I’ve lost 24 pounds and I never ever want to put them back on!
My name is Annick, I'm 60, but in my head I'm 30 and especially since I've lost weight....
My Dukan story...
As a child, I was a rather chubby little girl, but not obese. During adolescence, I slimmed down a bit. Then I gradually started to put the pounds back on, after being pregnant, when I stopped smoking and at the menopause.
I have always had a particular relationship with food. I loved sweet things and I used to gorge myself, yes it was that, bingeing on cakes, chocolate or other sweet stuff. I knew I had to stop but I just couldn't. Quite simply I was bulimic.
I've done loads of diets, just like all of you, I've tried them all, I've lost countless pounds but I've put just as many back on again and always with some extra besides.
Then two years ago a friend of mine who had lost a stone and a half lent me Pierre Dukan's book and I immediately rushed out to buy my own copy.
My favorite support Dukan food:

The advice I'd give to others "Dukanians":
In one month I quickly lost 13 pounds, but as I didn't do the consolidation I gradually went back to my old habits and 9 pounds went back on. I then became granny to 2 twin boys who are now 18 months old; I wanted to remain young and lovely for them and also for my family.
Last April at the start of the month, I went onto the DUKAN diet web site and subscribed to the online coaching, as I had really made my mind up this time that once and for all I was going to lose this weight that had been getting me down for years and most of all, I said to myself that at my age, if I was going on a diet, it would be the last one: I knew that one day I would lose weight and that I would become the woman that I really was inside my head.
So since I started my coaching I've lost almost 20 pounds.
Since shedding these 20 pounds, I feel lighter, more attractive and even younger and I know that I'll never put them back on again.
I still have about 9 pounds to lose and I will achieve this. I sometimes give way to temptation, I'm not hiding the fact, but I know that I am going to keep off all these pounds I've lost. I feel too good and I get so many compliments from family and friends and I also really love my new figure.
