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!!
