That's great! I love hearing about downward numbers. Don't forget to measure yourself too though. I know, it's not at all fun and the numbers can make you feel awful, but when the scale isn't moving, seeing the measurements decreasing can be a real lifesaver.

I haven't really lost any weight since late July, but I did lose almost 4 inches since then, so I know I'm getting smaller. Seeing that really is keeping me going, because I was getting really frustrated.

I will get there when I get there-once I get back to my tracker weight of 314 I will be back to 20 pounds lost- and then hopefully I can start working on the next chunk
Awesome RG!

I know I didn't gain over 2 pounds in one day, 318.4, I knew all the losses had to stop at some point and even itself out, wish I could wake up every day with a loss on the scale, talk about the motivation to keep it up!!!

RG- bounce like this is totally normal on JUDDD. Even though I am not on JUDDD I still experience it. It has something to do with water filling up the empty fat cells, or something like that. It will go down again very soon.

Yeah, for awhile I was obsessing over water and fat cells, and when your fat gets squishy it is getting ready to leave, I was constantly poking around for squishyness, I was down .2 today still have 2 pounds of water filled fat cells that I am waiting to be released....I did a bit of an experiment tonight, it is an up day, but I ate Chinese with no gluten pills, curious to see what kind of a reaction I will have, by the way I haven't had any menstural cramps since going gluten free, like 5 months of pain free periods-that in itself is enough reason to not eat gluten, I am just curious to see if I have any ill effects from this gluten full meal, going out of town for a long weekend this coming weekend, I really didn't want to but....

Was up 1 pound today, 319.2 I know eventually I will have a whoosh, just stick with it long enough!!!! Haven't ate much and stomach is not happy growling and hurting, I haven't had any side effects from gluten yesterday that I can tell, I did have a little trouble this morning with a tmi , but I know my vanished cramps are a result of no gluten- that's pretty crazy, I wonder why? No gluten means alot less processed food, which has to in itself help with a healthier me in the long run, still some stuff is processed but so much less than before!! I guess it's the small steps that you can live with is what helps, It doesn't do much good to make a change and not be able to keep it. I am rambling

Guess I skipped a day writing...I was 317.4 today after an up day loss of 1 pound, I will be going out of town tomorrow...so I might not write again til next week, I haven't decided how to treat today, if I should go ahead and do my down day or just wait til I get home, I really didn't get down day food, I knew I would be leaving and didn't want stuff to go bad and be wasted. Will probably just wait and see how day goes, and just eat one meal tonight, I have so much stuff to do before I leave

Here is my pathetic check in!! I just can't seem to get back on track and I know I need to so bad!!!! My best friend that used to have 100+ pounds on me now weighs around 40 lbs less than me, do you know how that makes me feel??? Instead of motivating me it just pushes me into a deeper hole of self pity and misery knowing that I am the fattest person I know and I just feel like why bother you fail every darn time you try and I am so quick to find a reason to break my diet,,, come on it's an every other day diet!!!!! And I seriously don't have the will power for one day??? What is wrong with me??????

Nothing is wrong with you! You are going through the battle we all face many times with our weight and our eating. You've got to be really ready and super motivated to really do it. You've got to be so committed that no event or surprise will throw you off track (at least not for more than a day, and not very often). You've got to dedicate yourself to it long enough to see some real losses and see the possibilities ahead of you, to stay motivated to push through those hard days/hours/minutes.

Use me as your motivation! My starting weight was right about where you are now, and I didn't think I could do it either. But I am doing it, day by day. And I know I'll get to my goal this time. I just know it. I wish I could share that feeling with you, RG, I really do. I feel a special connection with you, because of our similar starting weights. I was right where you are, and I know how it feels. Please, please take my hand and let me help you any way I can!

By the way, how did your friend lose her weight? Just curious. How much total has she lost? Don't let her success make you feel bad. You will be there too!

RG- I am sorry you are struggling, girl. I agree with Carol, you really have to commit to it with all your heart. Carol is amazing example of it.
You have done it before, just remember how great it felt to lose weight when you started JUDDD? Read you back posts to get motivated again. I am sure you can get back on track

Thanks ladies what is sad is I have set out every day with the hey I am back on plan- and then something stupid happens!! Once again today I am trying I know I just have to do it and not let anyone else or any thing get in my way, on a positive note regardless of how much I have been lolly gagging around I do weigh less than when I started in May, I have been bouncing mostly between 318-322 which still makes me roughly 10 to 15 pounds gone, that isn't much since May, it's still a bag and a half of potatoes and when looked at that way seems kinda huge

My friend had lapband and has lost around 140 so far, she is starting to brag a lot right now because she has lost a lot lately yay for her but I know how she has not followed diet, has abused her lap band to the point where nothing would stay down--etc so it kinda irks me that she is patting herself on the back on a social media site

I know I shouldn't concern myself with it, just focus on myself and what I need to do- and work on losing that next bag of potatoes

Congratulations on your successful DD! Resisting fast food is a HUGE victory!

You will get out of the 3s, RG. You have it in you, and you deserve it!

Well I don't think I got an accurate weigh in without my clothes I was 319.6 I put my clothes back on and weigh again 319.4 huh, jumped on again same 319.4 but I did not feel like getting undressed again, so I will go with 319.4 oh and TOM is here again for the past two months it has arrived a week early, I don't know what is up with that, in august it was the 12th and here it is the 1st I am usually right on time. Maybe it is just part of getting older, I didn't have any backpain this month to give me a heads up, but hey it's an up day so yay
