UD for me today, and I am taking it by the horns, instead of IT taking ME and running off with me. One of the problems I've had with UD's is that I don't have easy calorie counts for some of the things I eat (<==lousy excuse, I know) :o.

So, uncooked oats this morning with banana, peanut butter and chocolate mixed in (not a whole lot of any of them). For lunch, I have a chicken/cream cheese dish I made in the crockpot. Snack, some chocolate almond milk/coffee made into a frappy-dappy and served in a Starbux glass :lol:

When I get home, I am going to have one of those popcorn 100-calorie bags, but I'm going to add some butter to it...and then some Carbmaster yogurt. That puts me with 255 calories to go....so I'll have some hamburger/cabbage dish. And then it'll be time to go to bed. And THIS time I'll be happy, instead of wondering what happened! :stars:

Bonnie 02-08-2012 06:25 AM

DD - I have had three way under UDs in a row so I might make this a MD. dh is in the hospital and that will give me some leeway if I need to eat lunch in the cafeteria.

B: Black coffee
L: ??
D: ???

KeirasMom 02-08-2012 06:31 AM

DD and I have a company function after work, plus lunch is being catered. Thankfully, I have willpower and JUDDD.

B: Coffee, black
S: Fage 0% if needed.
L: Shiritaki and veggies
Cocktail hour: I may have a glass of wine
Dinner: My boss is cooking at her house and is making chicken. She's so great, she's offered to make mine with no sauce, so I'll have a piece of chicken and nibbles of whatever else is there. Probably another glass of wine with dinner.

I figured out the upper range of WLM for me (35%) at 784, so I think it'll work out.

adillenal 02-08-2012 07:20 AM

UD
B - 2ggs cooked in coconut oil, 1 slice Ezekial toast with SF apricot preserves, coffee with HWC
L - Dannon fullfat yogurt with an apple and a banana plus a slice of cake from yesterday's birthday celebration at work.
D - soup

KathyL 02-08-2012 07:23 AM

DD for me

Breakfast & Lunch will be protein shakes
For dinner I am going to try the cabbage recipe you all keep talking about, with laughing cow cheese and shrimp

DDs, so far, have been easy for me to keep at 400.

vilanteira 02-08-2012 08:53 AM

UD here.

B: coffee, one soft-boiled egg, 2 slices bacon
L: smaller portion of ground beef chili veggie casserole
D: going out for dbf's birthday dinner

Could be anywhere from 1400-2000 total since dinner is a tasting menu that will have way too many small portions of things I can't calculate accurately.

kaysol 02-08-2012 09:00 AM

DD today and it need to be a good one. The weekend was sort of sketchy due to Bday party for dd and superbowl - tried doing more of a MUDD version but couldnt make the times right...monday started out dd and turned into medium- was so starving after the weekend of too much eating. UD yesterday and now trying to plan a good dd

B- coffee with cream (50 cals)
?
Lunch -1 1/2 cups cabbage 20 cals
5 shrimp 100 cals
Laughing cow - 35

dinner - chicken salad with lots of veggies
chicken 110 cals
veggies - not sure 50 cals?
ranch mixed with hot sauce - 50 cals

with this I am at 410 so that does not leave much for bkfast. maybe I will just skip it since it is 10:00 already or if I eat I can omit the shrimp from lunch. I know once I have a good dd it get easier on the next but the first one is so hard for me...chicken broth may come to my rescue today!

12:20 p.m.
-I couldn't decide what to have, so I had a Pure Protein bar to go with the last cup of coffee in the pot. The bar is a new flavor to me - strawberry shortcake. Blech! :sick: It was like eating a big, chewy cough drop. I will stick with the Chocolate Deluxe flavor from now on - it's the only one I like.

180/850 calories.

Dottie 02-08-2012 09:45 AM

Sophie I don't know why they can't get fruity flavors right lol, but when they're good, they're just "ok" and when they're bad :sick:

b_lou_who 02-08-2012 11:46 AM

DD (and I am down .2 pounds after yesterday's UD)

3oz pea pods with half cup cultured cottage cheese

2 caprese chicken sausages with yogurt/salsa dip and salad with acv

hubby and I both noticed yesterday the incredible appetite suppression of JUDDD after just a week, neither of us were particularly hungry and both ate very lightly in the morning and then skipped lunch accidentally. interesting!!

So true! And I didn't realize until I opened the package that it's smaller than the chocolate one too. Oh well, live and learn, I guess. :) I just hate that I went ahead and ate it anyway (hate wasting food, even if that may technically be too yucky to be called food! lol) I should have tossed it because it made me feel sick for a while PLUS I wouldn't have lost 180 of my DD calories over it. :doh:

mykidsteacher 02-08-2012 03:54 PM

UD--and I spent it out with my 14 yo DD. A lovely day.

b--2 eggs, 1 sausage, decaf black coffee
l--Applebees: 3 mozzarella cheese sticks, chicken bruschetta with broccoli instead of the potatoes it comes with.
s--chuck roast and green beans.

And based on my best calculations (since the applebee's nutrition info included the potatoes), I still have 200 cals left.

PaperHearts 02-08-2012 04:05 PM

Today is my first up day... the way it's gone so far, I think I can say I'm fully converted to JUDDD :laugh:

D: Coffee w/cream x3, 2 eggs with cheddar cheese and sour cream

L: 2 small vegan pancakes made with brown rice flour and apricot preserves

D: Corn pasta with mushroom tomato sauce, caesar salad.

Snacks: two pepperoni sticks and 6 hershey kisses.

Sounds like a great day!

KeirasMom 02-08-2012 04:08 PM

I'll be off work in an hour, rush home to get the kid showered and dressed for tonight's dinner with the boss.

I am allowing 784 calories today for my DD, as that's 35%. I've had 114 so far, so that leaves me with 670 for dinner and drinks. I can do some damage with 670 calories! I'm thinking a small piece of chicken, small amount of veggies, and plenty of wine or Fireball!

Beeb 02-08-2012 04:27 PM

DD and feeling yucky again!! I have been more sick this year than in the last 9 years!! :down::mad:

Oatmeal with WF maple syrup, brown sugar sub, cinnamon, almond milk
Garden Delites portabella mushroom and zucchini bake with 1.5 turkey breast and 2 tbs FF mozzarella cheese
Spicy rice cake soup with 1 sliced chicken sausage, 2 oz Korean rice cakes, napa cabbage, scallions, onions, garlic, ginger, vinegarise pepper paste, sugar sub
Coffee and tea with low fat half and half throughout the day.

Total for today: 516 calories

sophiethecat 02-08-2012 04:42 PM

Had an "emergency" change of plans to MUDDDg tonight due to extreme hunger and the most fan-tab-u-lous homemade stir fry I've ever made. Was up to 385 calories until about 6:45 p.m. when I had the stir-fry. I was saving up calories all day for this, had planned to just have a cup or so, but was so hungry when it was done that I ate and ate and ate.

I can't even begin to estimate the calories. It was mostly veggies with a little bit of beef and pork, but it was all fried in coconut oil and there was some rice and lo mein noodles involved.

I've been doing fine on DDs lately, so I think the extreme hunger today is hormonal. Almost that time again. I just know it's hormonal when I eat the things that usually keep me nicely full for at least a few hours if not 4 or more, and yet I'm unrealistically very hungry again soon after. It could also be the large number of carbs I had yesterday on my FD - it was more carbs than is typical for me, but usually that kind of carb-induced hunger I can manage.

Hormonal is another beast entirely.

Rawwrr.

Could be anywhere from 1400-2000 total since dinner is a tasting menu that will have way too many small portions of things I can't calculate accurately.

Way too much sugar and carbs consumed during dinner, but it was so worth it! :yummy: I haven't even seen or heard of most of these foods we had. It was a real adventure! Fully expecting a couple pounds gain tomorrow at least, but I'm ok. It'll go down again.
