Hey there and welcome Taffy Girl. You are off to a great start - nearly half a stone lost already. :happy096:

You probably do need to up the water. I find I'm easily drinking 3L a day but there again I don't drink tea. My skin has inproved considerably in the last week or so - a nice side effect!

How did you get on today with your meal out? Sending positive vibes your way for you to stick to your plan. :) Xx

Hi - my meal out was better than planned, thanks! Had chicken skewers with sweet chilli sauce and salad, washed down with a couple of diet cokes. Will be drinking more water today - Have had a litre already and have filled a 1.5l bottle to drink this afternoon.

Dinner last night was chicken breast and roasted veggies with some vanilla flavoured yoghurt for afters.

Had gallette and yoghurt for breakfast, boiled egg, tuna 4 crabsticks and cottage cheese for lunch and something fishy for tea.

Well done Taffy. You're doing brilliantly (even if I did cringe a couple of times fearing your next weigh in, you were fine!!).

I must say that I don't envy you your breakfast today. I could not eat that for breakfast!

Have stuck again today at 77.1kg - but thats ok.... its staying off and I think to be expected after such a good week last week.

So - more water, less crabsticks and smoked salmon - and time to experiment with some cooking this weekend, I think .... Need to try and make some muffins and a few sauces.

We were planning a picnic today - but rain has stopped play. I made my chicken, ham and boiled egg salad and put it in a tupperware in the fridge and the tomatoes had made it lovely and moist - so may try that again on a PV day.

Think I might toddle off to the supermarket and get some steak for tea. I am not a great steak lover - but I do quite fancy it today and it will be a nice treat for hubby. Should go lovely with some dry-fried onions, mushrooms, and grilled tomato.

Maintainer - can I just ask what is was that made you cringe?
Am I doing something wrong? - Any tips/shoves in the right direction are most welcome!

I am hoping for a little loss tomorrow as my "transit issues" have resolved themselves with a bit of veg today!

Hey, while you can get away with it, hang in there. Crabsticks, while ok at 8 a day, are full of sugar (and I see you've already identified them as something to keep for an emergency snack). Ham is a litigious one (over here, only "fat free" - aka nasty synthetic see through stuff, is ok). I know in UK he's allowed it, but careful with salt and additives. It was also the sweet chilli sauce which made me tremble for you ;) but you were fine! Little things... but some of us are sensitive, particularly as we near our goal!

Keep it up!

Thank you Maintainer! All my crabsticks are gone and I wont be buying any more for a while. I dont really like sweet chilli sauce so thats not a problem but I didnt realise that ham was contentious, so thanks for pointing that one out.

I am very pleased with my 200g loss this morning..... in spite of my lack of water yesterday (1litre plus 2 coffees) If I dont fill my 1.5l bottle in the morning I usually don't drink enough so I have done it this morning and will try and make this a habit!

I really enjoyed my steak yesterday - not so keen on the dukan bread (but that may be because I mis-read the recipe and used fromage frais instead of quark -oops). Today I have prawns, turkey, steak, chicken breast and rhoooooobarb (which I'm going to have with 0%greek yoghurt and mixed spice).

Cant believe that I have been on dukan for 2 weeks and only had one BBQ.... so lets hope for some nice weather this weekend.

Well, I survived a night at the pub.... I drove and drank diet coke and water. I even managed to resist the numerous packets of crisps that the girls were sharing on the table.... (oh boy, did they smell good!).

Had another lovely compliment from a friend about how I had lost so much weight. (Yep, that'll be the 7lbs that Ive shifted in the 12 days since I saw you last!)

Bought some new size 14 clothes in the M&S sale today and raided my mums wardrobe for a few bits of size 12/14 stuff for my holidays, as lots of my clothes are a little on the loose side.
 

wheesht

Just keep swimming...

Another 100g off today - slow but steady is good!

I carried my 18 month son in his car seat for the first time in ages this week and I really struggled even though it was only a short distance. So we weighed him in it and it was 29lbs - just a little bit less than I have lost already this year. I am 2/3 of the way to my target so have about half that weight to go still. That really puts in perspective for me.

B - rhubarb, quark, mixed spices
L - turkey, steamed cauli, brocoli and carrot batons, cottage cheese, tomato
D - prawns, mussels, squid, cod, salmon stir-fried with mushrooms, garlic
S - galette with yoghurt

2 x coffees, 1 x tea, 1l water

2 weeks in and I am weighing in at 76.5kgs or 12 stone 1/2lb today.
So a loss of 8lbs or 3.7kg.... Very, very happy! Here's hoping that this time next week I will be 11 stone something!

Well, its 3 weeks and 6 days until we go on holiday to Majorca - and I really want to lose another 4.5lbs, which I think is entirely possible.

Theres not much that can get in the way - apart from a week off work and maybe a few days away camping - but even that is manageable, with a lot of planning and some advice and support from my fellow minimins Dukaneers. 11 stone something here I come!!!
