I find that setting up an Excel spreadsheet document to record the progress in weight loss has been very motivational, as seeing the line going down on the chart inspires me to carry on! I must admit, I have been having ‘off days’ these last few weeks as work and uni has taken over my life, but I have thankfully stayed the same and my weight loss currently stands at 1 stone 1lb since starting Dukan, another half a stone fell off before starting by doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred - I cannot recommend this DVD enough! It’s hard work, but only involves less than 30 minutes per day of exercise, and the results show! I lost 9lbs previously by solely doing the DVD, no healthy eating or anything! I put 2lbs back on after I finished it but total weight loss now stands at 22lbs.
The scales do seem to go up and down during the week, depending on what I have eaten, but choosing a set day to record the actual weight loss shows the actual loss, or the annoying ‘STS’ (stay the same!) days.
This is what my weight loss chart is showing at the moment.
Even if the scales don’t show a drastic loss, the measuring tape is definitely my friend! Since starting, I have lost 3 inches around my bust, 2 around my waist, 2 off my hips and 2 from my thighs.
Has anyone been inspired to do the Dukan Diet after seeing the progress of other Dukaners?
