Uggg - bad bad DD.

First, I had a disappointing UD yesterday. I'd scrolled back a few pages and saw that that is pretty common - but, still, no fun.

I've been stalled for quite a few days.

Then, today, my DD - which had gotten progressively easier - has been rough. I was hungry from the moment I woke up, and coffee did not help. I ended up feeling so nauseous with hunger (huh???) that I went off my grand DD plan and grabbed a salad (I did forego the yummy avocado and egg and blue cheese and just ate veggies).

We all have those from time to time. I never really saw any rhyme or reason to mine, but others have reported good losses after a really hungry DD, so I hope that's what's happening to you.

JUDDD got me where I want to be!

Sorry you're having such a rough DD. I think we've all been there a time or two. But it sounds like you made a smart decision with just the salad!

I agree, you made a good choice with the salad. Every now and then there are some hungry DDs. I find broth or tea can really help.
JUDDD changed my life. It transformed my health, gave me freedom and restored my confidence.

JUDDD is very simple, very livable and very flexible. JUDDD allows weight loss and life to happen simultaneously.

Don't worry- up to 35% of your UD calories are still classified as "Wt Loss Mode"
Even 40 and 45% of your UD day calories are considered "Wt Loss/Maintenance
Mode". You just had a higher DD- not a failed one at all...

If at first you don't succeed, try doing it by the book...

Yep, I have had some rough ones out of the blue lately and caved on some fruit. At least you didn't throw in the towel and go hog wild!! a salad is hardly a bad thing, no worries!!!

I've had a few rough hungry ones here and there, but I've found that if I can manage to stick to 400 cals on a rough DD, I am rewarded with a big whoosh down on the scale the next day. I have no idea why that is. But now when I'm über hungry on a DD I remind myself that I'll be a lower weight tomorrow and then I drink a ton if water, tea and broth or have some extra greens like you did.

Yep, me too - there have been a few really white knuckle DDs. I too seem to see a loss the next day, so when I'm feeling that gnawing in my stomach feeling, I just think about the fat that is burning at that very moment and try and focus on the fact that my body is eating itself!
