Solving Problems
Wednesday, November 15, 2017      4 comments

Day 34 of the Beck book is all bout solving problems. I think the idea of problems is relative. What is a problem for me may not be a problem for me, and vice versa. In addition our response to the same problem may be entirely different and both... Read more

So this is the one thing I think nearly everyone does at some time. How many times d we sit down and watch a movie or TV she and the characters choose to eat ice cream because they are depressed... or go out for a night of drinking (more than 1 ... Read more
Days 31 and 31 of Beck
Monday, November 13, 2017      4 comments

31 is easy...I don't drink. I grew up in a double header...both parents drank to excess. My dad was an abusive falling down drunk. MY mother drank to cope. I was sneaking alcohol by the time I was 12 and polishing off a 6-pack of Colt 45 at 16. ... Read more
Things to think about

Beck Day 29 speaks of resisting food pushers. Honestly, I don't recall having difficulty with this problem. It would not be uncommon for me to attend a social event and choose not to eat anything at all, even when something wonderful is being ha... Read more
Beck Days 24 and 25

Day 24 asks you to deal wth discouragement. For those of us who eat when discouraged, we must recognize this as emotional eating. I don't relate to the examples she has given, but I certainly do get discouraged about things unrelated to diet and... Read more
Week 4 of Beck
Wednesday, November 01, 2017      3 comments

Day 22 is saying "Oh well" to disappointment. I think I'm pretty good at that. I had to live with that in my childhood as well as my adulthood. Day 23 is countering the unfairness of a situation. To me, these two are very closely related. When I... Read more
Beck days 20 and 21
Monday, October 30, 2017      1 comments

Day 20 refers to getting back on track. The tricky part is when you have an off-plan event and need to return to your plan. This has not been difficult for me ever since ~Indygirl's post years ago about when you have a flat tire, you don't slash... Read more

We were away for almost 2 weeks. I had time to read some blogs and spin the wheel, using the app, but no real time to write anything. We had some very stressful days. We had a 4,100 trip ahead and 30 minutes into the drive we had car trouble. Ou... Read more

Day 15 is intended to be the start of the diet. I am in maintenance and don't ant to lose much but I DO want to learn to think like a thin person a la Beck pink book. I am already keeping a pretty close eye on what goes in and how much activity ... Read more

So on the Beck agenda for today... I have read my cards I sit to eat and I eat slowly, putting down the utensils between some of the bites and savoring the taste of what I am eating I am giving myself credit when I do things correctly I'... Read more
I'm hungry...
Friday, October 13, 2017      6 comments

Yesterday's Beck assignment was to identify the difference between hunger, desire and craving, so we are asked to document our level of "hungry" before, during, after meals and then 20 minutes after the meal. Before breakfast, I was 4-5 (on a s... Read more
the difference between hunger, desire and cravings
Thursday, October 12, 2017      5 comments

Today's Beck (for me since I am behind) tells the difference between being hungry, wanting something and having a craving. This is an excellent lesson for me because I am not always good about telling the difference, and will sometimes succumb i... Read more

So reading Beck today, I covered days 9 and 10. I have the exercise thing set up on a daily basis already. For me the challenge will be in a week when I am traveling 8-10 hours a day. I will be really wanting to stretch and move every time we ta... Read more

I have read the Beck cards and am sitting and eating more slowly, putting the utensil down off and on throughout the meal. I didn't pick a specific diet because I am in maintenance and the foods I eat are appropriate. It's the snacking that I mu... Read more

I finally received my Beck pink book towards the end of last week. Because I am in maintenance and actually have been for over a year, I chose to read a bit more instead of 1 day at a time. I got myself ready with the supplies and wrote my advan... Read more
