I'm Loopy a complete newbie to forums, a veteran in diets! A little insight into my diet faux pars:
2005 - 2006 : Weight watchers (9.5 stone)
2006 - 2007 : Alternative diet (8.5 stone)
2008 - 2012 : pick and choose diet lol (10-11 stone)
2013 : Dr Dukans diet
From these years I've fluctuated from size 8 to 14. Now with me at my heaviest I am determined to gain back my control and teach myself I can say no to my cravings, I will no longer gorge on copius amounts of fruit.....or cake, biscuits, chocolate, sweets, bread.....'oh how I have sinned!' lol
I discovered the dukan diet when my partner was searching for a pure protein diet for his race training, and so we took on challenge.
At the beginning i was very skeptical convinced it was a fad diet which would result in a quick pound drop followed by a weight gain rebound. However, 4 days in am i am amazed ; my perception on food and taste has completely turned around.
For example, in the 'ol' days i wouldn't have thought twice about having banana after banana, whilst sugar coating any desert at my fingertips. Whereas now, the thought of a starchy banana/mango/chocolate/mashed potatoe or oily crisps makes me shudder. Altho cravings for watermelon and grapes have intensified lol
And oooh the delight now of drinking semi - skimmed milk its light a suh-weet sweet heaven!
Never before have I felt like this during a diet, normally im crawling the walls and staring down the mr kipling cherry bakewell boxes! lol
But ever the sinic, I worry how long this new perspective will last, and I was almost afraid to blog for fear that talking about my 'eureka' moment would be diluted by my own reverse psychology.But after a 5 pound loss already, I feel in control and confident that Dr Dukan will lead me to a lighter life. However, my prayer beads will be rubbed raw as again i'm totally worried that after week 1, I will bottle out and give up.
Well, at a snap shot glimpse - thats me and my diet. I welcome with open arms any hints, tips or advice people have to offer, I just hope that I can return the favour
ciao for now
