  • PCOS & Sometimes it's not what you eat so much as what you're not.

    9/3/2015 1:12:30 PM, by DOTSLADY

    My hair's been falling out by the handfuls the past few months. Trying to not be mortified about it as I pick up each strand on the dark bathroom tile and dark bathroom rug. I've had high testosterone for years. Doctors have only said, "that'll help you with muscle" ... as I've lost muscle not exer... Read more

  • Ramblings About Diets and Success

    8/30/2015 1:59:42 PM, by CINDILP

    A comment I forgot to make about the two diets. I love reading other members Sparkpages. I get so inspired by other members and what they are doing. If I see something interesting someone has written I'll check their Sparkpage to find out more about them. One of the things I find interesting ... Read more

  • Sitting Down to Eat, not including the car.

    8/30/2015 1:02:14 PM, by CINDILP

    When I did the Beck Diet Solution before I only had the workbook. I didn't get the book until more recently. The workbook has everything in it. And it also has my notes and ramblings. It's nice to see what I did before. I'd forgotten about this one until I saw my notes from previous times. Sit... Read more

  • Two Diets

    8/29/2015 10:20:19 PM, by CINDILP

    I've been thinking about this one. It's a subject I keep returning to. Lately my diet has been Spark People and tracking. Judith Beck talks about the two kinds of diets. There are eating plans and then there is counting. As I think about it, I need both, but I need flexibility within my plan. I know... Read more

  • Reboot Day 4

    8/27/2015 10:45:13 PM, by CINDILP

    I am already dieting. I've kind of been working on this and have settled on what works for me. It's a mix of several approaches. It's keeping my portions down and it's tracking. I'm not doing low carb entirely. I eat carbs, but I try to limit them, especially gluten carbs. Truth is I remember when I... Read more

  • Day 3 Think Like a Thin Person

    8/26/2015 11:01:04 PM, by CINDILP

    Today's chapter was about how thin people think. One statement made in the book says that "thin people are careful about what they eat." I remember reading somewhere someone who followed a thin friend through her day. She ate small amounts or didn't eat at times because she wasn't hungry or she didn... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Reboot Day 2

    8/25/2015 10:44:05 PM, by CINDILP

    Sabotaging thoughts. Hummmm. Eating is not automatic. That is something that I had to stop and think about. We think of eating as automatic, an involuntary process, but we have a choice and there is an underlying thought. Triggers. I can talk about triggers. I have a hard day and I go to ... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Reboot Day 1

    8/24/2015 11:12:31 PM, by CINDILP

    I have to admit that I nearly didn't read the chapter. I've studied CBT and I use it daily in my work with clients, so I thought I can skip it. I'm also tired and have things to do. I am so glad I didn't skip reading the chapter. When I did the Beck Diet Solution before I didn't have the book and I ... Read more

  • I freaked out on my husband today

    8/16/2015 7:27:31 PM, by TIFFA409

    He always SAYS he wants to lose weight and help me to lose weight. Unfortunately his actions do say the same thing. He always suggests/asks for completely unhealthy foods or says he wants to go out to eat or pick up dinner. It is so not helpful. He actually starts to whine sometimes! So, ... Read more

    yesterday was a good day! It was my last day of working summer school, my mom's birthday, and I took my oldest son to see Joan Jett & the blackhearts! A few weeks ago I gave a coworker my old omron pedometer to compete w my steps on my Fitbit. It has helped, we have both lost about 4 pounds. Over ... Read more

  • Copycat panera strawberry poppyseed salad

    8/14/2015 12:54:28 AM, by TIFFA409

    I am in love with panera's poppyseed salad! Lots of fresh greens, 4 kinds of fruit, and chicken. I choose to leave of the pecans because I just don't care for them. With the help of my dear frien Pinterest, I found a copycat recipe that I cannot wait to try. I got my husband to grill up 2 lbs of ... Read more

  • Making My Diet

    8/9/2015 2:33:19 PM, by CINDILP

    I've been struggling with the whole diet issue. No one diet fits me exactly. So, why not make my own. I went back to an old fad diet I used when my kids were younger (years before Spark). Back then I never used it as written, but used it for the basis of meal planning. I am using it to start my mea... Read more

  • Back to 160-ville - It Sure Looks Different Now!

    8/7/2015 10:56:38 AM, by CARROT143

    The year was 1996 - Clinton was nearing the end of his 1st term of presidency then won against Bob Dole, Alanis Morrisette had "A Jagged Little Pill". They caught the Unabomber. The English Patient was the best movie but I never liked it. That November I got married and hoped it was forever. And 199... Read more
