Aloha! I live in Memphis, the Land of Elvis, although I'm a native Wisconsinite. I've been a Spark member for 18 months. I finally have come to the realization after losing weight and watching it come back that I need to change the way I think about what I'm doing. As a scientist, I've had lots of observation of this phenomena!
Like the other members of this team, I was looking for something to help me manage my diet. I've read about mindful eating and other distortions in thinking about food. I'm not in the eating disorder camp. My weight just creeps back up slowly, just as slowly as it went off.
I'm tired of living this way. I found the Beck Diet Solution and purchased my copy off amazon. It sat in. Y briefcase for a month before I cracked the pages.
Today, I'm on Day 8. I must tell the truth that I had skipped the Diet Coach day because I was embarrassed to ask anyone to do that for me. Then this morning while logging my breakfast, I realized that there likely was a team here for The Beck Diet Solution. And Voila! Here I am.
I'm looking forward to digging through this part of Spark People. I've actually been following my primary diet since Sunday. Granted I don't have to start that for another week but I figure the practice will help.
I'm 45. my step-daughter is now 23(we raised her). My husband is retired Navy and is working a civilian job to stay in the manner to which he has become accustomed. I am a flavor chemist and work for a large food company. I make a lot of stuff that tastes bad on the way to making a tasty flavor!
We have a cat (a pretty little 14 year old tabby) and a wonderful scruffy Jack Russel Terror (terror for sure) named TJ. Thats short for Turbo Jack.
Thanks for letting me join this team!
