I always get sick when I start a diet or when I start working out. Take some vitamin C and some D, but I'd at least get out and walk! Keep up the momentum! It helps. For your situation, I might do like half lap jog, half lap faster jog/run, half lap walk, etc. I like to make a game out of running outside...like, "if I can just make it to that tree, then I can walk." I'm usually dying, but once I get to the tree, I can keep going because I don't "have" to. It makes the time go quicker.

Thanks!!! I finally found something I can stick with!!! Like I said in one of my first posts. This is normally how I ate before JUDDD just wayyyyy high in calories!!! So this is coming really easy for me!!!!

I tell you my doc light the fire under my butt, so since I am the only one who can put it out, I outta just do it!!

Besides, I realized. I am 37 years old, my daughter is 15, my son is 14. They will be going off to college before I know it and well I dont plan to spend my weekends at home. So I gotta work on getting my hot bod back, so my hubby can show me off!!! lol!!!!

Hi Tanya! How's it going? I am trying to get back into running/jogging myself and its been hard. I think my extra weight is really making it hard for me. I am hoping to lose a little bit before I put the extra stress on my joints again. I am so lazy lately - I tell myself to do it and then, eh...I find something else that "has" to be done. Grumble grumble. I think the truth is its just so uncomfortable for me now with this extra weight that I hate it now. :-( Also I am too big for all my cute running clothes and that just depresses me when I try to get dressed for a jog. I also feel so bad that I don't want to be outside where people can see me in all my glory. UGH. I hope if I can drop off this newly gained weight from December and January that I will feel confident enough to venture outside and get me some jogging sunshine! I love that the weather is warmer now and I am sad I am not outside in it. I am too hard on myself I think. Still my shins and knees feel the extra weight and I really hate my treadmill now because I feel like it makes so much noise under my feet now. I am just uber sensitive about it I think. Good thing I am being so good on JUDDD and the weight is dropping. I am going to try the idea above from DD80 about the 5 min jog/3 min walk as that is about what I was doing last week before the lazy bug bit me again. Its been since the 15th since I have exercised. I think losing weight will pull me out of this funk I am in with exercise. I miss feeling light and fast while running...if I ever did feel that way...I am 5ft10in tall so I don't feel small - ever...well except when I was 23 and 121lbs (TOO SKINNY)! Ironically I didn't jog then. I wish I had.

Buttercup, I so had those same feelings! I didnt want my neighbors to watch me running and thinking "omg she is so fat, look at that fat jiggle". But I seriously had a talk with myself in the mirror one day after my shower. I decided I not only wanted to do this for me, I needed to do this for me!

I used to run all the time when I was younger. I would run up to six miles a day! I was 5'2" and 87lbs at my lowest back in my teens/early twenties. When I got pregnant with my daughter, I had complications. Doc said no more running, I was put on bed rest. Then right after she was born, my son was born. They are 10 months apart. I didnt get back into running or any exercise. I spent my life a that point taking care of kids, hubby, and working. My kids are older now. They can do all this stuff for themselves to a point now. So I am making it a point to do this for me!!

I have been running everyday since 3/15/12, with the exception of a thursday in there. My knees have screamed and called me bad things. I just take a advil and ignore them. The pain is fading. Its not like it was! What I thought about people thinking things about isnt so. My neighbor actually said he seen me running and think its great, not something he would do, but he said it seems like I am having fun! Which I am, I love blasting my headphones and going, its just like when I was 18 again. I guess I was singing quite loud the one day and him and his wife were cracking up over it. But honestly I do the same thing when I cut grass too. They thought thats what I was doing at first but they never heard the mower start lol!!!

I tell you thought. I am having a blast with it!! I enjoy the energy and confidence it is giving me again. My hubby even likes it at night (hahaha but true!). I even put my needs before everyone elses the other night and felt good about it!! I came home from work, and usually I go right to making dinner. But it looked like it was gonna storm. So I went and ran first. Made them wait. Thought hubby was gonna be mad. But he said he was proud of me and my sudden commitment he has seen with this new eating plan. He said anytime I would say I was gonna do Atkins again. He would just nod, but know I wouldnt stick with it longer than a week. But this JUDDD thing is different and he loves how happy I have been, and how I am sticking to it!

If your worried about running. Maybe look into those walk at home DVD's. Get your knees ready to do this until your comfortable to go outside and do it! Baby steps are sometimes easier than fully diving in in some cases!!! I didnt start running right away. I actually waited til the clocks changed. It was always dark as all when I would get home from work. I started doing my daughters Wii game Just dance at first. Then when the clocks changes I went out jogging and gave it my all! Before I made the switch to JUDDD I was back at atkins, so I had lost 10lbs with that and dancing in my living room for a month or so prior! I actually was at a 17lb loss, but I had a d&c and recovery in the mix and a few days of eating what was there, because I was so sore. I had a reaction to the muscle relaxant given and it took 3 days for the effect to go away. And in 3 days I put back on 7lbs, mostly water, but still dissappointing!!

Keep us informed on how you do!! Sounds like your having fun with your success with JUDDD so far and I want to say Congrats for that!!!!

Oh and I never worried about cute exercise clothes, lord the neighbors get to see me in what ever I put on lol!! I have sweats that are a size 3x cause I love big baggie sweats to lay around the house in. I only wear a large. They were falling and my bum was hanging out. I would hike them up and go on. Oh well!!! Better than the time I was cutting grass in my swim top, to get my tan on once. And I didnt realize when leaning over the wheel to get it unstuck on a small hill, my boob fell out and I kept cutting grass. My neighbor watched for a while and I couldnt figure out why he was staring til I heard my daughter yelling " mom your boob!" I looked down and was like well looky here!! Hahahaahh! I have no shame!!!

Sorry this is such a late comment--but I haven't been online for a week or so and just came upon this today.
I just HAD to comment on, just like you, I was (and am) SO excited to be able to eat fruit again!! On my DDs, I eat lots of veggies and fruit. I think I get more veggies in now than when I was LCing for ten years.
Great thread! KUTGW!!

So today was good......then went so very bad..........

Todays an UD. I started out great had about 300 cals left to get in for the day. Then bammmmmm, extreme hunger set in. I mean stomache growling and twisting hungry. I ended up over my 1800 and felt bad. But an hour later I was still starving. I tried water and tea, but nope my body wanted FOOD. So I caved and made something else, way over my cals for the day.

I had been very careful today about stress eating with my dad sick and all. But like I said it was for real hunger. I know I would get days like that on Atkins and then I would end up with a huge whooooosh, so I was wondering if that happens to others on JUDDD?

I figure if I was that hungry, body needed the fuel. I should be ok! I was just sitting here thinking how bad I feel cause I didnt run today. First time in over a week. But my knee is hurting so bad, that I actually had to take a left over vicodin from my tooth surgery so that I could just grocery shop! I was running the back yard and it had rained and I slipped and caught myself but tweaked my knee really good! I told myself I would take today and sunday off from running and give my knee a chance to heal a bit. But monday even if its just walking back at it.

I went clothes shopping today too. Tomorrow is my sisters bridal shower, and I was looking for something nice to wear. I tried on a million outfits, hated how I looked and decided its just family, jeans and a nicer sweater will just do! I have to go back out and get a dress for the wedding in a week or two. I have to get something. Its quite a formal affair. I just hope I can find something!!

I guess I just had a bad day all the way around.....it happens....tomorrows another day..........

Todays an UD. I started out great had about 300 cals left to get in for the day. Then bammmmmm, extreme hunger set in. I mean stomache growling and twisting hungry. I ended up over my 1800 and felt bad. But an hour later I was still starving. I tried water and tea, but nope my body wanted FOOD. So I caved and made something else, way over my cals for the day.

I had been very careful today about stress eating with my dad sick and all. But like I said it was for real hunger. I know I would get days like that on Atkins and then I would end up with a huge whooooosh, so I was wondering if that happens to others on JUDDD?

I figure if I was that hungry, body needed the fuel. I should be ok! I was just sitting here thinking how bad I feel cause I didnt run today. First time in over a week. But my knee is hurting so bad, that I actually had to take a left over vicodin from my tooth surgery so that I could just grocery shop!

Definitely give yourself some TLC and a break, Katie. You're going through a lot of stress with your Dad and the family events, knee injury, etc. Sometimes we just need extra nourishment and our body lets us know this by making us more hungry than usual. So don't worry if you're a little up on the scale tomorrow. It could be from cortisol due to stress, or other hormones, the vicodin, etc. but it won't affect your overall loss in days and weeks to come.

And who knows but you may get a whoosh. Just take it easy on yourself and do the best you can.

I understand completely. I just went through a major, major scare with my own father who's 67. It took everything out of me. I mean, I held up for almost a week, and then I came crashing down inside clear to the very bottom of my being. It was the most stress I've felt in a long time, maybe all time.

We all survived, and now he is recovering very well for what he endured. And I slowly but surely raised back up to the mental, emotional and physical peak I was on before it all happened, which was very reassuring. I actually attribute some of my bounce-back to JUDDD, since it helps with stress tolerance.

Just do the best you can during this time, and don't let your woe add any stress to your life now. This woe has to work around your life. That's all there is to it. So when you come out on the other side, you can just pick up where you left off and keep going. Big for you and your family, Katie!!!
