Support one another.........

Hello to all of you BFC'rs out there,

First I want to start with What I ate:

breakfast; Quinoa (1 serving is 1/4 cup uncooked) w/ some onions, mushrooms, zuchinni, 1/2 pc of chicken, 2 scrambled eggs, a little salt and butter all in a bowl, 8 blackberries, coffee.

lunch; spinach salad, 1/2 pc chicken, feta cheese, bacon bits, balsamic dressing, some croutons.

snack; protein bar my nephew sells amway so I bought some, here is the link:  http://www.amway.com/Shop/Product/Product.aspx?itemNo=110536&pwsID=JeffZalenko

dinner; we went to Lucilles BBQ. I had blackened swordfish, greens, and broccoli, and 2 bites of hubby's biscuit. Woo that was good - I haven't had a biscuit since I started the BFC.
Some RediWhip and 2 squares of Lindt 85% dark chocolate.
Here is a picture of how much I eat. The bowl is 4" wide and 2" deep. You can judge by the size of the chocolate. 
breakfast; 2 eggs, 2 turkey bacon, 8 blackberries, 1 cup of cheesy grits from Lucille's from the night before. Yum!

lunch: small amt of the fish, greens and broccoli left over, and some Kimchee

snack; almonds

dinner; stir fry veggies w/ 7 meatballs, alfredo sauce, and RediWhip and 2 squares of Lindt 85% dark chocolate.

  • Every morning I take all my vitamins before I eat with a big glass of water. 
I use Clear Benefiber in my coffee every morning
I take a multi for women over 50
2 calcium w/vitamin D
1 fish oil
1 evening primrose oil
1 in morning and 1 at night of black cohash
2 probiotics - Natural Factors, acidopholus and bifidus 10 billion  (above)
2 Reslina = the link is on the home page (top left). It's Resveratrol and Spirulina (very healthy)

  • Right now I am watching the Biggest Loser. I usually don't watch this because there is always something else on. There was a guy on that won on a prior show. He showed them a dish to eat and guess what? It was Quinoa. How about that. Remember I saw it on Dr Oz show and really like it, but its very tiny. LOL
  • I really hope our group continues to grow. Tell all the fellow BFC 'rs out there that you know to come and join us. Tell them about the list of blogs below and follow and friend them. I have to tell you that I have been as successful as I have because of all the support I have gotten.It really DOES make a difference.
I don't have much else going on to tell you about. I am still on the job front. No luck yet - but I am not gonna give up. I have noticed that I am starting to lose my confidence. I saw something on the news that is what happens when you are looking for a while, But I 'm gonna keep going. BLAH!

I hope all of you have a GREAT, Great day!! Thanks for listening. Lots of love to you all. Please leave your comments.

My thought for the day:

Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. I love your new before & after photos! Love that smile, it says it all!

  2. As always you are kicking butt and taking names. You are awesome and I know a great job will turn up :)

  3. It truly is amazing how much we can eat as long as it falls within the guidelines. You are an inspiration! I was wondering where the heck your blog was for the day! I start looking for it in the early afternoon! I sure wish we could get some more people involved. It appears the facebook group I was accepted into is "lifeless". No postings:(

  4. Thanks for continuing to post -I read them every day. I just tried the Dukan Diet for two days and have lost 1#. Its really not an enjoyable way to eat - protein ONLY or protein/veggies on alternating days. I have been stuck and can not drop a # so I'm willng to try something different. I have alway stuck with the BFC but now I"m getting discouraged, I just want to drop 4-5#. Just had to vent.
    For the job hunt, have you considered going to a Temp Agency - that way you could be on call and try out a few postitions to see what you like.
    Well, I'm off to make my protein shake and get the day started.

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.
