The re-invention of a blog

Hello Everybody!!

For the longest time I have thought about starting a new blog, to document and share another side of me, the side that is bursting with new experiences and ideas….but then I thought, Why not keep going with the blog I have here?? Sounds pretty simple but it took me a long time to realise that! 😛

So I have decided…drum roll please…This will no longer be exclusively My Dukan Diary, but rather a record of everything I love 😀 and about this I am very happy.

The beautiful thing about this is that ALL of the posts and information about the Dukan Diary still exists within the archives of this blog. All you have to do is do a search for a recipe, or some information, and voila! There it will be. (The blog will also have the same address, because that’s how people know me). But from here on in I want to share more than just what I eat and how much weight I have lost.

If you are new to the Dukan Diet, in the words of Hamish and Andy, ‘Welcome’. My name is Lauren and I lost 20kg following this lifestyle. It works! and for the most part (fingers crossed) I have remained 20kg lighter. Please use my blog as a reference. Feel free to ask any questions at all and I will do my absolute best to answer them. PLEASE leave comments about how you are going because I just love hearing!!

But on to some exciting things…..I am in living JAPAN! That’s right, if you didn’t know, that’s why the big blogging absence! I moved to Japan on January 5, 2011, to work for Peppy Kids Club and teach English to Japanese children. Before I get too carried away and share 2 months with you in one post, I am going to say ‘Goodnight’ and promise that I have a lot of exciting things to share. Who knows, I might try to Dukanify a Japanese recipe for you (in my hallway of a kitchen! LOL….photos to come!)

  1. Lovely to hear from you again. Dave and I wish you a wonderful stay in Japan. Both of us reached our goal weight (he was there a week before me but waited so that we could both start Thursday-PP-day-for-life together). Our only advice, DO NOT GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT!

    • Congratulations!!! That is fantastic news you made it to your goal 🙂 I love hearing about when people reach their goal weights and how fantastic that you two got to do it together! xo

    • 😀 I’m living in Ueda, Nagano Prefecture. It’s 40 minutes by regular train outside of Nagano where the winter olympics was a while back. It’s a really beautiful place. Where did you live in Japan??

      • I lived in Hamamatsu in Shizuoka-Ken, I would love to go back for a visit, maybe in 2012 to do the Shikoku Pilgrimage. 🙂

  2. It’s so good to see you back blogging Lauren – we’ve all missed you! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures in Japan, I’m sure you will have the most amazing experiences and enjoy the opportunities that come your way. Keep smiling, Sue xxx 😉

  3. Yay, I’m back in the world of blog too! How exciting to hear about your move to Japan. I find Japanese culture fascinating and I can’t wait to hear all about your experiences! xx
