Hi my name is Steven, and I have decided I am going to go on the V-Diet. My story starts in June of 2007. I had finally realized that my weight was holding me back from being all that I could be, and once I got into a 40 inch waist for jeans, I realized things need to change. I was about 6’1’’ and 240lbs. I started to greatly watch what I eat, as I limited my carbs and upped my protein. No desserts, junk food, or anything I considered bad for me.
This, along with starting to work out consistantly greatly benefited me. I was about 225lbs when I started, and by the time August rolled around I was around 195-200lbs. I looked a lot better, and while everyone said I looked great, I’m not looking for average. My mom definitely seemed to have a complacent attitude toward my weight loss and she didn’t realize why I would want to lose any more weight.
However, senior year of high school started and I started to eat junk food and whatever else I wanted again. Thing is, I didn’t gain any weight. I’m not sure if its due to my metabolism being relatively high as I’m still a kid, but I was eating crap again and stayed the same. When New Years finally rolled around I decided I wanted to get back after it, and I started carb cycling for some reason. This lasted about 3 weeks, but I got down to around 185lbs.
Then I decided I needed to add some more mass, so I started taking cell mass (form of creatine) and begain a mini bulk. I ate semi dirty on this bulk, but not completely terrible. I also becaome stronger. My bench went up about 20-25lbs in about a month is just one example. My squat went up but I never maxed out on that so I’m not completely sure. I’m also about 193lbs right now.
Now I’m at a point where I do have a little muscle on me, but I want to lose all the excess fat that is bothering me. I know I could continue to bulk up but I don’t want any more fat gains. I want to lean out. The V-Diet sounds like the perfect plan. Proms in May and I would like to look completely lean in my tux. (A focus of mine is my butt and thighs, as while my waist can easily handle 34-33 inch pants, it always seems tight in that area) So that is a goal of mine (along with finding a date). I am going to be extremely dedicated, and despite whatever challenges I face I’m going to not let up on this diet. I will provide daily updates on what happened that day with my diet and my experiences mentally with the diet. I start on Sunday. I hope to get in the 175lb range. Any advice is appreciated.
