My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

Between my husband's birthday (pizza and chocolate mousse cake) and a brand new back muscle strain, this week has pretty much been a wash for the BFC plan. My husband and I have resolved to start over fresh on Sunday. In the meantime we're trying to make decent choices but we're also getting the demons out of our system.
I'm not happy about this. I know this is akin to emotional eating, but I need my husband to be on board with this. If I'm stopping off at Burger King on my way home for him, I'll grab something for myself, too. If he makes hot dogs and chili fries, I'll join in. So getting him to agree to it, and using the evidence of our false belly fat from this week (I lost 1.6 pounds but gained back over an inch) as motivation, will help us forge ahead.
I also, thanks to this new injury, have been restricted from my Martial Arts practice by my chiropractor. I understand I need to give my body time to really heal, or I'll just do something even worse later on (this strain is from overcompensating from a previous strain). But it's definitely going to drive home the effects of missing the plan's goals this week. Can't wait to punish myself with next week's weigh in.

  1. Hello, When I started the BFC way over a year ago, I did it for me. I also ate all the time with my hubby. But I just flipped some kind of switch in my head and no matter what he or anyone else ate, I never cheated.
    If I could do it with being as big as I was - You can too even if he does not. Just get a salad & chicken strips instead of a burger and fries. You CAN DO THIS!! :-)
