Hi Carly--

Thanks for getting back to me about the saggy skin altho I'm kinda shocked you have it anywhere except for on your arms (and that was only because you alluded to it in an earlier post)...you cannot tell from looking at your "after" pics at all, which is why I asked...


And honey, let me just tell ya...you're a rare beauty (both inside and out) anyway so who gives a rip about a little extra skin...

That is very sweet and I suspect you are right about giving a "rip" about the excess skin

Thanks ladies!!! I'm excited.

__________________________________________________ ___
I thought I'd re-post this here since it seems like a fitting place:
On February 21st 2012 I hit an all time low with my weight. I was 5'2" and 199lbs. I was ashamed of my appearance, was becoming withdrawn and my health was horrendous. My diabetes was totally out of control. I had been thin all my life, but when I turned 21 I developed sleepwalk eating. I went from 92 pounds to 230 pounds in 15 months. I lost the weight the first time with Atkins. I was militant. I went from 230 to 112 in a year. I remained on induction for 4 years. I kept no food in my home and that nipped the sleepwalk eating in the bud.

When I met DW she thought I was too skinny She kept trying to get me to eat carbs. I stayed low carb for a while, but once we moved in together and her home had food at night I stopped low carbing and the sleepwalk eating was off to the races. I was back to 200lbs before I knew it.

So on Feb 21, 2012 I started a low carb/ low calorie plan. No breakfast. Celery sticks for lunch and for dinner 3 oz of tilapia and 2 cups of lettuce. I did that for 5 weeks and during that time I joined LCFs. I was exploring the site and stumbled upon JUDDD.

I said I can do that!!!! I had been eating about 500 calories a day for the last 5 weeks, but it was miserable. I wasn't sure it would work, but Dawn, Pat, Nancy and Cindy (and others) made me feel so comfortable and welcome that I just jumped in.

I started JUDDD on 3/28/12 at 189lb. In early February 2013 I called goal at 126 pounds. I transitioned to 4:3 and then 5:2. These days I hover around 122lb. The last 2 weeks I've been doing a 2 hour eating window, which I'm enjoying, but I'm starting to crave a DD.

I was very strict with EOD rotations and super low DDs during WLM. My maintenance has been pretty easy and enjoyable. I have not required medication for Diabetes since 2012 and am no longer diabetic- period

The best part... my JUDDD buds and my restored self-confidence!!!!

Beautiful story, and I love hearing it again. You started here about 5 months before I did, and you were already one of the JUDDD role models I followed as you completed your weight loss and maintained so gracefully.

In 24 hours I will be getting ready to walk into my interview for the Deputy Director position.
I feel ready for the interview and based on the outcome I will have decisions to make.

Thanks Ladies!!!!

I have to give a training at 9:30am so that will be a good distraction I suspect.

I'll update you all tonight.

Hi everyone!

Interview update: I think it went very well. The interview lasted for an hour and she told me that she was very pleased that I applied. She said she was going to speak to me ahead of time, but didn't want to put me in an awkward position. I'm the only internal candidate. She is interviewing 9 people from the outside. She told me the top 3 candidates will be brought back for a panel interview. One of the people on the panel in my current boss, so that is a real plus for me. The other person she named really likes me, so I feel good about that. I'm assuming that I'm one of the 3 top candidates since why tell me all that if I weren't. She hopes to offer the position in early August.

We shall see...

I finished my 3 week experiment with fasting every night till dinner. I really enjoyed it and I think it's another tool in my arsenal. On that note... I'm so excited for my DD tomorrow

My high bounce went from 122-123 to 124-125. Not bad since I ate dinner and/or bedtime snack every night for 3 weeks, but I'd prefer to be around 122 and I'm starting to feel a dip in my energy so I'm back to 5:2 this week and then we will see.

Just shaking things up every now and then is probably not a bad idea. I really do believe our bodies get accustomed to the same thing and sometimes a shakeup is in order. But it's great to know that 5:2, or JUDDD, or whatever is always there.

Are you wearing one of your new outfits today?
