WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: Start date: 11/17/2014
So, I caved....

and joined Weight Watchers, I was trying to do my own version (pattern) of JUDDD but I was still starving on DDs....I'm full of excuses.

So far Weight Watchers is working out good, I have been JUDDDing it a bit by using my 26 points (and a few of my "extra" points) on days where I need it and using less points when I can hack it. I still do a bit of "fasting" as I rarely eat before noon everyday, I think that is helping too. I'm still seriously considering JUDDD for maintaining after I get the weight off as I really do like the plan but need more DD calories to feel comfortable.

I've also been doing my physical therapy exercises for my newly diagnosed arthritis in my knee, I go twice a week and it has been helping a lot.

I still lurk on this board because everyone is very welcoming and helpful.

It's great that you've found something that is working for you, Becky! That's the important thing we all have to find. I'm glad you're still lurking and hope you'll keep posting and letting us know how it's going for you!

Way back when we had a Weight Watchers/JUDDD thread and some people had figured out their points for UD/DDs.

Actually, I think it's a great idea because of the fact that WW focuses so much on the GHGs (Good Health Guidelines). So, it's kind of a fun game to try to do DDs with getting in healthy oils and dairy.

Anyway, I applaud you! You gotta follow the path that works for you at the time. You are going in the right direction and this is a good thing!

See, I don't see it as caving. I see it as exploring different WOEs and making it work for you. You learned, from JUDDD, that you can maintain - so now you have a plan for maintenance. And you're using principles learned from JUDDD in our WW - a bit of WW/IF if you will.
Not caving. Caving would be throwing in the towel and eating a cake, 12 cupcakes, a pint of ice cream and 5 bags of chips. Every day. For the next year.
Hugs!

I hope you have found something that works well for you, Becky. All of us are trying to do the same thing--lose weight and get healthy. If WW is a better fit or easier, all that matters in the long run is results.

Like everyone else, I see it as on-going adaptation and tweaking.

ADF is not for everyone (I do 4:3) but there probably is a pattern of eating that will suit most people in managing their day-to-day food intake and we just have to keep tweaking that as it will change as our lives change.

I agree Slowsure ADF is not for everyone and it's a matter of finding the right program for you. I found my sweet spot with Fast 5. I always rejected the eating window IF's thinking I would just binge in those 5 hours, but I have not found this to be the case. Just the psychological aspect of knowing I can eat every day, and anything I wanted to if I so desire, has blunted my appetite or maybe just the magic of IF kicks in. In any case there is some definite blunting of appetite being experienced over time. I love this way of eating, teaches me discipline without being too uncomfortable and, my goodness, by the time 2pm rolls around I relish every morsel.

All these responses are exactly why I love this board!

I am really trying to find something that works and that I can live with long term, strait JUDDD was almost a perfect fit. Combining WW with a JUDDD-ish twist is working well so far, I look forward to reading that thread!

I posted in it as well, as that was right after my surgery and I was back to not losing! I've been swimming in the "what the heck should I try?" sea of misery and had been contemplating this angle yet again.

I hate that "sea", I think we are all looking for what suits us and what we can live reasonably comfortably with long term. Weight loss should IMO not mean suffering.

Becky, I agree. I can honestly live with JUDDD, doing it on my schedule (the one that worked for me before), but it gets frustrating not seeing any results. But ... I think I'm planning to try it again. It's so doable for me and I can't seem to stay away. I've been flying all over the place here trying to decide what I should try next :sigh: and I keep coming back here.

Beaky, that was so funny finding you there in Joedi's old thread. You too 'Nilla.

We do what works, that is the plan.

I will always choose to fast to some degree, for health reasons. But we all have our own route.

Don't stop posting!

I seem to be doing very well with WW, down 3 lbs from when I started, though I don't know "offically" how much till tomorrow as I'm switching my meeting/weigh day from Monday to Thursday. I have used less points on some days more on others and am not hungry, which is great as that used to be a major issue of mine when I did WW previously. I will keep reading and posting as I very much love this board!

Becky, are you doing WW on your own or have you gone to the meetings, got the books, etc.? I had some books but threw them all away.

I hate to admit it but this is about my 5th go around with WW. Last time I was doing strict JUDDD but was going to WW for the weigh in (keeps me honest with myself), went to most of the meetings at the beginning as I loved our leader. I'm going to meetings this time around too but am trying a different day as the Monday leader didn't "wow" me at all. I still have the books from my every attempt (I buy new ones each time...).
