She was right...

Hello BFC'ers:
So you know how I was was kinda whinning on Monday morning that I was up 2 lbs?  Rosalie was right-it's gone, and it took another one with it, and 1 more inch gone in the wasit.

Just another lesson is patience.

11 lbs lost in 3 mos...not that impressive.  But I've learned a lot, and my tummy looks way better.  So cheers to another day. I'm going to have a repeat of my lipid panel, and I'm curious to know of the changes that are taking place-I'll let you know how that goes.

  Here's my food diary for yesterday:

Bfst.- None (that almost never happens!)
Lunch- Flat bread cracker, 1/4 avocado, roasted chicken...green smoothie: almond milk, kale, raspberries(mixed with ice, water, little Stevia and blended)
Snack: Cauliflower & hummus...few pistachios during the day.( Just FYI: Trader Joe's has these Thai chili & lemon grass pistachios that are delicious)
Dinner: Spinach & Arugula salad w/ (6) count them (6) raspberries , roasted chicken & 2 T sunflower seeds...made a quick dressing of lemon juice & olive oil
Totals: S/5 - C/6

Do any of you miss eating an abundance of fruit like I do-how's that been for you?


  1. I actually haven't missed the fruit too much. But I do let myself have a piece here and there. I do buy fruit for the boys, so it's around. I just make sure I measure an appropriate portion and eat it with something, like apple with cheese or peanut butter or today I ate a slice of canteloupe ! wrapped with a slice of ham. Sometimes I cut up an apricot and put it on my oatmeal. But I always make sure my meal doesn't go over 5 when I do that (sometimes it accidentally goes up to 6 or 7, but don't tell Rosy. JK Wink) At any rate, as long as I get a little fruit every now and again, I'm good.

  2. Yes I miss fruit, and I think about it a lot at the grocery store. Whoo Hoo on your weight loss, 11 lbs is awesome :) Have a great day.

  3. I think eleven pounds in three months is pretty good. I've only lost 25lbs in six months. It's slow going, but I think we really are changing the way our bodies look and the way we feel. I don't miss the fruit that much for some reason. Maybe watermelon a bit this summer.
