Dukan Diet Week 4

This week I am making some changes, I am not going to look at my weight on the scales this week, I find I get disappointed and loose focus when I don’t see the results I want. So I will get my partner to write down my weight daily and I wont look till the end of the week. It will be tough but I think it will help mentally.

Week 4 Roundup

YES! I have reached my first goal today at the end of week four! 69.8kg! yay! SO SO happy to finally see this number on the scales, I have been trying to get here for at least a year and a half, thank you DUKAN and thank you ZUMBA!

Well I managed to not look at my weight for a whole 3 days during the week… but it¬†definitely kept me focused, I could just believe I was loosing weight and doing awesome and the motivation was high. I will try again next week to only do a weekly weigh in. I also discovered when you reintroduce sugar to your diet you turn into a crazy energetic person, a natural sugar high is really cool, hence the 2 1/2 hour dance session on friday!

I have also started reading a book called¬†The Gabriel Method– my mum says it’s changed her life. The book is about loosing weight by getting your mind in the right place, by addressing all the psychological things that contribute to weight gain, should be pretty interesting.

 Total weight loss this week: 1.4kg
 Total Exercise: 6.45 hours (plus what ever a bowling game is)
