Sorry to hear that Carly. At least you are well rested after vacation to tackle anything.

Indicted!
It's not the kind of thing you can really feel happy about, but it was the right thing... <shakes head in disbelief, even after all these months>

The next case goes to Grand Jury on 11/13. I have not been called as of yet to testify in that case. One of our psychiatrist and 2 of our clients have been subpoenaed so far for that one. I saw the ADA who is prosecuting that case today while at court. Chatted with her for a bit <shakes head in disbelief again>

Glad the weekend is here for you. It definitely will help you regroup before Monday.

You are such an inspiration as everyone keeps telling you. I know your patients must be so thankful to have someone like you in their lives.

Well, that is good news, considering what he did. But so unfortunate that there are human beings out there doing these things. You did your part, Carly, and I hope you can now relax for awhile about court stuff.

It's almost 1:30am and even though I am exhausted I can't sleep. That is not like me at all. I guess I just need to unwind from this unpleasant week on many accounts- all work related, but it just felt like a daily assault of stress. I'm sure if Ian just fall asleep I'll feel better in the morning... Well it is technically the morning already.

Hey girl, had to come find you after reading you had a journal. Can't promise I'll find this section often (I'm so happy being secluded in our juddd-land!) but am so glad I ventured over this morning. I already knew how gorgeous you look now at goal, but LOVE the new vaca pics and you're continued glow! Despite all the tremendous work stress, I hope you are still able to feel the JOY and PRIDE in accomplishing such huge health goals! You are one of the reasons I made it to goal on Juddd myself and I will never be able to thank you, and our other sweet JBs, enough for giving me the desire to bite the bullet and lose weight again. Love you girl!!!!!!!! XOXO

Thank you Melinda! You guys mean the world to me too. I never imagined I could feel so close to so many great ladies I've never met. I didn't really see it at the time, but someone wrote about it in the daily thread- Barbo I think and that is that I'm living my plan, because despite all this prolonged work stress I have stuck with JUDDD/ 5:2 and kept the losses off.

My wonderful JBs play a big part in that!!!!!

It's a Friday morning and it's cold and rainy- yuck.
However, I don't feel horrendous as I know I would have in the past.
Some big shifts on the horizon- particularly at work and I just don't know what that may mean for me. I feel cautiously optimistic.

My parents are moving to Florida so my mother gave me loads of clothes. I've barely sorted through them. I put a pair of jeans on this morning and said cute- a bit big, but they will do. I wanted to see who made them... size 0... I almost fainted... Chico's.
I've never been in a Chico's... vanity sizing I'm sure.

Cold and rainy here too, Carly, except I LOVE it! How great to get a pile of clothes, although I'm sure you're sorry to have your parents moving so far away. Size 0! I can't even talk to you - you're one of those perfect, unreal, beautiful women. Except you are real and so nice. Okay, I'll keep talking to you!

Good luck on the upcoming changes. I sure hope it all comes out just the way you want it to.

Thanks Carol.
On the 0- well it must be a big 0- I'm just not that thin, but the tag looks nice none the less.

You know... I just don't know if I know how I want things to work out at the job. Of course I would not turn down another promotion, but I'm not really expecting it. Next week will be here soon enough.

I'm feeling very grateful on this Thanksgiving.
I cannot possibly list all I'm grateful for, but I'm very grateful to Dr. Johnson for developing JUDDD, for that day in March of 2012 when I found LCF and stumbled onto the JUDDD boards.

Of course I'm grateful for all my JUDDD Buds. I doubt my weight loss would have been as successful and enjoyable without them and I'm sure my maintenance would not be as effortless and fun either.

I am looking forward to a nice dinner tonight where no foods are off limits. I also know that I can enjoy all the holiday goodies and festivities and if a pound or 2 sneaks on a couple extra DDs in January will take care of that.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Those are lovely sentiments Carly, and I share them. I'm thankful for you, because you have been one of my JUDDD heroes all along this journey.

Have a wonderful day! Tell Chelly Happy Thanksgiving for me.

Oh Carly, All your pictures are so great. It is a great way to show the people what JUDDD can do. We just have to keep going on this way and some day we will have pictures to show. Isn't it great that we all just fall back into DD with out thinking much about it. Before I would have ate until New Years.

You will be a knock out on New Years night I can till.

It's 2014!
I had a lovely holiday season with plenty of holiday treats. A round of EOD to get back to where I'd like to be, which is closer to 122 than 129

This is supposed to be the year of "No" at work. I am trying not to say yes to extra work responsibilities at the cost of my own work.

Let's just say I have a long way to go with this, but I'm keeping it in my consciousness.
