Today’s weight: 70
Weight loss since starting Dukan: 6.5kg
Total overall weight loss since June: 10kg
So, you may or may not have noticed that I didn’t post what I ate yesterday…I was hiding, you see. Very ashamed of what I ate yesterday…but the reason why I started this blog is to keep me accountable. That means, no hiding…total accountability of what I eat…when I fail, when I’m bad…not just to show successes. So, here goes.
I had 4 Skinny Cow ice-cream blocks, 1 Skinny Cow Sundae and a Bulla Caramel sundae (250+ calories in ONE cup) yesterday. Pretty appalling. There’s now no more Skinny Cows in my house…and hopefully I stop becoming a FAT Cow.
I didn’t put on weight…lost 0.5kg since yesterday actually, but it’s as I first summarized, I was carrying a lot of water weight and I probably just got rid of it after having a PP (+ skinny cow) day yesterday.
I’m on a PV day today, so I guess I’ll probably put on some weight tomorrow…but if I stick with Dukan’s regime strictly for the rest of the week…I’m fairly confident I can get below 70 this week. I’m still sick, but I might even see if I can go for a slow stroll today.
I can’t wait till I lose a total of 10kg on the Dukan, when I get there, I’ll post a before/after pic!
Oh…and on another note. This morning, when I read How Stuff Works, Marshall Brain’s Dukan blog, a comment someone made, made me really cross. Someone commented on his blog that he transgresses a lot and that he should stick to it more blah, blah, blah. And that just made me angry. It makes me angry that people are so happy to hold the stick and lecture people who are on a diet. (This person who commented had yet to start the Dukan!)
Look, we ALL know that ice-cream, chocolate, fried foods, loads of pasta, sweets make us fat. None of us actually delude ourselves that we’re being healthy when we eat Pizza!! If it was so easy for us, NONE of us would be overweight!! Being overweight is WAY more than that, it’s a psychological thing, it’s an emotional thing…it is DEFINITELY not just about being motivated!
It makes me cross when people say, “Just don’t eat so much!”…they just have NO idea! Do you think it’s liberating for us when we eat ice-cream? Do you think that I thought, “Oh, ice-cream! Calcium!”…no, it is NOT like that. When I eat transgress and when I binge and I eat this, it’s never a “Oh my god, that’s so good” sort of feeling, it is filled with guilt and regret…but our mind is strong…and I can’t stop.
Oprah is the most successful woman in Showbiz…pretty significant when you see she had an abused childhood, she’s African-American, and if someone like Oprah, is battling with her weight, do you seriously think it’s just linked to motivation? Someone like Oprah to get where she did, would have had to be someone who is pretty driven and motivated. So for all those people out there who think it’s just about, ‘not eating so much’…maybe you should just keep your thoughts to yourself…cos it’s really not that easy.
We are all on our own weight loss journey, and it’s not easy…and what you say is not ‘constructive criticism’…you’re just judging.
