I know! Poor Linda. Struggling to keep from losing weight because JUDDD is working too well for her! What a fun problem to have, as opposed to the reverse! Love JUDDD. LOVE it!

WOE: Maintaining on Juddd
Start Date: Made Goal on 23/10/2011 - Stats updated daily
Well today is my One Month on Juddd!
I said I would give it a month....and it has been a lot easier and more enjoyable than I expected!
I weighed in a 143.75 on 31 August, and today, 1 September, I am 140.25. Thats 3.5lbs for the month.
Not spectacular...but definately in the right direction....I would be happy for that every month!

What is bugging me is that I am UP 1/2 a lb from this time last week! I REALLY hope I am not going in the wrong direction!

I am trying to look at my weight loss for the month...rather than being depressed over the 1/2lb up from last week! Cant even blame TOM, cos I am mid cycle!

I get mad that a 1/2lb can affect me at all! Its just that I am so close to goal...and had got to the point where nothing was working for loss....and I JUDDD....and so want it to be the WOE for me!

So, anyway...I have worked out my UD cals to be 1700 (about 200 less than the Juddd cal..for a 40 year old, 5 ft 6 female, with a goal weight of 136, exercising 1-3 times a week) with a 30% DD of 500....and have been faithfully sticking to that...despite the scale!

Will give it another a couple of weeks before altering any numbers.

hugs

Wonderful results. You are two weeks ahead of me. I think it is great that we are documenting our experience for one another. I am so happy for you. KUTGW, and thanks for allowing us to journey alongside you

Thanks Marie!
Are you using Juddd to maintain? I notice your siggie says "striving to maintain", or are you hoping for a bit more loss?

You seem to have taken to it very well...do you feel it could be your woe for life?
I do!

I'm completely thrilled about this news! You had got to the point where you were not losing weight on low carb! I think you were actually just not losing anything! I know it was pretty upsetting for you, and I know I felt sorry about that.

And now look at you! Three and a half pounds lost in just this first month! And eating low calories (I'll use that dreaded term.. dieting..) on only half of those days! But eating quite deliciously on the other half of those days, thank you very much.

I wouldn't worry about being up a mere 1/2 pound from last week. Don't know why that sometimes happens. I've finally come to fully realize that none of it makes much sense. It'll be gone again and there will be more weight loss to follow. That's what you can count on.

I don't know why we FOCUS so much on a number, and on what a number might be today or tomorrow, and that we'd be happier of that number were a different number, when we should just relax and know that we are now getting on with our lives. This is how we eat, and the number is the number. And eventually, the number will get to where we want to see it. And in the meantime, this is how we eat. And this is how we get to eat anything we'd enjoy, because.. after all.. we're getting on with our lives and enjoying each day as we live it! We're not holding out to start enjoying it once we see a certain number, we're enjoying it now, as we head toward that future number. When it arrives, great. But we need to live our lives up to that point so that it when that day arrives, it's no different than the day that preceded it. The number showed up, and your life is much the same as it was the day before and the week before that.

You are so beautiful and already so trim and sparkly. If you never shed another ounce, I think you have *arrived*.

I think you are very smart to leave your numbers as they are right now and see what the next two or three weeks brings you. Truthfully, I think it does sometimes take a body a bit of time to adjust to this calorie cycling thing, but obviously your body is responding. You're doing a great job. Continued success. And congratulations once again on the weight loss! Yay!

Great progress! I hate when I go backwards (I was up almost 3 pounds after my second week due to overeating Up days and a failed DD).

Anyways, I'm sure your blip will be right off. The scale really does fluctuate a lot on JUDDD.

You know, that's a good point, Paula. Maybe we should be warning the newbies of that fact when they first come here and get started. I agree that we seem to get more weight *bounce for the buck* on this plan than some others cause us. Of course, we get weight LOSS on this plan too.

Well, I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things, so my actual numbers aren't where I want them yet. But so far this is me by the numbers (you know how I love my numbers, lol):

Tues (DD): 480 cal/30 carbs, weight=193.6
Wed (UD): 1476 cal/19 carbs, weight=190.8
Th (DD): 626 cal/32 carbs, didn't weigh that morning
Fri (UD): 2051 cal/160 carbs, didn't weigh that morning
Sat (DD): weight=189.4 (I re-weighed after my last post)

My actual goal for a DD is 500, and for an UD is 1610. I don't currently have a goal # of carbs that I shoot for. However, what seems to make the most sense to me is to allow my carbs to be a little high on DD to make up for the fat I'm not eating, and my carbs to be in "low carb" range to balance the higher percentage of fat I will eat on those days. If that makes any sense.

Hope your DD is on track. Mine is looking good so far! I need to go post in the daily thread (until it becomes a weekly thread, that is. Lol!).

Just wanted to applaud you once again on the nice weight loss numbers you are getting so far this week. It's always nice to read about ever more success on JUDDD! Yay!

Hi Jo,

I am mainly using JUDDD to maintain. I would like to lose a few more pounds, but, if I don't, that is okay. I am hoping it can be my woe for life. I am having issues with sugar cravings since I've added it back, but, so far, it is going okay. I am giving it a month like you, then will decide. For now, I am loving JUDDD.

Once again, Sohappy...you have said just what I needed to hear! You are so kind and sensible...and you always take the time to write that bit extra...I really feel that you are our Fairy Judddmother!

I think part of my problem is that I can't believe a WOE I actually LIKE will work for me....after all, nothing has worked permenantly before.

And thankyou so much for saying I was beautiful and sparkly! That was such a lovely thing to say...I have been smiling all night!

It IS funny how we get so obsessed with numbers....not even my DH would notice half a pound on me....so why the heck should I give it any power over me??

And Goal weights too...where do they come from? I dont even remember why I chose mine...just that it was under 140! Its daft in a way...I am determined to get there...though that 4 lbs...so important in my mind..is not going to make me look a smidge different!

I wonder if this is a female thing...we judge ourselves so much on our weight...far more than men do.
Not surprising men dont understand us...sometimes I dont understand us!

Anyway..thanks again for your words of wisdom! I have copied and pasted all the help you and Beeb have given me into a Word file...to read when I feel a wee bit down.... A sort of Joedi "how to do Juddd" file!

Hugs
Jo

You're really doing well! Your UD and DD numbers are slightly lower than mine. I shoot for a max of 650 on a DD and a minimum of 1700 on an UD.

I am completely stuffed this evening at 530 calories and 18 carbs. Must be the oat fiber!

Heck, sweetie, a half a pound could be a good....hmmmm....you know what soon one morning or even just a fart!

I'm not in ANY way making light of how your are feeling, please don't take it that way, but trying to point out that a 1/2 pound could be just about anything, water probably from eating too much salt or maybe you are just eating too much fiber and it's sitting just waiting to make it's way into the world!

You have done SO amazing, physically AND mentally, be proud of yourself!!!

Just trying to put things in a "different" light for you, my dearest JUDDD BUDDD!

Jo you are doing great. That half pound will be gone in no time. I am liking this cal carb cycling. I think it has to be wonderful for the body changing things up all the time.
I was down to 143.2 this morning. That is 1.5lbs lost in a week even with my refeed in there so I'm pretty happy about that. So today I did another refeed. I tried to keep this one healthier. The worst thing was a pumpkin donut. Last time I had a pumpkin muffin which is about triple the carbs and cals of the donut. I have to have something bad...lol. so I'm eating my kashi cereal with real milk instead od almond milk and bananas. Huge treats. I bought some sara lee light whole wheat bread. 45 cals per slice, almond butter and sf polaners jelly and had a wonderful almond butter and jely sandwich. I also bought some fat free frozen vanilla yogurt. This stuff is heaven. The hardest thing is keeping my fat down. That is a very major part of doing this. The thinking is that keeping the fat low but the carbs high hels in making sure there isn't any fat stored. The massive depletion workout helps with that too. And believe me I do a major workout the morning of my refeed. Tomorrow I will go back to eating keto and then Monday back to hi lo cal days until the next refeed. What I wonder about is how it is on the body going in an out of ketosis but I guess it must work. Still the weirdest thing is that I can do this with all of these carbs and not have huge cravings. That baffles my mind but I like it.

Also not making light of the situation, but I can TOTALLY see myself letting a good one rip and then running to the scale to see if I weigh less.

Pmsl! After my recent experiment with wheat bran... I could probably have lost half a stone ( and a dh!) through gas!
That stuff sure does not agree with me! Haven't had a reaction like that since I stewed my rhubarb in xylitol!! Ouch!

In my weight watchers days I would cut my toenails before weighing... Never thought of farting though... Where where you when I needed you, beeb?

Morning all! I'm down another half pound to 183 this morning. I started with my first DD on September 22, eleven days ago. At that time I weighed 184.4. Since then I have bounced between 185 and 183, so only a net loss of 1.4 pounds. I know, I know, it's not even two weeks! And I know I am carrying water weight again with the increased carbs, so the loss is of real fat. I just want to get below 180 and into the 170s.

I had a Whoosh!

I have never had a whoosh before..not since starting low carb in march this year!

Yesterday I was 140.25, and a bit low about it, as it was up 1/2 lb from the previous week.

Thanks to the advice and encouragement on this forum, I just stuck to my UD cals (I always have to fight the urge to cut cals if I dont see loss..old ED behaviour)

My weight this morning was 137.75! Thats a 2.5 loss...which is amazing for me!

I started Juddd 33 days ago, at 143.75...so that is a 6lb loss...I am so close to goal, with a slow metabolism after 2 years of very low cal/low fat...that is just amazing!

I am just it sticks!

I think is may have had something to do with fact my body finally got rid of the wheat bran I ate 2 days ago.

I have never has such a reaction to anything I have eaten before since starting low carb! Being me though...I want to "master" it...so may try adding it back in small amounts when I am in maintainance!

I think this sceptical girl is actually starting to believe that she has found something that works for her!

I'm tickled pink to read this, Jo! That's a great whoosh.. probably pretty close to the kind of *whoosh* a person gets who has undergone the colon cleansing regimen required prior to a colonoscopy.

And I'm also very happy to hear that you resisted the urge to cut your calories just on the strength of a scale reading that had bounced up temporarily! You know the calories you are on are set well, and the foods you choose for your menus are wholesome. So a brief uptick on the scale doesn't signal the time to make calorie cuts.

Glad you are becoming an increasingly strong believer. You know what just holding to low calorie and low fat did for you.. well, you mentioned the slowed metabolism. And you know that just holding to low carb, even within a very reasonable calorie range, wasn't resulting in any weight loss for you. Some us don't seem to do all that well on low carb.

So for us, JUDDD can open doors and help us usher in those slim new bodies we're hoping for and dreaming of! Believe it!

Congrats!

Joedi, have you read the book Wheat Belly? I'm not sure what he says is all true, but even if part of it is the wheat we get today is so different from what it used to be. If you have any sensitivity to it at all, I would stay far away from it.

I know I feel better without a lot of grain type items.

YAY on the whoosh, though. Hope it holds. You are doing so well.

I suspect I may have a sensitivity. Thank you for the book recommendation. My library has it on order, and I've reserved a copy.

If folks are truly allergic or sensitive to particular foods, obviously they would sure be well advised to avoid those foods in meals!

I've known people who were either sensitive or allergic to shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, milk, eggs, soy, and wheat. But none of them had to be on the watch against all of them, and these allergic people have been the exceptions among all the others I've known in my life.

But some folks just have enough sensitivity problems that even just switching brands of something can throw them off. Like causing some dogs to have a couple of days of bad diarrhea if you switch brands of dog food. And you have to be careful putting the livestock out on fresh green grass in the spring, after their gut has become used to eating dry hay in the barn for several months.

I think there is even some belief that we can increase our own sensitivity and sensitive response to all carbs, no matter from what source, by tightly withholding most carb from our diets for a prolonged period of time.

Like the old wisdom always went, if you're going to introduce a new food into your diet, go easy with just a bit at a time, and some time between these small servings. Like when we are introducing a baby to new foods, slowly.

I expect this *problem* was mainly caused by the wheat bran, but pay attention for any reactions from the oat fiber too.. just in case that had a little part in this too.

Jo and Ann: Great job on the losses, you guys! Keep at it!!

I was pleased to see another pound gone this morning. That makes 5.2 since Tuesday...of course, I had TOM in there, too, so that helped. But still...5.2 in as many days makes me happy! I'm kicking myself now for ever leaving JUDDD a few months back. Where was my brain? Oh well...it seems my brain is back in the building again, and I'm sticking with JUDDD like glue.

What a great day it was for me reading all your posts and seeing the losses! So glad you guys are seeing our beloved JUDDD working for you!!

UD for me yesterday and I ate probably more food then I have since starting JUDDD, plus my couple of Saturday Night Fever drinks and I was only up .4 pounds. I did the higher UD of 1,800 cals and I'm betting it was a bit higher than that, but the scale looked good to me!! DD today and I'm planning on eating up to the 900 I've decided on. Tomorrow will give me a little better idea if these cals are the "right fit" for me to stop losing weight and maintaining!

I had a nice drop on the scale today(stats to the left), but, I doubt that it will stick. This is my first weekend of both Sat/Sun being UP days, and I don't think I will continue on this path. I think I will stick with Sat being an UD, Sunday a DD or IF necessary, MD. I need to get a handle on the sweets and junk I've been eating on my UD's since starting JUDDD. I know it has to do with ME, and nothing with JUDDD. I REALLY want this to work for me. I am feeling absolutely miserable today from overindulgence mainly on junk. When I started hhcg end of May, I got off all the junk until a few weeks ago. On the UP side I am learning alot about my body, and certain things I suspected(like fatigue, headaches) are tied to the sugar. NOW, to wean myself off it again. It's up to ME. Thanks for listening.

I think most of the trouble in this area comes when people, realizing that they can eat anything they choose to on JUDDD, start in having stuff they couldn't touch previously... pretty much every single meal of every single day!

I can see how it would be pretty easy to quickly grab onto previous poor eating habits, just because you have the freedom to do so, and then just eat those poor food choices within your calorie allowances.

And I term these *poor food choices* not at all because I think all that carby stuff is evil, and we're all condemned to burn if we include any of it back into our diets. Just that many of us are here in the first place because we couldn't pace ourselves. We overdid a good thing. Or should I call it a tasty thing.

I know that LCF has a membership of folks who overall don't tolerate higher carbohydrate foods as well as some other blessed and naturally slim people do. So I'm glad to be able to enjoy bread for my sandwiches and toast with my eggs and bacon again, but that's not what I eat every breakfast or lunch. And I had a couple of those brownies and really enjoyed them, but I knew to leave most of the pan for DH.

I think most of us will be fine just remembering to pay some attention to what those carb numbers are creeping up to. As Dr. Atkins brought to our attention, we all have our individual Critical Carb Levels, above which we'll probably not have weight loss or even experience weight gain again.

I know that is somewhat intertwined with the quantity of fats and oils we consume at the same time. But if we continue to pay attention to carb numbers as well as our calories, I don't think it's too long before we sort of zero in on the carb level that works wonderfully for each of us. And fortunately, if we do JUDDD, that can be a considerably higher carb level than most of us thought we'd ever be able to manage. So, once again... Yay, JUDDD!
