Beck Solution - Day 5

Wednesday, January 12, 2011      8 comments

Eat slowly. Three groups of volunteers ate and established their baseline eating speed. Then they were to take a bite only when the computer beeped. One day they ate twice their normal speed, one day at their normal speed and one day at half the... Read more

Beck Solution - Day Four

Tuesday, January 11, 2011      7 comments

Day Four is all about giving yourself credit. When you choose to sit down to eat, you say to yourself, "good decision." Every time you check something off your day's To Do List, you say "good job". You reflect on your eating behavior whenever yo... Read more

Beck Solution - Day Three

Monday, January 10, 2011      7 comments

Day Three is all about sitting down to eat. Do not stand up to eat. When I first read it I thought that did not apply to me as I never eat standing up. Then yesterday I caught myself as I was putting away food after supper. I did take one more b... Read more

Beck Diet Solution -- Day Two

Sunday, January 09, 2011      10 comments

Day Two of the Beck Diet Solutions is choosing a primary and a back up food plan. (She calls it a diet; I call it a food plan.) She says you need "the one you plan to start with and a second diet in case the first one doesn't work out." All die... Read more

Tweaking the Plans

Saturday, January 08, 2011      10 comments

I was down .8 pounds at Weight Watcher this morn. Hooray!! I've kind of changed a goal. In 2011, I decided I won't worry about being obsessed with the scale. I plan for 2011 to be the year I overcome binge eating. Binging put 6 pounds on m... Read more

The Beck Solution - Part 2

Friday, January 07, 2011      11 comments

In the Beck Diet Solution (accurate subtitle is: train your brain to think like a thin person) you prepare to "diet". I'd prefer to call it developing a healthy lifestyle, but I think the idea of preparing for it makes a lot of sense. The f... Read more

Another Benefit of Healthy Living

Thursday, January 06, 2011      10 comments

I can't prove that my healthier lifestyle is the cause, but I can't think of any other factor to credit. I had a great dental check up yesterday. My gums -- I guess you would say they had been receding -- are all back within the normal range. My... Read more

Out of the Blue

Wednesday, January 05, 2011      8 comments

I was shopping in WalMart, focused on getting things I needed for a presentation to a group of potential Sparkers, frustrated that they didn't have a table top flip chart, when out of the blue an attractive woman about my age stopped me. She ask... Read more

Building a Different Muscle

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      6 comments

I went to Books a Million to buy the new paperback, The Spark, for a friend. While I was there, I saw The Beck Diet Solution on sale for $5.95. The subtitle is something about learning to think like a thin person. I've seen quite a few people bo... Read more

I Did It!

Sunday, January 02, 2011      12 comments

I weighed less this morning than I did on November 20, 2010. I accomplished a No Gain Holiday! So I am celebrating. I'm going to reward myself by buying something I've been wanting a long time: a heart rate monitor. I'm going for the 2011 C... Read more

Enough for Now

Saturday, January 01, 2011      8 comments

I hoped to end 2010 with a profound analysis of my year and start 2011 with a compelling list of goals I'll achieve. Instead, let me just say I did good in 2010. And I'm going to do good in 2011, too. That's enough for now.... Read more

Found a New Food!!

Thursday, December 30, 2010      13 comments

A friend gave me some citrus out of her yard and I was totally confused. They were ruby red on the inside, like ruby red grapefruits, but they were the size of medium oranges and the peel was orange. The taste was kind of between an orange and a... Read more

Turning Point

Tuesday, December 28, 2010      11 comments

Today I was thinking back over turning points in my journey to health and fitness. One time I became very aware that my attitude had changed when I found myself cutting back on my dear old overweight dog's portions. For years I had worried tha... Read more

Getting Better

Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

In 2010 I did a good job with exercise, averaging over 2 times per week strength training and 6 days per week of cardio. I plan to keep that up in 2011, but I have a strategy, not exactly new, to keep me motivated. I plan to track and improve ... Read more

Today is When the Rubber Hits the Road

Sunday, December 26, 2010      9 comments

Today is the day after Christmas, the day after a day of indulgence. I enjoyed every bite -- even the fudge -- especially the fudge. I enjoyed cooking big and I enjoyed sharing the whole meal with my loved ones. By my historical standards, it wa... Read more
