After Effects...

Good Morning Friends,

I hope you all had a nice day yesterday what ever you did. Christmas eve night Hubby and I went over to Maria's niece Ana and her husband Cesar's house. Another cousin Cindy and her boyfriend, Maria and Lisa were there. We had a nice very nice time.

I wound up eating a homemade tamale with salsa, a small pc of baked yam, broccoli and a small pc of pork, a very small pc of cake and about 3 small glasses of Red wine. That makes 2 nights in a row of wine for me and - The After effects of too much and YEAH my weight went up.

Ever since I lost all this weight and eat healthy now, I NEVER eat carbs at night anymore. I only eat them at breakfast and lunch so even though that tamale and wine was awesome, I felt it in the morning. My weight was up to 152 - Yikes!

So yesterday (Christmas) morning breakfast and lunch was with no carbs.
 A turkey patty, 1/4 avocado, egg whites with spinach and cheese and a few berries.

Lunch I ate late around 2pm. Shirataki noodles, chicken, broccoli, and alfredo sauce.
Hubby stayed home with me until about 2 and then he left early to work the night shift and stopped by his moms on the way. I chose to stay home. For my snack I ate 2 protein bites and a little bit of clemmys around 2ish after he left and then took the 3 furry girls for a walk.

Later on around 7pm I got hungry again and ate a pc of cheese and some almonds.

Breakfast this morning was a pc of turkey Hubby brought home for me, eggs, berries and Oasis toast 1 with butter and peanut butter and the other with butter and the last of my chocolate-hazelnut-butter.
I just put some hazelnuts in the oven to roast so I can make some more later on. I really love that stuff. My weight was down to 150 this morning so just a few more to get back off. If you are anything like me, my weight fluctuates between 5 lbs. I go between 145-150. I feel us women have to allow some room because of the up and down, hormones-whatever. I am 5'7" so 145-150 is perfect for me because I NEVER want to look too skinny. I want to look healthy.

Well we still have New Years and then my 54th birthday on the 3rd to go.

Whatever you ate the past few days - just shake it off and move on and keep eating healthy. Don't let that get in the way of YOUR weight loss goal.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. It is 5:22 and I am just now feeling like I'm not going to barf! I had planned to be bad yesterday, so I didn't disappoint myself, but I felt awful this morning. Ugh!!! Tomorrow is a new day! I'm glad that you had an OK time and we are through the Holiday and ready for the New Year.

  2. I drank red wine for only the second time since March of 2012 (I had two glasses two different nights). No after effects for me. I didn't lose anything but I don't seem to have gained anything either. I also indulged in some awesome wheat free/sugar free holiday treats I made (chocolate raspberry thumbprints, gingerbread bites with vanilla cheesecake center, pumpkin pie). My weight seems to fluctuate a few pounds no matter what. Nice to know all this holiday indulge hasn't made me gain. Glad the holidays are over though and looking forward to getting back to routines and cleaner eating in the New Year.

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.
