I just had to share--I'm back into my jeans for the first time in a LONG time! I've been living in my stretchy yoga pants because wearing any of my pants with actual zippers in them felt like being in an all day Heimlich Maneuver!
I've still got a way to go, but I have the hang of the Cruise Phase of the Dukan Diet now and it isn't hard. I'm doing two Attack Days a week, on Mondays and Fridays and for special meals, such as cell group or family dinners, I am making exceptions and eating normally--just obeying the rule not to have second helpings.
This morning my work team and I had a breakfast meeting at an all day breakfast restaurant with a not especially healthy menu. Before leaving home I had a galette, and then at the restaurant I asked if I could order a la carte. I ordered two poached eggs and peameal bacon, as it is Friday, Attack Day. Two of my colleagues ordered the same thing! It was so filling I ended up with two slices left over to package up for lunch.
On my way home from work, I stopped at our shiny new recreation centre to check out the gym memberships and discovered that being over 60 has a discount. Bonus!!! I took the information home to consider, but I think I'm signing up this weekend as I pass by it on the way home and it would be a perfect ending to my day to pop in and get in 25 minutes or so of walking on the track or treadmill. They have exercise classes too, and all included in the membership.
Happy? Yes! Hopeful? You bet!
