Well this is how I look now.  A long way from where I was three years ago.  I’ve been stuck somewhere between 185 and 195 for about a year now.  I took these pictures on Monday morning when I weighed 195 lbs and my waist measure 39 inches.  Here are the side and front shot as well.

Well, here we are 28 days later.  Almost a whole month, since I was more overweight than I am comfortable admitting to.  How much did I progress in 28 days?  How far have I come in a little less than a month?  Well here are some stats, and the pictures follow below the break. (FYI: I will publish a post in the next few days reflecting on my experience and offering some advice for those who follow in my footsteps).

Day 1/Day 8/Day 17/Day 28

  • Blood Pressure: 127/72…….119/61……….117/60……..109/64
  • Pulse: 67……..64………..61………..62
  • Weight: 186.2……181.8……….178………173.6
  • Body Fat: 26.5………24.5………23.2……….22.5
  • Belly: 38″………37″………..35.5″………….34.75″
  • Hips: 39″…………38″………..38″………….38″

So that means:

  • Weight Lost: 12.6lbs (roughly  .5 lbs per day)
  • Body Fat % Lost: 4%
  • Belly Shrunk By: 3.25″

Well, I only have two days left in this Velocity Diet experiment.   I’ve fallen behind on my blogging as I’ve taken on more academic work.  However, be sure to stay tuned for my BIG results post in about two days.  Wait until you see how many inches I’ve dropped off my waistline in 4 weeks!

As for the activity you missed out on (more…)

As I just realized that I forgot to post results for week two, here you go.  I didn’t do full measurements, but I hit the important numbers.

Day 1/Day 8/Day 17

  • Blood Pressure: 127/72…….119/61……….117/60

Can’t say I don’t prefer training in warmer weather, but all-in-all it wasn’t that bad.

The workout was hard and I pushed myself further than before with shorter rest periods between exercises. The workout consisted of three sessions, separated by 5 minutes of rest between each session.

Session I

  • Sledgehammer Training: 3 minutes (80 strikes from Right side, 40 strikes from left side)/60 seconds rest
  • Tire Flipping: 3 minutes (about 20 flips)/60 seconds rest
  • 1-legged Squat: 3 minutes (12 reps each side, 8 reps each side)/60 seconds rest
  • Sandbag Press: 3 minutes/60 seconds rest
  • Tire Drag: 3 minutes
  • REST 5 Minutes

Session II
  • Sledgehammer Training: 2 minutes/60 seconds rest (more…)

Today is my cheat day…YAY!  So I will also reward myself by writing a short post.

My back is still pretty sore from two days ago, so I am delaying my GPP training until tomorrow.  Instead I did a workout composed entirely of push-ups and chin-ups (with varying grip/hand positions)- six sets of each.  It felt good and avoided aggravating my lower back.

Also, I am happy to report that my weight is down around 178.8 lbs, my waist measurement is about 36.5″, and my body fat is  22.9%.  Don’t forget that when I started twelve days ago I was 186.2 lbs, had a 38 inch waist, and my body fat percentage was right around 26.5%.  That means that in twelve days I lost 7.4 lbs, 1.5 inches from my waist, and  3.6% body fat!

See you tomorrow!
