So good to see how well you did on your vacation Andy. I was in St Petersburg at the end of last month, may have passed you there...

This is a really brilliant thread and will be so helpful I am sure.

I'll be cheering you all along your way.

WOW! Were you on Holiday? On a cruise by any chance. How funny if we were there the same time.
This was my first trip there (although I've traveled extensively) and I absolutely fell in love. We spent two days and one night and it was so magical. I am very fond of a book series which takes place in SPB (well Lenningrad as it is WWII). It's one of my favorite fiction books and to see the places I've only dreamed of in my head. Ah, it was too cool. I'm totally obsessed with Russia now.

Hi Scott, was just looking at your signature. Do you still do zero cal DD's? That's awesome if you do. I'm in the camp that I think if I didn't eat anything my DD would be easier because as soon as I do eat, I feel hungry the rest of the day. I try to hold out but my hungry time always comes around 4:00 so that's when I cave. I read about a lot of people here doing total fasts but they seem to be in the "mini-me" camp if you know what I mean. I think I might be able to do it too if I was a fraction of my size. But, maybe that's just an excuse I'm telling myself!

I also prefer "mini goals" and also self rewards

My first mini goal is to stay focused and on plan for 28 days (til June 26th when I am going on vacation), To help me with this I am paying myself:
.25 cents a day if I keep my calories (and carbs) where they should be
$1 every 7 days in a row I keep on track
$5 every 28 days in a row I keep on track

It's only $16 a month but I watch all those quarters filling up a glass jar and it motivates me (and I can't afford more since DH lost his job last year)
Welcome to JUDDD and the 100lb club!

I was also very successful with WW a year or so ago. I was down in the 280's but then my job decided to have me travel 2 weeks out of the month and I found WW to impossible to do when you're eating out and have no clue the stats of the food your eating. With JUDDD, I find it alot easier to just bring my own stuff (shakes, veggies, etc) for my DD's and then not have to stress about where and what I'm eating on my UD's. I don't know, it's like not having to worry about what I'm eating half the time I'm out of town is 1000% easier then trying to find some chain restaurant every single day I'm traveling just so I know the stats and can enter them for WW.

Love your idea! My parents used to pay me for good grades. From grade school up until my post graduate degrees. I guess they figured out early on what motivates me (and it did, I was a GREAT student!) I like this, i might have to think about how I can incorporate some monetary goals into this!

Yup! Still doin it! I feel better on the zero DDs than on UDs. I can't do the low cal DDs. I get hungry if I eat a little. Plus it gives you a bigger calorie deficit!

Hey guys thanks for the warm welcome.

Scott - do you find you lose better on 0 cal DD? or you just handle it better?

To be honest I really can't say. I think I only did two low cal DDs so it's hard to compare. I had been playing around with IF before finding this forum and for the most part I guess I don't really follow the JUDDD model. I like having UDs on my days off so my model is UD UD DD DD UD DD DD then the cycle starts over. I have had really good results doing it this way. It's my favorite forum so I still stick around even though I'm not on the true JUDDD path.

I'm starting to feel like this might be a better course of action for me. I was so busy Friday I inevitably did a zero calorie day. I just forgt to eat and when i Realized I hadn't eaten I wasn't even hungry so I just didn't. This was following some really tough DD's this past week were the only common denominator was that I ate breakfast these days which I never do. Breakfast and i was miserable all day, no food and i went to bed feeling ok. Then again I'm also toying with your idea of doing multiple UDs in a row. Weekends are becoming harder and harder for me to do DD's and I have been wondering if there was a way to twek them and make them work. No way coud I do 2 DDs in a row. That is amazing!
well, food for thought glad to hear your making it work for you!

Hi Everyone, marking my place. Last year I very successfully lost 40+lbs on JUDDD, en started to eat too much (stress eater) and strangely it came back - although it didn't come back quickly at first.

I've just moved back to live in the Middle East from Australia (although I'm British by birth) so can't weigh until my shipment arrives - but sadly I'll have to change my stats!

Today's my second DD in a while - tough cos I got up silly early, but I went shopping for some good DD food yesterday, so should manage the day.

Here's to our success (oh yes, and for those who don't know, I'm Kissa's daughter)

How important do you guys find it is to eat UP to your calories on UD? I got a VERY late start today and no way I can squeeze them all in do I need to try to get in as many as possible or not worry about it?

It's best to try to get as close as possible, but one day here or there won't do any major harm. You just might be hungry on your DD today.

Yes, Meggan, I think that is the point.

It may not be necessary to eat all those calories today, but by 7pm tomorrow evening you may be wishing you had enjoyed a little peanut butter or a glass of wine...or even fruit juice the night before.

Vicky.

Hey Vicky! Those first few DDs really are the hardest, aren't they? But luckily you know first hand how great this WOE can be, plus your mom is a shining star of JUDDD. I hope that helps get you through the beginning stages.

How are things? Well right now, I'm tantalizingly close to Onederland, a fairytale place I haven't visited in a looooong time. I've heard it's magical and wonderful. Seriously though, this will be a major landmark for me, and I'm excited to get there. I'm hoping to be firmly there by the end of this month, with no more bounces into the 200s.

So glad you're back with us! And so, so sorry about the loss of your friend.

Thanks! Sometimes it's difficult to come back, but I need this WOE! Nearly bedtime - and I'm looking forward to tomorrow's up day!

The reason I'm visiting the UK this month is to attend the memorial service of an incredibly dear friend. She unfortunately passed away from a secondary infection in hospital, after she had successfully completed a gastric bypass op (successful in so much as she was up and about afterwards - not successful enough to have stopped her getting two infections, the second of which was fatal).

I often, particularly on a DD, wonder how she could have managed on 500 cals a day for the rest of her life - I hear that something happens when you have the op, and you just don't get hungry - I don't know.

But back to the joy of JUDDD - I'm at 480 cals, I've eaten well & tomorrow I get to eat anything I want! Not to mention the other benefits ...

I love the fact that now, us 100+lb to lose folks have proof that it can be done on JUDDD, it's not just for those who only have a little to lose.

Can you tell I'm feeling slightly euphoric?

You're doing really well! I think knowing what works and cycling different WOE is often a good way to stay on track.

Personally, I love the freedom of JUDDD. You must do whatever works for you. Good luck, and if you want to JUDDD, or not, come and play here.

Hi Vicky! Welcome back and welcome to the club. I think that is exactly why I started this post. I needed to see, for reassurance, that there were others successful in this WOE who were larger or maybe even just like me. At first, the idea of 500 cal was so daunting. Coming off of obviously eating whatever and how much ever I wanted at times, to then eating how much ever I wanted as long as it was low carb, on Atkins, this just seemed... scary. I have my weaknesses, but there is something about this diet that doesn't make me panic anymore like I used too. The thought, just the thought, of having to loose 100 (and more) lbs meant that I was facing at least a YEAR of dieting. And all I could think of was depriving myself for a year. losing out on social functions for a year. Missing out on holidays for a year. And just not being normal for a year. That's what has literally gone through my head everytime I've ever tried to diet. It caused fear and panic which inevitably was too much to handle and I'd cave and fall off the wagon. But JUDDD is so amazing to me because of what it does for me mentally. Weight loss, JUDDD magic, ok yeah all that stuff is great. But this is the first time in my life, where there is no fear stopping me from going forward. I'm not having to deprive myself for a year, it's just a day. I'm not missing out on social events and holidays, I'm missing out on ONE DAY. And if that special day happens to fall on a DD, and if I happen to want to change that, I just do. No harm no foul. Not like when I was on Atkins and ONE DAY meant weeks, or even MONTHS of hard work could be undone. The fear is gone. The wall that has been blocking me for so long is gone. JUDDD makes me feel stronger which gives me more motivation to do it. I still have tough DDs. I had a few really hard days last week. And I totally gave up on JUDDD recently on a 2 week vacation. But, it was ok. It is ok. That's what I am learning. It's hard because we beat ourselves up so much, especially with other plans. Now I have to just tell myself, it's ok.

Anyways, blah blah blah Welcome!!!

Love it! I so totally understand! What I find fascinating about being on these boards- is that it seems we are so not alone in these thoughts - whether we do have 100+lbs to lose or 10lbs - I love reading how my Mum, Kissa, is just starting to come to terms with food as being 'normal'.

I loved Atkins - and the free for all - but you are so right - 1 day and it was all ruined! Here it's just 'oh, okay, so I over ate yesterday - it was planned/or not - but today I can have a great DD!' and there you are- back on track!!!

But, it was ok. It is ok. That's what I am learning. It's hard because we beat ourselves up so much, especially with other plans. Now I have to just tell myself, it's ok.
love this! I think about this a lot. We all have a certain degree of self-discipline and self-control, but for most of us it has its limits. On a traditional diet, not only are you a little hungry most of the time, but you have to say no to lots of things you'd really like to have pretty much most/all of the time until you reach goal. On JUDDD, yes, you have a more severely restricted day every other day, but it becomes no big deal, and then on the up day you can enjoy, and feel satisfied, and participate in what everyone else is doing.

You also learn on JUDDD to gradually adjust your up day calories as you get smaller so that you learn the proper amount for your current size. And it is a plan that is so very flexible and tolerant ... you can do JUDDD in so many ways that will work, or take a vacation and jump right back in and take off any gain fairly quickly usually. It's really amazing.

It's daunting to think about the 500 calories at first, but it really becomes easy peasy most days. So worth it for all the rest of it!

Hi everyone!!

Vicky welcome back. Andy thanks for thinking of this thread!!! Do you guys mind if I join?

I decided it was time to pony-up and weigh. I haven't weighed in the last couple of weeks. I've been half-as8ed JUDDDing and lcing for the past month or two. Have been unable to fully convince myself of the necessity of getting back on track. There was always "Manana". Right?

But the truth is with the cancer I'm now on yet another bugger of a drug, Femara, an anti-cancer drug that blocks estrogen synthesis through the aromatase inhibitor pathway, that causes weight gain(inhaled steroids are the other getchadowner that packs on weight for me). And once it comes on, it's like cement, trying to pry the pounds back off. JUDDD is the only thing that works in conjunction with LC. *sigh*

So I paid the piper this morning and I was down to 218lbs before surgery. This morning I weighed a whopping 261.4lbs after a DD yesterday. I don't want to continue with the excuses, but you I am going to subtract 10lbs for my left arm that has lymphedema in it and the therapist said it's safe to assume I carry 10lbs of fluid in that arm. (So, I will do that mental arithmetic, but still state the number on the scale, lol. It makes me "feel better.")

So that means I have 101lbs to my goal. It's time to get serious about health once more and with JUDDD and you guys, I know it's possible!
