Graduate school had taken it’s toll on me. Working as a teacher by day, going to school at night, and raising a family everyday, I had no time to take care of myself. I was tired, my joints ached and I had migraines constantly. I was ready to lose the weight. I was wearing a snug size 12 and ready to go up a pant size. I had a friend who told me about Dr. Dukan and the diet. She said a friend of hers had followed the diet and looked amazing. I was intrigued and looked into it. It made perfect sense and I knew it would take determination and a « can do » attitude. I quickly discovered that it was not a diet, but a lifestyle! I have lost 41 pounds with just 10 more pounds to go! I am now wearing a comfortable size 4 and LOVING it. I don’t ache and hurt all over, I have energy, and I don’t have the horrible migraines anymore. At 46, losing weight is not easy, but following the Dukan Diet helped!
My favorite support Dukan food: Chicken with Mustard or baked Fish. All veggies.
My Dukan treat: Oat bran cookies and the Creme’s.
My favorite form of exercise: Walking
The nicest compliment I’ve been paid: Hey « Skinny Mini »!
What keeps me going: Being able to wear cute clothes, my family and just the feeling of being healthy!
The advice I’d give to other « Dukanians »: Stick with it. It might seem hard at first but soon you will adjust and embrace it!
