I’m considering myself at the halfway mark at this point… In less than two weeks I have lost 6 pounds, and I have around 6 more pounds to go! It’s an amazing feeling! I didn’t think I could do it… I thought after my second child that my body was never going to let go of this extra weight, let alone actually look good again. But low and behold, when I look in the mirror now, I have a STOMACH instead of a blob.
I also thought it would be too much work to lose weight. I didn’t really want to give up the way I was eating… the ice cream, the popcorn, the pizza, the nachos… Oh God, how I miss nachos…. BUT!!!!!! I found that once I got started and I actually started losing weight, this diet didn’t seem so hard afterall.
I’m not craving carbs anymore. I am tempted by ice cream on hot days and it’s hard to watch other people in my family eat my favorite foods like pizza and popcorn. I also get tempted to snack like old times when I am sitting down on Monday nights watching tv… But then I remember my GOAL.
I have a tiny, sexy little bikini, courtesy of Guria Beachwear that I am dying to fit into! I have it on a hanger, in my bedroom, so I can look at it everyday and remember my goal. Talk about motivation… And I know I can do it. That is the most empowering thing in the world.
Plus, being able to look this good AND do this would be fantastic…
Yup, I’m totally going to practice till I can do that…

If I could get up and walk, I would totally do a happy dance right now… But of course I am still stuck on the couch with my leg elevated and iced because of the horrendous case of Cellulitis I have. I am still as determined as ever. I’ve been lifting weights while watching tv. No joke.

Please leave a comment and let me know if you are also are trying to lose weight, as I would love to offer some encouragement!
Head to your local Barnes & Nobel or get online and go to Amazon.com and get a copy of The Dukan Diet: 2 Steps to Lose the Weight, 2 Steps to Keep It Off Forever and The Dukan Diet Cookbook: The Essential Companion to the Dukan Diet.
Almost two weeks into this diet, I’ve lost over 6 pounds, so yeah I would definitely recommend it. It’s easy, straight forward, and if you get the personalized coaching with it, you won’t regret it. You’ve got nothing to lose but unwanted pounds and think about how much better you will feel about yourself when you get to go shopping for SMALLER clothes, instead of going up one more size… Believe me, getting healthy isn’t vanity. Our bodies weren’t meant to carry a ton of extra fat and weight around. Get fit, get healthy, get happy.
Please feel free to ask me questions about the diet, my weight loss, etc! I’d love to hear from you if you are taking the time out of your day to read about my diet. You can also bookmark Dukan Diet to stay updated on my weight loss journey as well! :-)
Disclaimer: I received the Dukan Diet book, the Dukan Cookbook, Dukan Organic Oat Bran, Dukan Stevia and Dukan Cocoa Powder to review on The Fashionable Housewife. I have NOT received compensation for posting about the diet! Posting about my weight loss is entirely my choice. I am not being paid to review the Dukan Diet or to lose weight. (Unfortunately!) This is raw footage into my personal weight loss experience, I just received the books and a couple Dukan products to “review” which is helping me on my own personal journey.
