So this is my 3rd (technically 4th) time attempting to reach my goal weight. I did Lipotrim and Celebrity Slim before, which are TFR's, although you have dinner with CS. With both of those diets I lost weight, a lot of weight, but it inevitably returned and moving to America from Ireland really hasn't helped.
Not only have I had to deal with huge portions and the fact that it's often cheaper to eat out but also homesickness and the comfort eating that brings on. Well thats all stopping now! Hopefully
I've been working with a personal trainer for the last 5 and a half months and seeing great results. I've toned up, I'm stronger and I'm fitter but I haven't lost any weight... So my wonderful PT suggested the Dukan Diet to me and, after looking at it, it seems like a dream come true. I get to eat and lose weight at a fast rate....that's a cake walk compared to LT and CS she says, tempting Fate.
My Attack Phase lasted 6 days and I lost 7.4lbs, 2.2lbs more than the website predicted and I'm pretty sure that's due to an increased metabolic rate from all my exercise
Currently I'm on day 3 of my Cruise Phase (only 177 left ) and all is going well so far. My husband is doing the diet with me, despite only needing to lose a sixth the weight I need to lose and I adore him for it! It has made it sooo much easier because he understands the limitations of the diet and we can support each other through it. He will reach the Consolidation Phase in about a month but I know he will still be just as supportive as he is now.
I will reach Consolidation in 25.5weeks time, although I hope to continue with my slightly faster weightloss and reach Conso in 19.5 weeks. I only need to lose and additional 0.5lb a week to do this!
The reason I want to shorten my Cruise time is because my family is coming to visit and I would love for them to see me slim and toned! It will be the first time they've seen me in person in over a year and I will be the first time they've EVER seen me at a healthy weight with a decent fitness level

You sound like you're really embracing the diet Silver and keeping the motivation going. I look forward to reading more.
Sounds as if its all going well, keep up the good work! Nice thing is on this diet you can eat yourself slim - brilliant wheeze! Good luck
Fab start to the new ' SilverSilph'
The time goes so quick especially when you know you will have lost weight if you do Dukan 100%. I am amazed each week when I can go food shopping and not be tempted with anything non Dukan. This diet has defo done something with my head!!! LOL
Yeah I'm suprised that I'm finding it so easy to turn down things and stay on track. Every other diet I've done took a lot more will power....well at least that's how it feels at the moment lol. If you come back to me in a few weeks I wonder if I'll be singing the same tune...
Yes you will - no way did I think I would still be eating this way after 25 weeks and have lost 48 lbs - Dukan is Brilliant
I just looked at your stats and you're like me but in the future! I've almost the same goal and starting weight! ...well I'm NOW at your starting weight after 11days lol. But its still really cool to see how well you've done Great motivation!
Another good day! This can't last forever, can it?
Today was PP so breakfast was scrambled egg white and some beef. Lunch was a chicken breast and for dinner we went out for sushi Was sooo good! I got miso soup (picked out the shitake mushrooms), a mixed sashimi plate with salmon, tuna, scallops, king crab and a suprise fish and to finish, seared scallops with vinegrette. The scallops came with a salad so I got it boxed to have tomorrow
I also got exercise in today on top on my walk. So I did 30min running/interval training, 3min wall sit, 3.5min(total) plank, 20 push ups, 30 sit ups, 20 leg raises, 30rep per side oblique dead lifts with 25lb weight, oh and 21 flights of stairs (not including daily stair climbing). Pretty happy with that
Brought my pup to the off leash dog park today as well. She was really well behaved! I was exceedingly proud of her. She listened to everything I said and followed the casual heel until I released her and came right back when I started the heel again.
But then the poor thing got bullied a bit by a bigger dog. She ended up face-planting and her momentum cause her to skid, ON HER FACE, and then flip over onto her back. She has a few cuts by her eye now from the gravel, and she was cowering against my legs for a while after
Silver reading your exercise yesterday makes me tired! Hope your little dog is OK this morning.
Yes and I see we are both 5'10" - keep going with Dukan it does truly work 25 weeks and im still not fed up.
This morning I'm now 2lb of my true weight so chuffed and more chuffed
Well done Thats awesome!
Rua is good. She so resilient. She got attacked by a German Shepard a while back when walking with my husband and we thought she'd be terrified of them but nope, still one of her fav breeds
Thank you for asking after her
