Thanks Amber. .

Today is a good day!!!! Beginning of 6th day on JUDDD and feeling fine. I woke up to 210.6, a .4 loss after an UD!!! I will take it. 10.6 lbs lost since getting serious and starting back on January 2. I doubt that the diets good effects have kicked in after just 6 days but I feel amazing!!! So much energy. My plans are to start doing some cardio here at home and some weight training. And still get to Zumba hopefully once a week. I would love to go more but until we get some more money I just can't fit it into the budget more than once a week. So that's the plan.

Melanie you are doing awesome. How do you like counting your calories? I am reading more about JUDDD/LC and seeing how others do it. I have a hard time just counting carbs let alone calories. I must admit though through the years I have been tempted to give this a whirl and if I mess it up I could always go back to counting carbs.

Just wanted you to know that you are doing great on this WOE!

Amber. It's Delish. I'm not sure how far it goes for sure...but I know my grandma started it with her kids and then my mom did it and now me and the girls do it.

Magie. So far so good. At first I thought I would have the biggest problem with the counting calories but so far it hasn't been bad. If I can't find the calories I go to a tracker and look it up or search in google. Usually I can find it. I figured I would try it for a month and go from there.


CeeCee. Thanks. I'm sure trying.

Jayce. I am really liking JUDDD. Have a great day too.

Here's the plan for today.

Coffee with 2 tbsp half and half (35)
Protein shake. (160)

4 oz of roast beef (176)
2 cups of lettuce. (16)
2 tbsp of Italian dressing (60)
Maybe some cheese on salad and a green pepper. Maybe some celery at 12 calories for a whole stock.

DH decided to give it a try with me for 5 weeks. We were just talking about it yesterday and he decided. So today we are doing a DD together so we are on the same rotation. The booger gets 2792 on UD and 598 on DD but he is going to try for 500 to start.

Oh men, why do they always have the advantages when it comes to the whole weightloss thing? They loss faster, they get more calories. Good to hear he is giving JUDDD a try, makes for good company.

Good work, Melanie!! Try to beef up your lunch calories a bit - maybe 500? That way you don't feel so rushed to get in as many at the end of your day. Add a piece of toast with the soap or some rice to the chili for example.

Oh goodness Amber I certainly hope she doesn't add "soap" to her WOE. I am sure soup would be better.

3 weeks in and I have lost 11.6 lbs. I'm really liking the flexibility of JUDDD. .

Yesterday was a little hard. It was an up day and I had a good bit of calories still after breakfast. We went to a luncheon yesterday. I wasn't sure of the calories until I could get back home and check it out on a tracker but I made good decisions. Ended up having a good UD. DH however had a terrible UD and it ended up being an UUAD. I'm hoping he will get the hang of things and portion control or this won't work for him. I tried to caution him but he just wasn't listening.

Danielle. So far I'm not so sure. I'm glad hubby is taking a chance with me.

Amber. Thinks for the advice. I will definitely try that. . But no soap. Lol.

Magie and CeeCee. No soap here. Lol.

Seriously..... I just posted a long post and its being reviewed for some reason. I didn't swear or say anything I shouldn't be. I don't know why....so once its approved or not my post will be here.
Post is above this one. Apparently I can't mention tracker names.

Geez Louise.

Yesterday was a good DD. I stayed under my calories but didn't drink enough water. Today I am chugging the water. The scale didn't move this morning and I was a little disappointed.... But I got over that fast. I need to be happy for how much I has lost so far and enjoy the journey. I ran into two colleagues last night that I hadn't see in awhile and they both couldn't believe how much weight I had lost. I wore that brown print dress last night with tights boots and sweater.

I have had an ache in my upper back for the past couple days. I don't know what's wrong. If I pulled a muscle or what....but it hurts to breathe sometimes. I took some ibuprofen today hoping it will go away. Otherwise I will be going to the dr soon if it does not get better.
