FT Day 1

I think day 1 went relatively well, not perfect though & that's O.K. by me. I took the kids to a fall festival at our preschool's church. The kids had a blast. The dinner was a pig pickin' and the dinner plate came with pork, baked beans, coleslaw, hush puppies. I ate the pork with half of the coleslaw. The coleslaw was so NOT FT friendly as it contained carrots & definitely sugar. It was so sweet. Since this is a lifestyle & not a quick fix I was O.K. with eating some coleslaw. I rejoiced in the fact that I didn't consume hush puppies, baked beans, sweet tea, or any of the many delicious looking sweet treats common at every church function.

Then I came home and made these delicious FT approved belly good sweet treat. I did taste a little while I was making them. Then after they cooled I only ate one. I couldn't believe it was relatively easy to eat just one. Maybe there is something to this sugar is addictive thing. If they had contained sugar I would have probably eaten them all. Really.

It was REALLY DIFFICULT not to snack last night, but I didn't. Yay! Woo-hoo! Like Rosalie says you have to want weight loss really bad.  I wanted to stick with the plan more than I wanted to snack.

I'm actually excited about the fast track. I love that I can choose from a list of tracking required. I'm really not sure how long I'll do FT. I decided, instead of binging, if I'm really craving something I'll have it & just make sure I don't go over a s/c value of 5/2 for the meal.

Here's a video of the cutest little ballerina at fall festival, so happens to be my littlest one :).

Failure. Hope.

I keep thinking that everyday I'll blog about how great my day has been, how well I've done on the BFC.  Well that great day just never comes.  So I decided to try something else here...blogging 1st to help keep me accountable.  Over the past few days I've noticed once I cheat & it's always mid-afternoon, even one bite leads to more & more & more.  Then it's like low sugar doesn't even matter...once I have that little taste I can't get enough.  Like a friend of mine says, "one bite is too much & NEVER ENOUGH!" Also once I cheat I stop food journaling, like it doesn't matter if I don't write it down.  So today the goal is to journal every single bite!  I can do that!  I've also decided to fix BFC friendly shake about 3 pm today.  They always fill me up.

Well I'm off...going walking/running...need to get this day off to the right start.

Here's to hope & a great BFC day!

Back to the begining, once again

Here I am BFC, dedicated motivated & ready to begin again! I've been on & off of a vegan diet these past few months, more off than on though.  I may eat some veggie meals as I feel lead, but I'm not going to limit myself to those only.

So I'm off to lose 63 pounds one bite at a time.
