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!

Judi

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

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!!
