Today was day one of the V-diet. It was more challenging than I expected. I decided to take it on because I was constantly making poor choices and eating on strange schedules. This seems like a great way to get a regimented diet and exercise plan and start forming better habits and a healthy lifestyle.
I plan on posting some photos and measurements and thought this would be a great spot to get some support. One of my neighbors felt like she needed to make some changes as well and is doing the diet with me, so I do have additional outside support. But, I found this forum to be encouraging!
The main things I struggled with today - feeling sick to my stomach, slight headache which did finally subside, and I had a really hard time drinking the number of shakes I calculated that I needed in a day.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to get through these first couple of days (I think after 3 or 4 days I should adjust)?
I am currently 5’8" and weigh 150 lbs. My weight goal is 138 - 130, but ultimately the scale really doesn’t matter. The visual results and healthy habits are more important to me than the number.
I would like to strengthen and firm the muscle that I do have and trim down in inches in my waist, thighs, and arms.
Also, I can’t remember the last time I did a pull up - I would love to be able to accomplish that by the end of all this!
Thanks for the support in advance! I know I’m strong willed enough to do this, I just want to stay positive!
