Decisions, decisions....

So it's been 6 weeks since my last post. Oops. Life gets busy. I've been on a 4 week break from grad school, so that means I've had just my full time job, husband, and the rest of my life to worry about. Even though that's a lot, I am constantly amazed at how much free time I have when I'm not reading or writing papers. I've been doing a lot of DIY projects around the house and stalking Pinterest - living' the dream. 

Anyway, I have been putting off writing a post because I was trying to decide what to do/what to write about. Last I left it - I was still Dukan-ifying Weight Watchers. Well Week 2 was successful, as was Week 3 and by the time a full month came around - I was down 7 pounds and eating more and more carbs and less protein. Decidedly not-Dukan. But I was losing! It took some time for me to grasp the concept that carbs aren't the worst thing ever for weight loss because I was losing while eating them. Mind you - this was after I had gained weight while I was still 100% Dukan. 

I am still above my TW of 154. I have been bouncing between 160.5 and 162 for a couple weeks -but I feel great about it. I am not obsessing. I am working out, and feeling really healthy and strong. I am not obsessing about carbs, or veggies, or fruit. I am just eating what I want when I want it - and counting my WW points. It's working, and while I would love to say I'm in the 50's again....if I don't get back to it (shrugs) oh well. I feel great and have spent so much less mental energy on my weight as of late - it's been positively delightful.

So I am unsure as to what I want to do with this blog. I don't know how much more I have to say on this topic since I am pretty much off Dukan, and it feels weird writing a blog about something that I am no longer doing, and therefore not creating recipes for either. But I do love the idea of people who are in the thick of Dukan and using those recipes and reading about my trials and triumphs.  

Perhaps I'll continue to post occasionally. Maybe not. Time will tell.


  1. Thanks for coming back and posting so that we are aware of your thoughts of what you will do with your blog in the future or present. Best wishes!

  2. Thank you for all the effort you have put into this blog. I just found you today, and I am on day 5 of Dukan Diet and looking for inspiration to get through the next few weeks on the diet!!!

  3. Yay! I am glad you found it! Despite this post, I am still a big believer in protein. I am not a carb-hater, but I am a protein lover. What can I say - protein leads to weight loss! You've inspired me to post again soon ;-)

  4. this blog is amazing! I'm on my 3rd day still and chocolate is all I can think about... love your blog for inspiration and strength! thanks :)
