WOE: Maintaining on Juddd
Start Date: Made Goal on 23/10/2011 - Stats updated daily
Thanks so much for all the opinions, everyone! I have done a lot of thinking over the last few days, and have decided that 9-1/2 stone is my ideal weight.
I would like to see a lower number...but I think that is more a refection of todays expectations of women..the pressure to be light and delicate...to reach some mythical "ideal" than any real belief that a lower weight would improve my health or looks.
I am going back to my weight loss numbers of 1800/550, for a week or 2, with the plan to lose 2lbs...not much, but if I can maintain at 9 -5, I feel I wont have that panic when I get days I go higher.

As to my ED ( I have been on/of bulimic since 18...my way of coping with a mentally abusive step-father)....it is still part of me...but as I have not purged for 10 months now (since starting lcf) I am much more at peace.

For me, i think, Juddd contains my ED...I get the control, through strict counted DD's, and the chance to eat freely on my UD/FD's...where as before I would go for months starving myself...leading to binge/purge....leading to just eating freely....leading to more starving...a very unhealthy cycle.

I have gradually accepted that I am never going to have a completely "normal" relationship with food....or with my body.

But with Juddd I feel i can cope, and maintain a normal weight,without the starve, binge, purge, starve cycle....and perhaps even get additional health benefits....which is more than I could ever have hoped for a year ago.

This forum has literally been a life saver for me....ED's and bulimia can be deadly addictions....and I am very grateful!

hugs
Jo

I wish I could make my little Smilie Guy grab on and hold for a moment before letting go.

But since he's just a hugger, I'll settle for that.

I'm so happy to hear in your time at LCF and JUDDD you have come this wonderfully far into the world of *regular person*. I really do think that the longer you do JUDDD, the longer you exert the control over your diet that is a normal DD - at whatever calorie level that is for you - while allowing yourself the freedom of your Free/Up Days, the more you will be returned to the center of a normal relationship with food and eating. But that's, of course, a matter of time passing.

Hope you're having a great evening over there. We have our first snow in Iowa, USA, and just came in from shoveling. Neighbor wants us to use her snow blower machine, but we want to shovel by hand! And now I'm fixing mugs of hot chocolate with whipped cream on top. Wish you were here!

thanks for the hugs guys...(and for excepting me...as I am...I sometimes feel like a bit of a weirdo!)....I can almost feel them! Enjoy your hot choc n cream, Pat...it makes snow shoveling worthwhile! (I am Scottish, and we have a LOT of snow!)

warm hugs from frosty South Shields

Sending you big hugs jo. We have a lot in common. Juddd is also really helping me to have normal relationship with food. It will never be totally normal. I know that. It's like being a alcoholic. We will always have an eating disorder but if we can get control over it instead of it controlling us it makes life so much happier and healthier. I haven't had any ED thoughts since really fully starting juddd and its just amazing. We are the same and can really use each other for support. You really are my juddd hero.

I don't think there is such a thing as a 'normal' relationship with food. We each have to create our own 'normal'.

And you, my dear skinny-all-over, are doing a wonderful job of it. When, because of water or TOM or a special occasion, you don't like what you see on the scale there is no need to panic - panic is just ancient history rising out of habit, you have moved yourself beyond that. Smile (I mean it, pull those facial muscles into a grin) and say, "Whoops - looks like my FDs are gonna be UDs for a round or two". Then do it. NBD Darling. YOU have complete control.

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

This is truly wonderful! I still get the thoughts, but so much less...and no bulimia..which is such a relief, as it made me so ashamed.
I always look out for your posts, you are so open and honest, and to have someone like you on here makes me feel less alone...and as you know, an ED can be very isolating. I am so glad we have each other for support!

I need to read this at least once a day...till it finally sinks in! Thankyou!
