 4 minutes!

I am going to do measurements update tomorrow morning. I forgot the last 2 days…

OK so I measured anyways. This was after my first shake of the day and I ate my HSM last night.
I hope it is readable. I have an excel spreadsheet I am using!

I was getting down because I only lost 1 pound since last week then I took measurements! HOLY SH(#! I lost a total of 12.11 inches so far in 15 days without any strength sacrifice!

My husband was gone for the last 2 weeks and when he saw me not only was it totally awesome night but he asked for all the info on the V-Diet too! We both were those train like crazies but we only ate clean about 60% of the time and now we are gonna get ripped together!!! YAY! I am elated and my post is probably all jacked but now I have inspired someone else and my hard discipline is totally paying off.

Fantastic work,you must feel great and so proud.Keep going and we might see your face!!!

Day17 pics! WOW! I can’t even believe my pooch! Very motivating. I have a long holiday weekend with TOXIC PEOPLE! At least my HSM is on July 4th. If it wasn’t though, I would not stray-- This is totally working.

OMG!!! I am so motivated by your thread I can’t believe you lost 12+ inches only halfway through! I’m so glad I got all the supps instead of half-assing it like I did last year

I start tomorrow, my goal weight is 140 (i’m 157 now) by August 20 when I go to VEGAS yay


You look awesome - congrats on sticking to the program.

Today is 10 days for me and I am so impressed at my energy level and how fit, strong and toned I am getting. This is one of the best programs for reprogramming the mind about foods and taste buds.

Keep going,your results are awe inspiring.brilliant.

I was listening to a podcast FitMind, FitBody by Yuri Elkaim (epsiode #10) about reasons why you are doing this. Piggy back that with all of Chris Shugarts great articles and I felt like I needed to really write down my reasons why. I should have done this on day 1 but now it a good a time as any.

Sticking with the plan through transistion is harder because now I have choices of what to do. It is great but again at the same time I am missing the routine and ease of just making a shake. So to keep motivated and not totally binge on crap I keep this list in my pocket. Sounds kinda nerdy but hey it is working great!

  • I will get to goal of 135lbs and I can do it!
  • I will look like I should. I train a lot and it doesn’t show because of my diet.
  • I will get more out of my training
  • Regular bowel , most don’t like to discus this but the Vdiet totally made me regular.
  • I will accomplish something hard
  • I will prove to myself I AM SELF-DISCIPLINED
  • I will feel lighter when I run
  • I will fit in my hot jeans
  • I will not have to train 2 or more hours a day to make up for my shi&#Ty diet
  • I will have more time for other hobbies, tasks, family and friends
  • I will not be controlled by dieting and losing weight anymore!
    -I will get in there, lose the fat and get out and MAINTAIN!

well that is my short motivation list keeping me on track. I want to do it again in about 4 more weeks so I can lose the last 5. So far I gained only 2 lbs back (probably water ) but doing great and can’t say enough for the feeling of accomlishment.

If you have it in you, I highly recommend this , not only as a diet but a psychological change about weight loss in general. You don’t have to struggle for years (just 28 days ;o)

That last post is very inspiring.Where did you find the fitmind,fitbody???I think i’ll do the same with a list
