VID of the week
I can’t remember the last time I was this happy!
When I was a little girl, I wasn’t overweight. However, when I reached my teens I started to gradually gain weight. I didn’t really notice it at first, as it was creeping on. However, when I was sixteen, I started working in my local McDonalds, which was obviously a bad idea...
My Dukan story...
As time went by, the weight started to creep on, and my clothes started to get tight. I kept an eye on the scales, and even though the weight was going up (as was my clothes size!) I wasn’t too bothered. I tried a few different diets, with the help of my family, but to no avail. My weight stopped at a steady 15stone 7lbs, which was very overweight for my small height of 5 feet 4 inches.
I met my current partner just before I went to university, and even though I said “oh I’m so fat!” he still thought I was beautiful. However, when we moved to Aberdeen and went to University, the weight began to creep on for both of us.

The advice I'd give to others "Dukanians":
During the summer of 2010 we had an extension put on the house we were living in, and my partner and I stayed at his parent's house temporarily. It was during this time that I decided to give up gluten and dairy as the rest of his family didn’t eat it, and in those three months my weight dropped to 15stone 10lbs. I still wasn’t happy with the way I looked and felt, and I knew I had to do something about it.
Around September of 2010, my partner’s mum told me about someone at work who had started the Dukan diet.
I reached my true weight of 11 stone on the 1st of July this year.
I am now two weeks into consolidation and things are still going well. Another 2lbs have come off, but I am hoping it will level out now. I am now a size 12/14, and I can’t remember the last time I was this happy!
Also, for those of you wondering how my partner has done on the diet, he has lost 2 stone 2lbs, and we are both very proud of each other!
