Hello friends I hope everyone is having a nice holiday weekend...I wish I was chillin at Pattie's beach house :) Thank you Pattie for sharing your pics with us. Today was a great day we had a bbq at my in-laws. I thought I was doing good food wise, but my tummy tells me I had too much sugar :( For appetizers I had some chips and dip, celery and cucumbers...dinner: three ribs which had a little bbq sauce which was probably too much sugar, salmon, a little bit of fresh corn and potato salad....and two corona. Sometimes when I try to eat good and my tummy hurts and lets me know that I ate bfc bad I get frustrated...I used to eat stuff like that all the time and never felt bad. I also used to be regular all the time, and now I have to purpose to get extra fiber in, and if I eat too much sugar I have tummy pain and # 2 trouble. Sometimes the bfc is very frustrating, and it feels like it would be easier to eat all the "healthy" high sugar food I used to. Jorge makes the bfc out to be this super easy thing, but it can be hard especially when you think you are doing really good and tummy trouble lets you know that you are not.
On the other hand I feel good today I wore a cute halter top that I bought last year but never wore because I didn't feel good in it. My clothes fit, and I have lost around 10 lbs, I don't know for sure what I weigh now because I haven't weighed myself recently. The weight I have lost is the 10-15 lbs I have struggled with for the past several years.
I've been thinking a lot about some things Pattie said, people don't really want to hear about low sugar better carb. They don't want to hear that everything they know isn't quite right...especially that high sugar fruits contribute to belly fat. I think it's sad that we live in a time that there is so much sugar in everything, and it's harder to eat healthier than to eat quick processed food. I was trying to tell my mother-in-law today how sugar is bad for cholesterol, I wasn't explaining it very well so I will have to bring the book over to share with her.
Well, I guess that's all for now. Despite my venting I really believe low sugar, better carb is a good lifestyle. What is best is usually the hardest, and anything worth having is worth working for. I guess that's why I am apart of the bfc blog community so that I can get better at this low sugar lifestyle. To anyone who is having a hard time trying to stick to the bfc and figure this whole thing out you are not alone. Making big changes like the bfc is hard and takes time, friends please share so we can help support each other.
