    Finally found something that works for me!

    I've not been on for ages but decided I've got something good to share at last that will hopefully inspire/motivate someone else. I've been on and off here (in Slimming World) since 2012. I had did Slimming World (red and green days) years before and it worked but after my second child I piled the weight on. In 2012 I was determined (or so I thought) to lose all that weight and decided to do SW again, only this time I couldn't stick to it, I found it so complicated, I gave up. This happened on and off up until July this year, a friend of mine told me about the Dukan....it sounded awful, I love bread, I love pasta, I didn't think I could do it. However, I felt huge, squeezing out my clothes, I felt fat, I was embarrassed and decided I'd give it a go. In about two months, and with no difficulty at all surprisingly, I had lost 17 lbs, I felt amazing! I've kept if off and I don't think I'll ever go back, all the old clothes we're put into a charity bag tonight ....thank you Dukan! Now I'm going to join a gym and hopefully tone up a little.

    anyway like I say, thought I'd share. Good luck to anyone that tries The Dukan, I doubt it's for everyone but it's perfect for me. I heard recently that no matter what diet you do it will work.....as long as you don't kid yourself on and actually do the diet; but there's no point in doing one that makes you feel deprived and miserable. Now I've lost weight I have my celebration takeaway at the weekend...and believe me I make it count lol and I have my cappuccino once a day (with way too much sugar) and the weights staying off. I've just changed my eating habits for the better.

    Lovely of you to post Macbie and congratulations on your weight loss. Are you now in phase 4 "Stabilisation" then? We'd be most interested if you were to open a diary and post menus daily for us and join in the general chat. So many of us are fine on phases 1 and 2 but things come apart in phase 3. You'd be most welcome!!

    Well done again!
