Hi Cindi!
I'm just getting started with the BDS, but I had been reading a book called The Four-Day Win: End Your Diet War and Achieve Thinner Peace by Martha Beck. I was actually looking for a group for that book when I put "Beck" into the search engine and found this group. Not realizing it was two different authors, I decided right away to read the BDS and join the group. It was the difference in writing styles that finally got my attention. However, both of these books are excellent in their own ways, and while a mistake led me here, I am still grateful to have found you all!

What are the books you are reading? Who are the Becks? Aaron Beck is Judith's father and the father of CBT.

Duh! I just realized that I am reading books by 2 very different Becks! But I am still going to continue with the BDS.

Thanks for the welcome Judi and Femmebella! emoticon

Hi! I'm Melissa from Alabama. I'm 45 yrs old, very happily married, and homeschooling mom to two young teenagers (a son, 15 and a daughter, 13).

I got serious about my health and weight about 6 months ago, and have lost 46 lbs using the SP food tracker. But I still struggle with a lot of the 'characteristics' that I have been reading about in the Beck Diet Solution. I'm really good (or bad) at rationalizing why I should be able to eat something.

Anyway, I was introduced to Dr. Beck through another of her books, The Four-Day Win. I've been learning so much from it that I decided to invest in her Diet Solution book. I've just really started on this book, and was excited to find this SP team. I look forward to getting to know you and benefiting from your experiences with the BDS!

And thanks to Judi and Sandy for the warm welcome!
