Oh! Just noticed that today is my JUDDDiversary
One year ago today I jumped in to JUDDD with a down day and have never looked back. A year ago I was frustrated, having lost just over 100 pounds with first low carb, then when that quit working, with low calorie. I was exercising like a madwoman and eating low calorie and nothing was happening. My losses slowed to a crawl, then stopped altogether.

I started with 500 calorie down days and 1900 up days (or thereabouts, I don't remember exactly). I lost 35 pounds fairly quickly and went into maintaining mode in July. Since then, I have not been counting up days or down days, just rough-estimating down days to keep them nice and low, and keeping up days from becoming up up and away days. I stick strictly to rotations, down day always follows an up day. I don't do medium days or switch up my days.

I eat fairly healthy most days, but do include chips or cake or chocolate on a fairly regular basis. My weight has been very stable on this plan. I recently decided to take off a few more pounds, which is challenging since I don't have a scale where I am, but I'm just watching to see how the jeans look. Shooting for no muffin top and then perhaps a size down. We'll see.

I'm so happy I found this plan and found all of you. You have been instrumental in my success on this plan, and having a place to come to gripe, whine and moan, as well as to support and be supported, is crucial.

I :heart: all of you and I :heart: JUDDD.

Let the next year begin. :yahoo:

Wow Luna! Happy JUDDDiversary! I'm so impressed with anyone who can stay on this kind of plan for that long, especially with all your travels and not being in your own kitchen for quite some time. That is dedication, and look how it has paid off! You're one of my JUDDD heros, girl!

:clap::congrats::clap: You've come a long way Luna! What an incredibly inspirational and transformational journey you've been on. It's so nice to see that you'll be sticking around more in the new year with us JBs!

P.S. I'm considering losing the scale myself and from here on out, just going by how my favorite skinny jeans fit. As the JBs love to say, "The pants don't lie!" :up:

Luna Loca 01-30-2013 09:28 PM

Aw, thanks y'all.

I'm finally back in the same city as my scale, so tomorrow I'll have some idea of what I actually weigh. :laugh: Today's an up day though, so I'm actually going to wait until Friday morning for an official weigh-in.

Hoping for good numbers.

Thank you all for celebrating with me. You all are the best! :heart: :heart: :heart:
