The fact is that I was always a thin person growing up, sometimes too thin, and I was thin by nature, I truly did not work for it. I ate a lot and did not exercise and was still thin and with a nice figure. Then a few things changed in my life that made me put on the pounds:
- We moved to the US:
- Huge portions of tasty food that are very bad for you!
- We go by car everywhere – no need to walk to the train every morning.
- I had 2 kids
I have made a few feeble attempts to lose weight, losing a few pounds here and there and always putting them back on and some more!
This situation was obviously not helping my normally happy self. This summer I lost all my pants to crazy seemingly unrelated “broke pants” incidents. No kidding, I am now left with only 3 pairs of pants, and I for once said that I would not buy anymore until I could get into all the nice ones I still have that are just a size or two too small.
But it wasn’t until October this year in where I stepped on my scale and saw a number I have not seen before. I had officially moved up to the next “tenth”. I have never been this big in my life, not even when pregnant! So that was it. I needed to do something or I was going to lose myself and get to the point of no return in where nothing matters because you don’t care anymore. I do not want to fall into that roller coaster of misery. So I changed!
I stumbled upon an article about the Dukan Diet at my doctor’s office and decided to give it a go. This is my journey through the Diet. I do hope to have the strength to see it through the end!
