14 Weeks on JUDDD Update
14 weeks on JUDDD (Going between "MUDDD" and JUDDD + other IF).

-Off allergy meds
-clearer skin
-maintaining with ease 139 - 143# (this is below the goal weight I'd originally set for myself)

Had a doctor appt today.
-bp 98/62 (and similar #s last week)
-Temperature was 98.

Weight was 142.6, (with clothes on and after a large meal this afternoon.)

I go for blood work tomorrow so I will report the results when I get them on how things are looking on JUDDD, including a complete metabolic panel, lipid panel, an A1C and a C-Reactive Protein test for inflammation in the body. (tests I requested).

I also have orders to schedule an ultrasound on my gallbladder.

Well, just wanted to share my good news so far and hope it encourages others. Carry on. :)

Your health report is certainly looking great, Sophiethecat! I'll be looking forward to reading the results of your blood work shortly too. :up:

mykidsteacher 01-18-2012 08:42 PM

Sounds good. I'm excited to compare my blood work done today to my results from Aug (when I was 20 pounds heavier, and eating badly). Any changes will be due to paleo/primal, not JUDDD, but interesting nonetheless.

Can't wait to see your results.

Woo-Hoo, Sophie! I am celebrating with you!! YOU ROCK JUDDD:sing::sing:

I enjoy reading your posts.

Excellent news!!

sophiethecat 01-20-2012 07:46 AM

Thank you ALL! So much! :hugs: :heart: each of you! :hugs:

OK, I got the results of the blood work. She read it to me over the phone. I will pick up a hard copy of it next week.

Everything (metabolic panel, CBC, etc.) was normal. :up:

The A1C is not back yet. I guess they send those out to be done in batches. The C Reactive Protein (inflammation test) is not back yet either. She said to call Monday afternoon for those.

Here are the cholesterol results.

Cholesterol - 199
Triglycerides - 60
HDL (the good kind) - 69 (she said the hospital's normal range is 40 - 60)
LDL - 118 (she said the hosptial's normal range is 0 - 130)

Excellent, Sophie! It's nice to see some more evidence that this WOE is very healthy, as well as great for weight loss/maintenance. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Laurie. I wish I had some "before" numbers to compare, but the last time I had blood work was Fall of 2010 - a month or two before I started the big weight gain by sitting too much and eating cookies all the time, activating my insulin resistance. :(

I might ask for a copy of that blood work too so I can compare. After all, at the time I had it done I was not doing JUDDD and I wasn't doing LC (not doing it now either, just more of a moderate carb), just pretty much eating a regular diet, maybe a bit healthier than some though. Well, it would be interesting to compare. :)
