This group is so awesome!
 
Hello fellow Judders! I have been away from the group for awhile because of work. I am an EA for our CEO and CFO and we just purchased a company that is 5x our size. You can imagine the STRESS, the HOURS, and the crazy schedule I have been keeping. On top of all of that, my daughter had surgery. Stayed with her at the hospital...more stress....

I haven't been Judding perfectly, but even on my worst weeks, I would throw a DD in here and there to make myself feel better. I know it wasn't enough though and the weight started creeping up. I am definitely one who rewards herself with food. (I DESERVE IT, DANG IT!) Haha!

Anyhow, all told, I probably sit around 2 pounds over my lowest Judd weight. I am anxious to be back to reading the forums and getting inspired again. There is a lady in the office that started Atkins and I almost bailed on Judd. (It was a 2 minute consideration).

So I have had a pretty good week of rotations and hope to see some results. Just taking the time this evening to peruse the boards has strengthened my resolve and I am remembering what I love about this plan.

So THANK YOU!:heart:

I promise to check in more and participate more in the group.

:welcome: back Monica! JUDDD works so well, it's just hard to give up on it!
Glad you decided to join us again.

Congratulations on the new business, even tho the stress is great, hopefully it will be worth it.

Hope your daughter is recovering from her surgery, and will be up and about in no time.

Keep posting and let us know how you are doing. :)

Glad to see you back. I'm sorry about all the stress and totally understand. My DD had surgery when she was two, and there's nothing more stressful than having your child sick/hurt. :console:

Welcome back Monica! I have a very stressful job also and my doctor suggested a supplement called Relora. I love it and try and remember to take it 2x daily. I helps bring down the stress in everyday life! I take the Source Natural's brand of Theanine Serene with Relora. It definitely helps me sleep better and takes care of anxiety eating. ;) Also, this brand has Relora combined with magnesium, holy basil, GABA, l-theanine and taurine. My DS (30) was having terrible insomnia and I knew it had to be stress related, so I gave this to him and he said that he not only sleeps sound, but is waking up very refreshed and ready to go.

I get a ~shiver~ thinking back on Atkins. Just wasn't for me. Love the freedom of this plan, and IT WORKS!! Keep us posted how things go for you!:high5:

Nice to meet you Monica. Hugs to your daughter:hugs:I'm sure Juddding is like riding a bike lol. You should give yourself a pat on the back you caught yourself at only two lbs over!

So yesterday I got a 10% raise and was told they are hiring me an assistant. Ahhhhhh! So happy this weekend!

Thanks for all the love everyone! It's great to be back! And Sunday, I will definitely look into that supplement!

I have had a good week of cycling but don't see much of a change. I think my body is just waiting for me to go "off" cycle again. I hope in the next week or so I see some weight melting away. Interesting, my fat percent has dropped, so I hope to see a whoosh soon! :)

Yes, it is awesome. Glad you made it through all that with only a 2-pound gain and more importantly, kept sirtuins going by throwing a DD in as often as you could. That will serve you well in supporting your good health despite the stress.

Glad you're back! :jumpjoy:

OMG that is so amazing. You must be so thrilled and at the same time so proud that they have noticed how wonderful you are.
