Dukan – Consolidation Day 449 of 550

I can’t believe that I’ve been in Phase 3 aka Consolidation for 449 days! And that I’ve maintained my weight loss! And that I’m still wearing size 8 jeans and pants. And that it’s almost been 2 years since I started this journey. Time flies. With the exception of a 12 pound weight gain when I went to Australia, I’ve maintained a stable weight between 155 and 165.

Dukan’s True Weight: 165
Starting Weight: 255
Lowest Weight: 144 (I looked to thin at this weight, and decided 155 range was better for me).
Today’s Weight: 158

I’m happy with that. I’m happy with me. I’m happy in general πŸ™‚

I’m walking everyday, sometimes twice! And I’ve started Couch to 5K again, because Tiffany wants to do it. I amped up my workouts….

Ignore that personal best pace… Sometimes RunKeeper screws up, lol.

Breakfast: 2 eggs
Snack: FF Greek yogurt
Lunch: 2 lean sirloin burgers with grilled onions (of course no bun)
Dinner: 4 pork spare ribs and asparagus spears steamed
Snack: FF Greek yogurt with Splenda and 2 Tbs flax seed meal

Water: 3+ liters
Exercise: Walk in morning (4.7 miles), 45 minutes of yoga, moved all boxes out if my 5×10 storage unit to get to the desk in the back and moved them back in.

Some pic from my walks this week:






I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

    • Sunrise… I get up around 535 and out the door by 550. Cool enou at that hour.
      My evening walks are usually after the sun has set and its cooled off a bit πŸ™‚

  1. Wow! Sandy I have 2 q’s if you could please help me with…how much oil do you use daily? And do you alternate PP/PV, or 2 days of each? I KNOW I am using too much fat to cook with…

    • Hi Ana… Always happy to answer questions!
      I usually use 2 Tbs of either coconut oil or olive oil when I cook. I consider them healthy oils. When I cook my eggs, I smear a little olive oil on a paper towel and pie it in the pan, so I’d say a “smidge” of oil then.
      I’m in part 2 of Consolidation, so I’m allowed to celebration meals a week. My schedule typically goes:
      Monday: PP
      Tuesday: PV
      Wednesday: PV with celebration meal at dinner
      Thursday: ALWAYS a PP day (Dr. Dukan’s recommended PP day)
      Friday: PP
      Saturday: PV
      Sunday: PV with a celebration meal at dinner.

      My “celebration” typically includes sweet potatoes or crinkle cuts potatoes and a glass of wine. Sometimes a dessert.
      My diet is completely gluten free.

  2. Sandy, as always, you are so inspiring! I applaud you for not only sticking with your weight-loss journey but also for sharing it so others can benefit! Truly awesome!
