Hi ELEVENTHSUNDOWN! I am also in my 20's and am working towards losing a fairly large amount of weight. Probably about 80 pounds is my ultimate goal. I have had some health issues that have increased the push to lose weight. I'm slowly learning that this isn't something we can do alone. It's difficult for me to talk to my family and friends as well, because several of them can't really understand because they have never struggled with weight or health issues and the other friends aren't ready to lose weight yet. It's a difficult thing to balance personal accountability with outside support. I don't know anything about the Dukan diet. Any good internet resources that I use to learn about it? Good luck to you!!

Welcome and good luck to you!!! Glad you joined our great team this will be the SUPPORT that everyone needs to be successful. I have met lots of great friends on here.....online and in person....AWESOME place!!! I haven't heard of the Dukan Diet...my hubby and I started the South Beach Diet because his doctor wants him on low carb/high protein. So we did it together.

Hey everyone! I'm new here (like everyone) and I am on my first day of the Dukan diet. My doctor recommended a low carb diet because of my PCOS/insulin resistance and gave me some options. The Dukan diet seems to be the best for me because of the inclusion of oat bran, which I love, and vegetables.

I feel really uncomfortable talking about my weight with my friends and family, but I know accountability really matters when it comes to losing weight, so I'm hoping to find some new friends.
