I was very overweight, barely exercised and was a nurse, it was hard for me to tell my cardiac patients to lose weight, when I myself was not following my own advice. One of my friends I used to work with had great success with following the Dukan Diet, so one day on a tuesday, I woke up, bought a scale, went grocery shopping and started on my track to success.
It was hard through the holidays, but I have stuck to it, with the support of my friends and family, as well as my co workers. I am back to running, being an athlete all my life it definitely bothered me when I was out of shape, and getting back into it feels great!I have lost almost 50 pounds so far and have about 25 more to go!
My favorite support Dukan food: Cottage Cheese
My Dukan treat: Chocolate Muffins
My favorite form of exercise: Running/Pilates
The nicest compliment I’ve been paid: You look Skinny!
What keeps me going: My friends, family and co-workers
The advice I’d give to other « Dukanians »: Don’t give up, it is hard, and frustrating, but so worth it!
