Pleasantly surprised! Yay for JUDDD

For the last couple of weeks I haven't been doing JUDDD right. I have had more UD than I should, haven't been tracking right on either days, just making bad choices.

Anyway, I haven't been weighing out of fear. Yesterday I got back on track and had a great DD. All this time I have been trying to get close to my DD calories because I thought I was supposed to. Yesterday, I just decided to eat a small meal when I was hungry. It ended up being under 200 cals and I left it at that.

I weighed today and was the lowest I've been since starting JUDDD. I really did not expect that with all the messing up I've done! After reading the thread talking about how people seem to lose slower but also gain slower on JUDDD, I think that's really the case.

Just more proof that JUDDD is what I need to do. I don't know why I'm sharing this, other than some support. Remind me I'm worth it because I don't feel it. I always sabotage myself. And I need to stop. I love this group because it's so supportive and inspiring, I'm so thankful to have found you all.

it IS so easy to sabotage yourself! i have done it for years. i really think this way of eating may end that. just remember you are so totally worth this. you will be healthier, have more self confidence and enjoy looking in the mirror rather than avoiding them. do this for YOU. you are on the right track... don't give up now

You are SOOOOOO worth it, Tina!!! I think most of us here have or have had cycles of sabotaging ourselves. We aren't in this spot because we have made great food decisions our whole lives. I also think that the key to success is believing that we're worth it and that we can do it. Other people can tell us, but we have to believe it for ourselves.

This plan is so cool because it truly is one day at a time! You can do it!

Good for you Tina! You can do this! No one is looking for you to be on a timeline! Do it on your own time. You will have more success! =)

I'm so glad you reached out for support. We all need to do this from time to time, and it can be hard to do.

You ARE sooooooo worth it Tina! Don't ever forget that.

Well done Tina.

JUDDD is incredibly forgiving and generous and will teach you to be like that with yourself too!
(Have you seen my track record recently? )

As you learn to trust JUDDD, you'll learn to trust yourself.
You can do this - and you definitely deserve it!

I totally get the sabotaging thing. I've lost in the past, and then something that I can't quite identify creeps in - like suddenly I'm not as thrilled about losing as I was. I feel more comfortable in my old skin... I don't like the attention.... my comfy clothes don't fit... who knows? It's sad but true.

This time, I have a different approach, different motivation. Sure, I want to look good, but in this time of life I'm living, I'm looking at the future, and I don't want to be fat growing old.

If I ever need someone to take care of me, I don't want to be a fat patient. As a nurse, I'm aware of the physical demands of caring for someone who is heavier. I'm determined to be as light of a burden as possible
And by eating healthier, I hope not to be a burden at all!

That may be kind of morbid thinking, but it comes with age I guess!

I'm so glad I reached out. It wasn't easy but it's something we all should probably do a little more. Thank you so much to all of you!

Reading this is like I'm talking through a different person. LOL. I have thought and felt (feel) everything you wrote. All your reasons for sabotage are mine.

Although, I'm not a nurse but was a CNA for many years and others taking care of me crosses my mind more than I'll admit. So if it's morbid, I'm guilty as well. I think it's the caregiver in us talking.

It was very surreal reading 'my' thoughts written by someone else and quite enlightening.

Reading back over what i wrote, I think I could have taken a some care to be a little less blunt - but maybe my mind is in another place. My dad just moved into skilled care this week - (hopefully a temporary thing) He hates to be a burden to anyone, and so those thoughts are at the forefront of my mind these days.
