Beck Pink Reboot Day 38, Deal With a Plateau

Sunday, October 04, 2015      16 comments

Weighed myself this morning on my routine from our week away birding: steady at 145. Wah wah wah wah. I expected to lose weight. I deserved to lose weight. That's what I weighed before we left. I've been super busy and active... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 37, Reduce Stress

Saturday, October 03, 2015      20 comments

Losing weight and maintaining weight loss isn't easy. It's not. And to create mental space within which I can exercise my Beck techniques, Beck reminds me that I need to reduce stress. Again, it's about sequence. To reduce stress, it he... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 36, Believe It

Friday, October 02, 2015      27 comments

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

Thursday, October 01, 2015      17 comments

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

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      19 comments

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

Tuesday, September 29, 2015      28 comments

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. ... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 32, Prepare for Travel

Monday, September 28, 2015      19 comments

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

Sunday, September 27, 2015      15 comments

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

Saturday, September 26, 2015      28 comments

I do. 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

Friday, September 25, 2015      19 comments

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

Thursday, September 24, 2015      22 comments

Blech. 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

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      19 comments

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

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      16 comments

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

Monday, September 21, 2015      20 comments

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

Sunday, September 20, 2015      15 comments

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
