That's awesome! That's a huge barrier to overcome. I'm still not there. I still want to eat as much as I can even if I'm full because it's available to me. I strongly dislike that I still do that. It's that whole eat-what-I-can-while-I-can mentality or being deprived even though I'm not.

Oceana, I don‘t think the amount I want to eat has changed much. It’s that I realised I wasn’t eating as I wanted to, I was eating to be polite, or not draw attention to myself. Before, I just did that without thinking about it.

I think it's outstanding that people feel free of guilt and self-loathing.

Placebo and nocebo are very powerful forces when they modulate our response to medical treatments. Years ago, I remember a very young boy being literally physically sick because someone told him that he'd just eaten a tiny quantity of vegetable (that he hadn't previously noticed) and something similar happened in the UK version of Jamie's School Dinners.

So, I strongly suspect that there can be a nocebo effect when we eat some foodstuffs and this can harm us over time. Longwinded way of saying, 'Huzzah for lack of food-related guilt and self-loathing'.

^^^^^ Yup, yup, yup! No fear with JUDDD! The holiday weight will come off and it's not even unpleasant. In fact, I quite enjoy most DDs. I'm kind of enjoying being back to EOD for a while.

That's a great realization, and now you can act on it! Wonderful!

I love the NSVs! (And the fact that the thread is so big it is in it's third installment!)

The thing about not despairing if you overindulge once in a while is HUGE. Part of it is that, unlike other diets, it really doesn't slow you down much at all if it doesn't happen too often. In other plans, it seems you can undo weeks of work in one day, which would be a reason to feel a little bad. We get to (in Cindy's beautiful wording): rotate, relax, reduce, rejoice.

So true about other diets! You can work hard and suffer for weeks on end and then blow it in a day it seems. Not so, JUDD. Just pick up where you left off, have a couple of good DD rotations and you are good to go again. Love it!

So I went shopping for some black pants yesterday. I also exchanged some unworn size 10 jeans for size 8. I was SURE that they'd go on tight, and I'd have to let them loosen out through wearing them.
They went on like butter! Perfect fit. I's SO weird to have on such tiny jeans, but it FEELS SO GOOD!!

And then the black pants. I was in a hurry, so I just grabbed a bunch of size 10, and a few 8, thinking maybe one would work.
In the past, clothes shopping was a dreaded chore - I hated it because the best I could hope for was something that would be minimally bad. Something that I could get over my fat thighs and hips would invariably leave a huge gap at the waist, and in the end, I'd try on about 10 pair and ONE would be acceptable. I'd walk out discouraged and just relieved to be done with it.
But last night was different!
The 10s were a little on the loose side.
But the size 8 pants were just sliding on beautifully with a perfect fit - all of them! I couldn't believe I could actually pick 5 pair off the rack and then CHOOSE which one I liked best. Not settle for the best of the worst.
I left without any slacks. I couldn't make up my mind and decided I wanted to be sure I wasn't going into a 6 before I spend too much.
This could spark an unexpected shopping bug to develop - what a shock that would be to everyone that knows me!

Wonderful NSV, Lemontini!! I love hearing about the tiny sizes! I want to get there so bad!

My NSV is not really an NSV, but it made me happy. I "discovered" that a "new" dress (bought used) that I wore today is a size 6P. There's no way in hell I'm in a 6, as all my other dresses are 14, 12 and one 10. And, it wasn't a worn out tag or faded 1 in front of the 6, because I checked. Talk about vanity sizing!

It is hard to get over the breasts, because the waist is so small, but it fits pretty well, and the rest of it is no problem (fit and flare). And it's RED.

ETA: I saw it hanging up high at the flea market (in case you were wondering how I didn't know the size! I knew it would fit me by looking at it, and bought it. I didn't even look at the size until after I had washed it and took it down to wear).

Lemontini thats is definitely not a "small" NSV. I'm so excited for you.

Talk about major vanity points Cindy. Red dresses always make me feel sexier and skinnier.

I finally got caught up with the NSV threads and had to make a couple of comments.

Way back in the dark ages of the Internet, I was on a mailing list for a diet program. It was mostly women and one of the most common fears these ladies had was that they would get thin, get a lot of attention from men and then they would cheat on their spouses. I thought that was kind of weird but it was a very common fear and quite a few ladies let it sabotage their weight loss efforts.

I'm not saying that anyone here would actually do this; this comment just made me remember that.

Yes I have ankles today!
On the aforementioned mailing list, we had one lady that completely freaked out because she found a lump in her pelvic region.

It turned out to be her hip bone.

While I was out shopping I decided to try on a pair of skinny jeans . I havenít worn anything like that for so long that I had no clue what the sizes even meant. I asked the assistant and she told me a 28 was a UK 10, so I started with those, but felt like such a fraud picking them up that I took the next size up into the changing room to be on the safe side. I put the smaller ones on, and came out into the shop. The assistant told me they were too big! So I bought the 27s. I have no idea what that corresponds to in any real size, but Iím claiming it a s a victory anyway .

That's awesome, Ailuros!! Like we all say, the pants don't lie!!

Carol, I am not a 6. Not by far, but the dress is probably closer to an 8, so it is better than I've been wearing. I couldn't wear a fitted dress in a size smaller than a 14 probably (nor would I want to wear a fitted dress in any size right now), but I can wear the ones with the fitted waist and flared bottom.
