Belly Fat Cure, Again

I’ve mentioned it before, even with my recent, unexpected weight loss, I still want to lose more and have been considering starting it again.  Yesterday I came by this post and decided that, yep, it’s a sign. 😉

Now get this.  I’ve been using a digital scale for a while, and it’s been telling me the same 3-4 lb range for eons.  Ok, a year or so.  The other day I put it away while I was mopping the kitchen floor (it’s the only flat place that isn’t carpeted) and brought it back out this morning to see what it said before I started the BFC today.

I had to step on it 3 times to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing.  It’s FIFTEEN pounds less!!!  I don’t know if something was stuck in the scale or what, but now I’ve lost weight I didn’t know I’d lost (though it had been mentioned to me by others)!!!!

I’m so happy!!!

And I’m going to write my little boxes in my Filofax and start keeping track again!  Who knows, I might wear shorts this summer! 😉

The Chronodex didn’t work for me as a planner, but the boxes for BFC do. 🙂

I was going to move all my Filofax posts here from my other blog, but decided it was too much work, so only new ones will be here with links to that site. 😉

I decided to stick with the Chameleon – it is SO soft that it’s hard not to keep picking it up!  I had too many pens in it and it caused bulging, as well as difficulty clasping (this picture has gone MIA for some unknown reason).

…and I think I figured out the pen problem.  I removed the orange one (it bled through anyway), and clipped the highlighter to the rings.  Then, I didn’t need the “today” marker because it is easy to find the page now:

You can see my color-coding list that I created, too.  And the lovely post-it’s that my friend sent me with the Chameleon. 🙂

Yesterday I came across this interesting video by Kent from Oz, and thought I’d try it out.  I hand-drew the circle in my planner, and blocked out a bit of time (that has now extended much longer) to work online:

Oh, underneath is the logging system for counting sugars and carbs as in The Belly Fat Cure.

The last change I made was finally putting tags on the dividers.  I just used little arrow-shaped post-its, taped over them, cut off the points, and wrote on them with a Sharpie.  Voila!  The fluorescent pink really stands out. 😉

And that’s my Filofax post for today.  Now to let Philofaxy know so Steve can find me here!
