It might seem that I’m the lucky one whose weight just goes down from week to week without struggle but the truth is, this weekly summary doesn’t show the reality of the scales which is – the scale can show a difference of over a kilo from one day to the next!!! … So you could say that it is better to just weigh yourself once a week, as daily weighing is not for the faint-hearted haha!
But then I am a bit of a control freak, so I do that. If you want to weigh yourself daily, you must most of all keep calm and do not despair. Write down the weight everyday, but only make a comparison on a weekly basis. I find it motivating, because I just ignore it if it’s a bit higher. I consider it a bit of a stop, not a step back. I would only feel that I need to step it up a bit if I gained weight in comparison to last week. From day to day it can always be too much water in the body or a sudden loss of weight if you sinned with some alcohol (:X don’t do that!). What you must remember is that if you want to lose a lot of weight, it’s a process. It will not happen overnight. But you can also be optimistic. Like a countdown. If you stick to the diet, you should be able to lose about 1kilo a week, week after week. On the Dukandiet page, there is a calculator, that can help you count your ‘ideal weight’ and approximate time on the diet:
So at the beginning of my diet I did that and wrote a ‘planned weight for the week’ in my diary. So even if I lost less than a kilo, I still could see that I’m on track
Here’s a chart of how it looks:
Breakfast: Tomato soup and chicken muffins
Lunch: curry spiced chicken and cottage cheese
Dinner: Bran cake with ham and tomatoes
Desert: Grated carrots

I had a diet dream… I was on a Dukan dieters convention and in the womens toilet, there was a small fridge, where you could buy sweets… muffins, cakes, cream biscuits, chocolates. I broke down and started eating it all. I woke up with a sense of failure Fortunately – it was only a dream. haha!
For the first time in a looong time I had a fruit yoghurt. I had a peach 0%fat Activia. Oh it was good
What’s nice about a very strict diet is that you learn to appreciate the things you never considered fancy
My downfall: I had a snickers
Weight loss: 2.3kilos!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess sometimes a sweet snack can boost your metabolism hahaha!
I’m out of the 90′s !:D
