Nice job, marlene!

Glad you had a good evening, sum!so what are these California wraps that you've been having lately?

They are lettuce leaves filled with ham, turkey, tomato, avocado and tiny bit of ranch dressing. They are quite filling and south beach approved.

BTW, I love your new avi; you always have the best avis!

Starting slowly but moving in the right direction. Have done sit-ups 2 days in a row and while not on plan yet, thinking more about food choices. Learning a lot from the comments here, and find that posting is a very good motivator. Weight was the same this morning.....will need to get that moving asap.

haggis posting here is a very good motivator, I agree. Even at my busiest, I try to pop in for at least a check in. My experience has been that when I go away for good, it's because I've thrown in the towel. Don't want to ever do that again...

Started at 166.4 yesterday (I don't weigh in on most DownDays)

Today is a DownDay so I will be eating very simply/minimally today.

Breakfast:
Coffee with soy milk
Supplements
Psyllium husks drink

Lunch:
Hard boiled egg
Vegetable broth

Supper:
Egg beaters omelette 1/3 cup
Vegetable broth

I know it seems like too little but the point of JUDDD/IF is to alternate days of near-fasting with high calorie days. It's a kind of calorie cycling. I can look forward to a higher calorie day tomorrow!

Exercise:
Bosu balance squats
Weights - arms/shoulders
10 minute abs video
Walking the dog tonight, 2 miles ~ with weights

Default Starting IF tomorrow!

Greetings, All! I hope it isn't too late to join in on this IF challenge. With Valentine's Day coming up as well as a wedding in six months, I'm super motivated to lose the 25 I've packed on in the last five years. IF sounds like a good way to go about it---and sounds maintainable as well!
