So, I failed to start a diary when I actually started Dukan nearly a month ago, but we are going to pretend that last week was my first week.
I initially started dukan without factoring in that during my third week I would be spending a weekend at a festival, attending four parties and staying with family...all quite challenging to continue dukan-ing, so I called it quits. I would simply enjoy that week, get it all out of the way and start afresh.
I decided that I wouldn't weigh myself after that week as I didn't want to be disheartened by the stark reality of the scaled showing me that all my previous hard work had gone to waste. I chose to do 4 days on attack on my return and then weigh myself so that in theory I had stayed the same (am I the only one who plays these crazy mental games with myself?!?).
I am now on day 3 of cruise and when I last weighed, I was 1.4lb less than when I left off - not too shabby.
I think yesterday was my real revelation day, when I really came to complete understanding and focus with Dukan. I took a trip to the supermarket and stocked up on all the essentials and made sure that I am now able to create meals which will keep me interested as well as not cause too much conflict with meal prep for the rest of my household. I have even got people trying to steal my stockpile of muffins.
I'm really hopeful and focused on my journey now, especially as I have so much to look forward to in the latter half of the year...I really need to succeed!
Heres to finding my happiness!
