WOE: 2003 calorie counting + ex./ 2012 Aug 25: JUDD
4 months JUDDDing

(in 4 days... on Christmas day lol)

Total lost 18.4 lbs... after the first week whoosh of around 5 lbs, and a first month total of 9 lbs, I have been averaging about .75 lbs a week... which does not seem fast (even dieting "half the time") given that my UDs are almost never UUAADs and I workout about 5-6 times a week. However, I am continuing to lose, and my waist has gone from 33 inches to 28.5 (only one more inch to go in waist goals re my old wardrobe from when I was at goal the first time).

At this rate, I should be at goal in about 3-4 months, which will coincide nicely with my trip to Turkey to visit my daughter who is on exchange there.

I still find DDs hard ... maybe I always will... not the whole day, but for parts of the day, I feel famished. And yet that JUDDD calm is there for the most part too, to ride it out, or if really need be, have another 100 cals to be able to settle (and especially, to sleep... I must say, my longterm struggles with insomnia are not aided by this WOE).

UDs are a joy... lol how I wake up and think "I get to eat today ", and with this freedom, I have very few UUAADs as there are no forbidden foods, and 2000 cals feels very luxurious compared to 500.

I posted my new dress and old coat pics on another thread and I loved getting so many sweet compliments and on Facebook too. It feels great to be starting to fit or almost fit into some of my nicest clothes


I really look forward to a weigh in in the New Year that puts me into the 140s, because then I am getting really really close!

Thanks again for all your support and this way to check in and be part of a common effort

Jan 29-Feb 14: Potato hack (plus dinner every other day)
Feb 15 onward: ? back to JUDDD... or calorie counting with intermittent potato hacks

Congratulations!! I commented on your dress/coat thread, and I'll say it again, You look FABULOUS!! DD's are hard for me too, but look where it got you! I think I can stick with it with this kind of incentive.

You're really doing great and have such a great attitude! And how wonderful will it be to travel to see your DD, looking and feeling great, and not having to be distracted by how your body is uncomfortable, or you feel you're not looking good. Because you will be looking GREAT!

Toora, fantastic! I can't believe you've been here that long already! It's such a great reminder that the time passes anyway. I might as well use it to do something good for myself.
Congratulations. And thanks for being here.
