WOE: JUDDD
Returning from lurking

I've been reading but haven't posted for a long time. I haven't done JUDDD for a couple months now.
I've been trying to figure out what's going to work for me. I was having a horrible time sleeping and then I started binging again. I have started sleeping better most of the time but I feel more tired during the day than I have in a long time. I'm planning to get into the doctor soon to recheck my thyroid and see if anything else is going on.
I miss JUDDD and BUDDs
I'm going to try for a dd tomorrow. I really need to get off about 11 lbs. my clothes are all tight. I feel blah. I would love to feel that JUDDD 'magic' again.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who shares their struggles and success's. it helps others more than you know!

I have tears. You all are so sweet! I do think something is off. I just don't feel myself.
Last year at this time I felt better than I ever have. Now I almost feel the worst I ever have.

Welcome back Janette! How lovely to see your smiling face again. I'm so sorry you're feeling yucko. I hope a little time on JUDDD will have you feeling well again, and NOT bring back the sleeping issues.

They can check it with a simple.blood test and if your level is low they can give you an rx for a strong D vitamin. Deficiencies are really common and can cause fatigue, depression, moodiness etc. It's easy to fix though

back Janette. I'm fairly new to JUDDD and loving it. I had lost some weight last year, however about 12 lbs had crept back on and my clothes also started feeling tight so I can relate on the blah feeling when your clothes get tight. Hope you feel better!

Second the Vit D recommendation. I didn't realize it was testable until I was pregnant & they checked it. I was low, which shocked me as I had it checked in September and I'm outside A LOT during the summer (and, bad me, don't really use sunscreen).
Anyway, its pretty easy to do and a relatively easy fix. I hope, whatever it does turn out to be, you get to the bottom of it quickly & easily.
Welcome back!

I can relate.........

I've been lurking as well and had been using JUDDD in the fall. I also had a difficult time with binging and went off plan. Last week I read about the 5/2 Fasting plan and am trying that as an attempt to get myself back together. I am using Monday and Thursday as fasting days (eating about 400 cal worth of protein) and eating "sensibly" on the other days. So far it has been much, much easier for me. My mindset has been more manageable and I'm happy with it for now. Good luck as you try and get back on what works for you!

Janette!

It's nice to see your smile around here again.

I'm in agreement that low Vit. D may be possible cause of your fatigue. I also tend to run low myself over the winter and suffer with SAD (seasonal affect disorder), so I usually need mega doses of the stuff a couple times a year. Hope you find relief soon!

Also, since switching from JUDDD to 5:2 my energy level and over all well-being, peace of mind & emotional stability is much better = no more binging episodes!

Best wishes for your good health!
Ann

Janette how lovely to have you back. Please keep us posted on how your tests go, it is so horrid feeling blah all the time. I really hope they can get to the bottom of the problem.

Perhaps you can get some of that 'Old Juddd Magic that you knew so well,' back.

Welcome back home.
One of the nicest things about intermittent fasting for me is that even if you aren't doing rotations regularly, it fits right back into daily life with no notice, no special needs, no "I have to wait until Mondays", or other nonsense that I used to feed myself. And being able to start a new "diet" phase with an up day is awfully pain free

WOE: JUDDD
So far I feel hungry this morning. I didn't really eat a lot yesterday but I'm sure it was enough. I just have to work myself back into DDs. Maybe I'll start this week with the 5:2 and see if it does anything weight wise. For those of you doing 5:2, do you still get the JUDDD calm(magic)?

I'll be going to the dr in April. I'm considering trying 5 htp. Has anyone tried that before?

Thank you for all your thoughts. I feel so lucky to 'know' such nice people!

I am doing 5:2 for maintenance, and haven't noticed any difference in my level of calm, not that I'm all that calm anyway.

I tried 5HTP years ago for mood, and it didn't do anything for me, but I also don't notice anything from Pterostilbene or Resveratrol. I think I may metabolize supplements differently than others do.

Vit D deficiencies are pretty common. I used to be low in Vit D and started taking it and my mood improves when I take it regularly. An easy thing to do is pick some up at the grocery, try it and see if you notice an improvement.

Hope you find out how to fix this issue and get to feeling better soon

Thank you for your suggestions ladies

Do you know then if its safe to take vitamin D supplement without knowing for sure that its low? Can you get TOO much? My appt isn't until April but if its safe then I'll buy some and give it a try. Any recommendation for brand and amount? I see its in my multi vitamin and the hair/nail supplement I take but it doesn't seem like much.
Thank You

I'm already starting to feel happier because the sun has been out for a few days now. This was a very hard winter for me. I hope someday we can move somewhere that has sun many more days! Even when there is sun here there is smog a lot of the time.

I'm pretty sure if you take the dose recommended on the Vitamin D bottle you will be fine. If you are still deficient you with just get a higher dose from your MD maybe in the form of a rx.
