I'm sorry to hear about your money problems Ruth..my hubby has been out of work for months but at least we're doing okay on unemployment if not wonderfully.

Maybe that is my problem, I do like variety and it seems like Dukan is a lot of the same thing with different spices..

Nope, I really didn't find it boring at all. But then again, I'm the type of person that only really cooks 4 or 5 different meals over the course of a week, with just slight changes to them. and with a few minor tweaks the diet pretty much fit with what I was already doing. The problem right now though is that we literally cannot afford food. (We're out of milk until at least payday thursday.) We have a chest freezer and a pantry, and that's what we've been eating for the past month. It sucks, but it's what we're stuck with.

Jen- you are doing awesome!!! Hang in there - don't give up on this plan, it is the best. You will be so happy in your "old" little clothes - what a great feeling! Have a super week!

DR510-no little dresses for me this Christmas but..I have lost around 25 pounds since July so I am going to fit in some clothes I haven't worn in a few years so that's good.

Welcome back Marianne!! Looking forward to chatting with you. How's everything been?

Terry-I know it's hard to check in without regular use of a computer-looks like you are doing really well so far though-47 pounds? Is that all since August?

Ruth-Sorry to hear you're sick. I know it's hard to eat Dukan friendly..the BRAT diet seems to be what docs want people to eat. We're also in a money crunch-hubby lost his job last December so we're basically doing chicken/ground beef type meals. It's probably why lately I am losing my steam diet wise. I am BORED :-(

Which leads me to my next question..did or do you all find the diet boring? Sometimes I just don't eat cause I am not motivated by what I CAN have or what I can have takes too long to make, especially in the morning when I'm not really "awake".

Any of you have some tips?What was or is your impression of the plan?How did you all do the time you were on it?

I am only 1/3 of the way to where I need to be but with holidays coming up,I know I won't do as well as I have been up until now.I know I just need to stick to what I've been doing and I'll get there but it's hard..

yeah, I haven't really been on much lately, sadly I've had to basically stop the diet. between getting sick and having trouble affording the diet foods, I'm not going to be doing the dukan for a while. At least until things get a little better here at home. I'm really bummed about it though, I love the diet, but I'll just have to wait until I'm in a better position to try it again.

Diet is kind of easy because I am so busy I don't really have time to eat. However, to answer your question. I could be doing a lot better, like last summer.

I am trying to be really focused on the Dukan until Christmas - as we are doing a party with "little" dresses, etc. lol!

How about you?

Hi There!! Goodness..new job and school. No wonder!

I miss summer too. Illinois is now firmly into fall with windy, rainy cold days. We even had a bit of snow last week.

Hanging in there..how is your diet going with a busier schedule. It'd be hard for me to be on the go and eat the Dukan way..

That's probably me - started school end of August and am in a new job - just barely time to breathe these days, let alone spark. I miss it tho. Steady goes it with me, wish it were summer. How about you?

I would guess holidays, school back in session, shorter days, -- all make people busier this tije of year. I'm finding it hard to resist the "carb-comfort" foods, and see a need to watch my diet closer. Sounds like you are doing great!! Keep up the good work!

There's not that many people around who started when I did..I wonder if they are just busy and haven't posted?

I wanted to compare my progress with people who have been on the plan about the same time..I started July 25th so that's..about 3.5 months..
