    Hi there

    I haven't started JUDD yet but the girls on here have really inspired me to give it a shot so when I get back from NY in 3 weeks I'll be joining you on the JUDDD journey to get rid of NY excesses and the last few pesky pounds (had planned to do JUDDD after xmas with high protein between NY and xmas) but finding this forum so inspirational I can't wait to give it a go.

    Well done on your weightloss so far - you've done brilliantly.

    I can't wait to hear how you get on with it and will be lurking around the forum for the next couple of weeks until I become an official JUDDDerer

    Oh it's too weird to be looking forward to a food plan as much as I'm looking forward to giving JUDDD a go LOL

    had my first proper UD today. It was weird I kept picking things up then freaking out over the calories in them! Ended up with a sandwich from gregs as it had no calorie count on it! I found that even though I knew I could eat anything I was scared to. I found myself buying a chocolate bar because I felt I should make the most of my UD rather then actually wanting one.

    So here's my day so far:
    Br SF shake (216)
    Sn 2x Flyte bars (194) cuppa (25)
    Ln Greggs egg mayo sandwich
    Sn pear, 3 cracker (60)
    Dn Sweet and Sour made with quorn chicken and prawns, with quinoa

    thats so far lol! I don't know how many calories I've had today but it doesn't seem massive amounts. I must start watching the fat content of what I eat though!

    Well done on your choices.
    UDs do need a bit of getting used to after DDs. I always feel 'yay I can go for it' but when it comes around i dont want to spoil the hard work from the previous day.

    so DD today. feeling a bit headachey which isn't good and tired too but I have been to a management training day today which even though it was short it involved sitting down all day and that always makes me feel more tired than being on my feet all day.
    Tempted to have a bit of a snooze now!
    So here's my day so far:
    Plum (40)
    Shaper bar (99)
    French fries (82)

    planning dinner atm, I think it will involve prawns, might pop over to morrisons for some salad but I'm all snug in bed right now so I doubt that'll happen!

    soooooo glad today was an up day following what was possibly the worst day ever.
    So I went to this management training day yesterday and when I got home last night I was thinking about it all and realised I just don't care about the company I work for. All this management stuff was all abstract and pointless and means nothing in the real world yet everyone there was buying into it and I wasn't. I feel like I'm only doing my job for experience as its c**p pay and I don't really enjoy it and since they rejected me from the graduate programme (which I am sure is because the application website keeps messing up) I feel like I'm not going anywhere so I'm like 'whats the point?'
    So this makes sense I currently work as an assistant manager for a well known high street store. I had no experience but managed to get the job. At the time I was happy to work there get experience and apply for the graduate scheme or train in store to become a store manager and ok, so the pay isn't great but its not forever. I then read that the average graduate wage is £19,000 which is far more than what I earn which made me unhappy. After the training day yesterday I felt even worse because I realise that there is no support from the company and they things they expect from us are impossible to deliver as its all so abstract and meaningless in real life.

    This then started me on my current worry which is not having any money. I have a massive student debt and with what I earn I'm not likely to ever pay this off let alone save up for a wedding or house. To make matters worse my OH graduated with a masters over a year ago yet is still earning less than me working checkouts at morrrisons. I keep on at him to apply for jobs but he never makes any effort at all. This is stressing me out even more.

    I'm also mega stressed out about living in Leeds. I moved here to be with my OH but I'm from the south west and I went to uni in Liverpool so I don't have any friends in Leeds. I don't have any money to join an archery club (my sport of choice) or go to Liverpool to see my friends from uni. So I'm generally feeling really isolated at the moment. I have nothing in common with the people I work with (they are all at least 10 years older than me) so I feel like I have no friends. I'm getting really depressed sitting at home every night. We sometime go out with my boyfriends friends but this again makes me feel upset as I feel like I have no friends of my own. I'm a really sociable person so its really really getting me down.

    So last night I managed to have a bath and was in bed when my OH got home from work. I was generally feeling alright but then he told me he was going out this evening with a friend. This immediately made me really upset. I knew it meant another night of having to sit at home by myself without anyone to talk to whilst he went out. I didn't want to cause an argument so I decided to just try to go to sleep but already being stressed out meant I couldn't sleep at all. I felt really agitated and didn't want to sit still but I also had a really bad headache and was stressed and upset about everything. I then had a massive panic attack which really freaked my OH out.

    When he finally calmed me down I explained what was wrong and why everything was stressing me out. He told me he's scared of applying for jobs incase he fails so I've agreed to help him. I don't really know what to do though. I've applied for some jobs today and we've gone through his CV and he's applied for some jobs but I have no idea how to deal with this stress. I'm finding it difficult to sleep and I really do feel very isolated and its really putting a strain on our relationship.

    So as I said I really needed an UD today. It seems to be going ok (not had too much chocolate) but I'm sat at home by myself which isn't good.

    Aww big hug. :hug99:

    It's horrible being on your own in a new place. Do any of your boyfriends friends have girlfriends? Maybe you can have a little chat with one of them if they are nice. You'll be surprised how open people are once they know how you feel. Until you tell them they will just think that you are happy with the situation.

    And don't write of the people at work just because they are a bit older than you. One of my best friends at work was 12 years older than me. I never thought I would have anything in common with her, but I was so wrong.

    Why don't you invite your friends from uni up to visit you? If you can't go to them drag them up to you:p

    Hating work is something that most people can relate to. Unfortunately with the economy the way it is, the graduate jobs are slim on the ground. You may just have to hang on in there for a few months until things pick up.

    But don't give up. To beat the competition make sure your CV is the best you can make it, check it, check it again. And don't just rely on one CV, have different versions for different roles you are applying for. And make sure your covering letter is personal and not a generic "hi here is my CV". You probably know all this and are growling at the screen!!But I seem to have put my personnel hat on! sorry.

    Up days are great for when you need a bit of a boost.

    Good luck with you job & friend hunt.

    And you can always come on here and have a little chat.

    love Sanghi.

    yeah I know that things are pretty rubbish jobwise atm I guess I've just realised I can't stop looking just because I have a job. I was going to try to meet up with the girlfriend of the guy my OH has gone out with this evening but unfortunately she's busy. I did try and have a housewarming and invite all my mate from Liverpool but they are all pretty much as skint as I am. Its a bit difficult with people from work because I'm a manager so I don't feel comfortable getting really pally with people outside of work. That said the other people who are managers are really fantastic but have a lot of family commitments. I've been pretty positive today I am just so glad its a UD as I can eat some icecream now and not feel guilty!
