Renewed faith in women

Its long been said and by many that all women do is compete with one another and steal each others men, and worse. But everyday I come here and find a group of women who do nothing but support, encourage, lend an ear and a shoulder to cry on, in general are just here for one another through thick and thin( really no pun intended). Our little group really shows many of the best we as women have to ( and do ) offer one another. And all without a whisper of judgement or " I told you so's. This has really renewed my faith in our gender, we should all be so proud. While we have lost weight, we have gained so much more, and no cheat day or Hormonal upheaval can take this away from us. We have grown spiritually as we have shrunk physically. Win win don't ya think. That's really all I wanted to say that and another BIG THANK YOU ALL! you always and forever!!!

Nice to meecha, Muffabuff!
I am Pat, a newbie.

I had very similar thoughts after reading on this thread for days.
I used to say "I could never work with women"; I just did not care for groups of women at all.
I was put off by the pettiness, disloyalty, unkindness and oneup(wo)manship.
This group has completely made me rethink my old stereotyping.
I am blessed each time I read here and I am grateful.
Amen.

I was telling my husband the other day that this forum is so much better than any other I've ever joined or read. Just about any other 'diet' group, forum, newsgroup, or mailing list has at least a few outspoken, horrid people who do nothing but put down the other people because they're not following the diet to the letter or personally attacking everyone else. I have not seen this here and I've read posts back at least a year. The people on this forum (and most of them appear to be women) are nothing but supportive and carng. Even when there are disagreements, they're civil and respectful.

So, I give this group and the wonderful people in it a BIG ! You are ALL

We are quite a group! IF is so freeing since it isn't a diet- what we eat within it is our "diet ". Nothing but positives and encouragement makes changing to an intermittent fasting lifestyle so pleasant. Lots of love to you beautiful women. Cheers lovelies!

I was one who read in this forum for quite some time before having the "nerve" to make myself known and start posting. I was very apprehensive. The more I read, the more I realized what a pleasant place I had stumbled on to. I never thought I would be THANKFUL for a forum! I truly am though!!! Everyone has been so helpful, encouraging, compassionate, funny, just overall so delightful. I have gone on and on about this so much I worried I would come across like a drama queen! I only hope I can "give back" at least as much as I have received. Love you all, veterans and newbies alike. My feelings about people are also renewed. I posted on another thread that this WOL had changed who I am. The people here have played a huge role in that as well. I am blessed. Thanks for the sweet post Muffabuff.

I think - I've always thought - that women are great. And I'm very suspicious of the motives of people who try to portray women as *****y backstabbers out to undermine and diminish each other. Some people, men and women, are like that and they're always the ones that make the most noise. Most people aren't like that at all.

So I'm delighted to see everyone feeling so free and happy to be who we are around here - supportive, helpful people who only want the best success and happiness for those we encounter.

I agree with all of the above. When following LC, I rarely got involved in any conversations; it was almost intimidating with all of the rules/etc.

I sometimes wonder if JUDD is so successful because of the real support here???

I'm sorry about your past experiences. I read alot of diet forums as well and you are correct, this is by far THE best one out there. Everyone does genuinely wish everyone well and has others best interests at heart.

I agree! Even the difference between this board and the main board is night and day, though the main board is huge and this one is "cozy", there is support on the main board but not to the extent of this board. I did find that on the main board it was a little off putting all the demanding that "you must not be doing it right" when the weight wasn't coming off was annoying. I have found extreamly helpful, encouraging people here, everyone seems to get along just fine.

This really resonates though. There is never only 1 way.

"We belong to a mutual, admiration society...my baby and me..." Anyone else old enough to remember that song?

Agreed!

I'm one of those women who generally doesn't trust other women...yes, all my friends are guys! Please don't crucify me! I was traumatized at a young age by two women and later developed PTSD, so maybe you can understand where I'm coming from... I don't like feeling this way, actually it kinda sucks being so afraid of half of the species! But, you all are really showing me that not all women are like that... Baby steps, lol!!

Jupiter, I am so sad for you and I hope you recover from your PTDS.

I had a wonderful mother, sister and 2 daughters, along with many great women friends. I have also known a few 'devil' women....

None of us is perfect, but here on the JUDDD boards we all try to be open, forgiving and supportive.

Great post, Muffabuff.

Every morning I get on the scale, grab my coffee, turn on my computer, log my weight and come here. It truly gives me the warm fuzzies to start my day among the loving, supportive women (and men - I know you're out there) on this board. Thank God for you all!

What lovely responses to my thread. I'm 53 years old so I remember when you had to meet people face to face to "know" them. But I do feel like I am getting to know many of you and the thread Know Your Juddd Buddds was a brilliant idea. I really do feel a sense of belonging when I open my I pad and "join" my Buddds. Wouldn't it be insane if one day we could actually arrange some sort of in person gathering? Never say never. Until then I cherish the cyber time we all share, we are so lucky to have found each other. I challenge anyone to find a cooler group of gals!

This is a wonderful thread, and really reminded me of how much I rely on this forum to help get me through some rough days and how much you all are responsible for the success I've had with JUDDD so far. I don't post much aside from logging in my daily menu due to time issues...just the random thread or two, maybe more if I have a pocket of free time, but I really like to pop in as much as I can because I love the positive energy, the kindness, the supportiveness and the humor/fun I see here. In case I don't say it as much as I should, thank you all. The JUDDD forum is an amazing place with a group of amazing people.
