Day 66 UPDATE & PROMOCODES; Dukeing it Out With Little Miss Mama

Happy Friday My Friends,
After a disastrous Thursday, the last thing I wanted to do was weigh myself this morning.  But I did anyway, with my eyes closed; I looked down at the scale, did a double take and then counted all the little lines to make sure I was correct.  Yup! Down 25lbs in 66 days!  Holy (insert bad words here)!  I have lost a whole two year old, I cannot believe it. 
The first thing I did was pick up the phone and alert Tairalyn right away! And then run downstairs and let my mom know!  These two women have been the biggest support in my journey emotionally, physically, and mentally and I would not be where I am without them.

Naturally, being cut from the same cloth, Tairalyn and I are both down the same amount.  Does this surprise us? Not in the least, as our friendship grows we are finding out just how scarily similar we are and loving every minute of it!  
Is this diet easy?  Yes and no, there are days you want to breakdown and have a Big Mac meal with supersized fries and a Mcflurrie but instead you go to the fridge and have some sugar free low fat pudding and although you might be cursing your new lifestyle a few hours later you are proud of yourself for not giving in.  Let’s be honest some more, I didn’t think I had it in me to change, I didn’t think I or we would stick with it, but once the weight started to slide off I just wanted to keep going as I knew I would be a happier, healthier version of me!  And I most definitely am.  Tairalyn is my rock and when I have a bad day or ‘cheat’ she is the one telling me its okay look how far we come.  I don’t condone cheating on a lifestyle change like this and let me tell you what my cheating has been, veggies on a non-veggie day, or a few extra table spoons of goji berries for some added sweetness to my day. HA, It used to be a whole box of cookies!
This Dukan Diet has opened up so many new and exciting avenues for both Tairalyn and I.  The most exciting is working with, that’s right my friends and fellow #youcandukan ers, you can now order Dukan friendly cookies, noodles, granola and much more and have it delivered to your house!  Yep, success has just gotten a little closer!  When the package arrived Tairalyn and I screamed and laughed in excitement, the things we love the most; cookies, are finally here and made for us!  Now we can sit down and watch our favourite shows Big Brother and Bachelor In Paradise with a cup of skim milk and cookies to dip them in.  The possibilities are endless on the snacks and treats we can now have.
