Dukan Diet: Week 6

I just completed Week Six of my eating plan, and I’ve dropped another pound! That puts me at an even eight pounds down in the six weeks I’ve been following Dukan eating. These results are staggering to me, especially considering that I haven’t been following the diet exactly and have had my share of falls off the wagon.
Last Saturday was Valentine’s Day, and I was not about to worry myself with what I was eating over this special weekend. Bill treated me to a romantic dinner at Anthony’s in Edmonds, and also took me for a fantastic lunch yesterday at Ivar’s in Mukilteo. Both meals were delicious, and I focused completely on the amazing man that I was with and celebrating our wonderful relationship together and didn’t worry even slightly about the fact that my food choices were not Dukan-approved.
And that’s the thing I’m reminded of week after week of doing this: I am making lifestyle choices. I am choosing to eat better most of the time, and leaving splurges to a treat meal or so a week instead of just eating anything in sight. And as a result I am feeling so much better, both physically and emotionally, and when I do choose to have an off-plan meal I don’t feel guilty because I’m no longer doing it all the time. I feel like I’m back in control of what I’m eating and that feels great!
I’ve decided that going forward I’m going to change how I judge my weekly results. So far I’ve just been comparing my weight from one Monday to the next, but weight fluctuates and that method may not give me the most accurate picture of how I’m doing. So instead, beginning next week I’ll be comparing my average week loss for the week to that of the week before. I’m interested to see how this new method plays out!
