Week 3: 10.3 Kgs / 23Lbs lost!!

Ok, so it has been another week since I’ve been here, so it’s time for a little update. Week 3 of my Dukan diet experience went by with some agony and distress! As my official weighing point is on Monday morning, I noticed on Thursday that I really had not lost all that much weight just yet.  I was concerned the days of a full stop (which Dr. Dukan describes in his book) had arrived. So naturally, I had to come up with a plan. I decided that my body was protesting and preserving all the food because it wasn’t getting as much anymore as it used to. So to stir up some trouble, I started eating a lot on the days where I had to restrict myself to protein & vegetables, which means I ate tons of chicken, meat, lettuce, and other products that were allowed. Boiled eggs, wrapped them in smoked turkey and ham, and ate it as a snack at night and so on. The next day, the protein only day, I refrained from eating a lot, just ate the bare essentials and basically starving myself to the point where I just went to bed early so I would not be hungry anymore.

Now, all of the above is self taught and may not necessarily be ‘Dr. Dukan approved’ but it worked its charm. After the two days had passed, I already lost 1.6 kilos and kicked my body back into its weight loss routine.

Now some other things that require a lot of personal strength are social situations such as birthdays, business lunches & diners, receptions, weddings etc.

This week, I had the pleasure of having two birthdays in a row. As (bad)luck would have it, my favorite cake is a hazelnut cream cake, and of course that’s the cake my family ordered on my brothers b-day. So at 3:00 pm, we all gathered to drink coffee and have some amazing cake, and this guy was sitting in, ‘n-joying’ a bowl of fat free, skim yoghurt. I’m telling you, life is not fair!!

Anyways, it all pays off to be strict and follow your diet to the letter, because here we are, Monday morning, exactly three weeks after I first started with Dr. Dukan, and I have lost a dazzling 10.3 kilos / 23 Lbs! My dad isn’t the most supporting of characters, so he said he’s doubtful I’ll make it to my goal weight and has even put some money on it. It’s a bet I am willing to take this time and I WILL PROVE HIM WRONG!!

By for now, please share your stories in the comment boxes or send me an e-mail. Would love to hear from fellow warriors out there!

About dirksdukanexperience

This blog is about my lifelong struggle with obesity and nutrition. I decided that the year 2011 should bring me something good and instead of waiting for this to happen, why not make it happen myself? I decided to turn a new leaf and start on (yet another) new diet that I heard such raving reviews about: The Dr. Dukan Diet. Read all about my road to my ideal goal weight, and the struggles and achievements that undoubtly will accompany me on this journey. Happy reading and I hope this blog will inspire someone out there to start making that important change in his/her life. If that happens, I will not have done this for nothing. Live well, eat healthy! Love, Dirk
