Alright, I’m creating my own v-diet log because I feel bad for hijacking other v-dieters threads and I need my own place to put my information and thoughts during this period. Hopefully folks will check it out and offer thoughts or suggestions.
I’m starting my second week of the diet (11.6-12.9). The first week I went from 195 to 190. Of course I inched up a couple of pounds over the weekend but that’s cool, no worries. My goal is to get down into the 180s range and it’d be great if I could break the 170s but I won’t be disappointed if I don’t.
Struggled the first weekend with no solid meals. It’s just a mental will power adjustment that I’m going to have to make. I’ve done the diet before so I know what to expect. Seems like the structure of the work week makes the diet easier and all the social and free time of the weekend makes it more difficult. Anyway, recognizing that hopefully helps me have more willpower during those tough times.
Of course staying on schedule reduces the chances that you’ll be tempted to cheat and eat a solid meal on the diet. I try and stick to a 3 hour interval between shakes. As long as I can plan ahead and make sure this happens I’m good.
So, here goes week 2.
Weight this morning: 192 lbs.
