Okay...deep breath... After lurking on these boards and being so inspired by the Judderers, I decided it might just be the right plan for me. I started yesterday, on an UD. Today was my first DD and it went fine. I've decided to keep a diary, as I think it'll help me stay on track. Planning on weighing every day and posting what I've eaten every day. So, Mon 15 Oct (starting day) 229.2 Tues 16 Oct (post UD) 231.4 (+2.2) +2.2 Lunch - 1 tin of chicken broth 128 Dinner - creamy mushroom pasta 338 (very very yummy! Would have it even on an up day, but prob 3 times as much in quantity lol!) Total - 466 I'm planning to do 3 x DD + 4 x UD and see how I get on with that. 500 cals on DDs and will try not counting on UDs. I'm going to try and eat 'normally' (whatever that is!) on UDs. I think the best plan for me is: Mon UD Tues DD Wed UD Thurs DD Fri UD Sat UD Sun DD I'm looking forward to dropping by some of the other diaries to say 'hi'!
