Gracie's Getting Healthy Journal#3

Wow! I can't believe this is my 3rd journal because the other 2 got too large! I've been through low-carb, hhcg, and now JUDDD. At least I have maintained much of my loss from hcg. I seem to be bouncing in between 3-4 lbs, from 186-190. When I started this journey YEARS ago, even before I had my daughter Erin who is now 3 years old, I weighed way into the 200's. When I delivered Erin my weight was over 250 lbs. because I remember when I left the hospital I was 242 lbs. - So, I'm down 55 lbs. since then I'm not sure where my final goal is - maybe 159 lbs. I'm going to relax and just let it happen. JUDDD is working awesome for maintenance but not for weight loss. My UDs are a struggle and I go over my calories. The DDs are much easier.

Anyway, welcome to Journal #3 and hopefully my race to the finish line!!!

Yeah, I'm JUDDDing, if that's what we want to call it I try to get 3 good DDs in per week. The weekends are a total bust usually. One thing that did work was I ate a nice early dinner on a Saturday and was done eating at 4 pm. I fasted until 4 pm Sunday. It wasn't hard because I ate Saturday and then I was able to eat Sunday after 4 pm. I'm not sure what that diet is called But it did cause a nice drop on the scale.

You got that right LoLo!!!! Just proves how weight loss and maintenance is unfortunately a life long struggle. Even maintaining a weight sucks!!! On the bright side, we never give up

LMAO!!!! Honestly, the ONLY plan I lose weight on is hcg. All the others I either suck at or just maintain. I'm thinking of a short hcg round to get off maybe another 10 lbs. - after my bday of course

I just printed out a cool workout with dumbbells. It covers all the muscle groups and looks pretty good. I'm going to attempt this 3X per week. I have 3 lb, 5 lb, and 10 lb dumbbellls. I'll start with the 5's or 10's and see how I feel. I love lifting and haven't done it in a LONG time! I need to do SOMETHING to feel healthier

Morning Gracie! Well you and Pati doing a round of HHCG, just makes me want to do it again.. I don't think I can though, but I will certainly watch you girls and see how you do!

I think I could eat the Omaha plan foods, just not down that far in cals.. but how knows?... I want Hawaii bad enough...... if I can lose my appetite, ya just never know...

Have a great day, lifting weights sounds wonderful, and I am going to start that this weekend.. These old bones need support...

Feel free to join us!!! I didn't even do the Omaha plan - I kind of made up my own I had to make it doable and not something I hated. It wasn't bad at all, I swear! And if you find that it sucks, just quit! I've been reading these boards about hcg for years and there are those strict protocol drill sergeants who are on their upteenth round but will not vary from protocol. Makes no sense to me If you can be more comfortable and have peace of mind - why not at least try going to the dark side? I was one of them once and thought if I veered from protocol at all that I wouldn't stabilize and blow up like a puffer fish Well, truthfully if you don't follow any plan afterwards, we all gain it back - the roguers and the protocolers.

Good morning peeps! Well, my scale battery is officially dead I need to run out today and grab one. It's those little round lithium suckers - hope they're not a lot of $$$. So I have no idea what I weigh this morning. I did my dumbbell workout I warmed up (danced) for about 5-10 minutes and then started the workout. I used two 10 lb. dumbbells - is that too much? I was sore last night and this morning. I put some ICY HOT on and took some Advil. I also did some ab exercises after lifting. The workout last about an hour. I loved it I like when I can work at my own pace and not follow a video. OTOH, I do want to incorporate Callanetics again because of the nice long lines it give my muscles.

Today I'm going to lunch to that cool Mediterranean place So, tomorrow will be a DD and then Friday starts my getaway weekend Still no idea where I'm going DS is home from school today - he was complaining his throat/chest were hurting and he felt lightheaded Here we go again!

It went good - I'm pretty sore today though. I figure I'll try to do it 3X a week with at least a day's rest in between. I love to lift - makes me feel strong! Hoping to put some muscle where the arm flab is

I used to lift at a gym and I really enjoyed the machines. I also liked lifting the heavy weights. Yesterday I used two 10 lb. dumbbells and I am seriously sore as heck today. I did each exercise 12 times and repeated this 3X. That's what the program recommended that I printed out. I hope to see some results in my arms in the next couple weeks
