Could it be Fate?
 
I just came across JUDDD yesterday and jumped in right away. Yesterday being UD and today DD. I have about 65 pounds to lose. Here is the fate part...

- I found this WOE - and am excited to see results as you all have.

- Got a call from my cousin who wants me to go with her to Napa Valley, CA for a wedding of someone she knows the end of June. Plane tickets free.

Of course, I talked my husband into letting me go and I am excited to. However, I want to look good in CA and in such a fancy place. (for a country bumpkin like me).

My cousin is absolutely beautiful and has always been very thin, and I want to look good with her. She has always loved me no matter what, being cousins but more like sisters.

So this plan, the trip.. all came together in one day..

Yay, Carla! :welcome: to JUDDD!!

I think you'll find that JUDDD is a very doable way to eat that can fit right into your life. The best part of this plan for me is knowing that the weight is coming off and I'm only *dieting* every other day!

Read lots and ask lots of questions...you've found a wonderful support group here!!

Wow! What an awesome opportunity... and a fantastic motivational incentive! Yes I would say that is Fate!

:welcome: to JUDDD! :shake: Although I'm still trying to get used to what works for me, but I've found this WOE very amenable. I'm excited to hear about your journey! :)

:welcome: to JUDDD, Carla! :shake: :hugs: Your upcoming trip sounds wonderful, and I'm sure you will not only look good, but feel good too since you'll have been JUDDDg for quite some time by then! :high5:

Napa Valley is gorgeous! What a magical opportunity!

:welcome: to the dark side!

I think we can assume Fate is smiling on you.

HOW NICE!
 
Having a goal is great.
YOU GO GIRL! FUN

Yes it is a great opportunity, I have never been to California. I would love to be able to wear a nice summer dress to the wedding. I haven't wore a dress in over 6 years.

I haven't felt this energized and excited for a long time and I feel JUDDD and all your support is why.

THANKS!!!

Just reading your post is making me excited, too! You're going to love JUDDD and it'll get you where you want to go. That said, do not let any crazy scale bounces scare you away. It happens to all of us, but your trend will be downward. We're here for you!

:welcome: to JUDDD! It IS an amazing WOE and I'm sure you are going to do wonderful on it!

I am also hoping you decide to do this for you too, as a lifetime WOE, and not just for your cousin's wedding, and to look good for HER. Look forward to looking good and feeling good for YOU, for the rest of your life, and half the battle is won!! :hugs:

Here are so great links to read that I hope will help in your JUDDD weight loss journey. Looking forward to seeing you post often about your continued success!! :high5:

Linda, I am doing this for me for sure more than for just an occasion. I have high BP, high cholesterol. More than that, I finally want to get to goal and be more healthy. I was once 297, was down to 168 then now back up to 214. I want energy and feel good about me. It's not her wedding, but a wedding of a child my cousin was a nanny for.


Laurie, I am excited, I think more for this WOL than the trip. Cuz if her husband decides to go with her then I will not be going. Which is ok with me, just excited for the prospect. I will not let the scale be my downfall. And feel free to remind me of that too :)


Thanks for the links I will look at those later at home.. guess I should work when I am at work..he he

I LIVE in California, but Napa is my all time favorite place. I love to do all the wine tastings and the fantastic restaurants there, and the pure beauty of the area!! What a great opportunity and great motivation!! Best wishes!

I'd like to go to Napa one day! My husband and I went to Lodi and REALLY enjoyed it. Great little town and amazing wineries. I'd also like to spend some time in Paso Robles one day. I love wine. :love:

Can I come? Huh, huh, can I? :laugh:
MIL lives in Cambria, and we live in Fresno, so we actually drive through Paso Robles and the area on the way to her house several times a year. DH isn't a wine drinker, so we never stop at any of the wineries, and I'd so love to!

Nice that you can lose before your trip, and keep losing or at least maintain while you are there with JUDDD! Start saving for vacation clothes budget, you will need it :)

carla70 02-28-2012 01:28 PM

Dawn, sure you can come. I not a big wine drinker but I will still have some and love trying new things. I am keeping fingers crossed that her husband doesn't want to go. Have heard many people say how beautiful it is there. My DH has been there twice and he said its beautiful.

I am really looking forward to losing and getting some nice summer clothes for trip. I also know JUDDD is very life friendly and I can do on trip and beyond.

How do you not stop at the wineries? Your husband should be your designated driver! ;):laugh:

Now I'm craving wine and it's a DD....boo.:cry:
