It's Just Another Day...

My progress seems to have slowed so tremendously, yet my body keeps changing quite remarkably.  I have been told that in the later stages of weight loss, every additional pound lost is more noticeable overall as the ratio to your total body mass is greater.  I suppose that could be the case.  I've lost 97.5 lbs now.  The reason that my 100 lbs lost milestone is such a big deal to me is because it will mean I have finally broke the 200 lb barrier.  Somehow that is a major accomplishment to me as I was once over 300 lbs.

Do you all plan on striving just for your Dukan target weight or going a bit further?  The two times I put my data into the Dukan True Weight calculator, it gave me two different true weights.  The first time it said 185, and the second time it said 182.  I was thinking 175 would be about perfect, but it's rather tempting to think I get to call it quits at 182 or 185 instead.

I certainly hope I won't jinx myself in saying this, but I'm not terribly worried about keeping the weight off once I reach my goal.  From experimentation thus far, I've more or less proven to myself that as long as I keep an eye on things I can eat just about whatever I want and maintain my weight.  It's the losing more weight thing that keeps me on my toes.  I'm just a bit worried that I'll end up getting too comfortable at that point.

So as silly as it seems, if you all are anything like me there is nothing better than receiving compliments from people to reward all the hard work.  Which compliments have pleased you most to date?

  1. I am just starting to look into the Dukan diet and am loving reading your posts. Thanks!

  2. Glad you're enjoying them Sunny. Ask me anything, anytime!

  3. Brianna- I love that you have a blog about the Dukan diet. I am going to start tomorrow for the first time on it. Since you had quite a lot to lose, and I have a lot to lose too, about 100 lbs. How long did you do the attack phase for?
    Thank you!
