First week in the books
I started LC my way on Jan. 2 and lost 19lbs by 2/12/12, but the constantly being in the kitchen got really old. I would make the family dinner and while they ate make myself something else to eat (most of the time). I was making low carb breads each week mostly for my father who is diabetic, but I would have an occasional piece. Any way to story short I started reading along your thread and decided I wanted to give this a try. I've promised myself to try at least a month and see how it went.
I finished my third rotation of UD/DD yesterday and so I weighed this morning and I was down -1.5lbs from my lowest since starting LC.
I had a hard time believing the scale . I ate carbs all week including pizza and a hamburger. I knew the water weight would cause a gain, but to be down -1.5 I'm just so happy.
Can not wait to see what the next three weeks bring .

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!
JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

Lovely to see you here and enjoying JUDDD, it is so freeing!
Embrace a little hunger. It is the sign of healing.
Relax, rotate, reduce, rejoice.
Down Days are the cement that hold JUDDD together.
