Day 61, A New Low

Yesterday, Bob and I took a day off to spend with our dog, Crouton. Yes, you heard it right. We took a vacation day to stay at home, in our pajamas, and cuddle up next to Crouton all day. We both love to travel but miss Crouton terribly when we do. And now that so much of our time is spent volunteering each weekend and we’re in need of saving money for my Master’s program, it only seemed right that we stayed home and did what would make all three of us happy!

I weighed in yesterday at 16.6 lbs; a HUGE personal accomplishment!! Not only because I’ve been stuck in the 118s forever but because I haven’t been under 117 lbs my entire adult life. I know it’s only .4 lbs but it just shows how far I’ve come. It was not too long ago that I was at the peak of my weight gain and now I’m at the valley of my weight loss. I. AM.THRILLED!

Tonight, Bob and I have a Casino Fundraiser Event to attend for the organization we volunteer at: WAGS (Westminster Adoption Groups and Services). It should be a fun night filled with casino games, silent auctions, and food. All proceeds go to the animals! Hopefully we can resist the non-Dukan friendly foods..

Well, I hope everyone has a nice, relaxing weekend to recharge and be ready to take on the next week! šŸ™‚

  1. Well done!!! Love love love your blog, its helped me realise that there is so much more to dukan than just a diet, this morning I made your bread for the first time and I’m shocked at how awesome it is. Well done on your weight loss! x

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you liked the bread recipe. I make that recipe several times a week and it really helps with my carb cravings. I think with the Dukan Diet, it really helps to have a dish you can turn to that’ll balance out the flavors of all of the protein you’re consuming. How long have you been on the diet?

  2. Congrats Julee! You’re just going from strength to strength, its such a liberating feeling isn’t it. I have tried a few more of your recipes out and they have been a big hit! I loved the Shiritaki noddles (pan-seared garlic noodles) and Tim said your No Bean Chilli was the best I have ever made! High praise indeed šŸ™‚ Thanks again for all your hard work. xoxo

    1. It makes me soooo happy to hear you and Tim are enjoying my recipes. Bob and I joke about how I’m actually better at cooking Dukan-style than I am normally! haha But more than anything I think this diet has just encouraged me to cook more due to all of the restrictions. Being able to eat whatever I wanted before made it too easy to eat poorly and became very destructive to my health. It’s true, I feel more free now than ever!!
