Beck Day 28 - Weigh In
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      4 comments

Well, I did not do what Beck suggested. I woke up at 5am and weighed. I was 128.8, same as yesterday. I feel back asleep. I woke up and voided and felt skinny. I know she says not to weigh more than once a day. It is a sure sign of obsession. I ... Read more

Day 25 - Dealing with Sabotaging Thoughts
Sunday, February 06, 2011      5 comments

Yesterday I had a bunch of sabotating thoughts centered around the scale. Actually it was more like doubt, self doubt, and confusion rather than real sabotage. I weighed in at Weight Watchers two full pounds above my weight the week before. I we... Read more
Beck - Day 24 Continued; Preparing for 25, 26, and 27
Saturday, February 05, 2011      6 comments

One suggestion in chapter/day 24 is to add up the hours that you struggle. Beck's point is that often the struggle is between 20 minutes and 2 hours several times a week; most of the time the dieters are not struggling. I think this is a very go... Read more
