The Dukan Diet - Day Four
The Dukan Diet - Day Four - Phase One - Attack
I woke up this morning eager to see how much weight I lost because I really felt that yesterday was a day of weight shedding. To my disappointment, I had not lost any weight :( Maybe it skips a day?
I was really depressed because my kids left to go to their dad's and I did not have plans. Usually, I would plan my day around eating out and enjoying myself. However, since I felt like I could not eat anything, I figured I would just go back to bed and sleep the day away. A few hours later, I realized this was a waste of a perfectly good day off of work.
I got up and opened the refrigerator. Seeing all that food from yesterday's shopping trip was irritating me. By now, I usually would have sampled at least one of everything in the fridge. Instead, I decided to consolidate some of the food into smaller containers and I began cooking sauces, dressings and other yummy looking recipes from my Duakan Diet book. This made me happy as I discovered some tasty stuff that would help me get through my diet. I am excited to try them with different meals and they were really easy to make.
The rest of the day pretty much went down hill :( I was hungry all day. While I lounged around I ate a lot of food. I believe my two worst decisions was eating Sherbert and having more lemon juice with salt. I felt that because the Sherbert was fat free that it would be okay, but the problem was the sugar that was in it. Also, I guess because I knew I could not have salt, I wanted it even more.
So, today, being the fifth day of the diet will be my last for now. I actually gained a few pounds back and throughout all of this, I have only lost one pound. The first three days I was gun-hoe but found by day four, it was tough, especially being home for the weekend.
Do I feel like a failure? Yeah, kind of! But, I did good for 3 days at least and I saw where I made my mistakes, and they are easy to fix. Perhaps next time I try this, I will start on a Monday and I will also make sure to plan it around my female cycle. Until next time.....
