Oh thank you so much. You are so sweet. I really found a gold mine of friends when I found JUDDD. I have been watching you,carly and Dawn right from the first day. I made up my mind if you all could do it so could I. Thanks for all your help. I am going to give this a try and see how this goes. God Bless Judy

I think if you try just doing Lower Carb, not full blown LC, your numbers may work well! Forgive me, I truly don't know...is 103 that much worse than 95? I know when my MOM tests, often it matters little to what she has eaten for fluxtuations from 10-20 points. Was the DR alarmed enough to suggest meds? Or just closer monitoring? Do you test at all at home? Maybe you should start? Make a BS journal? Start just doing it for morning readings?

Hey Monica'

He said no meds unless I get to 125 to 150 range. White flour, rice, pasta,potatoes,sugar are all nono,s. Oh and desserts. I will get this under control. When I was 95 I was doing lowcarb. This 6 months I had added everything back and was looseing great and then the sugar came up but it is going to go down. I will learn how to combine the two diets with all the help my JUDDD BUDDD,s have gave me. I have the best people in the world helping.Love you thanks for all you help! Judy

To day is Sat. the 19th and I have to work from noon till 10 pm so it will be long today. I have been trying to combine booth diets and I am not so good so far. I get the numbers right and the carbs are wrong or I get the carbs right and the cals are way off. Oh well it will come with time. top it all off I am takeing my mom down to Gatlinburg next week end and there will be big temptations again. She has been fuseing for the last 2 years to go but has been unable. She is 83. I am going to drive her down and try to let her see the pretty trees and fall decorations. She is on a walker and can,t walk much so she won,t get to see much in town.

So far I keep bounceing from DD 147 to up day 150 and back. I will over come.

Bummer about having to work on a Saturday. But it is good to have that work, I know. The trip with your mom sounds good. I hope you get to see some pretty sights.

I'm sure combining LC and JUDDD is a little tricky, especially after not having to keep them both up for awhile. LC does pose some unique challenges, on DD mostly. You don't get a whole lot of volume, but I've found that if I can get past that mentally, I realize that those tiny amounts of fat and protein really can satisfy me and keep me full a long time. It just looks so tiny on a plate!

Just popping by to say Hi. I am sure you will get your carbs and calories aligned soon and you will be back on the weight loss trail and in pursuit of better blood sugar numbers.

How wonderful to spend time with your mother enjoying some fall colors. Wishing you a splendid trip.

Talk to you another time.

Joni

Hi All you great girls,

Sorry I have not been on but have been working and takeing classes that I did not know about and getting the house and yard ready for winter plus getting ready for the trip. I was at the nurseing home last night doing the wash and takeing her a suitcase for the trip. Sat worked 11 hours. Sun worked on house and yard.

My weight is still not moveing and I hope that this trip does not make me go up but if it does I know how to get it off so I just have to work harder. I know this is a on going thing. Carol Thanks for stopping in again. I have been trying to catch up with the new threads and have been reading your replies to some of the girls. I am picking up hints from your answers. going to put them to good use.

Monica how far have you lost now? How much for your son?

Joni Thanks for the good wishes for the trip. How is hubby and grandkids and is there any mini trips your way?

Windy, we are both sort of maintaining. For him that is GREAT, for me, not so great. I really need to lose 10 - 15 more pounds! Living life though, so that may not happen till after the Holiday's!

Hi windygap! Just checking to see if you had posted a 'last weekend trip' report. Hope you had a great time and a special trip for you and your mom.

We are on our way to having a babysitting the two little grandsons weekend. Son and daughter-in-law are going on an overnight wine tasting trip with her parents. Looking forward to seeing the little ones. Grandpa wants to take them bowling. Could be interesting with a 4 and 2 year old.

All is well. Basically have been stalled out at the weight loss for a couple months now. Still just doing my no counting carbs, basically just eating protein, green salad, green veggies. Way too much blue cheese dressing though and way too many pumpkin seeds. So am happy to be maintaining. Have been thinking of joining a challenge here to maybe get motivated.

Anyway, will stop by over the day to see if you have posted. Wishing you well!

Joni

dear diary,

Last week on Friday something bad happened at work before I left for my trip and I am very up set and my job is on the line I think. I left very upset and I can not talk about it now nor do I want to. I came back from my trip still very upset and have been very upset all week. I know some thing is going on but I am being left out the loop which is really worring me. My trip went well and I will get on latter tonight and tell all. My sister just called as I got on and wanted to go to the thrift store. She thinks that will cheer me up so I have to get off to get ready. I know I can not explain the problem but my job and retirement is on the line please pray for me that all will come out ok and that I will not loose my job or retirement package. I am scared out of my mind at this point.

Dear Joni your babysitting sounds great hope all went well. I too am stalled at 147. I am thankfull for that right now. Its a wonder I have not went sky high with what is going on. I am trying to just do JUDDD with no lowcarb because I can not consentrate on any thing right now I am only watching the low day number to stay under. My high days I am not counting because I am out of it mentally. I am just trying to maintain until this is over and God help me if I loose every thing. I refuse to think what will happen to me.

Monica all went well and I will tell all later today when I get back. Love to you both.

Dear Diary,

Well after a really bad start Friday night before we left all things went well. I was late getting mom but she was soo excited she did not care. We left sat. at 8 am and got to pigeon Forge about 1:45. We ate a big lunch at the old
Mill. Then we went on to Gatlinburg and checked in. I unpacked the car then we tried to walk to the village to show her the stores. She walked a lot further then she has in years. We bought my sister some cream she wanted that they did not have in July at a bodycream and soap store. Then we walked thru the Thomas Kincade Gallary . After that she stopped and rested out side the donut shop. She got to see where we eat breakfast every day. Then I took her on around the circle and she shopped in 2 stores. Then on the way back she stopped to rest at the icecream store so we had to try some. Back to the room after that for the evening. She got a big kick to find out that she could watch Lawrance Welk show on tv in Tenn.

The next day we decided to go back to the village to take pictures before it rained and to pick up a nite light that she had seen. Then we went to the taffy store and got candy for every one back home. I took her down about 4 stores across the street and then she set and people watched while I went up the road to get a tee shirt I wanted. Then we headed to the hotel to get the car for a road trip in the Mts.

I showed her where we hike two trails then took her to our picnic spot by a creek. I had took a picnic and a chair and put it by the creek by the big rock that my sister and I sit on every time we hike. She ate and watched the little water fall for awhile. After that I finished that road and then took her about 10 miles to the other trails we hike. On the way back we took the the road that all the craft people have there shops. We stopped and walked to about 10 shops then headed back to town and went to the Texas Road House to eat. When we got to the hotel she wanted me to go out and walk around town like I would if my sister was there and shop after dark. I did that all up and down the town then stopped and got a coffee and set and watched people in the Village walking around the water fountain with fire coming out the top of it. Kids were throwing change in the water and adults were eating all kinds of goodies and drinking hot drinks to keep the night chill down.

the next day we packed and went into Pigeon Forge and I showed her the Pottery Shop and another shop and the we made the trip back home. We left Tenn. at 11am and got to her place at 7pm.

Well now you have the whole story diary. Mom loved the trip except the for one out house at the state park. She was raised with a out house all her younger years on a farm and our first house back in the 50's had one but she did not like the new ones for some reason. HEHEHE!!!!!!!! and that is the end of the story

I completely agree with LoCarbGal. Not only does your trip sound as though it was wonderful but your way with words is simply entrancing. What a marvelous storyteller you are [and BTW, what a loving and good daughter].
I do so love your posts Windy and send you all good wishes.
