Sunday of week 46: The Belly Fat Cure

Hello to all of my BFC friends,

I have gained back 1 of the lbs that I lost. I knew that would happen, since my weight always goes up and down so much. I am 164 which is 74lbs for 2 days now. Which is great to me!!

Well I had a busy day yesterday. We went to the movies and saw the Tourist and as usual we snuck into another movie and saw Narnia. Both were very good. I did have popcorn like I always do. Then when we got out we went to the Best Buy in Fullerton. Hubby is friends with the manager and wanted to get a new laptop. He said he could get a discount from him. Then went out to eat and home by 9:30pm.

I am in the process of getting ready to go to Vegas again. I am going on Thursday for a whole week. My 2 brothers who live in Michigan are coming out and bringing 3 of their kids with them. I am really looking forward to seeing them, especially since I have lost 75lbs since the last time they saw me. Remember my sister is getting married on Saturday the 18th. My step-mom's sister is flying in from El Slavador and her friend and daughter is coming form Texas.

So have you counted all the extra people yet?
Brothers and kids:    5
me:                          1
the sister & friend s: 3
So that's 9 extra people, My dads house is a very small 3 bedroom. My other sister has a 2 bedroom apartment and lives kind of far from Dad. So we will have to split up everyone between the 2 places and commute. Blah.... I will not sleep for a week. And OMG what the heck am I gonna eat?? I have been very nervous about all of this stuff.

Well yesterday I ate: 2 slices of that Oasis, low carb, sprouted flax seed bread w/butter and natures hollow preserves, 2 eggs, 2 turkey bacon, and coffee, blah, blah, blah.
lunch: 3 slices of turkey w/cheese and mustard, and spinach leaves rolled up.
Popcorn at the movies.
dinner: we went to The Yard House resturant, and I had a seared ahi tuna cesar salad and water.

Listen, I know I am complaining an a little worried about next week, but its just my nature. I am more afraid of maybe not eating enough carbs, cause I'm afraid that the tortillas and bread & stuff that I will buy and bring with me - they will eat it all and I will have none. So then I will just wind up eating meat and veggies for a week.
We will SEE!!

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

My thought for the day:

Be a Do-er Not a Critic

Not a Critic Positive QuoteA non-doer is very often a critic-that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It’s easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. If you are bringing food or buying BFC food for the trip, would you be comfortable saying that the food is for your special diet? That way you won't have to worry about others eating your food. I did this when I spent a week with my sister and her husband. They were fine with it, and that way I had one meal a day that for sure was BFC approved. I did it for breakfast which is the key for me to the the rest of my day. And then I just kind of winged it for all of the other meals during that time. We had a great time and I don't fhink I gained at all. If anything, I lost weight because it was an active vacation. Wishing you the very best. Helen

  2. Whatever ends ups happening, have a wonderful time. I second Helen's recommendation to point out that those particular foods are for you. If they are reasonable people, and I'm assuming they are, they'll understand, and actually be encouraging. Remember, they'll be reacting to the new you that they haven't seen yet. I'm sure they'll be completely supportive.

  3. I third Helen's and Minichick's recommendation to speak up and point out that these foods are for your special weight loss plan, and put it all in a brown paper sack, and not a see through one. Also stick it in the back of the fridge too, or get a cheap styrofoam cooler and put it in the room on ice. That ice last for days. This will be a great test to see what you've learned over the year, and how creative you can be. Just say NO! Above all else, have fun with your family, and don't sweat the small stuff!

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.
