Thanks Dr. Beck!

Saturday, October 12, 2013

My status today:
KHELIA sat for two hours in front of a big plate of puff-pastries and did not have one! Yes!

At a press-conference they put this plate directly under my nose. Maybe this skinny girl who served it, thought, this this thick one (me) needed something!
It smelled great.
So i took a nose, then another and was tempted to reach out and get me some.
But it was not mealtime. So the idea came up, why should i eat it? Could eating this, be better than smelling it?
Could i make an lovely experience in only smelling it?
Yes - i could. It was wonderfull to take some big breathes full of this wonderful pastries. No need to eat them. Smelling them was as satisfying (maybe more) than eating them.

So big pat on my back and thanks to Dr. Beck and the NoS-Team.

    Great job! I heard about the Dr. Beck books, and keep wondering how they are. When I tried Weight Watchers again, there was a group who raved about them.

Slowly: A new way in thinking

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Passed three days in Berlin.
Lots of tourists there and alot of street-food.
In times before i would have plunged into these multible occasions.
I love Chinese, Korean, Thai, Japanese, Italian.... [add whatever you want] food.

I found one Becks technique very helpful. I said to myself: "You want it, but you dont need it." I told me that loosing was more important than snacking. That i can wait till my next meal. At my next meal i could have it - but not now.
That was great.
So i had sucessful NoS-days in the middle of Street-food-paradise

    And you enjoy the street food even more when you are really hungry for it and don't end up stuffed.

    I love that thought. I often want what I don't need.... not only in food.

7 weeks with NoS

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

.. and i still love it.

Even if a have some fail-days every week. But i think its normal.
If i catch me having-something-in-beetween i realize it, but i wont make a big thing of it and go back immediately to NoS

The best thing: Weight comes down. Slowly, but consistently. Two Pounds gone. Nice!

While doing a guided meditation for health, i got a emoticon

Food gives me not only comfort, but a unique style of living. Preparing a meal and setting up a nice table is easy and quick to do.
This is a bit of replacement for the comfort and luxury i miss in daily life.
Beeing always on the run, i use meal-times to "have a break". To indulge in style and luxury.
Conclusion? Have more luxury, style and comfort in other parts of my life.

So i decided to make over my house. Moved in a year and half ago and was really sick for a year. So everything is just "in place", but not really comfortable and charming.
First i do a bedroom-makeover now under the guidance of Apartment Therapys "Style Cure".

    Change usually means one is feeling well enough to deal with it!! Maybe when you're done we get to see some pictures??

Keep on keeping on....

Common traps for me..

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

One of the traps i tap in often is the thought of "i have to leave house, so i wont have the time for a meal, so i will have a quick snack" *grrr*

NO! this doesnt work.
The reason:
A snack wont satisfy me.
I will be hungry an hour later.
Coming home an hour later or two i want to have my "real meal".
Then its allover in my head and makes me sad.

Conclusion: Hunger is no emergency. I can wait till im home again. Or if this will get very urgent, i can stop at a restaurant.

    Our thought processes don't always ring true, but it isn't always easy to separate the truth from fiction. Good work on your part. There will always be traps...we just don't have to get caught in them.
