Being fat is no fun, especially when others think that you aren’t because they just can’t see the fat you’re carrying. That’s my issue and something I want to change. My whole life I’ve been fat and after high school I decided to get fatter…like 250lbs fat.
Over the course of a year I managed to drop down to about 190lbs and have hovered around that weight ever since. My first V-Diet attempt allowed me to drop down to 180lbs. Since then I have gained some weight (intentionally) because I haven’t been lifting weights for about 2 years till about 6 months ago due to a shoulder issue - couldn’t even bench over 95lbs! It just felt really fun to get back under a barbell, kick some ass, and then eat like an animal.
My first Velocity Diet attempt failed…miserably which is why I only lost 8lbs. I cheated constantly and drank a lot of alcohol everyday.
However, this time around things are going much differently. This time is different, this time I’m serious. The pic is a before (left) and after (right), sorry for the different lighting as the before pic was taken at 5am with my phone. Both pics were taken under the same scenario though, just woke up…no liquids or shakes consumed.
BEFORE - DAY 1 3/21/11
Biceps: L-14.75" R-14.75"
Thigh: L-24.25" R-24.5"
AFTER - DAY 7 3/27/11
Biceps: L-14.5" R-14.5"
Thigh: L-24" R-24"
Like a dumbass I kind of stumbled into V-Diet round 2 quite disorganized, although I did have all my supplements in order and ready to go. So no measurements were taken because I couldn’t find the damn tape measure to save my life till Day 4 3/24/11.
Of course there could be variations due to error however the only measurements I care about are the Navel and Weight at the moment. I didn’t have time to get the list of all the measurements but no sense crying over spilt milk.
Summary - 10lbs and 1" lost in 1 week or 7 days. I’m happy with that. In the pics the lighting is different but there’s a noticeably difference in the upper and lower abs. My lower ab fat has always, always been an issue with me. So that’s the area I’m focusing on when I look in the mirror.
In following posts I’ll provide a quick breakdown of things that happened during the days.
