Pat, I'm glad you're going to see the doctor. Those upper respiratory things can really hang on. Oh yes, BTW....

: ON REACHING YOUR GOAL!!! Take a !

I'm sure being sick has a lot to do with your feeling "meh" about this momentous occasion. But it's not uncommon to reach a goal, new decade, new low and have a bit of an eating blowout. I've done it. I've read other JBs do it. I have no idea why we do it, other than we're . But at least we're all there together! Please do revel in this accomplishment. You deserve it!

Rigato, what a sweet comment! Yes, we are all good friends around here. It's a wonderful, unique place IMO. Join us?

Ailuros, how does that cute new tankini look on you?

Cindy, your morning walk sounds so nice, and so does a nice, soaking rain. I'm glad you have today off to enjoy it (you do, don't you??)

I have a busy Friday ahead of me, which is great for a DD. I'm really feeling my JUDDD mojo returning (thank heavens) and am ready to rock this DD. Iced tea, here I come!

San Marcos is such a lovely place. I'm sorry for your family's loss of their home and belongings. Sending up for them and their emotional healing.

I thought the same thing!! But I think it was just good editing of security camera footage. The company that put the cameras up did a great job. Wonder if they could capitalize on it?

Yennie, kudos to you for saying that, and also kudos to her for hearing it. It's rare that someone can be corrected and not just lash back out. Or maybe that's just me! I'll bet you had just the right tone in your voice. And I'll bet she won't forget it when she's on the phone to someone else with whom she's unhappy.

What did I do? Binge. My first binge since January of this year. I didn't feel the thrill (at seeing my goal weight) that I felt w/ entering the new decades as I lost my weight. I didn't feel any sense of accomplishment. I just was rather numb. I didn't cry with joy as I have on several occasions during this journey. I am so confused abut myself. Maybe it has to do w/ being so sick? I just dunno. It was not a full blown binge as I was able to stop myself and fast the rest of the day. But it was surely eating my feelings and eating junk and eating with no thought or control. I am sure that today will be a rough down day as I am NOT nourished (I don't think Cheesecake is good preparation for a smooth down day LOL) I have lots of work to do as losing weight is not the sum total of the battle I face.
Oh, and since I am a lover of irony: I JUDDDED myself in a complete circle. When I started this journey I had very few clothing items to choose from and now I am in that very same boat. I blew past my 16s and didn't even notice that I have also blown past my 14s. I don't have one single pair of capris that fit for the summer. My 'tops/blouses' look like large bags on me. (Maybe that won't matter as it is actually spitting snow flakes here today) My nice jammies all fit well so maybe I will just spend my life in bed?! LOL
I have so much to learn about myself.
I thank God I have you guys to process this with.
How can I be 66 years old and still not peaceful with food after all these years?
All I want is to be at peace with my body and with my relationship with food......Just some peace.
Thanks for listening.
Big hugs all around.

Pat your reaction is SO NORMAL! If you were to look at my new lows on my weight/calories chart, I have done this almost every time I reached one. Stay calm and don't run away from yourself! Just be present to the feelings, even if you are eating about them. It becomes clearer if you let it. Which doesn't mean it's all fixed at that point, but it's a step in the process. I LOVE your honesty and openness! It helps me so much!!!

Funny about your clothes! Laugh and go shopping. I have been playing around with the "capsule wardrobe" idea and it's perfect for in the middle of losing.

We have been there many times for many lovely occasions. They built the home and have lived in it 34 years. DIL was raised there her whole life. Very, very sad day for all of us.

They had nothing but the clothes on their backs when evacuated.
Oh my God! I am sooo sorry! Several people I know had to evacuate but no one I know lost their home.

Yam - Yam - So very sorry to hear about your DIL's parents home. That is a horrible loss.

Yennie - I love your response. Not sure if I would have been able to stay so calm with someone yelling at me.

Pat - Congratulations on reaching your goal. I think it is pretty normal to celebrate and most of us use food to celebrate special occassions. At least you recognized what you were doing and then modified your behaviour so good for you.

Library Girl - Enjoy your Friday off. And great attitude about your test results. The important numbers are good and the other ones you can change.

We have Monday as a holiday day here in Canada so looking forward to a long weekend. One with two UD's

I got yelled at on the phone today from someone in Southern California who was unhappy with some test results she got.
Jen you are my kind of lady. Nothing works better than the calm polite put down... I am a specialist. I don't understand rudeness. Anger yes, but still these things should be handles with courtesy.

Dearest, dearest Pat, we all understand this post so well. You are a JUDDD Superstar don't you know? You have done so wonderfully well and reached your goal in record time. We are all on the same path and may never be at peace with food. But coming here helps us all.

A cheesecake binge is allowed now and then, perfection is just a dream.

I had to laugh at the irony of the lack of wearable clothes, but I bet you look great in your pyjamas!

Yam - Yam - So very sorry to hear about the loss of your DIL's parents home. I did not see that news but the fire sounds just awful. So glad they were able to get out unhurt.

Yennie - It took a lot of guts to tell that lady the truth about her behavior.

Pat - Congratulations on reaching your goal. I think it would be good to celebrate it in a nonfood way in addition to your cheesecake event just to have something good to associate with it. It was good to read some of the others' responses to your post. I also tend to be mystified by my binge episodes which make no sense to me at this point in life. I also wonder if there will ever be an end to them.

Have been thinking on this article a friend shared with me a few days ago. I could not find a link so hope it is okay to quote it this way. Phillip Chard is a psychotherapist, author and trainer. I think I fit the "moody" mold he describes. It was a gentler assessment of the problem than I usually see.

Quote:
A Mentor may just motivate the moody
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, May 13, 2014
_______________________________________

"Whenever I commit to making positive changes in my life, I end up not following through. One day, I feel fired up about changing this or that, but by the next day, I'm flat." This is how one client explained his quandary.

Many of us resolve to improve our lot in life, either by pursuing a positive goal, kicking a bad habit, or moving on from an unhappy circumstance.

But for many of us, personal transformation doesn't get beyond the "I think I can" stage. And even when we do manage to push ahead, our efforts are often short-lived. It is all too common to drift back into old habits or retreat from the precipice of that big life decision.

Why is it that some of us can feel deeply committed to making a change one day, only to find ourselves dead in the water the next?

Is it procrastination? Are we simply lazy?

Do we suffer from indecision?

Have we no will power?

Well, for many, it's actually about being moody.

Folks who maintain a pretty even emotional keel usually don't waver much in their attitudes, decisions and commitments. All things being equal, when they make a choice one day, the probably make the same one a week or a month later. We call this "consistency," and it is widely lauded.

In contrast, moody souls have to grapple with their emotional inconsistency. Such a person may feel upbeat in the morning, only to be grumpy and dour come the afternoon. For others, these rather dramatic mood cycles occur in minutes, not hours or days.

Being moody can make change more challenging. One moment, people may feel optimistic and, being energized, resolve to transform their life for the better, even making public pronouncements to this effect. Yet, soon thereafter, their mood having shifted, they may feel entirely different, to the point that those enthusiastic goals look unrealistic or outright naive.

Because of this inconsistency, such folks often get lambasted for being insincere or even disingenuous about wanting to change. In fact, they are merely exhibiting the underlying shifts in mood and motivation that alter their perspective and emotional posture toward their goal. They are being honest; it's just that their 'truth' keeps shifting.

What to do?

For many, being moody is part of their innate temperament. It's just who they are and should be accepted as such. Still, there are actions that can make it better.

By helping regulate stress hormones, both exercise and meditation smooth out the steepest emotional waves of mood swings. Nutritionally, an emphasis on grazing (eating small portions throughout the day) and anti-inflammatory foods helps counter moodiness by maintaining a stable blood sugar level. And getting adequate sleep is a must.

What's more, engaging a life coach or mentor can help a moody soul remain committed to personal change. This liaison provides an external source of determination and structure that helps offset a moody person's internal emotional gyrations.

Taken together, these steps can help transform moodiness into motivation.
Almost forgot. I went blond today which is what I used to be before grey prompted me to color (red). Will change my avi when I get a new pic. Also looking forward to reblasting the kidney stone on Weds. next. Then my sisters arrive from out of state for what may be our last reunion with all of us. (Health issues make travel difficult for several family members). Big goings on for a few weeks.

Rude lady follow up

So, to follow up on my friend I posted about yesterday.

The lady I talked to in SoCal had sold the dog in question to one of our clients. This morning, that client came in to apologize to us because the SoCal lady was so rude. Somehow, the lady in SoCal called the owner, but didn't actually hang up so a lot of her 1/2 of our conversation was on the owner's answering machine. Like an accidental 3 way call? No idea but anyway our client was MORTIFIED when she heard how that gal had spoken to us on the phone. Hee hee hee.

I'm pretty happy to be back to EOD right now. Today was a good, solid DD. The only thing I ate was popcorn. LOL. Night exactly high quality but its what I wanted and I made it work with my calories so, dang it, I had popcorn!

DH has bonded with the girl puppy. She is either going to have to go to a very special home where we know the family well, or she'll end up staying with us. I need to really verify the city ordinance. One place I read said 3 dog limit, and another place said there's a 4 dog limit.

Here's an updated picture, so you all can see her crazy ears (just ignore my messy kitchen). Her ears are ADORABLE. They stand up and point toward each other when she's alert or running.

And, she's eating like crazy, has normal puppy energy, and is just so sweet.

Thanks for all your prayers and comforting thoughts my JBs.

My in-laws were finally able to hike up to their home (well, where it was) last night. Everything is gone except for part of the garage and a couple of the arches are still standing but broken and burned. If you saw those arches on the news there were vines on them. The vines are all burned off.

DIL put a video of a helicopter filming the aftermath on face book and I was able to pause it, enlarge it and zoom in. I just cried. DS and DIL were married near there, wedding showers, baby showers, a place to stay when my relatives come to tour CA. DIL's parents are so gracious and open their home to everyone.

Just talked to DS and he is heading to San Marcos today to give support. They are already talking about rebuilding.

The family set up a web site where people can donate and so far they have raised almost $3,000 which is not much, but every little bit will help in a tragedy like this.

Sorry I'm rambling on but I have so much on my mind right now.

On a brighter note, DH has a swim meet in Palo Alto and I'm going to go with him today to cheer him and his Master's swim team on.

I need to go back and catch up on reading here. I skimmed and read some, but have not had much Net time.

Love you guys!

Here's an updated picture, so you all can see her crazy ears (just ignore my messy kitchen). Her ears are ADORABLE. They stand up and point toward each other when she's alert or running.

And, she's eating like crazy, has normal puppy energy, and is just so sweet.
OMG, she is so darling!!
I would have 100 dogs if my budget would allow for that luxury.
Thank you for caring about the puppies!
pets and hugs

DIL put a video of a helicopter filming the aftermath on face book and I was able to pause it, enlarge it and zoom in. I just cried. DS and DIL were married near there, wedding showers, baby showers, a place to stay when my relatives come to tour CA. DIL's parents are so gracious and open their home to everyone.

Just talked to DS and he is heading to San Marcos today to give support. They are already talking about rebuilding.

The family set up a web site where people can donate and so far they have raised almost $3,000 which is not much, but every little bit will help in a tragedy like this.

Sorry I'm rambling on but I have so much on my mind right now.

On a brighter note, DH has a swim meet in Palo Alto and I'm going to go with him today to cheer him and his Master's swim team on.

I need to go back and catch up on reading here. I skimmed and read some, but have not had much Net time.

Love you guys!
Love you, too, Yam Yam.
Many prayers for your family.

I just caught up!!!!!

Yam- Yam, I saw your in-laws on the news. Lots of prayers and good thoughts for all suffering with the fires.

Yennie- great work regarding the rude SoCal lady

Dawn- the puppy is adorable!

Pat- you have done just fantastically!!!

Cici- I liked that bit about moody people and decision making.

I had a very busy week. In fact, most of May has been non-stop. It's mostly all good, so no complaints other than my arthritis has been pretty brutal. I've been just pushing through it, but needing a bit of extra painkillers, which disrupts my sleep so I really have to do a cost/ benefit analysis every time to decide which is worse- the pain or not sleeping.

I can afford much more time right now, but I'll fly by soon again.

Hello fellow judders!!!I think it has been about a year since I have posted on JUDD long story short it was no wonder that I couldn't lose weight . In October of 2013 I was diagniosed with Ovarian Cancer. Surgury and chemo and 7 months later I am in remission. At the same time my sister was also diagniosed with the same cancer. Hers was worse than mine and chemo then surgery she too is in remission. God has been good to us and now I am going to start doing judd again. I can't wait to get reacquainted and aquainted with old and new buds and to have the support I had a while back..Hip Hip Hooray!!!

Hi Grammy! Nice to meet you. I am always so happy when I hear of people beating cancer. Kick its butt! Prayers for your sister!



Today I ended up going up to 1800 cals. not quite an UD, too much for a MD and way above my DD. Just so darn hungry. I have got to quit exercising on my DD. That's the only correlation I can make.
Does any one else here find that exercise just makes them very, very hungry? Will I adjust to this as I go on?

Tomorrow I'll have a reasonable UD and try again Tuesday with the DD. Get all my exercise in tomorrow!

So I have been trying to figure out how to proceed with my goals for losing weight and gaining strength and lowering my overall body fat % because I'm not sure that doing what I am doing right now, Nutritional Ketosis, is actually going to get me there. I have been leaning out all over but I think the constant super low carb is possibly causing me to hold onto more abdominal fat and it may never get where I want and I'll end up super lean everywhere else. I'm beginning to think that constant NK is keeping cortisol levels high, and possibly causing some hormone issue. Also I want to see if I can change some of the problematic cholesterol numbers I have gotten recently.

So I decided to try some different things to both fuel my workouts and add carbs back in. A while back I read the book The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferris and I tried out the Slow Carb Diet for a very short while and it worked, but I was dismayed at the time by the weekly spikes on the scale and it ultimately caused me to abandon that WOE and move on to Primal. But I want to try it again. Basically there will be no calorie counting, just eating based on hunger and performance, if I'm hungry between meals I'll make meals bigger or if I'm not performing during workouts or recovering fast enough again bigger meals. All meals will basically be some beans, a veggie and a protein source 3 times a day, no grains, no dairy, for 6 days. On the 7th day the first meal will be similar to the rest of the 6 days, but after that it is pretty much an intentional binge eating mostly carbs of any type and no calorie restrictions. There are some specific supplements that go along with it and some strategies to do damage control on the binge days. There are no exercise requirements but I'll continue on with my current exercise plan. I'll be tracking my weight and measurements weekly on Saturday, and take a BF % reading on my scale, to see how I'm progressing.

I plan to do this for the next 2 months and see what happens.

Mike, that sounds really interesting. You've lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time with JUDDD - pretty impressive. I suppose I assumed that once you lost weight your body fat % went down? No?
