    Got weighed Monday 16th May and weighed 12st 3lb! Really upset as I didn’t think I was this heavy. I wouldn't dream of telling my husband what i weighed, I sneak down to the scales of a morning.
    Have been hovering about 11st 7 lb for a while and have just let myself go. I also started my TOM that day so that would account for a couple of pounds.
    Although I exercise a few times a week I eat far too much chocolate and biscuits. Like many of you I can’t just eat one biscuit and be satisfied I have to eat loads. Creme eggs and Reece’s Chocolate peanut butter probably account for quite a few pounds.
    Did Dukan last year and lost weight so thought time to do it again. Have found since I hit 40 that all my excess weight goes straight on my tummy and that I don’t lose weight just by cutting down half heartedly.

    Therefore extreme measures required. Decided to go on Dukan Diet and exercise EVERY day as I need a real kick start to get the weight off. I have also been doing the Jillian Michaels 20 minute shred. (I tend to do it twice (40 minutes) and really feel like I have had a workout.
    Below is my daily diary and details of workout. I will update regularly. I have started at Day 67 as we go away in 67 days and I want to think long term instead of losing heart after a couple of weeks if the scales don’t move. Tried my first Zumba class last week and love it so that has inspired me to exercise more.
    Have also ordered the Zumba Fitness DVD, so will try that when it arrives.

    Day 1 12st 3
    Day 4 11 st 12
    Day 11 11st 7 lb

    Did Attack for 5 days and now on alternate PP and PP-V.
    40 mins exercise per day -Jillian Michaels, Zumba , X Trainer or jogging

    GOT TO KEEP IT UP

    I forced myself to go a Body Blitz gym session in my lunch hour as I thought it would be a good idea to get it out of the way. Hard work but glad I did it.

    Day 11 11st 7 lb

    Rather than getting back "on track" (which I presume means attack + cruise again), at your weight with your exercise levels, I'd recommend restarting at phase 3... have a read. It'd be far lower calorie and higher protein than a normal diet, but wouldn't cut out the food groups permanently when you're already at a normal BMI.

    Your choice though ;)
