VID of the week
I was determined to carry on!
Since I was a teenager, my weight has fluctuated quite dramatically but the weight really piled on after the birth of my first child and sudden death of my father, just over 10 years ago. At that point, I was very unwell and was diagnosed with depression/anxiety and went onto medication, which I remained on for years. At that time, I was very unhappy with the way I looked (I was almost 15 stone) but couldn't really find the drive to do anything about it...
My Dukan story...
I had a few half hearted attempts at dieting but I didn't really stick at anything for longer than a couple of days.

The advice I'd give to others "Dukanians":
I finally came off my medication a year or so ago and was feeling much better but my weight was still an on going issue, at just under 14 stone.
The real lightbulb moment came when one of my oldest and dearest friends asked me to be her bridesmaid.
I read about the dukan diet in a newspaper and it immediately made sense to me, I bought the book and started it in July 2010, with the thought that if it made me feel unwell, then I would stop.
I didn't quite reach my true weight of 10 stone 7lbs for the wedding on the 30th November 2010 but I did reach 10 stone 11lbs, having lost 3 stone 1lb.
Since then, I have lost another 1 stone 1lb and have settled at a weight of 9 stone 10lbs, making a total loss of 4 stone 2lbs, which I have managed to matain since January 2011.
