Holy Moly, Kris!! I agree, go get checked out and I'm SO happy no one was hurt!

Gracie and back, Betty! Looking forward to seeing some good weight loss posts from you guys!

Well, back down again, as usual! 133.8 after a nice DD. After all the "fun with food" I had this weekend I am always so happy to be on this WOE!! I just know a good DD will take care of the "overages" I can create in social settings.

Gotta JUDDD!!

Good Heavens! I don't know how I missed your post, Kris, but glad I read Linda's post above and noticed she addressed you! I went back and found that you'd been in a car accident. I do hope you're feeling better now.

That exact sort of accident happened to me, except the guy slid out in front of my car because it was just snowing.

Hope all the details are ironed out now and you have wheels.

I hope she's fully recovered soon! That sounds so stressful.

Working with a new trainer sounds exciting! I'm sorry about the accident. Nothing like a little disaster coming out of nowhere to muck everything up. Sounds like it won't be too long before you have your car back, though.

Shelly, Love the new pic! You've worked so hard. I feel like it's time for you to be able to relax and enjoy it. I can completely understand feeling anxiety over not knowing whether this is working for you or will work for you, though. I hope you're able to get into a good comfortable pattern soon.

Those are great results for a week!

ETA: Forgot about me... lol I'm having a bit of a woosh I think! Down to 181.6 today after a good DD. Today I'm going shopping and my almost-3 year-old is going to go crazy because I'll be reading all of the packages to figure out what I can eat for how many calories on UDs. It has been so many years since I've thought in terms of calories that I just have no idea.

day 6 of JUDDD for maintenance
yesterday was a - UD

Goal weight - 122
LDW - 119.0
Last DD weight - 118.8 (monday)
(I will only be weighing the day after a DD)

Today's weight - NWI (however I'm not suppose to weigh but out of curiosity I did and I'm at 118.4, can you believe it?!!!)

difference from last DD -X.X


breakfast
8 oz FF greek yogurt, 3 oz blueberries and 1 oz pecans

Lunch
6 inch club sandwich from subway with mayo and pepper jack cheese, 1 pkg of baked lays chips

Dinner
8 oz FF greek yogurt, 3 oz of blueberries and 1.5 oz of pecans


Snack
crackers, tootsie pop and some pistachio's



Calories 2016 protein 10% Carbs 32% Fat 58%


I told my self that I wasnt going to weigh after the up days but I was just curious to find out the difference between my dd and up. I must tell you I was quite shocked to see that I lost on an up day. I also know that I am still retaining water because my ring is tight.

Still pretty siked about all this. I am definitely hoping that this will get my body to where it is no longer so sensitive to carbs.

Yes I even had a subway sandwich and still lost, can you believe that?

Today I weighed in at my lowest weight ever (well not ever but you know what I mean) and it was after an up day

I must add though that I'm positive that the 20 some miles I walk at work must be helping

So very pleased to hear that JUDDD is working so smoothly and with good results so far in your maintenance. May it always be thus!

Well, of course there are some times when we do get big bounces on the scale for one reason or another, sometimes not even dependent on our food choices, but for the most part, it's pretty easy. I think one of the biggest things is to keep tabs on your weight, so that if you are gaining or losing more than you want to have happen, you can adjust your calories a bit and get your problem nipped in the bud.

Good job!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. The other parties insurance accepted liability and I can pick up a rental car either tonight after hubby is off work or in the morning (whichever he wants to do).

The insurance company offered me a small monetary amount for pain and suffering but because my back and neck have been getting progressively worse, I told him I want to put that on the back burner, not denying it, but need to see how I feel in a few days. Made an appointment with a chiropractor Thursday and have him do an evaluation and will know if I still feel icky by then or not.

If he thinks it is just simple then I will take the amount they offered, but if he suggests more therapy then I am going to have to go in for negotiations.

missed my gym visit today, was gonna go tonight after dinner, but i am thinking i am going to go lay down.

Kris, I'm sorry you are still feeling the achy effects of the accident. I sure hope you feel better tomorrow. Sometimes these things just magically go away overnight, and sometimes you ache worse the next morning. Hope you feel better. Glad you're getting a rental. That'll be a workable way to attend to all the errands and running around until you get your car back.

Mayleesa, I'm sorry you are still sick and feeling so lousy. AND, not losing any weight. I'll bet you'll see a weight loss whoosh when this illness has finally run its course, but oh so sorry for you right now. I know it makes you very unhappy not to have lost anything during the time of this illness, but I know one of these days you will be well again, and one of these days your weight loss will start in again, and it'll seem a whole lot better. Hang in there.

I'll use you as my inspiration for a good workout tomorrow. I love it once I'm there, but I've been slacking off, and now I need to strengthen the habit!

I so know what you mean! Once I get there, I'm on fire. I think the secret is to lay out my clothes the night before so I can jump into them, grab my water and jump in the car. When I get to the gym, the magic begins.....

Good for you for working out!

After a very low DD I hit a new low that is too low! - 111.4. I'll be eating high today 2000-2500 and continue to just do 3 DDs and 4 UDs every week. I like that plan!

Much nicer to have to eat more to hold your weight up than to keep fighting to keep it from going too high. LOL What a problem to have! Most dieters would just shake their heads at this!

As fun as breaking through a *century* barrier is, I think breaking into each new decade as we lose weight gives us way more fun because it happens more often for us and doesn't take as long.

But, wow! You're really doing this fast. Congratulations! I know you're happy, and we're happy about it too. Your success helps keep us all motivated and on our toes to not start getting sloppy!

Wow, I can hardly imagine getting TOO low, but apparently that can happen on JUDDD. While I'm happy where I am, I wouldn't mind coming down a few more pounds. However, I've probably had a few too many FDs, lol.

That is SO FABULOUS! I love coming here every day and seeing posts like this.

I'm happy that after a rather free day feast at Olive Garden with my parents last night, I'm only up .6 lb. After my great DD today, it'll be gone, and take some friends with it, I'm sure. My pattern has been to start Saturday morning about a pound under goal, then after two FDs on the weekend, I'm back up 4-5 pounds of water weight. It's always come back off by the next Saturday. I think the biggest key to success for me is being religiously strict on my DDs.

That is so great! How much have you lost since you started Judd on Dec. 7th? I love breaking through those decade barriers.

I think the biggest key to success for me is being religiously strict on my DDs.
Yes, if you are a person who can keep their UD calories well under control and stick to really good DDs, that seems to be able to work out well for maintenance. That's sure a nice and easy way to be able to live.

If you're a person who can easily eat 500 too many calories on UDs without even being aware of it, and even a whole lot more than that, then the luxury of Free Days is probably not a good thing to enjoy every UD.

That's why I still have to weigh each morning. If I'm letting myself get a little too free-wheeling with the Free Day calories, I know it's time to return to some real counted UDs. Darn.

Laurie: Sounds like your body has adjusted nicely to this WOE and you have made it so doable. Congrats on your success!


This week my focus is on exercise. My plan was cardio every day and strength training Mon-Wed-Fri. So, it's off to the gym again today. I love it when my body starts getting addicted to working out. It becomes fun instead of a chore. And I love that I have so many options indoors and out. This may be the year that I get back into golf and start walking the course instead of driving around in a cart!

Have decided not to weigh myself for a few days. When I do a lot of regular strength training, the scale goes up. Did you know that muscle is 70% water? Fat is almost 0% water. (That is why it floats, it's light and water resistant kind of like styrofoam). But it's bulky. When you lift weights your body begins building lean healthy muscle almost immediately. The bulky fat begins to burn and melt away because each new pound of muscle requires 50 more calories per day to maintain itself. And, as new muscle is building, it holds on to extra water and glycogen during the repair/building process. Interesting stuff.

Still, even knowing that, I hate to see the numbers on the scale go up! So, I'll wait a while.

Enough whining and excuses! (directed at myself!). I have been happily maintaining since the holidays. I had set a goal for myself to get back to working out and keeping my DD's under control then I ended up throwing my back out last week and have been whining and making excuses since then: pms, getting my boy ready to go back to school, dh's weird work hours right now, etc. You name it - if I can use it as an excuse, I have been!
Well enough!
My back feels much better so back to light workouts until there are no more twinges, then back onto full ones.
Down Days, shmound days! I own them! No more evening mini binges.
I'm going to have a good up day today and get my butt back in gear.
