Day 2 of trying again

Weight – holy crap, I can’t possible weight that much … but I do

Goal weight – anything less than today

Total lost – 0.3kg since yesterday when I started again.

Yesterday showed me … again… that I have a serious sugar addiction. We went to a kids birthday party and if I had been left alone with that cake, it would have been gone. And then there was a red velvet cake. Oh my word, it was divine.

Anyway, I was mostly good and I lost weight this morning.

So I’m back on the bandwagon, I need to lose some weight before I go overseas in June. Just so I can fit in economy more comfortably and don’t give the family a heartattack.

*Clink* to a good day ahead.

Day 6

Good Morning,

So my weight has been steadily going up and my morale down. So I'm trying something else.

Trying to cut out sugar. Anything with more than 10g more 100g I must avoid and then more protein, because it really helps keep me full and not hungry. And of course exercise.

PS: I'm not bi-polar, just really bad at dieting.

PS: When I'm feeling strong again I will do the Dukan diet again.

F@&*% it

Day 4: Did not go well.

Total lost: 2.1kg, up from yesterday.

The only positive thing I can say is, I exercised.

And only sort of cheated - toast and peanut butter, strawberry drinking yoghurt, 2x chocolates, raisins.

I suck so badly at dieting and I am grumpy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow is another day.

Day 2 & 3

Day 3: 8th Jan

Weight: Still too much, but happier

Goal Weight: 28kg less

Total lost: 2.5kg – Happy days.

Breakfast: 200g yoghurt

Snack: Biltong 100g

2cd Breakfast: Omelette with mushrooms (decided I have lost enough to introduce veg).

Snack: 100g Boerewors (South African trad. Sausage)

Snack: 100g Biltong

Dinner: Chicken and veg

Not the end of the day: Really pleased with my weight loss, feeling happy and lighter and my tummy is flatter too. Though I do think I ate too much red meat (biltong and boerewors). But I went a long time between 2cd breakfast and the boerewors. 


Day 2: 7th Jan 2013

Weight: TOO MUCH

Goal Weight: 28 kilograms less than TOO MUCH

Total Lost: 1.9kg

Breakfast – 200g Yoghurt

Snack – Biltong 100g (I’m South African – this is dried, spiced meat)

Lunch – 155g Prawns and 20 little beef frikkadels

Snack – Way too much diet coke, I have the shakes from the caffeine. 

Dinner – 3 eggs

End of the day feelings: Happy that I have made it through the day, I still need to exercise and have dinner. But generally pleased with myself, this is such a long journey, I’m trying to focus on each day and just be proud of that day.

End of the end of the day: Didn’t exercise :(

Day 1: 6th Jan 2013

Weight: TOO MUCH

Goal Weight: 28 kilograms less than TOO MUCH

Weight Lost: 1.1kg

Goal 1 – 10kg full stop

Goal 2 - 13kg by birthday – the BIG 3 5 – 17 March 2013

Goal 3 – 15kg – my official Mommy Weight

Goal 4 – 20kg – Holy crap that would be wonderful

Goal 5 – 28kg – I will wear my wedding dress for a day

So this glorious journey was meant to start on the 1st. I was doing alright until I realised that my period had not started …. And of course I think I’m pregnant. But as it turns out my body was playing a very mean trick on me. I am a little broody, even with two children, who drive me to drink, being on antidepressants due to stress and anxiety and I have had post natal depression twice. So I’m a very stupid candidate for a third kid. But I got excited. Tried to follow the consolidation phase of the Dukan diet, ate a kilogram of biscuits and generally didn’t do well. But the cruel trick is over, I’m not pregnant and I’m ready to try again ….. and again and again.

Breakfast – 3 eggs - Tick

Exercise - 15 min on the Eliptical Trainer - 137 calories - very pleased - Tick
Snack – Biltong 80g (I’m South African – this is dried, spiced meat) - Tick

Lunch – 7 chicken slices - Tick

Snack – Yoghurt 200g - Tick

Dinner – Mince - Tick - cheated, the mince has some baby marrow in it (3 calories, don't think it will be a problem)
Snack - Low fat salmon flavoured cottage cheese - Tick

Lots of Water and Rooibos tea with milk …. Ooooo and diet coke … cause I’m not pregnant.

End of the day: So I started the day super psyched and I'm ending the day with a headache and with the want to go to bed and sleep, so I'm not tempted to cheat. Sigh, I'm so bad at diets. But at least day 1 is almost over and has been successful. 

Saturday, January 5, 2013


Tomorrow I (re)start the Dukan diet. Five days of Attack Phase and a lot of Cruise Phase days and the rest is in the distant future.

This hopefully will help me stick to it (the diary of my eating), it's time to regain my pre everything figure.

I have read such fantastic things about the diet and have had some success on it previously - though I haven't made it past the attack phase successfully. But this time is different .... I hope.

See you tomorrow.
