Hi, I'm brand new, just downloaded Freebee's RT4 book this weekend and I'm all set to start tomorrow.
However, I've been reading up on some of this forum and watched a few youtube videos and now I'm petrified that I'm going to pile on the weight :-( I'm 5'7" and about 154lbs (70kg) and I'm so sick of being overweight that I really need it to change soon. I'm working out five days a week, three days is a steady jog and two days I work weights with a personal trainer, I also cycle everywhere because who has time for car traffic?!
Everyone seems to reference this weight gain as a 'healing' phase, but what is the body doing during that time? What is healing?
I've been vegan for a year, I don't eat exceptionally well but I don't eat terribly either, I've never had an eating disorder and until this week have had a pretty stable diet of fruit smoothie in the morning, salad/tofu/quinoa lunch and roasted veggies for dinner (or the occasional vegan take out).
If this will work for me I will 100% commit, but I'm starting to fret that in six months time I'll be 30lbs heavier and I just don't know where on my body I'm going to store that :-(
I'd really appreciate any reassurance that might be out there?
Thanks for reading,
