Monday starting week 46: The Belly Fat Cure

Good Morning All,

I can't believe that I have been doing the Belly Fat Cure for 45 weeks now, That's almost a year. I still tell everyone that I meet about the BFC and how I have lost over 70lbs so far. I get so excited to say that out loud. Hubby still gets annoyed when I keep talking to absolute strangers all the time about this.But oh well. I can't help myself.

I feel SO GREAT!!

So, this morning my weight has seemed to have gone back up to 167.5, that's 1.5lbs up this past week. I am not upset about it. I have realized that in this later part of my diet this happens all the time. It's only 1.5lbs. Now if it was 5lbs maybe I would get worried.

Saturday I skipped all my carbs because I thought we were going to the movies, but that didn't happen. So that evening I was soooo hungry we went out to dinner. We went to AppleBee's. Love that place. First of all we ate a little late for me, around 7:30. I ate the best dinner I have had in a long time. I had steak it had some small shrimps on top with Parmesan cheese melted on top with broccoli and squash and it came with mashed potatoes. All I have to say is OMG!!! I was so hungry and I ate it all except for the potatoes (I had 4 tiny bites) and hubby had the rest. I also had 2 glasses of Cabernet Savingnon red wine. I was so happy and full and a bit tipsy. I don't drink much on the BFC.

Yesterday I also skipped my carbs and we did go to the movies and I had popcorn. When we got home it was dark, and just starting to rain. I had some Shitataki noodles w/ seeds of change pasta sauce and some zuchinni, mushrooms, hot sauce and cheese on top. Then after I had 2 squares of chocolate Lindt 85%, and later I had some decaf chai tea.

Later in the evening it started to storm real bad with lightening and thunder. The next thing I know Mandy our black dog was pacing so scared and the little one, Peaches was up on the bed. It sounded like it was just a mile away, the lightening. Well anyway I didn't get much sleep the past 5 nights. Tue, Wed, thur, hubby worked in the evening and I couldn't sleep well with him gone. Sat, Sun he was here but recovering from a cold and coughing and snorting and moving so much - not much sleep. So I think maybe that's why I gained back some weight, not sleeping well.

So this morning I decided to make myself some french toast to celebrate. I used this new bread I found at Henry's market called Oasis, sprouted flax seed bread, it has only 8carbs, 2 fiber, and 1sugar per slice. And I used Joseph's sugar free syrup, (you know the one that makes my tummy gurgle) and 2 slices of turkey bacon. and coffee, blah, blah, blah.

Well that's all for now. Please let me and the rest of us know how and if we can help you. Leave your comments and we will do our best. Don't be ashamed or embarrassed, cause we are all the same here. We are all you friends.

Thanks for listening. Love to all of my BFC friends.

My thought for the day:

Your Attitude is Your Choice

You always have a choice, even if it is only a choice of your attitude.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. I would be telling everyone too if I lost as much weight as you. :) I would be screaming it out loud to the world. hehe!!! You go right ahead because you have done a amazing job...I can't wait till I am at the point you are.

  2. I talk about the BFC too. It's hard not to when it works, and you feel so good. You just want to share the good news with others so they can feel good too! I am so happy for you Rosalie! And I hope I will someday get to where you are. How I would love to wear size 10 jeans again. Working on it everyday with the BFC! Wishing you the very best. Helen

  3. Hi Rosalie,
    Sounds like an awesome dinner.. yummy.. I have a question for you : do you know of many guys that do well on the BFC ? My husband has been doing this with me for the last 2-3 months and has only lost 2 pounds. He is discouraged and I feel bad for him.

  4. Hi Beechy, Maybe we can talk on the phone and discuss what he is eating?? My phone number is on my profile on facebook. Call me.

  5. I'm so glad you didn't get upset about your gain. You looked at this situation realistically and knew what was the most likely the culprit. That's what we all need to do.

  6. Every now and then steak taste so great! Right now I'm craving a big hamburger patty so I got some organic hamburger from Costco and I'm going to make it for dinner tonight. Yesterday my hubby and I ate lunch out. We ordered a Crab Sandwhich and it was so yummy, and it's made on thin slices of panini bread, crab mix with avocado and bacon, and a Ceaser salad on the side. I'm normally not big on crab, but this mix is now my favorite. I made dog biscuits over the weekend from a recipe I found on line. All my dogs love them. Maybe I will post it, it's healthy for them too! Have a great week Rosalie.

  7. It is so exciting to share the BFC with everyone. I know how you must feel losing so much weight. You made me hungry talking about that steak now I want some....lol I weighed in today and I am up 1 lb from last week..no biggie I will see lower numbers next week.

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.
