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

We are beautiful just the way we are....

Hello all,

I hope everyone had a great Belly Fat Cure Monday!!

I really do feel bad about saying how great the weather is over here in Southern California - but it is. I grew up in Michigan and have lived here since I was 22. In the beginning I remember having to put baby oil on my skin every day cause it was so dry. Well anyways - that's why I appreciate it over here SO MUCH!

I realized that maybe I should start posting my S/C values when I post my food, so I will from now on.

Kaj - and to all, report in once a week on your weigh-in day - what ever day that is, mine is on Monday for our weight loss progress.

Debbie  - I went to the Meet-up.com, and it looks like it's only for dating and single people. I am not sure my Hubby would like that too much LOL.

Sara - If you go back and read my earlier posts, and look at my weight loss progress - that happened to me many times. Maybe we might need to talk on the phone if you like. Are we friends on facebook? if so send me a message. You need to make sure you are getting enough fiber so you can go #2 every day. How many grain carbs are you eating a day? You might need to cut back 1. Make sure you get enough green veggies and lots of water.

Thank you everyone for all your lovely comments. I really appreciate it!

Tonight was supposed to be Family night at the rehab for my son. By the way he is an adult and 28 years old. He has screwed up many times before - but I let him know yesterday that he can always tell me the truth and I might get mad at him, but I will never turn my back on him or abandon him and I will always love him no matter what. I think he needs to hear that from someone.

So his Ex and I drove out to the Family night - it was supposed to start at 6pm. We got stuck on the 15 frwy behind a real bad accident and got there at 6:30 and late. They would not let us in - I told them about the accident and they said no anyways. I know my son was waiting for me and was probably disappointed. It was beyond my control but I feel like I let him down.

Today I ate:
breakfast; 2 oasis bread (toast) w/butter and peanut butter, 2 turkey bacon, 8 blackberries, coffee, blah, blah, blah - my vitamins, 2 pro-biotics and 2 Reslina. S-5/C-1

lunch; a salad at chipotles of lettuce, carnitas (pork), black beans, cheese, salsa (hot), guacamole. S-1/C-1

snack; some pork rinds 0/0

dinner; meatballs, 6 brussel sprouts, alfredo sauce, and rediwhip for desert. S-2/C-0

Pattie - It's funny that you blogged about wanting to feel pretty. I have blogged about that subject a few times.  I swear, no matter how skinny I get or feel - I still look at myself sometimes and feel that same feeling as before. Like there is more things to improve or fix. I know we all go thru that during our loss and I think it's normal and will just take a bit of time to realize that we are beautiful just the way we are.

Accept yourself with all, our lumps and wrinkles and sags and cottage cheese, We are Beautiful. Set a goal for yourselves and when you get to it - stick to it. Don't keep thinking that you need to get even smaller. Be happy with where we are. 

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to all. Please visit all my friends blogs and follow and support them as well.

My thought for the day:

The Life That is Waiting

The Life that is Waiting Positive QuotesWe must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. 

Keep on BFC 'n  :-)


  1. Hi, we can not control what happens when we leave our home. I am sure he will understand and forgive... u sound like a great mom to stick with your child thru thick and thin.sometimes us kids don't realize how good our parents are until after 27!!! When we are into adulthood. I am sure he loves and appreicates you more now than ever. Dont beat yourself up*** stay positive!! Good thoughts creates positive energy!! You not not only helping your son heal you are also helping us woman too! You are an inspiration to all of us woman who is battling our weight. Thank you for sharing!! Stay beautiful and positive!! Live love laugh!!!

  2. I my breakfast : ezkal: wrap 2 eggs 2 slice cheese and turkey -0/1
    Lunch:wrap turkey and cheese -0/1 snack: 1/2 grapefruit and blackberries. 13 / 1 ((( I believe)))) ... my weight is 266 ... my weight in is on Sunday. Haven't did my waist measurements yet. Can't find my measuring tape. Can't remember where I last put it. Lol I may have thrown it out the window the last time I measured my self!! Lol. Gym tonight !! Don't know yet what's for dinner. Any ideas!!! Ttyl!! Live love laugh!!

  3. How frustrating that they wouldn't let you in. I think sometimes it is hard to feel beautiful at any weigth at any age....but I'm working on feeling good about myself which is easier said than done. Have a great day :)

  4. Rosy, your son will understand that you tried to see him, so don't beat yourself up too bad about this. Sorry about the meet-up thing. My bad, it's meetup.com with no space line. Hope that works for ya. I know they have groups all over the USA. A friend of mine just moved back to Oregon and found a group she likes already from meetup.

    My weight up again today, I think it's because we are in the middle of painting our master bedroom and I have not been eating well after the long day of painting and moving furniture.

    Maybe we can talk on the phone sometime? I have free long distance so I could call you. anyways, how would we give our phone numbers out safely?


  5. Hi Rosalie. Sorry things didn't work out with visiting your son. I am surprised the facility was so rigid with their visitation time. I guess they have their rules for a reason. I hope your soon gets well there. I have a three sons, and one is 26.I can relate to how you always want to be there for them. Your son is doing the right thing be getting professional help in a rehab setting.
    Thanks again for always being there to help your BFC friends. I love your thought for the day. I copied that on my blog. Hope you don't mind. Imitation is the ultimate in flattery! I love motivational sayings and I keep ones I like in a book. Sometimes it's the little things that keep you goint! Take care!

  6. Thank you for continuing to inspire us all! I'm ordered the Oasis bread..can't wait to try it!!!

  7. Thanks for your comments on my blog Rosalie. I appreciate any advice you have to keep me on the right road (get it??) to reaching my goal.

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.
