lol...why yes it is a DD.

i'm glad you're feeling better.

i think i'm going to try a rotation of UD-UD-DD-UD-UD-DD....rather than every other day DD.

That sounds interesting. Maybe more of a challenge to you system that way.

I'm still kind of formulating going forward. I did switch to FF today and am planning the same for tomorrow. Definitely keeping the two day effect in mind

Great suggestion Bud! Down 1.1 and that’s without the two day effect. I also had a good workout last night.

Hope your day is grand. Enjoy your UD. Hints of spring on this side of the world.

Good Morning Bud,
What absolutely lovely people Marie and her husband are. I just felt like they were old friends. And Marie is so tiny and drop dead gorgeous. Her pictures totally don't do her justice. I'll get some pictures posted for you later today.

Well things are not going well on the HCG front for me. Don't really know why. Week one was a total bust and I'm heading into HH so stopping pellets today but keeping with the FF. Of course the way I have been doing it it's sort of like a FF/NK hybrid. I'm going to continue to focus on lifting and that may well be why the scale is not complying. I do feel smaller, so we'll just say that's true.

How are you doing?

oh! I'm so happy you got to meet up...sounds like so much fun.

I'm sorry for your struggles. things aren't going perfect here either, but I don't know if its due to prayer or what, but I feel strangely content. would I like to be less on the scale...absolutely! but I also can't do the helpless, out of sorts feeling anymore, just can't. so I think I am nearing acceptance to keep trying, doing Juddd, and if the weight comes off, fantastic, if I maintain, that's ok. it seems I can do life at this weight fairly easily and the more I pray about it, contentment with weight/desire to lose, the more my heart is ok if it takes awhile.

so I say all that I answer to how am I doing? I'm doing ok. I will do dd's as often as I can and if I need to do more than one up day in order to live life, that's ok...I will do a dd the next day.

hubby had to bring his dad to the city for his arthritis treatment today so I came with and we'll have our v-day date while he's getting his infusion. lunch and a movie. going to see 'indentity thief' looks hilarious!

have a great love day with your valentine!

Amen to that! You know I'm about the same weight as when we started, but I'm still smaller. So although I don't fit into my smallest stuff I fit into most of my 4s and 6s. When we started I was in 8s. At my smallest I was a little scrawny. So I actually feel I look better with a little more on me. Yes I still want to get down to about midway and I hope to accomplish that with lifestyle changes and the occasional correction day after an especially great weekend. But I'm going to focus on health and happiness. I was a bit anxious yesterday because I had gained some back and didn't feel like I looked my best. DH called me on my way to tell me how great I looked and how my friend would be surprised I was even on a weight loss site. So what's more important than that?

I had a beautiful bouquet of red roses to greet me this morning and I'm making steak and shrimp for dinner. We sure are blessed, aren't we?

That's awesome about your clothes and dh

Unfortunately I can't say the same, but it is what it is right now. I just feel like God is trying to teach me contentment in all things, and that includes contentment with me, ya know.

Dh is totally affirming which I am thankful for.

I printed it from your facebook. I wish the picture came out better. I'm hoping Marie's camera did a better job.

that's too funny. thanks for thinking of me.

so weighed today....up 2.4 from last week. NOW on the outside that looks BUT i also checked my body fat % and it is DOWN .1% from 2 weeks ago. soooo, this tells me that bump is most likely fluid from end of ovulation. i would think that if that were a true gain my BF% would not be down. so i'm good with it.

how about you? did you have a weekly yesterday?

you on the rode this weekend?

Good job checking the BF%. You are so right about fluid retention. Next week will definitely tell a different tale. It’s really amazing how much that can make a difference in the scale.

Yeah we went on a blossom hunt today. I say “hunt” because the orchards are just starting to bloom and we really had to search for decent ones.

Friday to Friday down .20. Not so bad if you weren't trying to do a [very rogue] round. Don't ask me about Saturday to Saturday

I'm in reassessment mode. Influences:
The last couple [very rogue] failed rounds
Tiny Marie saying "just count calories"
Two years ago compared to today incorporating all kinds of extremes from super high fat to super low fat, not to mention HCG.

I don't know why this is so hard. I really don't have the typical issues associated with the overeating norm, nor am I an addictive personality, or am I? I guess I have to think on that. I'm trying to figure out how I can do anything in moderation and focus on working out, specifically lifting. I know what to eat and what not to eat. I know that over doing it on anything always ends up in failure. I also know that moderation in all things makes everything okay. Is it because I can only do the things I know I should if I can secretly hit the excess button on something technically legal? Why is that?

Don’t mean to make this a downer response, actually just the opposite. I’m just on the on the edge of tapping my Ruby heals together, looking both ways and wondering if it's as clear as I think it is.

not a downer at all. interesting thoughts. a lot to think about. congrats on being down.

FTR, i am not eating lc. for now, it's where i am right now. as long as i don't eat too much sugar, i feel pretty good. one thing i do need to do is reign in my UDs as i haven't been tracking. but considering i'm not doing this, i am seeming to maintain...which is always better than gaining.

have you ever thought of doing juddd?

I'm not sure I could do only 500 calories every other day. I'll have to think about it. When I think of the hcg days they really weren't that bad, especially if you take them one day at a time rather than ongoing. I have thought about doing meat and egg days a couple times a week. Might not be so different.
