Four week JUDDD results are in!!
 
Today marks my four-week JUDDD-iversary, and I wanted to share my results. I started September 27 as a DD and weighed 193.6. This morning I weigh 181.6 for a total loss of 12 pounds! :clap: :jumpjoy: :love:

AND, today is the start of TOM for me, so I was expecting to have massive water retention, so I don't know what happened there. I lost quickly at the start, and then added more carbs and had an unpleasant experience with some wheat bran, so I spun my wheels for a little in the middle. But my ball kept bouncing its way down the stairs nonetheless.

This plan makes me so happy. I :heart:love:heart: that I can have a real sammy if I want one with some nice grain bread, or a Luna bar, or actually use a cracker to scoop up cheese dip (rather than a pork rind!:stars:), or a nice banana without guilt...or even a simple bowl of oatmeal. These were things I had forsaken in an effort to lose my excess weight. It was a sacrifice I was willing to make in order to see success, only I wasn't seeing success (except for my very first time on LC). I even spent a month this summer doing strict induction, and only ever lost the initial few pounds of water weight.

I just want to say thanks to all the wonderful JUDDD BUDDDs who are always so helpful, so supportive, and always ready to brainstorm ideas. You are a dear group of people. I always have such a positive vibe in this forum. It :sing:!!! I hope all the newcomers to this plan get to experience the same.

Love you, JUDDD BUDDDs!!!

Yayyy, Andrea!!! :jumpjoy: :high5: That's amazing weight loss even with the little "wheels spinning" in the middle!! 12 pounds in 4 weeks is awesome!! :sing:

This plan makes me :heart:happy:heart: too :) I think that's why we are such a happy, upbeat bunch here in JUDDDland, because every other day we eat *anything* we want :love:

SoHappy 10-25-2011 10:13 AM

I'm blown away! I'm agog! And I'm thrilled for you! :laugh:

That weight loss is just wonderful, especially when you stop to realize that it occurred only from the *diet days* half of the month, and the other half of the month were the *keep the metabolism up* days of the month... when you were apparently including sandwiches, crackers with dip, bananas, and cereal in your diet! LOL :hyst: You heretic!

But here's the thing to remember. It was YOU who did this. JUDDD was only your vehicle. You paid attention to your numbers, you paid attention to your measurements and calories, and you did your Down Days. These results are because you followed the plan.

I'm really happy for you. You're a great example for us and an inspiration. Congrats! :clap:

See??...See!?!...THIS is why I love this board!! Everyone is happy to celebrate each other's successes! Yes, Pat, I'm a heretic...me with my oatmeal and bananas. :hyst: And, you're right, I lost this weight by following the plan and watching my numbers. In reality, I had 14 DDs. The other 14 days were filled with foods I enjoy...and felt NOTHING like I was on a "diet". In fact, sometimes I was scrambling to eat more just so I could get my calories high enough.

It's almost like magic. :love::heart::love:

Thanks so much guys! I love reading about everyone's successes with this plan!
