I know you all heard it...

The celebration this morning in FL @ 5:45 am when the scales read 158.9!! I went and got my husband out of bed to see the scales and that low number. He was thrilled for me, but was not thrilled to miss his last 15 minutes of sleep. I feel light as a feather and ready to go all the way to 145! I have never felt this is more doable than I do now. The JUDDD magic has definitely kicked in.

Tomorrow will be 6 weeks of JUDDD and as of today I have lost just over 10 pounds. The first 3 weeks I did a set schedule so I had a MD on Sat and UD on Sun. I was faithful to my DD, but I went a little crazy a few times on UD, like 300 or more than I was alotted. But after seeing many post about doing strict rotations to start I recommitted to doing the strict rotation until I reach goal and then I can adjust as needed. It has really made a difference in the losing. I have respected my UD and DD calories for over 2 weeks and stayed with a strict rotation and I am seeing the results.

Thank you all for sharing your stories and advice.

Thank you for celebrating this milestone in my journey!

LOVE to hear this!!!

I am another who learned how important strict rotation is! Although I mess up my rotation now and then, the best is staying true to numbers!

Still at goal 2/6/13
Changed to LCHF after becoming diabetic in 9/13 (Lost 15 more pounds).
STILL below goal 11/21/15

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.

Okay Melissa, less of that celebratory noise, disturbing my sleep over here in the UK. (Okay so I am ahead of you in time, but I learned long ago, never spoil a good story with the truth!)

But seriously :jump joy:

Work the plan and the plan will work for you. You have proved it.

Embrace a little hunger. It is the sign of healing.

Relax, rotate, reduce, rejoice.

Down Days are the cement that hold JUDDD together.
