I printed out your information too! I've started a journal as Dr. J suggested so will put all information I get into that so I can keep it straight. I like SIMPLE!
Sounds like a plan! Me too. Simple is all I can handle at right now!

My history:
I have been on a diet since 9th grade and Have always had to watch what I eat. Weight Watchers lifetime by 12th grade. Lost 100 pounds in 2003 on 72 Akins. 75 have come back... I really love what I'm reading about JUDDD. I can do anything for a day! I started back on Atkins last week, but it's just not clicking. So I'm all in!
Hope you love it here. I sure do.

Lots to think about - although it would be a mess in other ways, I might be better advised to stagger the surgery so that the first two are done separately. I might then be able to form an opinion as to how well (or otherwise) I'm recovering and healing and then form a view as to whether I would like the other 2 joints done together to try and reduce the overall rehab time.

It looks like the shoulder joints will need somewhere from 6-12 months to recover and I won't be able to do much for a while. At the moment, I'm not sure that DH grasps the scale of this - it's not just that I won't be doing my usual activities or will have to time things for work purposes, but I'll actually need assistance bathing and dressing.

It feels like quite a big chunk of my life will be put on hold to do this but it's not clear that I have much choice as the ligaments and tears will just deteriorate if they're not fixed and they're not amenable to physiotherapy or other non-surgical interventions. (This is why I need a second opinion or two.) It's taken me so long to feel right after my last accident that I'm deeply reluctant to undertake anything that needs a lengthy recovery.

I have some thinking to do but there's a lobster with my name on it.
I hope that lobster was the best you ever ate, but I am more sorry that I can say about your medical news. Your head must truly be swimming with information to absorb and decisions to make -- like what to fix first! I wish I had some wisdom to impart, but I really don't except to say that for a long time after I had my knee replaced last September, I had to rely heavily on my arms to push myself out of my chair and to help myself out of bed, etc. And that was with just one knee being done. (They haven't yet managed to catch me to do the other, and as long as I'm fairly mobile, they won't. But I'm sooooo glad I did the first one.) Trouble is, your shoulders are in such bad shape that using them to help yourself up could be a problem! You truly are between a rock and a hard place. Hopefully your doctor will help your husband understand how to care for you. My niece, who looked after me following my surgery, went to the doctor's with me to learn what was involved.

Well, keep us posted. This is one of those times I wish we were all closer in actual distance -- we could form a "take care of Slow" team to help with some of the load.

Here's hoping the second opinion will be more upbeat!

Slow Sure, I'm so sorry for all of the surgery you might be facing. After going through 8 surgeries to repair broken bones from being hit, I know exactly what you are in for. Hubby still has to help me with some projects. He is a dream, though. Hopefully yours will be the same.

Yam Yam, so sorry we are not back in Honolulu yet! Would so have loved to share Mai tais and dinner with you as well as give you a hug. Next time.......I'm just so glad you are able to go. Hope you are feeling better.

Kissa, so sorry your daughter is still having issues. She is so fortunate to have you for a mother.

I know several others are having very trying times with children and relatives. My heart goes out to everyone with challenges.

Our trip was an eating and wine fest. There is no other description. I got on the scale yesterday morning after traveling 23 hours and the number was not very pretty. I had a DD as I just couldn't eat any more rich food. Today the scale showed a drop of 5 pounds....yes 5 pounds. It was travel bloat, so I think I didn't do too badly. I found it relatively easy to only eat a bite of desserts most evenings. Deserts were not served at lunches most of the time. I ate a lot of fresh fruit. The fruits and veggies in Croatia were unbelievable. Coming from Hawaii where everything is shipped in, fruits are not wonderful.

Hubby has said he only wants salads for dinner with chicken or some other protein so food preparation will be minimal for us. I'm definitely out of the habit of cooking!

The second half of our trip was a barge trip on the Burgandy Canal. It ranks up there as one of our best trips! The scenery was spectacular. Hubby walked several miles everyday as the barge went from lock to lock. I watched the world go by. The small French towns were charming. We explored several of them.

Thanks to JUDDD we should be back to our starting weight in a week or so. It is so nice to know you can enjoy special occasions once in a while and get right back to normal eating!

Sorry for the long post, but I am so happy to be back reading about my JUDDD BUDDD's

Hugs for everyone
Welcome back! It sounds like a fantastic trip, and I enjoyed hearing about it. My dad and stepmother did some traveling by canal boat in the UK, and had a wonderful time.

Oh My, Slow, looks like when it rains it really pours! What a bummer and in spite of all this you are still one of the most supportive and considerate JBs on the board! 2nd opinions are definitely called for but knowing the British health system they are much more reticent to go for drastic measures without a real cause. According to DH shoulder surgeries are a little trickier than knees. Are they talking about total knee or some part? Incidentally, that's what DH is doing today, he's the gas man. I just hope and that every thing works out for you.

The lobster was fresh, sweet, and cooked to a turn. There was a special Cornish event in London and the restaurant was selling Cornish food for 3 days with a daily fast delivery of the lobsters, fish and dairy.

We went for coffee and dessert (DH had dessert) in a recently-opened Italian independent eating/coffee shop. Excellent coffee and about the best tart pastry that I've seen in a long time (perfectly thin and crisp). Their pizza looked like it was slow fermentation dough with the excellent spotting that you get from a properly-fired oven.

It's so refreshing to see a non-chain coffee shop open and such a high-quality one. They're adjacent to one national chain on one side (Costa) and 3 shop-fronts away from a Starbucks. I don't know how well they'll manage to compete with those but I hope that they survive as their food looks skilfully baked and the coffee is excellent.

The barista must have heard me say something about the pastries as she brought us complementary tiny little shortbread stars to have with our coffee and explained how she'd made them herself but her sister had made the tart pastry that I'd been admiring.

The lobster was even better than I'd hoped. And, yes, how well you know me, more and more questions are occurring to me.

It's the stupid practicalities of things like getting up from chairs or turning over in bed if you can't put any weight on one of the joints. And being limited in what you can do with the unaffected arm in case you have a counter-force pull on the affected side.

If I knew that the world was ending, my dinner, should I have the opportunity, would be lobster, crab or langoustines, depending on which was in season and accessible.

Yes, I absolutely need to know there aren't any non-invasive options before I consent to such a huge disruption.

My DH is splendid in so many ways but he's not at all practical and he has always had such perfect health (fortunately) that he doesn't understand pain or physical limitations. [I had to edit out the rest of this as it sounded like I was blaming DH but I really think this is something he is incapable of grasping.]

In summary:

We still have left over house maintenance problems from the last accident because I always used to do the DIY and maintenance and he didn't look after that while I was unable to do so.

I'm concerned that he'll feed us take-aways or ready-meals because he'll never feel like cooking, particularly after his commute.

I'm worried about house maintenance, housework and our WOE.

It was a delight in every mouthful and I scraped every bit of meat out that was possible.

You're exactly right about not being able to use the arms to lever myself up when I have my knee done. I do that at present and it's not helpful - but that's a mix of the joint problems and the sarcopenia, I think.

The team sounds delightful, tho' I think that more of you would end up taking up water sports than you'd like - I have visions of you taking turns to fetch me out for canoe trips so that I can watch the wildlife on the local canal and lake.

I may well talk to my GP about whether there are any recommended companies. It might be quite expensive quite quickly tho' as I think that they have to work in pairs.

It's not a TKR (total knee replacement) as my bones are decent (thankfully). The problems are that I have bucket-handle tears in the ligaments/cartilage of the knees and they're so extensive that they can't self-repair but nor can they be left alone. I've lost some ligament connections to the muscles which have made the knees very unstable and I sublux them several times a day, just by turning over in bed, while walking or standing up. This isn't the age-related degeneration but is looking like an injury that I picked up in last accident that wasn't caught and has now torn so much that it's developed these complications.

The SLAP tears in the shoulders are mixed and are somewhat complicated by a couple of congenital issues but those joints are likewise unstable and can sublux just by me picking up a cup. I've likewise got problems with connections to the biceps muscles and have started not being able to hold items without dropping them (not consciously, my arm just spasms and it drops).

Good Morning All!!!

Thank you so much for all the questions all of you answered for me yesterday! I made it through my first DD!!

Today I'm supposed to have 2651 Calories....sounds so high! But I've put in my numbers three times on the website just to make sure.

Today I've started with a big breakfast = 860 Calories.

Does it really make a difference what we eat on our UD's? as long as we count the calories?

Slowsure, Your lobster sounds wonderful!!!

I'm just lurking but that 2651 seems very high. I'm 5'-6" and if I input your weight you have listed (235 lbs) it comes out around 2100 calories. That's using no exercise and 20% weight loss mode. Your height and age doesn't affect it that much. If you can tell us your height, weight, age we can double check for you.

back to lurking

10 years ago today I became a Mom We aren't doing much of anything today, but this weekend.
I switched back to sugar free (for the most part) and quit eating bread just five days ago again, and today - I woke up feeling good for the first time in 6 weeks. The scale dropped 4 pounds too.
May be I am one of those 'carb sensitive' folks?

So excited about the kids new school year. We find out who their teachers are today. I feel peace about it, which is what I have been praying for. Husband and I got to spend
some quality time together last night which is really what we needed.

I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me and, I can handle these life changes.

Still not promising I won't be a blubbering mess come Tuesday! lol

SlowSure, I can think of far worse fates than getting (not having) to take you out in a canoe to view the wildlife. For a brief time I lived on a lake in Oregon, and once somebody took me out in a canoe. Viewing the world from that level was a beautiful experience -- it was the next best thing to being a duck. Alas, I probably couldn't get down into a canoe now. I've had a hip replacement, and have been warned not to bend too sharply lest I dislocate. My sister has dislocated her hip several times, and says it's about as much fun as childbirth.

Party, it does sound like you might be carb sensitive/insulin resistant. Could you also be sensitive to gluten? You don't have to have celiac for gluten to cause inflammation and other problems which leave you feeling generally rotten. Also, according to my chiropractor, people who are sensitive to gluten are often also sensitive to the casein in milk because the molecules are very similar.

Newtothis, what you eat on UDs might make a difference if you are carb sensitive/insulin resistant. Otherwise, let 'er rip.

As well has having a dh that is never sick. Of course we don't want them to ever be sick.
Sounds like you and me are twins.
I am so sorry your having all of the pain still.
Hoping time would help.
Since I got married 12 years ago, I've had one illness after another.
And was so tired of passing on fun because I hurt to bad to go do anything. Just getting through the day, simple things are mountain big.
My knees are so much better, thanks to the shots I got and will get again I am sure. But it's taken a long time.
Sister SS I ' d love to be in the team that gets to hang out with you, we would have FUN!
Missouri USA is far away from u, darn.
After praying for myself, I 'll pray for you and yours.
Good day my friend - hug

Oh, that sounds lovely. Next summer I'll be down enough to go in a canoe I hope.

I could be carb sensitive/insulin resistant. I don't know if it is that or if I just have been a little extra depressed lately? Maybe one is causing the other, and the vicious cycle goes.

I was just thinking last night, I have no reason to be depressed. I have all the crafting projects "To Do" that I could hope for, a home, my children are all happy and healthy, my husband loves me enough to jump in front of a train for me...Why am I having such a hard time getting motivated about life?
I don't know, but I have been praying hard with such desperation over all the misery in the world and my own misery, and today I just woke up lighter - figuratively and literally! lol

I still haven't put the cigarettes down, I've been trying - but not trying hard like I mean it - if that makes sense.
Just haven't had the mental focus to do it, and the self loathing that goes along with that is nearly unbearable.

Sunday I told myself, I'm just going to do 1 thing this week and I chose clean up my diet further.

I was able to get some sleep. Thankfully (sn)DD slept through the night last night!

I was beginning to wonder if I was having a mid life crisis!
Thanks as always for listening, ladies.

I don't post on you all's thread but thought I'd pop in here because I wanted to tell SlowSure that I really hope your knee issues get resolved as soon as possible. I am in the middle of getting hyalgan shots in both my knees because I have osteoarthritis and a torn meniscus. I am trying not to have surgery.. If my shots do not work this time I will be scheduling to have surgery between Christmas and the end of the year so I don't have to start all over with my deductible. Today was my 3rd shot. I get 1 shot in each knee, once a week, for 5 weeks. I did have the 3 shot one about 7 months ago and it didn't help me at all.. the 5 shot use to help me all the time so I asked my regular doctor (who always did them on me) if he would please do them. He doesn't do hyalgan shots anymore but made a special exception for me and ordered it. (I love my doctor!)

Anyway.. I really do hope something works for you soon.. I hate to see others hurting and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers..

Slow, I'm so glad your dinner and dessert were so enjoyable! I understand your nervousness about DH and whether he can fully comprehend it all. When you've only ever felt good, you just can't absorb what it feels like when you don't. I would love to be a part of a "come together to support SlowSure" team. I really do wish it could work that way!

Kati, I'm glad you're feeling better. And your new low today was so great to see! I'm sure as you start feeling better and better with the foods you eat, you'll be ready to give up the cigs again real soon.

Hello, everyone! Not sure anyone will remember me, as it's been over a year since I posted. I quit JUDDD to do a special healing diet for auto-immune problems. The diet was very helpful, but very restrictive. I am leaning towards combining my paleo with JUDDD now and hope to see some good results. Going to try and catch up by reading some posts.

As usual I have too much going on. There are two large events I am in charge of coming up in September and October. My husband just had major surgery on his mouth and throat and the stress has added six pounds. I certainly want to nip it in the bud and get it and all it's friends off instead of gaining.

Not only remember you but was talking about you quite recently because of your strength training and Strong Lifts programme.

So pleased to see you back and able to give an update to your JBs.

Ellen, I think I was just reading some of your old posts from way back recently. Anyway, your face sure looks familiar, and I'm fairly new here. Glad you're back.

Here's wishing y'all a wonderful weekend. My sister and I are leaving tomorrow to visit our aunt who lives way out west of San Antonio, and are debating whether to mosey down through the Hill Country and stop at Fredericksburg or one of the other neat Texas tourist towns where there are wonderful shops filled with beautiful items you don't see just everywhere, go down 77 and visit some historic churches, or head for the discount outlets at San Marcos. That place will be a zoo, especially with Labor Day sales on top of the regular very good discounts, but you sure can make a dollar go far there. Last I knew there were about 145 shops, and it seems like the place is always growing.

Lord willing, I'll be back, exhausted and broke, next week. Meantime, take care, everyone, and enjoy the tag end of summer.

Take care of yourselves and each other.

I'm so happy that you all are so very chatty! I can only lurk right now (school is kicking me right now, lol) and can't participate as much, but I love reading about how you are all doing. Good thoughts to those having health issues right now either with yourselves or family members!

And hope everyone has a great three-day weekend (if you're in the States).

Whew. I'm all caught up on this thread. I feel like I was just sitting with a huge group of friends in a very warm and loving conversation (which is exactly what it was!).
