the FAT FOOD Demon

Hello All,

I really want to tell you how much your support means to me. Its so nice to come on here and see so many nice comments. On days like today I could really use a friend.

Do you ever have those kind of life's (not days) where no matter what you do - no mater how good of a person you try to be - it always seems like you are being punished for something you did in a past life??

I must have bee a horrible person in my last one cause I just always seem to get the shitty end of everything. All I ever want is to just be happy - and I guess that will never be in my cards. That's all I'm gonna say. I don't want to get to personal. It's not like anyone (including me) can ever do anything to change anything anyways.

I would really just love to talk-talk-talk about it, but its best not to.
I like to let people know that I am just a regular person. And being a regular person - I have managed to not let the FAT FOOD Demon get to me anymore. I don't need to stuff food in my face anymore and think it's gonna make me feel better.

I know now that's not true.
I picture him looking like this
or maybe like this.
 Whatever YOUR Fat Food Demon looks like, kick him to the curb. We don't need him. We are much better w/o him. And OH-Yeah - he's a HIM.

I have managed to lose 90lbs and NOTHING will ever get me back to this again!!
That's the reason that I never feel the need to eat bad or cheat. Do you see that person? Do you even recognize that person? Cause I don't.

Now this is the real ME!
Here's what I ate today so far.
Almond-Flaxseed pancakes. Oh how I missed Josephs. I got some yesterday on the way home in Pasadena at Whole Foods. And yeah-my tummy rummbled happily most of the day.

I went out back to finish the weed pulling around 9:30am, and finished by 11:40 and came in and made lunch.
Sorry I started eating it and forgot to take the picture. Cauliflower crust pizza and a Grape Zevia - which was GREAT!! Love grape!

The girls and I went to our 2.5 mile walk at 3:30. I was very windy and cold w/black clouds overhead like it was gonna rain but it didn't so I put on a light jacket and scarf. I ate 2 squares of 99% dark chocolate whole I was walking. It's OK but I prefer the 86%.

Don't know what for dinner? Probably my usual favorite since I am alone tonight.

Thanks for listening and putting up with me.

My thought for the day:

Don’t Cry

"Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened." Dr. Seuss

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. So sorry things are going crappy! I hope the walk helped a little bit. Going for a walk usually makes me feel better. I Love the Grape AND Orange Zevia. So glad you told me about the orange. I didn't love those cookie and cream think thin bars.....Yuck! I saw that you had one the other day, but you didn't say how they tasted. What did you think of the flavor you tried?

    1. I tied the toffe one and it was chewy but OK I guess

  2. {{{HUGS}}} I'm sorry you're going through a hard time right now.

  3. ...very sorry you're going through a rough patch. You just keep plugging along--no matter what. Do you know how much hope that gives me?
    (I like grape soda too)

  4. My heart goes out to you. Please remember that your blogging community adores & appreciates you. Some sayings that usually help me make it through: 1)Don't sweat the small stuff. Everything is small stuff. and 2) Life is 10% what happens & 90% how you react to it. I'm not sure how helpful those will be but keep that beautiful & inspiring head up.

  5. I'm so impressed that you have conquered your food demon and I love the pics you posted of what 'it' could look like, lol. Your personal pictures are amazing...you look fantastic. I hope your world shines a bit brighter tomorrow and that you find some happiness in your day. I have a feeling you will :)!

  6. Rosalie...I am bummed that you are bummed:( Is there anything I can do to help? Lend an ear? I used to be really good at that. I wish only the best for you. You are an amazing woman, know that!

  7. So sorry to hear things aren't going well for you. You are an amazing person & just by this blog you are doing some much good for others! I'm sending you good wishes & my prayers that all good things come your way! Thanks for showing us even in difficult times, food is not the answer! Mary b

  8. Keep your chin up and don't let the turkeys get you down. (I know, that shows my age.) ~melody in oregon~

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.
