11 pounds and holding - BFC

I seem to have stabilized at an 11 pound loss...I think mainly it is because I am far more physically active than before so I am building and toning muscle, which offsets the fat loss pound wise. I am still shrinking...pants fitting looser and all that so I am not upset or even concerned by it. I am thinking of ways I can break this plateau though because I do want to continue losing. I have 10 to 15 more to go and I know the last bit comes off much slower but I would like to loose at least 5 more in the next month. Right now I am sitting at 139 but would like to break the 135 mark. I am eating the same thing fairly regularly because that is what is easy to pack for the day. Maybe changing my food around will help....idk because what I am eating follows the BFC to the T. I think there have been several days where I fall short of the 6 carb servings (though I am getting more than enough fiber) so I don't know if that will have an adverse effect. I am going to pack my food journal with me when I go and start writing it all down again so I can see if there are any mistakes I am making. I don't see how because it is what I have always eaten on the BFC but I am going to do it just to be sure. I am also adding back in the probiotics at least 3x a week. Since going to work I have forgotten to do that so maybe that will help too. Anyway, I am happy with how I look and feel right now so I am not stressed about it but more just wanting to stay motivated and see some more results. I am going to post my typical day so you all can maybe see if there is a change I should make. Early morning 2 1/2 T psyllium husks in water plus one more glass of water 0/1 Breakfast (about 2 hours later) 1/2 c Uncle Sams Cereal w/ Almond Milk 1/2 Lunch Some type of meat or cheese sandwich on OrowheatLight 1/2 Snack Pepperoni stick 0/0, string cheese 0/0 or Almonds (small amount...10-15) 0/0 Dinner usually a protein only dinner but occasionally I will pick up a carb serving here. I drink 0/0 coffee all day and herbal tea 0/0 or water. Some days I have a powdered juice drink w/stevia....can be a 0/1 but I drink it so slowly during the day that it really is 0/0 That is what I eat on a typical day. Have a belly good day!!


  1. Randi....11 lbs in such a short period of time doing the BFC is awesome!! Your body is probably just catching up. Keep doing what you are doing....it will come off!
    Have a great day!!

  2. I agree with Sherri, plus you are probably losing fat and gaining muscle. The scale is not the best measure of how you are doing, I think how we look and how our clothes fit is better. You are doing awesome 11 lbs lost is great, and I know you will get to where you want to be! :)

  3. Yeah girl - you are doing good. Don't be so hard on yourself.
    Don't forget to drink lots of water with the psyllium. Try no carbs after 3pm and no food after 7pm. That might help you.
    Have a great day :-)
