Thailand & Dukan Day 87

Tuesday was a PP day… For the most part πŸ™‚

Daily weight loss: Gain 2.8 lb/1.3 kg – Yikes!
Total weight loss: 38.7 lb/17.6 kg

The scales of woe are upon me! I’m not freaking out or anything, I am on vacation, but yuck! It had been a bit challenging to get the right balance of food here in Thailand, in regard to Dukan. They are mostly vegetarians, so very little meat goes into some of their dishes.

For the most part, I did have a PP day yesterday.
Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with onions in it.
Lunch: tofu on a stick and a couple of pieces of fried fish (no batter) while everyone else ate this….
MY LUNCH…

Afternoon snack: beef jerky
Dinner: grilled pork and curried chicken, but I dipped the chicken in tea to get the curry gravy off 😦
And that was it! I definitely got my water in, but I haven’t had my bran in a couple of days (going to ask them to sprinkle in my eggs this morning).

We had a great time, again. We took a van down to the southern most part of Thailand and got on a high-speed boat which took us through some beautiful river. He then slowed down and went through a maze of channels into the mangrove forest. This reminded of my childhood when we used to explore the mangroves with the environmental studies center. We saw lots of different snakes in the trees above our heads. It felt like a real Disney Jungle cruise!

We were then taken to a Burmese Junk, where we were given the choice of soaking up some sun or taking a paddle canoe out… I chose the first option and soaked up some Vitamin D πŸ™‚ Karen and Dominique went exploring.

After an hour they served up a delicious lunch… But I was a good girl. We were then taken to a deserted beach for some R$R. The beach is on the border of Thailand and Vietnam. Lots of crabs to chase and take pictures of. I took a nice long walk on the beach.

Then back to Elephant Hills for a good night’s sleep.

Ciao!

  1. Oh my goodness! My jaw dropped when I saw your lunch compared to everyone else’s lunch…you are a strong woman!

    And I love the pictures you’ve been posting — it really helps us to live your adventure with you. πŸ™‚

  2. Do not worry about the weight. Just eat very slowly, Chew at a snail pace, enjoy the food with your mind and your taste buds. Stop between bites ( do deep breathing and relax). Stay on PV. No PP till you can control your food more. Good job with the fluids. You can sprinkle bran into your tea let sit for a few minutes. Do not worry about cooking it.

    Your pictures so a great treat. Thank you.

  3. well, your lunch did look meager in comparison with everybody else’s … but you are living your adventure in the right spirit!!!!! Not only food counts πŸ™‚
