November Daily Chat
 
Hi JUDDD Buds- let's get chatting...

I'll start- sitting here in my suit getting ready to leave for court.
I'll try to keep you posted (I testify for the Grand Jury today).

Sonica 11-01-2013 05:31 AM

Happy November!

Good luck today Carly

TOM showed up yesterday, surprisingly no hunger with it. Today is an UD, and i'm going to go visit family out of town so I'm going to try to make tomorrow a DD, at the worst I'll make it a MD.

Actionsmash 11-01-2013 05:35 AM

Hi made it through October, was actually surprised it went so easy and fast. Loving JUDDD:)

Flutter 11-01-2013 06:06 AM

Yay for loving Juddd!!!!

Howdy peeps! Happy Nov!!!

Carly, good luck girl!

Carly 11-01-2013 06:08 AM

I'm here in the federal court house waiting to meet with DA.

rms123 11-01-2013 06:11 AM

Carly, best wishes for today. As someone who testifies fairly frequently (though on mundane issues), I know what an experience it can be. [I rarely ever post, but read everyday, so feel like I "know" you and the other regulars:)]

Goner 11-01-2013 06:23 AM

Yes Happy November - already! I feel like October flew by.

Actionsmash - yes... JUDDD love here also. I can't believe it's my 6 month annniversary - just noticed. Here's to another 6!

KeirasMom 11-01-2013 07:27 AM

Good luck, Carly. DH often has to testify. It can be boring or super stressful. I know your situation falls in the second category. :hugs:

Babsbabs 11-01-2013 07:45 AM

I hope your day isn't too stressful Carly. I am having a quiet day here without a lot I have to get done. I need to plan some stuff as today is a DD that I want to keep low and free time isn't my friend for that. I will be checking in here often as it helps so much with my motivation to stay on track! I hope all of you have a great day.:)
Happy 6 month JUDDD anniversary Goner! It is amazing how this way of eating is easy to stick with for the long term.

LiLi914 11-01-2013 08:15 AM

Good Luck Carly!

Congrats Goner! Here's to another six months.

Melinda, I love your new avi.

mmorlock 11-01-2013 08:17 AM

Happy November!! This is my 5th day on the JUDDD plan. I needed something to kickstart my motivation because I have been stuck in a low carb rut for two years, bouncing between 145 & 155. More like maintaining I should say.. unintentionally. I've found with JUDDD, I have focus and I want to make the most out of my DDs and UDs, and I've never tracked or planned so carefully. Love how I don't feel deprived on my DDs because I know I can eat more the next day!

LoCarbGal 11-01-2013 08:57 AM

Wow, November already!

Carly, good luck in court today. I know that is nerve wracking and such a stressful situation.:hugs:

Goner - HAPPY 6 MONTH JUDDDiversary! :jumpjoy:

Welcome to our newcomers. I love JUDDD so much, I'm always glad when new people discover it and love it too!

Melinda - love your Halloween avi! ;)

JoLi 11-01-2013 09:34 AM

Birthday weekend. Today is an upday, good thing, because my nieces are cooking me dinner. We are traveling to Dallas to see my dd as well. She wasn't able to take her winter clothes with her back to school so we are going to drop those off as well. Not sure how the weekend will go, but I don't think we will be weighing this week. LOL

teeingoff17 11-01-2013 09:36 AM

Happy November! I was very disappointed to see Starbucks had already transitioned from normal cups to Christmas cups yesterday, and it was only Halloween. I AM NOT READY FOR CHRISTMAS YET!!!!!! Or maybe I am just not ready for the cold. I hate winter. But I love Wisconsin...maybe it will be mild...or not...

mafiamom 11-01-2013 09:47 AM

Had my friends over for breakfast. Starting my UD with a bang :-)

Tomorrow we go to a friends house for a cookout, going to try to make that a MD and Sunday a DD so next Friday is an UD (another friends birthday). Ugh! I need to stop seeing friends, they're ruining my waistline ;)

Only lost 1lb this week. My two UD in a row got me!

If I may ask, what are you testifying about?

LiLi914 11-01-2013 09:56 AM

I love winter and Christmas, but I hate how commercialized everything has become. There's no reason to rush the holiday or season before another one ends. It's supposed to be 70 degrees here today which is absolutely ridiculous when you see Christmas cups and trees in every store.

mafiamom 11-01-2013 10:02 AM

70 here too. Can't remember the last time it was in the 70's in November! (PA)

Goner 11-01-2013 10:02 AM

Yes the warm temps today in NJ are crazy for November - we're expecting 72.

Thanks for the well wishes for my 6 months! I can't believe how "easy" it's been - but that's probably because I've only been "dieting" for 3 months of that time! WHOO HOO JUDDD ROCKS!

Carly 11-01-2013 02:39 PM

Indicted!
Like I said in my journal- one can't really feel good about it, but I believe the 23 Grand Jurors made the right decision.

The ADA said the trial will start in January so I can probably avoid court rooms until 2014.

The other case goes to the Grand Jury on 11/13. I have not been subpoenaed as of yet to testify in that case and I know they already subpoenaed one of our psychiatrists and 2 of our clients so I feel cautiously optimistic that I won't be called. That ADA who is prosecuting that case came down to the Grand Jury waiting area to speak with me for a few minutes today. <sigh>

Flutter 11-01-2013 02:46 PM

Thanks Lisa & LCG! Gonna have to get my old turkey avi up soon, though! <gobble> <gobble>

Goner, happy 6th months girl!!! :heart:

Carly, I'm glad things went the way you hoped and yay for not hearing anything about the upcoming cases! Sounds like I'm going to have to find the journal area over here and try to keep up. (good luck with that, Melinda...) {sigh}

mafia, I wouldn't worry too much about the schedule changes, you'll do fine! Juddd is great like that...not to mention, you are already TEENIE from that new avi picture you have up! Just lovely!

teeing, this cracked me up But I love Wisconsin...maybe it will be mild...or not... <snort> I think it's going to be ridiculously yucky & cold for us Midwesterners this winter...but I will niavely hope along with you!!!

This case was regarding one of the therapists that was an employee of our agency that was accused (now indicted) for raping one of our clients (yup, I'm serious as a heart attack)

The other case going to Grand Jury is a result of the NRPD shooting and killing one of our clients. (Yeah, work has been stressful).

Imagine having to testify on the stand for 35 minutes about it :sick:

Flossyliz 11-02-2013 06:42 AM

Tough day Carly! Glad it's over for you and the future's looking more promising.

Nothing makes me sicker than those in helping professions hurting others. It's bad enough ANYONE does it. {sigh} I am so sorry, Carly. I would have wanted to be all vigilante on him/her. I'm glad your part is over sweetie!!

mafiamom 11-02-2013 08:25 AM

Oh how horrible for you! Glad that part is over. How stressful :( and that POOR WOMAN! That is just so horrific.

Um... until the trial starts in 2014. The Grand Jury indicted him with the charge of rape, but if he does not accept a plea it will go to trial and then I will just have to testify more, but yes- I feel way worse for the victim and I would like to get all vigilante on his a$$, but my testimony will have to suffice.

Flutter 11-02-2013 10:59 AM

:( :( :(

Librarygirl 11-02-2013 03:51 PM

I'm having a bit of a pity party here. For one thing, I lost my LC mojo, and for another I'm on my 3rd UD and I just can't think of when I'll go back to rotations. No later than Monday, of course, but possibly not tomorrow. And, today I was in a tiny store at the flea market and it was so crowded I was bumping into a woman behind me...I said, excuse me, and she said, we can both fit in here, we're not big. But she was big, and I saw myself in a floor length mirror right after she said that, and I looked like a barrel. Ugh, just when I thought I was starting to look all hot. :D

Wow, you have had to deal with some terrible things lately.:console: It's hard to believe what people are capable of, and especially those we look up to and trust.:annoyed: I hope he gets the maximum.
