Lets do the NEW Page...

Hi my Friends,

Yesterday was a beautiful day over here in Sunny Southern California, 65 degrees. But today on the other had it is around 50 and has been raining all morning so far. Oh well I guess that song is wrong.

My breakfast yesterday;
a carb chopper tortilla w/cheese, turkey bacon, berries, 1/2 avocado and a omelet made w/sauted baby spinach and feta cheese.
Here's how I do the omelet;
I saute what ever veggies in the pan first w/ EVOO. In this case I only used baby spinach, when it was wilted I added in the pan 2 scrambled eggs, cooked on medium heat until it was 3/4 way coked and then slowly and carefully flipped it over added some feta cheese and folded in half. That's it.

Lunch; Cauliflower crust pizzas for me and hubby.
out of the oven
I made the crust like usual on Parchment paper but I added some cayenne pepper and chopped up jalapenos (from the jar) in the crust. I love to do it this way, it makes it Zingy.
Then I added some seeds of change-romagna 3 cheese pasta sauce, mozzerella cheese, turkey pepperoni and mushrooms.
Then I went outside and cleaned up some stuff in the yard and then took my babies for a walk.

tuna fish, olive oil mayo, shredded cheddar cheese, celery, 1/2 avocado and pickle cut up, and of course bacon bits and baby spinach . Good Salad.
My desert was tea and the last 2 lemon coconut flour muffins w/ natures hollow on top.

I eat a bit more now than I did while I was losing because I don't want to lose any more weight. I like my size the way I am. I would not have eaten those muffins before while I was losing.

SO for anyone who would like to do my suggestion from yesterday:
To do the page with Before-during-and after photos
I think this will be great inspiration for any new people so they know they are not alone.
Email me your photos w/age, starting and current weight, and a little line about yourself.
I need some suggestions on what to call the page...

Today Hubby and I were supposed to go to our old neighbors house for their 4th son's 1 year birthday party. It said rain or shine but it RAININ DUDE!! So we will see.

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to you all.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

My thought for the day:

When In Haste

When in haste, rest in the present. Take a deep breath and come back to here and now. 

Keep on BFC  'n :-)


  1. I made the cauliflower pizza crusts this past week. I didn't think they were too bad! 3 and 4 yo didn't know the difference, 6 yo was NOT impressed, hubby...not so much either! Darn!15 yo ate them without complaint, but he'll eat anything lol. Next I'm going to try the almond flour crusts, hopefully that will win them over! :) Hope you have a great day! There is a beautiful full rainbow out in Corona right now..

  2. Hmmmm! I never thought about adding the jalapenos to the crust. I just put them on top of my pizza and yum! Hope you have a great weekend. Stay dry! :)

  3. That pizza looks amazing. I need some time to make myself some of these things. I am making some chicken soup right now. But I'm too pooped to do anything else. Tomorrow I'll make some coconut bread. I really need some of that! Big hugs to you from me. Don't complain about the rain....we got 3 inches of snow this morning!

  4. Wow I am a new follower of your blog and am so excited. I did the BFC two years ago and then fell off the wagon about a year ago. I am two weeks into my new weight loss journey and after reading your blog it has inspired me to believe that I can keep it off this time. I have read some of your posts at the very beginning of your journey and it is nice to see that someone so successful started off with some of the same difficulties I did. Thank You for this great blog!!!

    1. I'm with you on that Elspeth, I did the same and went back to Rosalie's previous post from the beginning and got inspired and fired up, Rosalie is so awesome she also talked with me on the phone and it was very encouraging, we talked Wednesday I started Thursday and today I'm down 4lbs! We can do this and Rosalie is right there with us.

  5. So for my breakfast today, I sauteed some leftover steak/mushrooms... poured in a couple scrambled eggs, simmered it til the eggs set then dumped shredded cheese on top. And I had an ezekiel english muffin with it. So basically a count of 0/2. That's it, and found myself wondering "What would Rosy have done with this". It was fairly tasty, but sort of boring nonetheless. So I came back to see this breakfast pic of yours and thot... I could have had my avocado, could have added my spinach to the frittata... couda wouda shouda.. :)) So Rosy, you GOTTA keep posting your meals and ideas like this. It helps a lot!

  6. I'll have to dig up some "before" photos from just regular photos that I have. I never did an "official" photo when I started. Like most of us, I tended to avoid the camera a lot.

  7. Hey Rosie! I just made some of the coconut muffins into cheesy biscuits and they are quite good. I made your basic cocnut bread recipe (minus the stevia) and added a little cayenne (1/8 tsp), chili powder (1/4 tsp) and garlic salt (1/4 to 1/2 tsp) and then some cheese (about a cup). I baked it like normal in the little square (Walmart) muffin tin and they are really good and taste more like a biscuit. Yum! BTW, I KNOW I don't have before photos because I don't like pictures (even when I'm thin) and I shredded any picture that I didn't like :)

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.
