I have belonged to Spark for over 2 years. A friend from another team keeps bragging on the Beck book so when I saw there is a team which another friend belongs to which is the beck Diet Solution i decided to join. I have reached my goal weight but still have temptations mainly with sweets.

Welcome! My start on Beck was a very sudden thing. I joined a group meeting by teleconference, and I had to decide - am I "in" or not! So I did it very, very carefully, and it really worked for me.
Then after about a year, I got sloppy, and did not follow all of the things I learned. I did enough to keep off the weight I lost, but I stopped feeling like it was possible to lose weight.
Now (about two weeks ago) I decided to go back to Beck! I am reading, writing, thinking, all of those really effective Beck things. I have only lost about a pound, but I FEEL very different. I feel like I am DOING this!
Our team is great! I hope you will come around and meet everyone on the Daily Check In.
Sparkfully Yours, Judi
Dear Spark Friends, I may not always write back about everything each person posts, but I am really interested in you! If you ever need me, send me a Spark Mail and I will always answer!
Welcome! I can tell you that I started and stopped the program at least 2-3 times (half-heartedly). Then, when I was finally motivated to do the program and commit completely, it was absolutely as effective as Dr. Beck claims. I continue to read my cards daily, and work on techniques as needed. And I'm slowly making progress! If you really want to do this, dig down deep and make the committment, go whole-hog, and you will meet your goals. Good luck!
p.s. You'll be happy to see that many of Dr. Beck's techniques are similar to SparkPeople articles and recommendations. Great minds think alike!
