Monday starting week 12: Belly Fat Cure

Hello, I am happy to say that starting this new 12th week on the BFC, my weight is down 2 more pounds from last week, and I even ate some popcorn at the movies yesterday. (Saw Date Night, it was very good). That makes a total of 28.5lbs total so far. Still got like a million more to go, well it seems like it anyway. Here are my measurements then and now.
weight then: 238lbs weight now: 209.5lbs
waist then: 42" waist now: 37" lost: 5"
(this is without sucking it in like you're supposed to)
hips then: 52" hips now: 45" lost: 7"

I see a big difference in the way I look when I'm in my underwear in the mirror. I don't know about you, but I am always weighing myself at night and in the morning. I need to be accountable for what I eat and I feel like I need to know if I screwed up or not right away instead of waiting 1 whole week. Also, I keep looking at myself in the mirror before I get dressed, turning sideways. Like I can see if I lost 1 more micro-inch.

I get very excited to see any progress, and I think it fuels me now. I don't feel like I am depriving myself anymore like I used to. I feel really good about this whole thing, and remember I told you that I have never ever ever tried to lose any weight at all. This is the first and only time. I always said "I am just gonna eat whatever I want". I thought I ate healthy if I ate an occasional salad or fruit. Boy was I wrong!

Thanks for listening. Please leave comments.

My thought for today: I guess psychologically we keep expecting to see that 4-9lbs come off each week. Ok look - so, we need to knock it off!! It's not gonna be that way! Shake it off and keep going!
Love to everybody!

Keep on BFC ' n :-)

  1. Thanks for your post about change in size. I've lost about 12 pounds and I also am not down a full size. I would guess that the fit of one's clothes depends on how one's weight is distributed.

    Although I haven't gone down a full size, my clothes fit much better and that makes me feel a lot more comfortable though not yet ecstatic.

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.
