Day Six – Attack

Morning weigh in: 96.6kg

Daily LOSS 0.2kg / 0.44lbs
Total loss 2.3kg / 5.06lbs

Watercheck 2.6l including tea, coffee and sugarfree cordial.


  • 2 x microwaved eggs
  • Oatbran porridge
Morning snack
  • Fat free peach Activia with artificial sweeteners


  • 6 small gluten free cumberland sausages (a bit high in fat – but xenical will help mitigate that…)
  • Chicken breast with Nandos seasoning
  • 1 small moist peach muffin (same recipe as the moist vanilla muffin, but with peach activia – really tasty!) I know, that’s my oatbran allowance blown for the day, but I had to test one! 😉


  • 25 min cycle to and from work
  • 20 mins brisk walking running errands.

Brilliant – down another .2kgs despite the chocolate biscuits yesterday.

I had a bit of a run-in with the cookie box again today.  I put a biscuit in my mouth, chewed it all up, but then before I swallowed, I realised that I was only damaging my own goals.  So I spat it out into the bin – yay! 🙂  I told J that story this evening, and he raised an eyebrow and a crooked smile, and quipped cautioningly that it was a “slippery slope”.  I think he was talking about bulimia.  Fear not, dear friends, for I have no gag reflex.  There have been times when I’ve drunk too much or eaten something that didn’t agree with me, where I’ve tried to throw it up, but to no avail.  So even if I did want to stick my fingers down my throat (gross!) it wouldn’t work for me anyway.

In other news, I got hold of a new set of outdoor wheels for my skates today! One of my lovely fellow Derby girls lives on my street, and was selling a second hand set cheap – hurray! 🙂  Time to start getting the skates on a bit more before minimum standards trials next month!

  1. Wow — good for you about the cookie (spitting it out rather than swallowing it)…That definitely takes self-control… 🙂

    Can you get those in your office to stop buying cookies and other snacks? it would improve everyone’s health, and make life easier for you …

    I work mainly from my home office, and have just stopped buying chips, cookies and other high-calorie snacks. I go to the fridge or pantry, and all I have to eat when I get the ‘munchies’ are crab sticks and turkey jerky! I also attach cucumber pickles occasionally, which are apparently allowed (in small quantities) by Dukan.


    • Marie, how is that in any way fair on my co-workers? Just because I should be eating those things, why should I force my colleagues to stop?!

      Sure, it’s easy to make the rules when you work at home. Try that one on co-workers and you’ll quickly become the Most Hated Person In the Office…
