So how does a MD work?

Ok heres the problem I am debating. Weeks ago, I got my daughter, son and I tickets to go see The Hunger Games premier. Seriously daughter has been crazed over this since she first picked up the book back in 2005. She has convinced my son and I to read the series and just now talked my hubby into it too!

Anyways, weeks ago when I bought the tickets, I promised we would make a total night of it. We would dress up like the people in the books/movie, go out to eat, get a big ole' tub of popcorn and slushies, and stand in line for 2 hours hoping to get a decent seat (they have 3 showings sold out, and 1 almost sold out, so gonna be crazy busy with people!!!). And being the loving mom I am, still go to work the next day knowing I will only get like 2-3 hours of sleep and work 10 hours!!!

Anyways, tomorrow is my DD. I know I can go the whole day without eating. But once we go to the resturant, there isnt much I really truely like other than a swiss burger. We are going to steak and shake because they love that place. I can take a salad instead of fries, and remove the bun if I want to save calories and so on so forth, but from what I can see on the website of calories it still gonna be 700 alone for the burger, after I remove the bun! I could always get a BLT if it comes to it but thats still 500+ calories. Uggh!!

I dont want to take them and sit there with water, they hate that, yes I have done that before!!

I was thinking if I knew how a MD day went that might help with this. Do you have a certain amount of calories you can have, do you go back to a UD the next day or do you do another DD?

I can skip the popcorn, I actually bought me a bag of snap pea's from walmart and I love sitting and snacking on them. I do that during softball games too!!

Anyways, if some one can explain that for me, it would be really awesome of you!! I have been doing so well sticking to my UD's and DD's that I dont want to mess it up! I am already not gonna be able to walk/jog tomorrow. We will have to leave like ASAP when I get home from work to be able to do all this, so if I mess up eating, I can just see the inches I lost warping back on!!!

I am really excited to see this movie, I am dressing as Effie Trinket!!! Pink hair and pink makeup and everything!!! I think I am more excited over doing this with my TEENS! They have reached that age where I am to embarrassing to be around, so we dont do a whole lot together like we used too!

I'm sure the very knowledgeable among us will weigh in on the MD - I believe there is an order to it and I'm so new at getting back to JUDDD I don't want to steer you wrong.

I just have to say I LOVE that you are going as Effie!! Absolutely fabulous!

I am finishing up the third book now and just can't wait to see the movie. I'm not one for huge movie crowds but I will be seeing it this weekend.

I saw a someecard on Facebook today that said:

If I'm excited about The Hunger Games, does that mean I'm from the Capitol?



Have fun!!

MDs, while not ideal, are sometimes necessary. The ideal order would be DD, MD, UD, so you're going into your next DD well-fueled. I would suggest making today a MD if you're able to, so you can fully enjoy tomorrow with your family.

MD is the average of UD and DD calories. So add together your two numbers, then divide by 2. That's your MD number.

HTH.

Ellgee- I loved Effie and Haymitch but I dont really thing I can pull Haymitch off!!! I will have to post pictures!!! I even bought the fake eyelashes!!!!

KeirasMom- Ok I think I will just stick with my DD and just order a side salad and cottage cheese! It would just be better! I could actually pull off a MD day today from what you said, I am only at 1100 cals and still have to figure out 700 more before I go to bed! I will prob be happier with the salad and cottage cheese. I really am not a fan of steak and shake! I do love thier shakes but I realllly dont want to do that tomorrow or I will pee 10 times during the movie! I could always throw in a soup too! I am looking at the calorie site and I think if I order what I said I might end up about 100 over my 500. But honestly I have been around 500-600 since starting JUDDD, and have been slowly working my way down to below 500. Well yesterday I did a total fast. I found yesterday, I can go without food, but once it hits my mouth I just want more and more!

I know!! I am throwing it around in my head at the moment!

I am so worried one little thing like this will make a slip that gets bigger and bigger. You know that carb creep with Atkins! I so want JUDDD to work for me, and I.....well I am just scared......to screw up!

Hon, you are NOT going to screw up. Number One.. we won't let it happen, and Number Two.. neither will you. In fact, there is almost no way to screw this up unless you really go overboard on your calories, and that takes more than just a time or two.

This is so, so different than *that carb creep with Atkins*, but I know what you mean.

And more than anything else, this will actually be something to cement you even more firmly to your JUDDD way of enjoying life, because it will give you a gift. That of seeing how beautifully we can shift the days of our futures to include all the lovely opportunities with families and friends that add so much of the joy to our living.

I say, go for it. And enjoy. I know you'll just continue your normal JUDDD rotation as though nothing had happened.

Ty SoHappy and everyone.

I did decided to leave today as a MD and allow tomorrow as my UD! I guess I am so "trained" to atkins after all these years! I forgot that JUDDD is like day and night to it!!

And like I said I am so happy with all this! I love not having to plan my whole day around carbs. Calories are much easier for me!! Secret: I was a bit of a calorie freak in my teens, I knew the count of almost everything, I counted religiously, exercised like a freak if I went over by 10!!! I remember my hubby (boyfriend at the time) getting so mad when he realized I went from a healthy 110 lbs to 87 lbs!!! Bones sticking out everywhere. I did look bad, didnt realize til we got our prom pictures back at the time and I didnt reconize myself! Thats another reason I love JUDDD so much, I dont feel like I can slip back to that! I have a plan to follow!!! But I do put to much pressure on myself to make this work for health reasons! If I can make this work I can keep female parts, I am not ready for all that, not yet anyways!

Pat is so right! And remember this WOE is about "progression NOT perfection!"

You can relax with your family and just enjoy the day. Dang! It sounds like so much fun! I wish I was going with you! You HAVE to get a picture of you with the pink hair and post it here for us or at least post it on your profile page. You will be soooooo cute!

Seriously, though, having a MD today works out perfectly. You will have your UD tomorrow and then right back to a DD and you are into your rotation again.

Then you will be a believer that this is a plan for life and not just some kind of quick fix. Even if you have some movie popcorn and the scale is up a bit the next day, it will only be water. And it will come back off with your normal DD rotations.

Because of the magic gene, you will still be burning and blocking fat!! How cool is that!

ENJOY that whole time with your family, Katie, including yummy food with them. Like Pat said, we won't let anything bad happen to you JUDDD's got your back here. We got your back. We want you to do something that will create wonderful memories and mean much more to you at that moment and in years to come, than one day's mere calories could ever mean.

And yes, we want pics!

OMG I will post pics!!! It wont be totally pink!! Well kinda, I do dye my hair a black/purplish color!!! But I bought a pink mascara type wand to put pink stripes in!!! I was gonna get the temporary pink, but I wont have time to wash it out before I go to work the next day!!

I put my eyelashes on to show my daughter. She was freaking out about how cool they were. I got the extra long with multi colored jewels on the ends! I got baby blue and bright pink eyeshadow. Oh and white to make me pale as I can. The pink is for my lips and the blue is for my eyes. My daughter found a big green flower for my hair. You should search Effie Trinket and take a look at her lol!!! Its gonna be great!!! My daughter is dressing like Katniss. We found gold eyeliner to draw flames on her cheeks cause Katniss is the "girl on fire". And my son.....well he said he doesnt know us!!

We just made our own t-shirts with the iron on stuff from walmart. We found our own pictures to use for the shirts, so they will be different than everyone elses. I am so very excited for this!!!!!

I know I could have the popcorn, but I used to work at a drive in for a while, and well the movie popcorn isnt same after you spent weekend over weekend snacking on it your whole shift!!! The kids love it though so they want the big tub they said lol!!! But dinner with the kids will be fun, if not embarrassing being all dressed up sitting there!!! lol!!!!

Thank you everyone for being so supportive!!! I love that you all "got my back!!"

<---------

Only picture I could upload of me as Effie. Ok didnt go all fancy but I did have pink and blue stripes in my hair and that ugly green flower. My hair is usually straight and in a pony tail most of the time, but I fluffed it up for the night lol!!! And I had a shirt of Effie and I was holding a piece of paper that said Primrose Everdeen. I had on fake eyelashes with diamonds on the end, and I even had the "capitol's" gold eyeliner, but you cant see it so well! I actually had alot of people want pictures with me that night!!! I was worried that no one else would dress up.......but let me tell you.....there was tons of people dressed up!!!!!!!!

We did have a blast thought. I did really good all day with JUDDD. I was gonna just keep to a DD after all because I just wasnt hungry. We didnt get to go to steak and shake cause daughters softball practice ran over by an hour. So I made frozen pizza and had a slice. We got to the theater a 7pm! We were still like 10th in line, but we got the seats we wanted!!! But anyways it was like 10pm and we have like 2 more hours til the movie started and I was starved, so I broke down and had nacho and cheese. I just ran longer the next day!!! lol!!!!!!!!!

Fun times fun times!!!
