Dieting, dieting, dieting – once the initial novelty of trying a new diet has worn off and in the case of Dukan Diet you are off Attack phase and have moved onto cruise, the hard work really begins.
So on day 23 of my shedding for wedding dress diet journey here are my numbers:
Weight: 13st 51/2lbs (-12.5lbs)
Chest: 45.5″ (-1.5″)
Waist: 40.5″ (-1.5″)
Hips: 45.5″ (-2″)
My weight loss last week was small although this morning we do seem to have movement, so fingers crossed I am off and moving again and have done sticky weight again until next week.
On Cruise Phase you are only expected to loose 2lb a week so it is not a quick fix diet, but all those 2lbs add up!
I have settled into a routine for breakfast and lunch, for breakfast I have a little plate buffet either fish or meat from allowed food range. Lunch is when I have my galette maybe with dill and smoked salmon on top or on pv days, chicken and mushroom is good.
Dinner is where I have been experimenting and trying out new recipes. The biggest different to my cooking is the use of spices and marinades to add the flavour to the meat and fish, rather than rich sauces that I would have done in the past.
I am even eating fish on a regular basis! This is a huge move forward for me, not least as it is the bones in fish that I don’t like, but more that I was ignorant in how to cook fish properly and healthy. I have been looking at some different healthy eating websites and then converting recipes to become Dukan safe, I will post some more recipes going forward. I keep forgetting to take pictures as I am anxious to eat the food!
So far I have lost 12.5lbs so the 1 stone mark is hopefully coming soon. I am looking for suggestions from other dieters as to how you celebrated these big achievements to recognise the hard work that it takes to lose 1stone?
Please do let me know your suggestions, unfortunately my favourite of a nice meal and champagne doesn’t really fit this occasion!
How are you doing on your dieting journeys?
