Down 2lbs Since Yesterday!

ImageLast night I went out to dinner celebrating one of my dearest friends who is moving away. I knew we were going to a restaurant so I planned ahead and looked up the menu online. I picked the one thing off the menu that was even close to Dukan friendly, the cobb salad (without dressing) and ordered it. It was SO DELICIOUS and filling! I didn’t feel left out hanging out with all my friends and I wont remember my good friends going away party as that time I sat at a table drinking diet soda and watching my friends eat yummy BBQ food while my stomach was grumbling and I had a miserable time. So it’s a win win!

Yes, the salad did have cheese, I ate it because there really wasn’t a lot there and it all just looked so good. This morning I weighed myself and I lost 2 full pounds. SCORE!

So no, I didn’t have a supplement day yesterday, but I stayed on track and lost the weight, so I will have a redo of day… what am I on now… day 4? Today. I didn’t cheat because of cravings, I ate a Dukan friendly meal at a BBQ restaurant, had an amazing time and planned ahead for success! I feel really amazing!

I started back on Dukan 130 days ago. In that time I have allowed myself to cheat, I have fallen off the wagon for a few days at a time, but mostly I have stuck with it to the tune of an average 1.57lbs lost per week and 022lbs per day. Total lost in 130 days: 29.0lbs and I am currently at my lowest weight during this time!

Plan ahead for success!!!

Supplement Experiment Day 3

Well would you look at that… the day 2 curse is passed and I didn’t cheat, actually… I had NO CRAVINGS the entire day! ZERO!

Hmmm… I guess I may be onto something afterall.

Today is day 3 and I’m feeling amaaaazing. Will update you on my total weight loss at the end of the full week because of fear of jinxing it… but VERY happy with the results so far. LIKE VERY. Pants are fitting much looser, belly is looking FLAT.

Who would have thought?

Oooh and there is a winner for the book giveaway… but that will be announced later today on my YouTube channel. ;) 

Good luck to everyone who entered, I can’t wait to announce my next giveaway!

Have a Dukan Day! Let’s see where this week of supplementation leads me! I honestly think I might get to a 10lbs loss!

As per request, what happened after day 2 of the Supplement Experiment?

Life got a bit stressful and I gave up, but stuck on Dukan, weight stayed approximately the same (a little bit of a gain from the pizza at day 2). I am back on now, currently doing day 2 (again). I didn’t want to jinx it by blogging or vlogging about it. ;) I don’t want to do another 2 days and then cheat and be in that position again.

I did lose almost 5lbs on the first day of this second try at the Supplement Experiment. It’s so weird how fast it drops when you are “juicing” or more like “Dukan juicing”.

Make sure to check out my YouTube channel for more daily information on Dukan and what I’m up to.

But yes, we are at a second day 2 of the Supplement Experiment with the same results as last time. Let’s see if I can pass through the Day 2 hump!

I feel pretty damn focused this time. I think I’ll be just fine. :)

Will write again tomorrow (promise!) to let you know how I did with this day 2 curse. ;)

Good Morning!

Hey,

So I started my new job. I work Mon-Fri 6-2. It is not bus accessible so I need to wake up at 3:30am every day, walk 40 minutes to meet up with a carpool, then get there half an hour early (this is the time the carpool arrives at my work) work 6-2 on my feet, then do the walk home and basically fall asleep at 6pm every night. :S

Funny story though… well first off my weight is dropping again (apparently standing on your feet in steel toes and walking 80 min a day is enough to get through a plateau, who’d a thunk it?) 

The funny story? So last night I went to bed at 6pm and woke up at 8pm. Well… I now know this, at the time all I saw was 8 and I FREAKED out… I started work on Tuesday and I was like… omg I am late and it’s only the third day of working! How is this going to look! I searched for my works phone number, I was crying, I was so guilty for missing the carpool and I hoped he hadn’t waited for too long. I couldn’t find my works number and I started on looking for a taxi number. Didn’t know if I just wanted to call in sick, then I decided to tell the truth, that my alarms just hadn’t gone off, and that I was so so sorry and guilty.

So I get upstairs to google the taxi information. Dreading this entire process, starting to get a headache, when my roommate says something to me about how he thought I had already gone to bed… I look at the time (it’s all military time on our computers and on my phone… which I had overlooked… even though I had stared at my phone for like 10 minutes trying to think of my works phone number.

Anyways… it was clearly the PM… I mean you could see the sun setting from my bedroom window for gosh’s sake! I was just too tired to think straight! I started crying again and went to bed, fell asleep instantly and woke up at 3:30am to my alarm like… wtf happened last night!

Ohhhh Lord. 

So right now it’s 4am and I’m just getting ready to leave, having downed 2 large coffees and packing a caffeine pill for later as a just in case.

I just keep thinking… the money is worthit… the money is worthit… although let’s be honest, my bad circulation, especially in the legs makes this whole thing almost unbearable. My varicose veins are screaming at me all day… but getting out of the house, keeping busy, and then the extra paycheck ontop of my boyfriends will be lovely.

AND I’m getting exercise, right? Right? Hoo. My achin’ leeggggsssss. -.-

Anyways, so we are almost 6 weeks back on Dukan. I’m at 25lbs lost! Which is fantastic. Almost back in the 170s! :)

Have a great weekend, I know I’ll be sleeping!

Weight Is Stagnant – Day 39

Two days in a row of perfect eating, but no walking, and gaining 0.2lbs both days. I haven’t been doing my daily walks since I scratched up the back of my heel really badly, and I’m starting a new job tomorrow morning and I don’t want to be in pain in my steel toe shoes. :S

It hurts really badly, to even put on my runners. I’ve been trying to heal it and just relax a bit, but my skin is so dry, it’s brutal. Anyways, so I don’t know if it’s because I’m not going on my walks that my weight has stagnated, or if it’s because after 39 days and a massive almost 10lbs loss last week my body is just adjusting.

Anyways, trying not to lose hope and fingers crossed for a loss tomorrow. Just going to keep doing what I’m doing and see if it works. I’m sure once I start working tomorrow, with waking up early and walking around and standing at work all day… it’ll start dropping again.

Will keep you posted!

Playing Around w/ Collages

Playing Around w/ Collages

Here is a bit of a collage of some before and after pics. Feeling pretty motivated to continue on this journey today, you know?
So both me and my boyfriend took before pics of this time around, underwear pics. We wanted to take more at 10% lost (which I hit this past week!) I want to upload those as well, but will wait until after this weekend when I finally get the pics taken by him. Anyways, enjoy these for now, this is what 8 months on the Dukan Diet with no cheating can do for you! :) <3 xoxo
