Erika1962 04-02-2014 01:21 AM

Good morning all!


For April I will try my luck at calorie cycling, kind of like the JUDDD principle, actually more like 4:3, just not as restricting on the lower days. I will have lower days 700-1000 calories, and then higher days, around 2000 calories, trying to average 1400-1500 a day if calculated for the week. Technically that should give me a loss of about a pound a week, if not I will have to recalculate the calories. I have to try something to shake this tired body up! I know there will be big fluctuations in weight every day, but heck, I have to try, at least for this month!


GOAL WEIGHT FOR APRIL: To lose 4 pounds would be nice!


TUE---4-1---186.6-----1900 calories

Erica...i used to do that plan...always like it,it doesn't limit you to food.You can eat whatever you want as long as it portion and counted...your laughing ;)

Joanne..not too far from your goal weight but those last 5-10lbs are the hardest to get rid of..

:hiya:Maryann...watch that sodium this month...

:hiya: Autunm...keep on losing girl...doing great

hopetolose 04-02-2014 06:34 AM

Good morning to all - Maryann, Erika, Autumn, Mommy, Joannew.

Maryann, that sodium is a killer - I just can't handle it and it really messes me up, too.

I am still hanging in here. Looks like everyone is doing pretty well and congrats to all of the losers.

My goal again is to be under 140 this month. I have been doing Atkins this past week along with calorie counting and seems to be working for me as I am down 3# and my clothes are really getting looser. I have just had to get rid of all of the carbs I was eating on regular calorie counting in order to really lose these last few #'s.

I don't weigh daily anymore as that is discouraging with the fluctuations that I have.

Have a great day!!

AutumnReigns 04-02-2014 11:30 AM

:hiya: Everyone

Down 1 pound today.....Erika I've been thinking about trying the 4:3 too....I did try the 5:2 and I only maintained....when I reach goal I will probably do 5:2.

Joanne....nice drop :jumpjoy:

Erika, I'm doing the exact same thing.. Been doing it a couple weeks now and it seems to be working for me.. Thought I would join so I could see how we both are making out with the 4:3.
I do:
Down Days (about 500-700cal) Mon/Tues/Thus
Medium Days (Wing Night!!! 1000-1500 cal) Wed/Sun
Up Days (about 1700-2300cal) Fri/Sat

I only count my Friday morning weigh in as my weight for the week since it's so bouncy, but I do weigh every day.. Just coming off of a 4lb gain from my Up Days on the weekend, finally lost that so now hopefully I can drop enough the rest of the week to show a loss! :aprayer:

Erika1962 04-03-2014 01:27 AM

Good morning everyone!

Well, I am happy to report that I met my OCTOBER goal :hyst: I broke the 185! Got to pay real good attention now since this is the point my body is really trying to hold on to.


GOAL WEIGHT FOR APRIL: To lose 4 pounds would be nice!


TUE---4-1---186.6-----1900 calories
WED--4-2---187.0------600 calories
THU--4-3---184.4------


Joanne...Way to go on ditching that sodium!!!

Mommy...You are off to a fabulous start already!!!

Hope...It is so good to see you back!!!

Autumn...Congratulations on another pound lost!!!

Maryann...Great job on holding! You are so right, JUDDD is too extreme in calories, I think my updays should be 1800ish and my down days 340 or 350, that's not nearly enough to function, at least not for me. I think 2 500 calorie fasts or 3 at 800 are a lot more sustainable than 350 every other day.

Krista...:welcome: to our little group! Looks like we got identical plans here!- I also started almost 2 weeks ago after coming across some threads about 5:2 on my calorie counting site. Did some more searching and found a HUGE support group on the book with the faces (LOL) There are over 9000 members and growing daily! I did some lurking, lots of reading and liked what I read. They don't make it as complicated as JUDDD does. Most of them eat 2000 calories for 5 days a week, and 500 for 2 days a week, or 2000 for 4 days, and 800 for 3 days, this should average out to about 1 pound loss. BUT, when you read all the postings (if you can keep up with them) people have fantastic results with it! I figured I give it a shot, nothing else has worked the past six months, so I really have nothing to lose but the weight!


Have a great day ladies!!

Good morning everyone!

I have been up since 3 am, don't know what is wrong with me, I have not been sleeping well at all since we changed the clocks to springtime, shouldn't I be sleeping longer? :stars: Anyways, I am here to report my bounces :lol: Got very snacky last night, and all sweet stuff, so I think TOM on his way. The bad news is I ate too much, good news is I had prepared myself and bought sugar free candy, so at least I left the snickers bars and milkyways alone, rice crispy cereal for dinner :stars: One would think I am getting to old for this...

THURS 4/3... 153.5 (1070 cal)... Oooooooops..:o
FRI 4/4... 155 (997 cal)?? Still debating dinner/lunch.

Totally screwed up my low day yesterday..
Let my not want to cook get the best of me and ended up going for vietnamese. I know better and I ALWAYS have a gain after vietnamese but I just love it. Also doesn't help I was really retaining my fluids yesterday.. Meh.. Today is another day! Hubby is skiing so he'll be home later (and tired) and hopefully I can make today a low day instead and have a drop in time for my high day Saturday. Maybe even squeeze in a workout?!
OOOOooooooo.. Ambitious!! :laugh:

Maryanne - Good luck switching over to JUDD.. Hope you find it will bump that scale for you!
Erika - Is there something in the air? Have had such a hard time sleeping last couple of days.. Very frustrating!
Joanne - Great loss this month so far!! :up: Way to go!
Tammy - So hard to pass by those temptations!

tay65 04-04-2014 06:10 AM

Krista ~ I've never eaten Vietnamese. I don't think there's even anywhere around my place that has it. What do you eat? Take out always is full of sodium. Water, water and more water!

Cudabear 04-04-2014 06:14 AM

Oh it's all sorts of bad.. Not so much sodium as chinese food but not great either and chalked full of carbs.. (calorie count isn't terrible, but too high for a low day)
I always eat grilled pork w/ springrolls on vermacelli noodles w/ Hoi sin, Hot Sauce & Fish Sauce.. Really should have at least taken out the spring rolls, but I didn't :)
