I have lost 0.5 kg since last week, 15.0 kg in total. BMI 26.9 kg/m2

I have survived eleven weeks on The Dukan Diet.

My scales state that I am now 80.5 kg.  I wonder if I am levelling out now that I am nearly at target.

Maybe it is a pattern of two weeks of around 1.5 kg followed by a week of .5 kg.

I was talking to a French chap at lunchtime today, and he told me that “everyone knows” a rough guide to target or ideal weight is simply to remove the metres from your height, so if you are 175 cm tall, you ought to be 75 kg — and if you are 155 cm you should weight 55 kg.  I’ve never heard that before, but it is intriguing — and scarily accurate (the rest of the office put it to the test).

Anyway, see ya next Thursday!
