Oops - 4 day food fest

Well the last four days have been a family, friends and food fest. No regrets. I had a blast, ate everything and anything I wanted. Sipped fine wine in restaurants with a decadent pasta dinner and drank sugary drinks on the beach, grilled ribs and ate ice cream and had birthday cake (lots of it) with DH. So four days when I ate without regard to the nutritional or scale impact. Kind of like I envision that "normal" people exist without obsessing about every ounce of food intake. I am staying off the scale for a while and will get right back on track tomorrow. Hopefully I can face the scale in a week without wincing!!!

How did you do on the holiday weekend? Better than I did - I am sure LOL!!!

Start Date: Original start date 3/03 - Atkins
My kids got out of school on Friday and my middle daughter had recital this weekend (she's a competitive dancer) - so we were sooooo busy. I barely had time to scarf my UD calories on Thursday and Saturday - so darn busy.

I was worried about getting through yesterday on my 200-ish calories because I had to work the recital from 8:30 am until almost 10pm last night. I did get very hungry and ate over my calories (by 150), but I still woke up to a 1 lb loss today. UD today, so I'm saving all my calories for tonight. We're doing fajitas on the grill.

Good for you, a taste of normal life! The best thing is that if you are up a bit on the scale, a few DDs will solve that problem!!

Today was my first DD that turned in to an UD because of desserts at a holiday party. I can relate! I am glad you had fun and as yennie said, a few DDs will take care of any artificial gains!!!

I did nothing but eat this holiday weekend! Ate a big breakfast, BBQ for lunch with cake and all the fixings. Took a long nap, woke up and ate some more! Looking forward to tomorrow's DD to help take care of this. Will probably not step on the scale for a few of those because I think it'd be depressing.

I absolutely went overboard yesterday! It made me mad because I did fine all day, then had 2 glasses of wine and that was it for me. I had to have spoonfuls of peanut butter, and a fudgesicle, and some nutella, and strawberries. But today I wasn't hungry AT ALL. Not all day. That never happens. I've learned to ignore my hunger, but I have it, at least some moments during DDs. I closed the day out at 266 calories today - the lowest I've ever gone. So I'm hoping that atoned for some of my sins yesterday. At any rate, just getting back on normal rotations will do the trick over the next several days.

But, see, that's perfect evidence for the argument of going into your DDs well nourished! Not that I'm advocating wine & strawberries & peanut butter on every UD (Ha! Yes I am! If only!!!) but you fed yourself well, and had a hunger-free DD as a result.
Something good came from it. As you say, onward & downward!!

I went overboard 3 days in a row! 2 of them were DDs... and I ate pretty much nothing, and then ate up all my calories and then some at dinner. I enjoyed some things I haven't had in a long time though! And spending time with family is always good!

Fortunately, the scale damage this morning isn't too bad! As long as I get right back on good rotations I think it will all work out. Only 2 weeks until my Florida vacation, and I don't plan on counting ANYTHING while I'm there!

My parents dropped in for an impromptu visit on Friday. So I too had four days of food bliss. We went out, baked, and drank. Kinda funny that my weekends are usually very lazy and uneventful, since starting JUDDD three weeks ago two of those weekends have been crazy. So today is a new day and I'm back to rotating.

Beach picnic yesterday - ate more than I should have, particularly some carby food that I'm not used to (potato salad, tortilla chips, bun for bratwurst) ... Up a pound this morning but am doing a DD today. I managed to turn down sugary drinks ( frozen margaritas) and cake - they didn't seem all that appealing, guess I was full by then ... I am working on recognizing hunger vs. appetite, not as easy as it ought to be ...

Hunger vs appetite - it's the eternal question for me too, Bonnie. I've learned a lot about appetite since JUDDDing, but it still creeps up on me from time to time. I imagine it will be a lifelong thing I have to remind myself of. But as my mom always says "If that's the worst thing you have to deal with, then count yourself lucky!" Yes, Mom....

I have been trying to get back into rotations ever since my 4 day food fest, but I haven't had a successful DD since last Thursday. I was doing well yesterday, but then I got some bad financial news, so decided to drown my sorrows in a bottle of wine. And ice cream. TOM is also right around the corner, so I've been having ridiculous carb cravings. Needless to say, yesterday was not a good DD. I'm trying again today; I really hope this one sticks.

Has anyone else had a long weekend like that throw their JUDDDing off? My plan is to get back on my rotations again by Sunday since it will be a normal 2 day weekend. It's just frustrating, I feel like such a failure, and the scale is telling me that too

I always think we're our own worst enemies when it comes to belittling ourselves. A failure you are NOT! It's exactly at the times when we derail for whatever reason, that we need to treat ourselves with kindness and love. If a BFF told you she went off her eating plan for a few days would you call her a failure? Please don't do it to yourself. Brush yourself off and think positive! It works!

My memorial day weekend turned into memorial day WEEK. Getting back on the wagon today...damage on the scale is bad, but hopefully its mostly just water weight. I doubt I ate over 25,000 calories in a week

ugh - struggling today again. Had a nasty client encounter and I headed straight to the chocolate!! I did great on Tues and OK on Wed. Maybe I can salvage today by stopping eating by mid afternoon and making it an IF window at least. Just not feeling it this week ....

4 days isnt bad. I just had 16 days of total over indulgence!!! Yeah, yeah, I was on an amazing trip of a lifetime, but did I over do it or what! But luckily am only up a few lbs. I think because we walked exhaustively everyday (touring Europe and Russia). It took me a good 4 days after getting back to get back into rotations. And I'm not gonna lie, a root canal the other day is probably what helped me easily get back into DD's. It's hard when we overindulge but I will say for me it's a lot easier than going back to strict low carb and dealing with Atkins flu and the cravings that come with that.

I only went to one bbq on Sunday before Memorial day but the rest of the weekend I was just not very careful about what I ate. I don't know why holidays make us think it's ok to stretch them out to a whole weekend/week LOLOL I had 1 good DD and 2 MDs with the rest IHNID (I have no idea days hahahaha). I still lost about half a pound at weigh in yesterday but obviously I could have done better.

If you don't mind, please post what you think about your Fitbit. I'm tempted but I don't want to pay the monthly fee that comes with those programs. Unless yours doesn't in which case I'd love to hear about it! I have a Garmin (no HR monitor though, its old school, like 2006) and Nike Run on my SmartPhone - all great for distances, times, etc but I'd love something that actually monitors ME!
I have a friend with a BodyBug and she is a very frugal friend. But she thinks its worth it to pay the fee for the info so maybe I need to suck it up and do it. UG!

I'm interest too. I have 2 pedometers, but I don't even think they even accurately count steps

Thanks, I'm super interested. I want the calories burned more than anything else. I think it would be interesting to know that, and calculate cals in/cals out and see how that corresponds to weight loss, etc.
So I'll be interested in knowing if you can get that info off it without paying for it. I can work Excel and make me a mean spreadsheet all by my lonesome...I don't need to pay someone $10/month to generate a fancy pants graph for me.
Which style did you get?

Well, it came in the mail today! They sure named it right. The FitBit is a TINY BIT OF A THING LOOL I thought it would be bigger. I have it clipped to my bra right now and am downloading the account set up to sync my information to the computer. There is no charge for this! I will let you know how it goes using it today. I am not a techie so I might have my hubby help me later when he gets home!

All the main features are free. They do have a premium service. I don't remember what it was about, I just remember I didn't think it was worth it. It was some sort of trainer or something. I have the Ultra(old model) and love it. Only thing I don't like is that it has to be plugged into the computer to charge and sync. The new models are capable of syncing wirelessly thru Bluetooth.. I just ordered the Zip this morning so I can sync with my iphone and ipad wirelessly plus it uses a replacable(4-6 months) battery so it doesn't need a computer at all. I very rarely even turn my computer on anymore except to sync the Ultra.

There are a couple of websites(earndit & everymove) that u can also sync with the fitbits and other various pedometers and earn points towards rewards or charitable donations.

CR2025 looks like $1-$2 bucks.


The zip doesn't do sleep or stairs but I found I didn't use those features anyways.
