That was awesome. Thank you Kristin. "Comparison is the thief of joy." "I have a beautiful body." The last couple of minutes left me in tears.

That clip was indeed beautiful, and I, like Dawn, had to wipe away some tears.

That gal was so full of joy and was a pleasure to watch.

He's also losing about 3/4 pound per day now that we're doing Atkins. He's nearly out of the 230s, into the 220s, and he's quite pleased. He had slowed down significantly in the last few months, though we both notice body composition changes happening, so he hasn't pushed for more weight loss. I suspect he started with Atkins just to support me, but typical male that he is, he's blowing me right out of the water!
I don't remember if you said before, but does DH JUDDD? That is awesome that he is doing so well! The two of you have been incredibly dedicated and awesomely successful. What great role models for your daughter.

My black lab is lying in the sunshine outside eating smoked almonds. MY smoked almonds. I left the can on a low table in my bedroom when we left the house yesterday for a few hours, and came back to torn packaging and almonds all over the floor--and apparently all over the yard. Learned my lesson!

What a great clip! Wish we could get though to our daughters like this but I'm afraid media and air-brushing have done their numbers on them already. What a lovely quote, Joy!

Even when I had a really beautiful body, I didn't know it and always heard myself being described as, "Oh she is really "heart whole & healthy", isn't she" - meaning overweight! I must have been 112-115 lbs at 5'5"! But on the other hand, since the media was so limited and full length mirrors were hard to come by we didn't obsess with the body so much. Really tough for this generation.

He doesn't JUDDD. He did for a few weeks when I started, but it wasn't for him (too much tracking for him). He's lost his weight with WLS, and is down well over 200 pounds now from his highest. He's a-may-zing.

Kristin, loved the clip and had to let you know I hijacked it for the Goldens Forum. A Friend had posted a question about body image and this really filled the bill...thanks. And jd, I agree with you but it is a losing battle we must continue to fight for our youth.

Hi Slow, yes she is and we skype every day. Says, she is in love with the country (meaning the flora and fauna of Brisbane). She is very lucky as she got along so well with the owner of B&B, that the lady offered her an apartment for lease right away! So now, she is just relaxing and gallivanting around Brisbane. We'll see how she really fares when the classes start on 28th. It's a tough road ahead but what a future it will be if it all goes well. I must say, so very considerate of you to remember

P.S. She says it reminds her so much of England (Woolworths!) but very, very expensive!

P.P.S Slow, did you blog your PH month somewhere? I started few days ago and I love it!

Just catching up on many pages. I like getting to know everyone a bit better here in chat. Soren - sorry for you loss.

Very interesting discussion on body image... but I also see myself smaller than I am rather than larger - always a surprise in photos.

As for sleeping - I average 6-7 hours a night but seem to do ok. I have noticed a night or two when JUDDDing that is off my usual pattern - but nothing continuous. I too could win a medal in the sleeping contest! My DH used to think it was lazy to sleep past 6 am, but he's mellowed to 7 am in his old age. LOL I think my Mom used the need for sleeping in to avoid breakfast time with the 13 children she had! LOL I don't blame her a bit.

Hi folks,

I'm here. It was a rough weekend, and I want to thank everyone (again? did I do this already?) for all your support here and on FB. Your messages and good thoughts are so very appreciated.

I'm working today (not a holiday in Canada) and it's so quiet here. I'm in my normal spot on the couch, and we removed the dog bed and food/water bowls. Part of me likes the reclaimed space, but it's hard to look in that corner. Sigh.
Didn't cry yesterday, but also avoided all sad things. Action movies and Sherlock (BBC) are the keys.

Dawn, I'm so happy for you and your DH

I'm thinking today will be a MD or so... just not UUAD. Tomorrow a normal UD, and we'll see how we go from there.

to everyone, you are wonderful friends.

S.

Good to see you 'managing' Soren. Tough times.

Yay for you and DH Dawn, he is just a poster child for WLS. I am sure he has you to thank for a lot too.

I haven't watched the video clip yet, but it is clearly an important watch.

JD, did you know that my lovely DD, MintQ8 (Vicky), although currently working in Oman, has made her home in Brisbane? I love it there.

My dream vacation is Fiji, but Australia would be high on that list along with a cruise of the Greek and Turkish islands.

I've been lucky to have traveled, but I would love to do it more. Work and finances seem to dictate that it not happen as often as I wish.

How great about the jacket, Dawn! DH is doing so marvelously and he must be feeling fantastic! You two are wonders.

Kristin, that video was perfect. "Comparison is the thief of joy." What a great quote that is. Thank you for sharing it.

Cindy/LG, ouch, that really hurt hearing about your almonds. Those babies are not cheap. But I'm not surprised the pupster wanted them. They's gooooood!

Phyl, you're so sweet. I'm glad you're back!

(Clears throat)JD, did you just hear yourself? You have a beautiful body RIGHT NOW! Own it!

Soren, it sounds like your getting along as well as you can. There's no way around it, it's just hard. Clearing out the doggie stuff is so hard, but it's almost harder to see it sitting there.

I think I got completely caught up on my sleep over the weekend. I slept great Saturday night and took about an hour nap yesterday, and slept great again last night. I'm feeling pretty energetic today - a great way to start a new week.

I'm also feeling very optimistic about starting to lose again. I've cut my calories to close to calculator numbers, and will mix in a few lower DDs and higher UDs to keep the old bod guessing. I've added in some carbs (scones for breakfast yesterday) and alcohol, but I think I'll try and keep soda out as much as I can. I was going to wait to weigh until the 31st, but I have my BodPod bodyfat test scheduled for the 29th, so I'll weigh that morning and compare it to the weight I get from the test. Nervous and excited about that test!

I think having the bodpod test is great!
Maybe it's something I'll look into after I've been working out at this level for a while.

Carly: we have some friends who just moved to Fiji. I've never been there. They have gone there a lot and have been planning a permanent move for about a year. All her emails are over the moon happy.

DH and I are headed to the gym in about an hour. I feel like staying home and lounging around. But, once I get there I know I'll be motivated to get my sweat on.

Hey JUDDDiacs

Hope everyone had a Happy New Year! Sorry a little late on that one For about 3 or 4 years I have been doing a 21 day fast with Jentezen Franklin's church Kingdom Connection. I usually do a Daniel Fast, but this year I am doing a full fast because I have just not been able to get ahold of my eating binges to get this weight off. I am on day 15, I started out on juicing and now am only drinking water and green tea. As of this morning I am down 23 pounds so by the end which is Sunday I will be out of the 300's finally. I believe this binge thing is over I will probably juice for a couple of days after that to ease my body into eating then it is JUDDD to the finish. I can't wait to be a thin person again

More power to you! That is some serious commitment. WTG on the 23 pounds, and you'll be in the Two's in no time. JUDDD is a fantastic way to lose the rest in a very livable way. Just be sure to post here as much as you can - the support can't be beat!
