New to JUDDD
 
I have been a lurker on this board for the past week or so and wanted to come out and introduce myself! A little about me - I went low carb back in 2002 and lost some weight, but of course it came back with some extras. In 2009, I lost about 30 lbs with a semi-low carb plan + lots of exercise and somehow all of those pounds found their way back as well (being a newlywed didn't help). In October 2011, I decided to get back on the LC train and have lost about 16 lbs but have been bouncing around the same number for too long. I work out pretty much every day (4 days strength training, 3 days cardio) which has helped with inches lost, but I'm ready for more!

I have tried to work IF into my plan since January and found that it really helped me mentally. Before IF, I would almost panic if I felt hungry and would grab something quick (and not always healthy) to eat just so that I wouldn't pass out. Well, turns out I can go pretty long without eating and be just fine!

After reading up on JUDDD and all of the wonderful support on this board, I decided to give it a try! Sunday was my first DD and it went pretty well. I was hungry, but nothing I couldn't handle. Yesterday was my second DD which was easier than the first and I woke up to a 2 lb loss this morning! I thought I would be insanely hungry today but I am not at all. Must be some of that JUDDD magic I have read about. :)

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and THANK YOU to all of the wonderful members who post on this board. You are in inspiration! :clap:

Welcome! I'm new too and absolutely loving this! I just started on Friday and I was down 4lbs this morning (although today is an up day...). The down days have already gotten really easy. I think you're going to love this!

Welcome! :hiya: I just wanted to add my welcome to you, along with all the others, and tell you how happy I am that you are joining us here, doing JUDDD.

I know you are going to love this way of eating and of weight management, and especially since it's so supportive here, it's a happy place to be. Keep us posted on your weight loss as the pounds disappear. We love to cheer our friends on as they head downward toward their goals!

I always tell folks to hang around here a lot, read here a lot, interact with everyone here a lot. There is something that really keeps a person inspired and motivated here, the spirit of excitement is contagious. I know you'll do well.

Everyone here is ready to jump in and answer any questions, or just pat you on the back, or lift you up, if needed!
