GABY1948's SparkPeople Blog GABY1948's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! Wow! I cannot believe I'm finally doing this. But before I do this I will apologize and warn you this is a long long. I actually have a very full heart today. Those of you who do know me know I have a BIG heart for others! <BR> <BR> Most of my close friends know that I have wanted to blog for probably a month or two but I just did not "have it in me". <BR> <BR> But today, if nothing else I do want to wish everyone whether you celebrate the same Thanksgiving as we in the US do or not I wa... Thu, 26 Nov 2015 09:40:01 EST Update - and Beck Blue Reboot coming in January - I Think Today was, as usual, a very busy day around here. I realized though that since I have "changed lifestyles" for HEALTH, I actually STAY busy all the time...and ON PURPOSE. I bet a lot of us do that very thing! It WORKS! <BR> <BR> So, to update you all on my bp this morning we did take it and it is up to 110/'s WORKING being off the meds! I was also totally back to my approximate PERFECT weight number too. But BEST news is that my head is even CLEARER today since my bp is being a... Sat, 17 Oct 2015 19:03:30 EST DOCTOR Appointment Today and MORE of WHY I LOVE Beck so much! I have been waiting for my yearly physical for a few weeks....since before our vacation recently. BUT, when it got close I started getting freakier and freakier! <BR> <BR> It began last night after dinner really. I started freaking KNOW me now and when I freak, I freak! It was only about AGE. I KNOW I have done everything right along the way since learning Beck and "training my brain to think like a thin person"..I know I don't eat sugar, or fatty things or any of mainta... Thu, 15 Oct 2015 22:28:33 EST ANOTHER Short BLOG...but HAD to tell you all! I am sitting in the motel right now...running on PURE coffee to stay awake...John and I am both WORN OUT...but I had to share what happened today at Verizon Wireless! We DO go right back home tomorrow after church and will be RESTING up all WEEK long and I can catch up with all of you! <BR> <BR> It was time for new cell phones and the Verizon store is halfway between home and here so today was the DAY! My phone has not rung in for about 6 weeks for calls...otherwise has been great...Verizo... Sat, 10 Oct 2015 21:27:04 EST DIFFERENT Sort of Blog on Blogs! You have probably noticed that in all my busy-ness of the last two weeks vacation and then getting home and having so much to do that I just have not been "into" blogging Beck this time. I did it the first time diligently but this time my oomph is just not here for the Beck Blogs. I AM working Beck and will always until the day I leave this earth. And there are so many EXCELLENT blogs that I am loving reading and so many of you are also...I just love this community. <BR> <BR> I'm not into... Thu, 8 Oct 2015 19:34:03 EST Contents of the LOST BLOG yesterday (I HOPE)! I have lost that blog from yesterday 3 times! I hope to have this one go...I have done it in an email to post here except for the pictures. <BR> <BR> I do love what my spark friend AQUAGIRL08 said about lost blogs, “they all go to Blog Heaven” and that is where I shall forever think of them being <BR> <BR> John and I are both SO exhausted that we are not functioning well at all....after we got home...I had...NON stop troubles! We got home late Sunday at about 6:30 pm after driving almo... Mon, 5 Oct 2015 18:34:02 EST Lost BLOG! UGH. We are absolutely exhausted from this trip...I am sure I will redo it in the morning and send it then. Was including a few of the pictures from the trip and then LOST it! WHAT a day this has been! Am praying that I am more rested in the morning! <BR> <BR> I will share with you all HOW GREAT BECK is when we work the program! Even for OTHER areas of our lives! <BR> <BR> So keep on doing all you do for HEALTH...whatever you eat or however you move your bodies! It works! I am living proof... Sun, 4 Oct 2015 19:42:34 EST HOME I am just checking in...we are going HOME and will blog all catch ups later and trip! <BR> <BR> THANK you for all your support! Love all you guys! <em>247</em> <em>247</em> <em>247</em> Sat, 3 Oct 2015 08:05:28 EST Beck Trek - Day 33 & 34 - But Mostly UPDATE Day 34 and Day 35 are "SOLVE PROBLEMS" and "GET READY TO WEIGH-IN" (Again)! <BR> <BR> I'm not spending a lot of time on these because, again, there are SO many WONDERFUL blogs out there (and, yes, I've been reading all of them) that I could not possibly expound better on them. Our PRECIOUS leader, SLENDERELLA61 (I call her "Queen of Beck") is SO <em>345</em> at blogging and teaching and following Beck that she always has every base covered. <BR> <BR> I wanted to tell you all about where... Thu, 1 Oct 2015 09:32:27 EST Beck Trek - Day 33 - Eliminate Emotional Eating Now, before I even begin this, I know you are probably wondering IF this one still affects me....YES, of course it does...NOT the eating part (so far) but the emotional part...BIG TIME! But, it is something I have been honestly, diligently working on and it has BEEN working! I am truly learning to control the FEELINGS of "urgency" I get inside during those times! <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> I will share more with you all when I go home this week and have more time...but the "result" of bing... Tue, 29 Sep 2015 23:24:02 EST Beck Trek - Day 32 - Prepare for Travel This is an EASY one for me, obviously, since I have been traveling for over a week now...but being a not first time, it's easy! <BR> <BR> Beck starts with: <BR> <BR> Making a Travel Plan <BR> <BR> I actually plan for "unusual happenings" WHENEVER and WHEREVER I go for over an hour. <BR> <BR> Allow ourselves a few hundred extra calories every day, (This is what SHE does - NOT ME) <BR> Follow our usual plan every day but add minor splurges on a few occasions (so far I have never had to do t... Mon, 28 Sep 2015 21:59:05 EST Beck Trek - Day 31 - Decide About Drinking...Ahhhh, another EASY one! Today, Day 31 is: Decide About Drinking...which is NO decision for me at all. I haven't drunk anything for well over 20 years, so it is an off day for me. <BR> <BR> And kind of a hurry this morning...really tired but will wake up later today when we go see Custer Battlefield so you all know I am excited about this day. <BR> <BR> ALL the Beck blogs I have read have been EXCELLENT, but of course, it is an EXCELLENT subject! <BR> <BR> I will check in later sometime and read more blogs and c... Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:57:19 EST Beck Trek - Day 28, 29, 30 - and an Update on Vacation Thank you ALL for hanging in there with me! It has been challenging times for sure as far as internet access goes. We gave up staying at the chain of motels we were in because it had a "different" internet provider that did the tech support for ALL their sites and it was horrible...finally blamed my computer but I knew it wasn't...because John has been using my other laptop and it was FINE! Yike! So we are at a Best Western in Wall, SD and plan to stick with them! It is AWESOME service! ... Sat, 26 Sep 2015 08:52:09 EST Update - challenging to say least Will catch up tonite on both days...internet was none last night...sat for hours on with tech support...will be glad to be home whenever...having a wonderful time otherwise! <BR> <BR> Love you all! Fri, 25 Sep 2015 09:28:21 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 27 - Master the 7 Question Technique Today Beck discusses the 7 Question Technique. I don't know why, but this was not my favorite in the first trek through Beck Pink for me. We are getting ready to leave so I will write more tonite but wanted to stop by and tell you all to remember HEALTH today in all you EAT and all you MOVE your bodies. I am doing GREAT and on vacation...and I owe it all to BECK, and to my COACH/WONDERFUL BUDDIES in Beck, and to all of you! <BR> <BR> Love you all! Will see you tonight! <BR> <BR> <em>2... Wed, 23 Sep 2015 08:46:59 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 26 - Recognize Thinking Mistakes Day 26, and I'm down another pound....but will be getting to a point that eating SHOULD become more normalized not freaking anymore because Marsha told me to remember that a lot could be from the CHANGES in traveling and being so worn out...and I had sorta come to that conclusion yesterday myself! And the SLOWER WINTER season is coming up with less movement for sure! OH Well, Oh Well, Oh Well! NO CHOICE...just keep doing it! <BR> <BR> Beck defines Common Thinking Errors <BR> <... Tue, 22 Sep 2015 08:22:19 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 25 - Identifying Sabotaging Thoughts Today is Day 25! HOW is that POSSIBLE? It's true when they say, "TIME FLIES when we're HAVING FUN! I DO hope you are having as much fun as I did when I did Beck for the FIRST time and EVERY time since! It truly IS fun for me. It's like when I was 4 or 5 years old and learned to rid a two-wheel bike for the FIRST time...I learned from my dad as he would run beside/behind me, holding up the bike I was riding as I pedaled until the day he no longer had to hold on and I just TOOK OFF riding ... Mon, 21 Sep 2015 18:27:59 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 24 - Deal with DISCOURAGEMENT Now THIS day I CAN REALLY RELATE TO! TOTALLY, did while doing FIRST Beck and it "ain't changed" all that much! UGH Not so much the sticking to my diet and the things she talks of here but for me it is the "disappointment" and "frustration" of doing EVERYTHING RIGHT and still seeing major fluctuations for seemingly NO reason! ~SIGH~ <BR> <BR> She says it is just life intervening, and things make sticking to our diet more difficult and cravings being more intense...not me...just the SCALE n... Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:02:53 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 23 - Counter the Unfairness Syndrome This will be a quick one. I have been WORKING ALL DAY getting ready to leave on vacation tomorrow for two weeks but I will AT LEAST be able to come blog my days and do my challenges and such and keep up with your blogs. John believes in packing everything one might need during 2 weeks...A LOT! And I am again worn out but really looking forward to it! <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> It (Beck) is an AMAZING journey and I am so thankful to be doing this just BEFORE and DURING this vacation! A... Sat, 19 Sep 2015 21:03:41 EST Beck Pink Trek - Week 4 - Day 22 - Say, Oh, Well, to Disappointment Beck first addresses to Respond to Sabotaging Thoughts! <BR> <BR> Three main ones: <BR> <BR> Disappointment: I really wish I could eat this! <BR> <BR> Unfairness: It's not fair that they can eat that food and I CAN'T! <BR> <BR> Feeling Overwhelmed: This is too hard. I can't keep this up! <BR> <BR> She also tells us that we should expect to still face times of doubt and disappointment! <BR> <BR> SAY, Oh, Well, to Disappointment: <BR> <BR> I have to say I love WATERMELLEN's slant ... Fri, 18 Sep 2015 20:31:20 EST Beck Pink Trek - Day 21 - Get Ready to Weigh In Beck tells us tomorrow we weigh in! I have (as most of us have) weighted in EVERY day for some time now...but it's a very good day anyway. She says these "weekly" weigh-ins can help us in these ways: <BR> <BR> They allow us to celebrate and build up our confidence when we've lost weight. <BR> <BR> They keep us honest if we've gained weight (shudder). <BR> <BR> They help us stay committed to the program. <BR> <BR> The Numbers on the Scale <BR> <BR> Often before they could cause us to h... Thu, 17 Sep 2015 20:33:48 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 20 - Get Back on Track Today WOULD have been a day that I would have in old days "fallen off" for sure. We mowed ALL day! And I am BEAT! <em>102</em> BUTT (there's that big butt) that wasn't ALL...our internet was down all day too! The WHOLE network was down...EVERYONE! But, obviously, we are back up now. <BR> <BR> There are SO many absolutely outstanding blogs on this day and my blog will again be short. We learn how to respond to the specific fooling-ourselves thought --- the one that encourages us toe... Wed, 16 Sep 2015 20:47:49 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 19 - Stop Fooling Ourselves Today is (almost was now) Stop Fooling Ourselves! <BR> <BR> Beck begins with how incredibly easy it is for dieters to delude themselves about food. Even if incredibly rational and reasonable in most things, when it comes to dieting it all can go out the window.Think about times we have "dieted" in the past...did we give ourselves a "fake" excuse to eat? This would have been me! Even if I'd stubbed my toe THAT was a reason to to EAT no abandonment! She gives a whole huge list of sabotagin... Tue, 15 Sep 2015 21:51:25 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 18 - Change Our Definition of Full Yesterday was end overeating now today is to change our definition of full! And I'm sitting here right now and after dinner...and I had more cabbage soup! SO am feeling pretty full but I know NO where like I used to feel...I think WATERMELLEN expressed it as eating until our eyeballs popped! She's SO cute and descriptive! That would have also been me! <BR> <BR> Basically (and this one will be short tonite because there are already SO many great blogs on this day), I can't see how anyone ... Mon, 14 Sep 2015 19:51:10 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 17 - END OVEREATING Well, again thankful today's blog is a short one! I have been up since 1am and it is 9:10 right now so that is 20 hours so far. But,as a fe of you know we went south to where we will be moving next Spring and went to our new church, where John's BIL is pastor and of course his sister is Pastor's wife! We THOROUGHLY enjoyed the WHOLE day! Church and then we and SIL and BIL and an absolutely lovely couple we know from there went to dinner and talked for HOURS there. Made for a long and love... Sun, 13 Sep 2015 22:36:19 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 16 - Prevent Unplanned Eating! Today's Day 16 is just what the title says. Beck says that most people don't struggle much when deciding when and what to eat. BUT, when we struggle with things going through our minds or things that happened during the day! <BR> <BR> I'm sure this has happened to all of us. I know it has to me! BUT...she says, when we opt NOT do just "go ahead and EAT", we will learn that "just as deciding to eat can reduce tension, SO CAN DECIDING NOT TO EAT! <em>244</em> <em>526</em> <em>10... Sat, 12 Sep 2015 19:20:55 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 15 - Monitor Our Eating! WOW do we all believe it? We now are into week 3! It is racing by but in a satisfying way. EVERYONE is doing so WELL! Week 3 title: <BR> <BR> GO: Start Our Diet! I actually believe most of us have already been doing that for quite some time. BUT, sometimes things just need to be SAID! And Beck knows her STUFF! <BR> <BR> She reminds us hat in the past TWO WEEKS we've been more equipped than ever to: <BR> <BR> Plan what we're going to eat. <BR> Eat in a healthy way. <em>104</em... Fri, 11 Sep 2015 22:06:26 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 14 - Plan for Tomorrow I was so very glad to see early today that today is Plan for Tomorrow day. Easy-peasy. Today, obviously, has been a VERY long and busy day again. I may complain about it but I am LOVING this summer. It has been the MOST fun one of my whole 67 years! I mean that because I am HEALTHY, FINALLY. We were gone across state to our favorite store in Clare, MI, Jay's Sporting Goods. Doesn't sound cool? It is full of all of my FAVORITE brands of clothes that I have never bothered to enjoy befor... Thu, 10 Sep 2015 22:38:43 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 13 - Overcome Cravings Hmmmmmmmmmm this one was very relevant my first run through Beck but I honestly can say since that first run of Beck I have not had a CRAVING since I LEARNED Beck. As someone wrote and I'm sorry I can't remember WHO it was, wrote, "Hello, my name is ____, and I'm a Beck-o-holic!!!" I LOVED it and you ALL know by now that that is EXACTLY what I am, a "Beck-o-holic"!!! And HAPPY to be one! <em>334</em> As the old saying went, "TRY it, you'll LIKE it!" <BR> <BR> Today was Day 12 Overc... Wed, 9 Sep 2015 20:51:36 EST Beck Pink Reboot - Day 12 - Practice Hunger Tolerance Well, before I begin the blog today I have to tell you all, I always LOVED this day...and I have done it 2-3 times now. But TODAY was DIFFERENT! I got UP dreading it. Why, I don't know unless it is that since I eat for maintenance now and actually "practice" hunger a lot. I do that because ever since I did Pink Beck the FIRST time and learned for the FIRST time in my life WHAT hunger felt like and was, and that it was OKAY to be hungry! There would always be another meal coming! NEVER ... Tue, 8 Sep 2015 17:24:30 EST Beck Reboot - Day 11 - Differentiate Between Hunger, Desire, and Cravings <em>244</em> WE are coming to the SKIP A MEAL day! MY fav. This and Day 12 of the FIRST BEck I did were actually what TAUGHT me WHAT hunger is, HOW it feels/is supposed to feel and that HUNGER is OK and even a GOOD thing! If you are ANYTHING like me, and so many of us will cherish that lesson for what it TEACHES you! <BR> <BR> I LOVE that I learned the difference in Hunger, Desire, and Cravings. You will too if you don't know yet! GOTTA love Beck! <BR> <BR> HUNGER: when we... Mon, 7 Sep 2015 19:39:19 EST Beck Reboot - Day 10 - Set a Realistic Goal To begin, I am late again. During the FIRST run of Beck I always did my blog EARLY and that is my "goal" for each day this time...but hasn't happened yet. Summer is such a busy time...and as soon as the cold set in I will be wishing I had all the things to do that I find now ~ SIGH ~ but such is like and this is one of the "OH Well" things that will come pretty soon! <BR> <BR> Today is Setting a Realistic Goal. I believe that I did that the first run and I have this was eve... Sun, 6 Sep 2015 20:04:17 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 6 - Week 2 - Day 9 I Exercise Every Day Beck is RIGHT here! I have always found that I cannot lose weight and/or keep it off without exercise...A LOT of exercise. And it is addictive! The more we do the MORE we WANT to do! REALLY! TRY it you'll LIKE (love) it! She tells us that 90 percent of dieters who lose weight and keep it off do so with a COMBINATION of diet and exercise, only 10 percent use diet alone, and only 1 percent rely solely on exercise! <BR> <BR> Reasons she gives: <BR> <BR> Exercise helps us sick with our di... Sat, 5 Sep 2015 17:56:22 EST Beck Trek - Chapter 6 - Week 2 - Day 8 Create Time and Energy WOW! Week 2 ALREADY. <BR> <BR> Beck starts out with GET Set: Prepare to "Diet". Beck says that by the end of THIS week, we will be better equipped to start a diet than ever before...TRUTH! I'm still going strong and I had to be on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being MOST unlikely to succeed, a 10+!!! And HERE I am, this morning's weight was 118.6 and I am NOT miserable! <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> Okay, at this point we take a moment and think how we have changed over this past week. I DO ... Fri, 4 Sep 2015 18:03:06 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 7 - Arrange Your Environment Day 7 is HERE and we are not even to the FUN part---DOING the Beck Solution per se and I do hope you are all enjoying this as much as I am! It is SO good to be doing this! And with all of YOU! SO many great blogs to read and that was what I enjoyed so much my first round. It was when I learned that reading about maintenance and Beck and HEALTH was what really helped me to REACH maintenance and STAY on it without being MISERABLE! I have told you all before how old I am (67) and that many ... Thu, 3 Sep 2015 19:46:22 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 6 - Find a Diet Coach Well, here we are at Day 6 today! There are SO many wonderful blogs out there...I HAVE been reading them all but not always commenting while I am "catching up" which I am hoping will be this week. We (John and I) have been SO tired and we agree we will NOT go anywhere more for awhile...just to get haircuts tomorrow and to the postponed church function all day this Sunday. It helped so much today being here. I got all my steps and a LOT of work done here. FEELS was 92 F out he... Wed, 2 Sep 2015 19:48:10 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 5 Eat Slowly and Mindfully Another late night blog! Today was the LAST day we have to be gone at all much less ALL DAY. This old woman <em>334</em> is is 8:55 pm and a lot of you know I usually get up at 2:30 or 3 am so this is LATE for me! UGH! <BR> <BR> That said, today is Eat Slowly and Mindfully <BR> <BR> And I absolutely do that. I have for a long time! It was just my confession the other day of "picking" an veggies as I made my meal that was my "downfall" and I don't do it anymore but it is j... Tue, 1 Sep 2015 21:13:39 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 4 GIVE Yourself Credit Sorry I am so late again...but today will be the LAST computer day. Dell is on both John's and my computers getting the Anti-virus programs all taken care of. Gotta love Microsoft it is THEIR error but I have to deal with it! UGH But that is why I always take Dell's tech support package. It's worth its weight in GOLD or PLATINUM evern! He got mine (they go on remotely) all fixed up perfect and now is on John's. <BR> <BR> Today is Give Yourself Credit. I have been reading blogs on it a... Mon, 31 Aug 2015 19:47:28 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 3 I'M BACK! No, things are not perfect but ONE computer is up to Windows 10 so I have relaxed a lot! Those few of you that went to Beck with me know what a scaredy cat and easily torqued out person I am. I'm getting better but this showed me not better enough <em>334</em> but it's SO good to be back with you! <BR> <BR> I am skipping right over the two days that worked the program but didn't really blog it. I will mention that the two "diets" (HATE that word as I did the first time) I ch... Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:15:59 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week Update Not quite what I had promised yesterday but at least I am now holding my head above water! Slenderella61 had emailed me a day or two ago (?) and I JUST replied to her, so am posting it here so you all know what is up.... <BR> <BR> <BR> "I am feeling today like my nose is above water but won't be totally out for probably a day or two....BUT I appreciate you more than EVER....gone tomorrow to all day church function but MONDAY I am back...but I AM WORKING the program just can't blog it or su... Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:56:51 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 Just stopping in quickly...gone all day across state again! We will be home-bodies for quite a while now we are both beat! But I will do my two catch-up blogs tomorrow Chapter 5 and Day 1 separately tomorrow. <BR> <BR> We have not only been gone an unusually long period of days but I am still having "issue" with my computer. UGH. This is MY computer (my fav) and I WILL get it back to health. But it is driving me nuts for the time being and it is Windows 7...I have the link to upgrade t... Fri, 28 Aug 2015 22:55:58 EST Bonus Blog Today.... Meeting the BEST! Good evening everyone. Today was another LONG day here. As I told you I was meeting my SECOND ever Spark friend. It was again <em>345</em> to meet another friend! John and I drove to Tawas (over by the "BIG LAKE" - Huron) and met Linda in a restaurant there....and ate lunch. Most of you know me by now from my other blogs that I am PRETTY introverted (shy, even) about meeting people in person or even talking on the phone....I have been putting off Linda for three years, I am no... Thu, 27 Aug 2015 21:19:59 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 4 - How to Use the Beck Diet Solution Each day we read in PREPARATION for THE DIET I get more excited! There are so many EXCELLENT and <em>345</em> awesome blogs out there that detail today's chapter that I am not going into the whole thing....just examples of good ones I have seen today are WATERMELLEN and ONEKIDSMOM and SLENDERELLA61 will be doing one soon. I will expound later but this is a short blog for now. <BR> <BR> Beck tells us THIS program is designed to help us SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT HAVE MADE DIETING DIFFICULT... Thu, 27 Aug 2015 10:17:24 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 3 - How Thin People Think WOW! After problems all day with Microsoft Security Essentials....I FINALLY found a site that had one of their handy "FIX IT" buttons on it and I "think" it is fixed now and reinstalled correctly! But, I hold judgment until tomorrow morning when I begin again and run a new full scan. <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> That said, I was actually ready to blog early and do this chapter. This IS after all the point of Beck! Learning "How Thin People Think!" And, again, I feel like I am definitely ... Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:15:18 EST Beck Reboot Chapter 2 There are SO many great blogs out there on ALL of the Beck Reboot by so many wonderful people that have done Beck before (one or many times) that it amazes me. <BR> <BR> Today's Beck, and honestly though I believed that I REMEMBERED every word of it from the FIRST time, I realized now as I read that it is all coming back in a flood through the floodgates of my memory each day! This, my friends, proves that it is and will always be a <BR> n almost mandatory and continuous requirement (at l... Tue, 25 Aug 2015 18:20:14 EST Beck Reboot Day 1 Chapter 1 Sorry I am so late (as usual it would seem anymore). I did begin by reading the first assignment and am here for exactly make sure that I never LOSE this whole concept. I told EVERYONE that would listen to me the first time around that I would redo often to get it down into the CELLS of my whole body. <BR> <BR> In the first pages she instills in us that this is about CT cognitive therapy and first, the sabotaging thoughts we have about foods and eating. She says we can be rid of... Mon, 24 Aug 2015 20:20:28 EST Before I START the Beck Reboot! I decided today to put down WHERE I am at and the STEPS that I could remember/retrieve along the way. I plan to put this list into my phone too as a permanent reminder of WHERE I came from! <BR> <BR> We are ALL getting SO excited for the Beck Reboot to begin! There are four of us that I can name that ARE maintaining <em>2</em> I am almost EMBARRASSED to put my name down with theirs....there are others but the four of us have been "close" in Beck from doing together before and "just beca... Sun, 23 Aug 2015 14:57:40 EST Short Blog - Are YOU Going to Join US??? OK I want to put this out there early....yesterday was a wash....what I mean is my internet washed out...more weird weather out even for MI. Storms blew up from NOWHERE and we had been gone all day again...the temp dropped like 20 degrees throughout the day! I hate erratic days like that! <BR> <BR> I WILL yet list all of Bob's recipes so anyone can look them up there but I wanted to share what SLENERELLA61 and I have been "cooking up". It started out by me casually mentioning that I am re... Fri, 21 Aug 2015 11:17:25 EST The Skinny Rules -- THE MENUS -- Bob's Own This will be a blog for SOME of the Recipes that Bob gives that seem EXTREMELY healthy and GOOD....I will try for a couple days to post at least some of the other or names of them because we can probably look up most of them on the web. <BR> <BR> I also wanted to say that SLENDERELLA61 and I plan to begin Beck Pink again...on Monday of next week and we are BOTH pumped up about it. That said, a few other people also decided to jump on the bandwagon and the MORE the MERRIER! So, if anyone i... Wed, 19 Aug 2015 20:39:15 EST The Skinny Rules -- THE MENUS -- Cont'd Finally, I am back to these. I was actually stressing over this (most of you "know me" by now) because there are so many pages of menus he posts and Information Boxes sprinkled throughout and I was afraid of being on these blogs for a YEAR...believe me, it would be BORING....I again contacted my "coach" and lifesaver, Marsha and she agreed. SO what I will do is definitely post the information boxes and the rest of the MENUS...BUT will list the titles of his recipes and any EXCEPTIONAL ones... Tue, 18 Aug 2015 20:15:08 EST
