Another day to enjoy

As you know I've been busy with my family here, but I keep checking in with you all.  It helps me stay focused, and I need to focus!
Just some random musings...
 I often let myself be the very last on the list when I'm with family...especially with my children/grandchildren. They don't ask for that, it's just the way I've always 'done it'. I have been struggling with weight issues for most of my life...gee, I wonder why?  I'm choosing not to do that this week-however, I didn't get a walk in yesterday. I am up early today, so I am planning on grabbing a quick walk this morning.  I have this food container in my fridge with some of my BFC foods. I might have gotten teased about the chia seeds. I often try not to bring attention to myself when I'm 'dieting' (I know it's not a diet, but a health plan) I think I've failed so often-that I'd just rather show up thinner/fitter, and then we can talk about it.  If you've dieted/lost/gained/dieted, etc...maybe you know what I'm talking about.  It's been my cycle for years!!!!
 Success (for me) is about planning: having good foods on hand, when/how to exercise, what are you going to do when you go out to eat, go on a vacation, or when your schedule changes, just the everyday stuff we all encounter. 
So for today, I plan on:
* Taking a walk this am
* Eating extra fiber
* Drink more water
* Eating berries/whip cream-while the rest eat another dessert
* Keep BFC'in
Have a blessed day-


  1. Hi Jeri!
    I can totally relate to the vicious cycle of dieting, losing, gaining, etc & then beathing ourselves up when we fail. I am convinced that losing weight is a mindset and if you truly have your head "on straight" & you make this a non negotiable goal, you will finish the race. This time around, I have made up my mind that nothing & nobody is gonna get in the way of my success! I think that blogging & surrounding myself with people with like gials has really helped keep me on track. Please feel free to visit/join my blog. I dont blog every day but I try to blog a few days a week. Somedays, Im just not inspired or just too tired to think. But we would all love to have you in our group!
    Wishing you great success this time around....your LAST time around!


    p.s sorry about the few typos. I type too fast & forget to check my work before posting. I need to work on that. lol

  3. HI Jeri,

    I have never dieted before the BFC. I do call it a diet cause I don't know what else to call it to other people. I do know that it worked for me cause I love all the stuff I get to eat.
    For instance if you don't like eggs and nuts and cheese, well chances are this might not work for you. This has to be they way you eat for the rest of your life. I know that NOW.
    YOu can do it! Have a great day :-)

  4. I know what you mean about not wanting to draw attention to yourself and wanting to show up thinner and then talk about it :) Especially since a lot of people find the bfc weird. I think that is because we are used to hearing about lower your calories or low-fat, but not low sugar. Just hang in there and you will get to where you want to be :)
