I'm Not Dieting - I've Changed My Lifestyle

Thursday of week 40: The Belly Fat Cure

You know every day we are faced with many obstacles. When we are dieting, like we all are, that makes it all the harder. We have to learn how to handle these things as they come up.

Right now I feel like I am going thru a lot at home right now. I feel a lot of stress and sadness from many areas. I am trying to say it nicely without going into details. I feel like I am being attacked mentally. In the past - I probably would have just kept eating until I was sick. It never would have made me feel better.

I am mentioning this, because I am always honest with you. I always tell the truth in how I feel while doing the Belly Fat Cure. It is truly a test of will when this happens. But you know, I am different now. I don't want to eat just because I am having a hard life.

That's why I have been posting thoughts like - replace the negative with the positive and stuff like that. Look, part of our success will be in learning how to handle stuff as it comes along without wanting to stuff our faces like before.

This is not just for me - it's for all of us.

So - Here goes!

We are Team BFC Club, and our motto is: WE CAN DO THIS!!

There is nothing that we cannot learn to overcome!

Just because we are having a bad day, week, month or year -
Nothing will stop us from reaching our GOALS!!

Make this a priority!!

Thanks for listening. Love to all of my BFC friends. Please leave your comments.

My thought for the day:

Seven Ways to Have a Good Day

  1. Talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
  2. Look at the sunny side of everything.
  3. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best.
  4. Be as enthusiastic about success of others as you are about your own.
  5. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
  6. Give everyone a smile.
  7. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Oh my, you look just great!!! The biggest lesson i've learned on this woe is i too am not using food to stuff my emotions, good for you and thanks for keeping us positive with your thoughts!!

  2. Rosalie...how to i post my goal weight and my progress?

  3. Lisa just post it here and I will add it.

  4. I too have issues with emotions and food. Using food for comfort. Stuffing down my feelings by eating. Turning anger inward on myself by eating what I know I shouldn't. It takes real CONCIOUS effort, not to do these things. Food is not comfort, it is just food. No more, no less than that. So. Now, instead of eating when life is hard, I read, I write, I walk, I talk to a friend. I think POSITIVELY. I slow things down. I wait my emotions out. I tell myself things will be better tommorrow. I remind myself how far I have come, and I hang in there as best I can. Wishing you all the best. Helen

  5. I weigh myself every 2 weeks on Thursday, so today's weight was 166.9 ! Lost 1.1 lbs. My goal is 140lbs. It's slow loss but i'll take it!!! Thanks! Rosalie

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.
