I Made My GOAL!!!

Hello My Friends,

I wanted to share with you all that as of today, August 20, 2011, I have finally reached my goal of 150lbs. I got so excited that I called my 33 yr old daughter who lives in Michigan and she was the first one I told. I almost cried and she told me how proud of me she was that I had that much will power and did this.

I want to thank Dawn for sharing that coconut bread recipe with all of us. Since I first tried it, I have been eating it at least once or twice a day and I think that has helped me lose those last 4lbs. Really I think it helped cause it is filling and 2 slices is only like 8 carbs and it feels like eating 2 slices of regular bread or a tortilla.

So thanks Dawn :-)

Yesterday I made a Spinach loaf w/a frozen bag of spinach, 1 zuchinni shredded, a little bit of yellow onion, a few mushrooms cut up in little pcs, garlic, salt, about 7 eggs I think, and some mozzarella cheese, mixed all together and baked in a loaf pan on a cookie sheet (it makes a mess) @ 350 for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Slice into 12 slices and it was so good!!! I put some Parmesan cheese on top and some canned chicken and ate 3 slices for dinner. It was very good. S-1/C-0

This morning for breakfast I had 2 slices of coconut bread w/Nature's Hollow on top and 2 eggs w/cheese, 1/2 avocado and some berries, and my coffee w/truvia, clear Benefiber, powdered cream, and cinnamon.  S-5/C-1

I don't know what I am doing today, Hubby is sleeping right now. He's been working a lot night shift the past few days and comes home at 7am. He goes back in tonight at 6pm and won't be home till 7am in the morning again.

I have to drive his daughter to LAX Airport tonight at 9pm. She is going to Singapore for a dancing thing. Just go to YouTube and type in Knicole Haggins, that will pull up a on of her videos. She is really good.

Well that's it for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend and always remember WWRD.

  2. W00t Rosie! That is so awesome!! I was really wondering about the new bread affecting your weight, but I guess that answers that question. I bought some unsweetened coconut flakes and flour at Whole Foods this week and wanted to make a things with them.

  3. Rosalie I am so happy for you.You deserve this because you worked hard and never gave up. Hugs from me to you on this special day.xoxo

  4. This is a momentous accomplishment!!! I am "proud" to know you! You are a true champion of the endless weight loss game!
    I guess I might have to try the coconut bread again, adding another egg you say?
    Keep up the good work and firm encouragement!
    It's Rosie Day!!!

  5. Congrats, Rosalie! You are such an inspiration! I might need to make me some of that coconut bread! :) Have a fabulous weekend.....It sounds like it's off to a great start!

  6. That is wonderful Rosalie! If your determination was able to push you to this goal, think of all the other things you can accomplish with this same determination!! You are a HUGE inspiration to me.

  7. Rosalie, I am SO happy for you!! It has been wonderful watching your journey and celebrating your success with you. You look amazing and I'm sure you feel amazing too!!

  8. Congrats on reaching THE GOAL!!!! You are certainly inspiring to us newbies who are experiencing all those things you blogged about in your first two months of BFC. Thanks for all you do! JayPea & EssPea

  9. Congrats Rosie! What an accomplishment! Thank you for sharing your life with all of us and your many comments and suggestions to help others. When we look at your journey, we can take encouragement when things are going so slow!
    A product you might like: Joseph's Flax, Oat bran, and Whole Wheat Pita's (Wal Mart) 8 carbs each, 0 sugar, 4 fiber. So thin you can roll your eggs in the whole thing like a tortilla. Delicious!
    Keep up the good work and thanks for helping all of us.

    Take Care-

  13. WHOOO HOOO!!!!! I am so happy for you, when I first started the bfc and found your blog I read all your old posts and I am so glad that you have reached the goal you set for yourself. :) :) :)

  14. YAY! Oh my gosh so happy for you! I recently saw this quote on a plaque and it has been in my head. I do not have a blog so maybe you might want to put it on yours one day. ALL women need to see it….the quote is:

    "don't believe everything you think"

    We women never think we are good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, young enough, smooth enough, THIN enough…etc. Just because we think these things it does not make them true! WE all need to be reminded of that.….Rosy you did it! Job well done. Now that is a truth you can believe! M

  15. GREAT JOB ROSALIE!! WOO HOOO! Thank you for trying the coconut bread, I am glad that it has helped you too! I was afraid to share the recipe at first, because it is such a different sort of bread but it has helped me a ton as well.

    I *think* it's time for a new photo, what do you say? Although I really like your sexy dress one up there... ;)

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.
