WOE: Low Carb
Start Date: 3/03 originally
Hi all! I guess I should introduce myself. I started on May 24th, after doing low carb forever, and said I'd give JUDDD a couple of weeks. Well that two week mark came & went last Friday and I'm loving JUDDD (big surprise, eh?) and it seems to be working.

I started Atkins in 2003 and over a few years w/ one big bounce in there I was down to just under 160 by 2006. I felt great, looked great, and loved being that weight. In late 2007 I let myself slip up over the holidays a bit, saying I'd take it all off in January. Well January 5th, already back on plan as I'd promised myself, we were in a car accident and it all went downhill from there. By the time I finally got up the gumption to do something about it last spring I was at an all time high of 278. I knew low carb worked and so I worked it, fairly quickly getting down into the low 200's. Then I started taking a day off here, a day off there... just treading water and holding ground for the most part. I've kept losing, but much slower. My lowest recent low was 188 in late April. With several JUDDD'ers on our ongoing challenge I knew it was a potential option and a couple of weeks ago, after Mother's Day Mexican off plan and my son's May b-day off plan, I figured what the heck! Let's see if I can work these 'off plan' days into a real plan and give JUDDD a try. Of course it's been enjoyable and it does feel like I'm cheating every other day, but the scale seems to be moving downward. After my first UD I was 194ish and today I was a solid 189, just one up from my previous low. I've done Fast 5 and have read about IF extensively, so the concept & science behind JUDDD makes sense to me. I'm hoping I'll continue to see progress, but if not I know where to turn for help. Thanks for making this such a supportive little corner of the board

Hello everyone

I'm back after being gone for months!! and i've just come back from holidays 9lbs heavier but I'm much heavier then I was last time I was here and I'm now 191lbs the heaviest I've been in years. It's been a very difficult year for me but it's only now I feel like I'm picking up the pieces of my life and getting on with things. Which includes getting rid of very bad eating habits. I always found this woe kept me in a good frame of mind which is very important to me now. But and I'm glad to be back

Greetings and , Majella.

It's so difficult to attend to a WOE when other things are awry. It's good to see you here at a time when you feel that you have the breathing space to look at JUDDD again.

I hope that you and JUDDD have an opportunity to settle in with eachother and come to an amicable WOE that suits you and your life.

Dearest Majella, it is so lovely to have you back. I know you have had some really hard times lately so it is wonderful that you are ready to post here again. And, boy oh boy, do I love your cat. Is he a Norwegian or Maine Coon?

And a big to you Tami. I can see you will enjoy this so much. I know of no other plan where a Mexican evening, with a Margarita can be an on plan meal. (OK, not often, but it can!)

back Majella! I'm so sorry you've had rough times in your life recently. But I'm glad you're ready to get eating back on track, and what better way than JUDDD and the JBs. Good luck!

Well I did my first DD yesterday and had no problems except it was 600cal instead of 500. I must have been holding onto a ton of water because I'm 5lbs lighter this morning!!! So that means I only put on 4lbs on holidays So I'm feeling quiet positive today

Great start Majella! My first DDs went over by a bit also - but now, 6 weeks later I have them under control. Have a great day!

Welcome back! I know things were really rough when you were here last. I hope you can leave some of that stuff off in the past and focus on things that you feel good about. You are surely off to a good start with that first whoosh!

I also love your beautiful cat! My lovely, old lady Willow is part Norwegian (we think...)

Thanks Carly, I feel like I'm moving on now and I have my studio at home now so i'm looking to the future not back too much! That's Mika my cat, he doesn't look like that now as he's lost his winter fur. Willow is a lovely cat name! Mika is only part Norwegian as well, he can't catch mice and can't climb trees but he makes me laugh every day with the things he does he's not the brightest cat!! Well I could talk forever about Mika so I'd better go now

Hi everyone! I have been lurking for a week or so and finally decided to say hello. I have been so inspired by all of you, certainly because of your amazing weight loss stories, but also because of the compassion and kindness and you show one another, and the endless encouragement you offer each other; it's just really lovely. It's been an absolute pleasure to read, thank you.

I just started JUDDD last week. I stumbled across it somehow--Divine inspiration perhaps I finally mustered up the courage to actually weigh myself, man that only took me about 6 years; I had such a fear that the number would be so big that it would overwhelm me and make me abandon all hope. Well, I did it, and it was big (225!) but I faced it and I didn't die of antimotivational syndrome, so here we are.

I have not yet had the courage to weight myself since doing JUDDD faithfully for one week. I do not want to get discouraged, so my victories right now are of the NSV variety: my pants feel less tight, my fat feels squishier, rings are a bit looser, I look a little bit smaller to my own eyes, so all of that is great. Here's to the long haul!

Macci - you've just put down a nice milestone by posting so that we can get to know you.

Well done for feeling the aversion but weighing yourself anyway so that you can check in with that marker of progress, if you should wish, at some point.

It's grand that you and JUDDD are settling into such a good rhythm with each other that you're already noticing changes.

Thank you Macci for you kind words. and a big to the JUDDD family.

I love that you found the courage to weigh, it still hard for me sometimes even after all this time maintaining. We all seem to hate that machine, even when it is kind to us.

I am so pleased to hear that you are seeing and feeling results. As you have discovered, we really value the Non Scale Victories here, they are often the things that keep us going.

Do post often and get to know everyone.
