Beck Reboot Chapter 5 - Week 1 - Day 5 – I’d Eat Mindfully if I Hadn’t Lost It

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      6 comments

My mind that is! It has been a crazy day. It has NOT been the best day for being mindful about eating. Like sitting, I have a hard time with being mindful. I found this definition of mindfulness online: mind·ful·ness ˈmīn(d)f(ə)... Read more

Saturday, August 29, 2015      10 comments

I love that Dr. Beck stresses that any diet will do! She stresses that the goal of every diet – no matter how fantastical – is to reduce the number of calories you consume. This is so important to remember, because it is not the diet fad t... Read more

Friday, August 28, 2015      18 comments

When I was 40 years old and over 200 pounds I went to see an internist for a general physical. He took all of my vitals, listened to my heart, and then sat down with me to review my family medical history. And the list goes: Type II Diabetes ... Read more

This chapter seemed to serve primarily as a pep talk – a last push of persuasion to those who might still be on the fence about deciding whether or not to follow the Beck program. In reading the “In Session with Dr. Beck” section I was st... Read more

Beck Reboot Chapter 3: I AM a thin person, therefore I THINK like one?

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      13 comments

Not very far into reading chapter three, I began to realize that I am a thin person in more than physical appearance. I am not one to often give myself credit, but the feeling that came over me as I read Beck’s list of questions was one of co... Read more

Beck Reboot Day 2 -- My Flabby Mind

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      20 comments

My “resistance muscle” got flabby! I know, because yesterday, I used it, and today I can feel it. It was like running for the first time after an illness when I am so conscious of every little thing – breathing, footfalls, pain. I... Read more

Beck Reboot Day 1

Monday, August 24, 2015      15 comments

In reading Chapter 1 of Beck Pink, one phrase leapt off the page at me: “It matters every single time.” Beck listed this phrase as one example of an answer to sabotaging thoughts. I am reading the book for the first time during what is ess... Read more

It Must Be Close to St. Patrick's Day 'Cause I'm A Lucky Girl!

Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

This morning, my husband asked me how far I have to go before I will call it good. I said that I really don't know. He is a doctor, so of course he asked me how much I have to lose to be at a healthy BMI. At 5'5" I can weigh at most 150 pound... Read more

De Ja Vu Epiphany

Friday, July 15, 2011      1 comments

Yes I know I have had this epiphany before -- many times. At almost 41 it is something I have known my whole life. Yet even I -- in a pinch -- lose sight of reality. This time is no different. The pinch is from my clothes as they become tigh... Read more
