I was braved & weighed myself, worse than I thought :-(

Post  Louise67 on Thu Apr 29, 2010 11:44 am

Hi All,

I took the plunge & weighed myself today & I mentioned I thought I was 14 stones or thereabouts... wishful thinking I am 15 st 4 lb, but still fit in a size 16 Goodness knows how though.. Embarassed
Anyway at least I know now. I am on Day 4 of Attack & am wondering should I stay on Attack for 10 days because I weigh more than I thought. What does anyone think about this please?

Thanks all & I hope you are all ok too Very Happy

Love Lou flower

7 or 10 days

Post  Francesca on Sat May 01, 2010 12:12 pm

Hi Louise,

I'm on day 7 now and I have about a stone more than you to lose. I'm going to stick to 10 days as I still feel pretty good on the Attack phase at the moment and my energy levels are pretty good. I would wait till you get to around day 7 to may that call. See how you feel, if its starting to take its toll on you then its probably time to move on to the next stage but if not then you have nothing but weight to lose by going on to day 10.
Listen to your body, it will tell you if it needs veggies.
Good Luck
Francesca

Hi Francesca,

Thanks for your message. I am on day 6 today & ok, though I did feel spacey for a few hours this morning, I am not sure why though. I think I will do PP for the whole 10 days. I got my Dukan book today aswell so nice & early, plus I follow Simons Blog he has delicious recipes too.
I wont be weighing myself again until I go back to work ( Tuesday), as I use the calibrated despatch scales there lol, they are accurate & thats the main thing. Then after that I will weigh myself weekly. Hope you are feeling ok on this too. I have done so many different diets but I am telling myself this time it will be different, but I am taking each day at a time & not going to set myself upto fail. I got lots of allowed spices & herbs today just to jazz things up a bit. sunny


Hope to hear from you soon,

Bye for now,
Lou flower

Lost 4lbs

Post  Louise67 on Tue May 04, 2010 2:59 pm

Hi All,

Hope you all ok. I have decided to have my weigh in every Tuesday & after weighing myself today I weigh 15 stone so I have lost 4lb since Friday just gone. I am really pleased about this. I am unsure as to the whole amount that I have lost in Attack as I was too scared to weigh myself until the 4th day of attack & I really wished I had now, never mind though.

How is everyone else doing ?

Congrats Louise!

I'm plugging away, had a setback not from anything naughty I ate, but from monthly hormones and sodium retention related to my thyroid issues. Hopefully that will balance out this week, but right now I am bummed out. Sad

But sounds like things are going fabulously for you! Keep it up! Very Happy

Hi Ladies,

Thanks everso much. I have trouble with weight too apart from eating too much of the wrong things I am also on Livial tablets & Prostap Injections because I have had terrible period problems for years & I have had every medical procedure you could think of to help apart from a Total Hysterectomy , which I will be having sometime this year. The tabs & inj. turn my ovaries off & stop me suffering ,but as a side effect they made me put off approx a stone & a half of the 4 stone which I need to lose, so it is even harder, but thats not an excuse, it's just how it is. I am very hopeful that this is the diet for me, because to be totally honest it doesn't feel like a diet. I have been on the Cambridge Diet & Lighter Life & I did lose weight on these but I didn't keep it off & to do those diets was much harder, I couldn't do them again.

Sorry you are bummed out Missgrey, hope you feel better soon us women have lots to put up with don't we & I still insist I have a Thyroid problem even though the test was negative as I have all the symptoms of an underactive thyroid, I just need to convince my doctor to give me an extremely low dosage trial of thyroxine

Take care all & speak soon,
Love Lou flower

Hi Paris,

How do I see your diary, sorry I'm not that great on these types of things. Also can you talk online on here do you?

Thanks,

Lou flower

PS Blooming periods, they have been the bane of my life, I am waiting for a total Hysterectomy bounce

Congrats Louise!

2 pounds is way better than no pounds! Congrats and stick with it - 2 pounds a week is actually a really healthy, sustainable weight loss. Keep that up and you'll be at your goal weight before you know it!
