2nd GOAL!! (I must be dreaming...NOPE!)
 
OK, my head's spinning on this one :stars: I set my new goal earlier this week to get down to 142# by Thanksgiving, and I wake up today AT GOAL! ??? :stars: :jumpjoy:

I seriously can't believe this. I mean, I knew I'd been sticking those UD/DD numbers all week like a gymnast sticking the landing, and this JUDDD thing works like a well-oiled machine for me when I do this and I can't NOT lose when I keep to my calorie limits, but STILL!!!!! :eek:

I thought this would take me at least another week to do (after all, I kept hearing on LC forum how hard and slow it was to lose more when you were so close to goal already), and I just set my new signature last night to reflect what I thought I'd be WORKING toward, but here I am today - - GOAL!! :eek:

This seems TOO EASY, not that I'm complaining, but I was so used to long days and weeks dragging on LC with no loss. To have the weight fall off me and run shrieking away into the night just doesn't register with me, even now that I've been JUDDDg over a month!

My scale only does the whole numbers, but I could tell it had to be on the low side of 144 last night because it seemed like it wanted to go lower. Then I get on the scale this morning with a shirt, a sweater, and a pair of pants on and it was saying 144 at that time!! So I took those things off, and here I am - 142!! :stars: :jumpjoy: I weighed again to make sure - you know how that goes when you can't believe what it says. But it's there!

GOAL!!! :jumpjoy:

:jumpjoy: I'm just so excited and overwhelmed so forgive my babbling, but now I'm off to a fundraiser turkey noodle dinner and it's an UD! :jumpjoy:

Have a great day on JUDDD everyone! :high5:

julietcc 11-12-2011 08:55 AM

Wow! That's awesome! :jumpjoy:

I'm convinced that JUDDD is a great way to get the last few pounds off and keep them off. It worked for me. Enjoy your up day today!

SoHappy 11-12-2011 09:05 AM

Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :laugh:

And you're right, when you have those numbers right, it's hard NOT to lose fat! :laugh:

And, yeah.. this is a whole lot different than what we read over on *another forum*. And the saddest thing is that when people read something repeated enough times, they start repeating it themselves, and believing it. But that doesn't always make it true. Obviously for you and many HERE, it isn't true at all!!!

If anything, many folks here have to hustle up and figure out how to stop losing weight so they can remain at the weight they want to maintain at for awhile! :D

Congratulations on your NEW Even Lower GOAL Weight! Thanksgiving is sure going to be fun this year, isn't it. :hyst:

I felt your excitement right through my monitor!

I'm so thrilled for you!!!

Joedi 11-13-2011 06:49 PM

Yay Sophie!

So pleased for you! I also set a new goal a couple of lbs lower, just to have some bounce room, and made it really easily!

Enjoy your UD...eating for a good cause... What could be better?? Lol!

Thanks, everyone! :love:

I had a whoosh overnight that whooshed away my hormonal water weight and another pound with it. I'm at 141# !!

I didn't intend to get this low. :laugh:

I may have to tweak my UD #s if I continue to lose. It's just that I'm not sure if I should do that before the holiday eating starts (I need Sat. to be a FD because it's a T-giving dinner at my family's, then comes next Thurs - Tgiving, and so on)...

:welcome: to MY world!! :laugh: Wait until after the holidays to tweak. You may find you won't really need them to be tweaked, as I am. I tweaked up some and now I have to go down again because my weight was creepy up, a tiny bit at a time, up creepy up it was! :down:

:laugh: I think you are right about waiting until after the holidays to tweak! I was feeling that instinct too... Because I don't want to get up a few pounds and then compound it with holiday eating for the next 1.5 months.

But after NYE, there will be a few months of winter to tweak around. :)

Sandelio 11-17-2011 09:21 AM

Dumb Question.

Of course everyone has their personal preference for how skinny is TOO skinny, BUT it's not like you could starve to death or become anorexic eating this way - so why would you tweak at all?

:dunno:

If your body keeps losing, there must still be some fat, right? It would have to stop at some point even if you left your numbers alone, wouldn't it?

:confused:

(And if that at ALL sounded derogatory, that's not how I meant it. I'm just curious.....)

Congrats to BOTH of you!!!

:jumpjoy:

Hi Sandello, no problem with any questions :)

For me, there is such a thing as too skinny. When I first started Metformin years ago, it messed with my appetite so much I almost didn't eat. I would take a few bites of something and feel stuffed, and I wasn't eating the most nutritious foods either. Had bathroom issues too.

During that time, I lost too much weight. I went from my normal range in the 140s down to below 125 before I went to the doctor and got my meds adjusted. On my adult frame, 125 is almost skeletal. That's what I weighed in junior high. I never wanna see that low of a weight again, lol. My doctor was alarmed at the weight loss and that my periods had stopped.

I might have still been losing fat during that time, but I think we NEED *some* fat on us and in us for a bit of padding and to look our best, as well as cushioning our insides. I don't know, but my body might have been cannibalizing my muscles at that point. :eek:

Another thing about losing too much (even 10# less than I am right now) is that it stops looking good on my body type/frame. My body seems to have a set-point for my adult self of in the 140s, and I think I look good here.

I CAN go down in the 130s and have done that a number of times in my adult life (nothing to do with the Rx), maybe to 135# and still looked and felt good. But it feels like that would be a little too thin to me now and now that I'm looking at 40, I'm not sure it would look good on my face. :dunno: Plus I don't wanna have a too-big-looking head on a scrawny body! :laugh:

However, I may reconsider how much to lose - I'm funny like that :laugh:

Sandelio 11-17-2011 09:42 AM

That all makes perfect sense Sophie!

I'm just still curious if there wouldn't be a point where the numbers you used for "weight loss" wouldn't end up your "maintenance numbers" at a given body weight.

Wait - where's the guy with all the charts - :hyst:

I think this is very interesting, I shall be watching you carefully and following suit. Even though we don't celebrate Tgiving over here the eating/drinking season gets underway.

I so agree with this, I am much older than you and so have to watch the low weight even more carefully.

Enjoy the freedom JUDDD is giving you, I am!

Well, for me being any thinner then the 135 I am right now I start to look "old" and sickly (53 and skinny will do that). I have gotten down to 128 in the past, about 14 years ago, age 39 and even then people were asking me if I was sick. And I also know I can continue to lose, and at some point it will not be fat, but muscle. Fat loss stops somewhere, but it's doesn't mean we don't stop losing. Just look at anyone who has an extreme ED. They will be down to skin and bones and still lose weight, but it's not weight, it's their own body eating away at anything it can get it's hands on; muscle, organs, etc. We need calorie energy to survive and that has to come from some where. If we aren't eating up to the calories we need, I believe, and there is no more fat to fuel those needed calories, our bodies, again, finds the calorie energy from other parts of our bodies.

I tweak to stay where I am. I don't want to lose anymore weight. I am happy and healthy, feeling wonderful and looking the best I have in years at this 135 weight. In order to do this, I need to tweak, up or down, those calories I eat everyday now. And you can put on weight eating this way, if your calories are not set at a good gap, I feel, or lose too much eating this way because, as in my case, my metabolism is running as it did when I was in my early teens/20s so I need to watch that I'm eating enough now. I can feel it, and I see how it working because when I eat now, at the right JUDDD calories for maintenance I stay the weight I like. When I lower them a bit I start to lose again, very quickly. My metabolism is just :sing: and I need to keep it that way, but not let it make me a "skinny old looking lady" which will happen by just eating the calories I did to lose. I will continue to lose, I've proven it already.

Thus I tweak and adjust. ;)
