Something shifted: week 9
 
I have been happily cruising along with DD between 600-800 and averaging a little under a pound a week loss.

This week, it seems like I am really not that hungry on DD, more like a little reminder that I am a little hungry than gnawing, growling, stomach trying to eat itself hunger. I have been at less than 600 my last 3 DD without even thinking about it.

All of that is a relief, first of all, but. . . my weekly loss this week was 2.8 pounds! I have 7 1/2 pounds to goal :jumpjoy:

WTG, Lianora! :jumpjoy: :high5: You'll be sliding into goal in no time. :hugs: Interesting the "shift" around the nine-week mark. You may be interested in adding this to our thread http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ju...ic-survey.html :)

Woo Hoo! :kicking: It sounds to me like you lowered your DD calories down just enough that they fell below some *crossover* point, and that propelled you to a level where you moved from merely low calorie dieting into the triggering of more JUDDD/fasting/SIRT1 benefits of this plan. As you observed.. something shifted. You reached a different DD calorie level, and for you, that brought you to the crossover. That was your magic number apparently. :up: There really is a reason why we have low calories on Down Days when we do this plan. That's a lot of what makes JUDDD work its magic. :up:

How exciting that you are so close to goal weight! I'll bet it won't take long to get there now. :clap:

Yes, it took about 7 weeks for me. :high5:

No kidding!!

I think it's really exciting! It looks like it takes some of us longer to hit that sweet spot.

Well, this looks incredibly like you're there.

Plus, I think this example is encouraging to newbies who haven't been able to hold their DD calories as low at the beginning as JUDDD tells us to. Some can do a fabulous job with holding to the low DD calories, right from their start, but others of us (me, for one) just had a real hard time doing 500 or fewer calories on Down Days, so had to start higher.

Plus, another thing.. LOL.. it does point out also that it's a good idea to try to get those DD calories down a bit lower whenever you're able to manage that. Even if you can't manage it every DD, any that you can will propel you toward better weight loss and faster weight loss, and most of us think getting slim sooner rather than later would be nice. :laugh:

Leanora I am delighted thee the shift has happened. 1 lb a week was great but now you are melting!

Lianora Mosswood 04-15-2012 05:53 PM

Kissa, I am catching up (or down) with you! Since I think you look gorgeous in your photos, that is a pretty big perk for me :-)

kUTGW!

Fabulous news! Glad you are getting better hunger suppression to allow those dd's to go lower. You'll be at goal (and trying to stop the losses) in no time at all.

WTG!!!!!! Congrats on being so close to goal!!!! I am so happy for you!! I cant wait to read the "I did it" post!

I love reading this. Aren't you glad you didn't get discouraged and give up? This is a good lesson for other newbies to hang in there.
