  • tub of muller light
  • 2  weight watchers pork sausages
  • chicken breast skewers
  • almost ate the new kitten, cause he was so cute, curled up on my shoulder while I ate my dinner…


  • 20 minutes cycling, to and from work
  • didn’t get my 30 minute walk, was too busy playing with the new kitten!!

Dead chuffed about the results on the scales this morning – let it not be said that a mini attack has no effect.  I haven’t been this weight in years, and I’m now officially over a stone down since I started, 30 days ago.  Hurrah!

However, I didn’t get all the exercise in that I’d meant to, as I was too busy bonding with our kitten – who shall henceforth be known as Link (from the Zelda games):

How cute is he? I know, he’s not exactly diet related, but I simply HAD to share.  He’s a social wee thing, can’t bear to be left alone and cries piteously when he can’t see either J or myself.  It breaks my heart to leave him at home by himself while we’re at work…

Tomorrow, however, I AM going to get my 30 minutes walk in, and I’ve got a cycle of about 45 minutes tonight to get home via a circuitous detour, need to run some errands.

  1. Very nice accomplishment, 1 stone! Yay for you!


  2. he is gorgeous



  3. Your kitten is adorable. It must have felt amazing to have lost a stone – I look forward to that day 🙂 But I’m confused, I didn’t think cheese or pork were allowed on the diet, except for cottage cheese and ham, I have been wondering about some low fat options like these but don’t knoe if I’m brave enough to try.


    • Hehe… He is pretty cute. All grown up now, positively adolescent.

      Cheese is allowed as a tolerated food, so long as it’s less than 7% fat. Strictly speaking, babybel lights are higher in their fat content, but the serving size kinda balances things out so that one mini babybel light doesn’t do much harm as an extra bit of “oomph” to a meal.

      Everyone’s different, but in very very tight moderation, I’ve found that a tiny bit of parmesan is great for adding a cheesy tang to a meal, without much cheese.

      As for the pork – Dukan’s book is a little out of date compared to the information he doles out online. From what I can gather, the conventional wisdom is that, so long as the meat (or mince) is less than 10% fat, then it’s a goer. I’ve had lots of good losses using extra lean tesco mince, though it can be a little dry – I add a teaspoon of cornflour and some water to the mix (along with lots of spices!) to make it a bit gooier. Cornflour is counted as a tolerated food too, so watch the amount you have of that.

      Last piece of advice – exercise is, as he puts in his book, not just recommended – it’s prescribed. Its been difficult for me to get my daily walk in each day recently, what with the dark and cold winter nights, but a gym membership is helping that along. I always had my fastest losses when I was getting a good 30-60min walk per day. Walking’s AWESOME! 🙂
