I'm still here...

Happy Thursday...I'm preparing for our youngest daughter and baby to come for a week's visit, seeing clients, and BFC'ing.  I did well yesterday, stayed within s/c and took 5 mi walk.
I've appreciate the notes I get of encouragment, and I've really like the group discussion board on FB. I think Rosalie might have started that.
I was thinking today how important it is to try new things on this plan-and also be aware of creating new menus that you can easily eat when you're at goal as well.  It's not just a few months or years in some cases and then go back to the same patterns that caused us to my case anyway, at an unhealthy weight.  I love my life and want to enjoy it with my family for as long as possible. For me, I know that includes eating healthy. I believe I'm moving in a good direction.
So far today...and I took a 5 mile walk in the mountains along a river...wish you were here to enjoy it with me.
Bfst: 2 eggs/few mushrooms/spinach sprinkle with parm 0/0
Lunch: Raw cauliflower & hummus , flatbread w/ avocado, turkey & cheese 3/2
...and if all goes well...this is how I'll finish my day
Snack: Celery & peanuts 2/1
Dinner: Whey protein shake w/ chia seeds and spinach. I know, I know it sounds crazy, but you can't taste the 1-2 oz of fresh spinach you put in it (it is an odd color though!), and 1 T cocoa pwd. 0/1


  1. Hi Jeri, Wow a 5 mile walk is great. I wish I could go with you - cause I would.
    I wish I could take credit for the facebook page, but it wasn't me. I have visited all the pages on facebook almost every day since I started the BFC. They are all great for support and ideas.
    The maintenance part, I have thought a lot about, and I know I just have to keep doing the same thing forever. :-)

  2. I agree with you, I love life and I want to enjoy it as long as possible and what we put into our bodies plays a big role in that. I think putting spinach into your protein drink is a great idea, my Mom does it all the time every little bit helps. Have a great day and wonderful time with your fam :)
