Thursday of Week 45: The Belly Fat Cure

Hello everyone,
I wish everyone a wonderful Belly Good Day! :-)

Well like I said yesterday, up and down. Today I am back down to 166lbs. And I even ate a cookie yesterday. SHHH! It was one of those pumpkin, oatmeal, walnut cookies left over from thanksgiving. It was in a baggie on the counter and just calling to me... So I ate 3/4 of it.

It's so funny how now I feel like I am so cheating when I eat 3/4 of a cookie. When before I would have ate 4 of them - no problem. I am trying to learn that now, at this stage where I am at on this journey, that it's OK to eat that 1 cookie once in a while. I can never go back to what I ate before. I know that.

I have been real strict on myself thru this whole time. I felt that I had to do that and not cheat so I could really focus on my diet. I always ate what ever I wanted and when ever I wanted before. So sticking to it 100%, I felt was the only way I could make it.

I am very lucky and grateful that I did stick to it. I am so happy to be down 72lbs so far. I feel that I look great (except for my jiggly, fat thighs). I am working on them. That is really the only part I feel I have left. I never want to be real skinny. I guess I never was really. I have been using some cellulite cream on the thighs. Who knows - maybe it will help along with the 3 miles a day that I walk.

Yesterday I ate:
breakfast; a smart and delicious wheat tortilla w/cheese, 2 eggs, 8 blackberries, 2 strips of turkey bacon, coffee, blah, blah blah.
lunch; a orowheat wheat thin bun w/ braunswieger, pepper jack cheese, mustard, and a spinach salad w/bacon bits, feta cheese, and creamy balsamic vinigarette dressing. (and the 3/4 of the cookie)
dinner; a hamburger pattie cut up in a bowl w/ broccoli, cauliflower, some seeds of change pasta sauce, parmasean cheese and hot sauce. mixed altogether.

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

My thought for the day:

It’s your life: Fill it up!

Life QuotesLife itself cannot give you joy, Unless you really will it; Life just gives your time and space, It is up to you to fill it.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Congrats and Welcome to the size 10 club! You look marvelous! Been STUCK at 165 seems like FOREVER! Will call you soon! I need your mentoring to get me out of this set weight. Been following BFC...perhaps I'm eating too much???Darlene

  2. I am glad you are not so hard on yourself anymore Rosalie. 3/4 of a cookie instead of 3-4 tells me you can really control your eating and that is such a big step. You have done a awesome job and I know you will continue your journey.

  3. Nice job on handling 3/4 of a cookie! Did your dogs get the 1/4? It's hard to resist those last bites when my doggies are staring up at me! They always get a little something only if it's not go to do them in. Being strict got you were you are, and I think I need to be a little more disciplined in this area. I'm not off the BFC, but I am not eating good regular meals, as I was before getting this damn flu, as it still lingers on...& I have no energy whatsoever.

  4. You do what you've got to do. It's great that you are testing how far you've come. You'll figure out where your boundaries are with food and then you'll really feel free and never feel like you're cheating. To me, "cheating" is simply going beyond your personal (realistic) boundary and what you know is too much for you. Good job!

  5. Thanks for all your blogs! They are a real big help! I am down 1 lb - 191!

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.
