Thought I'd jump in on a couple of your questions tonight and maybe I'll get around to more later, or not.

Is [success] measured in number of pounds lost or in the speed of weight lost? Is it in health issues that aren't bothersome anymore or a metabolism that is running faster now than it has in years.. or ever?

At first, I was just thrilled silly when I came to JUDDD from vLC and lost actual pounds! I was losing so slow on LC, and at the end it was taking me about 1 month to lose 1 pound. I came to JUDDD not expecting (but yet hoping) to lose the last 5#, but had always heard how hard those last 5# were to shed. So I wasn't expecting too much too soon, but again, hoping.... hoping....

So imagine my surprise and delight when the weight FLEW off me! I dropped those 5# so fast, I couldn't believe it. And I've continued to slowly lose in maintenance without trying.

Yes on the speedy metabolism too! JUDDD let me see the old metabolism I used to have, where I could lose weight "just by thinking about it", hehe. I was worried when I was on LC that my metabolism was busted. The insulin resistance had got me but good this time, I thought. But NOT so... because JUDDD waved its magic wand over that issue for me And though I struggled at first with DDs, I kept at it, and before I knew it I was maintaining and doing FREE DAYS, and have never had to go back to counting calories again! Other than the "few" we get on DDs which are so easy to count anyway, lol. So happy, so happy!
This gave me Goosebumps as well as tears of joy! I am so moved by your words here i just cant explain .... Dang it.. now i cant see... trhu the dang water welling up.. thank you thank you!!

This. It's hard to remember all the variables as to why each of us lose faster or slower than others. Sometimes, I've had to not pay attention to others' losses or I'll end up comparing myself with them, give up and move on to try something else. I get angry at my body for being so dang slow to lose and wonder what the heck I'm doing so wrong that I can't have the success others are having.

Excellent post, SoHappy, and should be a sticky.

Plus, remember that you just started. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to get going. I didn't track my weights for the first few months, but I know that I stalled for two weeks in there somewhere. I did weigh once a week though...need to find those numbers because I'm interested now... Anyway, point is, sometimes, you just need to give it time and find your groove.

Yeah Yam-Yam, medium-small. I am experiencing another first: For almost three weeks my weight has been almost rockin' steady. A tenth of a pound up or down no matter what day it is. BUT, 2.5 inches gone from my hips, 2 inches from my waist, 1.5 from my thigh. This little giggling nomadic tribes of fat cells seem to be folding their tents and silently stealing away.

This is fine by me. Someday, the scale will notice.

Oh, all you newbies who have not yet gotten this message - If you have not already taken your measurements, grab a tape measure and do so now! I would be depressed as heck if I depended on the scale right now, but that lovely strand of fabric is keeping me very happy.

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

And, Kathy, really welcome home to JUDDD.

Defining success as finding a WOE that provides a home and a Way Of Life is such a blessing!

Success to me is finding a healthy way of life that I can stick to FOREVER and actually maintain all of my weight loss.
Success is going to bed and waking up and not being mad at myself for the way I ate.
Success is feeling I am eating the best way for my physical and emotional well-being
Success is making it to goal weight
Success is lots of energy
Success is reducing inflammation, decreasing blood pressure and cholesterol levels
Success would be preventing diabetes and Alzheimer's, cancer, stroke, and heart attack
Success is a WOE that lets me live a normal life eating socially with others and having foods I love to eat.
Success would be not fearing going to the doctor because of the “you need to lose weight” lecture
Success would be some admiring glances from the opposite sex again
Success would be no longer obsessing about dieting
Success would be a good relationship with food. None of this love-hate crap. No binging. Just a good healthy relationship!

YES, YES, and YES!!!

The bolded ones really stuck out to me. I've lost weight a million times, but to be able to maintain? That's the part that really scares me. I've obviously never have been able to do that successfully. I also would love to be able to "eat normally" while maintaining.
