Shelby wow great write up! Also something I see...not only did you break the 145 barrier, but you only bounced up to 147. That's down one pound from the previous high.

Cuttie - Never regret sharing a lovely meal with your hubby. Life is short. Treasure these times.

I'm back down to 238.4 this morning and have about 2#s of bandages on my left arm for the lymphedema therapy. You can see pics on my JUDDD Menus blog.

Cuttie - I don't think I could have refused that wonderful food either! Don't worry about that one meal. Like you said, just jump right back in. It sounds like you need to have a talk with your husband and make sure he understands that you need to plan for your feasts. I know that takes some of the spontanaety out of it, but if you're serious about losing this weight, for the time being, it just can't be all that spontaneous.

That's what I've told myself. I have urged my family and friends to eat normally when I'm around, and not to feel bad for snacking or having a dessert when I'm not, but also please not to offer me any or urge me to have just a little. So far they are all cooperating with that. I think they still feel guilty when they are sitting there with a bowl of popcorn, or ice cream or whatever, but for me, right now, losing weight is more important to me than eating those things.

I hope your DH and mom will be able to see how important this is for you. Why they feed you and then remind you you need to lose weight, I don't know. Seems kind of mean. I'm sure they don't mean it to be, but that would frustrate me to no end. Do you remind your DH that he needs to lose weight? It's not like we overweight don't know we're heavy and need to lose. Why do people want to point it out to us? Makes me crazy.

Anyway, you're doing great! Just keep doing it. And good for you for sharing that frustration with us. We can all keep each other strong (mostly!).

Dear Cuttie99
TWO thoughts come to mind- I can see it.
If that happened regularly?
I would be very disappointed in those people.
People who love us are suppose to help us.
So if I was having a good knee day.
A.... I'd tackle them, and smack um.
And say there!
Plan B.
Stick to ur guns.. it ain't easy.
Which I can do caz I'm stubborn .
I would try so hard to say.
In my nice voice.
No thank you,
Put part of the Sabotage food in the freezer for later day? u can eat it when U plan to eat it.. Not to be pushed into their game.
And eat your planned happy food, in front of them.
THEY should be sitting there feeling BADDD. Bad to the bone.

They don't want u to look better than them.
I WANT you to feel good.
Hoping talking to someone, instead of tackling them, works.

Pootie--I have a patient with post-BC lymphedema and who has gone through a progressive series of wraps and sleeves. The good news is that 14 months after she started this therapy, she is down to a very moderate sleeve and silicone glove and no longer has to wrap so intensely. My heart goes out to you--

Subbing and reading through later. Thinking of trying, or at least attempting regular JUDDD again.

I was afraid of doing this diet since I'm insulin resistant. Well, I put on 2 pounds on my first day. I had around 700 calories in potatoes only. That's enough for me.

I would expect that water weight gain for you.. You eat quite low carb, don't you? Still, I don't think you can tell anything after a single day.

But while it's an interesting study, and many here are having a fun time with it, that doesn't mean it's meant for everyone, or that it is even 'good' for everyone, although I believe the water weight gain and some carb sensitivity and insulin resistance is supposed to dissipate after a bit of doing this... I think.

But plain old JUDDD is so great that it will be my plan forevermore. I'm doing my second day of potatoes only, and will probably do a third, as I love my taters and this is so-o-o-o-o not hard for me to stick to for awhile. But I'll most certainly be going back to JUDDD very shortly.

Pooti - Ty for the welcome, and I wish you success with the lymphedema therapy.

My weight stayed the same as yesterday (and the day before), but this is also apparently a Super TOM, as last month's was a fizzle. Ah, the joys of perimenopause... At any rate, I'm not ballooning as I typically do.

Last night's dinner spuds were excellent -- simmered in broth flavored with Emeril's essence spice blend that I mixed up. Cleared my sinuses!

Yes, I do low carb. I have a naturally low metabolism. If anyone's going to not have this work, it's me. I may try it again.

Has anyone else gained weight after their first day of this diet? It seems like most people had lost at least a pound their first day.

Jeneric, I suspect I gained weight the first day - didn't weigh until day 3 but I was puffy for the first day or two. Then I started deflating and felt great.

So I've now done three days of the potato hack, and am loving it.
I don't know where my hunger has gone, probably the same place my cravings went, cos I haven't seen them around either.
Then there is the weight loss! I've lost .5kg/1.1lbs every day, but I do have a lot to lose.
At the moment I can see NO reason I will need to stop the PH before the 10th day.

Then I will have two LCHF days and get onto JUDDD proper.
I want to make sure my rotation falls onto an up day for Christmas, and get to eat some of my Mum's pavlova

Good luck to everybody else doing the PH today.

ETA: I'm only eating 2 meals a day, and stop eating when I've had enough, so that's a huge improvement for me. Even the usual post-dinner hunt in the fridge has stopped!

Yes, my fingers and feet ballooned up tremendously, so I am sure I was heavier too. I was avoiding the scale so I didn't have that shock. I'm really glad I stuck it out. Just 2 or 3 days later and my jaw was dropping at how much I lost. You may be having a dietary switch after which you body is adapting.

Thanks everyone for all your support. Well I lost 2 lbs from a potato only DD. Let's see how fast I can screw this up again!!! lol Although potatoes are great to release my water wt and it decreases my cravings and hunger, I feel odd eating just potatoes. I feel empty and like I am in ketosis and sometimes weak and sometimes cranky... usally I feel cranky weak hungry etc anyways on dd's. I much rather eat less of normal foods on DD's... I will continue to incorportate them.


Does anyone know if all the diuresing we do can potentially be bad for our kidneys? I feel that after coming off of HCG it completely screwed up my water balance. If I eat too much salt or carbs I bloat. I never weighed myself in the past if I had bloat wt daily so I am not sure this happened to be prior to HCG. I need to ask some "normal" folks to weigh themselves after high carb and Na foods to see how much they gain. I just worry that one day all this "water flushing" we do especially after feasts will be harmful. I think its also a side effect from those folks that did low carb....

Stats:
12/2 173.5 DD potato only day , about 700 cals no fat, waist 35
12/3 170.5 UD lost 3lbs! regular up day foods about 2000 cals (bloat wt loss)
12/4 170.0 DD lost .5 lbs!!! had several bm's yesterday? no headache pDD 700 cals potatoes only, +++
12/5 168.5 UD lost 1.5lb last of the bloat weight 1800 cals
12/6 169.0 DD gain .5lb after up day, ate 700 cals potatoes only
12/7 168.0 UD lost 1 lb, cals 2000, +
12/8 168.5 UD gain .5, waist 33 dinner at wendy's
12/9 170.0 UD gain 1.5, water wt,
12/10 170.5 DD into UD gain ,ate unexpected spanish food for dinner, under 3000 cal?
12/11 171.5 PDD gain 1 lb, 700 cals
12/12 169.5 lost 2 lbs of bloat

I do not know the answer to your question. BUT I suffered with water retention for many years and many doctors later still did not have an answer.I thought it was from too high carbs and/or salty food. On JUDDD that problem went away. It came back when I tried the nutritional ketosis diet along with JUDDD. Who would have ever guessed that MY water retention was due to high fat rather than salt/sodium etc? I actually drink salt in my water now and drink really high sodium broth on DD's with no problems.

So maybe just following a nutritious diet will make you "normal" as far as water retention and flushing water from your system.

OK, let me just say first of all, that I'd never eaten cold potato, just sprinkled with salt and malt vinegar. OMG! I love it. It will now be added to *Things I Like to Eat* for the rest of my life. I mourn the years of my life that I didn't think of eating cold potatoes with malt vinegar.

After eating russets and sweet potatoes, which were the two I already had lots of on hand, I did lose about a pound and one half, so that was fine.

But... the experiment is over for me. I miss eating my usual ton of variety, so today I'm back to eating my normal JUDDD with lots of different foods and variety over the days.

I'm still reading here to see how the rest of you do as the days go by, and as the weeks go by with potatoes only being added for several days of each week, if it comes to that. I think it is very interesting.

I think it has to do with protein content and androgens in fat that control cortisol, aldosterone, etc which controls fluid reg in kidneys...just my theory.

Weightloss is sticking. 239.2lbs after a 1400 cal UP and I found out my dressings weigh 3-5lbs. JUDDD DD today.

Since I don't seem to be able to stick to good DD rotations anyway, I think I will try a couple of potato days. Maybe it will kill the eating monster that hides in the back of my mind. It is not hunger, just the need to feed.

I need to get control of the mental part of this or I will never be succesful on any plan. I will start in the morning with youkon gold boiled potatoes and malt vinegar.

Sounds like a good theory to me. You would have thought A doctor somehwere would have picked up on it while I was LC'ing. So glad JUDDD fixed the problem.

You are so right, Sally--the self-sabotage is the real monster to tame! You might want to check out the "why we overeat" thread, if you haven't already. There are so many factors that contribute to this issue, and if you like reading, there's a really good book about the mental part called "Making Peace with Food" by Susan Kano...

Pooti,

Sending you a hug.

I saw your picture on Facebook. That dressing is wicked! I certainly hope it helps. I go to therapy at least 3 days a week trying to get some use out of my hand that was so badly broken. It swells all the time so has to be wrapped, but nothing like what you are going through.
