Success with Gods help--Beck and friends

Thursday, March 06, 2008


First yesterday was extremely hectic. My computer went crazy and I thought it had a virus and I began to panic but I remember before what I done before I joined spark people. I keep everything on pad and pencil. I use that for backup in case I can't get on the computer or the computer blows up. God forbid that!!!!!

Any way yesterday went well as for as my eating and exercising. I am have trying to make it habit to eat mindfully as per Beck suggestions. I remember my grandfather saying he chewed bites of his food 30 times. Boy that will take some time, but I tried it and that helped me to slow down with my eating.

I struggle with eating in front of the tv especially at dinner time. The news comes on and I want to watch it. Well I'll keep working at it until I master that too.

I woke up to a pleasant surprise I have lost 2.8 pounds YAY FOR ME. Just a little note to keep me going and accountable this new life style and it is still new to me. Does matter how long I have been here what matters is that I haven't given up. I have to say of course thanks be to God and Jesus for giving me the strength.

Oh yea my know it all teenager came home and the crazy computer worked for him. He tried to tell me what was what. I rebuked him and went on with business.

2.8 Oh Yea!!!!

    My mother always said to chew 25 times. Sometimes she would sit there and count the number of times I've chewed. It was annoying, but now I understand why she said that. I just need to practice it again.

Congrats on the weight loss!

without a cause

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

I went over on my lunch allowance without a cause except I didn't eat breakfast on time instead I had brunch. That never works for me. I know better but it could not be helped. I will just have to plan for the unexpected some how. I did not go over cal range but I have just enought to get in a small meal in. I am not defeated, just thrown a curve. But I have had curves thrown at me before. Oh Well!! As the Beck Card would say. I will go on and begin my binge free month over again. Life will happen, but all is not lost. I have Christ on my side. Just a note for accountabillity to myself.

Out to lunch!

Monday, March 03, 2008


me and hd went out to lunch this afternoon. I read my Beck Book last night.

A few rules.

1. Take small bites and chew slowly.
2. Finish chewing and swallowing each bite before you put more food on your fork.
3. Put your utensils down before you pick them up again.

4. Take a sip of water every minutes or two.

At first I thought that this was crazy and I would not have time to eat slowly
but it worked. I feel good about this. I copied down on a card these rules and took them with me. I felt fuller. But my hd had about two plates of food along with two desserts when I was just finishing my salad with protein. Thank to all my friend on the prayers warriors and other teams. Most of all I give praise to God.

My Weakness but Gods Strength

Sunday, March 02, 2008


MY HD CAME FROM THE RADIO STATION THIS AFTERNOON WITH AN APPLE PIE.

OF COURSE I COMPLAINED. NOT ONLY AM I TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT BUT I AM DIABETIC. HE JUST DOESN'T UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT.

SOMETIMES I DON'T THINK HE EVER THINKS. HIS FIRST RESPONSE IS ALWAYS "YIELD NOT TO TEMPTATION. MY RESPONSE WAS TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE WHICH I DID. I SAID " WHAT IF I PUT ON A BIKINI AND WALKED AROUND EVERYWHERE WITH IT ON, "AND GOT UPSET BECAUSE I GOT WHISTLED AT". IF I TEMPTED ANYONE THAT WOULD BE ON MY NOSE NOT THEIRS.

MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS TO BUY MINI DESSERT DISHES TO MAKE MINI PIES AND I HAD MY RECIPE READY. THE PIE MAY BE ON THE HIGH CARBS END, AND I AM NOT GIVING UP SUNDAY DINNER FOR A PIECE OF PIE.

I AM GREATER THAN PIE, BECAUSE GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THEN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD. I AM A MIGHTY WARRIOR OF GOD THUR CHRIST. I
AM AN OVER COMER, BECK CARDS ARE NOT ALWAYS NEAR, BUT GOD IS ALWAYS THERE. MAY I NEVER FORGET TO ASK FOR HIS HELP. I AM WEAK, BUT HE IS ALL POWERFUL.

I DIDN'T GET ANY PIE INSTEAD I GOT SOME MIXED FRUIT AND PUT YOGURT OVER THE FRUIT IN A PRETTY PARFAIT GLASS.

MY PRAYER IS I LEAN MORE ON CHRIST EVERYDAY.

    Hey Do, you did a lot better than I did for dinner. A friend and myself went out to dinner. I had chili soup, rib steak, baked potato and a hugh salad which I brought half home. I also brought half the steak an potato home. Well, now that I write it down it doesn't sound too bad. Hee-hee. Now should I say, thank you, Lord.

Oh WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, February 29, 2008


Well in short I have to move the scale yet once again. SCREAM!!!!!! I am determined to lose this wieght. I move the scale to keep myself accountable. I have to use the Beck Repsonse Cards more. I ask myself why is it taking so long to lose this weigh. The problem isn't the scale but my mouth and what I shove in it. This weight has to go. Once again I will go forward and try my best not to look back on my slumbles. Here is to being honest. Emotional eating isn't easily conqured but I am NOT a quitter.
http://oh well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey, You are doing great! You can never ifail if you never give up. Maybe you are exchanging fat for muscle. Do your clothes fit better? Do you feel better? I can tell I am getting stronger because I can exercise longer than I could a few days before. Remember the scle is not the only way to measure progress.

    I understand and hear your frustration. Sadly, it isn't your poor scale. But, remember. there are other ways to measuring your losses besides the scale. Look for something positive!
