For the very first time, probably since high school, I have honestly arrived at my goal weight!!! I have tried many different diet plans in my life, but JUDDD is the only one that I found I could easily stick with, not get obsessed with food, and it kept on working for me. My metabolism had been totally stalled and I felt I would never lose weight again. Here I am, almost 80 pounds lighter and feeling on top of the world. I am actually tired of people telling me how good I look, something I never thought I would be saying! Many people ask me how I did it and I tell them about JUDDD, but always preface it with the statement that it worked for me, but everybody must find their own path. I found JUDDD on this site, as I had been using Atkins in the past. Thank heaven I made the break and took a chance on something different. I will be seeing my entire family in just a few days at a surprise party in Texas and I am almost dreading all the comments I will be getting--at least they will be about something positive! I think what makes it work for me is the 'I can eat tomorrow' philosophy. (I admit I keep dreaming I am going to wake up and the weight will be back.) If I choose to wear tight pants I can fit into a size 8, which at 5'8" for me sounds like an utter impossibility. I started out at an 18/20. My energy level is tremendous, I have no more knee pains and I have stayed utterly and totally healthy this entire year. When something works, it works.

:jumpjoy: WOOP! WOOP! WOOP! You give me hope today!!! I've been kind of maintaining but also enjoying eating and a business trip. I've been getting a lot of compliments too on weight loss but have really only dropped maybe 8 lbs. Hoping to be close to goal by summer and with JUDDD I believe that I can :up:

Do you have before and after pics you could share? Fantastic job!!!
