Dukan – Day 58

Today was a PP Day

Daily Weight Loss: -0.9 lb/-0.4 kg
Total Weight Loss: 31.9 lb/ 14.51 kg

Well, shuhada… I have no idea how I gained a pound, but it’s all good. I did all the tricks my Dukaner friends have taught me… 1. step on scale 2. step off 3. turn scale towards the north 4. step back on 5. shake scale 6. step back on and exhale every ounce of air in your lungs… none of it worked… 😀

The funniest thing about the gain is that it could not have been from the day. Just FYI, I write on Tuesday about Monday’s diet and include my Tuesday morning (after I pee) weigh in. So yesterday, and really today, I haven’t felt that great. I’ve had a headache just enough to feel it there and a low-grade fever. So I really haven’t been hungry. Here’s what I had:

Breakfast: 1 boiled egg
Morning snack: another boiled egg
Lunch: 1 plate of shaved beef with cilantro on top and a teeny bit of soy sauce
Dinner: 4 chicken wings and a skinny steak (that cuban kind… had it at a Mexican restaurant here in China).

That was it. Additionally, I am totally in ketosis. In fact, I suspect it may be part of the reason I’m having these annoying headaches. But yesterday I could taste the metal in my mouth and asked the lab tech for a dip stick to check my urine (she ended up giving me TWO BOTTLES!!!… score!) and sure enough I was spilling large ketones… which, although I want my body to burn fat for energy, I don’t want it burning at that rate!

After dinner we took a long walk back, about 45 minutes in the nice cool fall air. It was lovely. So I got my morning 20 mins. to work walk in and a 45 min. after dinner walk. I do have to say that I did not get in Bran or 1.5 L of water. I probably got about 750 mL… might be part of the problem…

Well, now I’m off to make tonight’s dinner… not real hungry, but I think my body might slow down it’s weight loss if it thinks I’m starving it… gotta feed it some energy 🙂

  1. Just keep plodding on 🙂 My weight loss has slowed considerably over the past 18 days..can’t work out whether it’s just slowing down which is to be expected, i am not eating enough as i rarely feel hungry, or am much less careful about the water and exercise and are getting complacent. Still slowly going in a downward direction though and can just about squeeze my ass into size 12 jeans (albeit a very hefty squeeze lol) WE CAN DO IT 🙂

    • That is great! Size 12!!! I’ve got a bit to go before I’m there, but I’m looking forward to it. The nice thing is to see the scale continue to go down. Even if a smidgen from the day before. I think the water and the walk is a necessity. I’m getting plenty of walking in. 1.5 kms to work and home each day… haven’t hitched a ride yet! Although, it’s cooling off and I don’t know how this Florida girl will feel about walking to work in the cold! 🙂

      • You will feel great because you lose more weight in the cold. The colder it is the harder your body works to keep your core protected. Embrace the cold!! Embrace the Weight Loss!!!

        Walk to work in the cold. The cold more calories and energy used by your body.

  2. Y’know what it is? I think that gravity has increased slightly today – I’m up by about the same amount. Could have something to do with the fact that I didn’t exercise yesterday due to my derby injury, but let’s ignore that point and put it down to a temporary glitch in the laws of Newtonian Physics, mmkay? 😉

    • I’m right there with ya, sister!! And I hope you’re feeling better after your fall at roller derby 😦 Rub some arnica cream on it.. it’ll make the muscle aches and any bruising go away quickly! xxx

  3. Ok, i don’t get it! So you basically blog yesterday about tomorrow? 🙂
    And you did it wrong!!! You have to face the scale toward the WEST, not NORTH!!! That’s definitely the pound gain!!! 😀
    Although gravity is off at times, these days, too. It’s the economy, you know! It’s to blame for everything, including gravity …
    Ok, I guess I better stop leaving crazy comments on blogs before people stop blocking me!!!

    • I would never, ever block you!!! You help keep me sane! And now I remember, it is the west… I’ll face it that way tomorrow morning… and did I really get it backwards??? I meant that I blog today about yesterday… but if you pretend, for just a moment, that I’m Alice in Wonderland… then yes, I blog yesterday about tomorrow 🙂

  4. Down 31.9 pounds is amazing! I am so proud of you! You’ve set a goal and you’re sticking to it with exceptional results. BTW, your first paragraph was hilarious! Love you!
