Pat, Cici, I can really identify.
I used to read Pat's (SoHappy's) posts about eating a huge variety of foods, including cookies, pies, etc. and dream that JUDDD would enable me to do this. (I know that her diet is predominantly healthy, of course.)
And maybe some day it will happen for me. So far, though, I feel like heck in every way when I eat carbs, and they still result in me doing UUADs.
So I JUDDD away, doing LC most days and feeling great.
The difference with the might-as-well-be-heroin junky carbs, now, is that I don't eat them often, and when I do, even if it results in a UUAD, I don't become miserable and defeated. Instead, I think, okay, I'm not at ease with those, yet. And tomorrow is a DD.
I get back on the horse far more easily with this WOE than with any other.
This one feature is worth the whole JUDDD trip for me. It feels like I've enrolled in a very forgiving course in self-knowledge and self-care.
Hoping for the best for both of you. Also, always hoping you'll continue to hang out with us. (Jeepers, I must have some attachment issues, too. )

Everybody. Thanks for your support and suggestions. I will still be hanging out and hanging on for the time being. I said I would give this WOE until the first of the year and intend to stick to it. That said, for the time bein, I am giving myself a rest from obsession by having a downish day. 961 would be 50% maintenance for me and I can stay under that without counting. Then when I have what to eat under control and feel good about the way I feel and the elimination of cravings, I will work on bringing my DDs back into WLM. I will resume tracking calories in a day or two just to stay honest.

This is where I hope to be soon.

Sounds like a good plan to me too. I believe we find success when we give ourselves a break. Pre-JUDDD, I would never have said that 961 calories every other day was a break but I live and learn
Best of luck Cici. You have so much support on the board, I think it shows that we all recognise something of ourselves in each other's struggles.
