I see. I've been lurking BIG TIME. I wanna be more active in the forums and journals but I don't now how to "get back" in, y'know?
I have an IRL friend who may want to try JUDDD and I told her I'd do it with her but I don't know if she's serious. Plus this group of friends are very food oriented with social food pot lucks everyother week! LOL. Tomorrow we are going to the Georgia Peach festival. Last week we picked strawberries. Next Month, We'll pick bluberries. Except for the peaches, those are all good low sugar fruit I love to eat.

Any way. I'm glad to see you and When I get my head back on straight I'll start posting in my Journal again.

How have YOU been, Dawn? How did your February P2 Go? I am gonna do a round since I crept up to a new high!

I have crept back up too. I feel I am just feeling sorry for myself. I have been eating what I want, when I want. And what I want is not healthy food LOL. A lot of chocolate is involved. Too much in fact. I had my hormone therapy appointment today, so I am inserted with what I need for the next 3 months. Next week I have blood work for my yearly physical, then *I* start hcg. I have gained enough to need 2 rounds. I am so embarrassed to have to need yet another round, let alone possibly 2. When are you starting P2? I am starting next Monday. Have to be thinner before we go away in July.

Oh, and we might be headed to Okinawa in late July!! The kids are so excited. If DH agrees to go, then we are going. She is buying us the tickets, so until she makes the reservations we don't know for sure if we are going or not. But I am hoping!!! We have passports ready.

Wow, how exciting to go to Okinawa. You'd definately want to be done with rounds by then.

I don't have a set plan yet of when to start, but I know I wanted to wait till the heat of the summer so I don't have the cold sensation.

I too am embarrased by my gain. A new personal High, and like you I ate whatever and it wasn't always healthy. I ate french fries and desserts and lots of new flavors, that part I don't regret. Now It's no longer novel and I can move on. I just wish that I had kept track and adjusted things before I gained more. I actually lost my scale for a while and realized how much I depend on that to keep me informed. I think I would have made some changes if I knew how much I gained. Also, since my neck is much better I have no excuse not to exercise more how I want. I hurt my neck in January big time, Chiro care, pain meds al lthe time. It sucked. i couldn't move my neck and my shoulder and back were in pain, so I pretty much quit moving and started gaining... Wait. I should be typing this in MY Journal.
Sorry Gracie!

Hmm, I should get some blood work done for myself, it's been a few years....

Sounds exactly like me metqa. Not caring about what I was eating. I wasn't low carbing, wasn't fat fasting, not JUDDDing.....nothing. My doctor (the hormone specialist I am seeing) is now suggesting I go gluten free. She says I probably have that intolerance going on. Nice to have someone suggest it, not so nice that I have to be so strict. Maybe this will kick my butt into gear so I can do something *this week* about my weight instead of waiting til next week.

Sorry about your neck too. I have back trouble so I understand not being able to move. The worst ever!!! Glad you got it straightened out though. Bummer you had to have pain meds. That sucks because Ii believe those things tend to wreak havoc on our bodies, more than anyone is willing to admit. I was looking forward to working out before my round next week and just remembered that I am unable to for a few days since I just had my pellets inserted. Cannot jiggle those things around and out of place

Even my BF noticed after a while and would say, Are you okay eating that, shouldn't you be low carbing like usual. In a way, I felt like "Naw, this is me eating regular food", but now He sees what can happen when I just "eat like everyone else all the time". He brags and others brag, but I don't over eat much, but I do gain weight If I don't at least intermittently diet for reduction even if it's just a few days to get back down a few pounds to keep weight gain from gaining momentum. Now BF says he'll back me in whatever I need to do to stay a healthy weight, even if he still won't exercise with me. LOL.

Yeah, my family asked me the same thing LOL. That is so funny. I guess they are so used to us eating a certain way that when we change it up a bit they wonder why. Oh well. Back to the grind. At least we know how to lose it, right You have been following the Dr Emma thread, right? That has the most interesting bit of information ever on hcg!! I am learning so much by being a fly on the wall over there.

Thanks.
I'm officially lurking there now.
I'm also down 1 Kilo, probably just because I had very little to eat and the previous days weight was from leftover dinner weight.

metqa--Dr Emma was the doctor who was on Dr Oz's show talking about hcg. Her plan, including recipes are on Dr Oz's website. She has her patients eat breakfast and lots of different veggies than Dr S allows. She is having awesome results with her patients as well.

PS I did a fat fast yesterday and will continue on this week. I am down some, but not sure how much as I did not weigh in yesterday. Getting ready to make some fat bombs now.

It sounds a lot like Omaha's plan, but with a few more fruits and the protein requirement being personalized. Actually my last round I DID personalize my protein based on my body weight and that made a lot of sense to me. Wow, the more I keep talking about it, the more I wanna start again, but I know I shouldn't rush into things. I thik I will start with the vial I've got and if I want to continue, get another vial when I need to renew my BirthControl prescription in a afew months. I'm so excited to lose some of this uncomfortable flab.

But the MAIN difference I got out of it on that thread, was the dosing of the hcg. She wants you to use a lot more than Simeons ever dosed. Very interesting.

I wonder what the medical logic of that is. So far I got as far as the argument about homeopathics. Now I have to leave for work so I'll work my way through it more later this evening. it's an interesting conversation and I'm only on page 6

Yeah, I had to kind of skip over that. I am very sensitive to anything negative about the homeopathic. But it does get interesting, so if you have to just gloss over or ignore that stuff. I had to grin and bear it. And you will find the logic in her changing doses, I promise!!! They get to that. Very good stuff!!!

OH, and btw there are 38 pages! So get to reading LOL.

Metqa!!

Dawn!!

Cindy!!

Three of my favorite people have visited me and I so happy to see you here!

Wow! To catch up with everything would be a gargantuan task, so I have to start from scratch!

I can now talk about Barbara now in my journal without feeling that I'm betraying her! As you know, she had asked me not to tell anyone that she was so ill. That was extremely difficult but I honored her wishes.

Folks wanted to send her well wishes, but she was vehement that no one know the extent of her condition. She wanted no e mails from anyone or any acknowledgement that she was so very ill.

She went downhill so quickly that when I found out that she had passed, it was a shock.

I'm still feeling a big void and very sad about her passing and think of her every day.

Hoping this is appropriate posting in my journal, but it does allow me to vent my sadness.



On another note, we just got back from a 10 day vacation, and I spent 7 of those days with my youngest daughter in Md. who I don't see very often. It was wonderful to be with her as if no time had passed at all.

Now, to the very related weight issue! UGH!!! In the past 2 months, I've followed no eating plan whatsoever eating whatever and whenever! When I was doing 2 days of JUDDD I was happily maintaining, but now I have to go back to weight loss mode. I'm up about 8-10 lbs., and as of today I'm in the zone!

Didn't renew my membership at my old gym but joined a gym that just opened closer to home. I'm still doing resistance training, and for some unknown reason, I'm seeing quicker and better results than I did when I was doing Slow Burn.........I love Slow Burn, but maybe it's just not for me.

I'm seeing muscle definition and am very encouraged. I am power-walking too, so my strength is good. I didn't do anything but eat and have fun when we were away, so now the party's over!

K......that's it for now, and I'll see you all a bit later.

Now that vacations are over for a time, I've been able to sustain my JUDDD rotations.

Of course, I wish I could go right back into my maintenance mode but the old saying applies.....you play; you pay! lol

I will say it didn't take very long before I was feeling that high energy level again, and for that, I'm grateful.

I'm hoping that I'll get these extra lbs. off in a reasonably short time so that I can resume maintenance.

I need to get sexy by Labor Day so I'll be going back to low carb weight loss mode. I think JUDDD is too lenient for me for losing so I gotta go more strict.
I'm glad you are having high energy. That must be great.

Love the way you put it, Metqa! Yep, getting sexy is definitely a good enough reason for me!

JUDDD can lead to a bit of binging, to be sure. I've been taking the 150 mg of pterstilbene, and I'm finding it to be a very good addition to my supplements.

Hunger is controlled with the ptero but today I did have to take an extra one because we were at my son's babysitting, and I always feel the need to raid their pantry for some goodies......that didn't happen today. No willpower needed, and that's a thumbs up for me!

Also have been on diacomaetus earth for a few months now.

I'm starting to get a second wind, so I'm getting off the puter before I don't!

Gracie--so good to see you once again online. How are you taking the DE? I have some and never have truly taken to it. I have been on and off hcg so much that I have screwed up royally!!! I am trying to lose weight before we go to Japan in 3 weeks. But that is probably a no go. I am thinking since I am not doing anything, I should do JUDDD at least. And then throw in a potato hack every once in a while. I am very big and don't want to show up to my in-laws house this way. I don't like myself right now and project that on others. I don't want to be a Debbie downer when on vacation. So I will do what I can til we leave.

Dawn,

Sorry to read that you're not in a good place with your weight!

I've been taking DE every night with a glass of lemon water when I have to take my Bone Health, EFAs, and my anti-seizure med.

Not sure if it's the correct way, but this fits me well.

Sorry You are down Dawn.
I went down 2 Kilos on a Fat Fast one week. It took two weeks to gain it back, so maybe you could do a fat fast and then JUDDD till you leave?

I had put some DE in the bottom of one of my filter pitchers. it swirls around and gets cloudy when I add water then it settles out and has no taste. I heard that you still get some of the silica by drinking the water that steeped it.

metqa--you must have been following my posts LOL. That is what I am thinking of doing. I love the fat fast and lord knows I don't NEED to eat. I have to get to feeling lighter soon. I have to work tomorrow so I am thinking tomorrow I will have a light day, albeit it fat fasting. But not eating til I get home, I can eat light. At least that means no eating for half the day LOL.

And I never understood how you can still get some of the DE from the Brita. I have the Brita water filter pitcher and wonder how you get the DE if the water is filtering it out. I guess you add it to the bottom where the water settles, and not where it filters. I will have to check that out since I have the DE and am not taking it. I need to start doing that.

I just got a bunch of health books from a second hand reseller here that just opened in town. I am reading or I should say skimming through them and I have the Mood Cure. In it is is describing me to a "T" for a condition I had never heard of. It is called "Pyroluria". I have never heard of it, have you guys? I have most of the symptoms. Definitely more than the 15 you need to have. so something else to look into. I thought my hormone therapy would be all that and fix me. Seems to not be helping. Still tired and "not in the mood" all the time. 2 of my biggest complaints. Well, of course they are in the mix with "pyroluria". I think I just need to stop searching and accept my lot in life. Seems to be much easier, and much less costly.

Well, my stress level has been drastically reduced!

My daughter who has Hashi's, PCOS and related problems is now in recovery after a 3 hour procedure to remove her uterus, one ovary and a hernia that is termed '5 month'.

This has been an ongoing dilemma for her with choosing the right surgeons and getting over the great fear she had because she has never been a patient in the hospital in all her 51 years until now.

She was scheduled for 7:30 this morning, but there was, of course a delay and she didn't enter the OR until about 10:30........it's all good now, cause it's over and all went well.

Except for the OR, her hubby was with her the entire time, stayed overnight and will be there again tonight.

Bottom line, she is awake with the aid of a morphine drip and I feel emotionally drained but very very relieved and happy.

Thank you, Lord!!!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the DE is in the resevior at the bottom after the water filters through the carbon. just like you said above. The idea is the clean water filters down and the DE silicon comes out in the water and you drink the water for a slow but steady supply. Don't know if it's true, but it's easy.

I hope you feel good on the fat fasting. It depends on my mood but when I'm challenged it's really easy for me to stick to it cause I eat clouds and they are super crazy all fat snack.

I've never heard of Pyroluria. I know i've got some mood problems, but I just gave up and figured I'm still alive after all this time so I'm probably doing something right even though most days I feel like I'm totally screwing up everything. I think only heavy drugs could "fix" me, LOL but since I refuse to take stuff cause I'm afraid of side effects of psychiatric medicine, I just pretend that I'm normal and keep on going, alternatively loathing and loving myself at oddly timed intervals.

Happy Monday!

Sazzie, I use the DE for tooth powder occasionally, but I only drank it twice. I'm too forgetful to do it everynight, that's why the water pitcher seems so effective for me.

ETA: Wow, Healing thoughts for your Daughter!!!

metqa--the pyroluria is a deficiency in some vitamins. No drugs necessary!! That is the good thing about this disorder. I will do the DE with my filter tomorrow.

sazzie--what a day you have had I am sure. Is your DD the one in Maryland? I hope her recovery is a quick one! And I am sure she will feel so much better real soon.

Metqa, the only reason I remember to take the DE at night is that I must take my a/seizure med and my other supps, otherwise I'd probably forget too.

Don't we all have some mood problems? When I don't eat right, those bad moods rear their ugly heads.

Don't blame you one bit for avoiding any meds. The side effects of so many drugs out there is staggering.
Lamictal is the only med I take, but I must take it, and thankfully, it does its job!

Dawn, wow, pyroluria is something I've never heard of before either.
Looks like it can be controlled with supplements such as zinc and B6, and that's a good thing.

Hope you resolve this soon.

No, it's not my daughter in Md., but the one in Tampa.......the one who has PCOS, Hashi's and who I tried to get on HHCG a number of times. She finally did do HHCG, lost 30 lbs with no problem at all, and had to stop protocol because of something that came up in her life......forget what it was now.

sazzie--what a day you have had I am sure. Is your DD the one in Maryland? I hope her recovery is a quick one! And I am sure she will feel so much better real soon.
Well, That's good to know. I found so many vitamin/mineral that make me feel better, I'm a fan of modern science and medicine, but man, some of those mental health medicines scare the heck out of me. I'd have to be about to jump off a bridge before taking any of them, from what I've heard of side effects they can be worse. I'm glad I can usually fix what ails me with vitamins and minerals and food.

I'm glad she was able to get some loss out of HCg.

Supplements and food are my best medicines these days. I find things like "cherries are good for you" then I look up what in cherries is good and it's anthocyans and I'm like" Yeah, there are tonnes of that stuff in blueberries and blackberries which are not sweet or expensive like cherries. Hooray it's blueberry and blackberry season on the farm here, BF and I picked two buckets of blackberries and my friend and I went for blueberries last week! Gonna Add Turmeric and ginger for muscle pain as I try to get some muscle building in, and magnesium and B vitamins for mood and generally feel good. Isn't it great we know this stuff!

I think I should maybe look into some zinc and B6 myself after looking at some of the symptoms. I think it's not "me" but some of them are, so it can't hurt!
