Hello and Welcome!

The planning is such a big part of Beck and it is so helpful! (I'm on an eating rampage this month, but I have made a promise to myself to get back on track by May 1st. Usually the time to do it is "now" but I have reasons, and I am giving myself another week.)

Glad to have you on the team. We have a great group. Browse around on the boards to see what's happening, and let me know if you need any guidance!


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!

Hi everyone. I've had the Beck diet book for a few years, and this is my third time to start it. I haven't made that much progress with any of my (short-lived) diet goals over the past five years. At this point, I'm 30, 10-15 pounds overweight, and at the beginning of a trend that won't end well!! I used to be able to discipline myself and stick to a plan, but in the past five years, it's like I've gotten this idea that I can just eat whatever I feel like whenever I want, and there aren't going to be any consequences. I'll tell myself I'm going to crack the whip, but after 2-3 days, I give up and go back to my bad habits.

I've figured out that a big part of it is that I completely fail to make any plans. I leave for work without a packed lunch, and then I wonder why I keep hitting the unhealthy snacks in the breakroom. I don't go to the grocery store on the weekend, and then I wonder why I keep stopping for fast food after work.

I have a stressful and overwhelming job, and to be honest, I think I'm acting like kind of a brat by indulging myself with food because I "deserve" it. Well, that's not a good plan for the future, and I need to learn a new way to live before 15 pounds turns into 50.

I'm really interested in connecting with people in this group, because I think having a personal connection with someone who shares my goals and journey is going to help keep me focused on the fact that this is a worthwhile goal, even if sometimes it's the last thing I want to be doing.

So... hello!!
