Haha, you can call me Kat. :D I hate my real name, and nobody calls me by it but my parents, not even my boyfriend. I haven't bought the Beck diet book yet but I was intrigued because my therapist uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with me, and it really helps, so I thought this might too. I'll probably buy the book when I get back from a trip I'm going on in a few days. (Going to be gone two weeks, phew!)
And yep, the only thing that made me finally work up the nerve to hit 'post' on my intro message was realizing that everybody on this site either is struggling with weight or has struggled, so that's a relief to be in company of the same kind.
Thank you all so much for the kind welcome!
