Zip's JUDDD journey~

I have done LC off and on since 2002. I lost 45 pounds and was at a nice goal weight. It was on my higher end for normal weight range, but as a bigger gal, it was perfect. Over the years I have put on about 15 pounds....not is the time to get back there!

Started today. JUDDD April 18th, 2012. I do not weigh myself, but DH looked at the scale for me and will track it. I will weigh in, like this, once a week. I will not ask him what the number is or how much I have lost. See how it goes and I will go by clothes. If I reach goal (or below) I may look at the journal he is going to make for us. WE will have to see. My goal would be 165 with an ULTIMATE DREAM goal of 158!

Here I go!

04/18/12 - DD #1

B - Pure Protein shake 120 c and 23 grams protein
L - Pure Protein shake 120 c and 23 grams protein
D - shrimp/cabbage and something to mix it together 350c

590 calories (if needed I have chicken stock here too)

UP DAY for me! My down day went really well. I was actually really surprised. I drank a TON of water and it was very manageable.

UP DAY:

B - 2 eggs, OMM, cheese 476
S - granola bar/cottage cheese 280
L - lettuce salad with grilled chicken, cheese, dried Raspberries, raspberry vinigrette 533
D - pizza casserole and cauliflower roasted 455

That gets me to 1744 , I need more. Will probably sprinkle cheese on the cauli and maybe add some slivered almonds to my salad at lunch. Try to get to 2100

D - deli ham, laughing cow cheese and some peanuts at the ball fields tonight

TONS and TONS of water and coke zero


So far so good!

Survived the weekend on JUDDD. Counted all calories and made it through. Yesterday was a DD and my calories were a bit high. I stopped at 725 calories and typically I shoot for 650! My tummy simply would not stop growling.

Today I have had 430 calories for breakfast. Lunch will be a salad and Dinner out at Longhorn for Dh's birthday! I was so happy to eat this morning. It felt really good. I hope the down days get easier! Yesterday was a total struggle!

It's a DD for me, it's my 4th DD. I am approaching this one differently. My last DD was a horrible hungry mess! Going to approach this one differently. Prior I starved all day so I could eat something at night. This time I am spacing out my consumption in hopes that I am not starving and irritable all day!

B - pure protein shake (120)
S - veggie beef broth soup (125)
L - tuna with laughing cow cheese (135)
D - lettuce, deli ham, mushrooms, cheese, vinaigrette (253)

Total 633 for the day!

I'm going to see how things go with that plan. IF needed I can add another shake in there for a total of 750 calories for the day. Sunday was a disaster. I was irritable and not happy all day long and HUNGRY. I can't live like that so we will see how this goes.

Last week went well. Thursday's dd was a bit high and the UD was too but I got right back on Track come Saturday.

Today is a dd and plans for it have it going right on target!

DH as of 04/25 had lost 7 pounds his first week on JUDDD. He told me I did well too, I don't watch the numbers on the scale, he is logging it all for me!

May 1st, I took my measurements today. Weighed in too, have no idea what it said as DH logged it for me. Yesterday's dd was good, probably a bit higher at 750c than it should have been. When at the ball fields, it is tough!

Today is an UD!!!

Struggling a bit today in my DD. I think in part due to the fact I didn't start the day with my protein loaded shake. DH forgot to bring them in, so I ate my "snack" of ham/cheese at 7:30. That is typically what I eat at 11:00 a.m. Seem to be wanting to eat more than is typical of a DD. I'll Have another big cup of coke zero! That should help!

It was indeed a rough DD. I ended up with 705c. I will call that a win! Moving on. Friday I will try to get it back to 500c!

Had another granola bar for mid morning snack today. I had a full 3/4 cup cottage cheese with it and it STILL messed up my bloodsugar. LEARN LEARN LEARN from this. It simply doesn't work for me to have a granola bar in the a.m. Reactive hypoglycemia just can't tolerate it! MAD AT MYSELF!

S - deli ham and string cheese 130c
L - tuna with hummus 130c
D - talapia and steamed mushrooms and broccoli 205c

total is 585 Trying harder to get my DD calories closer to 500! It's a struggle for me as I get the shakes, irritable and headachy. I will report back with how this goes!

1 gallon of water and coke zero

Tomorrow marks the 3rd week, 21 days on JUDDD. My first 2 weigh ins have been losses, hoping that continues. I have no idea how much, as I don't ask. I do ask if it is a loss!

Hi Zipp! I'm following your progress with interest and hoping the best for you. Are you exercising during this time? I flirted with the idea of JUDDD but I don't think I'd have the energy for P90X (I can barely hang on with 2200 calories).

RDB, Yes I am exercising. I am still doing my 5 miles a day, on average 25-28 miles a week. I haven't added weight training back in, but plan to in a couple weeks! Jillian Michels DVD is where I plan to start! Thanks for checking in!! I will try to make it to the main lobby to check in re: exercise! I know you can add in calories for extreme exercising...although with just walking, I haven't had to do that!

Meg - thanks! So far I am loving JUDDD!

Yesterday's DD was a huge success. I even resisted peanuts at the ball fields. Total calories 550. GREAT for me!

Up day now!!!!!!!! I haven't really planned well for this one. I am guessing tonight I will have to add a snack or 2. Busy time of year at our house!

Hey Zipp, love the journal!!

On up days are you LC'ing?? I sort of go back and forth, as the only thing that matters in calories. But, I have a terrible sugar addicition, and I'm afraid I could be in trouble.

Anyway, I'm happy for you and your dh, good job.

Anna - I follow a lower carb plan! It isn't VLC, but it is pretty lc. Sugar and I don't do well, so I limit that as much as possible. DD's I eat lc for sure. I don't want my blood sugar going way too low. That would screw up a DD completely!

This weekend went well. Saturday was my best down day yet. I was very happy about that. Weekend dd's are always tough! I prefer the MWF ud routine, so this week is a bummer. OH WELL, next week, MWF. Look forward to that. Yesterday's calories were a bit over what I was supposed to have, but I will call that a WIN!

Down day today! So far, so good! If I get hungry, I will just remind myself what all I ate yesterday!

So happy/proud for you Zipp. Looks like your doing well with JUDD.

I need to get back to lower carb on up days at least. The sugar monster is evil for me too...........
