I started of on Monday after a heavy carb Italian meal on Sunday. Weighed in at 11 11.5!! Heaviest ever. :cryukan book read back to front and resolve was extremely high. Was concerned that period was due and always suffer from major sore boobs and water retention. Good news as by 3rd day lost 4lbs. Have not wavered and trying to make tastey recipes from Dukan book. Then it started going wrong. I have not cheated and lost nothing day 4 and coincedentally curse started today - decided it was the reason and marched on. Extremely focused and not a carb passed my lips on day 5 even though I was gagging for a glass of Sauvingon Blanc. Using Ketostix and am definelty in the ketosis state so confidence was high. Jumped on scales this morning and only lost a quarter of pound over 2 days!!! Has anybody else suffered same ? Still in attack phase and wobbling slightly and dont know what to do. I made the galette and want to know are they essential. Missed one on day 4 but beyond that plenty water being drank. Total weight loss 4.25 lbs.
