went to a Christmas Eve party with some people i haven't seen since the summer. i can't tell you how many people commented on my weight loss! they were even going up to my husband and saying how nice i looked. it was so very very good to hear that my hard work has been paying off! it also made me realize how ummmm - frumpy i must have looked before. that kind of reaction can only mean that i really had let myself go. BUT - i'll take it!!

The positive comments are always nice and the fact that you're having such success with JUDDD is even better. Keep up the great work Colleen.

You couldn't look frumpy if you tried Colleen.

I am delighted that your new slimline body was noticed, bet DH was happy for you too.

I'm sure you weren't frumpy before, but I totally get what you're saying.

Dawn, that is so GREAT! I'm so glad you're enjoying the attention, and that it has been flattering and not creepy. That makes all the difference. You are looking beautiful, and being noticed is wonderful! Revel in it, GF!

Colleen, I love that your husband is getting the comments! I'll bet your newfound confidence has as much to do with people seeing you differently as your losses do. Wonderful!


Mine is that we got pizza delivered the other night, and I got blatantly checked out by the delivery guy, who subsequently got a great tip!

Love that, if we could only all do that each time temptation raises it's ugly head we'd be a lot better for it. You should be very proud!

Thoughtful or conscious eating is, I think, healthy physically, healthy emotionally, and something many of us have to learn incrementally.

Mindless or reactive eating is so easy and oh so frequently just not healthy.

Congratulations on taking a big step towards health!

Love to come here and read - there are some sexy women here... and compliments are wonderful!! Pizza delivery men... LOL

Great advice Nancy! When I eat spur of the moment - it's never raw veggies or fruit... quick, mindless = junk ... for me.

Congrats on everyone's NSV!

Very fun guys!
I have been in my recluse stage since the overdose if Christmas functions.
My hubby gives my NSV.
Like this morning fresh from crawling out of bed, bed hair, dog breath and all.
He notices my ankles are back.
He said I had lost my cankles, can't spell it correctly.
But where my ankle and leg meets, u know where swelling or fat lives.
Yes I have ankles today!
Now I'm I grabbing at straws

I posted this in another thread, and Kissa sent me to copy it over here .

One of the things I’ve learned from intermittent calorie restriction is that I don’t really enjoy eating too much, and that I often eat because I feel it’s expected of me. It seems really stupid to get fat eating food I don’t even want, just because I’m sitting at a table with people who want to eat more than I do, or because even though I just want a small meal, restaurants generally serve big ones.

This one is an nsv I heard about before but only fully experienced this holiday. It is the feeling over the holidays, even on a UUAD, that all is well. I used to overeat during the holiday and become more miserable each day - I mean deeply unhappy with myself, because I'd lost any sense of self-management and self-care. I always imagine that's the feeling addicts have when they're using. It's a kind of despair. It was just a lousy relationship with food. Even delicious Christmas food.

During this holiday I felt overly full many days, but never deeply unhappy. Sometimes I emerged from uuads disappointed in myself for a short time, but I can deal with that with one dd.
It is a truly wonderful thing to enjoy great food and family without that horrid current of misery underneath.
"I avoided despair" doesn't sound like much of an nsv (), but it was a biggie for me.

Kristin I could have written this myself. This was exactly how I felt. No horrid guilt and self loathing. I simply thought 'Oh well it is Christmas and I am having so much fun with family it doesn't matter, because I will soon be back doing rotations'.

And here we are. And it is a biggie.

i know that feeling of despair!! good for you being able to keep it at bay. it is so good when we are able to realize that one bad day or even a week or two is NOT the end all be all!

i think that is a wonderful NSV.

I didn't realize until reading your post, the same occurred thing for me!! It is truly a wonderful feeling. I ate what I wanted and while I did overeat it wasn't to the point that I was physically uncomfortable and I didn't feel bad about it. I was only off course for a week so the associated guilt and fear was lessened significantly. I was significantly up on the scale but I know it was mostly water weight since it's not possible for me to gain 12lbs in 2 weeks (that and I hold a lot of water weight) and went back on track after boxing day.

BTW - I made a mistake in my calculations for yesterday, I only went over 300 calories on yesterday's UD, not 700 phew! I added the whole amount instead of the food instead of dividing it by individual serving. D'oh

Another NSV is that so far I've been able to stay at 500cal DD today and I don't feel miserable. I think I'll need to go to sleep soon before the hunger strikes - I already brushed my teeth.
