Beck Pink Reboot Day 37, Reduce Stress

Again, it's about sequence. To reduce stress, it he... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 36, Believe It
In 2000 I weighed 230 pounds. At least! More than that I'm pretty sure: because I was so disgusted with myself I didn't weigh myself until I'd lost probably 10 pounds at least.
And last time I weighed myself (last Saturday, before setting... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 35, Get Ready To Weigh In
I'm still "on the road" and I didn't bring my scale with me.
So: won't be able to comply tomorrow: but will weigh Sunday morning. Because when I'm home I do (as a maintainer) weigh every day.
And whether the scale is down or not: I'v... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 34, Solve Problems
Once again, Beck is brilliant at sequencing.
What's one key technique for eliminating emotional eating? It's solving the problems that trigger the emotional eating.
Instead of eating because I'm sad: figure out why I'm sad, and deal w... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 33, Eliminate Emotional Eating
Hunger is not an emergency: "got" that one. Most of the time!
But: NO emotion is an emergency that requires self-medication with food.
For some reason, this is a concept which has really struck me powerfully this time through Beck.

Beck Pink Reboot Day 32, Prepare for Travel
We are still on the road, and so far the preparation has worked well for this Beck trek!
But: I am noticing that spending a lot of time with DH I'm more exposed to what he eats: and more tempted to eat more than usual myself.
Our "gues... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 31, Decide About Drinking
Now how hilarious is it that I'm in wine country for fall birding migration when this particular lesson comes up??
I'm not a big drinker ever, but I do enjoy a glass of wine maybe twice a week: tracked of course.
And last night tried P... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 30, Stay in Control When Eating Out
Most of the time, anyhow.
(There was that flourless molten chocolate cake episode last weekend after golf, remember?)
But it's very very rare for me to eat out at all. Except at the golf course, where I can get (and almost ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 29, Resist Food Pushers
First of all: scale encounter this morning shows me down 2 pounds from start day and down 2.5 pounds from yesterday.
What predictably it would be given what I've been doing, working the Beck vigorously. Gahhhhhh. Such anguish yesterday, ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 28, Get Ready to Weigh In
I'm not trying to lose weight. I'm trying to maintain.
But still, but still: I think that I OUGHT to lose weight because I'm working Beck pretty hard.
And I do weigh every day anyhow (as a maintainer) and right now I'm UP ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 27, Master the Seven Questions Technique
Well, I never have.
And (tiny streak or rebellion continues) I'm not persuaded that I ever will. Or that it would be useful if I did.
The concept of "mastering" anything is . . . not me.
And this feels like a plunge further int... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 26, Recognize Thinking Mistakes
This for me is Beck's "heart of darkness" coming up.
She's asked us first to think about "it's not fair": and how unfair is it that so many of my Beck buddies don't suffer from this one when I do?? NOT FAIR!!! (Oh well!!)
She's aske... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 25, Identify Sabotaging Thoughts
Dr. Beck certainly identifies a whole lot of common sabotaging thoughts. The kind of sabotaging thoughts that result in me deciding to eat something not on my plan. Beyond, "It's unfair." Such as "Dieting is too hard"; or "I don't care"; or "I... Read more
Sinigang: Bonus Soup Blog
Sinigang is a Filipino soup on a tamarind, mango and chicken theme.
Yesterday I saw tamarind pods marked down from $3.99 to .99 at my local grocery store and picked up a package. Then I googled the internet for a way to use them with other... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 24, Deal with Discouragement
Remember that ol' song, "Home on the Range"?
As a maintainer, I try to stay within a reasonable range of weight.
But can't honestly say that maintenance actually IS that place "Where seldom is heard a discouraging word/And the skies a... Read more
