I want you all to know that I am in no way perfect - AT ALL!! I see many of you struggling to be healthy and trying to find the right fit for your way of eating and weight loss. I know that we all can't be the same, but I feel the Original BFC is the absolute most doable way for me to eat LONG TERM.
What ever program you are doing, What ever you are eating, just make sure first of all that you eating HEALTHY - and second of all that it is the way you can eat for the rest of your life...
Because whichever way you are eating to get you to lose the weight - is great - right?? But if you are doing something with out grains or carbs - then starting adding them back in - that might cause you to gain some weight back.
FOR ME, I eat the way I will eat forever...Its as easy as that for me. I still and always will have a MAD CRAZY Sweet tooth. I'm pretty sure that is why I was so big before and the fact that I ate junk food like it was coming out of my ears.
SO the fact that I have found a way to have a sweet every day and have it be a healthy one is awesome for me and that is why I share with all of you whatever I learn. Just in case you ARE like me.
You have to take control of your mind first - in order to take control of your body. I have said it many times that it is all in your head and its very true.
I will NEVER eat the way I did before or I will look the way I did before. That is all I have to remember in my head every day.
Yesterday for breakfast I had the Oatmeal-protein pancakes again with berries and turkey bacon. I used 1/4 cup of rolled oats, let soak for a few min in 1/4 of USAM, 1 scoop of strawberry protein powder and 2 eggs. Was very good.
My weight usually bounces between 145-150 which I very happy at this size. I never want to get smaller than 145 at my age of 54 and height of 5'7". I realize that I will never wear a bikini. I have a little bit of loose skin below my belly button on my lower tummy - kind of looks like a balloon that let the air out. Not real bad - just not bikini worthy and I am OK with that. Ladies the loose skin will NEVER go away when you are as big as I was for as long as I was - just the fat. I just want you to know what to expect.
Hubby is working nights for many days so after he left for dinner I had a spinach salad and a bowl of the left over turkey chili. For desert I was kind of bad and had a chocolate-cheesecake muffin, 1 protein bite and a little rediwhip.
I have found I always do best with carbs with my breakfast and lunch and not dinner. Breakfast this morning was 2 Oasis toast with butter and my homemade Peanut butter which was so GOOOOD BTW, berries and a egg white omelete with baby spinach and turkey sausage crumbles and goat cheese.
This is PurpleRosy signing off...
