Beck Day 31 – Drinking
No doubt about it. For me, and more as I age, alcohol makes it harder to lose weight. When my thyroid quit working, my metabolism slowed down, I exercised less (age & retirement), I found it much harder to lose we... Read more

Beck Day 26 – Recognizing Thinking Mistakes
Again, I don’t fool myself, but I don’t always do the right thing either. It’s a choice. I often make the mistake of thinking that I will eat healthier and less if I eat at home. My life ... Read more

Beck Day 24 - Discouragement
