I am 57 years old and have had a weight problem my ENTIRE life. All through school I was teased and bullied because of my weight. Food was my comfort. At 18, I weighed 154 pounds and am less than 5 feet tall. When my son was born, I weighed a whopping 181 pounds. I’d gained almost 75 pounds during my pregnancy. At one point, the only pants I could wear were my late husband’s (MANS) size 38 pants.
I’ve gone from at one point in life wearing size 18 jeans & now…..I’m in a SIZE 2 juniors !! I LOVE MY NEW BODY AND I INTEND TO KEEP IT, THANKS TO DR. PIERRE DUKAN I CAN !!!My wardrobe includes belts! I’ve never worn a belt in my life before now. I started the Dukan Diet on May 1, 2001….in LESS THAN 3 MONTHS I acquired my personal goal weight of 109.8 pounds.
I don’t kill myself at a gym I can’t afford. As Dr. Dukan says, « walk with a purpose for at least 20 minutes a day ». Now my weight continues to be between 109-111 pounds. My goal is to be with Dukan for the rest of my life, because good health is a lifetime commitment. I have tried almost EVERYTHING…..Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Atkins Diet, Gloria Stevens Fitness Studio, personal gyms, power walking, starvation, you name it. I was a certified aerobics teacher and assistant manager for over 6 years and NEVER looked or felt so good.
I feel as if I am the American Ambassador for the Dr. Pierre Dukan Diet. I tell EVERYONE I meet how I did it and how easy it is. My doctor even says I look fantastic and bought a copy of your book !! I tell people it’s NOT A FAD and IT WORKS !! I LOVE YOU DR. DUKAN. YOU ARE MY HERO. THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MY LIFE IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION 😉
My favorite support Dukan food: eggs, lean red meat, grilled veggies
My Dukan treat: glass of wine
My favorite form of exercise: walking my dog
The nicest compliment I’ve been paid: My doctor says that I look AMAZING
What keeps me going: size 2 jeans !!!
The advice I’d give to other « Dukanians »: how great I feel…no worrying about points, time of day that you can or can’t eat, no killing yourself at the gym
