You know, I can't think of a single thread with success stories documented. Maybe we should start one. There are lots of wonderful JUDDDers here who have had tremendous success. Have you checked out our NSV thread? It's not related to weight loss success, but there are amazing non-scale victories noted.

Yes, I was thinking of you, and a few others! I'm surprised there is not a dedicated sticky on this topic. Just looking for motivation! I know it works and I'm back to try it again.

I'll be celebrating my 2 year JUDDDiversary on Friday and many of my successes are noted in my journal (link in my signature.)

The non scale victory thread is amazing though.

back, ironicwoman! I love your username!

Maybe we should start a success stories thread. I think we've all told our stories in numerous threads, but you'd have to do a lot of reading to dig them all out, and we tend to tell it in pieces too. Hmmm....

I think a success stories thread would be great. There are so many here, which seems kinda rare when I looked at other sub-forums.

JUDDD Success Stories

Ok. Please let us hear how you did it. Even some who haven't reached goal have lost a remarkable amount of weight and are keeping it off. Share your story. Tell us your struggles and how you did it. Remember even 30 pounds lost qualifies you for the National Weight Control Registry.

This can be the success thread.

I may be wrong about that. I just read NWCR is 60 pounds. Not sure.

I don't think we should have any limit on pounds lost to qualify for a success story, no matter what the National Registry says! I'll post my story later, when I have more time to compose my thoughts and make more sense.

So true! Then I may even post though my loss is small in comparison.

The average 5yr maintainer has shed 33kg or >70lbs but the scale criterion for maintenance is 30lbs. From the National Weight Control Registry:
Quote:
Recruitment for the Registry is ongoing. If you are at least 18 years of age and have maintained at least a 30 pound weight loss for one year or longer you may be eligible to join our research study.
So, for success stories, much depends on how you define success. Percentage of body weight, time in maintenance?

I agree with LoCarbGal. I don't think we need to be so clinical with our definition of success.

I'm sorry this sounded like I was suggesting a criteria for success. That's not what I meant. Even our NSVs are successes.

That's so interesting. I lost 54 pounds that I've kept off for almost two years now. But since I lost an additional 25 with JUDDD last year and regained all of that (12 pounds already gone!) I don't feel like a success story at all. I don't think I will feel like a success story until I reach goal. Maybe that's not a healthy mindset? I know I'm healthier having lost those 54 pounds, but I'd like to get off the up/down wagon and actually get to maintenance.

Deedee, that the way I feel, too. Until I can stay rock solid at my goal I don't feel like I qualify. Also, my losses are so small in comparison to so many others.

Personally, I feel that if you've lost it - that's a success. Whether it's 15 or 150 lbs, let's face it, it's always a struggle?
I think people just starting out or struggling benefit from reading success stories. It gives them hope?
But hey, I'm just a newb, so carry on.

I feel like you are being pretty hard on yourself. Your start weight wasn't all that overweight, but may 120 is going to be hard to stay at "rock solid".

I'm shorter than you and I have to work pretty hard to stay rock solid at 120.
123 is pretty easy, but since you are even taller than me I would imagine that it would take effort to stay solidly at 120.

Our bodies are all different and we all carry weight differently, but maybe your ultimate goal will cause you to feel that you are constantly struggling

You may be right, Carly. I have this ideal in my mind. I got there back in 2011 by LC/VLC, but didn't stay there long because I was starving. With JUDDD I'm not hungry, so I think it's more possible now. We'll see.

I related to this! On strict VLC I can lose with lightening speed. But it's very hard to keep it off. And, I'm always grumpy because of so many restrictions on LC. Then, one slip up and the scale bounces sky high and takes forever to go back down even if I'm very strict (and grumpy.)

On JUDDD I'm never hungry. I definitely experience the JUDDD Calm that is probably a by-product of those magic sirtuins flowing around inside me. Weight loss is slower with this WOE but I'm not in a race and I'm too old to suffer on a WL plan anymore!

I lost weight at least as fast with EOD fasting as with LC, and the rate of loss didn’t slow down all that much as my weight reduced. I had to make a deliberate change to my diet to stop losing, which I didn’t with LC.

I don’t notice a JUDDD calm, but at least it doesn’t actually make me jittery as LC did.
