Hello all! I seem to NOT be able to get back in the groove at all! Did GREAT on Friday, then blew it big time on my DD yesterday! I think I need an intervention! Email buddy? Someone to talk me off the ledge when I am there....almost daily! I can't get my head in the game. I am a MESS! I get horribly disappointed in myself, AFTER I eat! I seem to have gone back to old old patterns of myself. Need to snap out of it!

Hey Monica! You always gave me a big pep boost when I was feeling challenged--sounds like you need a shot of your own pep (or a shot of whiskey...)

I'm just restarting the "honeymoon phase" coming back to JUDDD, but I know how helpful those pep talks from everyone were when I needed them. You are such an inspiration, and I know you've been in a funk before, so time to just take a deep breath and say "Ok, yesterday is gone....can't do anything about--time to move forward" Push on, girl.....I know you can get through this!!

Monica, it's so hard to get back into the groove after an extended time off. Don't get mad at yourself! (says the woman who was mad at herself for a full week after the holidays, struggling to stay back on plan).

You can do this! No doubt about it. Not even a little bit. Grit your teeth and hang in there like you've done before. YOU ARE WORTH IT!

How about trying what your son did, 1000K Down Days, 2-3000K Up Days? Just to get your mind back into the rotation pattern. Then gradually creep those Down Days downward.

Hang in there. You will get through this rough patch, and get back in the groove. One bad Down Day is just one bad Down Day.

Monica-don't be too hard on yourself! You just came back from vacation I always find it tough to get back into the game when I've been off it for awhile. You can do this! Maybe try planning your DD's out and just sticking to that? Does that make sense? I don't think it's coming out the way I want it to! lol!

OH I love this site! The suggestions and love from everyone is amazing! Thank you to all of you! I will try each suggetion. I do need to be less hard on myself. Doesn't help to bash yourself and I know that!

We are all in this together with the help of this site! I will dust off and move on. Today is a DD and the plan is to have between 490 - 560c and I will not fret if I need to add something in to that. One day at a time! That is the plan for now!

THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!

My dizzy spells / headache have come back. I have an appointment on Friday at 9:45 a.m. with the DR. I am thinking there may be an underlying infection somewhere in the ears/balance area!

Dizzy is truly annoying! Nothing solves the issue thus far either! Thanks girl

Hi Monica!

Hope you get everything resolved at your appointment. Inner ear stuff is no fun--I had an officer that kept having trouble with his equilibrium and could barely take the headaches. Turned out to be Ménière's disease. You just take care of yourself and I'll be hoping your doc can get a handle on what's going on and take care of it.

Hi there,

I am fairly new to this way of eating, but would love to join your challenge as a buddy!

Today is my DD as well.

I have done the VLC, after losing 60lbs I hit an emotional snag and started eating. Back to my old ways. I have tried the VLC again but for some reason my body is changing and its not liking it anymore.

This is my first week trying the JUDD and lost a few lbs

Monica-hope you are feeling better soon! Let us know what the Dr says! Sounds like you've got your day all planned I had the orange julius for breakfast, leftover salmon patties for lunch, and tilapia for supper. Also had some stuffing (which I shouldn't have had...but it was good!) Will probably have a mug of cocoa later too.

Chocgirl - yes, join indeed! Welcome to JUDDD! Yesterday was an Up day for me, today is my DD! We can do it.

Jenn sounds awesome!

Saxy, I am guessing it is some sort of inner infection. Not sure they will find anything though. It comes and goes, it is not constant!
