Today was a PP Day (I’m doing 2 PP and 1 PV alternatively)
Daily Loss: 0.0 lb/0.0 kg
Total Loss: 16.6 lb/7.55 kg
Wt. to go: 93.4 lb/42.5 kg
So, I didn’t have a weight loss today, but I’m not discouraged, because I didn’t have a weight gain either 🙂 I am pretty sure that after I take the Dulcolax tonight before bed, I’ll have some weightloss in the morning 😀 It’s been 5 days and I’m a bit uncomfortable to say the least!
Breakfast: Yogurt with splenda and oat bran (obviously not working!!!!!) and before that I drank 500 mL of COLD WATER and then 250 mL of HOT COFFEE and still nothing 😦 LOL
Mid-Morning: a cup of coffee with splenda and FF CoffeeMate, made special by the baristas down in the cafe at the hospital I work at… they are the BEST!
Lunch: A plate of roast beef, less cooked than the day before, a diet coke, 500 mL of water.
Mid-Afternoon: another cup of my special coffee and another 500 mL of water
Dinner: Mixed grill from the Lebanese restaurant, beef and chicken grilled over the fire… yum! They also threw in a yummy grilled half onion, slightly blackened on the outside… mmm, mmm!!!! Diet Coke.
I then walked for 28 minutes… FAST and drank another 500 mL I’m just cooling off from the walk in 97 degree heat and then a quick shower and bed… I’m hoping for some good results in the morning 😉
I’m having issues with “going” also. I noticed yesterday tho that I ate a tomato and, WOW… a natural laxative! I was actually thinking about eating 1 a day just for that rather than taking something to make it happen. This has to be the biggest draw back!
Hi Jamie! I’m following you and Curt, as well! Must be fun (most of the time) to have someone at home to do the program with!
I’m going to try the tomato. The dulcolax is working a little bit, but not what I expected… more tonight on my blog… shower and work are calling.
Good luck with all of that. I do not have any luck with that. Bought some psyllium husks today. Hope things work. Your dinner sounds yummy.
Is the heat dry there? No gym where you work?
Hey Kath… I actually work at a “5 star” boutique hospital with a pretty nice gym up on the top floor, including pool. We can join, but it’s grossly overpriced. Even the spa manager has a membership somewhere else. But when you work 10-12 hour days/5 days a week, the last thing you want to do is go to the gym on the way home. I am seeing the personal trainer there today, which will cost me a pretty penny… so much for the benefits of being a manager… LOL
OMG i have never ever been so excited to see a cucumber before as i was today LOL. WHo would have thought that tuna, cucumber, lettuce and peppers would be such a treat! Another 1lb down and the 1st day of cruise today. 🙂
Keep it going Sandi…you are doing fab
@ Caroline … I know what you mean! 🙂 I almost got teary eyed once the attack phase was over and I ate a carrot…
LOL, Caroline! Your tuna salad sounds yummy!!! Awesome that you’re another pound down… woo hoo!
Sounds like your having a bit of an issue. Hope everything works out in the end 😀 Try Ativia . It may help. ❤ Mom
You’re funny, Mom! The Dulcolax worked pretty well 🙂
Crunches work wonders! I don’t know why but they really help moving things in the intestines along … also a traditional ayurvedic recipe: boil some ginger root for five minutes, remove it and add some lemon juice.
Thanks for the advise! I will try the ginger root tonight!
Sending this message for day 18..Read it and when I tried to reply couldn’t.. So here goes…Glad to see you are having some success in the bowel area. Suggest you get more fiber,such as Kelloggs Wheat Thins cereal or Post Great Grains(contains raisins,dates and pecans) and is a whole grain cereal,if available there. Both work well for me.. Also more fresh greens. Hope this works well with your Ducan diet .
Hi Mom! Cant have any of those cereals on the Dukan diet 😦 I had lots of veggies yesterday on my “veggie” day and the plumbing is in overtime 😀
Love you! xoxo
