I'm entering a third week on my plan of not eating wheat or sugar. I've definitely seen a reduction in cravings. It feels good to make good choices. It feels good to plan my eating and stay under control. I know from past experience not to get complacent about this . . . eternal vigilance is the price etc. . . . but I am encouraged.
This time I'm focusing to use all my Beck Diet Solution skills, but not to attend very much attention to exactly how I'm looking at any moment, or exactly which clothes I can wear from my "Yo-Yo" collection. I need to focus on behavior patterns and healthy thought processes and I'm really going to try to let the weight progress factors take care of themselves.
It's going to be a long road, but if I do what I've been doing --just one day at a time --I have great hopes of being able to reach and maintain a healthy weight. It will probably take about a year and half, but in God's mercy I plan to be maintaining on the fourth of July, 2014.
I've been enjoying a book called The Four-Day Win by Martha Beck (no relation to Judith Beck). It has a lot to think about and a lot to mentally chew on.
