Yesterday's DD was just about perfect. I wasn't STARVED all day long. I kept it under 600c and I survived! Love DD's like that! Today is lunch day for my birthday here at work. That will be fun AND we are going to a KState Alumni BBQ tonight with us and the kids. It should be a fun day! Thank GOD for UP DAYS!

Hi,
I think technically I'm in maintenance but I've been keeping around 30 net carbs anyway. My weight's been fairly stable +/- 5 lbs. Right now we're doing Insanity which is really appropriately named. It's beating the snot out of me.

Yesterday was a good day. Up day and calories were on the higher side. Thus far, my down day....I'm HUNGRY! Hate when they start out this way. I will drink more water and go from there!

I don't have strawberries (dang things look horrible at the store this week). I really prefer my cottage cheese with strawberries for my DD mid morning breakfast. I might try another store today to see if they have them. Tomorrow is an up day, but I have softball all day with my daughter. We have to leave the house at 7:00 as her games are an hour away. I don't like to eat that early on either an UD or DD, so if I find strawberries, I will be packing them with cottage cheese for breakfast tomorrow. Then I will have various snacks to make it through the day. She has to be at the fields by 8:00 and the last game starts at 4:30 ---so we won't be leaving there till at least 6:00! That's a long day of softball! Good thing one of my BFF's is a MOM on the team! Chat time for her and I

Correct. It's by the same folks who make P90X, which is also fantastic.

Hey girl, I'm back! Had a blast. Back to low carb today, 3 days of boating and beer, and the last night a mexican restaurant feast! LOL
Happy belated!
Will try to get the pics uploaded tonight.

Izzy, I can't wait to see the PICS!

RD - I bet it is a total body workout for sure. Is your Wife following along with this one?

Sorry I have been MIA. Life has been crazy, work too! Monday I committed to strictly charting every calorie and trying to keep UP Days under control and Down Days anything under 700c, as I can. Today my bloodsugar crashed before lunch, so I had to eat my Protein granola bar. I typically don't eat those on DD's. So I will be under 700, barely!

BACK TO FOCUSING NOW!!!!!!!! Our cruise is almost 100 days away. 12 pounds need to be gone by then. Completely DOABLE!!!!!!

How was the movie The Words????
Yes, there was a couple of me, one with the ballcap on the boat with my cousin and me and her dancing the last pic. Do you have facebook? I have lots there. Ill pm my facebook page.
I try to keep somewhat anonymous here.
I liked the movie, definitely a chick flick. Thought Dennis Quaid and Olivia Wild were miscast, but the other actors were superb! Especially Jeremy irons and the young actor that portrayed him in youth.

Thanks for the movie info. I think I will wait till it comes out on DVD!

I owned up to the scale this morning. I am 3.2 over my signature weight. 173.4 hoping to see 3 gone by next week. I rededicated myself this week. Counting every calorie. Staying focused and working better to keep DD's truly DOWN!

Yes, she sure is. It's much more fun doing it together - although we're both wiped out at the end. Here's to -12 lbs/100 days.

Here's a great trick. Write it down 3 times a day. And focus on it as you're writing. "I am 158lbs on January 1, 2013." (or whatever weight/date are approriate). Use the present tense and use hard numbers (ie, not "around 158 lbs" or "by Jan 1"). It's goal setting and subliminal messaging at it's most useful.

Great IDEA RD! The power of positive thinking/reinforcement! I will do that and start it TODAY! Thanks for the tip!

Yesterday's up day went well. I actually finished in just below my calorie level! YEAH! today's DD is going good so far. I just had some string cheese. I found some that is only 50c a stick. LOVE THAT and it's yummy! I will have my cottage cheese/strawberries in a couple hours. Hopefully my sugar doesn't crash today. It did on Tuesday and I am not sure why. Must have been what I ate on Monday, because Tuesday's food was right in line with what I always eat!

Yes, you can!!!
I have to be at the hospital at 5.30 am on Tuesday. Nervous.
Craving chocolate real bad (made low carb flaxmeal brownies today), I'm hoping tom doesn't start before Tuesday, but I think I'm close. Stayed in my robe all day, watching tear jerker movies and got teary eyed! got the starving marvin's but holding strong!

I will be thinking of you on Tuesday girl. I am sure it will go fine! Have a heating pad ready for the cramping that will happen that first day. For me, that was the worst of it!

Good weekend here. Stayed close on calories and had a lot of fun! Relaxing done some this weekend too! LOVE THAT!

Yesterday's DD was not so very down. I think it was closer to 1000c. I will stay right at 1850c today. Sabatoge city! I just was so hungry all day. I haven't had a day like that in a long time. I think it was the wine from Sunday. I think I will give up wine for a month and see if I am better able to keep my DD's and UD's in line. So no drinking for me till 10/18th! Maybe that's what I need to do to get in the 160's!

Yesterday's UD was managed and controled. LOVE THAT! We had the creamy mexican chicken again. It is a favorite of my daughter. Today is a DD, I think I have properly planned for it. Hopefully it goes well

Hi Monica!

I just finished reading your journey from the beginning and I have to say that it's quite inspiring to me! You are getting so close to your goal! Our stats are similar, and you are the "proof in the pudding" for me, to keep me going on JUDDD! Keep up the good work, and keep posting! It's exciting!

Saxy, glad you enjoyed my journey. I have probably had a lot more bumps than most, but for me, it isn't a race! My problem right now is I am comfy at this weight. All clothes fit, some really big, my smaller stuff, perfect! My ultimate goal is size 8. Thanks for stopping by!

I shouldn't be comfy. I have 6 pounds to go till I am "normal BMI" and then another 6 after that to take me more into the 150's! 12 pounds over should not be comfy!!! I will get there, I just know it!

Down 1 pound this week. I am now just 2 pounds over signature weight! Yesterday's DD was awesome. Really easy. Finished up at 650c!

Husband was down to 198.6 this morning. MEN MEN MEN! Makes me so mad. I think in the past week, he has only done 1 Down day and he hits an all time low! GRRRR Then he gets peeved that I gave up alcohol for a month! I have to do something!
