I have the day off today for a 3 day weekend. My weight is good and I re-cooperated from last weekend's 2 nights out to dinner in about 3 days. All I have to do now is just keep eating the same way that I always have to stay HERE - where I am now.
I know many of the people that started with me 4 years ago on the BFC, have strayed off and can't seem to do it for some reason, or they gain the weight back. They have tried so many different things and some even wind up - right BACK here on the BFC.
For ME, this is the simplest, healthiest, and easiest way to eat. WHY oh WHY would I ever change or go back to the way I ate before?
Once you start eating healthy like this, you just simply keep eating this way forever. THAT'S IT!
I have always allowed that 1-3 bite rule that I gave myself right from the beginning. That means no matter WHERE I am, or Who I am with, I ALWAYS eat healthy but that once in a while time when we go out to eat, or at a gathering, or holiday, I pick 1 thing that I really love and eat 1-3 bites - then STOP.
That's how I have been able to get to taste stuff I used to LOVE and not feel deprived. Try it - it works, then just stick to eating healthy - YOU CAN DO IT!!!
Saturday Hubby and I went to the shelter to look for a playmate for Peaches AGAIN! Him and I have been bumping heads a bit on this subject. He is picking dogs that might be too young or need more training or attention all day that I just can't give now that I am working.
I am looking for a calm - good - potty trained dog, with a sweet - get a long with ANYBODY kind of personality like my Mandy had and Peaches has now. Peaches loves anybody, all kids and dogs. They on the other hand growl and snap at her - from the shelters sometimes. She NEVER snaps back - EVER.
She is the Perfect dog!! And so was Mandy and that is why it has been so hard for me. I cry for hours sometimes because I ONLY want MANDY - not those other dogs! I miss her face and personality SO MUCH!!
Both of my girls sitting in the same chair. (which they are not supposed to do) BUSTED!
Yesterday (Sunday) we went to a meet and greet with Greyhounds... I have never seen such big dogs - with tiny BeetleJuice heads - as my daughter said.. They are around 80 lbs and almost as big as me. IDK, by the way they describe them, they seem like having a toddler around that needs special attention. Not sold.
As of right now - I just don't want to look anymore - it just makes my CRY and CRY for my Mandy...Her face as she looked at me while she took her last breath... Oh geeze - here I go again...
Gonna go make some treats now. I plan on making this morning:
cashew-butter-bread but I will use Almonds instead.
OK Have a nice day.
This is PurpleRosy signing off...
Keep on BFC ' n :-)
