My name is Anne and I am planning to start JUDDD just after the New Year. I have been on MFP for over a year. In total, with the help of WW and MFP, so far I have lost 40 lbs. I still have 20 to 25 I would like to lose. I haven't lost much over the past year on MFP, but I have been able to maintain my weight which I consider a victory in itself. I am going to try JUDDD just to shake up the routine and to break my plateau. I am also hoping that it helps curb my cravings which have been increasing over the past 6 months, probably due to my age. I turned 50 last year and hormones are now in play. LOL I also have an underactive thyroid for which I have been taking meds for since I was 30. I do exercise 6 days a week, usually elliptical or bike. I intend to continue the aerobic exercise on my UP days, but I was wondering if it would be wise to ease back a bit on my DOWN days. I have been wanted to start weight training with free weights over this winter. I was wondering if it might be a good idea to do my aerobic on the UP days and do weights on the DOWN days.
I would love to know what you think of that plan and if you have any tips or suggestions. I am looking forward to starting.
I just thought I'd let you know that I stuck with it.
Week 1 - 10lb loss
Week 2 - 4lb loss
Im happy with that.
A few struggles to stay within my cals on DDS otherwise as STONE in a fortnight with pudding and cream every Up day. YAH this works for me.
What are thoughts on keeping the up days the amount the calculator says? I'm trying it but I'm scared it's too much!
