I'm starting to enjoy the scale bounce--Maybe because I'm learning that eventually it will bounce a little lower as I go. Weighing has become one of my favorite tasks of the day--I refuse to get discouraged now!

Yeah, sizing is completely out of control. A while back - while wearing my own size 4 jeans - I had to purchase a 2XL tshirt (in Target). Please dear fashion industry explain to me on what planet that makes any kind of sense.

This made me giggle...thanks for giving a perfect example of the nonsense that is the fashion industry!!

I'm just throwing out something fairly random this morning: I can't eat as much as I used to! Newflash, right? But this knowledge hits me in waves every once in a while. Yesterday I ate, among other things, split pea and ham soup (yum) and I was FULL for the rest of the day. I ate a small dinner because I really wanted to taste what I'd made, not because I was hungry. Then I kept thinking about all the good food in the kitchen and wishing I could eat it but knowing I was too full! It was a weird kind of torture

I think I've been fighting this very obvious reality - I'm smaller than I was, and I can't ingest as much food. Who knew?!

Well, it makes me laugh. When I weighed 130 (high school) and thought I was fat, I wore a 9/10. I now weigh 169 and I can fit into a 7/8 or 9/10. Makes you go hmmmm.

Have a fabulous day!

Alcestis, I try to look at it as the amount "the healthy me" intended to be eating all along. I just started adding at some point and messed her up! Since my stomach is situated in my midsection, if it wants to downsize, I guess I must give it my blessing and, in fact, hope it will share the idea with the rest of its neighborhood!

Hee. Today I won the 2012 SWIRL Award for excellence in interracial or multi-cultural romance for one of my novels and I'm feeling pretty great. Normally I would break my diet to reward myself. Or if I didn't, I would feel like a martyr. Today's a DD for me, but I'm totally fine with waiting to break out the champagne until tomorrow!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! AND...It is also SO impressive to read that you felt no need to abandon your normal rotations!


I'm feeling darned happy myself. I've just had a second visit from the Whoosh Fairy! My rate of loss had been really dragging and I had started to cross over into the paranoid zone. I had given some serious consideration to trying to shake things up somehow with the diet. Instead I decided to keep going for one more week before panicking. The very next day there was a Whoosh and then another one today! That's two this week! HOORAY!

Steph - that's SO GREAT! I'm curious to know the titles of your books so I can check them out. Congrats on both your award, and also your commitment to your weight loss and health. WAY TO GO!

JoyJoy...Aw, thanks. Your support is a gift!
BIG HUGS to you!

And, LoCarbGal, thank you too! I enjoy making my little scale readout. I started posting it after I had lost 10 pounds -- sort of a celebration. I only weigh every other day, after a DD. Some weeks I get to change it a little bit, sometimes not at all, and sometimes, like this week, the numbers roll by quickly and then it's really fun!

Hi everyone - so many new faces I am looking forward to getting to know you all!!

I did JUDDD great last March, slacked in April and just have been stuck in a rut and getting run over since. However, now that life is calming down and I seen a picture of myself that my daughter took of me yesterday and !!!!

So I am all set to beck in the rotation because of all the "diets" I have tried JUDDD was the most life friendly and worked when I worked it.

I know I have posted here a couple times in the past few months saying I was ready, but I obviously wasn't. But I can say now with a attitude to lose and determination to succeed that I am starting! I have it all programmed on my calendar on my phone UP days and DOWN days and tracking on my phone. I am going to start tomorrow with an UP ... start on the beginning of the week I thought. Today will just be a eat moderate and healthy.

TTFN - coffee ready

congrats Steph and Connie

re the vanity sizing, I too was about 130 lbs in high school... also thought I was fat (the beginning of yoyo dieting and gaining about 90 lbs over 15 yrs )... was a size 10 then. When I weighed 132-137 a few yrs back, which was actually quite a gaunt weight for me, as I am pretty muscular and therefore, heavy for my size, I was a size 4!

Apparently the only dresses that stick to the old sizing is in the bridal industry, so ppl have a big shock having to go up many sizes!

this also helps us make sense of the claims that old starlets like Marilyn Monroe were a size (???) 12 or 14... that is NOT current day those sizes!

Hi! And welcome back to JUDDD! Sounds like you are off to a great start with good planning. Getting a couple days under your belt is the next step to a new you!

wiiiifit, Pauses can be so darned discouraging, hang in there. Simply try to count, rotate, relax and BELIEVE!

Wishing you BOTH much JUDDD magic!
