March Daily or Alternate Day Weigh-In
 
St Patrick's Day, Easter preparations - JUDDD allows us to treat such occasions as part of the rhythm of our lives, and opportunities to apply what we know and choose to look forward to celebrations and seasonal events.

You know the drill, JBs - this is where we announce our goals for the month and we report the results of our daily or alternate day weigh-ins. Dr Johnson recommends weekly weigh-ins for preference, but for those of us who prefer more regular feedback than that he advises that we or others who are demoralised by bouncing should practise alternate day weigh-ins, after a DD.

We have weekly weigh-ins for those who prefer those: https://lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=885767

Why Scales Can Lie: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...d.php?t=544425

Please, always remember, the scale is the least informative way of tracking the changes in our bodies when we follow a fasting lifestyle: we do it because it's a readily accessible proxy for those changes. How you feel, changes in the fit of your clothes, changes in photographs you monitor, improvements in blood pressure etc. are much better indicators. Yoni Freedhoff has a classic posts about what real world weight loss looks like over time: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...f#post17150890

And, seriously, if weigh-in numbers are likely to influence your mood, think very seriously about using something else to assess your progress. The number on the scale is context-free and is influenced by so many factors that can mask progress: use a piece of clothing; measure in several places; use regular photographs from several angles (same clothes, lighting conditions etc.); track your health.

I’m back! I did JUDDD several years ago and although I never got to goal, JUDDD got me to my lowest weight in 20 years. It’s been the only thing that’s really worked for me, so here I am. I’ve been low carb for about 10 years but I just don’t lose on low carb alone. I hope posting my weight here will keep me on track.

Today is the 2 week mark for me and I haven’t seen any weight loss yet, but I can tell my hormones are more balanced already, having my first TOM in 9 months. ADF is pretty amazing.

3/1 - DD
3/2 - 203.5
