Oh Well - Life Goes On...

Hello Everyone,

Well yesterday I managed to keep myself real busy to take my mind off the house thing.
My breakfast yesterday, oasis toast w/ butter and adam's peanut butter, some blueberries, and some eggs w/mushrooms spinach and cheese.

Did some paperwork, laundry up and down the stairs - ditto-ditto-ditto. Then I started packing more stuff, then I carried all the stuff I had packed before and all the pictures I took off the walls and carried everything downstairs to the living room, so it would be easier for later. Oh yeah - mowed the front and back yard.
My lunch yesterday, I tried to make a tuna noodle casserole w/shirataki noodles, canned tuna, mayo, celery and some green olives w/jalapenos inside cut up.

Dinner; I was so tired I just made some wings under the broiler and some broccoli and 6 brussel sprouts.

Absolutely no sleep last night.
Breakfast this morning was a flaxseed muffin w/blueberries, and turkey bacon.

I waited for the loan person to let us know what is going on. I think she has been stringing us along ever since last Thursday when she said the underwriter was asking for so many things. I recognize the brush off when I am getting it.

Every time she was supposed to call us back or if I tried to call her (got voicemail) - then sent a text, and she would text back and say I'll call you in an hour, never happened. I'm  in a meeting, I'm at the doctors.

Well anyways she was supposed to let us know yes or no by 11 this morning. I texted her twice and and finally by 2:30 I was sent a text NO. They are passing on the loan at this time. We are trying to do a FHA for only 3% dwn. And because of the last house we sold at a short sale is what is messing us up. So now Hubby is trying to see if we put 20% dwn can we still get it. If not I have no F-ING Idea what the H-E-double hockey sticks we are going to do.

So now you see why I think she knew since last week that we are not gonna get it and was just avoiding us? Hubby says - why would she do that? She will get paid if it goes thru. Oh - she's probably busy you know...

So Hubby is going early in the morning up north to help his sister move. He will be there maybe until Sunday - I'm not sure.

Well I hope you all had a good day - and no matter what is going on - You can still eat good and healthy.

Thanks for listening to me whine today. Big hugs for me from you today LOL.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

My thought for the day:

Treasures of Life

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Yes, big hugs! Sorry you are struggling. I completely understand. :(Things will work out. Positive thoughts coming your way.

  2. :/
    That means I'm really sorry for how hard things are right now.
    Blessings to you and your family

  3. So sorry to hear about your loan Rosalie :(. I hope things get better..this economy is so tough. Thank you so much for speaking with me today. It was very helpful and I am going to approach bfc with a new determination now.

  4. Well, that sucks! Just remember that everything always works out in the end! That may sound trite, but really, it does! Maybe something bad is up with that house and Karma is protecting you!!!! Things WILL turn out, eventually! This is coming from someone who had a really crappy day! :)

  5. Sorry Rosalie. I want to tell you I'm sure it will work out in the end, but I know that isn't helping you right now. Sending love, hugs and postivie good wishes your way. Keep a positive attitude if you can

  6. I'm sorry that you had a bad day and the loan is causing stress. Hopefully all of your dreams will come true! You are so good about not stress eating! That is amazing and quite the accomplishment.

  7. {{{HUGS}}}

    Thank you for being a good example to of us handling stress in a non-food way.

    So, is hubby going to ask about the 20% down, or was he just wondering that to himself?

  8. Those loan people are ridiculous! Why not tell you right away instead of leaving you hanging like that? Hopefully the 20% down will do the trick, or maybe try a different loan company. Life sure isn't easy sometimes. I'm really hoping it all works out!

  9. Sending you good thoughts for a good turn out on everything...Hugs! and support.

  10. I'm with Kay! congratulations on not letting your stress affect your food choices! If it were me (and it has been!) I would be in the drive thru at dairy queen ordering up a large frozen hot chocolate and slurping it up in a parking lot somewhere!! you, as always, are an inspiration! Hang in there!! everything really will work out in the end, it always does. much love to you!!

  11. Sending positive thoughts your way Rosalie.. stuff like that just sucks but all part of it I guess. YUCK! Hugs to you girl... When one door slams shut, it just leaves room for another to open up. Sometimes things like this turn out to be a blessing disguise, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating while it's happening.

    Hey, I finally broke 200 and have been fluctuating between 197-195 for a couple weeks.. going very slowly but better than nothing. I would have posted that on the FB group page but still not sure if Amber has made it totally private yet. Hugs and love!

  12. Hi Rosalie! I agree with everyone that you are a great example of avoiding the "stress eating" pitfall. Sorry that the loan process has been stressful. Praying things will turn around in your favor soon! Love to you - Kim

  13. Oh geez. I'm so sorry! I get calls at work from people in that situation all the time and it's always the same story-- they can't get the bank to talk to them. I don't know why they do that!

    I hope everything works out quickly for you guys!

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.
