Hi From another Newbie

Post  Lizzy63 on Tue May 11, 2010 9:28 pm

Hi all

I'm new to this forum, glad to find others doing the Dukan and not getting blasted for it!

I "tried it out" after reading about it in the Daily Mail, and then couldn't resist when I saw the book
on sale for under £6.
So here I am!

Started on Sunday at 160 pounds, 11st 6lbs (I'm from the UK but used to other sites and using pounds)
5'2" so "should" weigh at most 9st 6lbs, 132 pounds.

I did manage to get down to 137 last July, but stopped smoking in August and regained 28 pounds, so would be happy to get back under 140, 10st.

Hi Lizzy Very Happy ,

Welcome to the site, it's good to have you here.

I have a bit of weight to lose- *whispers* 70lbs and so far I have lost 9, so only 61lbs to go. I did 10 days of the Attack and now I am on the Cruise phase (since last Thursday). I am doing the alternating protein then protein/veggie days (1/1). So far so good and I already feel better for it.

Stay in touch and let us know how you are getting on.

Till next time, stay focused and keep the faith! farao

You can do it!!
Sounds like you are off to a great start.

My heaviest weight was 215 pounds, so had lost almost 80 before stopping the cigs.

Thanks for your encouragement! I will stick with it no matter what as I am already seeing a difference not just in weight but in how I feel physically. I suffered from tummy digestive problems and wanting to fall asleep after eating and now no tummy problems and I actually stay awake! That is not only a good thing in general but it certainly helps when you have to attend masses of meetings and have to force yourself to stay awake in the middle of the day.

Wow you lost 80lbs-how impressive! I know you said you have gained some weight since quitting smoking, but you are obviously a determined person and know how to stick to a plan! Good on you cheers. Best of luck, bet you will do great Smile .

Till next time, stay focused and keep the faith farao .
