24-Hour Weight Loss: 2 pounds (YAY!!!!)
Total Weight Loss: 2.5 pounds
Well, I’m really, really excited to be down 2.5 pounds so far! That was pretty easy. Here’s how my day went yesterday.
I walked 4 miles in the morning, briskly, even slow jogging part of it. As I walked I listened to the Dukan Diet book on tape, and learned that I didn’t really follow the Attack phase properly on day one. Accordingly, I’m counting yesterday — New Year’s Day — as day 1. I’m still going to do five attack days.
What is hardest for me to avoid is sauces and condiments, followed by veggies.
I felt absolutely fine yesterday, but was a bit at loose ends because I made the decision to just putter around the house, watch football with my husband, and not really do anything. I did work a tiny bit (I work from home), but really, the day kind of dragged on.
Today is a work day and my assistant will be here. The days typically fly when she’s here because she’s super fun, and we just get down to work and get things done.
I have been reading the posts of another Dukan dieter here: http://flamidwyfe.com/dukan-diet/
I spent quite a bit of time yesterday reading about her weight loss journey. She had more to lose than I do, but it was very inspirational. Odd thing is her posts end in February 2013. Did she just stop blogging? Did she fall off the diet and never get back on? Anyway, what I liked about her blogs was that she summarized at the end of the day. So I’ll do that, too.
What was hard for me yesterday is that I’m finding I really don’t like protein in great quantities (though I am a quantity eater, and so I DID eat it in great quantities). I’m really looking forward to adding vegetables. Haven’t yet listened to the chapters on PV (protein & vegetable phase), so I don’t know what types and how much I can eat. But…. I can do this on Monday. Yay!
By the way, I haven’t been at 156 for ages! My starting weight of 158.5 was on the low side of where I’ve been hovering for about a year, so I’m really excited about this. I do feel a bit weak right now, but I’m going to stick with the Attack Phase and power through it. Am trying to find some current Dukan bloggers to connect with.
