How many times can one ...
come back here yet AGAIN???

Sheesh. I know I'm impatient. I get majorly frustrated when pounds go up and down, my old JB's know that. I went low carb in July. Cut out wheat and sugar in September and cut carbs to 20 grams per day. Decided to give Atkins '72 a go, even buying the book. Same quibble between 3-5 pounds. I keep feeling the JUDDD pull, though, and as I mentioned somewhere on here, feel like I change plans as often as I change socks. Oh, okay, underwear.

Y'all hang onto me, please. I need to keep myself accountable. I want and need this to work. Why my body is so freakin' stubborn, I'll never know. :mad:

There's so many here that are my inspirations, Flutter's awesome pics being the latest that tell me I can do this.

So, I'm giving this yet another go. It's the one thing I've had the most success at - when I stick to it.

You know you're always welcome back here, 'Nilla! Hang on tight to us, and it'll stick!

It's old home week looks like. I just jumped back in this week too. Got 10 pounds that I need to kick to the curb, as well as reign in some serious cravings and no-brakes eating.

Hello again!

Eieio 11-19-2013 04:37 PM

Hi latte!

It is welcome back home for US! I love it.
Anxious to be together again!

Carly 11-19-2013 06:29 PM

It works if you work it! You can do it and we are all here cheering you on.

Flossyliz 11-20-2013 06:04 AM

:hiya: Welcome back Vanilla. You can do this! :high5:

Goner 11-20-2013 07:55 AM

Hello - nice to meet you. You ask how many times can you come back? I guess the answer - as many as it takes. <wink> Such a warm welcome from your old JBs!!

Not giving up is the key to any success! Good luck! I'll be happy to cheer you on!

KeirasMom 11-20-2013 08:36 AM

:welcome: back, and we'll keep on welcoming you back! :jumpjoy:

Sirtain 11-20-2013 09:29 AM

On JUDDD you get to come back every other day! :)

Librarygirl 11-20-2013 09:50 AM

Welcome Back Nilla! :)

vanilla_latte 11-20-2013 09:54 AM

Aw, thanks for the warm welcome back. All your posts had me smiling and lol'ing (Sirtain)! It's nice to be back and not just as a lurker! :hugs:

Mssarge 11-20-2013 11:21 AM

Old home week, indeed...welcome back 'nilla. As you know (or not) I came home in October anxious to lose the next forty pounds....How many times can you come back. She said it right "as long as it takes" cause you know the JB's are here waiting to encourage you. Don't you love this woe..you (especially) know it works (if you work the plan). As for me, I was hoping/wishing/praying to get into the next "tens"...breaking the next decade. Not sure I can do it as my get up and go, got up and went...but at least it will be a couple pounds. Which is the way this one works....we can do it.:jumpjoy:

So many familiar faces returning. What fun. We CAN do this. Just one day at a time. Tomorrow is always a new day - especially on JUDDD. Welcome home!

vanilla_latte 11-20-2013 12:40 PM

:high5: , Seabreezes and yes, Mssarge, I've been lurking and I did see where you came back.

Glad to be one of the many returnees. Now to dump this weight!

Flutter 11-20-2013 01:18 PM

Yay, Nilla, so happy to see you officially post that you're back! of COURSE you can do this...and as others have mentioned, you just keep coming back as many times as you need to...although, I personally hope that you are back for good now. ;) XO You got this girl!!! :heart:

vanilla_latte 11-20-2013 02:10 PM

Aw, thanks, Flutter, and I really want to make this work. I've wanted everything else to work, but JUDDD just keep pullin' me back in!

Kissa 11-20-2013 02:59 PM

Nilla, Nilla, so lovely to see you back. I'll be watching out for any threads strangely stopping though.

Seriously I love this flurry of old faces returning, this is just the nicest place to be and we never forget our JBs.

Lets make it work its magic again.

vanilla_latte 11-21-2013 11:54 AM

Aw, thanks Kissa! I do want the magic!! I've lurked so much I feel like I never left! It is cool to see so many returning.

Kissa 11-24-2013 02:42 PM

Nice loss to start things off!

Rebecca1979 11-24-2013 07:22 PM

Welcome back Nilla! =)

vanilla_latte 11-25-2013 11:40 AM

Thank you, both!!! :high5:

Well, this seems like an appropriate place to say "I may be back".

The last year has been pretty much non-stop emergencies involving elderly parents, elderly cat, and a DH whose health is degrading. ... Oh, with intermittent vacations (two cruises in 2012, three scheduled for 2013).

And here I am, over a year after calling goal, weighing less than I did when I entered maintenance. Still loving JUDDD, still living JUDDD. Given the NSVs, like no arthritis pain and a clear complexion, I am still committed to a life of doing the DD/UD dance.

You can do it 'Nilla! No one says it is easy. No one says it is fast. But, golly, it sure is GOOD.

Joyjoy 11-30-2013 01:45 PM

Okay, if Killa's in, I am too.
Not a bad year, but pudgier than I like. Have spent much of the last year writing, which turns out not to be much of a metabolism booster.
Today is my second dd and it feels good, good, good. This time around I'm paying more attention to the quality of what I eat.
Hi to all you new losers, hi again to the the old losers. It's humbling coming back, and if this crowd weren't so supportive, courageous, and welcoming, it wouldn't happen. Thanks.:heart::)

Kissa 11-30-2013 02:05 PM

Whoohoo, how nice is this!

Soooooo nice to see you all popping in.

LoCarbGal 11-30-2013 02:22 PM

It's great to see both Nancy and Kristin jumping back in! Hi guys!

Jbinme 11-30-2013 02:58 PM

:hiya:Count me in! I've put around 20lbs back on and I'm ready to get back to strict rotations.
It's great to see everyone!

Kissa 11-30-2013 03:11 PM

Yay, they are pouring back in. :)

Joyjoy 11-30-2013 03:19 PM

Cindy, love that signature. Don't think I've been hungry for about nine months.:heart:

Seabreezes 11-30-2013 05:52 PM

Welcome back to some very familiar faces! So nice to "see" you.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:04 PM.
