Newbie sharing her JUDDD experience

So I have been sitting on the JUDDD fence for probably a couple of month now, and about a month ago I finally decided to give it a try. I did 2 rounds of hcg starting december and lost over 50 pounds on it but the last round was a bit rough on me so I was looking for other ways to lose more weight but to also give myself a break from hcg, physically and mentally.
I have to admit I was a bit sceptical about this whole JUDDDing thing, I knew I could do the down days easily since I had lived on that amount of calories for a while, but the UP days had me kind of scared , how tha heck am I going to eat all that food on the updays and not gain?? So I just kept on reading the threads on here and finally started doing and tweaking it and here are my results for the first month.

week 1.....2.5 lbs
week 2.....2.2 lbs
week 3.....0.8 lbs
week 4.....3.4 lbs (still 2 days left before the week is over!)

I am closing my little progress report with letting you guys know that you all rock and that I'm glad that I found this forum!!

Happy Mothersday !

Awesome job!

I wonder if there isn't something about the third week . . . I gained the third week, then lost again the fourth week.

I'm so happy you found us as well, and very pleased with your wonderful progress. And aren't those UDs so much fun now that you've got them figured out?!

I'm so glad you decided to join us here, and the excellent results you are having is proof that it works. JUDDD isn't touted as a *fast* way to dump weight, but it is an exceedingly healthful way to lose weight, and pretty reliable once you have your numbers right and then actually follow those numbers.

Glad you are having such a nice response. Continued good luck! Glad you're here!

Erika, I'm also a former hcger. Congrats on your excellent losses! Perhaps you can share your menus for both UD and DDs? It would be helpful to see how you handled them.

I have done 3 rounds of hHCG and just tried doing a 4th, but I'm just not into it. I did Juddd before and lost a few pounds, so I'm going back to it.
I like the freedom of eating what I want. Just remaining in my calorie limit.
Glad you had a great month! KUTGW!!!!

As a former HHCGer, I understand how you did not want to do another round!

I'm so glad you found JUDDD and that it is working so well for you!

Awesome!!

Tay,

Yep, after a round of protocol, an UD is just sounding delightful.

Looking forward to reading about your successes!
