My Weight Loss Progress Report

Progress Report:

I may have quit blogging for a while but the GOOD news is…I did not stop dieting. In fact, I’ve barely every cheated and if I do have something that is considered a “no-no” on the “oui-oui” diet, it was just an itty bitty bite. During Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, I did have a couple of glasses of my favorite red wine.  The day after Thanksgiving I had actually lost weight (over 1/2 lb.) The day after Christmas I had gained a pound and a half but it fell off quickly. The day after New Years, I was down two-tenths of  a pound. 

I’m proud to say that this morning I reached another milestone…under 140 lbs. I was thrilled. I have been tracking my progress on a spreadsheet and weighing every day. I started out losing about 2 lbs a week. I realized after about 8 weeks that my weight loss was slowing. I now lose about 1 and a 1/2 lbs per week…and really, that is nothing to complain about. With my adjusted 1 and a half pound per week progress, I should be at my goal weight around the first week of June. Just in time to actually be able go to a place where I can wear a bathing suit. It will be fabulous. 

Let me know how you’re doing on your diet.  As Dr. Dukan says, “Just keep going!”

Daily Progress (Monday)

Filed under: Results — Brenda @ 11:13 pm

 I am now 2 weeks into this diet and I HAVE lost weight…about 8.4 lbs. Today the scales showed a drop of almost a pound. This is after a four day stall (or plateau as I have always called it.)  But, I am not giving up! I have not really cheated at all so far. If anything, I’m eating WAY LESS than I should be, which has probably kicked my metabolism into “Starvation Mode”. I need to change this behavior so…


…today, I had a wonderfully big breakfast on my PP Cruise day. Turkey Sausage, 3 Eggs (1 Yolk) scrambled with a NF Sharp Cheese slice and some chopped Canadian Bacon. I forgot about lunch, however. I was just too busy at work. So, now it is dinner time. I plan to have some NF Cottage Cheese and some leftover Roast Beef I cooked last night.


Yesterday, I tried a recipe for OatBran Cookies. They were AWFUL! I’m going to change up the recipe and post it here if I can improve them any.


(If it seems as though I’m obsessed with eating food…or managing food…or planning to eat food…or not eating food…you’re right.)
