Thank you, Slow! I know I speak for all when I say how much I appreciate all you do for the JUDDD community. Every. Day.

I start my December in good shape mentally and physically. Surprisingly, I find myself in WLM, having worked out a plan to weave in and out of my various social commitments and travels for the next week.

I've learned this year that I need a plan. Without a plan, i lose focus and get nervy and doubt myself, and, oddly enough, I don't enjoy eating. With a plan, I enjoy whatever is on my menu, with relish. The plan keeps me focused.

Today my plan says: "It's a DD, but it's okay if you balloon your cals up, because you're taking two friends from your youth out to lunch, and driving across Vermont and back to do so. 500 optimum; 800 good; 1000 acceptable. But you must stay LC." My plan also is to not mention to my friends that it's a DD; to see if I can do that. Not because I worry about their reaction, BTW, but because I'm such a blabbermouth, and I'd like to start cutting back on how much I talk about weight management with non-JB's.

I shall report back tonight and let y'all know how I did, 'cause I know you care!

p0rtia - Excellent plan and way to work JUDDD!

I was going to try to post in these monthly chats, but I was repeating in the chats what I was in the challenge thread. The challenge thread won. But being there's no December challenge thread just yet, here I am.

It dawned on me that I've been back on JUDDD for a month. Well, almost considering last week's cruise vacation was not on plan. But, I'm making it a goal to check in the forum after I get any necessities out of the way at work. My DDs are going great so far and have been relatively easy. Sticking to mainly low carb eating helps with that, for me anyway. Tomorrow will be two weeks since I've weighed and I'm already trying to be strong in my mind that even if the scale hasn't moved - or even got up due to last week - I won't let it derail me.

Gee, I think that might actually be an NSV. I think I'll post it there, too.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ain't that the truth.

Well done Vanilla! Gosh I remember when we were both trying to make regular LC work, years and years ago. I was just floundering basically. So glad we're here now, on the right track.

I am having a very good Dec. 1st because I started at the gym (Curves) today!! I wrote about it in the November thread, but basically - this is a really big deal for me, you guys. I haven't been part of any sort of consistent fitness club/activity for about 6-7 years, just a ridiculous amount. It's a huge step - I went and paid 3 months upfront, and I had my first session. It was fine, I just felt a little like throwing up around the middle of the session, but sat down for 5 minutes and then was able to finish. And then I walked home (1 km). I'm hoping to go 4-5 times a week if I can. I am worried about DDs and the gym as I'm starting out, but know I'll figure it out. I'll look for old threads about working out on DDs.

Yesterday I had a good DD (about 550 cals) and went with DH to walk the dogs in the evening (3 kms - I think it's like 1.8 miles).

This week will only be 2 DDs for me because Sat and Sun will both be UDs, but still I think it's been a great week for me and I feel good.

Just a quick post to say hi! We are waiting to board our flight in Sarasota and head back to NY. It was a lovely visit and the weather was perfect! We went to the beach twice. Lido beach for those familiar with the area. Great shells the first day. I even found a perfect sand dollar. Iíll attach the picture. A picture of me and myself and DW can be found in my journal.

Carly, I love the way your hand makes a heart in that pic. Glad you had such a lovely vaca.

I agree with all about how the plan makes the food taste better.

I am going to spend this weekend really reflecting, planning and setting myself up for success and PEACE through this December and holiday season. With a good plan!

Bluebelle, I often work out empty. But as you are just starting out you may find it tough. Staying hydrated is so important. And being well hydrated before you work out is crucial. If you can manage a protein/higher fat breakfast I would recommend that rather than a carb/sugar based one. I don't know if you aim for LC DDs or not, but that might be the best option.

Nilla, that its definitely an NSV!

Carly, that is just beautiful, I am so glad you had a great time.

Yes, Cindy, the trip has been lovely, but ready to be home now- minus the cold and dark. I donít even really mind going back to work on Monday.

Happy to report that I soared through the day with no hunger and no problems. Had a greek salad for lunch that was very light on the feta (about a tablespoon) and olives (four). No more than 200 cals (and that's aiming way high). Had a nice snack when I got home: 450 for the day and LC. Plus I never mentioned that it was a DD. Yay!

Challenge thread coming Monday! Hope to see you there.

This is wonderful to hear. Congratulations! We talk every now and then about exercise on DDs. The consensus seems to be that there's no reason not to exercise to your heart's content on DDs. I throw in my experience with playing tennis for two plus hours in the heat of Florida on DDs. If you consistently run into light-headed/nausea problems, so be it--everyone is different--but I'm confident it will work out too. It's not like you're on day three of a water fast. So good luck!

Wow! That sand dollar is a wonder. Very good luck, too. Hope you made it home safe.

We drove back to London today and I look forward to my 'kind' scales. It isn't even a pound different but I am silly about it, lol.

Well the 'season' is well and truly upon us. I have to order the bird and a ham, I have prepared one stuffing and frozen it. The larder is pretty well stocked and the wine has been purchased (that is DH's department).

I love so many of us are feeling in control this year. I have had an astonishingly calm year weight wise. I have to remind myself that I look better between 119 and 123 than I did at 117. At my age the face counts more that my backside.

Looking forward to the new Challenge thread p0rtia.

Yes! Florida will do that. She is much better. She still needs insulin which was not expected and she still tires more easily than normal, but feels ready to return to work on Monday. That will be the real test. She has a desk job, but it will be more activity than she has done in over 3 weeks.

Itís cold in NY... brrrrrr

tbh, Carly, it looks like DW is convalescing and is rallying well after a relaxing time with you. The convalescent look is hardly surprising after everything the two of you have been through in recent weeks. I'm sorry that she has to continue the insulin and hope that she stays clear of any secondary problems as she has plenty of health issues to contend with already.

DW's fatigue is to be expected tho' it's good that while she was in hospital she probably had her vitamin and mineral status monitored (e.g., iron/ferritin, vitamins B12 and D, folate etc.)? It's sometimes surprising what a difference a few points makes to fatigue when people have several chronic conditions and are older.

Thank you all again for your good wishes. I'm having a substantial problem with fatigue at present and it seems to be part and parcel of the auto-immune arthritis. It's not helped by the on-going difficulty in raising my vitamin D level above the 'severe deficiency' category. (To put this into US units, I'm usually <8ug/L so I feel better if I manage to increase it to 12ug/L).

It's difficult for me to supplement above a particular level as I react to vitamin D in similar ways that I do to aspirin and NSAIDs (increased tinnitus and it can interfere with my balance etc.). This might also be related to a rare genetic disorder that I have that I managed very well for decades but is now becoming a little trickier, in part, because it is something with a systemic influence.

I'm sure this is just a bump in the road and I know that overall my health is excellent so these are relatively minor issues. But the fatigue, in conjunction with the auto-immune nuisances, and on-going sleep issues is making everything seem like wading through the proverbial molasses.

I think that I need a holiday somewhere sunny where I won't burn my very fair skin and I can eat lots of oily fish.

Her PCP said she will likely be tired for a couple months!!!! But the fatigue is improving. Yes, her blood levels were closely monitored in the hospital.

DW and I are often deficient in vitamin D. DW has been given rx vitamin D on a few occasions, but recently we have managed ours with 2000 units a day during the summer and 5000 units during the winter. That reminds me that I need to switch ours over to the 5000 now.

I'm so sorry you are struggling like you are. Fatigue is just dreadful and not easy when you are working commuting and just trying to keep life's tasks above water.

I have very fair skin, being a strawberry blonde, so I use SPF 50 when out in the sun- especially at the beach!!!! I only got a tiny little burn in a small spot on my back where DW didn't get enough lotion.

I strongly recommend the keys on the Gulf Coast of Florida if you are really considering a sunny, warm vacation. Let me know if you want more info

Carly, I hope you supplement with Vitamin K2 when you take your Vitamin D. Very important to keep calcium in our bones where it belongs.

Slow, it sounds to me as if you need to go to Pioppi. I am assuming you have seen/read The Pioppi diet?

Your work life exhausts me Carly, and I am only reading about it!

I have given up taking me Statins and saw my GP for the first time since this evening, I was expect a dressing down and a battle royal. But this happened. (Excuse the copy and past.)

Back from my GPs surgery.

He was brilliant and totally understood my point of view.

Accepted my concerns about taking drugs unnecessarily and possible future drug interaction problems. He agreed that there are currently conflicting points of view out there. Also agreed that the LDL is less of an issue than previously thought, especially as my Triglycerides are so low.

He has arranged for full bloodworks including Thyroid and Diabetes, although he was certain I didn't have those problems. He was a little surprised that I stopped them in July.
He did say that we should check again in a few months and that if 'we' felt I should go back on them he would change to a 'better' one. That's not happening, but still a fair comment.

He has also change the only other drug I am on to what he believes is a better one. My faith in the practice has definitely risen.

I am home and celebrating with a glass of wine.

Slow, it sounds to me as if you need to go to Pioppi. I am assuming you have seen/read The Pioppi diet?
Love this Kissa. I watched the Big Fat Fix last year, and April - May I was living off of tomatoes, olives, roasted veg and eggs - all drenched in good quality Italian olive oil I get from Aldi. The pains in my shoulders were gone. I was eating 3 tablespoons a day. I need to get back to that, but right now life is hectic. I think in January when things slow down again, I'll try to get back to that.

Hello - I am relatively new to JUDDD. I started it (after a quick read of the website) in March of 2016, lost 30 lbs over the course of 3 months and then decided to take a break for a few months. Well, it's been a year and a half and I recently decided to resume JUDDD. BTW I did manage to maintain the 30 lb weight loss! I still have 30 lbs to lose and I'm ready to do it.
I've been low carbing for a long time and I enjoy the low carb lifestyle. My issue is portion control. I have found that DDs are strangely easy for me because of the programmed way I do them--always the same foods, very little variety and very low carb. I recently bought the Johnson book and am enjoying learning the details of his discovery. I am also enjoying reading about all of your experiences here at LCF. So motivating!

That Pioppi sounds amazing, minus eggs drenched in olive oil

So far no DDs this week. But I did go to the gym and for a mile-long walk home afterwards today. I also worked out on Saturday.

I need to figure my stuff out. It's tough because I just re-started JUDDD after months of not really adhering consistently, and am also starting to go to the gym after YEARS of not doing anything. I don't know if I should do some moderate calorie thing for the time being until I get used to working out again. My main issue is that I want to be able to go the gym any day for the time being, not just on UDs. I don't know! So confused.

I know I said I wasn't going to post here, but ...

Kissa, that's fabulous about your doctor visit. Oh, and I've taken to saying your siggy in my head if the hungries come on a DD.

Bluebelle, agree with Kissa. I used to exercise on DDs and never had a problem.

Ha, ha, yes, Nilla, I sometimes forget what I wrote in my siggy.

Now that I do more fasting I know how true the healing part is. Dr Johnson was there before Jason Fung! And hunger really isn't an emergency is it? We all tend to snack too much.

I was delighted to see I was under 120 again this morning. I do like seeing the teens.
