Dukan – Day 115

Tuesday was a PV day.

Daily Weight Loss: -0.7 lb/-0.3 kg
Total Weight Loss: 51.1 lb/23.21 kg

Well… I seem to be stuck in a rut! I’ve been playing with the same 1 pound for a week! This morning I am evaluating what it is that’s going on and I think it’s a combination of a few things… I’m still consuming more coffee and tea than usual (Lucy is visiting and makes me a cup… how can I say no??). And I am not getting in enough water. Otherwise, my food intake has been great, as has my exercise.

The one thing that I really like about the Dukan Diet is that you weigh yourself daily and this gives you the opportunity to reflect on what could be affecting your weight and you can correct it.

Breakfast: 2 tea eggs, coffee
Lunch: Fish and garlic stems, tried to get water, but it had sugar in it 😦
Snack: Coffee
Snack: Earl Gray (when I got home from work)
Dinner: Stir-fried tofu,Β broccoli, onion and garlic stems.
Snack: Pot of FF Greek Yogurt with Splenda and bran, Earl Gray tea (anyone seeing a pattern here???)

So today I’m going to commit to one cup of coffee this morning and a cup of Early Gray tonight and that’s it… the rest is water… wish me luck πŸ™‚

  1. Water is so important, it helps process the proteins and when you can not find water it has to be fluids. You have to drink coffee if nothing else is available right?

    It is only one week. But is there another pattern going on? How close to True weight.?
    No answers needed, just thinking. Something going on with your body??

    You are doing great.

    • I have water available, but the coffee is so yummy πŸ™‚

      I think my body is trying to balance itself out… I’ve still got a ways to go to be at true weight… Kath.. thanks so much for your wisdom!

  2. I try to keep up the water intake, I am sure it said something in the book about moving the toxins through the body. I kind of figure if the body is burning fat it must be releasing stuff which needs to be washed out of the body. I usually really struggle to drink water but I’ve made a real effort to do it as I want the fat gone.

    You have been losing on a regularly daily basis for quite a while – could your body just be going through re-adjustment with a whoosh around the corner? Daily weighing does help us re-evaluate our actions and gives us the nudge we need when the losses stop coming. Keep up your great effort – you certainly have it tough doing it in China where you don’t know the food as well as us who are doing it in our native language and supermarkets we know so well.

  3. Hm, reflecting on your quote, as I really want to kick more than one person’s a** these days … which isn’t pretty during the Season of Peace and Joy!
    Keep up the great work … I will try to be more serene πŸ™‚
