I can't seem to find an on-going introduction thread and I wanted to make sure I properly introduced myself before I jump into any threads.
My name is Valerie and I lost between 25-30 lbs. about 3-4 years ago, using Beck a lot of that time. I don't even remember what happened, but I never finished the book (stopped during week 2! Doh!) and over the period of about a year put all the weight back on. ARGH!!!!
I've been trying off and on since then to get the weight back off, doing everything from Atkins to South Beach to whole, unprocessed foods and nothing has stuck. The bottom line is that NOTHING has ever worked besides counting calories and exercising. So I pulled out my Beck book and started over from page one. I just finished day 1 and redid my Advantages card (interesting to see that my reasons have changed).
I hope to get to know you all and stay inspired!
