Stats: Maintenance (maintenance range 120s)
WOE: JUDDD/5:2IF for WL & 16:8IF for maintenance
Start Date: Started this Whacky Journey in October of 2012
Got the sign I needed-I'm a JUDDDer for life!

I have not been able to recapture the JUDDD love, ever since the crazy holiday eating free for all I did. I went back on plan, but my heart just wasn't in it. I started feeling deprived on my DDs, even though I wasn't dealing with real hunger issues. I've been in a slump for weeks now and have spent hours researching other plans over the past few days. I know I've been losing weight with JUDDD, but for some reason I was beginning to feel too restricted by it.

Well, this afternoon I decided on a whim to try on the size 8 jeans I had bought a couple weeks ago, to wear at a later/thinner date. They fit perfectly. I admit I kind of lost it I am so pear shaped and the day I joined the lowcarb friends forum in october I was wearing a size 14 jean and was at my all time heaviest weight. The trend of women in my family is to start out thin and then in their 30's gain weight, 40's become obese, and 50's the multitude of health problems begin. I have broken that cycle and that's life changing for me.

So, I've gotten the mental reset I needed and I'm back at JUDDD with a passion I've also decided I'm going to keep up with it even after I hit maintenance. I'm a JUDDDer for life, because I know it works for me!

That's so wonderful! I am pear-shaped as well, but for me, I could only get into size 8 jeans when I am 125 lbs. (I'm 5'4") I must be super-duper pear-shaped!

I'm envious you can get into those jeans, and so happy for you!
