Danielle, I am so glad to see you have success with JUDDD. It just triggered me into binge eating The carb level was too high for me. I just got carried away with thinking things like, "Oh an UD. I can eat a box of dunuts today."

Thanks Janet! I worried about that when I decided to start the plan. I'm thankful that it hasn't done that for me, which is unbelievable. I think my thinking is way way different and I feel better equipped to handle things. I'm suprising myself! I did Atkins to the letter for 6 months and could not get the weight to budge, go figure!

Thanks Monica! I dunno about inspiring, mostly I'm rambling and I think I'm the only one that listens to myself talk.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UD today.

Ate later than usual last night..after 9pm. DH and I got busy with moving some furniture when he got home and when I looked up it was 9! Contemplated just not eating at all for the day (DD anyways) but knew that I'd never be able to sleep if my tummy started rumbling in the middle of the night I just had a small salad with some chopped meat from the deli.

Not sure if the late night meal affected my weigh in this morning

Still on the fence about keeping this scale. I think I may go look at a couple this weekend and see if I see anything that changes my mind. I hate that I don't love my scale!

Seeing my youngest sis on Sat. I haven't seen her in 2 years since all the high drama of new years eve of '10....none of it involved her, but her living in another state has kept us apart now that we no longer travel to CA for new years week anymore.. Will be good to see her!

Dinner & a movie night! We're seeing Zero Dark Thirty, looks good. Soon I'll be counting down the days until the new Fast 6 comes out..love me some Vin!

Food so far:

Brekkie:
2 cups of coffee/creamer/truvia
1/2 english muffin w/ smidge of butter
3 pieces of bacon
orange

Lunch will prolly be some soup or maybe a salad, not sure..
Dinner will be high cal I think I wanna go to Chipotle it's been ages.. (what, like a couple weeks really )

Hey going to Chipotle is a special outing and a treat for following along JUDDD-lines. That's the whole purpose anyway, to lose weight and NOT be deprived. Have a yummy dinner!!

Blonde~ who me, deprived?! Never!

I get into trouble there with the guac and the chips Altho, DH and I ALWAYS share them so I guess that's a plus. Also, he eats faster than I do so most of it disappears before I can get my mitts on it
And I'm foregoing my usual Corona with it too since we're movies bound afterwards.. might do some popcorn if I'm inspired to do so..

Thanks everyone! I started to feel better after a couple hours of laying down.. totally sick to my stomach radomly is not my idea of a fun afternoon.

I am STILL coughing. SO annoying!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure everyone is sick to death about hearing of my scale issues..I know I am!!!! However, now I am really just gone over the edge...

I got some handweights yesterday to begin implementing some weight training at home. Well, I decided to plop the small ones on the new scale to see if the new scale weighed them correctly.... was .5 lower than it shoulda been. Kinda annoying, but ok...tolerable to add .5 to my weight.... of course I was experimenting with this at 2am after we got back from the movies .. This morning I get up all ready to do my weigh in...get on that stupid idiotic thing 12x.. TWELVE....and did not get even 2 weights the same! I got varying weights from 234 - 237 I decide to break out the old one.. I got 5 consecutive weights of 233.... I then try putting the same weights on it..of course they're too light for this old scale alone..so I get on it holding the weights and I got 5 consecutive weights of 239. It gave me EXACTLY 6lbs (3lb weights) more each time.

Soooo, all this said? On Jan 1 I woke up, weighed in at 228.5. Went and got the new scale and all the drama and confusion ensued...... by today's weigh in on that same old scale I'm up 4.5 lbs which is *quite* possible since TOM is lurking and due any time now... not to mention the bloat that is slowly taking over my body. meh.. The NEW scale has been nothing but frustrating, confusing, and downright inaccurate in my opinion.. I was all set to accept a gain of some poundage for the sake of an accurate scale but the things that keep happening with it tells me that it's not worth all the aggravation of keeping it. Even if it is pretty! It's goin back this week....
I'm done with the insanity

So, after all that..... today I weigh 233.0 Bam!

Zero Dark Thirty. Good flick. Packed theater for a 10:40pm showing..the 2 showings prior sold out. While it's only showing in select theaters this week, next week it's out everywhere....come early cause it's gonna be crowded. I love Jessica Chastain.

Chipotle was And I only had 8 chips with a lil guac. I had no beer, and 1 handful of popcorn and 2 hershey kisses. Go me! I was well within my calories. Today I need to chug the water tho cause the bloat is not fun times.

Yanno, I just got so full there was no way I was gonna get beer down We had finished alot earlier than we planned and still had a couple hours before the movie we were gonna head over to our fave lil watering hole and have a couple beers...nope, the idea just didn't appeal.. we went to the mall and walked instead.
----------------

Weird afternoon.... emotions kind of everywhere. Saw my little sis this afternoon for lunch, hadn't seen her in over 2 years.. it was nice to visit even though it wasn't long enough. I hate that things are kind of uncomfortable, certain topics off limits, etc. Then I realized that my son is heading back to school tomorrow after being home for over 2 weeks.. ugh, now i gotta process all that all over again, missing him, etc. May can't come soon enough!

Oh Sweetie

Big hugs to you! My baby moved away with my grandchildren for 8 freaking years. I was so happy when they came home I for got to be mad. I feel your pain.

Take that stupid scale back and MAKE the salesperson get on it. Hmph. See how they like it.

Loves and hugs girly.

Oy the scale! I thought I had a really good one until yesterday when it weighed me all over the place - 4 pounds difference! They can put a man on the moon but they can't make an accurate scale. GAH!

My DH and I had Chipotle yesterday, too! Slurp!

Wow a lot of drama with the scale but I would have down the same thing. W want it to be accurate when we weigh....otherwise we will just be crazy. .
Sorry to hear about the tummy troubles. I'm glad you were able to have a good day with your sis. And a big hug about your son leaving. That must be terrible. I can't even imagine.

So I was thinking...my scale has put me at 217.8 for three solid weeks. Could it be stuck? When I step on it I'm so grateful for no gain that I'm afraid to step on it again.

Laura~ the scale thing just sends me over the edge It's a necessary evil tho *sigh*

Mmmmmmmmmm Chipotle! Heaven in a bowl I tell ya!

Melanie~ I feel like a total loon for being so obsessed about that stupid thing but sheesh, I just wanna know the truth, right?

Blonde~ Gee, ya think somethings goin on with your scale too? LOL Is yours old, need new batteries? Mine is sooo old and it doesn't take batters at all It's the weirdest thing, it just keeps going and going and going.. I would maybe contemplate a new one, maybe?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blew DD. Munched my way to about 1200 calories for the day.. finished off the day with hershey kisses Going to stick with my calories for UD today and just keep rolling.

Scale was down .5 so hopefully something agreed with me.

Kiddo starts back to work & school tomorrow.. the chaos is about to ensue.. might be a good thing to keep me busy.

My back and neck is soooooo sore. AF is lurking and making me absolutely miserable Ibuprophen will have to be my friend or I won't be moving.

Anywho, that's me today. Have a great day everyone!

YOU are recommending a new scale??

Actually mine does take batteries and may need a new one...it's a under five years old. Maybe six...

Hope you feel better. AF has left the building over three years ago...and I don't miss her one bit. Although I was so cranky yesterday, it sure felt like PMS. You know, that feeling that you hate everyone and everything?

Only recco one if ya think you need one, .....Otherwise stay far far away! Seriously, I'm still so annoyed with the whole blasted thing, and frankly, in awe that my old scale doesn't take batteries at all..

DS just left. Didn't even make it 60 seconds Sending the girls to the mall for awhile I just need some time alone to get my bearings. He's going through some stuff right now and I am unfortunately a worrier.. *sigh* was hard to let him go feeling this way..
I guess I'll lay low and entertain myself with a movie and a cup of hot cocoa..

One cool thing did happen this weekend, ..we met a couple in Vegas the first night of Social D who happen to be from here...we just connected on FB and texts.. so fun!! They're alittle younger than we are (8'ish yrs to me, 4'ish for dh since he's 4yrs younger than me! ) but they're so much fun and we have a ton in common. Going to meet for dinner one night next week and talk.. which, will be nice to be sober and have a conversation

.....off to relax and try and be calm....

Awww, yea it's always the worst when someone leaves and you know they are not in their best head space. hopefully whatever he is going thru is over soon. I was in a rut when I first went off to college. That first semester was the worst.

Glad you met some friends while in vegas... What a fun trip!

have a great day D!

Morning ladies!

Still not feeling great. I am so dizzy Thankfully I don't feel *as* tired but still feeling rather lethargic.. UGH!
I swear if it's not one thing, it's another!!

Went over my DD calories yesterday by about 200.. all in all not too too bad..TOM is wreaking havoc with everything this month I am just starved to the point of nausea so I've been eating a little more Hoping once TOM is out of the house the scale will sort itself out.. right now I'm down .5 after all the bouncy bouncy..

Errands and housework today. Meh!
