I don't think it's fair...

Hi Everybody,

Well for some reason none of you could figure out my picture thingy before. I put this really cool gadget with tabs, so all you had to do was click on the tabs to see the after pictures. But you gals couldn't figure it out so TADA! I put the before and after pics back up. It really is amazing to see the difference side by side.

I must have gone to 6 stores today looking for those Clemmy O's and the unsweetened So Delicious ice cream. Nothing. Darlene told me that they have them at the Ralph's in Brea. Which is about 40 min away in no traffic. I am trying to not have to do that - I don't want them to melt by the time I get them home.

That would be funny right?? I go thru all that Southern California traffic, finally get some, then get home and they are all mush........ Well I guess I could bring a little cooler and some blue ice thingy's. We'll see.

I have really been enjoying my evening walks. I walk just under 3.5 miles every night. It makes me feel great! I am like a lot of you and have no gumpshion to exercise at all. But the power walks I just love. I get to take my 2 besties for the first lap, then put them back home and go 3 more times by myself. I get to see and talk to tons of neighbors that I would have never seen otherwise.  The dogs get to socialize and that is really healthy for them. We meet new doggie friends for them all the time. The 3 of us really look forward to our nightly walk.

Wednesday I ate;
breakfast; 2 oasis toast, 1 w/butter and josephs sugar free peanut butter, the other w/cream cheese and natures hollow sugar free preserves, 2 turkey bacon, 2 eggs w/mushrooms and cheese, 4 of ea. blackberries and raspberries, coffee, blah, blah, blah.  S-5/C-1
lunch; spinach salad w/feta cheese, bacon bits, Amies sugar free dressing, a pita pizza made w/SaraLee wheat pita, seeds of change pasta sauce, turkey pepperoni, and cheese and 1 square of Ghiradelis midnight revere chocolate.  S-2/C-1
snack; walnuts and cheese 0/0
dinner; salmon, asparagus, and the chia pudding (on recipe page).  S-1/C-1
Thursday I ate:
breakfast; 2 eggs, w/mushrooms, cheese, sauted baby spinach, all in a omelete, w/ 1/2 avocado, cottage cheese, 4 ea. blackberries and raspberries, coffee, blah, blah, blah.  S-6/C-0 ( went over a bit on my sugar)
lunch; smart and delicious wheat tortilla w/2 slices of pepper jack cheese, 2 turkey bacon, 2 slices of turkey, a little humus and mustard and baby spinach - some veggie straws w/sour cream.  S-3/C-2
this was real good!

snack; celery and joseph's sugar free peanut butter 0/0
dinner; meatballs, broccoli, alfredo sauce. and some clemmy's w/RediWhip on top for desert.  S-3/C-2

I was tell hubby today that I don't think it's fair that I have to diet for the rest of my life in order to look like this and everyone else gets to eat all the good stuff. I was watching a commercial for cereal. well -- just a passing thought. I know some of you feel that way at times right??

Well I am never looking like my before picture again!! No matter what  have to do from now on.

Join me people!! Who wants to be happy and miserable all at the same time?? Can I get a Whoop! Whoop! HAHA.

Well thanks for listening. Love and hugs to all of you fellow BFC 'rs. Please support my list of friends BFC blogs below. Beth has a blog and is added to the list now too. Support is the main key to this!!

This is PurpleRosy signing off....

My thought for the day:

Fresh Perspective

Form the habit of making decisions when your spirit is fresh. To let dark moods lead you is like choosing cowards to command your armies.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Hi Rosie. Well actually if you look around, most people are overweight, so they shouldn't really have been eating all the good food. I love to people watch on the beach, and believe me, most people need to lose that belly and more! So Whoop Whoop!!1 XOXO Have a great weekend. Packing up the pups and heading out of town! Oh, and I did know how the piture thingy worked. I like it the way you have it now though!

  2. Hey Rosalie - I loved your tabs! I put some on my blog too! Are you telling me that no one sees them, and I should just take them off?hrm.

    I'm in the same boat with you and the Clemmy's. If I want to buy some, the closest Rosaeur's is about 45 minutes away. I don't know if it's worth it. Maybe I should request it at my local store..

    I agree with Pattie, Rosalie! Most people eat the way they want, but they are overweight or obese! Also, We ARE eating 'the good food!' The sugar just gives me a belly ache now. I bet if you ate some you would feel the same too.

    My weigh in day was yesterday - update your sidebar to 133.6, please!


  3. Rosalie;

    The coconut bread is 1/0 for a one ounce portion. The whole loaf of bread is right around 16 ounces. My slices are usually around 1/2 ounce each.

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.
