So awesome! I remember in the beginning you were worried about co-worker lunches. It looks like you have that figured out just fine. Welcome to the Twonderful world of the 200's

Surprised you remember that! Well I did figure it out. When Friday falls on my UD, I go (if it's a place I like!) and if it's a DD, I don't go. Sometimes I miss not going, but I've learned to deal with it. Today is a DD for me and they went to Red Robin. That one stung a little..LOL. But, it's only ONE day. Tomorrow I can I have a Red Robin burger or whatever I want.

Of course you feel that way. And, of course it is perfectly, utterly, completely normal.

You are, we all are climbing a mountain. Watch mountain climbers. From the ground, they survey the heights. But once they start climbing, they pay attention to where they are now and where they are going next. They don't worry about the peak anymore, they look for hand-holds, they concentrate on the journey. From time to time, they may think about how high above them the peak still is. Then they remember how amazing it will feel when they are on top. So, they forget about the peak and look for the next hand-hold.

When they talk about it later, they share the exhilaration of being on the top. But they also share, with great enthusiasm, each hand-hold, each part of the climb.

And, now and again as they climb, they stop to look at the beautiful scenery spread out below and around them.

Karen, you have just completed a very perilous part of your climb. Catch your breath. Look around. All of your fellow climbers are waving and cheering because YOU are that beautiful scenery Karen. Looking and feeling better than you have looked and felt in - how long?

Wave back. Tell yourself it is alright to throw your head back and howl at the sky because you have climbed this high. Then remind yourself that you are a mountain climber. You will always be. All of us will all always be mountain climbers.

The only way anyone can conquer their mountain is by not worrying about how high it is.

Time to find the next hand-hold. Time to enjoy the climb.
Thank you. This is great. Gives me a new perspective on things.

Karen, you have a good attitude. This was very heartwarming to read today. I am thrilled for you and look forward to celebrating every milestone with you. When you have to skip those outings, doesn't it feel great when you get past it? It really will be worth it all one of these days!!!

Nancy, what awesome words of inspiration!!

Congratulations, Karen, your weight loss is fantastic!!!

To play with gotsomeold's analogy, (hope that's OK) as we climb this mountain, there are lookout spots with gorgeous views. Every now and then it's nice to pause and enjoy where we are on this journey. Then keep climbing, for that really fantastic view.

I've eaten at RR on a DD. I think their plain grilled chicken sandwich isn't too bad if I remember correctly, especially if you only eat half the bun or skip it entirely. And you can get speckled fruit salad instead of fries for not too many calories.

ETA: They don't have it on the tables, but if you ask for it, they will provide you with a nutritional information card. It's pretty comprehensive.

Karen your story is wonderful and it helped me survive a tough DD yesterday! Thanks for sharing.

Nancy's analogy is golden. I love it. I just hate the part when I lose my hand-hold and go skittering down the mountain. It's hard to make up that distance lost, but up I go again with all my scrapes and bruises.

You guys are funny...LOL.

It's ok...I actually prefer not going on DDs...I "try" to keep my calories well under 500 on a DD, so my grilled chicken and vegetables works for me. Sometimes I completely fast on DDs. Some days I can do it, some days I can't.

Well done Karen, great weight loss in 3 months. I know what you mean about not being satisfied. I find JUDDD helps me feel like I am not on a diet - so therefore don't feel like I need to lose quickly!

I'm so glad to see that you are still losing consistently each month. I have only been doing this about 5 weeks. I would love for this to be my WOL forever but always assume that it will stop working at some point like all other diets. I know some people have stalls and have to readjust their calories but it is still great to see that you have lost good amounts each month. I hope I have the same experience.

Midtown, JUDDD is amazing. I am in my ninth month and it is still working the same way it did in the beginning.

For me, the only differences are I feel much better consistently, am wearing size 8s, and am planning my transition to maintenance because I am very, very close to calling goal.

I'm just blown away by the love and support on this forum!

It's so easy to read a post and just think "that's brilliant." But you guys take the trouble to write that, to create a celebration of a victory for the recipient or to be there with a hug and sensible and positive advice when people get discouraged. You're an amazing bunch of people and I'm so happy to have found you!!

I'm also losing weight with your help and feeling very enthusiastic about finding a way to maintain when I reach goal.
Thank you.

Wow....I wish I could completely fast on my DDs! I get as far as lunchtime, and I'm scrounging around for something to fill my belly!

You're doing such a fantastic job, and I love hearing everyone's progress reports--they're inspiring, and motivational!

You are doing fantastic! And getting into the "twos" is a BIG accomplishment. Say goodbye to 300 forever!

I feel so good about what I've accomplished most of the time, but every now and then, I'll catch a glimpse of myself in a store window or something and it makes me realize how far I still have to go. But like others have said, I have to look back at that highest weight and tell myself, that's 60 pounds you DON'T have anymore, and in several more months it'll be 60 more. We can do this!!!

Nancy, you truly have a gift with words. What is the proper way to quote or refer your thoughts to someone outside this forum?

Thank you, Cici. My DH would say I am an endless fountain of words...save that he talks more than I do

I'm not sure if I understand the question. My analogies are set free for all the universe to enjoy. I guess I'd say, "I encountered an interesting analogy the other day..." or "A lady on one of the forums I enjoy said...."

Or, just smile and claim the idea as your very own. I doubt I'll ever get around to writing that world-famous book

Just think: eventually, you will catch a glimpse of yourself in a store window and not even recognize the person you see standing there. I think it was Yam-Yam who posted a thread a while back about just that. I have found myself looking at my reflection in windows across the street, and being amazed at what I see. I'm much more critical of my flaws in an actual mirror, but in a store window, you sort of see yourself from a distance and by accident. Just keep on keeping on and you will reap all the rewards.

I actually saw 295 over the weekend! However, that was Sunday morning and I had been sweating like a pig all day Saturday volunteering for an animal shelter...I wasn't replacing the fluid I was losing, so Sunday morning I was down to 295. It quickly came back plus a few more. I do not believe I will show a loss this week...didn't show one last week either.

Amazing how many pounds water can add up to.
