Hi all - thought I would start a diary (which I'll endeavour to keep up to date!) I've found other peoples really interesting so I hope my notes can help someone along the way.
I started at a mammoth 16st 6lbs a year ago and lost 3st 8lbs with a combination of slimming world, diet chef and personal training. I decided that after hitting the plateau I needed a kick up the bottom to shift the last couple of stone so I've started dukan. I'm sceptical about whether it's good for you and whether I really lose more per week long term than sticking to a low calorie diet but I want to get the last bit gone pre christmas! I've been on this journey for too long.
So I started last Sunday and it's now Friday night. After a blow out 'pig banquet' for my partners birthday I was up to 13st 8lbs. I did 3 days of attack and got to 13st 2.6lbs. I've been staying with family since so not weighed in but I've stuck to it 99% if not 100%. Today is a pv day.
Breaky - oat bran bread with a poached egg
Lunch - hot chicken, lean bacon and salad with a tsp of extra light Philly
Dinner - roasted veg and steak (sneaky bit of whole seed mustard)
Snacks - activia cherry yoghurt
I hope all this is worth it though, I've had horrible headaches all week and I'm really exhausted and woozy. I went to the garden centre and felt completely wiped by the time I've got home. Good thing I'm on holiday this week so can sit and do nothing! Went to the gym yesterday and lasted 30 mins before I felt sick.
The big question is - IS THIS NORMAL?
Woah that's a post and a half - if any of you read this far I'm impressed!
