I didn't do so well on my DD today. I was feeling nauseous, and maybe it was the OTC pain meds. Anyway, I ate a bowl of soup and thought that would help. 2 hours later, just now, I had some peanut butter and cookies. Still feel bad, but I hope some rest helps. I had high hopes that I would end the day at around 300, but oh well.

Well... I won't be doing a banana in my shake again... It made my tummy hurt and I've had the worst burps! UUUGH!

I also got around to looking at the back of my Slimfast can....UHHHH

Can we say 22 SUGARS?!?!?!?!?! I ran to Walmart and got my self some whey protein powder! It's got 170 cals 2 sugars and 30 grams of protein! I'm working on getting some powdered peanut butter! Any suggestions?

Yes, those powders sometimes have a LOT of sugar. I use Nectar protein powder and there are 0 sugars and 0 carbs!! I just put a few drops of stevia in my shake to make it sweet but sometimes really ripe fruit will do that if you want to add some.

Thanks, Flutter and Sirtain. I was so disheartened this morning after weighing, I went for my morning walk and burst into tears lol. It seems like I'm at my starting weight or higher of two months ago. I feel like I'm trying so hard, yet treading water against a raging river. It's tough to stick to WL day after day, month after month, and try and live life normally as well sometimes.

Carol, that's a great victory! I'm proud of you!

Cindy, you know the scale is not going to be kind because of the inflammation from your fall. It'll come back down. I'm sorry you're hurting.

Oooh yea, Dawn makes a VERY good point about the inflammation from your fall, LG. Of course the scale would be up! Hang in there girl, I know what you're talking about with the day in/out thing. I am much less restless with THIS kind of day in/out than I was on any other plan, though. You are just shy of a year chiquita!! You're doing GREAT!!!!!!!!! Look at your new avi picture and how thin your face is! You are rocking this!!!

I'm doing pretty darn good today!! =) I'm down 3 lbs from yesterday! WAHOO!

I really relate to LG and her struggles and disappointment! The best part of JUDDD or any diet(really) is tomorrow is another day! Just do your best, and be ok when your best doesn't align with how well you think you should be doing! =)

As a perfectionist these are important words to live by. Sometimes what I expect of myself and what is realistic are not well aligned.

If we are truly giving something are best shot- that has to be it's own victory sometimes.

Sometimes it's hard to get on that scale and think that tomorrow will be better. I think just keep reminding myself how far I've come and creating mini goals for myself. Keeps me sane!

I wanted to repost this in here! =)

Is it sad that I'm excited that tomorrow is my dd? There is something SO freeing about the fact that I don't have to worry about food choices or cals.... I'm having my shakes and making my family dinner(which is preplanned). Soo tickled! I also know that (well let me say HOPE that) at the end of my dds I might be a little lighter than I was the day before. =D

Not weird at all Rebecca. UD 's can be exhausting especially when they're not planned out. Enjoy your DD tomorrow.

I sure do hope it's inflammation because I've regressed about 4 months back with WL. I think LC might have made me more carb sensitive or something. I'm not really eating any differently.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Everything is fine and the stress is gone, and I had a really good weekend right on plan.

Cindy, you have NOT regressed 4 months! No no no no! It is the injury, inflammation, stress, and water retention all ganging up against you. Just keep on keeping on, GF, and that weight will fall back off and you'll be off and running again.

Rebecca, I don't think it's weird at all. I can't say I exactly ever look forward to DDs, but I do have DDs where I feel so great, and know that this is what makes the fat burn off, and that makes me very happy. Plus it IS freeing not to have to think as hard about what to eat all day.

I almost always look forward to DDs — but I don’t go as low as the JUDDD numbers. After a DD, I look forward to the UD afterwards as well!

Hey everyone! =D

I had my Whey Protein shake instead of my Slimfast. It was delicious! =) I'm full, so that's a good sign! =)

I'm glad your stress has waned, and that you had a good weekend.

I almost wish I had joined you in the no-weigh November, because I am freaking out about this almost 6 lb gain. It sounds nice to attribute it to inflammation or *anything* other than real lbs gained from *really* eating too much. I'm so scared that it's just going to take that much longer to get 5 more lbs off--for me about 3 more months. I don't know what to do, I'm so upset about it. I don't need a pick-me-up talk or encouragement, although I really appreciate everyone's help. I'm just disgusted with myself right now.

ETA: One good thing is that I'm not flying out of my "new" clothes without hardly getting a chance to wear them lol.

Well, I won't give you a "pick-me-up" talk, but I'll give you a and say... Sometimes we actually have to get really sick and tired with ourselves in order to make big changes (if that's what we actually need to do.)

On February 21st, 2012 I was so sick and disgusted with myself about gaining the weight that I was fully ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight and keep it off.

I was really in a dark place. I was ashamed and my self esteem was in the toilet. I hear you... I did not need a pick me up. I needed to seize my moment of desperation and let it motivate me to make a serious change. I was seriously overweight. I had diabetes. I was fatigued all the time and embarrassed about my appearance.

That desperation propelled me to change one day at a time. You probably know about my sleepwalk eating and all that mess. I had to empty the pantries and go to the store daily- I still keep next to nothing in the fridge or cabinets. I was willing to go to any lengths.

I know you can do it too! We are all awesomely powerful ladies (and gents).
I'm gonna give you some more hugs, but I'm also going to say that you can change what you can and then let go of what you can't.

Carly! Not just good. Awesome!!! What can you add to that?

I just wanted you all to know that people annoy me.

Today at work we were trying to figure out who was going to provide group coverage for a coworker who is starting Paternity Leave Wednesday. I stated that I didn't feel comfortable running his Health & Fitness groups, but of course I'm the only one free during those times. One out of our two leadership members says "Why wouldn't you? Aren't you going through your own transformation?" I just gave her the blank stare as though I had no clue as to what she was talking about. Both members of the leadership team have never said a word to me. They've gone as far as to compliment a really insecure coworker of mine at staff meetings in front of everyone, who lost 15 pounds and who has since started to gain it all back, but neither has never said a word to me. Now all of a sudden I'd be perfect for that group and I "could impart my story on them."

I don't like to think of myself as a violent person, but I legit could have punched someone in the face today. I don't even know why it bugs me and I know I'm being overly sensitive, but since I couldn't tell her to Bite me I'm saying it here. Grrrrr.

You wanted to punch someone because they're only mentioning your own transformation to get you to do what they want you to do. I totally get it. I would have wanted to kick someone in their kneecaps.

Lisa- no, seriously! I'm telling you you are taking it the wrong way! I really think that L and Z meant that as a compliment and like why the heck couldn't you do it cause you are rocking your own health and weight loss.

GF- it's that tooth talking!!!! Take over those health and wellness groups and show them what you've got!!!!!!

Exactly Dawn! That is how I took it and of course my coworkers sent texts last night and had the same thought.

Carly, if I didn't work in that department I'd agree with you. I think my rose colored glasses have been stepped on one too many times lately and I just can't do the benefit of the doubt anymore. I'm going to end up having to run the group anyway and I'll make it work.

I guess my other issue is I'm not big on self-disclosure within groups and I don't especially want to discuss my "transformation" with the clients since we've been working hard at helping our clients develop boundaries. So yeah good thing is we have curriculum and I'll just stick to it.

On February 21st, 2012 I was so sick and disgusted with myself about gaining the weight that I was fully ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight and keep it off.

I was really in a dark place. I was ashamed and my self esteem was in the toilet. I hear you... I did not need a pick me up. I needed to seize my moment of desperation and let it motivate me to make a serious change. I was seriously overweight. I had diabetes. I was fatigued all the time and embarrassed about my appearance.

That desperation propelled me to change one day at a time. You probably know about my sleepwalk eating and all that mess. I had to empty the pantries and go to the store daily- I still keep next to nothing in the fridge or cabinets. I was willing to go to any lengths.

I know you can do it too! We are all awesomely powerful ladies (and gents).
I'm gonna give you some more hugs, but I'm also going to say that you can change what you can and then let go of what you can't.
Thanks, CarlyI did reach that point, and that's why I've been trying for a year to change my life. I wish I could have the steely strength of some of you and never waver in my plan, but I did and I do. It's just going to take some *more* strength and resolve to get me back on track. With all of my JBs support here every day, it shouldn't take long.

Agreed! What jerks to only mention your hard work when it suits them. Maybe you should suggest that since you have already begun your "own transformation" it might be helpful for someone else to monitor his fitness groups, so that they too can make a change.

I'm not big on self-disclosure and I'm not even suggesting you do that, but the clients aren't blind! They know you have lost weight- whether you tell them or not. They see.

Whether it is at work, home or with friends we lead by example most of the time and we can lead people toward health and wellness that way or lead in less than positive ways. You have an opportunity to lead by example in a really good way right now! Try to think of it that way.

However you feel about the motives behind getting asked is how you feel, but take heart in knowing that you have skills and knowledge and like you said- there is a curriculum so don't sweat it if you can help it.
