Happy JUDDD-iversary Carly!

Okay so I hope I have the right day but I do believe Carly mentioned yesterday that today is her 1 year anniversary of starting this weight loss journey.

I think the reason it stuck with me is that today is my 1 month anniversary of starting JUDDD.

I am grateful daily for the Google search that led me to LCF and the JUDDD boards. I'd never heard of JUDDD before; I was on the Atkins Induction board trying to figure out why it Was. Not. Working!!! I looked down the list, saw JUDDD as one of the options, read some of the old threads (actually did this with several of the other plans) and thought, "This is something I bet I can actually do long term!" Posted a few questions, spent a lot of time reading and the rest, as they say, is history.

Part of the reason I wanted to write this today was because Carly's journey has been so inspirational to me. Not only the weight loss but the grace with which it was done, the continued support and good attitude. Not only from Carly but the other long term JUDDD Budds as well (Dawn, Cindy, Cindy, LCG, Jen, Soren, Adi, the potato gals, Sven - I know I'm missing some so my apologies to anyone I'm leaving off my list).

One of the things that struck me as amazing about this place is, in reading old threads, the unconditional support and affection. If I was trying to do this alone, there's no way it would happen. I wish I had the words to tell you all how much it means to know that there is a place we can go, say what needs to be said, ask what needs to be asked and feel safe to express ourselves in ways that, sadly, often can't be done IRL.

You guys are all my heros!!!

With much love & affection,
Jen

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CARLY. You are truly a success story! And a beautiful person. Congratulations on your success!
Jen I agree with you about being thankful to have found our way here. You and I started right around the same time. And I truly believe that it was more than just luck that we found our way here.

Aw... thanks! Today is my 1 year anniversary for the start of my weightloss, which was low carb and low cal. I did that from 2/21/12- 3/28/12 when I jumped into JUDDD with 2 feet and never looked back. So it has been a full year on my weight loss journey and all I can say is it has been an amazing ride. On 2/21/12 I was in such a dark and despairing place about my weight, health and appearance. I was humiliated and felt worse than your average 85 year old. From 2/21/12- 3/27/12 all I ate was celery during the day and at night 1 cup of lettuce w/ FF dressing and 3oz of talapia. I was miserable!!!!!
JUDDD was the answer for me and allowed me to lose another 62 pounds with less effort than the first 10 pounds that I lost on the celery and talapia diet.

I just want to thank all my JUDDD Buds from the bottom of my heart, because I never could have done this without you guys and LCF. I love checking in with all of you and I just want to share what was so freely shared with me when I was new.

Happy Anniversary, Carly..you have had amazing success and you inspire us all to want success...I know that you have had so much to deal with concerning your health, and I can understand some of that pain because I have a similar spine problem...I never knew how frightening life could be when you have to face the possibility of not being able to walk around freely, until I was diagnosed...You did not give up, you have continued to do all you can to help yourself..especially losing the weight, that becomes so much more important to us when we need it for health reasons. I agree with all the other people on here, that you are beautiful inside and outside, and it is so wonderful to see you succeed.
