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 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.

God this diet feels daunting now!

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.
