She is 12!

Ok, it isn't as shocking as it sounds.

I did buy her some size 10 tops (you know you are getting old when you call them 'tops' :D), as they were basically the same size as those for her age and they were only £1 each from a local charity shop (I am not proud, if they look new or have tags on them then £1 will do for me!).

Basically I was wearing size 12/14 before I started the diet on the 18th July, now I can get into size 10 but would feel better if I lost a couple more inches off my bust.

I only had about a stone to lose but going down a size or nearly two in that time is a surprise.

:D

So, to any other newbies out there, it can be done.

My husband can't believe how much I am eating, the fridge door is never closed!

It is often quiet harder to lose weight if you don't have a lot to lose.

I was a 12/14 which sounds an ideal size to lots of people but I am only 5' tall and small framed (according to Dukan) so that size was too big for me.

I didn't want to be a size 10 or any daft size, just wanted to feel more comfortable in my clothes and not have to look for size 14 instead of 12.

You're on conso now aren't you Don'tWantToBe? Are you finding you're still losing weight?


Congrats on your success :)

Not really, I have stayed the same but I haven't been out walking for the past few days and I have introduced mature cheddar and wholemeal bread into my diet as per the book.

Dr Dukan says you can have any hard cheese etc so I have had just over 1oz of cheese over the past two days. Yesterday I had a cheese, onion and mushroom dukan omelette for lunch and today I made a cheese and red onion toastie on the GF using wholemeal bread. It was lovely!

Hopefully I will lose a couple of ounces today as I went for an half hour walk with the dog and drank lots more water than yesterday.

We have had visitors staying so I never drink as much water if we are going out shopping etc for the day.

;)

It's a great feeling isn't it! My daughter is 14 and a size 8-10 and I can fit in lots of her clothes now, especially her dresses as they are a little more forgiving. We are off on holiday in 7 weeks and instead of buying 2 sets of holiday clothes I have bought things that we can both wear, hopefully we won't end up squabbling over who wears what:D

Well to be honest they are a bit big for her as she is very slim and flat chested still so there was still a bit of growing room in there. :D

It's not something I was expecting to happen, not in such a short space of time anyway.

:D

Amazing ladies - well done!! My daughter's 14 months old - so I think that her clothes fitting me may be a stretch, even for Dukan!!! :p

Went a step further today and took a gamble. Thought I would risk £1 on a pair of George size 10 trousers (one of the charity shops was having an everything for £1 day).

OMG! They fit! :eek:

I think the last time I was in a pair of size 10 trousers was when I was a teenager, that was 40 years ago!

I think that could be a good tip actually, if you don't mind buying from a charity shop. Buy a size or two lower than you want to get to, if you don't manage it you have only lost a £ or two.

;)

The thing is, I have not stopped eating.

I am on conso at the minute and seem to be losing about 4oz a day at the lower end of the scale, more than a pound a day on other days.

Still no desire to eat chocolate etc.

If I want something sweet then I am having jelly with sweetened greek yoghurt, sometimes 3 times a day and still losing.

This diet is something else.

:D
