Wed, 8 Jan 2014 19:54:22 EST Maintenance Hey guys, <BR> <BR> I haven't been actively trying to lose weight for quite a while so I would like to see if anyone else is also "maintaining." While losing weight, I was super active with logging calories, which I haven't done in years so my focus is very different.

Fri, 17 Feb 2012 17:04:56 EST New Here! Stress... I'm extremely nervous to be going away to a university and majoring in psychology. Hopefully it'll be in the Spring of 2012 when I transfer with my AAUCT to a university in WA state. Living in a dorm on campus will be such a brand new experience for me, I'm actually quite terrified! I know it's a natural thing, but I'm trying to juggle exercise and diet and my sanity and education all at once! :) Mon, 3 Oct 2011 21:16:47 EST What field of psychology intrests you? I'm more into child psychology..what about you? Sat, 13 Aug 2011 11:40:28 EST Why do you love Psychology? I love almost everything about psychology.

Sat, 13 Aug 2011 11:37:22 EST Hello From Indiana I took a semester of Psychology in high school and fell in love with it..And am looking forward to major in the diverse field of Psychology. Tue, 26 Jul 2011 16:28:14 EST Area of Interest I thought it'd be good to have a thread where we can say what our interest or specialty in psychology is. <BR> <BR> I'm more on the clinical developmental end. I'm most interested in attachment theory (moreso peer than parent) and how it affects self-advocacy. I also have interest in eating disorders, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, and multicultural psychology (with a focus on mental illness and stigma). How about you all? Fri, 1 Jul 2011 08:20:20 EST Why you love Psychology & how to use it in the gym Hi fellow Psychology friends. <BR> <BR> Write down why you love psychology and how you can use it's lessons in the gym. <BR> <BR> I personally love psychology because it's taught me how people come to make stereotype of individuals and groups and how to help combat them. <BR> <BR> 1 problem many of us make when trying to reach our goals is our tendency to have self-serving thoughts and opinions of current state of health (aka self-serving bias). <BR> <BR> Negative aspects of ourselves w...

Glad you could make it. Introduce yourself Introduce yourself here and tell where you are from. Everything is back and running. <em>334</em> Wed, 6 Apr 2011 21:38:33 EST Using Psychology to Lose Weight Is anyone using Psychology to help them lose weight? I just started doing this. I'm reading a book called "Think Thin, Be Thin: 101 Psychological Ways to Lose Weight." I'm also doing positive affirmations. After I finish reading that first book I'm going to read "The Beck Diet Solution: Train Your Brain to Think Like a Thin Person." I realize that losing weight for me has been more mental with me telling myself I can't do things or thinking I can't live without a certain food. What are your m... Wed, 23 Mar 2011 08:17:30 EST School Psychologist I am in need of some opinions: <BR> I am trying to decide whether I want to be a school psychologist, get my PsyD in child and adolescent psychology, or become a LCPC. Does anyone have any experience with any of these careers? What was the best and worst of each one? Any feedback will be extremely helpful, thank you in advance. Thu, 20 Jan 2011 18:38:57 EST Lets use our knowledge Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I am going to be graduating in the fall of 2011 with my B.S. in Psychology with concentrations in clinical psyc and developmental psyc from Georgia Gwinnett College. I hope to go to grad school to get my Masters of Social Work and to eventually work with our military. <BR> I decided to join this site because you can connect with others for support in the weight loss process. As we all should know as a psyc major those who have a strong support network overcome hurdles ... Mon, 17 Jan 2011 11:33:43 EST First Day when people say the first day is the hardest they mean it. im so outta shape i almost quit during my cardio but i stuck it through. yeah theres alotta snacks in the house but im not gonna let them temp me:) i just wanna know who else had a hard first day as well <em>306</em> Mon, 10 Jan 2011 11:01:00 EST Want to be healthy and happy... I am 18 years old and have always been a bit overweight because of how short I am. My best friend and I are on a diet together and I am hoping that if I can pull this off that next year when I go to University with my boyfriend I will be able to make all the other guys jealous of him because he has me all to himself. <BR> -Britt Mon, 3 Jan 2011 18:40:57 EST Do you end up always psychoanalyzing your life? I feel that since I became a psychology major it has really helped me with almost all parts of my life. <BR> <BR> But now I psychoanalyze everything, communications and reactions and stuff. And the people around me! <BR> <BR> I think an understanding of psychology and especially biopsychology has helped me on this weight loss journey. <BR> <BR> On the other hand, I constantly have to tell people I'm a psychology major, not a dream interpreter. Haha!

I've decided i'm not sure if I want to go to graduate school now. I'm taking a break. Not sure what to do next.

Mon, 23 Aug 2010 17:20:00 EST Binge Eating For over a week I was going great with my eating/exercise plan. Then BAM! *emotional trigger*. 4/5 of a tub of soy vanilla icecream, 6 crumpets and 3 pieces of toast later...feeling like crap! <BR> <BR> Has anyone studied binge eating? With my degree I want to help obese people change their brains to allow themselves to be healthier, but I need to fix myself aswell. I want to be able to do this alone and be strong (I go through periods of feeling really strong and then it fizzles). Sat, 24 Jul 2010 06:24:24 EST Hi all. hey everyone I'm new to Spark. Working on my bachelors in psych. right now so thought this would be a good group. Hope to meet some of you fellow psych majors. Thu, 17 Jun 2010 22:32:17 EST Hi Everyone! Hi, I'm Jayme!

Wed, 12 May 2010 16:33:20 EST SP and Behavior Modification Hello all Psych Majors out there! <BR> So, after admitting I'm a total SP junkie lately, I have to say that I've been analyzing the success of this program. In my opinion, this is basic Behavior Modification! <BR> <BR> SP is a token economy. We do this... we get points. The more points we get, we get little trophies. What is the real value of these rewards? it depends to each member. However, it's a REWARD. Each of us is here, counting down (or up depending the point of view) the points we g...

So right now I'd be more of a former psychology major, except that I'm starting with the grad school application process now, so hopefully by the end of next year I'll be an active psychology student again. <BR> <BR> My particular area of interest would be, broadly speaking, the area where psychology o...

Fri, 26 Feb 2010 07:29:03 EST Activities or something!!! I joined this group a little while ago, but have noticed that it's pretty inactive, myself included. I was thinking it'd be fun to do something to interact. Like, for every 30 mins we read we do 5 jumping jacks or something. What do you guys think?? Sun, 7 Feb 2010 10:21:56 EST Hi there! Hi!

Anyhow, it's nice to meet all of you and I hope to catch some interesting conversations from the group. Tue, 22 Sep 2009 19:34:57 EST Hello Everyone!
