Good morning! So as of this morning I have been back on the Dukan Diet for 21 days: 5 days of Attack and 16 days on Cruise.
- I have lost 16.8lbs.
- I have 23.8-33.8lbs to lose before November 3rd.
- My competition is 62 days away or 9 weeks away as of yesterday and 2 months away as of tomorrow.
- My weight loss has not slowed down, as of this morning I have lost an average of 0.8lbs a day so far.
- I have lost 5.6lbs a week on average.
- I am only 1.8lbs away from my lowest weight!!!
I have been in ketosis on and off for over a week now, but with only 3tbsp of oat bran every morning as my carb source I can tell you honestly that my energy levels at the gym have not dropped and I am still lifting heavier and heavier every time trying to build my muscle-mass.
I have so far stayed consistent with my September goal to do 90 minutes of stairs every day I do weight training (well so far it’s only been one day… but that’s a start and it IS something to celebrate.)
I am happy you guys, I had a great, busy day yesterday. I went bike riding, which I haven’t done in over 5 years with an old friend, I spent the night at home just relaxing, I worked out in the morning and had a pretty good talk with one of the guys at my gym.
And today we do it all over again! I need to rush out so I can workout, then I’m having lunch with a good friend and then I’m working out again. I want to go to the movies after that and then we are having a huge party at my house. Tomorrow I have off from work, I will be working out in the morning with my trainer, then who knows! I want to keep super busy and do more stuff! I haven’t had even the most remote want to cheat so far in this experience and I feel so happy! Compare this feeling to when I was following the typical bodybuilder diet, I was always so mad, angry with myself for being weak. I had cravings all the time, I kept justifying binge-eating to myself. I was floundering, lost, guilty… I was gaining weight and not losing it and I was embarrassed.
Yesterday at the gym one of the big-bodybuilder guys told me I was looking good! That he could tell I have lost weight, and that I had an hourglass shape coming through! That was such a great feeling. I am so happy right now you guys. You know what… my mom was right. Without the pressure of food and my birthday without-food I had an amazing day yesterday, and my “actual birthday” in November will be even better… since I will be celebrating with my family, and cake, and champagne that I have so deserved over these weeks of strict dieting and hours upon hours at the gym.
Make good choices, I hope you all have as amazing days as I have been having. Smile, enjoy the weather and don’t cheat!
