Oct 18th I started the Dukan Diet and I am loving it! I have lost 21 lbs in 33 days and really feeling a huge difference in my clothes. My True Weight on the program is 168 lbs and I should reach that goal mid July. Then I go into the next phase which is Consolidation for 385 days which allows the body to really assimilate the weight loss. I have not been hungry at all on this plan, cravings went away immediately and several health conditions have left my body in just 30 days. I know I will be successful at this lifetime eating and I will be fit and fabulous at 52!

My Goals:
Long term Goal:
~ Lose 85 lbs, become fit and prevent weight related diseases. ~Keep the weight off for lifetime. Watching The Alzheimers Project really jolted me into starting back up! Dementia IS linked to nutrition and lack of exercise.

Short term Goal:
~Celebrate at every 5% weight loss so I have many successes.

Fitness Goal:
~26 mile bike- Did it Jan14th! woo hoo!

My Program:
Prior to Dukan Diet I would measure and weigh all portions, count calories and fat but now we dont have to do that. NO calorie counting, no measuring. I eat as much as I want of lean proteins, fat free dairy and low carb veggies. I love eating like this! And the weight is coming off and my body is transforming!

    You might want to check out the C25K group (Couch to 5K) here on SparkPeople. There is also a running plan for this located on (I think) but you can find the link in the group area. The C25K lays out a day to day 5 week plan to get you up and going. I used to for this first part. Being a fan of the Biggest Loser and seeing the contestants complete marathons over the last 2 season, I figured why can't I do that. So I convinced a buddy to start training with me and we plan to do a half marathon in November and then the Walt Disney World Marathon next January. Best of luck and thanks for chiming in on my first blog.

    Thanks for the compliments Linda and stopping by my page. Now, while we're passing them out...THERE IS NO WAY YOU ARE GOING TO BE 50! I would've seriously guessed in the mid thirties. you sound like you're ready to make this happen. Don't let anything or anyone stop you. Go for it girl!
