Those Food Bullies GRRR.....

Hello to all of my BFC friends,

Yesterday I woke up and ate breakfast of:
2 french toast w/Oasis bread, Joseph's sugar free syrup, 3 turkey bacon, and some raspberries, and blueberries, coffee, blah, blah, blah.  S-5/C-1

After that my tummy gurgled almost all day because of the Malytol in the syrup. I know it's gonna do that but I usually have the french toast once a week anyway. I love it and its worth the one day of gurgleyness.

Then I cleaned the whole house, 3 bathrooms, vacuumed upstairs and down, dusted, mopped and shampooed the carpet in the living room AGAIN. I am still trying to get that smell out of there - so If I have to do it once a week for life, So be it.

My son called me and came over for a few hours, and we stopped at Chipotle and I had a salad for lunch. S-2/C-1

After I dropped him off at the bus terminal I went for my daily walk. The first round I always take my 2 dogs and then I go myself the other 3 times. This time I walked -jogged-walked-jogged. It was a little more difficult than just the power walking I usually do. 3.23 miles

Came back and ate a spinach salad, and some buffalo wings for dinner. S-0/C-0

I know why some people just can't seem to stick with the Belly Fat Cure, or why they all fall off. It's those Damn Food Bullies. Everyone we know turns into one.

Once we start to look good, or people start noticing that we lost weight - they all try to tell you that you look good now, You can eat what ever you want. They say: you don't have to diet anymore.

You get to the weekend or a special event and those bullies say: Oh just this one time won't hurt. This is So and-So's birthday. Oh come on... This is (blah, blah, blah holiday)..

The other day when Maria, Lisa and I were at the Arboretum, and we went to the cafe to eat, and I was eating tuna on lettuce w/water and they were eating burgers, fries, and cokes, Maria said: You don't have soda anymore?? You should now. Don't lose any more weight..

I know it is hard to keep fighting those Food Bullies for the rest of your life. I just look down at myself and say to myself: Do you want that bad for you food, or do you want to keep looking like this????
I choose to look like this.

This morning I woke up 2 lbs heavier. I think it was from the walk-jogging. Yeah that was it LOL! I'm not gonna let that get me down or make me cheat by feeling bad. I just keep doing what I am doing.

So If I can do this....So Can YOU!!

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to everyone. Don't forget to visit my friends blogs on the list below. And don't be shy to leave comments or questions.

My thought for the day:

Brand New Ending

Brand New Ending Positive QuoteThough no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Rosalie, if I had to bet, I'd bet on the salty movie popcorn as the reason for your 2 pound gain. Drink lots of water and you will lose that right away. :)

    I think Food Bullies are a BIG problem why people don't stick with this plan. It's hard to stay off sugar and lower in carbs day in day out, especially when the people around you aren't doing it AND when it's a holiday/special occasion.

    Have a great Sunday!

  2. Man food bullies are all over, good for you sticking to your guns The bfc is more of a lifestyle not a diet, it's about being healthy not just skinny. Have a great day :)

  3. I got used to the food bully type when I quit drinking alcohol. I swear I got more grief then, than I do now for not eating sweets.
    Bring 'em on, Bring 'em on!!!

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.
