Monday of week 8: Belly Fat Cure

Well today is Monday and weigh-in day for most of us. I did not go down and I did not go up either. So I guess that ok. But I am gettin ready to start my monthly and that makes my weight always go up, so maybe by next week it will go down. You know even my stretch pants are getting loose on my now. That's a good feeling.

I really want the weight to come off faster like many of you do too. But like I said before, I guess the weight is not that easy to come off for us big girls. Thats ok - I know you all feel as great as I do!!

I really don't have a thought for the day: Just remember that you are not alone in your quest - I am with you. And I hope my blog gives you some kind of support. Please leave comments.

Keep on BFC ' n  : )


  1. Hi,
    Thank you for your Blog. i have experienced so much of what you wrote! I decided not to do the 6 wk menu program, i never got responses from JC facebook, and my weight loss is terribly slow or if i lose weight, it doesn't stay off. maybe i am still eating too many carbs. i am 53 and this extra 30 lbs is SO bumming me out!

  2. You are doing great with your losses! It seems they are coming in big spurts for you. Keep up the good work!

  3. I just wanted to post a comment to let everyone know how proud I am of this lovely lady! She is my mother :o) Doesn't she look too young to be a mother of a 32 year old?? I can vouch for the fact that my mother has NEVER dieted and I was pretty sure she never would. She is the most beautiful woman in the world at any size but my main concern has always been her health. You have no idea how happy I am that she is taking steps toward living a healthier life. ***I couldn't be more proud of you and I love you very much mom!!! :o)

  4. Amber,
    Do you write everything down and keep track of your s/c 's all the time?

  5. Hi Julie,

    I usually just keep track of stuff in my head. I don't write it down, but I make sure that I never go ever. Friend me on Facebook and we can chat about it.

  6. My "weekly weigh-in day” is Thursday and tomorrow morning will be 11 weeks. However, I weigh myself everyday (except Saturday, but everyday is the ideal) and I take an average for the week. I then compare one week's average with the next. Weight fluctuates day to day, so weighing daily gives me a better picture. While in proactive weight-loss mode, whatever lowest weigh-in I get is the weight I consider myself to be at even if the next day weigh-in shows a half pound or one pound gain. The idea is to keep going and to reach lower lows. This daily weighing method is from the book “The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet.” This method neutralizes the dreaded and anxiety-filled “everything is ‘weighing on the weekly weigh-in’ syndrome” that I used to witness at Weight Watchers meetings. With this method, the significance of any one weigh-in – including the "weekly weigh-in day” – is very much reduced because each day is only a slice of the picture whose role is to contribute to an average instead of a referendum on your weight loss efforts. If you then look at – and especially if you put your data on a chart – the progression of your weekly average-derived loses will be much smoother. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
