I completely agree with this. I only weigh about once a week or every other week. I will NOT be dicated by the number. Don't let it DEFINE you either!

You are doing great. I see you stay away from gluten. Is it choice or health determined? I ask because I have Celiac!

Bahahahahaha! Dementors are the perfect way to describe them!
Of course, now that I'm losing weight, my mom is all into IF like she discovered it. Posting about IF all over Facebook, commenting on it, etc. Luckily for me she lives several thousand miles away so its hard for her to affect me now.
My grandma is closer but she's still 2+ hours away by car. My son is the perfect excuse not to go down there. She's full of reasons why she can't lose weight which are all baloney. Which, fine, if you're comfortable where you're at and don't want to lose weight - fine. But then quit whining about it. <-- That is not a statement directed towards only people who have weight to lose - for Pete's sake, I'm one of them. Its more directed against people who claim they want something but whinge and excuse and moan and groan about all the (imagined) reasons why they can't just do it. Usually because they're scared, fine, I get that but then shush up about it. At least when I was (still am, but working on it) heavier, I didn't go around telling everyone all the reasons why I could lose weight if only it weren't for <insert excuse here>.
Ok, sorry to hijack your journal. Apparently I needed a bit of a vent as well. That's what we're here for, dear friend, and why we have these journals. You vent away!!!

Monica- I have never been tested for celiac or intolerance, I decided to just do it myself to see if some problems would improve I now I have more energy, acid reflux gone, headaches gone, I have accidentally ate gluten twice and the next day I would feel like crap, then double check to see what I ate the day before and find the culprit. So I think I for sure have ill effects.

Yennie-hijack my journal whenever you want! Ugh it is so easy to make up excuses for not doing stuff especially if it is something hard that is going to take a long time like weight loss, it is frustrating especially for someone as big as me, and sometimes I just think ugh why bother its not going to happen, and no it won't over night or in a few months, I have to be in this for the long haul! I was up .6 today after my down day yesterday, wasn't too thrilled but hey no biggie I know it's not real weight haha, didn't have enough calories on my downday to equal half a pound, I have noticed that I have been at the same weight for basically the past 5 days, hopefully within the next few days there will be a whoosh been cleaning all day but not making much progress, it's another one of those ugh why bother doing it problems. Going to fix pork steaks again tonight.

Another day down, once again I didn't get all my calories, I tried I just don't have a lot of hunger on my up days, I am hungrier on my down days, I had energy today it was fantastic, cleaned all day and then fixed dinner for everyone, and took a nice bath, came upstairs to bed, sure is hot upstairs, no central air and only have window units downstairs, got the fan on full blast which I hate the fan blowing on my skin, I think I have some sort of sensory problem, I don't like being touched much, a lot of times it gives me creepy crawly feeling....tomorrow will be a busy day- have so much to do, funny everything fell on one day I can go all week and not leave the house and then bam!!! But I am glad to have stuff to do, gets me out of the house for awhile!!! But no a/c in our vehicle so it is pretty miserable. Anyways here's hoping I can fall asleep soon!!!

Today has been bad. Was down .2 which still keeps me at this damn .8 of a pound that I have been bouncing around all week, every up day I tell myself I will get all my calories in, and then I can't do it, I feel so sluggish and weak but that doesn't compare to my emotional side today, I have been so empty and lonely today, my non biological niece(only niece) is gone, her dad left with her today to Florida, only a 20 hour drive lol (my sister had got married not long after his wife died in childbirth-niece just turned 1 a couple months ago-their marriage didn't last) that has left an empty open wound, which opened the flood gate for self pity- I have pretty much wallowed in everything that is wrong in my life today- aka being so over weight, being alone, having no job- all those things that really hurt when you let them. I begged my best friend to stay a little bit, I just needed someone around- I know she has other things to do- but a half hour would not of killed her, that hurt! I am not a high maintenance friend in terms of my emotional needs, I keep most of myself to myself, but the one time I need something-nothing. Yeah just straight up self pity today, I haven't logged my calories yet, I need too, I don't know what else to cram into my mouth, I am not hungry, actually as of this moment my stomach is still full from eating 5 hours ago.

Oh honey, I'm sorry you're having a rough day! Its hard to have family leave and move far away. I don't know how hot it is where you are but if going for a walk an option? I know you're not feeding your emotions but do remember that food won't solve the problem...and often creates more.
Hugs to you dear.

That is a fantastic amount for your first month! I congratulate you, especially when you consider you're only dieting every other day! So, basically, in 15 days on a diet, you lost 10 pounds! What an achievement!

Thank you yennie, been so discouraged but 10 pound is not bad and really only 11 days, had 10 down days and one full day in stillmans, so yeah that's good, once I can get past this pound I will be happy, no I don't want to eat, was just trying to get near my up day calories. I think I need to pay more attention to my water, been slacking on it and not drinking enough, if that doesn't work I am going to cut out my coffee again, I just had a serving of almonds, so that is almost 200 closer to calories.

Since reading about squishy fat I am constantly touching my stomach, I think some is squishy...none of my fat seems firms except for my tree trunk legs, just laughing At a visual of every fat person constant jiggling their fat around. Been sucking water down today! Hoping it will help I don't feel as miserable emotionally as I did earlier I think it helped some just to post- and then I felt worst bc here I am whining about petty crap and I think about all the storms in Oklahoma and lives lost and it makes me feel about an inch tall. Those storms are heading into my state, I hope they break up before they get all the way to my side of state.

I did end up getting close to my calories courtesy of peanut butter, 323.8 surprise surprise haha!! I will leave this number in the dust....eventually I woke up with more squishy fat than what I went to bed with, and yes I will be obsessing over squishy fat (especially when scale is not cooperating) so a whoosh should be on the horizon, today is a down day, I start a volunteer position today so I will have a few busy hours which will be nice

I know you said you're drinking water but I'd like to suggest you try lemon water if you like it. I keep a pitcher in the fridge, 1 sliced and squeezed lemon in it. I usually end up refilling it 3-4 times before I toss the lemon and get a fresh one.
There is a thread on the JUDDD board, and I think I linked it in my journal, about the benefits of lemon water. I really feel like it makes a huge difference for me. My stalls are usually associated with when I forget to drink enough of my lemon water.
Congrats on the volunteer position.

I have been tired today, actually exhausted...I laid down for 3 hours and was awake the whole time, just trying to sleep my mind wouldn't shut down, probably bc I had a cup of coffee later in the day, so what is my idiot self doing at midnight, having another cup, hoping to ward off the hunger that has crept up on me. I ate potatoes at 5pm-ish and quite a lot 330 calories worth but here I am hungry again, now tomorrow I won't be hungry and will struggle with calories... Maybe eventually I will find that happy medium, today does mark 21 days on juddd and I haven't had a hog wild day yet pretty awesome.

I was up again today now at 324, I know other people gained at week 3 but I am still second guessing myself, am I eating too much on down days and not enough on up days, I don't expect a miracloulous weight loss, but I sure don't want to gain, especially after a down day!!!! This is the start of week 4 on plan, which is great cant believe it has almost been a month but I really need some sort of sign that it is working, like a shift down in the scale, you know I think I screwed myself up I decided to do a Labor Day goal and it was to be under 300 I don't think I have lost since then...could my subconscious be that much of a jerk?

Don't give up! A lot of our superstars stalled or even gained in week 3! It is working. If you're sticking to your DD and UD cals, its working.
You had mentioned struggling to get in your UD cals, that could be why the stall. And remember JUDDD is not linear so you can expect bounces, even after a DD. It happens!!
Hang in there!

Oh no I am not giving up!!! Regardless this plan is easy and I would be stupid to quit it! Yeah I was reading about ppl and their weight Gain on week 3, so it is giving me a little hope to keep me going, but I still have all that doubt.

Out of curiosity I wanted to see what weight would get me out of the morbid obesity range...233 is the magic number that would just put me at obese class 2, that is 88.8 pounds away, I am not worried about a label at all, I am more excited to get out of the 300s, now that will be a day for celebration, and hasn't happened in a long time, at least 8 years ago, that's when my life kinda fell apart lost my job, apartment, car, everything....not to mention my clothes ate my way out of all of them. And even last year I came close while doing stillmans I think 305, but I gave up...not this time....this time I am gonna do it right, slow and steady okay not so much steady this is juddd after all more like slow, unpredictable and nerve racking haha....but hey if losing slow means it is more likely to stay off then yes I would rather lose slow and do it once, who wants to lose 50 pounds only to gain 60 back...not me

Just found your journal, RG, after seeing you refer to it in the JUDDD boards. I wanted to chime in, in support of you, because I started out over 300 pounds a year and a half ago. I'm now closing in on Onederland (although it's a bit elusive at the moment). Please, please know that you can do this! If I can, you can. I feel so much better physically, mentally, everything!

You WILL be having to get rid of all your clothes. I have donated so much stuff. Right now my mom (almost 80 years old and has joined in the JUDDD fun for 3 months now) is altering a bunch of my tops that have gotten too big, to the point of making me look huge when I wear them. They're looking great! For me it took awhile to see a difference and to have people notice my losses. Plus, I went for a really long time before trying to wear smaller clothes, which also masks losses. I totally know what you mean about clothes - you don't want them to cling and show the fat. I've always liked my clothes a little flowy and loose, but truly, now that I've lost this much, I do look MUCH smaller in more fitted (not tight!) clothes.

You are doing so well, and losing well. I'm so happy for you and am going to watch with glee as you continue to get smaller and smaller!

Congrats again! Need to update your ticker girlie! (LOL, I'm one who changes mine immediately when I hit a new low ).
You'll be ditching your clothes for new ones before you know it. And you're right - the slower it comes off (within reason of course) the more likely you'll be to keep it off. At least that's what I tell myself when my losses slow (like now). And it also gives your skin time to tighten up so you're less likely to have (as much) baggy skin. I think some is inevitable - I don't think any of us can avoid it completely but hopefully slower losses will help it tighten up!

Looks like you are progressing right along! Keep it up. Remember, getting in all your UP DAY calories is almost more important than lowering your Down day calories! You can do it. Nuts, PB, full fat dressing....easy ways to really increase calories.

I also ended up having some ice cream with no ill side effects, amazing how my lactose intolerance has disappeared after giving up gluten, but I had read that your body can get so messed up from gluten it will make you react to other things, looking forward to tomorrow's down day, I guess because I am so full (pleasantly not miserably) but I feel that my body needs a break....yeah I say that now haha. I still have some struggles on my down days more than I had when I first started, I am hoping that juddd calm comes that people talk about, I am certain the scale will be not be friendly in the morning, I didn't eat anything til 7pm I wanted to fully enjoy dinner best part almost a month on plan and my best friend has no idea I am on a plan because she gets to see me eat often enough hahaha I love it!!!
