All of summer stretched out before us...
Ahh, what a wonderful thought! Tomorrow is the last day of school, and I am not working this summer! (I used to always teach summer school.) This summer is wide open for me to spend quality time with my family and work on whatever I want! I'd... Read more
Hi! I have been following the Dukan diet now for almost four months (I started January 26) and I am down 30 pounds! That's enough that plenty of people are noticing and commenting, and I have been responding with, "Thank you! I'm really pleased ... Read more
Almost three months
I've been doing Dukan since January 26, so almost three months, and I'm now down 24 pounds. The weight is coming off more slowly now, and my weight loss graph has a lot of little zig zags, but the overall trend is still down. I have a lot of mot... Read more
Just wanted to quickly update and say I'm still at it with the Dukan diet...still in the "Cruise" phase and will be for a long time, until I reach my goal weight. It's still pretty easy to follow, as long as I'm always prepared in advance with f... Read more
First month of Dukan - DONE!
I have been following the Dukan Diet now for a month and I'm down 13 pounds so far, with almost 40 (36.6) pounds to go. That sounds like a lot when I put it that way... maybe I will decide I'm done sooner, I don't know. I'm a little hung up on w... Read more
It basically doesn't stop snowing here.
This picture was taken on my driveway today. There are walls of snow almost as tall as I am on either side. And 12-18 inches are predicted for tomorrow night into Sunday! ... Read more
Got my snow day...
My husband didn't know that we public school types have to make up all snow days at the end of the year. Today is my third snow day in less than two weeks - will we be in s... Read more
Welcome to February
I was down another .6 pounds today, to 189.6. Buh-BYE, 190s!
Yesterday was my first protein + vegetables day. I added spinach to my Dukan oat bran galette (a weird pancake that I actually have been making with wheat germ) and had a grilled ... Read more
I love that I'm already onto phase 2 of this diet! Phase one was called "Attack," and it was five days, and I lost 4.6 pounds in that time. (Actually, I gained 0.4 two days ago as I mentioned in my last post, and I gained 0.8 yesterday, which - ... Read more
Today I was up 0.4 pounds, but I'm not discouraged. For one thing, I had to weigh myself much earlier this morning, and I tend to weigh a little more when I have to wake up earlier. For another thing, well, TMI, but female cycle stuff happened. ... Read more
The Dukan Diet
The Dukan Diet is a fad diet book written by a French doctor. The French version came out in 2000 and the American version came out in 2011. So I'm a little late getting on board. Supposedly Jennifer Lopez, Giselle, and Kate Middleton (or her mo... Read more
I finally have a moment where Layla is napping and I'm in front of a computer (as opposed to my phone, where it would be hard to write a blog entry), and I have access to ph... Read more
Thank you to those who have been checking in on me and my apologies for not responding sooner! Layla is now 6 weeks and 2 days old, just over 41 weeks gestationally. She spent the first three weeks of her life in the special care nursery and we ... Read more
Layla Grace is here!!!
Surprise! I was only 35 weeks 1 day, but my water broke and the risk of infection was greater than the risk of prematurity, so I was induced. I had a fairly fast labor (Pit... Read more
This is a quick post from work for FITGIRL15, who continues to check in on me despite my major lack of keeping up with SP. As you can see, I've really popped! I wish I fel... Read more
