my grandfather had alzheimer's disease, I am sorry about your mother, i know that must have been very difficult My father always worried he would develop it, he didn't say much about it, but I could tell. He is 76 now, and has had no signs whatsoever of anything like that

Congratulations everyone on your NSVs. And Dawn I can't wait to see picutres, congratulations!

My jeans are sagging so badly, I need a belt. We have casual Friday's, so I usually wear jeans. Today was not pretty with me hitching up my pants every few steps! Thinking about buying some 529 Levi's (curvy) in a 14...wondering if the price is worth it for a few months of wear. However, I will wear the hell out of them.

My mother has mild dementia. She is 90 yo though. She was fine mentally until about 3 years ago, soon after my father passed away. So, I guess it is mainly due to age. It was shocking at first when she wouldn't remember simple things, or said something that didn't make any sense, but she is happy for the most part, so I am thankful for that. A couple of weeks ago she called me at work and said she was at my house. She was so excited and happy and told me not to worry about cooking dinner because she had already eaten, and not to worry about how the house looked because it looked great to her. Bless her heart, she was in her own room at the nursing home.

That is sad Cindy, that was such a sweet thing she said to you. I am very scared about seeing my parents getting older, they are the world to me. That is good she is happy most of the time..

I will link the recipe here in a little bit so you can have it when you want it! I want your broccoli casserole recipe, I couldn't find the thread where you mentioned it again so I could tell you, yes! I would love to trade recipes!

I worked in SNF and ALF for years, and I learned so so much from my elderly patients. Some on them made such an impression on me! One of the ladies, Bertie was 96, she was amazing. She had broken her hip because she fell while she was mowing her lawn! She was upset because after her hip surgery, she had a few wrinkles on her legs that had never been there before. Lol

Isn't it a little strange how vain people continue to be even in very old age? My mom is still upset about gaining some weight because she is confined to a wheelchair. She was always slim (117-124 after 7 children!), and now she's probably 10 lbs heavier than her highest weight.

Sorry to threadjack but for anyone worried about alzheimer's or parkinson's disease, coconut oil is supposed to help and may even reverse the progression of these diseases.
Quote:
Here's how it appears the coconut oil works. In patients with Alzheimer's, insulin resistance prevents their brain cells from accepting glucose, their primary fuel. Without it, the cells die.

But there is an alternate fuel known as ketones, which cells easily accept. Ketones are metabolized in the liver after eating coconut oil.
Insulin resistance doesn't just affect people with Alzheimer's but also folks with dementia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson's, ALS, even autism.

So can coconut oil help these people, too? It appears so, at least some of them.
http://http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/he...-coconut-oil-/

Just do a search of the disease and coconut oil and there's a lot of information out there now about this...

Another couple NSVs today!

I bought another pair of size 8 jeans in a different brand, and they fit great for the first little bit, but are actually a little baggy now that I've had them on all day. That's 8L in both Levi's and Vanderbilt now, so I guess it's not a fluke! DH wants me to go back and try on size 6, but I'm askeered!

Then, we were at a party this afternoon, and I skipped the pizza and loaded up on salad because I knew I'd be having cake, etc. from the dessert table. When I sat down with my salad, a woman I just met commented that I should eat some pizza and "put some meat on those bones!" I thought that was hilarious!

If only they knew hey? Go try the 6s, we want that for you so much Dawn.

I had a sort of NSV yesterday afternoon. I was sitting in the cold sunshine, (we have had an unusually bitter Spring and it was so great to feel the sun) enjoying a cup of tea and a slice of lemon polenta cake. It struck me that my life has been truly improved since I started JUDDDing.

For so long I had sat in the same cafe while DH enjoyed some simple carb treat and resisted, more than 10 years in fact. It didn't spoil my life of make me actively unhappy but it wasn't always easy.

Now I order a treat if I fancy it, not always and never on an UD of course. But I sat there and realised what freedom I have now. JUDDD truly has improve the quality of my life and health.

I had yet another CE last night, again on a bloody DD! I wear the same outfit for my CEs, because its easy and its been fun watching me shrink in the same outfit. The pants are buttonable without any effort, I can actually button the shirt the entire way up instead of just wearing it over a tank (although I still wear the tank under it).
For yesterday's DD I fasted all day and figured I'd be picky about what I ate at dinner. It ended up being a buffet which made it easier to stick with a plain salad, veggies, only a small piece of beef and some fish, no dessert. I was pretty pleased that the dinner meeting didn't derail my DD. And I was rewarded with a nice whoosh this morning (which technically is no longer an NSV but it validates the NSV)!
Yay for shrinking

Then, they got better, woo. Today? I was like, slip them right on, and oh? are these control top? huh, hardly notice, just feel like these are, you know, leggings.
Love that feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am wearing a 1x instead of a tight 2x in shirts, and have gone down a size 1/2 or so in jeans

Here are some pics of my progress. I was kind of shocked to see the 'before' ..what a difference 34# makes! I know the first is hard to compare to, but i'll get different camping pictures this year, then we can all see!

Thanks for your encouragement and joy when I feel joy! It's such a wonderful gift from my JBs!!

Here's the coconut cake recipe
1 basic yellow cake mix
1 (16 oz.) sour cream
1c. sugar
3 c. coconut
1 lg. whipped topping
Bake cake according to directions on box in 2 round cake pans. Cut each cake into 2 layers making a total of 4 layers(you can use dental floss to do this). Cool. Mix sour cream, sugar, and 1.5 cup coconut together and divide into 2 equal parts. Use 1/2 of this mixture as filling between layers. Add the rest of the coconut and the whipped topping to the other half of the mixture and use as icing on top and sides of cake. And then refrigerate for 48 hours.

Ooooh! I just had a NSV!

I present at this work conference every year... this year, I'm also doing 2 days of pre-conference training, as part of the Training team. Looks like they are considering ordering team polo/collared style t-shirts.

The organizer wanted to know what size we'd wear

normally, I'd order a 2x and hope it wasn't tight (these are supposedly "unisex", or maybe even a 3x b/c I hate to be uncomfortable.

Today, I answered her with 2x... because I'm confident that no matter how it's made, it will fit! It'll probably be a bit big even

Then, they got better, woo. Today? I was like, slip them right on, and oh? are these control top? huh, hardly notice, just feel like these are, you know, leggings.
Yeah! Slip 'em right on! Woohoo!

Oh Cindy, I have those Levis 529 size 14s hanging in my closet right now, cheering me on, egging me on, tantalizing me (some days taunting and terrorizing me). It'll be awhile for me, but I can't wait. I say, get them, and feel great knowing how great you look!

Then, we were at a party this afternoon, and I skipped the pizza and loaded up on salad because I knew I'd be having cake, etc. from the dessert table. When I sat down with my salad, a woman I just met commented that I should eat some pizza and "put some meat on those bones!" I thought that was hilarious!
No be askeered! Get those 6s on and strut! What a wonderful thing to have that woman tell you that. Yes indeed, if she only knew!

For so long I had sat in the same cafe while DH enjoyed some simple carb treat and resisted, more than 10 years in fact. It didn't spoil my life of make me actively unhappy but it wasn't always easy.

Now I order a treat if I fancy it, not always and never on an UD of course. But I sat there and realised what freedom I have now. JUDDD truly has improve the quality of my life and health.
That's a beautiful thing Cindy. Enjoying life. Without guilt. Wonderful!

Here are some pics of my progress. I was kind of shocked to see the 'before' ..what a difference 34# makes! I know the first is hard to compare to, but i'll get different camping pictures this year, then we can all see!

Thanks for your encouragement and joy when I feel joy! It's such a wonderful gift from my JBs!!
You look wonderful Deb! What a difference! Smaller sizes are so much fun!

I present at this work conference every year... this year, I'm also doing 2 days of pre-conference training, as part of the Training team. Looks like they are considering ordering team polo/collared style t-shirts.

The organizer wanted to know what size we'd wear

normally, I'd order a 2x and hope it wasn't tight (these are supposedly "unisex", or maybe even a 3x b/c I hate to be uncomfortable.

Today, I answered her with 2x... because I'm confident that no matter how it's made, it will fit! It'll probably be a bit big even

S.
Yesss! I love this. I've had similar challenges with work. Oh, let's get t-shirts! Oh, let's all wear matching oxford shirts! Not so easy when 3x barely fits, or they get men's cut which wouldn't even have a chance around my hips! Next year, you'll be telling her L or M!

I just realized that some more of my clothes are WAAYYYYY too big on me, and I'm going to have to donate them! A bunch of casual knit capris are in danger of falling down , and a shirt I really, really love, which fit nicely a couple of weeks ago, is now loose. I'm going to keep wearing it, because it doesn't look bad, it just doesn't show my losses as well as some newer tops that fit a little closer. Wow, I just can't believe I'm getting this much smaller. My head needs to catch up!

Congratulations on all of the shrinking JUDDD'ers. Isn't it wonderful to be going down down down in sizes? I haven't lost pounds but the size 8 pants and top I wore yesterday was getting a tad loose. Especially the top. It kind of just hung there. So I am waiting for another drop on the scale soon since that usually follows.
I am wearing size 6 jeans so it stands to reason all of my closets full of 8's are going to be getting too large. I went hog wild years ago when I lost a bunch of weight and bought a very large wardrobe that I will never get around to wearing but I am trying. Something different most everyday except for a few favorite things before they are too big to wear and must go.
My smallest knit summer pullover is too big. I wore it last Saturday anyway and I have to put it away. I will have to pick up a few of those for summer regardless.

We should have a sewing 101 webinar for all the JUDDers who need to "take in" their too big favorite clothing!

I had an NSV today that really made me smile. I met a client (who is also a friend) and we said our hellos, then he hugged me, and then he exclaimed, "YOU'VE LOST WEIGHT!!!" Not the wishy washy "Have you been losing weight?" question. It was really nice to be able to answer back, "Yes, thank you, I have!".
