I told BF I wanted to be able to wear this red dress he loves (from about 3 yrs and 25 lbs ago ) again on Valentine's Day . I feel good about having this as one of my goals... and not being so downtrodden as I have been, for the last year or so esp., about ever succeeding again in losing weight

I hope you make your goal or exceed it. I had a gorgeous bright red dress I wanted to wear to graduation back in 03-04, but when graduation came, it was way too big.

And you aren't trying to lose weight immediately so you WILL succeed with reasonable expectations. GO JUDDD!!!

thanks Cindy and Adi... I appreciate your support! half way through my first down day... and scallops for dinner, a splurge.

yesterday I also got a pair of black dress pants (on sale for $18 from $79) and a few new tops that fit and look nice... when I look crummy and frustrated w nothing to wear, I feel crummy, and when I feel crummy, I lose energy and focus and gumption to extricate myself from my overfatness... talk about a vicious circle . I know in a few months, the pants will be droopy drawers, and that is fine, I can donate them... and go shopping in my closet lol. I recall in my original big weight loss, I tried to have a pair of black pants and a pair of jeans that fit, often from thrift or TJMaxx, changing every 10 lbs or so, and then tops are more forgiving, can go 20 lbs or so. and I have put on a little makeup and perfume these last few days too... part of a msg to my self of you are worth it, take some time to look and feel good (not that health and vitality and wellness are not my main big motivators re weight... but I do notice negative and positive circles re appearance and weight too). well enough blabbing... just happy to be on board!

DD#2... so far 175 cals and it is around 2 pm... I do not even feel that hungry, which is very weird , but good, because I know I will make it today. whitefish with tomatoes, Italian style for dinner, and BF can have pasta, which I really don't care for that much (I know for some peeps it's the bomb, but I can take it or leave it... now sweets and spuds, those are my downfall... but I can have small portions on UD!).

My 16 year old daughter left today for a 10 month Rotary exchange to Izmir, Turkey... I will not see her for about 7.5 months

I had a good cry after she left (her dad, my ex, is driving her to the airport), and then got busy tidying up, and did a little 15 min toning routine... I will be really anxious until I hear she has arrived safe and sound, tomorrow... and I am strangely calm and not at all turning to food for "comfort" (so short lived). I look forward to visiting her in the spring, fitting back into all my nice clothes, and buying some new things too... including maybe over there!

thanks for listening

Well done Toora. A tough day for you and you handled it wonderfully.

I am sure she will have an amazing time in Izmir.

I had a good DD today, lots of rushing up and down star is carrying drawers and stuff. We were moving furniture back into our bedroom after the floor was sanded last week. It looks great.

I had an Atkins shake this morning, (found a couple at the back of a cupboard and couldn't waste them), then nothing except coffee and tea until this evening when I made a a Thai cabbage and crab stick stir fry. Delish.

((tooraloora)) You must have done something right. You reared a child who is looking forward to spreading her wings, learning and doing.

Cindy, those "stray" Atkins shakes have value. My daughter was grateful for one yesterday morning when the school time was almost upon her!

Suze, still thinking of you and wishing all the best!

Dawn, how are your 2 friends who had health concerns?

Wow Whitlin', what a memory you have!

Rhiannon had her baby last week. She made it to 37 weeks and he's a stunning, healthy, handsome baby boy.

Jan is out of the hospital, but her brother and her two daughters are taking turns staying with her. She's not able to live on her own anymore, and it's heartbreaking because she's so young. It's very difficult on her children because they both live several hours away in different cities, and having to take time off work and away from their own households is very stressful. I'm still hoping for a good outcome.

Today I contemplated the fact that my UDs are never going to be as big as I'd like them to be because I'm a woman, I'm 50, and I'm in goal range.
At some level I still resent this deal. It's as though my needs and wants haven't quite come together, yet.
I wondered who I'd have to be to eat as much as I'd like and still lose weight like a champ.
So I looked it up.

Turns out that I could have UDs of 3534 calories and DDs of 707 calories (this sounds like heaven to me - at this level I might feel like those of you who can't get their UD calories in).

I could what I'd like to eat if I were 13 years old, 7 feet tall, and 450 pounds.

Talk about being out of sync with yourself.

Time to get in line with who I actually am, methinks.

Joyjoy... I hear ya, not so much re JUDDD as I am a nooooob, but re maintenance calories which I have been struggling with for about 4 or 5 years... esp. because I have 3 teens (2 are athletes) and a BF who eat about twice as much as me. Hmmm, prolly contributed to my weight creepage

indeed, I just now commented to BF, gosh I am hungry (9 pm on a DD) and he said, so innocently, "I'm not!"... ummm gee Mr. you had two side dishes and a glass of wine with the cod, tomatoes and romaine I had... plus whatever else all day.

Basically, I too would love to be able to eat tousands and tousands of calories (Irish accent), but at 48, non-farmer, non-athlete, non-male, non-teen, it just isn't in the cards.

Kristin, this really resonated with me on many levels. I wondered what was wrong with ME that every day on JUDDD is a diet for me. For some people, it is an every other day thing. But I have to restrict a lot on my UD's from what I was eating before and for what I really want in order to feel satisfied. I would love to be able to eat 3000 calories on an up day. I just love food. I am waiting for my needs and wants to become in sync too.
It requires such conscience effort on my part, and hopefully someday, it will become natural.

So glad to hear about a new, healthy baby, Dawn, and that your friend Jan does have a good brother and daughters to come to her aid.

JUDDD an everyday diet, even in maintenance? I guess in a way it is. But on any WOE it was long ago time for me to realize that getting/staying slim was going to take brainpower. The days of spontaneous eat-any-way-I-please were over long before I was aware of it - probably my late 20s - and after that I continued to try to reach a weight and then forget it. Never happened again!

I do think it became more natural for me to plan on JUDDD, easier while I was in maintenance. I also think taking a vacation from it temporarily is perfectly normal and healthy.

I like hearing about maintainers who go on a trip for instance, and just forget food planning for a while, deciding to recoup their losses when they return. I think that's nice. But I do think that's a vacation only. Hoping I didn't have to plan my food again when I returned would be like hoping I didn't have to wash my clothes when I returned. Fun thought, but not going to get my daily self-care done.

Does that sound like a lecturing mother?

I'd been wondering, too! Great news on the baby and for Jan and kids.

, no! I'm facing this "dilema" soon. This will be a vacation, as in there are vacations, and then there are vacations. This vacation will result in different cultures and food. I'm a picky eater so I'm hoping any potential damage will be minimal. On the other hand, JUDDD'ing definitely shows me I'm not going to starve and there WILL be food available. On the other hand, it's nice to know JUDDD is (generally) forgiving if we vacation a little more than expected.

Now, I'm going to sit here and ponder the irony of being an overweight, picky eater as I await the Whooshie Fairy because I'm way overdue for a visit!

I love you Vanilla. When I travel I Hoover up all the foreign food. Bat Pate was one of my greatest moments. And snake holds no fear for me, tastes like chicken.

Okay, bat pate is one I might have to avoid. DH and I were just talking about "weird" foods we've eaten. It's funny how something that seems so foreign to us is just food elsewhere. I can't bring myself to eat frog, but I've happily sampled ostrich, alligator, escargot, squid, etc. It's purely mental for me.

I ate fried grasshoppers in Mexico!!!
(Dozens of them, covered in salt & spices & chili powder, wrapped in a big flour tortilla.)

I was about 8 years old, and loved them...they were so crunchy!!!

I was only about 1/2way through it when my mom yanked the tortilla out of my hand and threw it in the trash!!!

Fruit bats are huge and have loads of meat, I was in the Seychelles, lots of French influence. Tasted just like any other good pate. I haven't worked out the accents on a Mac....

Frog legs are a staple in my husband's family. My father-in-law introduced me to them and I think he would have been quite disappointed had I not liked them - which I did.

Escargot - sure I ate it, because I don't speak French so I figure since that's another word besides "snails", the name must somehow make them different from actual snails, right? Yes, mental thing, definitely.

For all I know, the chef found them on the steps that morning and just rinsed them off. Like the bats, I suppose there's no need to ask from which part of the animal the dish was made. Or did they find the tiny little bat livers and separate them for the pate? (innocent face)

Oh, a fruit bat...that actually sounds a bit more appealing than an insect bat.

Actually, we very nearly made fruit bat pâté ourselves a few times, trying to chase them out of the house by swatting at them with tennis rackets!!! They kept eating our bananas!!!
