Diet fatigue has a lot to answer for - but it does highlight the truth that it's a clue to our need for constant vigilance during maintenance (especially the first few months/years).
Yes indeed. It seems unfair that the struggle to lose weight doesn't end when the weight is gone, or should I say the way of eating (4-letter word: DIET) continues to be necessary. Even though, logically, we all know it to be true.

I am feeling very tired of the struggle myself today. I am losing SOo SLoooowly this time that it is very hard to stay motivated. I have been back on rotations for a month and have lost 4 pounds. I know, that is 4 pounds down... But most of it was the beginning whoosh and i have struggling for 2.5 weeks with the same 1 pound! I have been doing really good EOD rotations, and not even feeling resentful about DD, but after 2.5 weeks now trying to get through the same pound and not succeeding, i am wondering WHY i am going to all the trouble... Sorry. pity party day

Can I join your party? I lost the first 9 lbs easily and now I am just maintaining..........HOWEVER, I do know the reason, (I THINK). I have not been mindful on recording the food that I am eating and I am pretty darn sure that I am not hitting my DD numbers and then am low on the UD numbers and VIOLA, maintenance.....makes sense to me! So, today being a DD I vow to record my numbers and have a true DD!!! I just get so comfortable in this body that I think it will do it for me without recording.....NOT!

Jennifer, other than the scale, how are you feeling physically? Mental clarity? any medical things feeling better, clothes getting looser? Any other ways to help you keep going until the scale gets its act together?

I'm at the extreme end of needing to lose weight. The scale is moving and I'm happy, but my knees don't hurt as much, my ankles stopped swelling and I have the energy to exercise for the first time in probably a DECADE! so I'm good for today

And if nothing else is improving, that's cool, I'm just happy to be invited to the party, pity and all. Glad you posted

Yes, thanks for the reminder. Maybe that is part of why i am frustrated because i FEEL like i am losing, but then the scale doesn't budge. So glad it is moving for you! It is much easier to stay motivated when it is obviously working.
However, my arthritis has been flaring this week, getting progressively worse after being better, which may explain the slow down, i guess. ? Yesterday and the day before i had a LOT of pain and stiffness. Today is better, so maybe i will see a drop soon. There is always hope i guess.

Donna, good luck recording. Hope it helps!

I feel ya, Jennifer. I'm on my 7th wk of LC and down 4 lbs. I have had a few cheat days, so that probably accounts for it, but for the most part I've been sticking to it. It seems like when we decide we're ready to start losing it should come off by sheer willpower.

Of course, after my balanced, well-adjusted thoughts on scales the other day. It bounced up today...

And I've decided on a divorce. This scale is too old and obviously *****y. It may be losing it's mental clarity. I want a new, more compliant prettier scale. We're done.

"I can do anything for one day". Wow, those are powerful words. This board is most definitely the ultimate in support and constructive feedback. I have made every excuse in the world for the fails and find that I no longer choose participate in that game. Small victories do mean something, and Cindy, you can do this! We all have triggers, excuses and life issues that hold us back. Do the da--ed thing for one day I say. It works! If I don't stay at 500 or less and creep up to 600, no biggie because it's less, and my UD's are simply normal. I no longer count the calories. If it's less than 1500 then fine. I eat when hungry, eat ONLY what I really want, and relax into the process more. I am now keeping my carbs at 60 or less, and pretty much limit to once a day. I now appreciate things like quinoa, more fruit and veggies and less of my beloved sourdough bread. I feel better which translates to look better. I agree about stabilizing your current weight and then move forward. It's one wonderful day at a time with no guilt. I am honest about not really liking exercise, but do it at least 3x a week anyway. I can make the most creative excuses believe me!

Quiet, I really believe that the attitude of people here is one of the reasons JUDDD is such a success.

I think we are such a happy, friendly, supportive bunch because no foods are off limits (unless we chose to do that) so we don't feel deprived and therefore we are a happier group

Today is a DD and the weight started moving today. So today I will fight the crazy thinking "you can eat more, the scale is moving, it won't show". It feels like by saying that out loud, I have taken the claws out of that old diet monster! It is true that the struggle doesn't feel nearly as exhausting when I can come here and you guys are here somewhere hanging out in the ether, sharing the struggle.

Today the scale went down another pound. This should be a good thing and is, but the crazy brain is absolutely on steroids.

I'm going to "tell the truth and shame the devil" so maybe saying this out loud to you wonderful folks will take some of the power and mojo out of this destructive inner talk that has ruined my life and health for so long.

"You are doing so well, you can have an UP UP AND AWAY DAY." is one side of the insanity. The flip side is, "You have so far to go, this is just a drop in the bucket. You're going to give up anyway, just do it now and go binge yourself into numbness." On paper I can see the crazy, but in my head they have always seemed logical and even intimidating.

I don't know what it is about JUDD or being on these boards, but I can see and hear the diet thinking for what it is better than I can ever remember doing before. Maybe it's the days when I don't eat or think about food and it allows some room for calm and sanity. Maybe its you guys, and your compassionate attitude toward yourselves and each other (and me) whatever, I am truly grateful. Because just by saying it out loud to you, even though you are off living your lives (you don't really live in my computer do you?) I feel heard and supported and it feels like there is hope I can walk toward and the truth might win at least for this day, this one UP day.

Anyway, thanks for giving me a place to say/type this. Thanks for being there. You know you JUDDD BUDDS are probably saving my life, right? Imagine a smootchie face here cause I never mastered the emojiis.

Quietnight YOU can do this! You're doing great! And yes... you are heard and we care about you. Love your honesty.
For me, sometimes I have to break it down to smaller time frames. When that diet brain starts telling me to "go ahead and take a taste" I tell myself I have to wait one more hour. Usually by then I'm over it and back in control.

My brain works just like yours, QN. It also adds that I am 67 (68 next month) and that if I haven't been able to find peace with my body by now it just ain't gonna happen.......so why not just relax into who/what I really am?
I am hanging on by my toenails and the only thing keeping me close to sane is doing a DD every other day.
I AM NOT GIVING UP.
You expressed my thoughts about the JBs very well.
Hugs all around.

I hope everyone had a good day. I just wanted to update that I had completely legit UD, no food weirdness. It really does help to get it out on here and not struggle alone. It was a calm day, I'm so glad I came here first thing. Thanks.

This is what it's all about: starting to have the "space" to step back and see how we talk to ourselves, share it, then change the conversation in our own minds. Thank you, QN, for putting this out there. You're definitely not alone
