Day 30 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 103.3 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.0 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 6.3 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette
  • Snack – 2 sugar free sweets

  • Snack – Cooked Turkey Slices
  • Dinner – Turkey & Chicken Burger, 0% fat yoghurt

I felt like I had eaten loads yesterday and thought I would have put a bit of weight on today – but no, the scales say 103.3 so I am delighted with that.

Here are my weekly loss numbers so far:

Week 1- 2.9 kilos
Week 2 – 0.6
Week 3 – 0.5
Week 4 – 1.2
Week 5 – 1.1

It´s great to see the numbers going down on the scales – that is a real motivator!

Cruise Phase Day 21

Day 21 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 104.4 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.3 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 5.2 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette with blueberry Quark
  • Snack – 2 sugar free sweets
  • Lunch – 3 slices cooked ham, 30g Vanilla Quark
  • Snack – Cooked Turkey Slices
  • Dinner – Grilled Salmon Fillet, 0% fat yoghurt
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea, 1 cup of coffee
  • Exercise – None…..again – I feel guilty now!

It was such a miserable day yesterday I thought I would end up breaking my diet – but I didn´t and am surprised as that was just the kine of day that usually has me heading for the kitchen looking for “something nice”.  I made the Lemon Muffins but they didn´t turn out like the picture on the recipe.  They were OK, but got burnt on the top and all the bran floated to the top of the muffins and the bottom was nice and spongey.  The recipe was supposed to make 6 muffins but I got 12 so have 6 muffins a day for 2 days with my bran allowance.

I didn´t try the Cheescake recipe yet, but will probably try it during the week.

I had a good weight loss today and am loving this diet – just hope I don´t get too tempted by all the Christmas goodies that are in the shops now.

Cruise Phase Day 17

Day 17 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 104.9 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.7 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 4.7 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette flavoured with Blueberry Quark (delicious but bad!)
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – Turkey Burgers, 0% fat yoghurt
  • Snack – none
  • Dinner – Roasted Picanton (very small chicken)
  • Drinks – 1.5 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea, 1 cup of coffee
  • Exercise – None….!!

I will really have to get back to doing some exercise today!  The Bromelain tablets are working on the inflammation in my back so I am starting to feel better.  Will try to do 20 minutes on the Cross Trainer today.

Bromelain also seems to have another effect, and I am not bloated today and have had a good internal clear out…lol.  My weight has gone down a lot today and I am delighted I found this diet!

Cruise Phase Day 12

Day 12 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 105.1 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.7 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 4.5 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette with added Wheat Bran
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – Egg Wrap with 0% fat Fresh Cheese and Cooken Turkey Slices
  • Snack – Cooked Turkey Slices, 0% fat yoghurt
  • Dinner – Tandoori Chicken, Coffee Creme & Meringue
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea, 1 cup of coffee
  • Exercise – None really – but I did pick some oranges

Look at that weight loss!  I am not really expecting that all to stay off as today is a PV day but it looked damn good on the scales this morning!  That´s the good thing about the Dukan Diet, you get these spectacular drops every now and again and that keeps the motivation up.

My back was really playing up again yesterday so no exercise again.

I´ll post the recipe for the Coffee Creme today as it turned out quite nice – you can also make it with Chocolate or Vanilla.  It´s from the Dukan Diet Book.   I made the meringue out of the leftover egg whites, but it didn´t turn out as I expected – it was full of air and not very meringue-y at all!

Cruise Phase Day 7

Day 7 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 106 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.5 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 3.6 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Oat Bran Porridge, 2 scrambled Eggs
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – 6 cherry tomatoes picked straight from the plant!
  • Snack – none
  • Dinner – Roast Chicken, Sugar Free Jelly
  • Drinks – 1.5 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea, 1 Diet Coke, 1 glass Cava
  • Exercise – Walking around Fuengirola

We had a nice day out yesterday catching up with friends.  I was Very Good and resisted all temptations except for the glass of Cava (it was only a small one….).  Mark has tomato plants growing on his terrace so I helped myself to 6 deliciously sweet cherry tomatoes.  I didn´t have any avocado (from Vanna´s trees), fresh bread, Ann´s Corn Fritters or Potato Wedges……how good was I???

Very happy to see the weight loss this morning!  I have a great excuse for being on this diet and everyone understands why I have to lose weight – I really don´t want to have another spinal fusion – so they don´t even try to persuade me to break it, just admire my willpower.

Cruise Phase Day 5

Day 5 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 106.6 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.0 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 3 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Oat Bran Porrdige
  • Snack – 0% Natural Yoghurt
  • Lunch – Ham Omelette, Dukan Custard (last one, will have to make more)
  • Snack – 3 crab sitcks
  • Dinner – Grilled Chicken Breast, 0% flavoured yoghurt
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 3 cups of tea, 1 coffee
  • Exercise – No proper exercise but I swept up all the leaves and fallen pommegranets from the front of the house

Still the same weight 3 days in a row – but at least it hasn´t gone up which it was doing when I was on Atkins.

After sweeping up the leaves outside (took about 30 minutes) my back was complaining about the new movement! So no Cross Trainer after that.

I´m doing another PP day today so I will have more choice of what I can eat at the BBQ tomorrow. Hope I don´t get tempted by too many nice things.

Cruise Day 3

Day 3 of the Cruise Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 106.6kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.1 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 3 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Dukan Galette
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – Egg Wrap with prawns and cottage cheese.
  • Snack – 3 crab sticks
  • Dinner – Grilled Tuna Steak
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 1 cup of tea, 1 cup of coffee.
  • Exercise – 20 mins Cross Trainer

Well, the good doctor said the weight loss would slow a bit at the start of the Cruise phase and looks like he is right!  Although I do feel much slimmer than I was last week.  Fat seems to be melting off me in all the right places!

Today is PV day so I will be having some veggies – apparently Asparagus is very good for shifting some fluid and I just love Asparagus so I will be having more of that.

Hope you are all having some success…….

Attack Phase Day 7

Day 7 of the Attack Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 107.2 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.6 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 2.4 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Oat Bran Porridge
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – Chicken/Turkey burger, Dukan Custard
  • Snack – 3 Crab Sitcks
  • Dinner – Grilled Chicken Breast, 0% Fat Yoghurt
  • Drinks – 2 ltrs water, 1 cup of tea, 1 cup of coffee.
  • Exercise – 15 mins Crosstrainer

This will be my last Attack day and I am happy with the weight loss so far :)

I had planned to have a mid-morning snack as I only had porridge for breakfast but I just wasn´t hungry and didn´t start to think about food until 2pm.  And I did some exercise…….I sometimes wish I was the sporty type who just loves to exercise!

We are going out to visit friends today (and to pick out a new puppy for me!) so I´m not sure how it will go.  Maybe I´ll bring some sliced meat and crab sticks with me – they are understanding types so shouldn´t be a problem.

The Dukan Custard is just as good when it has been stored in the fridge and I will definately be making it again.

Attack Phase Day 6

Day 6 of the Attack Phase stats:

  • Starting Weight 109.6 kgs
  • Weight Today 107.8 kgs
  • Weight Gain 0.2 kgs
  • Total Weight Lost 1.8 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – Oat Bran Pancake.
  • Snack – none
  • Lunch – Egg Wrap with Smoked Salmon and Fromage Frais, Custard
  • Snack – 3 crab sticks
  • Dinner – 2 slices Turkey Meat, Grilled Panga (fish), 0% fat yoghurt.
  • Drinks – more than 2 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea, 2 cups coffee.
  • Exercise – No proper exercise but went shopping again.

I ate very late last night and think that may have contributed to the small gain.  Also didn´t have to go to the toilet my usual 3 times during the night so may also be some water retention.

I´m not very good at doing the exercise as you can see so from today I am going to make a real effort to either go far a long walk or go on the crosstrainer.

I am doing 7 days on Attack and have to say I am not really missing vegetables yet!
