I kinda felt I did pretty crap this week. Basically because I over-salted everything, which means I'm retaining even more water than usual plus I didn't drink enough water (and tea) to flush the excess salt out of my system.
Plus I had to deal with a whole load of crap-o-la this last week. Major stress. I probably came closest to cheating than at any other point. So, I 'cheated' with too much salt, I suppose, but kept strictly to the regime.
On the other hand, I'm now completely over single cream in my coffee. I always drank black coffee in the States, when I worked at a place that did freshly roasted, freshly ground Green Mountain coffee. Any milk would have hid the subtle nuances of the different coffees and blends, so, it was always black. Then I moved to the UK and was only ever offered a pale cup of instant (bleeeck, instant!) So I began drinking coffee with single cream to
So, with the water retention and the salt, I was really dreading stepping on the scales this morning, however, I was pleasantly surprised with a bit of progress.
I'm down to 90kg / 14 stone 2 pounds / 198 lbs. Yeah! I'm under 200 pounds!
So, to date I've lost 8 kg / 1 stone 3.6 pounds / 17.6 lbs
I celebrated at lunch with a huge salad served with the Dukan Balsamic vinaigrette I make. Delicious!
Everyone I know has noticed a difference. Which is very encouraging to me. Plus I just feel, I don't know, lighter? Smaller? I still have the pain in my Achilles tendon, but hopefully that will be seen to soon. My doctor wants me to receive 'shock' treatments to the tendon using sound waves. I have to travel to Saint Brieuc to do this and if CPAM get their act together, it could happen in a matter of weeks.
My doctor is very happy with my progress. And so am I.
I will be getting another blood test done at the end of the month and we'll see how my blood sugar and my cholesterol are faring with the weight drop.
Tonight is my homemade ratatouille and chicken. Yummmm....
Have a great weekend and a great week!
