    Hi All,

    I am now 3lbs away from my Dukan True weight (woooooop!!) but unless a miracle happens, I know I won't feel slim enough. I have lost really well on my upper body, but my hips and thighs are still big (being realistic, not just critical of my shape).

    Then I got to thinking, the next phase is more similar to SW red days, but still more limited - ie, 1 portion of carbs per week, the piece of fruit/wholemeal bread/cheese/1 gala. So, in theory, if my body has extra lbs to lose, they will continue to drop, as I am still following a reduced diet.

    I don't want to lose an unreasonable amount that I cannot maintain, but I also know I still feel bigger than I should be and could probably do with getting an extra 7lbs off.

    I always had 11.7 in my head as my ideal weight, and I am starting to think that could really be what I should aim for rather than 11.11/12 as suggested.

    Is it possible/realistic to move onto consolidation when I hit my Dukan true weight but lose those extra while on consolidation? I suppose if it is supposed to happen, my body will keep dropping the lbs.

    Talking in circles and answering my own question, think I just needed to get those thoughts out ;) lol

    I know what you mean - I'm ignoring my Dukan True weight as I'm going by my BMI instead. However, he's come up with a diet that very definitely does work and I imagine the True weight is what long-term we can maintain well. If you do go lower you might find that you yo-yo back up to the True Weight! Think long and hard and I know you'll do what's right for you - you've done so well getting this far.

    My Dukan True Weight is actually lower than I think I can get to and maintain. I started at 11st 13lbs - after 9 weeks am 11st. I can't remember what the first weight is called that is given - for me that was 8st 13lb - with weight loss suggested at 9st 3lb... I am aiming for 9.6-9.8. At this weight in the past I have still thought I was overweight - but being SO much heavier now I just wish I had appreciated being there in the past... Why is it we always want to be a lower weight than we are - and even when at a lower weight still want to be even lower???
    Life's odd isn't it.
