Time to Re-Focus on the basics of the Dukan Diet
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Well, after being within 0.1 pound of losing 35 pounds for weeks, the frustration has been rising. It didn't help that within this time period I was stung by a bee and had a very nasty reaction; got put on prednisone, antibiotics, etc. and still can't wear my wedding ring! (I got stung on my ring finger) So, along with all of that, and dealing with the news of my mother's newly diagnosed lymphoma, it's been rather stressful. So now that all of the excuses are on the table, I'll explain what my short comings were: I simply didn't follow the plan of having a PP/PV alternating day routine. I was somehow having PV/PV days and still wondering why I wasn't seeing any results on the scale! I broke out the book again and read it and realized that even adding little things (guilty) can cause poor results (or no results!).
Yesterday, I was back on track - all the way. You'll never believe what happened: Yep, finally hit that 35 pound weight loss mark that 's been taunting me for weeks! I guess there are rules for a reason! I could have done a cartwheel - but I'm sure that would have caused many other problems! (hehe). So, the little salad for lunch on a PP day is a no-no. Having veggies at every dinner meal is also a no-no on PP days. I'll be much more focused on PP/PV days and keeping them as they were intended.
I'm back on track!
