Day 124 – Cruise (PP)


Didn’t get to enjoy 77.5 long….that’s because 76.9 decided to say hello! No complaints here 😀

Breakfast: Yoplait ForMe Fruit Yoghurt

Snack: Sliced Turkey Breast

Lunch: Small amount of Roast Chicken and Onion & Chive Cottage Cheese

Snack: Yoplait ForMe Fruit Yoghurt

Dinner: 2 small Flathead Fillets with a dodgy sauce made up of Natural Yoghurt, Gherkins & Mustard….Do not try this one at home kiddos!

Snack: Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sundae

Drinks: Approx 2L Water & Coke Zero

Exercise: 20 minute walk on Mum’s treadmill 🙂


SW: 99    CW: 76.9 😀


Day 120 – Cruise (PP)


Yay, finally a drop in the scales. Just the boost I needed to get my chin up ready for the new week. 77.9 today, so 6.9kg till my final goal. Unfortunately I missed my mini goal deadline of 77kg, but I will try to achieve it as quick as I can.

I am being much stricter with what I eat, and I am slowly getting back into the ‘no carb cravings’ zone, which is a happy place to be 🙂

Today is the 31st of October in Australia…so that means the modest beginnings of Halloween Trick or Treaters trickling through the streets. Whilst Halloween is not something that has really been celebrated in Australia, shops are taking it on board selling cheap costumes and plastic fangs. I personally haven’t given lollies out to the handful of groups that have knocked on our door. I would doubt that many of the kids would even know what it is really about…me too for that matter! Do you celebrate Halloween? Please enlighten me, what is it all really about?

Breakfast: 2 Eggs and 2 Egg Whites Scrambled with 1/2 slice Kraft ‘Free’ Cheese

Late Lunch: Sliced Turkey, Chicken Breast & Pastrami and 1 skinless Chicken Drumstick

Snack: Yoplait ForMe Caramel Tart Yoghurt… very fancy individual ones…slightly higher in carbs than the others but oh so tasty

Dinner: Couple of tiny pieces of Beef Jerky (not very hungry)

Drinks: About 1.5L Water, 600mL Coke Zero, Chai Tea…yummy!

Exercise: Nothing today


SW: 99    CW: 77.9 😀

Day 119 – Cruise (PP)


I went up 100g to 78.8 this morning, which is a little disappointing after a strict PP day, but hopefully things will start to move again soon.

Breakfast: 2 Eggs & 2 Egg Whites scrambled with Garlic Powder and Onion Powder

Snack: Yoplait ForMe Fruit Yoghurt

Lunch: Steak with Seeded Mustard

Snack: 2/3 cup Bonox (Hot Beefy/Vegemitey drink)

Snack: 3 Double D Sugar Free Lollies

Dinner: 1 1/2 small Chicken Breast Fillets (they did have a thin coating of a flour based batter…it wasn’t too much though)

Drinks: Approx 1.5L Water and I don’t know how much Coke Zero (that means…way to much 😛 )

Exercise: Nothing today

I went to the movies tonight to see Paranormal Activity 2 (not by choice)….it was soooo scary!!! I was curled up in a little ball in the cinema seat by the end and hardly even watched the screen!! I made Brad tell me what was happening so I didn’t have to watch!! ^o^

Later on…Before I went to bed I weighed myself again and I was back to 78.4, so it looks like things are already starting to move 🙂


SW: 99    CW: 78.4

A bit of before and after…


Me before starting Dukan, actually about 3 months prior. Brad says this is a bad example of a before photo because I never really looked that big (just the perspective of the photo). Taken the same day as my profile pic on the blog.

OMG did I actually look like that?? 😦 (ignore the drunk eyes….it was a vodka party!) No wonder people are seeing a difference!

9 weeks after starting Dukan…(bad quality image, and I don’t really see too much difference)

And me a couple of weeks ago…(taken at night on my iMac…that’s why it looks so crappy! Eliminates all elements of a chin!)

Me and Brad at the wedding a couple of weekends ago…


Day 112 – Cruise (PP)


Thank goodness I lost the 0.4 today, so I had some kind of semi-respectable weight loss for the week!

I did a HUGE shop today and bought lots of Dukan friendly foods, and some sneaky tolerated ones as well, just to mix things up a bit. Variety is the spice of life!

I’m going to a party tonight of a good friend who is starting Dukan tomorrow! There might even be Dukan Friendly Foods there….who would have thought!?! Dukaneers taking over the world, one teensy step at a time! Happy Birthday Sarah!

Breakfast: Yoplait ForMe Banana and Honey Yoghurt

Snack: Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dessert (The sneaky tolerated I was speaking of! Definitely not an everyday food I nearly went into a sugar coma!)

Late Lunch: ‘Breakfast Sausage’ …recipe to come…with scrambled eggs made with 2 eggs, skim milk and 1/2 slice Kraft Singles ‘Free’ Cheese

Dinner: 1 Tofu Pancake

Snacks: Sliced Ham, Pickled Onions, Gherkins & 2 slices Salami

Drinks: 2L Water & Coke Zero

Exercise: Nothing 😦


SW: 99    CW: 78.4 😀

Stats (17)


After a very up and down week, both with eating and the scales, I am very grateful to say I have lost 0.5 overall.

I am planning to stay completely on track for this week – starting with the weekend, as they have seemed to be my downfall lately.

So to achieve my next goal deadline, which is one week from today, I need to lose 1.4 kg, I think that might be manageable as I’ve had a relatively little loss this week.

Starting Weight: 99.0kg
Current Weight: 78.4kg
20.6kg Lost in 16 Weeks
0.5kg lost this week 🙂

Starting Body Fat Content: 44.7%
Current Body Fat Content: 37.6%
7.1% Lost in 15 Weeks
0.1% Gained from last week 😦

Starting Water Content: 39.4%
Current Water Content: 42.0%
2.6% Gained in 15 Weeks
Down 0.2 from last week 😦


SW: 99    CW: 78.4 🙂

Day 110 – Cruise (PV)


Wow! down to 78.8 today….even after my disastrous dinner yesterday 😛 I’m not going to complain, but I also won’t get into a habit of eating crap…I promise!

Breakfast: Oat Bran Porridge

Snack: Sliced Chicken Breast and Onion & Chive Cottage Cheese

Lunch: Salad with Chicken Breast

Dinner: Bacon and Eggs

Snack: Skinny Cow Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream!!! It was movie night and my good friend Karlie bought it for me 😀 I haven’t had one in weeks, so I enjoyed it sooooo much! It’s a new flavour and tastes exactly like the real thing!!

Drinks: Can’t remember how much Water…I’m thinking not enough 😦

Exercise: I played active games with the kids at school today for about an hour. My heart rate wasn’t up, but at least I was moving.


SW: 99    CW: 78.8 😀
