This morning as I was getting ready for work I decided to step on the scale and see how the whole "Dukan" thing is going.
Since I started this thing I am at a total weight loss of 31.5 lbs.
My BG's have been amazingly good. A couple of lows with some unexpected exercise but other than that I have been pretty darm good. I feel great! Especially when I break in a new notch in my belt.
Still I am not making the time to exercise which I need. It is sporadic at best and I am not sure how to remedy it. The dance class fell apart because one week I was sick, then my wife was busy, and after that we just felt like we should wait and take the class at another time.
Some people asked me if I miss eating all the carbs I used to. Honestly, I don't. I mean I would love to eat a stack of french fries when I have a lettuce wrapped turkey burger but I don't miss it. It's more of the habit of it. A side salad foots the bill quite nicely and then I know what I am eating is doing me more good than harm.
For so long I focused on my taste buds and now that I am trying to eat healthier I am finding my taste buds are changing! I crave veggies which is nuts! But I love it.
The other part of my ability to stay on track with this diet is that I know it will not be forever. When I reach my goal weight (lots more to go) than I will introduce some of that stuff again but I am not really that excited about it.
For me it is about being healthy, living long, and feeling my best. It took a long time for me to understand that I needed to take care of my diabetes and now I am understanding how I need to take care in what I eat for my body's sake.
I am a slow learner but I am finally figuring it out!
