Dukan Day 97

189.8!  I was hoping to be in the 180's by mid August and here I am not even to the end of July.  I am so thrilled with the progress and even more so the way I feel, energetic, confident and full of pride :-)

21 pounds to go and it is hard to believe but I am almost there.  I have been thinking about consolidation now and strategizing that process and reading reading reading the Dukan book.  I am nervous and excited at the same time :-)

Here is a pic of me at my heaviest in 2002 ;-(

Dukan Day 89



Sorry the lag in posts folks, I have been so busy I can hardly see straight.  I am continuing to lose well and now down to 193.8 and working hard toward that next goal of 180 and then my plan is to maintain for 3 months and give my body a rest.  I feel confident entering this stage and looking forward to being at the end of this journey, but there never really is and end is there, rather it is just the journey.

I celebrated my Birthday on the 17th and didn't have any cake, which was not hard at all.  The thought of sugar turns my stomach and I think it would actually make me ill at this point, good thing!

My menu for today

2 Dukan OB muffins
Egg White Omelet with Mushrooms
Cottage Cheese
Chicken Breast
Tenderloin Steak
Salad with lettuce, broccoli, radishes and green peppers

Continuing to inch down and seeing a good loss rate - yay!  I have been so busy that I can hardly see straight and there have been 2 days where I hardly ate anything at all and not a good thing, it was everything I could do to not attack the Cheddar Cheese popcorn.  This is a good example that you HAVE to eat your meals, very important.

Today's Menu

Egg White Omelet
2 Dukan OB Muffins
Shrimp
Cottage Cheese
Chicken Breast
Salmon

well, I am up a pound and not really sure why?  Yesterday was a P/V day but that usually does not affect me so not really sure why but we shall see if it is gone tomorrow.  I think the last 50 pounds is going to be a little harder to get off :-(

I did spend some time out in the sun yesterday and it could be water retention from the heat as well as I do feel a bit more "fluffy" this morning....

Menu from Yesterday

Breakfast
2egg white omelette with mushroom
2 Dukan OB Muffins

Lunch
Chicken Breast
Salad with cucumber, peppers and lettuce

Snack
1 tub of yogurt

Dinner
Salmon Filet
Green Beans

I made it to "one"derland!!!!  197 - I am over the moon and absolutely thrilled!  My next goal is 190 and ultimately I will get to 150.

I found I had to mix up my foods again to get out of the stagnation and I seem to have to do this about once a month to keep my body fooled and continue losing.

I hope everyone had a great Holiday :-)
