Could be myself talking all the weirdness too!!! Maybe it's in the air and not in our heads!! LOL. Keep going C and I will keep fingers firmly crossed for a good WI tomorrow x
Thanks Trudy xx was just about to comment on yours too
WI tomorrow - eeeeek!!! Hope it is more positive than last week!!
Dinner was bleugh. I need to get focused on that and get planning. Just a bit uninspired. Hopefully my next few veggie days will perk things up a bit!
So, wish me luck for tomorrow, have a feeling I need it
oh and that quote was MINE from my CBT book! grrrr!!
I hear you re the scales. Our reaction to those wonderful first couple of weeks' loss is such a boost to morale when we're feeling like heifers, and finally we're back in control of our eating patterns. And then, by week two or three, boredom and monotony sets in, and worse still, the scales betray us. I remember someone referring to that period as "the slog"...
Then hopefully there's a light at the end of the tunnel, where it all starts being worthwhile again!
Here's hoping it happens soon (you're not the only one!)
Oh Jo just weighed in and am 13.5 still - no loss from last week and I am not sure if I can stick with this.
Last time the lbs zipping off each week made the boredom bearable, but this is starting to feel rather like torture (I am wearing my dramatic pants this morning!!)
I am seriously thinking of returning to the 5:2 plan that I was doing before Christmas.
I know I shouldn't make snap decisions but I've felt really low this past week and something just isn't working so well this time. I had worried I wouldn't have the same success again.
Lots of conflict today!!! I might give myself a month of 5:2 to see how that works for me and then make a decision after that.. Confused.com
Oh C, I am so sorry to read the STS!!! Blimmin hard to take, from one Dukaner to another when it happened to me I was broken and could not do it...... I am not sure why you are stalling, are all your menus posted? Would have thought they were perfect as you know what your doing. Go back to your 5/2 routine for a bit and again leave the scales alone..... Is it TOTM??? Do you feel you are retaining fluid? Is is worth taking some of those herbal tablets to help with water retention if you feel bloated? Just some thoughts.... Sending you tons of hugs and positive thoughts cos I really do know what you are going through lovely! Be strong and get on the recipe thread for some new ideas to jazz up your food! xxxx
Thanks Trudy xx really appreciate your words. I have just posted menus on my diary and the only thing I could think of was diet coke, but I hardly drinking vast quantities. Not TOM - baffled
The 5:2 is actually a different plan (hangs head in Dukan shame) it's the fasting 2 days per week. I think I just need to try the other plan again as it feels like I am trying so so hard, and not getting the results. I should probably give it another week, but you know how hard that is When the sales aren't budging.
I'll do some thinking today
How are you? Feeling bit sheepish here having returned to the 5:2 fasting diet I tried before Christmas.
I was just feeling really low about Dukan. I'm cross with myself as I am sure a nice loss was just a week away and if I had stuck with it, i would have got a good result again, but I was feeling grim and the maintains weren't helping.
So, I'm planning to be sensible and healthy and not go on a carb binge, staying away from white bread etc and fingers crossed this will work.
I was baking all day yesterday for a charity sale we are having at work and I've decided to fast today, wish me luck
I'll keep posting just to update etc if all ok and will change the title - xx
C, I know how u have been feeling and also that there are many roads to Rome! Keep posting on here so we can still support u! This weight thing is such a mind game isn't it? Remember how u were feeling when u were off any plan and how annoyed u were when clothes looked rubbish, being in control will banish those feelings and so go for it C and fingers crossed! X
I feel comfortable back on dukan and desperately want to weigh again but staying away until next week - made some good food which has helped and my new oven is cooking up muffins a storm - they r so cake like and delish!
Good luck Couteaux, doesn't matter which road you take, me darlin'
Hows the fast been C???? xxxx
Thanks Trudy and P xx
Trudy you are totally right re how I felt off plan and I want to stay away from that feeling and just keep focused on healthy eating. It felt very weird having non dukan stuff over the weekend but I've been very good about what I am allowing myself (within reason!)
First fast has been perfect so far. I was working today and we were so busy that I had no time to think of food! Only really hungry now I am home and feeding my 3
I'll be cooking a veg stirfry for dinner and have 500 cals to play with, so might go crazy and add an egg! I try and get as much for my cals as possible volume wise.
Tomorrow I plan to have roast chicken and veggies for dinner and will try to stay off the carbs still, just adding more pulses, occasional treats etc but I want 2 days to be v healthy without processed carbs and then weekends free.
Thanks for your continued support, I really appreciate it xoxox
Sounds like a good plan C, whichever diet we decide to follow your head needs to be in the right place doesn't it and you seem to be there again which is fab!!! Tomorrows plan sounds good too!!! I keep thinking about that resistance muscle strengthening and the weak willed one wilting away!!!! I can only wish!!! LOL! x
I have a good friend (first met on internet, now in real life too!) who lost her weight in part through the Juddd diet (alternate 500 cals, and 2,000 cal days). On her 500 calorie days, she'd talk of eating berries... check out strawbs, rasps, blueberries etc in your local supermarket (shame we're in winter) and you can make yourself fabulous fruit bowlfuls of loveliness for very few calories! Might cost an arm and a leg in winter though!
If you find yourself going too far the other way, you can always dip into the Dukan protein basket to fill yourself up and stop a potential binge...
Good luck and don't disappear!!
