Hello to everyone! I haven't posted in the daily chat before, but am back to JUDDDing after about 5 weeks away so I thought I'd pop by.

Just to introduce myself a bit, I'm a 49 yr old mom and grandma with 2 daughters, the oldest lives here with myself and my hubby (along with our 2 granddaughters and daughter's fiancee) and my younger daughter is away at college. Home for the holidays though, so we have a full house right now!

We live in the frozen tundra of Minnesota (it's -8 degrees out right now!), would love to move to a warmer climate but I doubt that will ever happen. Hubby and I are both self-employed, he owns an entertainment company and I do online sales (ebay).

I look forward to chatting with everyone!

Hey there! My DH was born and raised in Minnesota and now we live in California. BTW we watched the news yesterday about the fire. Did they ever find out what caused it?

I haven't done daily chat much, but I'm planning to hang out here more.

We have 2 kids and 5 grand kids. We have had beautiful weather for the holidays and have had kids coming and going. My 13 year old grand daughter and her best friend have been here all week. They were supposed to spend one night, but every morning they ask if they can spend another night. I love having them. They are so much fun.

Wow, I was away for one day and look at all the activity! I love hearing all your updates and resolutions. I won't try to respond to each of your posts, but and to everyone!

I am having my first "real" DD in well over a week - almost two really, if I'm completely honest. And I am so ready for it! I've decided to do VLC for a couple of weeks, just to get the sugar/carbs out of my system, and kill all remaining cravings. I have thoroughly enjoyed all my holiday eating, but my body is telling me it's time to stop. I have felt achy and creaky, gassy and bloated, and just tired and lethargic. And I have a mini-breakout on my chest. Okay, okay, I hear you body!

So this is my plan for January:

*VLC every day, for at least 2 weeks
*DD 500 and UD 1900-2000 - I think I can swing this with the protein & fat
*no alcohol for 2 weeks
*drink as much water and iced tea as possible (I've been really slacking)
*no soda for 2 weeks, and limit to 1 or 2 per week after that
*some kind of exercise at least 4 times a week

I realized that I had started my Diet Dr Pepper habit back pretty heavily during the holidays - a little before actually - and my losses disappeared, even when I was rotating. So out it goes.

I'm really very motivated to get the ball rolling again with the new year. I'm going to reach my goal of 140 sometime this year, and then figure out if I'm happy there, or want to go lower. Here we go.....

Kissa, I will also say the same to you. You look amazing!!!

Thank you everyone for the kind words.

I think that might be hardest part about doing mon, wed, fri is not letting the weekends get out of hand. I think I might try it and see how it goes. It cant hurt at this point. Ok, heading to the good feelings thread!!!!
If I were doing M/W/F DD's and S/S UD's I would allocate almost all of my calories to Lunch and Dinner and IF until Lunch, with maybe some HWC with coffee in the morning. It would give you an extended fast from your Friday DD and also give you a lot more leeway for lunch and dinner and help you stay within your UD limits.

Lemontini you do have a house flu, but I bet you love it. And Yamster with a couple of lovely young teens staying. I don't have grandchildren so I sometimes feel a little jealous...

Sounds like a good plan Carol, I am cutting back on the carbs a bit too, for a while at least. It just feels right and I am looking forward to some serious meat and fish eating, lol.

I won't drop the alcohol completely but DH is on restricted intake for medical reasons so that encourages me to take less, which all to the good.

And tomorrow I go back to the gym!

When I do this I often find it hard to fit in the calories by the end of the day, which most would agree is a good situation to be in. I usually don't force it. Like today it is coming up on 5pm and all I've had today is 434 calories and I planned for 1800 today as a rest day. So with 1366 calories left for dinner and maybe a snack later I might not even get to 1800, which I will just assume is going to be subtracted from my fat stores along with the deficit already in the 1800 allowance.

I had only had about 525 going into dinner, and now I am having grilled Greek chicken, baked potato with everything and a salad w/homemade ranch. It is sooo yummy! I figure I will have no problem whatsoever getting to 1800, however and will have to watch it in order to not go over. I have some milk stout I want to try, and also a dessert.

Thank you Mike, great idea. I may be able to pull it off once in awhile. The problem is that me and DH are big breaky eaters on the weekends. We love to either go out for breakfast or just enjoy having a nice big breakfast together on the weekend.
It is usually some kind of egg bake so it isnt anything major but sometimes we also go out for dinner....UGGHH!!
All i can do right now is play it by ear and see how it goes.

Good idea on cutting the carbs back Carol. I am goign to do this too. I dont eat many carbs anyway but i think i can dial them back just a little more and especially stop drinking for a couple of weeks.
I like my wine and a beer once in awhile or a gimlet.
I have 1 glass of wine left and will drink that tomorrow night and I will vow to lay off the liquor or any alcohol for 2 weeks!!!
I would love to get down under 160 by February!!!

Hi everyone!
The holiday damage is in and it holds at 129.9
A lovely DD today- much needed!
Carol I think I will join you on no soda. I'm going to say no to it till 1/11/14- fingers crossed please.

I joined a website EveryMove that syncs with my Fitbit (I heard about it here from someone.) I signed up for a challenge in Mid-January for a month. I'm going to try to keep my running on the elliptical going until that challenge actually starts.

Cindy LG- I must know what Milk Stout is- do tell...

Wow! this has been a busy thread...glad I checked today before it got too big to play catch-up. It's so good seeing all the old friends and the new-to-me friends checking in. I'll be checking in more frequently as I need to get back on the hobby horse.

I was so afraid I'd gain weight in December as I wasn't really working the plan...my DD's not so down but my UD's weren't UUADs. I wasn't worried about it, tho', as I had decided there's always next month. I thought I'd hit as much as four pounds increase, but was surprised on the 31st to have only a one pound increase and then this morning back to my December starting weight...

Don't know if y'all remember an earlier discussion about eating habits based on blood type, but we talked about it months ago. Point is, since I'm an O+ blood type and that's the earliest blood type, I'm not hungry in the morning (think of the cavewomen not having anything in the cave and would have to go out and forage for something) I rarely eat before noon (and have a lovely breakfast on my up days and frequently nothing until much later on my down ones.) I don't eat later that seven p.m. which gives a fast each day of 17 hours, and "they" say that a 16-hour fast is good as gold. I know some of our folks use a five-, six-, or eight-hour eating window and have shown really great results...maybe you could try that, too.

I'll definitely be around more this year as I'm starting on my last 30-pound weight loss and I know I couldn't have lost the 50 pounds without your help...Wanted to say "hi" to all by name, but forgot to do so, so I hope one big "hiya" and a happy new year suffices..I hope good things and happiness come your way in 2014.

I've been having a tough time getting on and staying on the web site today. Slow going when I can get on.

Wow! this is an active thread! Love hearing about how everyone is working their plans.

I had a very pleasant DD with no calories so far except half n half in my coffee this morning. Just water other than that.

I'm not super hungry but may have a small dinner with DH. Early to bed to night and hoping to see a friendly number on the scale tomorrow morning!

We're the same blood type! I've always taken that as a sign from the universe as to how I'm supposed to conduct my life and my outlook - B+ = be positive!

Soren, I'll check it out and get back to you...I actually saw it on a Dr. Oz Segment about six to eight weeks ago...I don't remember what the various blood types were and the good diet for each...I know the O's since they were the first blood type developed eating the paleo diet, the B's I think were the next to evolve and that was when farming started...thus, the B's would do best with carbs and farming stuff. The A's were the last to come and were adapted to both paleo and farm goods. There was also part of it which is where the O's don't get hungry in the morning, so should refain from eating early. another part had to do with where you gained fat, apple/pear shapes. It was slightly different from the "Eat for your blood type" diet popular a number of years ago.

I'll try to find it on the Dr. Oz website, but you may want to search for yourself.

p.s. Just did a quick check of Dr. Oz's shows and could only find when he had the doc on that wrote the "Eat for your blood Type" and I saw where A blood type was the second which developed. then the B's followed by the AB's...paleo for O's, heavy grains and veg's for A's, balanced carbs and proteins for the B's, and, of course the AB's are adapted to eating everything. I'll do an episode search and a search for my notes (yes, I make notes of shows that strike me as interesting....sigh!) Someday I'll get a life.

Well I managed to overdo it, even though I had only about 500 calories before dinner lol. I'm not sure that saving all my calories for the end of the day is the way for me to go either...seems like I can't get enough to eat, and continue snacking even after I'm full.

Milk stout is a lager or beer. Not as exciting as it sounded probably, lol.

I personally do much better if I save as many calories as possible for after 6 PM. It goes against everything the "experts" say, but it's the only way I can avoid overeating in the evening hours. I usually eat about 1000 calories between 6-9 PM on UpDays.

Cindy,
I'm with you. I struggle with stopping when I'm full. At a buffet, I am a disaster. There is no stopping me as long as there is still food. I do much better with plated meals because, even if I keep eating past full, at least there is an end in sight (all the food on my plate is gone). Some times I do really good with stopping when I'm full, and other times I will literally eat myself into physical pain. Why do we do this to ourselves? I don't know - I can't find a common denominator - this doesn't seem to be associated with any particular food triggers that I can identify. Its just that sometimes I seem to have my poo together and sometimes I really, really don't!
I'll even keep eating something I don't necessarily like. As in I am taking a bite while saying "This isn't that good." Well then for goodness sake, PUT IT DOWN!!! Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't.
Its a mental and physical anomaly, one I hope to find the key to, as I think it will help me get my food issues under control.
Hang in here sister, we're all in this together. You're not alone in your struggles, and you're in the right place for unwavering support.
Hugs.

I ate about 2000 calories after 6 pm lol. On the days I have a big lunch, I don't have as much desire to eat in the evenings, although it's not as pleasurable to me to not have a nice dinner to look forward to, if you know what I mean.

Yennie, I usually don't eat a whole lot at a time. I rarely clean my plate, unless it's a sandwich or something. My problem is going back and having this that and the other, AFTER dinner. I only ate about half my food at dinner, then I had 2 beers, then I had a candy bar, then I had another beer, then I had a Pepsi, then I had a bowl of ice cream, then I had some pretzels and dip. Now, I'm done and my stomach hurts lol.

But either way, its a lack of an off switch. We don't stop when we're full, whether is packing it all in in one sitting or grazing to the point of pain over several hours.
Its a problem. We'll find the solution.

Yes it is a problem, and it seems so surmountable at the beginning of every UD lol. In fact, I felt in control up until those last two snacks. Then I got out the calculator. I think it's partly boredom, and partly comfort, and even partly because I "couldn't eat it yesterday, and won't be able to eat it tomorrow." I thought about saving part of my candy bar, and then told myself---it won't be any good two days from now.

I get that feeling sometimes! It's kind of like the "glass half empty" version of "you can have it tomorrow." On a DD, that is an amazing tool, but the "you can't have it tomorrow" thought on a UD is sometimes a problem.

I'm trying to be aware right now of how different foods affect how satisfied (or not) I feel by the end of an up day, because just eating all my up day calories doesn't always do that anymore. I'm trying now to focus on satiating foods like protein, some fats, veggies, fiber-y things and not think of UDs so much as treat days, but as normal days with occasional treats. I like Bethenny Frankel's line: "You can have it all, just not all at once" and am trying to apply it to up days.

What a nice way of thinking! Now, this I shall never forget for we are bloody (as the Brits would say) sisters!

Some times I do really good with stopping when I'm full, and other times I will literally eat myself into physical pain. Why do we do this to ourselves? I don't know - I can't find a common denominator - this doesn't seem to be associated with any particular food triggers that I can identify. Its just that sometimes I seem to have my poo together and sometimes I really, really don't!
I'll even keep eating something I don't necessarily like. As in I am taking a bite while saying "This isn't that good." Well then for goodness sake, PUT IT DOWN!!! Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't.
Its a mental and physical anomaly, one I hope to find the key to, as I think it will help me get my food issues under control.
Hang in here sister, we're all in this together. You're not alone in your struggles, and you're in the right place for unwavering support.
Hugs.
OMG! How I relate to all this! Must be B+ linked gene

I knew there must be an advantage to being an AB+ ��

Good to see you Mary, I am so glad you did so well over December. Quite a few of you over on the Golden Years threads do a JUDDD light don't you? I know lovely Loretta does and mermaid sometimes joins us in the summer.

Down 1.6 this morning which is good.

Hi everybody.
Cindy (Kissa), thank you for the recipe for brandy alexanders. I believe we perfected them and more over the holiday. I now have BA (brandy alexander) blood. That is all.

I'd like to B+, but I'm AB-... figures...

I identify so much with the continued eating after full - and I try NEVER to go to buffets - I overeat every time!!

For me, I am a routine person - bad habits can be changed with planning and some white knuckling and then I'm into a good habit and a routine. I have found my routine varies with the season - and my night time eating habits in the winter are a problem. I need to find other things to do when I get home from work besides eat and think about food. And as I've mentioned, I'll be retired the end of this month and will really need to find activities night AND day so I'm not grazing constantly.

We’re home again. It seems as if we’ve been away a long time (actually two weeks).

I think my weight stayed pretty steady, which I’m very pleased about. Today is a down day, so I’m back into EOD for the last few pounds, then hope to move to 5/2 or 4/3 for maintenance.
