Bigmama99's journey to losing 7st with JUDDD
I'm hoping this is the correct place to start my diary. If not please let me know
I'm following juddd and I'm starting my 2nd week.
My weekly weigh-in is on a Saturday morning and I will log what I'm eating and my progress here. (If this is the correct place to do it)

I've taken some pics of what I look like today weighing in at 243lbs but not sure how I upload them so that I can track my weight as well as what I look like in pics.

I've been on every diet u can think of in the past and I do well for a week or two but then get bored... I have a good feeling about this diet and I have the support of my wonderful husband who is doing the diet with me..
Fingers crossed this will be the diet that works for us.

I'm going to do dd on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Last week when I lost 5lbs I just ate normally on my up days and I deliberately didn't eat 'diet' food as I wanted to see if it was this WOE that actually works and not just because I was eating healthier ! .. I'm very positive about this WOE now as last week I ate KFC and Chinese and still lost 5lbs.

Good luck everyone and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all xx

7/6 = 248lbs - start weight
14/6 = 243lbs - week 1
15/6 = 243lbs (ud) - daily weigh-in

Thanks I hope too feel better soon... It's 2pm now and I still haven't eaten anything yet... This is supposed to be a 'up day'... I'm not sure whether it is ok to have 2 down days in a row if I don't feel like eating today ? :sick:

zipp2play 06-17-2014 11:20 AM

If you aren't feeling well, don't push it. Enjoy your up day tomorrow. Don't fret it, for today, listen to your body

Tuesday 17th June
Well I did manage to eat today and have really just snacked on things... I felt like I hadn't eaten much but when I put it it all into my food tracker I've actually had 1148 calories.... On my up days I'm supposed to eat 2200 calories .... So not quite an up or down day...

My stomach still feels tender and hurts more when I eat so going to listen to my body and only eat if I'm actually hungry..

Bigmama99 06-18-2014 01:19 AM

Wednesday 18th June - Down day.... weight = 241lbs
My stomach is feeling a bit better today and I'm not getting the pain anymore but still feel a bit sickly. Today's dd hopefully won't be to bad.
My menu today will be...
Black coffee

Lunch @ 1pm
Meal replacement meal = 170 cals

Snack @ 4pm
Meal replacement meal = 140 cals

Meal replacement meal = 170 cals

Total = 480 cals

Thursday 18th July. Up day. Weight 239.5
Today is an up day and I'm going to eat eat eat.. I've not felt well for the last few days but feel good today.. I'm try to not eat until about 1pm so that my fast is a little longer.. so my plan today is....

Hearty soup & sandwich

Indian takeaway.
Possible glass of white wine depending how I feel.

Not sure what I will pick at the restaurant but I will pick whatever I fancy and not what normal diets tell me i should be eating haha !

Sunday 22nd June. MD. weight 239.5lbs
Yesterday had a fab time out with the girls. We ended up having a sharing platter of ribs/chicken/sausage/chips between 4of us.. Gorgeous... Then we had a posh burger & chips... Followed by 4 bottles of white wine. Then at home later that evening I had some chicken & rice... The amount I ate yesterday I was dreading getting on the scales but they have stayed the same... Maybe I'm dehydrated from the alcohol :hyst: Today is a MD. As I want tomorrow to be my DD but I don't want to allow myself to go mad after yesterday.. So I will stick to around 1200 calories today I think and just see how it goes. My mindset is definitely changing and I'm thinking of a salad and fruit which is mad when I have chocolate and crisps and biscuits in the cupboard that I could eat today if I wanted.. Got to love this diet :heart:
Will add later what I'm eating cos at the moment I have no idea.

Bigmama99 06-22-2014 01:19 AM

Sunday 22nd June... weight. 17st 2.5lbs. (240.5lbs)
Think I will post in uk metrics now as I keep getting the lbs wrong..

Bigmama99 06-22-2014 06:37 AM

Sunday 22nd June.. UD today
Just walked for 3miles with the kids in the sunshine and had my pedometer on and did 5000 steps.

3 cookies. (Naughty I know)

Bacon and tomatoes on 1slice of toast

Not sure yet.. But Taking the kids to the park so that will be more walking and we usually have a KFC afterwards... Will probably have a Chicken Caesar salad for 350 cals.... It's not that I think I have to have a salad but I enjoy a Caesar salad anyway.

I'm enjoying my MD day so far..

Bigmama99 06-22-2014 10:45 AM

Well the trip to KFC didn't go as planned and I ended up eating chicken & fries... With a chocolate sundae.... So its definitely an UD today... Total calories around 2200 but I have done loads of walking so don't feel bad... Will not eat now till 1pm tomorrow now.

zipp2play 06-23-2014 05:59 AM

Just jump back on with a DD today!

Bigmama99 06-23-2014 09:28 AM

Monday 23rd June. DD today... Weight 17st 4lbs
Doing well so far today.. It 5:30pm now and all I've eaten so far is a cuppa soup. Having a chicken chowmein ready meal for 345cals and I have some berries for later. Going swimming for 1/2hr as well tonight.
