Three times a charm!

Week 17 - Weight loss 3lbs (Total lost 42lbs)

Yay mini goal no 3 achieved, 3 stones!

Well a combination of being sick with a nasty cold and having very little food in the house has helped my to achieve mini goal number 3 (despite eating a naughty chocolate cookie yesterday). That means I can get my third charm for my bracelet when I go Christmas shopping next week : ) I'm thinking something festive like a little snowflake.

I'm so ready to be at consolidation right now, but I have to keep plugging away for another 2 stone before I reach my true weight. Realistically, taking Christmas in to account, another 12-15 weeks on the cruise phase.

I know it will be worth it in the end, but sometimes it's so hard to stay motivated sometimes.Especially now it's sooooo freezing cold, I'm longing for soup and a bread roll or stew with dumplings!

Countdown to Christmas

I haven't lost anything this week after a slightly indulgent weekend of booze and birthday dinners, but I'm just glad I haven't put anything on to be honest. I've got a week and a half till my xmas party, by which time I will hopefully have reached 3 stone lost and I've bought a slinky little dress to celebrate. The good thing is that as we're hosting the party I can make sure there are plenty of Dukan friendly nibbles - although I'm going to have to bend the rules a little with the alcohol again!

I love this time of year, perhaps this is mainly because I get 2 whole weeks of work at Christmas, but I just love it. The parties, shopping for presents, seeing my family, decorating the tree, carol concerts, snow! I think one of the things I'm looking forward to the most this year is roast potatoes and stuffing- my carb-filled present to myself for one day only : )

Progress photos

I know, I know - I've been really slack AGAIN with my blog! I've been doing heaps of overtime at work and it's generally been a horrible week, so I haven't felt much like posting. Anyway, I thought it would be a good time to post some progress photos:

Before the diet                                                     

And after losing 2 stone 7lbs

I've lost another 4lbs since these were taken, so when I get to my next mini goal of 3 stone I'll put another pic up.

I may have gone AWOL on the blog, but don't worry I haven't gone AWOL on the diet, here are the latest stats....

Week 15 weight loss 3lbs - total weight loss 39lbs

Hope everyone is doing well xx

Busy busy busy!

Well this week has been mad! I'm super busy at work right now, which is the excuse I'm using for being off the radar for a while. I work in events and advertising and yesterday was the biggest event of the year (which I'm responsible for organising!). Luckily all went well and I got plenty of exercise running around like a mad person. Anyway I digress, stats for this week:

Week 13 weight loss 2lb (total weight loss 34lb)

I have to admit I got home from work at 9pm last night and succumbed to a small chocolate lollypop which we bought for trick or treaters - I know it's naughty, but I felt like I earned it!

Really looking forward to this weekend - going to a bonfire night tomorrow, I love fireworks!!
