Atkintuitive / Beck Diet Solution - Forever Hopeful

I have returned to Spark for the support and guidance that it gives. This time around, I am willing to ask for help and to help others if I can. I am incorporating some "Intuitive Eating" practices into my Atkin's diet, which is oddly counter-intuitive to the whole Intuitive Eating philosophy! lol. I like to call it "Atkintuitive Eating". It only means to me that I eat Atkin's phase I acceptable foods when I am at a certain numeric level and only eat enough to satisfy that hunger. I have done ...
I have returned to Spark for the support and guidance that it gives. This time around, I am willing to ask for help and to help others if I can. I am incorporating some "Intuitive Eating" practices into my Atkin's diet, which is oddly counter-intuitive to the whole Intuitive Eating philosophy! lol. I like to call it "Atkintuitive Eating". It only means to me that I eat Atkin's phase I acceptable foods when I am at a certain numeric level and only eat enough to satisfy that hunger. I have done this in the past with some immediate results for ketosis. Also, I am reading and getting ready to begin the "Beck Diet Solution for Life" so that I can add some Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to the whole thinking process during this endeavor. I use CBT every day while working with clients who are struggling with addiction issues. So, I am hoping that using the CBT skills will also help me to help my clients as well. Teaching a skill that I use regularly vs. one that I do not use will be evident in my interactions with clients. Aside from that, my thinking is usually in need of re-structuring with dieting. I will talk myself out of hard work at all points of weakness. I will blog about it and see how it goes. The main key to the success though, will be the ketosis and breaking free from my chronic addiction to carbs. I believe that I am a carb addict who has been up to her neck in addiction this whole last month of November!

Don't feel bad. Nobody goes from a significant weight problem to goal weight without slip ups. It's just part of it. (Like in football, a fumble is not part of the game plan, but it is part of the game.) The ability to get back on track right away is often the difference between living life at the weight you want and years of continuing struggle. Grab a glass of water, go for a walk, log your food for today, read your Advantages Card and Response Cards -- you are back on track and ready for success!!! -Marsha

Marsha, I feel really bad that you gave me angel wings, and then I messed up the last two days in a row! :( I am feeling very low about it. Sorry to be a downer right now. I am going to bed now. Tomorrow is another day.

I moved "you" to my SparkPage so I wouldn't forget to check your blog. (Somehow when I subscribe to blogs it doesn't seem to work.) Should I miss checking one, please remind me - a SparkMail or comment on my page or whatever. Please let me know if there is anything special I could do to help you. I'm really excited for you. You are doing great during a very challenging time of the year! If you can do it now, you can definitely do it!! -Marsha
