    Woke up at 2 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep, so got up at 3 and did a workout DVD. I'm down to a new low weight this morning of 175.4 and it feels great. Every little bit helps.

    So at the end of my first week of Juddd, I've lost 2.2 pounds (177.6 - 175.4). Not bad at all--it's more than I've lost doing anything else (in an equal amount of time) for the last couple of years, lol.

    Today so far:

    3:00 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon and 2 cal/mag chewables

    4:30 am: instant decaf coffee with 2T HWC

    6:00 am: 8 slices thin cut bacon

    11:30 am: 4 oz Polska Kielbasa; green shake: 1/2 avocado, spinach, 1/2 med banana

    4:30 pm: fresh mushrooms and duck breast w/skin sauteed in Kerrygold garlic herb butter

    5:30 pm: 2T cream cheese

      I'm am down a slight bit more in weight this morning which is surprising since I wasn't regular yesterday and I think what I ate was higher in sodium. I DID have more activity than is normal though...did 45 minutes of that workout DVD yesterday, and then I took my car to get a special smog check, but the car of the guy ahead of me took almost a full hour. During that time, I stood and paced, lol. Nice low level activity.

      So, today is a down day, so a very light menu:

      5:30 am: 1 large mug of decaf instant coffee (I'm out of coffee filters) with 2T HWC

      9:00 am: sample taste of Organic Pastures Raw Whole Milk at the Farmer's Market. Walk to/from/around the market - 40 minutes

      11:00 am: Green shake: spinach, 1/2 Haas avocado, 1/2 medium banana, filtered water

      4:00 pm: slices of Applegate roast beef with 2Tcream cheese

        Wow, down 1.2 pounds since yesterday and that was without BM for two days. Very happy! I ate a bit more than my daily allowance of calories yesterday, but it was not more than 600 calories. I was hungrier yesterday than I have been in a while, but mostly I just wanted to eat.

        Today is an up day:

        4:40 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon, 2 cal/mag chewables, 1 commuter mug of decaf+via Peppermint Mocha instant, with .5 % organic HWC and 2T Organic Pastures Grade A Cream

        7:00 am: 3 oz Polska Kielbasa w/1 packet Best Foods mayo (I know)

        9:00 am: small piece of homemade (not by me, lol) gluten free chocolate cake

        11:30 am: 4.5 oz 85% ground beef, 1/2 (minus 1 brown spot) Haas avocado

        5:00 pm: 3 oz polish sausage, mushrooms, broccoli sauteed in Kerrygold garlic herb butter; 1 square Lindt 90%

          Well, with no surprise, I am up one pound from yesterday's little carb fest.

          Today is a down day:

          4:40 am: 2 cal/mag chewables, 1 commuter mug of decaff coffee w/3T Organic Pastures Cream

          8:00 am: 2 hard boiled eggs with a THIN layer of mayo

          11:40 pm: 1-1/2 cups 365 Beef Broth; 1 T Kerrygold garlic herb butter; 1/2 cube boullion

          5:30 pm: 1 container Fage Full fat Greek yogurt

          I dug out my FitBit last night, charged it up and am wearing it today to capture my activity. I also found my BodyMediaBug and will charge it up tonight when I get home.

            I lost that pound of water weight so I'm back down to 174, and while settling on the weight the scale actually flashed into the 173s. It's been quite a few months since I've seen that, so it was exciting!!

            Today is an up day:

            4:45 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon; 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 cube Organic Pastures Raw Cheddar Cheese; 1 commuter mug of instant decaf coffee (ran out of coffee filters and can't find them anywhere locally so am waiting for my Amazon order) with 3T Organic Pastures Cream

            7:00 am: 3 oz Polska Kielbasa

            9:00 am: Republic of Tea Ginger Peach White Tea w/ 1/2T honey

            11:30 am: 4.5 oz ground beef; broccoli w/2 pats of butter -- my planned avocado was rotten

            4:30 pm: weird dinner: 1 oz uncured pepperoni, 1 oz organic Pastures raw cheddar; 2T crunchy almond butter and 2T cream cheese

              Uggg, woke up at 1:00 am, I think because my hip was hurting. That's an ongoing problem for the last couple of years. I stayed in bed until 2:00 am but was just too uncomfortable, so just got up and did a little cardio workout. I also woke up feeling pretty bloated...guess my weird dinner last night was just a little too weird, lol.

              Today is a down day, so kind of light on the food:

              4:15 am: 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 commuter mug of decaf brewed coffee on the way to work

              7:00 am: hard boiled large egg

              9:15 am: decaf tea w/ 1/2T honey

              [TC]: 2 hard boiled large eggs; maybe some chicken broth

              [TC]: Fage FF Greek Yogurt

                Double uggg, lol. Slept slighly more and slightly better than the previous night, but still woke up early...this morning around 2ish. Never did go back to sleep.

                But, I had great news when I stepped on the scale....down another little bit, so I'm at 173.4 this morning. That's about 9 pounds since starting my MFP journal--4 pounds in the last two weeks.

                Today is an up day and I'm really enjoying it so far, lol.

                4:10 am: 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 raw coconut macaroon; 1 commuter mug of brewed decaf coffee w/3T Organic Pastures Raw Grade A Cream

                7:00 am: 3 oz Polska Kielbasa

                8:50 am: 1 small Go Raw Banana Bread Flax Bar...totally surprised by a coworker who went out especially to buy me flowers and two of these little Go Raw bars as a thank you for helping her out early this morning!

                9:02 to 9:17 am: Walk the neighborhood around the office

                11:20 am: 4.5 oz 85% ground beef and 1 ounce of Organic Pastures Raw Cheddar Cheese; and if it's not any more rotten than it is now, about half a Haas avocado. The two halves have some brown spots so I figure sum total of the good parts will equal a half if it doesn't get worse in the next few hours.

                4:30 pm: Fage FF Greek yogurt; 1 square Lindt 90%

                  Down slightly more this morning....happy, happy! Today is a down day and I'm going to try to save most of my calories for later in the day.

                  4:00 am: Decaf coffee w/2T Organic Pastures Cream; 2 cal/mag chewables

                  8:30 am: Iced decaf coffee w/HWC; Sugar Free Vanilla syrup

                  Not sure what the rest of the day looks like...may buy something special for dinner when I'm out grocery shopping

                  4:00 pm: 4 oz chicken liver sauteed with mushrooms in 1T Kerrygold Garlic Herb butter

                    OMG OMG, I'm down another pound this morning! 172.2! Yay. Today is an up day, so normal eating. Up for today, a walk to the Farmer's Market and maybe a trip to the car dealership to buy a new car. I dunno. Maybe.

                    5:00 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon; 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 cup coffee with 4T Raw cream

                    7:00 am: 2 oz chicken liver; 1 Lindt 90 square

                    2:00 pm: 5 slices pepperoni & 2 oz Organic Pastures cheddar cheese; a few bites of an attempt at broccoli soup which turned out gross so I didn't eat it, but figure I had about 1 oz of cheese from that

                    Uggg, have that weird "thirsty" feeling in my mouth that drinking water doesn't seem to help. I guess pepperoni isn't such a great idea afterall.

                    5:45: chicken livers w/fresh mushrooms sauteed in Kerrygold garlic herb butter

                    8:00 pm: 2 slices thin precooked bacon

                      I suspected I would be up a bit this morning and I was. Only .4 pounds and I think it will go away quickly. This happened the last time I ate pepperoni as well, so I think I'll not eat it again. That weird "I'm thirsty" taste in my mouth also happened the last time I had it...one more reason to let it go.

                      Today is a down day:

                      4:15 am: 2 cal/mag chewables

                      5:00 am: Iced decaf coffee, with 2T Organic Pastures Cream and some sugar free liquid splenda

                      6:30 am: 1 large hard boiled w/salt

                      11:20 am: 2 large hard boiled eggs with a thin smear of mayo + salt

                      5:15 pm: 1 container Fage FF Greek Yogurt; 3 slices thin cut bacon

                      Also up today....trip to the bank to get my old pink slip out of my safe deposit box so I can take it to the car dealership, cuz I bought myself a car yesterday.

                        Uggg, another sleepless night. I've been awake mostly since midnight, though I did doze a little from 3-4 am. I had kind of a gnawing thing going on in my stomach. But, this morning I was down a pound from yesterday so I'm quite happy.

                        Today is an up day, YAY, lol:

                        4:45 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon; 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 commuter mug of brewed decaf coffee w/2T Organic Pastures cream

                        7:00 am: 3 oz polska kielbasa

                        11:30 am: 85% ground beef patty, 1.75 oz Organic Pastures Raw Cheddar, broccoli w/butter and 1 small avocado (or less, it looks like it has soft spots which may be rotten)

                        [TC]: Undecided for dinner

                        Up for today, I need to take my car in this morning to have the paint touched up in a couple of places and also drop off my pink slip for the old car.

                        **UPDATE: dropped off my car, but the salesman neglected to tell me that they would have my car until as late as Friday because they have to sub out the body work, lol. Sheeeshhh, the paint defect is so small, I'd be tempted to just try to repair it myself (if I knew what I was doing). I'm driving a hybrid loaner.

                          Alright, I don't know what's going on but I woke up at midnight again and could NOT get back to sleep. And, it's catching up to me because I don't feel good today. I almost stayed home, but decided to haul myself in because I can always leave early and I've got to take a little time off sometime this week to pick up my car. So, clearly, it wasn't the caffeine that was causing it as I haven't had any for 2 weeks. I'm sure there is a tiny bit in my decaf, but the point is I'm sleeping WORSE than I was when I was drinking regular coffee, lol.

                          Today is a down day, but I've already decided that I am going to eat more than the recommended calories. I'm not planning on going hog-wild, but am adding some fats, so that will drive up the calorie count some.

                          4:45 am: 2 cal/mag chewables; commuter cup of decaf coffee with 2T Organic Pastures Cream

                          7:00 am: 1 hard boiled egg w/ 1/2 packet mayo

                          11:30 am: 2 hard boiled eggs w/ 1 packet mayo and several romaine leaves

                          5:00 pm: Fage FF Greek Yogurt; 5 slices Wellshire Farms bacon

                            Finally got some sleep last night. Had to take a melatonin tablet about 30 minutes before bedtime, and I still woke up throughout the night, but at least I went back to sleep each time. I'll probably take one tonight as well just for good measure.

                            Today is an up day, so normal eating:

                            4:45 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon; 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 commuter mug of decaf brewed coffee w/ 2T Organic Pastures raw cream

                            7:00 am: 3 oz polska kielbasa w/mustard

                            11:40 am: 85% ground beef patty, 2 oz Organic Pastures raw cheddar cheese, 1/2 avocado, broccoli w/butter

                            5:10 pm: Not too healthy but 7 slices of thin cut bacon with 2T cream cheese and a bit later 2 turkey snack sticks

                              Slept okay, but woke up a lot heavier than yesterday...guess dinner choices weren't so great, lol.

                              Today is a down day:

                              4:45 am: 2 cal/mag chewables; 1 commuter mug of decaf with 2T Organic Pastures Cream

                              6:30 am: 1 large hardboiled egg, w/butter and salt

                              8:30 am: small clementine

                              11:00 am: 2 large hardboiled eggs w/1 packet mayo

                                Phew, lost those 2 pounds of water weight and am back down. So today is the start of my 3rd week of ADF and I've lost a total of 6.4 pounds, which is just slightly over a 2 pound loss per week. Not bad and definitely something that hasn't happened before with any other recent eating plan. It's very encouraging!

                                Today is the start of my 4th week and it's an up day.

                                5:30 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon, 2 cal/mag chewabes; 1 mug of decaf coffee with probably 3T of cream

                                8:30 am: Starbucks Iced Cafe Americano w/sugar free syrup (though it didn't taste like she put any in at all) and a splash of HWC

                                10:00 am: Green shake (spinach/spring greens, 1/2 avocado, almonds, 1/2 medium banana, couple drops of liquid stevia); 1/2 can of smoked oysters; 1 square Lindt 90%; 2 tiny squares Green & Black 85%

                                2:45 pm: 2 savory Turkey Sausage; 2 Classic Pork Sausage; 1 cup fresh mushrooms sauteed in 1T butter
