WEIGH-IN DAY - Week One Belly Fat Cure

I'm afraid to look...somebody else look for me please!
First Week Weigh-In
5.8 lb LOSS ! ! !
2" off my waist!

Oh wow!  Oh Wow!  Oh WOW!!!!!!!  I'm soo happy!!!  What a great start to my goal of losing 70 lbs!  
I know it won't be this way each week...but am thankful I started off at a healthy pace!

Some advise to start out with smaller goals and once you hit those goals to set another.  I'm sorry but for me...this time...ALL BETS ARE OFF!!!  I'm not going to play the game and set myself up to hit a goal and linger there until I'm ready to set another...which usually never happens and has been my repeated pattern in the past.  No, this time... I'm looking at the TRUE goal and I'm heading THERE...and not stopping till I reach THERE!  Actually, I see that this plan IS my Lifestyle eating plan that I can live with for a Lifetime! So once I reach my "THERE", I will (not "I plan on"..but "I WILL") continue maintaining my balanced sugars and carbs from here on out!  

I know I'm only one week in...but there's something different about this plan!  I have tried so many diets, exercise programs, more diets, other lifestyle changes...just short of surgery... that I should be called the guru of diet plans!  So when my friend and I were talking weight loss a few weeks ago and I told her that I guess the only truth to losing weight is:  "Eat less; Exercise More".....she stopped me and said...can you read just one more book?    Being desperate I said  YES!  She began to tell me about the Belly Fat Cure and how it had helped a friend of hers to lose 40+ lbs.  Thus my story begins... 

I knew once I read the book...The Belly Fat Cure...that this plan is different!!!  I can actually EAT and be satiated!  I can look forward to the next meal instead of dreading another salad or gagging on volumes of protein!  The best part was knowing it would give me a path to follow to rid myself of my sugar addiction! Unlike other plans that either slice your carbs to death or just make small suggestions on better choices...This plan is all about learning how to swap bad carbs for good carbs!!!  BALANCE is what I see within this plan...BALANCE is what I needed...BALANCE is what I am beginning to experience as my body responds to a more balanced diet!  

I have posted a new chart off to the right which will chart my losses over the months to follow.  I have set a realistic goal of April 1, 2011 to lose the 70 lbs.  It may happen sooner or it may happen later...but IT WILL HAPPEN!  As I said in my last post... I no longer own that 70 lbs!  Now my body just needs to catch up with what is TRUTH!  I am a healthy, active, 53 year old woman who loves to swim, hike and Enjoy Life To It's Fullest!  Woo Hoo!!!

I'm going to start compiling a list of Good Belly Snacks as that seems to be a repeated question on the FaceBook Forum.  Hopefully I will get this posted in the next day or two.  If you have any favorite snacks you would like me to include...please send them to my email:

Thank you for taking the time to read...Please feel free to post your comments below!  I read them all and love and appreciate your support.  Let me know if you also have a blog!  I would love to add you to my blog list and help support your success as well!

The day I reach my goal...Will be the day this appears on the top of the page!

I can say too that i will do this the rest of my life, it's been 6 months and i haven't even cheated because i just love it. When you have results it makes it so much more rewarding. My body has changed so much and is still changing, it's just an incredible way of life!! Happy Eating!!!

  6. That's a great loss for the first week! I'm glad you're not focused on what the number will be each week, but rather this is a long term change, no matter how long it takes you to get to where you want to be.
