Beck Pink Reboot Day 9, Select an Exercise Plan
Not doing well with this.
I do exercise -- but fairly informally
I rack up my 1,000 minutes a month of exercise -- but a lot of it is golf and (in the winter) XC skiing.
I have a gym membership, used to attend 5 mornings a week at... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 8, Prepare to Diet
Many of us (me included) have been a bit resistant to the use of the word "diet".
And in particular to the notion that dieting takes time and effort.
And moreover, that dieting actually is "for life".
Gotta say, though, that o... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 7, Arrange My Environment!
"I can resist anything but temptation": it's right there on my Spark Page and it's true.
And in my view, resisting temptation is highly overrated.
The ability to resist temptation gets predictably fatigued over the course of a day. ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 6, Find a Diet Coach

And: I like the concept of Beck Buddies -- less hierarchical -- which Beck introduces in Beck Blue and Beck Green.
But the incomparable SLENDE... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 5, Eat Slowly and Mindfully
It takes 20 minutes to be aware that I've had enough food.
(Not, to feel "full". I don't actually want to feel "full" as in "stuffed". Don't like that stuffed feeling any more . . . ).
Twenty minutes in which I don't want to keep rig... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 4, Give Myself Credit!
Well, can't give myself credit for eating every bite sitting down yesterday.
Got seduced by a free sample of hemp seeds in the organic section of the grocery store yesterday.
They are DELISH!! And: I bought a package -- especially ni... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Day 3, Eat Sitting Down
This is a KEY KEY skill.
I know it.
And for me, maybe the one that is most often MIA.
I know that I need to "do it anyway", even if I don't like using a diet skill.
I know that I should give myself credit every time I DO eat... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Day 2, Pick Two Reasonable Diets
OK, this is easy for me.
Beck says there are two types of diets: the set eating plan and the counting system.
But in fact I have a pretty set eating plan (I eat the same stuff day after day)AND I count too. So I combine the two appro... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Chapter 5 Get Ready with the ARC
Preparation , preparation, preparation.
Beck tells us that most people start a diet by plunging right into it, losing some weight, encountering challenges, and giving up.
But if I prepare for the inevitable challenges before I actually... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Chapter 4, How to Use the Beck Diet Solution
OK, not time to start the diet yet. We don't start the actual diet, in fact, until Day 15.
We're still working on building our diet skills. Two weeks of prep time.
Because: any (reasonable) diet will work. Anybody can lose weight ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Chapter 3, How Thin People Think
Thin people can distinguish between hunger and the desire to eat for other non-fuel related reasons.
Thin people can tolerate hunger and cravings. Hunger is not an emergency!! Next meal is coming soon!!
Thin people don't enjoy the fe... Read more
Bonus Beck Blog: Chapter 2
(Typically given my work schedule I'm going to be reading and posting "the night before" as we work through SLENDERELLA's assignment list: particularly busy time at the moment.)
So: SLENDERELLA suggests that I've probably already learned to... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Chapter 2, What Really Makes You Eat
What I think is what makes me eat.
Not automatic shoveling food into my mouth.
There's always a thought that comes first -- and too often it's a sabotaging thought.
I deserve that piece of cake. Every body els... Read more

And yup, this WILL work for each one of us. despite those diverse individua... Read more
Off the Blocks Before the Starter's Pistol!
Apologies that I inadvertently jumped out of the gates with yesterday's blog on Chapter 1, thinking that we (and our numbers are swelling!!!) were planning to start Day One on Monday August 24.
So I'll be getting in sync with the sequence ... Read more
