Day One – Attack

Morning weigh in: 98.9kg <<<—- MY NEW STARTING WEIGHT

Watercheck 3.0l including low calorie cordial and  cup of tea.


  • 2 microwaved eggs
  • Oatbran and flaxseed bread with zero fat quark and vegemite


  • 1/2 a tesco roast chicken, no skin

Afternoon snack

  • Microwaved egg


  • The other half of the tesco roast chicken – again, no skin
  • 2 beef burgers


  • 25 mins cycling to and from work
  • 10 mins cycling to and from Tesco
  • 2 hours gentle roller skating with plenty of breaks and stretching- but still quite physical!

For a first day, not too bad.  I didn’t have time to make my usual attack oatbran porridge, so I snaffled some of the (dukan friendly) bread that I make for J for breakfast.

I was faced with having to put out chocolate biscuits for a meeting today, and then there were leftover brownies after their lunch, but I was absolutely not tempted by any of them.  I think this reboot is good for me – I can focus on where things are going, rather than trying to remember what day I’m on.

I was initially a bit shocked at the morning weigh-in – more than 10kgs more than I was at my lowest weight on this diet, but I’m choosing to ignore that fact, and totally focus my energies on the road ahead.  Tomorrow’s going to be a test of will – my roller derby league has a big important bout on, and I’m volunteering to help out manning stalls and stuff.  As luck would have it, they’ve put me on the BAKE SALE stall! I’m going to be selling cakes and brownies and other sugary carb laden goods.


But I shall prevail.  Just thinking about being able to be fit enough to skate around that track and compete in a roller derby game (omg it’s a hard sport!) will be enough to keep my snout out of those cakes.  I seriously worship the women who play this sport competitively.

    Go Charlotte go! I know you hate to hear this, but you absolutely were our inspiration as Cary and I reached our goal weights PLUS a couple lbs. lower. We’re not really doing the last 2 phases — we’re basically eating only protein & veggies at home (and still eating home a LOT!), and letting go somewhat when we do eat out, or are at someone’s for dinner or at an event. We’re still walking pretty regularly, and we marvel at how having to walk extra distances (like remote parking at an event or something) is just … exercise! … now.

    Hope the big bout was a blast, and that you managed the Bake Sale table okay 🙂

    Love & miss you,


  2. Awww, hi Jeanne,

    I’m just SO proud of you and Cary. Well done for continuing with the exercise – I’ve always maintained that it’s key for me. I got lazy over winter, and that laziness became a habit that I’m hoping to break, what with Derby and walking.

    I know what you mean about walking extra distances – it’s all something to add to the log. 🙂

    Charlotte xx

    PS – the bout was AMAZING!! Our girls got absolutely annihilated by the London team, but there was a lot of learning, and the London team was just outta this world incredible. And lovely too! 🙂
