    Operation size 10 wedding dress!

    I'm back on the Dukan wagon!

    I successfully slimmed down previously on the Dukan diet, and squeezed into my size 10 jeans, but since then I've been piling on the pounds. I'm now struggling to squeeze into a size 12, let alone a size 10.

    For some stupid reason I thought it would be a good idea to buy a wedding dress too small as a motivation to lose weight. A risky move, but I'm sure I can do it. I'm getting married in Las Vegas (at the Bellagio hotel) in September (so excited!! ), so I have around 6 months...

    Anyway, starting weight this morning was 11 stone 2lbs. According to Dr Dukan I need to complete 3 days of attack, 78 days of cruise (reaching true weight on 2nd June), and then 112 days of consolidation.

    Day 1 - Attack
    B - ff yogurt
    L - chicken, 2 x boiled eggs
    D - more chicken (I cooked a whole chicken yesterday), Dukan porridge
    Exercise - none (feeling ill with a sore throat at the moment, hopefully I can get back to the gym in a few days)

    Ok, time to read some other diaries for motivation/inspiration!

    Howdy P!

    Yes, we've been to Vegas before and loved it! There is a group of around 20 of us going, so it should be lots of fun. We have 1 week in Vegas, and then we're going on a 2 week road trip for our honeymoon - driving through the national parks, San Fran, and then down to LA!

    Hope things are good with you. Do you have a diary in the Atkins section? I'll go and have a look. x

    Hello again, and welcome back. What a fabulous motivation to lose weight, and it sounds like a great holiday you have planned too...

    Remind me how much you lost last time?

    Hope you get straight back in the swing of things... it's just like putting on a comfy pair of slippers, returning to Dukan. So comforting!!

    Hi, thanks for the welcome.

    Last time I went from around 11 and a half stone, to 9 and a half stone. Unfortunately I've allowed myself to pile the weight back on (it's a never ending battle!!). How are you getting on? I'll have to catch up on your diary!

    I love having steak with mushrooms and salad on PV days. I also quite like venison sausages & eggs on a PP day. I tried to eat mostly chicken in the attack phase to maximise weight loss and keep me motivated, but I agree it does get boring!

    3 days of attack are done! I've managed to lose 5lbs, but let's see what happens when I start to introduce vegetables.

    Day 1 - Cruise - PV
    B - chocolate Dukan porridge (love this!), ff yogurt
    L - venison sausage, scrambled eggs & roasted tomatoes
    D - steak, mushrooms & salad

    Still can't face going to the gym, my sore throat is working it's way down my body, and is currently manifesting itself as a chesty cough. I hope to have a sore toe within the next few days, and then expel this thing from my body completely. I was supposed to be taking part in a 15K run on the 29th March, but can't see that happening...oops!
