This. During my two biggest upsets with JUDDD and falling off the wagon, I may look in the direction of other plans (many already tried and failed) in hopes that's the one that will do it for me. But, I always know in my gut (no pun intended) that JUDDD is the only plan I can do the rest of my life.

Even though I'm not formally JUDDD'ing yet, even just doing it on the fly has me agreeing with the calm feeling because I have had it in the past. Glad this thread got bumped!

Calming. Yeah. That's a good way to describe it.
I feel the same exact way. I have never felt this way on a "diet" before.

The JUDDD calm kicked in for me around the 5-6 month mark, but I think it keeps getting better and better. I have never before felt confident that I will lose the weight AND keep it off!

At 7 weeks now, I love JUDDD and intend to stick with it. I can't say I've felt the peace you all are describing yet, and relieved to hear that I can expect it to come when the time is right. Maybe not so far in the future. I'm really excited to get to each stage as it comes. And hearing your experiences encourages me to stay the course. All in good time.

Thank you, Nancy. This was exactly the right post, at the right time for me.
See, Carol was once a newbie too!

I'd say you have the "calm" in all its glory. Even when you don't feel calm, you're willing to try new things, mix things up, NOT WEIGH, etc! You !!
