Update after 8 weeks
 
I have just finished my first 8 weeks on LC JUDDD and I love it!

I have not been overly strict (only 3 weekend DDs managed & a few FDs due to events & holidays) and I have still lost 14 pounds, 1.75 per week which I have never managed in the past without very strict calorie control. I currently have 500 - 600 cals on DD and don't count on UD (definitely having my min requirement!).

The trick for DDs for me is to put off eating as long as possible. I usually have a breakfast bar in the afternoon with coffee and then have a small late meal like soup etc. The freedom of UDs is amazing. I am keeping to fairly low carb both UD & DD because I feel good but I am open to trying a few more carbs in the future.

Thanks for all the great posts - hearing of everyone else's losses is so encouraging!

Congratulations Dee, you are doing great! :jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy:

I am the same way as you about putting off eating on DD. When starting out four weeks ago, I would hold off until around 11am and now I find myself not eating until about 3pm.

Dee I am so delighted that things are working out so well for you.

You are doing such a great job, thanks for sharing this with everyone, I know how much the Newbies need to read this.

You too Jade!

That's wonderful, and you seem so relaxed about it all! That's something most of (ahem, me) need to work on. WTG! :jumpjoy:

Thanks very much for the encouragement - it is like a miracle to me having struggled so long to find a WOE that feels normal! Even DDs feel normal in a strange way - I hardly notice now at work that I haven't eaten at lunch.

I am a bit jealous when I hear other losing 18 pounds in a month but I actually think that the loose way I am doing JUDDD helps to make it feel natural and not a strict diet. I also love the way a couple of good DDs will make up for most things!

Well done to you all also!
