Major milestone - weight = 11st 11lb. The first time in 12 years that I've been 11st something. And, look at my BMI it couldn't be any closer to a healthy BMI. And, double figures weight lose in kg. Another 2lbs to go to get to the 2st mark.
Initially when my weight stayed the same I was disheartened but then I realised that I had already lost a stone and a half and I was maintaining that loss, something I wouldn't have done on any other diet.
I believe my body was hitting the reset button. So to get things moving again I did the Dukan Attack as per TML's thread. That means in the last week on Fri, Sat, Sun I ate pure protein, fasted Mon, ate normally Tues, Wed and fasted yesterday. The Dukan attack wasn't difficult as I was so determined but wasn't the nicest way to eat (especially as I'm a carb girl) and it's not something I would continue with as I believe in balanced meals for health but it certainly did the job. In the future if I get stuck I would try 4:3 or 16:8 with 5:2 but if I ended up in such a long plateau I would do the Dukan Attack again.
So to anyone who isn't losing weight, and I think my 7 week plateau is one of the longest, don't give up, shake it up. After all what's the alternative? Give up and put back on all the weight? No way .
