    It is a strange experience reading someone's journal all at once. (Have you discovered GayPanda? You will laugh until you cry.) When you said '298 pages of Sabine' I quailed. I can't imagine that much of my musings. But maybe I should go back and reread it, to see how I've changed. I know wineandcandy rereads her journal every year.
    Well, more like in a "girl, I have been THERE" kind of way (same thing with something Hanna posted)... the family issues and the weighing more than a man issues. Hurt my heart that someone else felt that way but also felt like my heart was reaching out to you at the same time. I made a 180 over the past 2 years and I wish I could package all of that up and give it away to everyone who needs it. Not the weighing more than a man part. That is still one cold hard truth for me. And then I think (I was thinking this yesterday as I was watering our new trees), that some of this "advice" I am referring to may only be truly received if it is arrived upon on an individual's own path - not in the form of advice from someone. I don't know. I have had a lot of AHA! moments in the form of quotes, so who knows?

    Being on SNAP is hard. I didn't realize we could afford the GFCF diet for my daughter until I read an article at the TACA (Talk About Curing Autism NOW) website about being GFCF on a budget/food stamps. They have a month-long meal plan, shopping list, etc. And voila. That is the best site I could ever refer parents whose kids have vax injuries to. It took away 66% of my DD's seizures. Grateful is the word.

    I will put GayPanda on my list. xo

    • Numbers post

      Haven't posted numbers in a while, so I thought I'd throw these up. The bolded numbers are my monthly weights since beginning JUDDD, the regular are weekly weights for this past month. All weights are post-Up Day.

      202.0 3/5
      195.0 3/30
      188.0 4/27
      185.0 5/25
      181.5 6/30
      176.5 7/28
      174.5 8/25

      174.0 9/8
      174.5 9/22
      168.5 9/28

      And here are the amounts I have gone down each month:
      7-7-3-3.5-5-2-6

      Lots-lots-little-little-lots-little-lots.

      No true stall in there, but some slow times. I think it really highlights that you have to hang in there. If I had let 3 pounds discourage me(Oh, no! I've stopped losing!) I would have missed a whole lot of good going on. Luckily, JUDDD seems to have changed my thinking about the scale number. I don't know if I could have used pure willpower to get me through with my old attitude.

      Also something to note: At no point have I reached the 2 pounds per week that a lot of people think of as the normal weight to lose per week. And yet, after 7 months, I am down 33.5 pounds. Nothing to sneeze at. I don't care if it is 'slow'.

      Also, two more friends noticed my weight loss yesterday. They were impressed. I was (outwardedly) modest, but exulting.

        • Sabine that is just outstanding!!! It gives me such hope!! Because I seem to be one of those slowwwwww losers. And you have accomplished this in a little over 7 months??? I am doing the happy dance for you!! (I need the exercise!! lol). I like looking at the numbers from a monthly perspective too. It seems more realistic.

          Big hugs for you girl!

          • Primalcajun- Happy dancing is the BEST exercise!

            MsSmith- JUDDD stands for Johnson's Up Day Down Day diet. It is Alternate Day Fasting.

            I stay low-carb primal, and eat whatever I want one day. Then the next day I eat up to 420 calories. Lather, rinse, repeat.

            Aside from the weight loss, the best benefit I have seen, is that it is MUCH easier for me to get back on plan after a slip. Instead of a bad meal(recent 'slip' - a large bag of almond m&ms) turning into a bad day/week/month because of a 'screw it' attitude, I get right back to it. This is HUGE for me.

            I've taken this as my mantra: I feel good on low-carb primal, and JUDDD helps me STAY on low-carb primal.

            It also has health benefits for healing/inflammation reduction/longevity due to activation of SIRT1 in our bodies.

            I love it! I started in March 2013, so once you get to that section you'll get all the info.

            One load of laundry done, games cleared away from yesterday, dishes underway.

            • I started April 1st switching between 4:3 and 5:2 and have lost 20 pounds. And that includes a glitch of 5 weeks (one where I went crazy and gained 9 pounds and the 4 to lose it back!). I like having a set day for my very low calorie days, and marvel that you have stuck to your plan so well, through all sorts of events and parties and such. Congrats.

              • I like the health benefits! Maybe I can do this when we get back from vacation. Thanks! From now on, I will try not to ask questions without searching your journal for the answers first. Sorry!

                    I have a girlfriend on Facebook from St. Louis who has a son with autism. He is low functioning. He was born with some issues that required immediate surgery so at birth he was given some vaccines to prevent infections. She said at 4 months you could tell something was wrong with him. She discovered later that he had autism and that it was likely the vax he was given at birth. He is 4 now. She recently put him on a gluten free, dairy free diet (in February, I think) and a heavy metals detoxing protocol. They're getting ready to start a parasite detox as well. He is talking now - not a lot, but he says things. He interacts now. He runs and plays with his siblings now. He's becoming a child and she's so glad, but still so very frustrated b/c it's taking so long to get Tucker back.

                    If you're interested in connecting with her, she has a page on Facebook called Taking Back Tucker. Tell her Jenn Tyler sent you and she'll likely let you join. I have no clue how hard it is to raise an autistic child, but I get glimpses of it when I talk to Amanda. I wish you luck with your child.

                    • hhhhmmmm. So maybe I need to investigate this JUDDD further! I will go back to march & read what you've posted. If it's got full blown fasting I wonder if I could do it with my thyroid issues. Not supposed to fast if you have adrenal issues or thyroid troubles. Off to go read (for 15 mins! I'm on a FL break!).

                        Ask away! 300 pages is a lot to search.

                        • DeMuralist- I love that 4:3 and 5:2 are working for you so well. I think they both indicate that our human bodies(in general) need a more natural situation(not having food available ALL the time).

                            Crying again here. I am so happy that he is making gains and so sad every time I hear/read that his has happened to another child/family. There is a new diagnosis every 11 minutes. It has to stop! We need to go back to the 1986 vaccine schedule and remove all traces of mercury from vaccines and stop giving vaccines containing mercury in the meantime. Mercury is not the only bad thing in vaccines, but it is a known neurotoxin, 2nd only to plutonium in toxicity. Aluminum (also a neurotoxin) is in them too, as is formaldehyde, MSG, eggs, fetal human/animal products, etc.

                            My daughter started having seizures following a specific vaccine and then later regressed drastically following more vaccines. No warnings from her ped. other than about skipping the pertussis vaccine. No adverse reaction claims made, no info about this given to me. She had met all her milestones and was thriving before. She was also mercury detoxed, much later in life than is preferable and most beneficial, but I pursued it as soon as I got the correct info and she got the right doctor. Your friend and her son are so fortunate to be undergoing these interventions at such an early age. In Spring 2011 my daughter began to be able to tell me when she is going to have a seizure, when she has a tummy ache, verbalize her wants and preferences, smile a lot more, laugh a lot more, and generally be about 10 x happier. She has a quality of life now, though she is severely impaired and will require 1 on 1 assistance 24/7 for the rest of her life.

                            I am not on FB. I hope she gets lots of support there and IRL. If she wants to communicate, maybe we could figure out another way. Sounds like she is definitely on the right track. Thank you for your kind words.

                              • Four loads of laundry done. Vegetables for tomorrow prepped. And I also know just what I have left for the last day of my SNAP challenge. Not a lot. I have $.94 left over. Maybe I'll splurge on a piece of fruit.

                                I'm very (forum) chatty today. Don't know why, but I've decided not to stress about the amount of time I am spending perusing and typing, and just enjoy it. I have the luxury of these quiet days at home- I need to revel in them.

                                Just so you don't think I am a complete slug, I have also swept, taken out the trash, and done half the dishes. Well, maybe a little more than half. Now to go strip the bed.
