Reboot take 2

Well despite my brain flooding my mind with excuses, I've officially rebooted and am back full time dukaning!! I seriously couldn't believe the amount of 'garbage' my brain was telling me this morning... and to think that all comes from inside me.

eg: just one more day of eating sugary wheaty food... one little thing won't hurt... what about your family dinner this week... etc etc... today I've been strong. I hope tomorrow and the next day, when the sugar low hits I can stay that way.

I hate it that I've gained back 3kg, which I lost earlier this year. I'm so pathetic. When am I going to get serious about my life and food and stop self sabotaging myself? My husband made a comment to me yesterday that makes me think I'm effecting him with all my ups and downs :-(

What do you guys do to control the ups and downs?


  1. Good to have you back on board - as you can see I am having a rough ride but I am sticking it out as I would hate to imagine the damage if I had gone completely off the rails - it would have been more than 3Kg for me I dare to think.

    I think most of us fall at times but the important thing is to see this as a lifestyle - a permanent change to our eating and when we do fall we get back up at the next meal and not leave it to the next day or next week.

    When things are not going well.... (like the last few days in my case) we have to think bigger picture. It will turn out to just be a blip in the grand scheme of things. Patience and perseverance - we will get there!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. I try to analyse why I fall so bad when I fall.... but it's a mystery. Perhaps I need to see a shrink!!

  2. Awh you are not pathetic dear, it happens, falling off the wagon happens to everyone. Even my diet partner recently cheated for the first time in the 9 months we have been on Dukan together. It happens. You just have to start at zero and push forward.

    When I am at a low with dieting I simply think about the food and realise that not a single bite is worth seeing myself as a failure for. That the diet doesn't take much time in the grand scheme of things and it'll soon be over, I'll be at the weight I want to be and then it's finished, I can eat as I want to without hating myself for cheating.

    Good luck!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. Hopefully each time I cheat I will learn something ;-)

  3. Staying away from sugary foods will probably help with the ups and downs, especially mentally as you wont feel bad about cheating! Good luck!
