Tuesday was a PP day.
Daily Weight Loss: -0.8 lb/-0.38 kg (so a little gain)
Total Weight Loss: 47.8 lb/21.73 kg
Warning… I’m a midwife… I deliver babies for a living and we have no problem discussing bodily functions… even at Denny’s at 3 a.m….
LOL… a teeny gain… the scales of woe… hehehe, simply my weekly teeny gain from, well not doing the one thing that you do when you eat lots of carbs… poop. Now, just because you don’t poop everyday on this diet doesn’t mean you are constipated (although that does happen to some people). I think for most though, it’s a few things happen.
- A reduction of food = a reduction of waste
- An increase in healthy food = your body uses it to it’s highest ability
- Like babies that are breastfed, you are feeding your body food it needs to survive, so it is using it.
That said… I think that after 4 or 5 days, I see this creep up in weight and then I poop and then all is right with the world again 😀 This is a short one because I’m packing for Hong Kong and have to be at work in an hour… yes, the scale is in the suit case!
Breakfast: 2 Tea Eggs… I’m going to experiment with this over the weekend and post my healthy version… the recipes I found online have sugar… the man downstairs in the shop says “no sugar, my eggs!” so I believe him 🙂
Lunch: Leftover turkey and 1 ounce of low fat mozzarella… it’s done and gone and even though technically not too Dukan friendly, every once in a while I’m gonna have cheese!
Afternoon snack: 1 tea egg & 1 regular boiled egg (my personal assistant brought me 2 eggs in the morning… she’s such a keeper!)
Dinner: I cut up a sirloin steak and simply stir-fried it with 4 garlic cloves… okay, maybe 6 or 7 garlic cloves, but who’s counting… I live alone and I love garlic.
Had an extra long walk because Vivien and I walked to Walmart on the way home, which is past my street, then walked to my flat… So probably a total of 3 miles of walking today.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
Quote of the week: Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
Seems China is quite Dukan friendly with the tea eggs being available in the corner shop. I could never imagine a corner shop in New Zealand or even a cafe selling boiled eggs. So I have taken to boiling half a dozen at a time and leaving in the fridge for my snacks – works a treat too as they leave me feeling surprisingly satisfied. Much more so than an apple ever could!
Yay!! That is exactly how I feel about it… when I’m back from Hong Kong on Sunday, I’ll take a picture of the shop. I live in a high-rise neighborhood, with shops on the bottom. It’s awesome! This shop also sells some big dumpling thingys that smell yummy… although I tell myself every morning that they smell yucky! 😀
Remember that many foods smell and look better than they taste. I sat in front of desserts during the holiday. The chocolate cake smelled so good. When tasted I thought it had no flavor at all.
Since I had to quit Dukan because of the constipation, be careful. I am better but am taking stool softeners every night. And am not pain free yet. I needed the oil back in my diet as well as the fiber from veggies. I was eating protein and not enough veggies.
Traveling again ?
You are doing great.
Thanks, Kath… I’ve taken to adding a bit of olive oil to my cooking when I know I need to go 🙂 And roasted pumpkin seems to do the trick, as well… LOL
Oh Happy Birthday. Have a great weekend. Enjoy it all !!!
Thanks! I think 48 is going to be great!
Day 101 sounds like a class in school. Can’t believe how well you have accomplished so much in so short a time. An a+ is due and you go to the head of your class. ❤ Mom
I always wondered about your tea-egg breakfasts but never bothered to look.. I had an idea in my head and I finally looked it up!!! for some reason in my mind they were somthing completely different!!! haha – they sound delicious!!!! Wikipedia gives a great recipe for them, might even try them!!
Have a great time in Hong Kong and and awesome birthday celebration!
I love this post! I mean, hey…we all poop…and this diet affects people in different ways, so it’s good to talk about it… 🙂
