Times they are a changing!
 
Normally, as soon as I come to LCF every day, I would head straight to the PG to read new posts. Now that I've started JUDDDing, I come straight in here first to read all the new threads. :)

Dottie 01-11-2012 08:00 AM

lol me, too :D The upbeat attitude really gets me psyched for the day!

SoHappy 01-11-2012 08:03 AM

I try to stop by the computer at least every hour to catch up on posts, and then continue on with my day. Laundry load done and now folding clothes. Bedroom done and guest bedroom ready for guests this weekend.

But.. gotta' keep stopping by the JUDDD forum every hour! :laugh:

I agree with you there, plus.. I think it keeps us all motivated, and we can continually be comparing our choices with what is working for others, which helps us fine tune our calorie numbers if needed, and also fine tune our DD food choices if we're having trouble with hunger or get some new ideas for DD foods for our meals. Very motivating around here!

Knittering 01-11-2012 08:25 AM

Same here.
I, um, like you guys better. :love:

When I was LCg, I always checked the lobby first thing, but since JUDDD, this is my first stop, and sometimes I don't make it over to the lobby, lol.

KeirasMom 01-11-2012 08:57 AM

I rarely make it to the lobby anymore, especially now that I'm not watching carbs. Plus, it's so much fun in here. :p

MintQ8 01-11-2012 09:00 AM

Me too - well, my User Control Panel. There's one other thread elsewhere that I am on a lot - but otherwise it's here!! And occasionally the PG

SillverOrchid 01-11-2012 09:23 AM

Hey!! I was just thinking the same thing before I even signed in.. I bypassed the PG and came straight here.. even before I decided to JUDDD I would lurk and think WOW this is a nice place to be!!:love:

katecat 01-11-2012 10:02 AM

Here first now, then the PG.......haven't been on the Main Board for years :o

ouizoid 01-11-2012 10:12 AM

I always click New Posts up at the top--all the new JUDDD posts show up, but all the others as well, and sometimes there is something of interest--

SillverOrchid 01-11-2012 10:15 AM

I still hit the PG after JUDDD board :D

Alcestis 01-11-2012 10:38 AM

I only have time to come here now, with all the activity in the past few weeks!

Yep, me too.

Beeb 01-11-2012 03:27 PM

I feel strange on the ML or Recipe Help and Suggestions (were my 2 favs to hit first thing) since I started being a JUDDD BUDDD. I don't eat LC, per say, anymore so my recipes are not LC friendly. If I post it's LC I think I may get flamed or told it's not LC so they can't eat it. :dunno:

I actually find it sad on the ML when I'm reading how some are struggling to stay LC or how they "cheated" and feel so guilty, how it's not working anymore, how they are now thinking just Meat/Eggs to break a stall, they are missing favorite foods, they are tired of eating just this or that, their fear that eating higher fat is doing damage to them, and the list/threads go on and on.

I am SO happy with this WOE that I don't want to be sad and sometimes I find myself getting so frustrated for them and wanting to just tell everyone over there to "COME TO THE DARK SIDE" (JUDDD) and just enjoy food AND life again!! :dunno::cry:

Beeb, keep posting over there! I can guarantee that your WOE line is catching people's attention. It certainly caught mine and I don't even like cake!

I suppose one could think of it as "rescuing" those who are drowning in a sea of LC depression by keeping a current "Come to the JUDDD side of life" thread to entice them. Just a thought...:dunno:

pjsam1156 01-11-2012 04:13 PM

I NEVER hit the regular LC boards as much as I check in here--and I did LC for 10 years!:)
I check in here EVERY day and read as much as I can because of the great support and ideas!:love: I don't even go to the LC boards any more!:D

SoHappy 01-11-2012 04:40 PM

I don't see enough success over there to motivate me as much as this JUDDD forum does, where most are reporting weight loss every week, and sometimes that loss is a pretty large chunk even! Only dieting every other day.

And, reporting the fine meals they are enjoying on their UDs, the parties and meals out with friends, Birthday parties and celebrations.....

I know what you mean, Beeb, but everybody just decides how they want to lose weight (or hope to) and what diet plan they want to follow.

I do expect more would do JUDDD if they believed that the Down Days become pretty easy to do, and also if they really understood that they can remain very low carb and still do the JUDDD plan.

I just think a lot of folks don't know much about it, but fear the little they have heard about it.

dasiey 01-11-2012 05:06 PM

me to I don't always post but I love
reading what you all are up to.

Tyl 01-11-2012 05:10 PM

lol i still check in the pg for some good drama and they get some of the BEST recipes (that i can actually eat now), but i lurk on these JUDDD threads daily

itsmeshelly01 01-11-2012 06:32 PM

I am the same way and was thinking the same thing the other day. I dont even go there anymore hardly at all. It seems if i do it starts messing with my head now you know? Im trying to really make JUDDD work for me and the bashing of carbs starts getting to me...lol
I sometimes go over there and look to see if there is something interesting but usually most of my time is spent here with you lovely wonderful ladies. This board is so motivating and everyone is nice and helpful and just cheery!!!!
It makes me smile!!!

2BoysMom 01-12-2012 02:25 PM

I do the exact same thing - I thought I was the only one! I head straight here....read through anything new....then over to The Playground, then right back here to camp out. Can't tell you the last time I was in the ML.

sophiethecat 01-12-2012 03:10 PM

I've been looking for the PG, but can't find it in my drop-down menu :dunno:

Have you ever been able to get into the Playground? You now qualify.

If you have been there previously, perhaps you've accidentally been turned Off.

If you've never been there, perhaps you just never got turned On.

Let Dottie know. She can Make it Happen.

Dottie 01-12-2012 04:38 PM

I'm checking :)

I will have to let her know, because I don't have access to it. Wow, a whole 'nuther world at LCF that I have yet to discover, lol. As if I don't spend ENOUGH time on here. :hyst:
