Here’s me at my top weight, 114kgs or so, in May 2010:

And again, around the same time (I really hate this photo!):

Here’s me after 10 weeks on Dukan, back in around August 2010 – I was at about 99kgs here:



And then here’s me after about 21 weeks on the diet, so around October 2010, at my lowest weight yet – 88kgs or so.


And then another one taken in August 2011 – taken to mirror the pose and facial expression of my least favorite photo (the second one on this page) by the same workmate who took the horrid one. I’m at about 95kgs in this shot (so up a fair amount from October 2010):

    • Hi Elsie!

      Well done on making the decision to start out on this road. The first week or so can be pretty challenging- make sure you get all the exercise recommended in the book, and drink your water! 🙂

      I’m 163cms tall- I can never remember what that comes out to in feet, 5’3/5’4 or so. Once you hit your target weight, also be sure to do the next couple of phases of the diet- consolidation and stabilisation- or you’ll just end up putting the weight back on again. Trust me, I know from experience… 😉

    OMG C!!!!
    What an amazing difference!!! Clearly your body responds to the Dukan way 🙂 I KNOW you can achieve this again & you’re in a better position than you were when you FIRST started last year! I hardly recognized you in your Oct. pic!! Incredible really!!
    FOCUS FOCUS…. F O C U S!!!!!!!!! 😀


  3. You can really see the difference in the photo’s. I’ve been on the diet for 3 weeks. So far I’ve lost almost 5kg. I am happy with it so far. I have slipped. I had cake on my birthday and my hubby’s. But I am finding new ways to cook things.
    Hubby has noticed the weight I’ve lost but I can’t see it.
    I think the best thing to come out of this is that I now exercise every day. I used to maybe do it 1 day and then couldn’t be bothered. Now if I don’t go for my walk then I do Wii. I’m planning on taking it 10kg at a time once I’ve lost the first 5kg.
    Well done on your progress and I look forward to trying some of your recipes
