Hi I am still here. I will check back with my goals soon.

I am going to start the potato hack. I can not do this with the rotations of Judd cause I can't get my up day calories high enough. My plan is 5-7 days then back to Juddd rotation. Is ok to hang out here even tho I am hacking??

Start wgt 146.

Sure, the more JUDDD buddies, the merrier. I'd love to hear how your potato hack goes; I haven't tried that yet myself. Sounds like you might get a nice whoosh as a new year's present to yourself under your plan; I hope so.

Alright I am in ..this challenge needs to start today before I have anymore UUADs eek!!

Goals for the challenge:
- STICK to rotations (DD: 500 cals / UD: 1800 cals)
- NO UUADs (I think this will help if I stick to lower carb on UDs..)
- Exercise a min. of 4x a week
- HAVE FUN!!!!

Goal weight by Vday : 158 (out of the 160s!!!)

SW: Dec 29: 171.6 (holding on to a lot of water)

Week 1:
Workouts - 0/4

So many new challengers!!! This is going to be fun!

I stuck to my 400 cal DD yesterday and today I did my 30 day shred. Only 29 more to go before V Day!

Anyone else find it hard to exercise vigorously after a low DD? Sometimes I just don't feel sufficiently fueled even though I clearly have 40 pounds of fat my resistant body could tap into (and I hope it does), I feel draggy.

I am in maintenance but would really like to drop from 2-4 more pounds by Valentine's Day. 140 would be a nice number. I should exercise but won't make promises to myself.
I am doing potato DD's which I am finding very easy since I don't have to think.

Did the One Mile Test on my treadmill to see what my fitness level is, sad to say I tested "poor" lol. 17:35...and I was running for brief periods of time
Am going to officially start my 3 days a week Monday, but now at least I have a number to improve.

Another goal for the new year is to keep carbs low. I've let them slide slightly in December, but going to go back to under 40 a day with JUDDD, and try to keep below 10 on DDs.

Hi all -- we had some snow again. I spent 10 minutes in our backyard running with the dogs chasing me! It's hard to run in the snow - totally out of breath!!! Later, did 5 minutes of hula hoop (that's all I can do without it dropping to the floor!!) Then did one of those 10 minute solution for pilates dvds. They are in 10 minute segments - so I did 2 of them. Total 35 minutes and still haven't done the driveway yet!

I have a question since I've never done a challenge. How do you track - other than saying you did it. Should I include it as a countdown thingy or what?

back on track

had a good MD yesterday, which at 1250 was prolly about half what I had been indulging in for about 6-7 days... and lots of fruit and veg, which is always good for digestion, esp. regularity (tmi, but all those cookies and chocs etc do me no good whatsoever re bowels... ugg). I guess my mouth doesn't care about my a$$ (function or size ).

today is first DD, and so far, just coffee, although it is only 10 am. I am committed though, and being in this challenge is exactly the camaraderie I need

one thing I did do with some of the more delectable and rare (eg made my my mom once a year) treats, was vacuum seal a few and freeze them for having one with a coffee on an UD (rather than Last Supper scoff them to not miss out... but true).

will workout today with some new tunes... favorites so far are

I have a few things on my list I would like to accomplish by Valentine's Day.
1- enter what I eat in an online diary (i do paper and pencil now)
2- Use my treadmill again!! (planned on doing this sooner... but a shoulder/neck pain has gotten in the way... FINALLY starting to get better with that)
3- Only one UUAD allowed per week. Stick better to my UD calories. I give myself a limit of 1850. Already higher than the quoted number I got, but I still lose with 1850.
4- Do 1 4-day potato hack before I go to St. Maarten, my neighbor who works with me is going to do this with me!!

I am going to update my stats!!! I am NOT at 127 anymore!

Well I need to put my goals down soon. I keep thinking I want to make sure they r achieveable. I have a bad habit of making them too big. So here goes

1. Potato hack for 5-7 days
2.Keep upday calories in check
3. Stay away from sugar!! It triggers UUAD
4. Yoga class 3 days a week
5. Just see the scale move downward. I do not care how long it takes just want to go steady downward.
6. Try not to be all or nothing!!

Knowing that I was going to report in on this challenge thread was the motivation I needed to do two Jane Fonda Prime Time workouts ("Firm and Flex" and "Fit and Strong") this morning. Because the workouts end with stretches, I always feel really good at the end of them and ask myself, now why did I have to force myself to start that?

Have a good day, JUDDD budds. It's great to have so many of you participating in the challenge, now or after New Year's Day.

Those are great goals, JKat. Despite knowing better, I find myself doing back of the envelope calculations on "By x date, I could/should be at y weight." I really need to be happy about steady downward progress, and not set myself up for disappointment if things don't change as fast as I would like. I feel so much better now than I did a year ago, that I really will be happy even if it takes me a long time to get close to my final goal weight.

I would love to join too! Great idea.
My first goal is to get closer to 145 pounds hopefully getting there by Valentines Day.
My second goal is to do regular exercise beyond cardio. I want to start with push-ups (can't do one!) so this seemed like a good place to start. My lifetime record is 4 so I am going to have that be my first goal. I hope to be able to do more by the end of the challenge.

The Prime Time DVDs by Jane Fonda seem very gentle to me. Jane leads the exercises (and she is in her 70s now, and looks great), along with 3 other women in their late 50s or 60s. There is no jumping around; the warm-ups are marching in place and stretching. There is a little bit of floor work (maybe 3 minutes worth) that might be challenging for your back (modified plank and modified push-up), but that could easily be skipped. Mostly there is work stretching while holding onto or sitting in a chair and/or using light hand weights (3 or 5 pounds would be fine, I use 8 pound weights). I have used her "Firm and Tone" and the "Fit and Strong" DVDs, and I like them so much that I plan to order the other 3 in the Prime Time Series (walking, yoga, and cardio). Jane is very encouraging and clear in giving directions, and she encourages people to follow proper form and not push themselves too hard (not so much that it hurts).

Another alternative that might work for you are the Leslie Sansone walking videos. Qi Gong is also very, very gentle; I like the Ken Cohen qi gong DVDs. Angie Miller's Cardio & Strength for Seniors DVD is also very gentle.

You can see clips from the Fonda videos on the collage video website (google to find it). I hope you find something that works for you.

I want to join. My goal is to be in the 130's by Vday. That is 4 or more lbs. Writing it out seems like such a small number but in my head it seems huge. The last time I was in the 130's was about 10 yrs ago.

My second goal is to do some kind of exercise or streaching 5 days a week. I'm not sure what I'm going to do just yet. I have to stick to lower body because I hurt my shoulder. I should probably make it a goal to do rehab exercises for my shoulder.
