I guess I thought you had been JUDDDing much longer? You have the wisdom of long term JUDDDer.

I love hearing updates and agree, we are successful even in maintaining. Especially when we can enjoy wonderful food eod.

Hi JUDDDDers!

Wow, it's been a while since I popped back in here to see other people's progress and thought I should update my own.

It's been 9 months since my last update. I JUDDDDed more or less on track from Jan through May and maintained at 142 (2-3 DD or MD/week). After a vacation (maintained, BTW) I had a very active summer, playing a lot of tennis and joining a gym in June to start some strength training. I knew my weight would go up some due to weightlifting (glycogen storage/water retention/some small muscle gains), but gave myself a 5 pound window for fluctuations. I weigh daily, but it is not so emotional for me, just observational.

I was having a hard time figuring out how to work in DD with so much physical activity, so I DROPPED rotations and just tried to watch portions. I don't really count cals anymore. It worked quite well but I started to see a very, very, very, very gradual trend up on the scale. July I was 148 and Oct 22 I was officially over 150 again. So, even though that is pretty slow it was still going in the wrong direction and I knew I had to make some kind of change. It could have been just slightly smaller portions overall, but that is just too hard to manage - how do you make 90% of a sandwich?

I have since added 2 DD each week and am comfortably back to 145 as of today. JUDDDD works! Also, those DD are not strict either. I have the equivalent of one good meal - probably 700-1000 cals. I don't think I had one that was under 500. (example...yesterday I ate a can of tuna with about 3T mayo and then 3 hours later had a McDouble) I have a feeling if I keep it up, I will actually lose more, but I am pretty thrilled with where I am right now. If it ain't broke...

It's nice to say that I am happily maintaining and happily eating! It's so great to see all the progress and positivity happening here - stick with it and you will see results!

I really enjoyed reading this thread! Thanks for the update that brought it to my attention. You are now a "normal" eater - how cool is that! JUDDD works for so many, and as you said - many long term maintainers! What's not to love! Congrats on your continued progress!!

Thanks for the update! Glad you have found a system that is working for you. I find too much exercise is challenging to fit into JUDDD. Incorporating 2 DD's sounds like it is working well.

I found it was too much, too - now I only play tennis about once a week if that - otherwise it is just strength training2-3 times a week for 30-45 min. That's my only exercise!!! LOL I love it like that

Nice!! Thanks for the update, and it's wonderful to hear how well JUDDD is *still* working for you!

P.S. I like the idea of a McDouble on a DD.

Sounds like you have been doing great! I do 2 DDs a week also, but they are around 300 calories.

It's great to read your updates!

How are you finding the strength training? I've heard that although you can gain a little weight with strength training it usually results in losing inches and clothes fitting better.

Have you found this to be the case?

I'm going on holiday in a week and then moving house but once sorted I have some kettlebells at home I am going to try using for a strength routine. They look quite fun!

Definitely some body recomp is going on though it is a very slow process. I am stronger and though I haven't measured, I am pretty sure my bodyfat % is lower. I haven't seen much difference as far as inches but my neck and upper arms have tightened up and the dreaded "back fat" is gone. I usually gain in the belly first, so I imagine it'll be the last to go.

Since it is a slow process and I think I am eating right around maintenance, I am not really going to try to measure changes for about another 6 months. If I am where I am now, I will make some adjustments, but I don't think I will be.

I started with a kettlebell - it is a simple workout, but one you can do at home - until the weight is too light! Go for it - I can't recommend adding the strength training enough!
