15th Week BFC Day 3

Hello friends, so much to say I'm not sure where to start. I guess I have to say thanks for the support, I chose not to eat the cake for me and not because I knew I shouldn't or to be able to tell everyone I didn't. Making the bfc a lifestyle has had some big challenges, mostly in the way I view food mostly food that is belly bad. In the beginning I knew beer was high in carb but I drank it anyway and a couple of times too much. I have allowed myself to indulge in cake at work. I think it's ok to have those things once in a while, but the problem was I noticed that one cheat would lead to another and I would justify all of it. Sound familiar to anyone?

I love the bfc community, being able to share and connect is the reason I am still doing the bfc, because there have been plenty of times I felt like nothing was happening. My hubby helps keep me grounded during my times of doubt. The weight is coming off slowly, but I think the lifestyle changes are the best. I avoid fake sugar, limit real sugar and chose better carbs in smaller portions.

Marjie, thank you for sharing you are such a sweetie, and I appreciate you checking up on me. Congrats to you for losing your muffin top and keepin it off. Reading the bfc blogs is a great way to keep your head in the game. When I first started the bfc I was looking for a blog from Jorge and that's how I stumbled upon Amber's blog..I found her to be more helpful than the bfc book and from her blog is how  I found the rest of the girls and was inspired to start my own blog.  Crazy about your daughter and the shampoo causing her rash, I tried the shampoo you are talking about several years ago and didn't like it because I felt it was getting rid of my natural highlights. Thank you for sharing, I never thought to look at shampoo as a source of facial skin problems.

Today was my second day of zumba, and it is growing on me, no wonder it is so popular. I downloaded the cardio party and I am excited to try that out...but the 20 min one is a realistic start for me. And thank you Helen, I didn't think it was gonna be ok to drink coffee so I guess I can wait until morning cardio is done. I am so proud of the example you are setting for all of us.

Tomorrow we leave for our trip to see hubby's best friend for his 30th bday. I am excited to see him and his wife and to just get out of town for the weekend. They have a whole foods so I am going to try some of the products I can't get here, and if I like them I will put in a big order at amazon. I want to try natures hollow preserves, joseph's cookies and clemmys...I am super excited for clemmys. I am going to take food so I can be on track with the bfc. I don't want to make a big deal out of what I am doing, but I do want to feel good about what I ate come monday morning. I am not looking to cheat because it was a special occasion. Anytime I have cheated for what I told myself was a special occasion has set me back a week. You know what I mean?

I told hubby we need to get some new pics this weekend to share, (he doesn't like this pic of him with his blemish on his forehead lol)  Well, I guess that's all for now...I hope everyone has a belly good weekend :)


  1. I know in doing this it is so much easier when we have all this support. I don't drink much since starting the BFC - only a glass of red wine once in a while. Sometimes at a party or bbq 1 shot of tequila.
    Can't wait to see your new pictures.
    Have a great weekend :-)

  2. We all should be doing this for ourselves to feel healthier, more confident, and stronger as an individual and feel good too. These are the reason I choose to stick with it no matter what. If we fall off, we jump right back on that is what is important. I admire you for cutting out all alcohol pretty much. I don't drink much but socially, but your doing so great Katie. The blogs are great. I love releasing my thoughts and listing my foods. If I can help one person I am happy. Its like a chain that will never stop. :) So your helping others and then they will help so on and so forth.

    Have a great weekend! I wanna see pics too!! Hope you find lots of good stuff at Whole Foods. :)

  3. Great blog post Katie! You always give me something to think about. I love the sense of community too. All of us helping each other makes ALL the difference. I just could not do it without my friends. Thank you for being one! ":^D

  4. Have a wonderful "Blessed" weekend:) Happy Easter!
    Monday is a new day....just remember that:)

  5. Hey Katie!!! Excellent Post!! I have missed visiting all of my blogging buddies and I promise to not be away so long again. Sounds like you are doing great!!! Have a wonderful trip and Happy Easter!!!
