And once that finally really sinks in, you just relax and know that all the food in the world is yours whenever you want it from now on. Well, you'll observe Down Days, but once you're in maintenance, even those will be reasonably generous if you want them to be.

You are actually completely free of food compulsions because nothing is ever going to be denied to you. You will be able to manage your appetite and your actual hungers, your restricted DD calories and the freedom of your UD calories, and eventually probably Free Days too, uncounted, unaccounted for, because you will have learned how to eat reasonably now.. and that's because you don't have to obsess over food anymore. Ever. Nothing needs ever be denied you again. Not on JUDDD.

One of the BEST JUDDD posts I've ever read. You should copy this and keep it somewhere so you can re-post it anytime anyone needs encouragement/advice. You NAILED it!

Thank you for the reminder! I'm headed to the store shortly and I definitely need to put that on my list! It's all fine and good to add carbs back in, but not if they mess up my blood sugar....and I won't know until I check...

My second day = DD Yesterday UD was pretty nice. I had some things I haven't had in about 4 months and it made me very happy! I had a .2 lbs loss today! (after 2 consecutive carb-rich days the past 2 days, I actually lost .9 lbs)

DD today. It is almost 1pm and I haven't had anything yet. Not hungry either. I will make some chicken broth and boil an egg and have some tea and have a small chicken salad tonight

If every DD is this easy, I'm going to do this for life!

I love you SoHappy!!! I think i will print that out and put it on my fridge!! I love everything you say!
Kas i think i am right there with you. This is the end of week 2 for me. Well i was doing it a little longer but had so many UD's in there with the holiday im not even counting...lol This week i think i finally hit my stride. I feel amazing!!!
Noella thats awesome that its working like this for you. I have noticed that for some people from the very beginning they can eat a little more carbs and lose weight. Some people just start right off losing and you seem to be one of them. Thats amazing and wonderful for you. I wish it would have been that for me.

Well, i am happy to say that i started out Mon morning at 150.0 and this morning i am 144.0!!!! WOW!!!! This week has been great and i have eaten more carbs this week and i really tried to hit that calorie ceiling. I think i found my perfect numbers it seems. 1800/500
I notice that a lot of people do well on those numbers. I think i have even pushed it a little over that on one day and still lost. Now, i have really worked on the nuts thing. I think that was being a factor for me. Im eating them now but im measuring them out and not just blindly eating them out of the can. I have a few salty ones left and I just get out a few and eat them. There is no more eating out of the can. I think that was a big downfall for me. Those dang nuts!!!!!
You know guys, have you noticed that MD's are really hard!! They are for me. I think it might be because im coming from a DD and im really hungry! I dont get hungry right away, like right now im not hungry, but its hard to keep my cals under 1200 the day after a DD. But i will make it today.
Im going to my dads for a birthday party and this is where i will have to watch myself. They are ordering fried chicken and potato wedges!!! Im bringing myself a salad so i wont overindulge in all of that. ill have a chicken breast and maybe 1 or 2 wedges and i should be able to keep it under 600 calories if i watch my cals for the day and keep them at about 500.
Well, again, i love everyoen here. I think this is the best group on this site and you know why?!?! Because JUDDD works!!!!!

KAS, I tried to send you a PM, but it's not happening yet

Two ways to quote:

1) On the bottom right of every post, there's a "Quote" button. Click that, and it will quote the entire post you are replying to and stick it in a reply box. You will then enter your reply.

2) If you only want to quote a bit of the message you're replying to, copy and paste the part you want into a message box (Quick Reply), then highlight what you pasted and click the right-most button at the top of the message box. Click the square button with the tail, and it will surround the highlighted words with quote marks. To make sure you have the right button, hover your mouse over the various buttons, and a pop-up will tell you what the button is for. In this case, it will say "Wrap QUOTE tags blahblahblah...."

Hope that helps!

Yesterday was suposed to be a UD but it turned into a 500 calorie DD instead. I kind of
wish I hadn't weighed this morning because I know that 4 pound overnight weight loss
was only water. Well today will be a good old UD and I know the scales tomorow will be
back up a few pounds. But it was kind of neat seeing 263 for the first time in years! Wishing everone here a good DD or UD .

Just checking In to say I finally found my stride after that two week vacation. I was struggling sticking to 500 cals on DDs so I upped them to 600-700 and I lost the weight I gained on the holidays PLUS a few more. I started JUDDD at 157 and this morning I was 146.5! I was 149 when the holidays started, then I went off plan for two weeks and went up to 151 because of that but it's gone now and then some. I still struggle on DDs with hunger but it's more manageable and the new number on the scale is really motivating to keep going! It's taken me a long time to lose but that's okay because I did it all while eating cookies, pizza, French fries and bread (in moderation). It's a great plan. If you stuck with it, it works. Plus it's so forgiving too.

Congratulations Shelly! I was really hoping you'd find your numbers and that JUDDD would send you some magic!

KAS what a great start! You're doing amazingly!!

My official weekly weigh-in was this morning.

From Friday 1/6 to Saturday 1/14 (8 days) I have lost: 5.8 lbs!
From my start date of 12/12 - 1/12 I lost 15 lbs! (16.8 so far on JUDDD in one month, 2 days!!!) The average, if my math is good, is just over 1/2 lb per day.
Since I'm only "dieting" every other day, I figure I'm averaging 1 lb. per DD.

My B.A.'s in English, so my math may be off, but whatever the case, I'm insanely happy right right now! to the JUDDD gods (i.e. Dr. Johnson) and thank you to Pat, and Linda, and all the experienced JUDDDers who have given me my life back. My LC losses were still coming, but more to the tune of 1/2 lb./week or so with a lot more bouncing than I'm seeing now, believe it or not.

JUDDD! Congratulations and WTG getting back into the groove.

From my start date of 12/12 - 1/12 I lost 15 lbs! (16.8 so far on JUDDD in one month, 2 days!!!) The average, if my math is good, is just over 1/2 lb per day.
Since I'm only "dieting" every other day, I figure I'm [U
averaging[/U] 1 lb. per DD.
YAYYYY! Great losses just dieting every other day!

KAS--WTG! Woot on the loss.

SoHappy--loved everything you said. I have some food allergy issues (milk and oats that I know of), so have to take that into account, but the jist of your post still works for me.

Noelle--my first DD today too. But I am just waking up. Planning an egg for breakfast, a small salad and some broth for lunch, and then veggies and lean protein for supper.

Shelly--holy cow! 6 pounds in 5 days?! Amazing!

Acronym help please--MD? And MUDDD?

Skin--yay for you too!

Dawn--Yippee! Seeing all these weigh-in's with the scale going down is super motivating.

So as I mentioned, it's my first DD, and my 14yo dd made cinnamon struesel coffee cake for breakfast. LOL But, thanks to my paleo woe from the past 5 mos, I'm good with passing it up. It helps having the carb cravings under control already. I've got a plan and I'm sticking to it.

Paleo Banana Bread:
3 eggs separated
4 tbsp honey
4 tbsp olive oil
2 mashed bananas
1tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups almond flour

Oven 350*
Cream egg yolks and honey in large bowl until light and fluffy.
Add, remaining ingredients (except egg whites) and combine well.
In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form
Fold egg whites into batter 1/3 at a time

You can make this as bread by greasing a loaf pan with coconut or olive oil and baking for 40-45 minutes.

Or make muffins (what I did), and bake 15-18 minutes (I got 18 muffins).

I calculated the nutrient info based on adding up all the ingredients and came up with (per muffin): Cal 140, Net Carbs 8, Protein 4, Fat 10.

140# for third day straight.

I had set 143# as the top of my maintenance range, but I haven't seen that weight for over two weeks now.

Yes, always top priority!

While JUDDD gives us the absolute freedom to have anything in the world we want, which is a great joy, that doesn't translate into having to eat everything out there.

We still get the absolute freedom to NOT eat anything we choose not to include in our menus. And that's every bit as nice.

Kas i think i am right there with you. This is the end of week 2 for me. Well i was doing it a little longer but had so many UD's in there with the holiday im not even counting...lol This week i think i finally hit my stride. I feel amazing!!!
Noella thats awesome that its working like this for you. I have noticed that for some people from the very beginning they can eat a little more carbs and lose weight. Some people just start right off losing and you seem to be one of them. Thats amazing and wonderful for you. I wish it would have been that for me.

Well, i am happy to say that i started out Mon morning at 150.0 and this morning i am 144.0!!!! WOW!!!! This week has been great and i have eaten more carbs this week and i really tried to hit that calorie ceiling. I think i found my perfect numbers it seems. 1800/500
I notice that a lot of people do well on those numbers. I think i have even pushed it a little over that on one day and still lost. Now, i have really worked on the nuts thing. I think that was being a factor for me. Im eating them now but im measuring them out and not just blindly eating them out of the can. I have a few salty ones left and I just get out a few and eat them. There is no more eating out of the can. I think that was a big downfall for me. Those dang nuts!!!!!
You know guys, have you noticed that MD's are really hard!! They are for me. I think it might be because im coming from a DD and im really hungry! I dont get hungry right away, like right now im not hungry, but its hard to keep my cals under 1200 the day after a DD. But i will make it today.
Im going to my dads for a birthday party and this is where i will have to watch myself. They are ordering fried chicken and potato wedges!!! Im bringing myself a salad so i wont overindulge in all of that. ill have a chicken breast and maybe 1 or 2 wedges and i should be able to keep it under 600 calories if i watch my cals for the day and keep them at about 500.
Well, again, i love everyoen here. I think this is the best group on this site and you know why?!?! Because JUDDD works!!!!!
Shelly, it looks like you're really hitting your stride now! How wonderful for you, and I hope it just gets more rewarding for you as you continue to follow the plan. Well, I should say that it will just get more and more rewarding as you go along.

You'll be seeing that number again very soon, I'll bet! Just staying on JUDDD and following the plan almost guarantees it, doesn't it. Have a wonderful day, and we'll all be looking forward to you seeing that weight again real soon. Keep up the good work.

I keep saying this too. Many have good success right off the bat, and a whole lot more seem to have a lot of fluctuations and little real weight loss for awhile when they first start, but with a few adjustments, almost everyone seems to be able to make JUDDD work for them.

I guess part of the trick is to keep it up and ask for help if you're stuck and need some suggestions. LOL

You are really going to town with your weight loss these days. Glad you made it work for you, even on vacation, and are able to enjoy a few of the foods we usually don't get to eat during weight loss.

The more successes we get to read like this, the more motivation for all of us! Thanks for posting!
