Hi! I'm Liz, and I just started the Beck Diet Solution. I hit Day 6 today, so I figured I'd poke around a bit and see who else is doing this (hoping to find a buddy/coach).
A little about me...I live in Northern Japan, where I teach English. I've been overweight since graduating from college, but when I got to Japan, I gained 15 pounds. People here were shocked when I told them I gained weight in Japan! Well, that was a wake up call for me, so I started hitting it with the exercise and cutting out sugar and stuff. I've found great support here on Spark, especially with the BLC group. I've lost about 27 pounds so far, but came to a screeching halt in September. I've got plenty of excuses, but the most important thing is that I'm ready to get this party started again and take on the final 12-22 pounds.
A friend recommended the Beck Diet solution after following my diet journal on another site for a while. What she said made sense, so here I am! I'm excited to meet you guys, and looking forward to learning lots from all my senpais (a Japanese word for someone ahead of you at school, or work, or life).
By the way, I never realized how challenging sitting down to eat would be! I never realized how much I graze.
Well, I guess I'll finish this novel now and go poke around this team a little more!
