Keeping it fresh!

Hello everyone. Well today wss weigh in day, and like I suspected I am up a pound. I'm not going to stress because I know why and stressing isn't going to change anything. I missed last weeks weigh in because I was away. Anyway..... Just keep calm and carry on! I hope everyone else is having a good week.

I love hearing about all the new recipes and ideas from everyone. I am going to try the Chia seed pudding real soon. I love poached eggs and put the chia seeds on them and it adds a delicious crunch, and some much needed fuber. Please keep posting your meal ideas and new products that you find. I think it is helpful for all of us.

There is another blog site that I follow and it is  Ginas Skinny Recipes . Gina has some great recipes. She lists all the nutritional values, even sugar, which I found many recipes leave out. She lists the weight watcher points, so I guess she is a follower of that plan.  I haven't made anything from her site, but I looked through some of the recipes and many are low carb and low sugar and made with ingredients that would be allowed on the BFC.

Speaking of weight watchers, and as a former weight watcher, I can say that their new plan has changed and seems to lean more towards the watching the carbs and sugar. My mom has lost over 40 pounds and kept if off for over 4 years doing weight watchers. She said things like the sandwich thins used to have one point and now they are two, but other things like mayo and sour cream have gone down in points. Seems they also are making you think twice about the carbs and realizing that the fats might not be the real problem. I think we will see a trend towards that in the future. Low fat and fat free, will give way to low sugar and lower carb.

That's all for today. Until next time.

  1. I sure hope stores and restaurants start to make more low sugar, low carb items! It would make things so much easier for everyone! It would also be nice if they made everything affordable.
    PS: I'll bet next week you'll see a nice drop!

  2. I think you are right. When I looked at my Clemmy O's they had the BFC logo on the bottom. So did my Nature's Hollow jam. We may be the start of something huge:)
    I know gaining a lb stinks....but you can do this. We are all here to support one another in the up's and down's! It's a lifestyle, a cure...not the die it:)

  3. P.S. I added Gina's off your site earlier:) I love seeing the blogs that other people are watching!

  4. Hi Kay, you know my weight goes up and down all the time. It's just a part of being a woman I guess. Don't worry about it. It's gonna all even out. Thanks for the new blog link. I will check it out.
    Have a great day :-)

  5. In my opinion, one pound up after being on vacation is a windfall - way to go! I'm sure it be off next week. Have a great one!
