So after being back on Dukan for the past 6.5 weeks I can safely say… Today I am under 180lbs!
A few stats:
Restart Start Weight: 207.6lbs
Days Back: 45 days
Total Lost: 28.0lbs!!!
Percent Lost: 14.61%
Current Weight: 179.6lbs!!!
I weighed myself this morning and I was honestly floored. I had to re-weigh myself quite a few times I was so happy and stoked to be under 180lbs. I am almost at the weight I was when I met my amazing boyfriend (only 10 more lbs to go!) and I am only 27.8lbs away from my lowest ever weight of 151.8lbs… the weight I was for one day last September! Which is really exciting because you know what… that’s less than 30lbs away… and I am CONFIDENT I can hit it before September of this year… Which is all kinds of exciting!
I wonder what I will look like under 150lbs…
I wonder if it will get more difficult, I mean… I haven’t been under 150lbs ever… not since I was like 13 years old! I do not ever remember being in the 140s! Ever! This is going to be tough… I AM SO EXCITED!!!
Sample from yesterdays diet… I lost 1.4lbs.
I ate two cups of 35cal yogurt in the morning, with 1tbsp of splenda brown sugar mixed in.
I had supper at my grandparents with the boyfriend. It was so good and I have a TON of leftover veggies and stuff. :) It was Dukan bread (I will post the recipe as I try to recreate it later this week) and shrimp salad loaded with veggies.
Had a really nice visit, we were both talking about how lovely it was to talk to my grandparents and to have a meal with family that was Dukan friendly and delish, had a nice coffee after dinner and got the recipe for the delish dill Dukan bread. All kinds of wonderful feelings. :)
So today I am using the leftover veggies and we are having taco salad. We take lean ground turkey, cook it then add low sodium taco seasoning. Dump it on the veggies, it tastes like a restaurant meal honestly. Like a cheat meal but it isn’t!
I have been tracking my calories on livestrong.com as most of you know. Have been doing it every day for 3 weeks. I like that the more calories I eat in a day, of lean protein and other Dukan allowed foods… the more weight I drop usually. It’s weird. But I’d like to experiment with this more. If I’m hungry eat, and don’t worry so much about the calories. I’ll let you know after I get more data!
Lastly! I know I promised you guys mine and my boyfriends -10% photo, but you know what I think I’m going to wait and lose 10 more pounds, hit 20% lost total and then put up those pics as well. The 10% shows a big difference, but if you wait maybe 2 weeks, I’ll have the 20% up and you will see a HUGE difference, I mean now at 15% lost total I feel and look way better, huge difference. I think it will all be much more motivating with the 20% pic too.
Anyways, that is it for today. Good luck with your next week! You can do it!
