Beck Pink Reboot, When to Stop Losing and Start Maintaining

Friday, October 09, 2015      9 comments

I have to admit, I'd hoped to lose some weight with this Beck Trek. And: I haven't. And: I'm probably going to have to acknowledge that maintaining at 145 (within a range of 3 pounds) is probably my lowest maintainable weight. It's not m... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 42, Practice!

Thursday, October 08, 2015      22 comments

OK then: I've gotta keep on keeping on (and yesterday was much much better). Tough patches are temporary: in fact, Beck says so today. And I do have the skills, really I do, to keep on maintaining. To keep on thinking like a thin pe... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 41, Make a New To-Do List

Wednesday, October 07, 2015      21 comments

If I stop practicing my Beck techniques, I won't likely maintain my weight. Key for me (and on my new "to do"): 1. Arrange my environment (hiding the peanut butter helps!); 2. Preplan my food and exercise; 3. Sit down to e... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 40, Enrich My Life

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      17 comments

What am I waiting for? I can enrich my life right now. I don't have to wait until I've lost weight. I don't have to wait until I deserve it. Beck suggests enriching our lives by thinking about what we want to accomplish, selecting ... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 39, Keep Up With Exercise

Monday, October 05, 2015      20 comments

I could be doing better with this. I'm very active: was on my feet all day every day birding last week. Golf. Ski. My spontaneous exercise is high too. But I need to be making better use of my gym membership! More planned exe... Read more

Beck Pink Reboot Day 38, Deal With a Plateau

Sunday, October 04, 2015      18 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      18 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      20 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
