Admittedly, I have still got another 2 stone 2 lbs to lose but I should reach my target by November if I stick to the Dukan Diet rules I've been following so far.
In terms of my exercises I'm still doing them all every day and increasing by one each day for the sit ups and pelvic thrusts. I'm up to 89 pelvic thrusts and 79 sit ups/pull ups. Still just doing 30 arm exercises and working my way up to 30 squats - currently on 27. When I manage 30 squats and 100 pelvic thrusts/100 sit ups/100 pull ups twice I day I plan to increase the arm exercises.

When I stood on the scales this morning I'd lost more weight bringing my total loss to 8lbs in six days (lost another 2lbs today). Yesterday I lost a little bit but not a full pound. Today I walked to ASDA to get some shopping and I've had the usual of yoghurt with oatbran for breakfast followed by turkey slices for dinner and a few pieces of chicken for tea so we'll see what tomorrow brings.
Trying to teach the baby to learn to sleep on her own so started the process today - hopefully she'll soon get used to it as I'm back at work in 2 weeks and can't spend all night awake with her (unfortunately!).

I tasted my custard today which smelled good but my nan had spilled water over it this morning so it tasted a bit naff - never mind I'll try again another day.
Meals today were yoghurt with oat bran, chicken with some vinigarette I made yesterday and a couple of ham slices and a tin of salmon for tea.
Still feeling very motivated but may be going out for a meal tomorrow so will have to keep all my willpower to stick to the plan. Wish me luck.

Dr Pierre Dukan works out on his website what a good weight for you is through the answers you provide from a few questions. After completing this I was told I should weigh about 9stone 1lb so that's what I'm going to try to aim for in this journey. To work out what he recommends for you and see the principles the diet works on go to http://www.dukandiet.co.uk/
I started today on this diet and am feeling quite enthusiastic (as at the beginning of any diet I suppose). You can eat as much as you want though today I've eaten some salmon, lean ham, a fat free vanilla yoghurt with oatbran and an omlette as well as drinking a litre and a half of water and walking briskly for 20 minutes. My weight today was 13stones 10lbs so we shall see what I weigh tomorrow and I will try to update my blog as often as I can and look forward to receiving any comments/support/encouragement from anyone following my journey!!
