And it's time for my cyclical acne to appear, but there's no sign of it.

Is that enough after 4 days? Wild, eh?
If that's just 4 days, I can't wait to hear all about the NSVs that follow!

That is GONE!

Shoulder pain 90% GONE
Hip pain 99% GONE

Funny thing though, I've had a new pain flair up just last week - an elbow. Never had that before - hoping it isn't tennis elbow... it kind of comes and goes
Hopefully the new pain will follow in the old ones' footsteps and leave now!

Last night I went to a friend's party and saw an old friend that I haven't seen in probably going on 2 years. She knew I had been losing weight because of our mutual friend, so she wasn't surprised, but all evening she kept calling me "skinny" and telling me how good I looked. She asked me what I've been doing, and if I was maintaining okay. I told her I am still losing and she said "You ARE? Why???" That made me feel awfully good, although I really do have a way to go.

Then today my next door neighbor, who I've known for 15 years and he's seen me at my high and low weights both times told me I'm looking great and so pretty.

You gotta love those kind of ego boosts!

I can so relate to this. DW went through this phase a few months ago.

Yay! I'm glad you got to save the fav boots.

I hope the elbow pain will soon be a thing of the past.
I still have awful cramping in my feet and toes with terrible twisting, but stems from my spine so that is not going to change.

Thanks guys!

I'm still getting accustomed to compliments, and also to accepting them gracefully instead of denying them or refuting them. Just take a deep breath, smile and say "Thank you!" Hard.

Carol, judging by your picture, your stats, and all the loving support you provide here, you richly deserve all these compliments, and more. Beauty is as beauty does, after all!

On that note, I have another NSV at the one week point, and it requires me to confess that when I am actively practicing my eating/sugar/carb addiction, I am often a raging harpy to my nearest and dearest. And to everyone else, I am unreliable, reactive, and often withdrawn. A classic addict.

But this weekend I felt and acted differently, really differently. Calm, much less reactive and touchy. It was so different, and honestly my outlook on life feels so different. This came after putting down the addictive substances, true, but also with the help of the cleansing and strengthening feeling of hunger. I feel so grateful and glad now...sniffle...

Ok, maudlin minute over.

I have whined a bit IRL because no one at work nor in my extended family had noticed any weight loss - or made any comments thru most of my weight loss.

Today we have our first snow, it's cold and it's a DD with the shivers... I said the heck with style today - I need warmth - I dressed in my baggy corduroy pants pulled tight with a belt, a blouse and sweater that fit better 25 more pounds ago - and TODAY I get a huge compliment from a worker in a different office, who sees me every once in awhile. LOL She kept saying how skinny I looked. I just have to laugh!

I can relate so well to the mood swings that can get so ugly when I am in the sugar/carb hangover stages. I'm happy for you that you had a calm weekend! Enjoy it!

You made me smile with happiness for u both.
Calm is awesome, I feel it to when on Juddd most UD mornings.
It seems like a illegal drug at times, well it must feel that way. Hope I wrote that correctly.
I've never taken illegal drugs, a few legal ones

Thank you, that is so sweet!

I love your NSV! And your phrase "the cleansing and strengthening feeling of hunger" is so perfectly descriptive of how I feel too. Brilliant. Congratulations on feeling better and I'll bet your nearest and dearest will do everything they can to support this new WOE if it means a sweeter you!

Mine is a thankful NSV. I was at a craft show this weekend and I saw so many vendors my age dragging excess weight around, using walkers, scooters and depending on other people to do the work for them. Even the active overweight folks would benefit so much from JUDDD.
Due to JUDDD, I am healthy and able to run circles around them. I feel so bad that I can't hand out JUDDD information to all of them and wave a magic wand and make them follow the plan. There is a solution but they most likely will never benefit from it. And those people I have shared with just look at me as if I am crazy. You do WHAT??? That can't be healthy!!!
I am so thankful to JUDDD.

Today I'm wearing a pair of pants from the "too small" box... had to have DH repair a hole in the crotch before I could wear them again - I likely split them when I tried to wear them and they were too small! LOL

AND I'm wearing a dress shirt that I have been unable to wear because of button gaps, and it was tight across my shoulders and upper arms. It's comfy, with no gaps today!

UN-fortunately... It's also time to look for some smaller bras too...

I've whined to myself that no one seems to notice. But really, I think it's just a matter of being super polite. I guess they think that bringing up weight loss assumes one was overweight to begin with and they just don't want to go there.

So this week I bought my first new pair of jeans - from an occasional size 14, to a size 10!
I say occasional 14, because there were only a few brands that fit me at that size.
My family was super complimentary - it was such a great feeling, both to be smaller and to fit into something that looks good!

Love it, Goner--pants that fit you 25 lbs ago! Time for new pants (even if they do make you look skinny)!

And Scarlett and Slimming, hooray for smaller sizes, even from your own closet! Must be fantastic; can't wait to join you.

What a great bunch of NSVs. Mental and physical. Wonderful thread this.

I so agree with you Adi, I wish I could share the JUDDD miracle more with so many friends my age who are struggling with excess weight.

I empathise with this. Nobody has commented on my losses. DH knows because he records our weekly weigh-ins but I have a niggling doubt that he'd ever have noticed, unprompted.

However, I know. And, from time to time, I'm downright proud of me for doing it.

Thankful NSVs are the best. What you say is so true, and I'm thankful for you that you feel great and can be so active. My 80 JUDDDing mom is more active and spry than she was 15 years ago at age 65. We really to have the key to the kingdom and are willing to share it. Why won't people take it?

Smaller clothes! And a DH who sews! Ah, life is good. Smaller bras is just a price you have to pay.

My family was super complimentary - it was such a great feeling, both to be smaller and to fit into something that looks good!
Wonderful to get such nice compliments on your new, slim jeans body! I do think people are uncomfortable making comments about weight a lot of times. YOU know you're a lot slimmer and so do they, even if they keep their mouths shut.

However, I know. And, from time to time, I'm downright proud of me for doing it.
Well, your picture shows a nice, lean, slim woman. So if you've lost much at all, the people around you are blind! Most likely they are just not saying anything. Politeness? Jealously? Discomfort? Who knows!

I have had these thoughts also lately - I'm 62 years YOUNG, in part, thanks to JUDDD. I would share my HOW TO... but sadly, the old folks don't want to listen.

UN-fortunately... It's also time to look for some smaller bras too...
Congrats! You have been doing so well - and I'm with you on the need for smaller bras... I miss my boobs. LOL

I have 25 work days remaining till retirement - and I refuse to buy smaller sized work slacks - thus the Large Corduroy pants. LOL It's all about warmth these days - and most of the day I'm behind a desk and no one sees my slacks anyway. LOL

YOU should be proud - I'm glad you are! I give myself credit each day as I pull on my smaller sized slacks and feel the "room" in my looser tops... it is a great feeling and one I worked hard to accomplish... well SEMI-hard... given JUDDD feels pretty easy most days!

I love this! Did she start JUDDDing as a result of your success? Or was it the other way around?

Sometimes I kick myself for waiting till post-50 to get myself to a healthy, attractive weight. All those years I could have been slim!!!
Hearing of an 80 year old JUDDDer just warms my heart. It's never too late

It is NEVER too late - that is for sure! And I count on her being around many more years, especially now with her new, health-giving WOE.

She started after I had been JUDDDing for 6 months, and she's now been at it for 9 months. She's lost about 30 pounds and is right where she wants to be with her weight. She looks fantastic - nowhere near 80, if you ask me!

My gosh, Carol--a healthy old age. That's the holy grail for me. All of my grandparents succumbed to lifestyle-induced chronic ailments, or Alzheimers. My parents are also on their way, sadly. Doing JUDDD is my way of trying to turn the tide.

Another one here who is hoping for a long healthy old age. I am seldom taken for my age especially at the gym The 60s are the new 40s.

I think people notice we're slimmer but are often afraid to ask. Several people have tentatively asked me if I've lost a lot of weight, then asked if it was intentional.

Last week, my friend "accused" me of losing more weight - which I haven't but somehow, my shoulders are narrower.

I got a nice winter jacket out of my wardrobe today and it looks awful because it's two sizes too big. DH bought it for me a couple of years ago - and I'd felt really slim then! It's a really cute coat so I guess it will be a great charity shop find for someone.
