So, this bulletproof coffee thing--I've been skimping on the butter to save calories, but this morning I used a full tablespoon each of butter and CO, and a tablespoon of Torani S'mores SF syrup, and WOW...I'm in love!! SDo freakin' creamy and frothy. Packs a big punch with 245 calories, but I think it's SO worth it right now. Besides, it's an up day, and I'm not hungry at all! I might just have another one tonight after dinner.

Sunday weigh-in: 212.4 So that's about 5 pounds in my first 2 weeks. I'll take it.

Started today's DD with my bulletproof coffee.....Gotta rock this day!

I need to remember to take CO each morning -- forgot it today. I will be interested to see if it helps with energy & satiety.

Congrats on your weight loss -- that's fantastic news!

Hope you're having a great day!

Hi Jayce! I'm absolutely loving the CO--I'm thinking a part of the "fullness" I'm getting from it is psychological. It just seems that I'm tricking my body into thinking I'm full....but hey, whatever works!

Just to see how my UD went, I stepped on the scale this morning, and saw 212.0. I know I have an UD today, but I'm afraid to eat! I sooooo want to see 210 this week!

212.0! I sure hope you ARE eating today. Enjoy it, and know that the extra fuel is stoking your metabolism for the next DD.

Well, yesterday's UD was not too good--I went to bed with about 600 calories for the day, and I'm paying for it today. Sooooo hungry! My slim-fast shake from this morning was good...but didn't keep me satisfied long enough. I've got a plan though! Got some grapefruit waiting for me when I get home--and I guess if that isn't enough, I'll have a bulletproof coffee. That should keep me well below 500 today. I have a feeling I'll be heading to bed early to stay away from the kitchen!

You only had 600c on an UD? WHY girl? Up day's make a difference for DD's! DO tell girl! Follow the rotations, the plan! For the record, I never, EVER, have trouble getting IN calories!

I was super busy at work, so I didn't get to eat until I got home, and even then I wasn't that hungry. I doubt that will ever happen again.

Yesterday's DD was ok....I did have a couple eggs that toppled me off the 500 cal scale, but that's ok. Today I'm rocking my UD!

I'd say this whole week was pretty good! I'm learning that I don't HAVE to eat on my DDs if I don't want to, and I'll survive! I had another "no eating" DD yesterday because I was traveling for work and made it through the day with just a protein shake in my belly. Tonight I'm looking forward to fish fry...with a big baked potato with butter and sour cream! I keep peeking at the scale, and it's looking good for Sunday.

Wow Lisa! You are having some stellar DDs. I'm sure hoping for a great reward when you officially weigh!

Sunday weigh-day! 210.6! I'll take it!

Carol, I'm actually looking forward to my DDs, much unlike the first time I tried JUDDD. I think it's because I love the taste of the Slim Fast protein shakes, and they keep me full.

Today's my UD, and I celebrated my weigh-in with some egg salad.

Looking forward to DDs is a great feeling. One that I haven't had in quite awhile, darnit! Keep up the great work!

I don't know what's different about it this time around, but my DD's are easy-peasy! Well, maybe it's because I'm doing liquid DDs for the most part and I really I look forward to my morning shake! I hate to plug certain products, but I'm super happy with the Slim Fast extra protein shake powder--I have vanilla and strawberry, and they both rock!

Today is an UD, and I had eggs and toast before work. Yum. I'm expecting my Netrition order tomorrow--I got some SF meringues to snack on, Torani syrups, and some shirataki noodles. Can't wait!

OH girl, you are ROCKING THIS!

My kids love the slim fast ready made protein shake. They drink them so often I have them on auto order through Amazon! 20 g protein and you just open it and go! It's perfect for them!

Well damn. Today was a DD and I thought I'd have no problem with it since I had to travel out of town for a meeting. I had my shake at 4am before leaving, then ended up eating a nice lunch at the meeting...THEN stopping at Wendy's towards the end of my 5 hour drive and got a cheeseburger and fries. Total fail.

Not sure what to do since tomorrow we're having a special V-Day dinner. I guess I could just keep it as light as possible and move forward with Saturday being my next DD.

I just *knew* things were going too well and I'd screw it up somehow.

I completely agree with Danielle, Lisa. You did not fail! Enjoy your V day w/o restrictions. After all, holidays are meant to be fully enjoyed. DD on Saturday sounds good.

Thanks for the support! You ladies are like a good bra! My weight is definitely showing my hiccup in the plan, but I'm not going to worry about it too much. Will carry on the plan as usual for today's UD, then forge ahead!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
