Sunday, November 01, 2015      8 comments

I've really been on the eating program for a little more than a month. I think I can deal with whatever the scale says tomorrow. I still hope my weight is down :) I stayed on track at the party, didn't even eat 1 sweet thing (did allow myself 2 ... Read more
Day 27 - Beck - Master the seven question technique
Saturday, October 31, 2015      7 comments

I think my favorite question is what would I tell a friend if they had this sabotaging thought? If I could ask myself this question with every one of them, I know I could be in better control of my eating at all times. It's just getting to the p... Read more
Day 26 - Beck - Recognize Thinking Mistakes
Thursday, October 29, 2015      7 comments

What I feel is the most important thing from this day is remembering that a thought is not necessarily a truth and that deluding oneself is easy when it comes to an addiction. If I can keep my thoughts clear and not clouded by my addiction (whic... Read more
Day 25 - Identify Sabotaging Thoughts
Wednesday, October 28, 2015      7 comments

I have to say I have had some sabotaging thoughts but have easily dismissed them so far. Stayed on track today and still didn't eat any of the Halloween snacks. Believe it or not, I haven't been tempted. I have a strong determination right now a... Read more
Day 24 - Beck -Deal with Discouragement
Wednesday, October 28, 2015      7 comments

I think this is a big one for me. Can't quite remember what got me started on sugar again but it definitely won't happen again. I think having a coach will help and all the support from my sparkfriends and fellow Beckers should be most helpful. ... Read more
Day 23 - Beck - Counter the Unfairness Syndrome
Sunday, October 25, 2015      9 comments

I say we shouldn't dwell on fair and I don't think I really would consider that, but remember that you can eat 1 cookie or 2 and adjust your other food or say to yourself, "I don't really want to use my calories for the day on ________." whateve... Read more
!Day 21 - Get ready to weigh in/Day 22 - Say Oh,well to disappointment
Sunday, October 25, 2015      6 comments

This is a directive to psych yourself into not getting to concerned about the numbers on the scale. If you think you were doing great and your numbers are not down, don't get discouraged. It's the long term lifestyle that is important and it tak... Read more
Day 20 - Beck - Get Back on Track
Saturday, October 24, 2015      7 comments

This is one I can really use! How to respond to the fooling yourself thought that encourages you to abandon your eating plan for the whole day after you eat something you weren't supposed to. I will get back in control if I do eat something not ... Read more
Day 19 - Beck - Stop Fooling Yourself
Thursday, October 22, 2015      4 comments

I must admit, I have done this many times in the past but I've been using the NO CHOICE answer to myself if any of these sabotaging thoughts even cross my mind. I really did want to eat more at dinner today. I was only having fruit for dessert b... Read more
Day 18 - Beck -Change your definition of Full
Thursday, October 22, 2015      8 comments

I will try to always be aware if I think full or not. Sometimes I think I probably just ignore the feeling of being full because eating is enjoyable. I do love flavor and that means food. I know I can check by thinking about whether I would be c... Read more
Day 17 - Beck - End Overeating
Wednesday, October 21, 2015      5 comments

Today is End Overeating. There's a good goal. If I would just never overeat, I would be at my ideal weight. I went out to lunch and didn't eat like I usually would have. I felt satisfied when I left but not overfull. I didn't order any dessert a... Read more
Day 16 - Beck - Prevent Unplanned Eating
Monday, October 19, 2015      8 comments

This has been good for me so far. I did eat a snack after tennis tonight but left some calories in case I felt I needed them. So it was kind of planned. I played this morning and ate an apple before I left and breakfast when I got home. Tonite I... Read more
Day 15 - Beck - Monitor your eating
Sunday, October 18, 2015      8 comments

Here's another one I've been doing for a couple of weeks. I have been putting my food in the Food Tracker every day. I am pretty good at following my plan. Sometimes I change the ingredients a bit but it's pretty close. I'm working on getting a ... Read more
Day 13 - Overcome Cravings/ Day14 - Plan for tomorrow
Saturday, October 17, 2015      6 comments

I'm doing 2 days today because I've been planning for tomorrow every day for a couple of weeks. Definitely makes it easier. No spur of the moment deciding. That doesn't work for me. Overcoming cravings on the other hand is something else:( I've... Read more
I made it to dinner!!
Friday, October 16, 2015      8 comments

I made it through from breakfast until dinner and didn't eat anything. I do have a bit of a headache but it's not bad :) It would be worse but I took Advil and it kept it from getting out of hand. I didn't go wild at dinner and I didn't eat unti... Read more
