Yum - I think I'm going to come and spend my UD with you today, Alcestis! Had non-fat greek yogurt with granola for breakfast, lunch will be packed as I'm going to a lecture (whole wheat pita with chicken and mayo and a banana). Have to give dinner some thought - maybe a curry. Loving this flexibility after 8+ years of LC!

Alcestis 03-06-2012 05:17 AM

Jan, I'll head up to Boston - I love curry!! :D

KeirasMom 03-06-2012 05:24 AM

First ever MD

B: Mug brownie and 1 C 0% Greek yogurt
L: Guacamole turkey burger
D: Not sure yet, will have around 600 calories left

sophiethecat 03-06-2012 06:05 AM

I pretty much ate an UDs worth of calories last night between 5 and 10 p.m.

So I'm thinking about instead of continuing my FD today as I usually do on MUDDD, that I will do another DD until evening and then start FD again. I've done that before, it's sort of another type of IF where you're fasting or mostly fasting for a set number of hours and then your eating period starts again and you do this daily. Except I do it for maybe a couple days and then go on with the real rotation. Just another way I mix things up sometimes. I'll think about it.

Anyway, so far I'm having Irish B'fast mixed with green tea + raw honey.

darlingnikki 03-06-2012 06:06 AM

D: Pasta Ametriciana & some parmesan cheese

DD80 03-06-2012 06:36 AM

UD and I'm STARVING today. Yesterday was a very hungry DD, even with 700 or so cals. Down to 171.2 today though, which is a new low, so maybe I'm finally breaking my stall!

B: Leftover pizza, TJ's herb/garlic crust w/ tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, mozz, and goat cheese - ooh with homemade roasted red pepper/tomato sauce.
L: Leftover spaghetti with homemade vodka sauce (made w/ half/half) and mini meatballs
S: Cookies!
D: Not sure yet... Have some leftover loaded mashed potatoes, so I'll work those in.

Today is supposed to be an UD but after this morning's revolting weigh in I'm tempted to fast. BUT I fasted yesterday so I shouldn't do it again today. But that weigh in! I thought my scale was broken. :/

If I eat.....

Breakfast - steak and eggs
Lunch - caesar salad maybe
Dinner - chicken fajita

Hi Kathy, sorry the scales hurt you today! :console: They will most definitely go up and down on JUDDD.

There will be water gains and losses, particularly if there is sugar/carbs consumed, but it will go away again. Many of us found a type of equilibrium once our bodies adjusted to some carbs again after a strict LC woe.

I encourage you to eat today. It's supposed to be an UD, and you need to re-fuel. Your menu sounds great. Enjoy it.

The water will come off again. Fat will leave too, if you keep following the JUDDD rotation. You've probably heard this before - that fat cells loose their fat during WL but fill up with water as a type of place-holder - in case they get to refill with fat again soon. But when they don't, there is a release of water from the cells as they collapse. So at times when it looks like we are holding onto fat or even gaining, it's not necessarily what's going on - it's more to do with water.

Don't "punish" yourself - eat and nourish yourself today. :hugs:

Having a completely Free Day.

2 mugs of coffee with half & half

Panera's with my sister for a good visit over a mid-morning snack: so a roasted onion and poppy seed bagel with butter, and a frozen caramel espresso drink with whipped cream on the top. Delicious. Delightful. Something I never do, so a real treat! LOL

2 apples, pared and cut into sections, with 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese

Have no idea for supper, but heavy on the meat and vegetables! :laugh:
