I’m sitting here so excited about my very first post, but not knowing where to begin.
I just became a member of T-Nation, though I have been visiting the site for over 4 years. When I first heard about T-Nation I was in my freshman year at college and weighed 225lbs. Since then I have successfully lost 55lbs and health and fitness is a major part of my life.
However for the past year or so I have hit a major plateau. I still have about 15 - 20lbs to lose, and every time I start a new program, training or diet wise, I get easily discouraged if I don’t see a 5lb weight loss in the first week. I know that it takes time, but for some reason I just have lost all patience.
My boyfriend has been telling me I should do the Velocity Diet ever since I first plateaued, and every time I complain about my last 15-20lbs. Finally the day has come where I am just absolutely fed up and need to get my bad habits in check. My supplements came in today, so I will officially begin the v-diet tomorrow. I am SO excited. Here are my before measurements.
Natural waist: 29.0
Waist at belly button: 32.0
Upper thigh: 24.25 / 24.25
Mid thigh: 23.75 / 23.0
Arm: 11.5 / 12.25 (I know huge difference!)
Arm flexed: 13.5 / 13.5 (don’t know how that happened)
So those are the measurements that I will be taking weekly, along with pictures at the beginning and the end of the 28 days, and then again at the end of the transition phase for full comparison.
I always come onto the forums to keep up with everyone’s posts and now I can leave comments. I would greatly appreciate support, and I will stay updated as much as possible.
