I am aiming to lose 40lbs before I start trying for number 3, however, I need to lose around 100 to get to goal!
I plan on using the dukan diet and half an hour a day on the wii fit. Praying this combo will work as I promised myself no baby until ive lost a minimum amount of weight. Would love a buddy if anyone else is using dukan or wii fit or has lots of weight to lose!
i'm on the dukan diet just now. lost 29lbs in the 8 weeks before christmas, took a break for 2 weeks (put on 13lbs but it was worth it!!!) and now i'm 2 weeks back into the dukan diet and have lost 16lbs!! (13 from before and 3 new) all whilst gearing up for my first period since september!! eek!
i'm aiming to lost another 4stone at least with a break in march for me and lo's birthday. hoping to lost a stone before then..
have you started the diet yet?? you might find you don't have much energy for exercise the first couple of weeks...tbh, you can still lose weight and do no exercise at first!! i took advantage of that quite a bit hehe!!
it is a really tough diet when the carb cravings kick in. i sometimes get to the point i smell chocolate, or rice or anything i cant eat haha!! it is worth it thogh, i love that it works so quickly. from august-october last year i was at the gym 6 hours a week and cut carbs out of evening meals and i stayed the same weight!! (joys of pcos!)
have you done the dukan diet before? you'll likely lose about 7-8lbs in the first week going up to a stone by 3 weeks
That would be great! thats crazy no crabs and gym with no weightloss? That must have been very bad for motivation? I know if I put effort into something with no results its tough. So far so good but im bad at drinking the water lol, never been a fan. Whats your fav food eith dukan? I totally really on prawns lol
yeah, i got a bit fed up of that situation! only good thing was it helped pull in muscles after baby!
i'm big on steak, sugar-free jelly and peri-peri chicken just now. i do things to death then get sick of them...i have sickened myself of extra-lean mince so i have put myself off chili big style!! i was also over drinking pepsi max, think my teeth were starting to suffer so i've stopped drinking it all together, on really weak no-added sugar robinsons now.
i found this website when i first did the diet a few years back and really helps keep a bit of variety in the diet...
Thanks for that shall have a look! Im finding already that mince in particular is so blah lol. Omg peri peri chicken that sounds so good! Will have to try that. Just completed 1 hour 15 on wii fit 600 kcal gone!
that's brilliant! well done...wish i had ur motivation for exercise...think i'll have to force myself back to the gym! haha! !
the peri-peri chicken is amaaazing...i get a whole chicken from tescos that's already marinated in it then don't eat the skin, but the flavour's still there
nandos is good for eating out too either on pp or pv days as there's always something u can eat on either day!
chicken stir-fry is another good one...dry fry chicken, add low salt soy sauce, garlic and chili flakes, add stir fry veg and water if u need to and it's done! so good!! you could add prawns to that too. anything that's easy is good for me!
when i was first on the diet and felt like cheating i would have either a vanilla or toffee muller light yogurt, a bit high in sugar, but not the worst, and can count as a tolerated. i was also spying the options hot chocolate in tescos and checking out the sugar/fat content, and i'm reckoning it's ok, as it's 5% sugar and 1% fat...better than than the cheese on toast i was tempted with last night anyway! haha!!
