Dukan phase 2 pv day

I need to go back and look at my days. Today is a protein and veggies day. I’ve packed my lunch and I entered it all on my fitness pal. Lunch and breakfast 484 calories. And I packed a lot!

I weighed in this morning at 275.7. I feel good and things are looser for sure.  Goal for this week is to get to the gym at least 3 times. I’m going to focus on strength training rather than just cardiovascular. I feel like I’m still too heavy and I worry about stressing out my knee or making it worse. My sugars this morning were at 116. I think they are leveling down a lot considering they used to be 130 in the morning. 

I’m sick of hard boiled eggs and sick of chicken. I’m going to research more recipes with fish and shrimp and slow cooker choices.

I’ve been making soups with bone broth chicken and steak with shirataki noodles. Really yummy. And really filling. I’ve lost my appetite tho. It’s so weird. Like I feel like I’m only hungry once or twice a day. I kinda make myself snack on something. I realize more than ever how much eating and boredom go hand in hand for me. I’m looking forward to shedding this weight slow but surely.


Dukan phase 2

I have to look at my calendar but I finished Attack phase on Sunday. My job sent me to an impromptu training Monday and Tuesday and I broke the diet a little bit. I did a PP day yesterday and today is PV. I weighed in at 276.4 this morning but I didn’t have time to check my sugars. I’ll make sure I do it tomorrow morning. Aunt Flo is visiting and I’m pretty miserable. Really fast and heavy. Sorry for the tmi. 

So far the lessons of this diet have been: you can get sick of food in large quantities and never want to eat it again. Tea is your best friend in winter to get your water intake up. Everything in Palm size portions. I’m really not that hungry anymore. I realized I never was. Just mindless eating to fill the time. I ordered bonebroth from Thrive market. I had a cup of it like tea last night. It was interesting. Idk. I’m sleeping better which is a plus. Not quite as well as I would like to be. 

That’s about it. Just little by little doing my best. I do feel like an addict. The temptation to eat everything in sight is always there. 

Dukan Diet: Attack Phase Day 3

I am tired. Like sick of food tired. No joke.

Weigh in: 280.5 (down 7 lbs)
Sugars: 112 (first day was 134)

The blog is def keeping me honest and I’m trying to update it in my day and publish at night.

I’m stressed with work. I feel full and tired and have a migraine brewing.

Took a 2 hour nap. I need a shower and I feel like I can sleep again.

Breakfast: Hard Boiled Egg
Lunch: fish fillet
Dinner: kosher beef hot dogs
Snacks: sugar free jello, mozzarella sticks

PS> I went out for an all nighter with my friend. I ate tuna salad and butterflied shrimp and then at 8am steak and eggs
I had suddenly ridiculous energy. No joke. I was flying around the casino.


Dukan Attack Phase – Day 2

So this is kinda day 3… I pseudo started on Monday and thus there was a drop in weight between those days.

Weigh-in 283, sugar 111

I’m cooking chicken breast in the slow cooker right now and I have a steak for later.

Breakfast: omelet and chicken sausage lunch: steak dinner: chicken slow cooker with chili spices snack: steamed shrimp, tilapia, smoked oysters, sugar free jello, oat bran, diet coke

I felt so hungry today and then I went crazy on seafood. Now I’m in bed in a protein coma. I’m actually one half feeling great and the other half soooo exhausted. So I guess that sugar and carb addiction is showing through now.

I promised myself I wouldn’t cook tomorrow. I’ve got tons of leftovers. They got to go before I open or cook anything else. Famous last words probably. I got some seltzer water from the grocery… hoping that keeps me full. 

Oh and in other news… My dog has gone psycho from all the food smells. 

Dukan Attack Phase – Day 1

It doesn’t help that I have a stressful job but it does help in stopping me from grazing all day. πŸ™‚

Morning weigh in 285, sugar 134.

Breakfast: Omelette; fat-free chicken sausage
Lunch: Pork loin from the slow cooker; chicken from the slow cooker
Dinner: Chicken, Shrimp, Pork, cream cheese
Snacks: Turkey, Ham, cream cheese, hard boiled egg

No joke I was feeling disgustingly stuffed all day. Even as I was stressed I just couldn’t eat.

Watched a movie with my roommate in the evening and then decided to clean out our tupperware cabinet. lol I don’t know why I was nesting but it felt good to get it done.

Big start – Dukan Diet: Attack Phase

So according to the Dukan calculator my ideal weight is 182 pounds. I am currently 287 pounds. They say if I follow the program that it will take 474 days on the cruise phase to lose the weight. I will give myself all the time I need to lose it without stressing that it will take forever. Day by day just making better choices.

Reverse Psychology

Seems when I tell myself that I am going on a diet I end up eating and binge eating at that, everything in sight. I feel like when I tell my plans or pour my heart out to my close friends I end up doing the opposite of my plans. I feel like I’m hardwired to fail and to fail spectacularly.

I decided to come back to blogging instead of talking it out with others. I found a Weight Watchers meeting that I want to go to this week. I’m debating to find an OA group but I’m still in enough denial that I don’t want to hear anyone’s sad story. I’m trying to work through that. I know I will hear stories that mirror my own and I’m not prepared psychologically to hear it and not run home or to a fast food place and binge.

I went to the grocery store yesterday and got a ton of food for the Dukan attack phase. I slow cooked a pork loin and I have chicken tenders in the slow cooker now. This week I just want to snack on proteins and follow the attack phase. I enjoyed the Dukan diet when I did it back in 2012. I lost 13 kilos then.

I appreciate constructive and positive feedback. But if I feel comments are to stress me out I will prob delete them. I’m going to blog the journey and hopefully my reverse psychology will work.

Be safe and take care of yourself.
