Jolinarr is JUDDDing AGAIN!

Ok! Day 1 again!

Quick history - Towards the end of 2008, hubby and I ordered the Alternate Day Dieting book, and we loved it! For awhile there we did UDDD faithfully!! Guess what? WE lost weight!! Woohoo! We loved it! We got busy with life though and quick. We found ourselves having more and more UDs and before we knew it, there were no more DDs! Yikes!! Good news, is that I lost 15lbs and hubby lost 20lbs. This was almost 1 year ago... Good news again, we have hardly gained anything back!!! Hubby might have gained a couple back, and Ive only gained a couple back... I think Ive gained about 3lbs back. (But for me, I have been working out a lot with weights and I know some of that is muscle weight, and plus for some reason I retain water like a sponge! I can't figure out why I do that!)..... Sooo anyway, this diet works great for us!!!!

My plans.... (which Ive already stated in another post, and some of my plans are not the same as hubby! LOL)

~Tons of water
~JUDDing of course! M,W,F are DDs, Thurs is a Med day (800-1000 cals) and Sat, Sun are UDs.
~1-2 miles most days. (I wanna do this every day, but Im just not sure... I gain muscle when I do it and then I feel like Im not losing! I know, Im a slave to my scales! :()
~lots of Green tea! This helps a lot on DDs....

Ok... So thats the plan!

Day 1 again is today!!! I will post back later on to let yall know how Ive done! :)

:welcome:to both of you, Wow DD looking good.
Can I ask what light bread you get? Bread is my downfall but it is normally about 100 calories a slice for hovis.
Hey there!!!

We use the Sunbeam light whole wheat bread... It has 40 calories a slice! :) For us it is great because we also love our bread! :) Hubby has a different bread he uses on his UDs though! he he :D I stick to the Sunbeam Light on UDs and DDs. :)

Thank you. I'll have to have a look next time I go shopping. Can you buy it in the supermarket or is it a health food shop product?
S: 14st6lb G: 10st0lb
Don't think we get that here Jelly, Jolinarr is in the US. But you can get Nimble or WW bread, only around 50 cals a slice. Or even the little half loaves of Hovis or Kigsmill, the slices are smaller so about 55 cals a slice :) I often have some with a soup :)

That's a great dd Jolinarr, keep it up :D
