I first heard about The Beck Diet Solution from a fellow teacher at a conference last year. Browsing through the Goodwill yesterday (looking for a travel book for New Orleans) I saw and picked up a copy. I read the first four chapters this morning, and am anxious to get started. Although JBeck says to allow two weeks to get things figured out, I am already following Sparks food plan and will continue to do that as I figure out the cognitive aspect for weight loss and eating.

Hi, I am very new to this group and the book. I borrowed it from my local library yesterday and now I am going out to buy a copy. I am intrigued and I am hoping that this is what has been missing from my yo-yo dieting through the years.

Thanks.

HI! I'm sam from the Philippines! I am so happy to find the Beck Diet Solution here on SP. I am currently reading the book and I find it very helpful. Today, I didn't do my diet perfectly but I resisted a few of my cravings. I am so happy because I learned from the book that you need to give yourself a credit no matter how small you think your ways are.By the way, I sent a copy of the book to my friend. As a birthday present. I hope it helps her. We are diet buddies since college. This is the best book ever. I hope I can gain some friends from across the world here. I hope we can share knowledge. stories and experiences. Again, i am so glad i found this group on sparkpeople! Good luck to all of us!!! Love you all! emoticon

I was on this team about five years ago or so, though not super active. I have had my ups and down in the past 5 years. Never leaving SP but have been less consistent - especially since my daughter was born in 2010. I just can't stand how I feel anymore, and I know I need to use the tools that are here for me to help me be accountable. Beck Diet Solution and eating clean are the two things I'm trying to use to lose some weight, tone up, and feel more healthy. I'm so sick of every morning saying - this is it - and then by the afternoon, I just give up and eat poorly. So - I'm hoping to get active on this team and get the support I need to make a lifestyle change!

Welcome Vista. My weight history has a lot in common with yours. I am not happy with my recent gain, but it is not nearly all of it back.

I hope Beck works for you. I had a lot of success with it when I started. I have been trying to reconnect to it. It is very logical!

I am new to the Beck team, but not to SP. I found it thru my DIL but didn't use for another year or so. My highest weight has been 250. With lots of help from my over 60s group, I reached 5 lbs under my goal weight, to 145.....for about a minute. Then, last Oct, I went off the wagon completely and am just one lb shy of 190!

Berta suggested I try Beck. Have ordered the book and been reading on the team posts. Trying to reignite the spark!

Good morning evryone.I am new to SP and I am so please that I found it.I am even more delighted to find a CBT approach to changing eating habits. I am a counsellor in addictions yet I have never used this with my own weight issues. This is prob because I never thought of myself as a fatty and unfit...CBT works so well at making you feel good and positive!!
I am now on a change of habit road..I feel positive and know I can do it.I will continue for the journey..ok its only the first week,but the week I have had has been fun and enlightening..If I can help myself and anyone on here I will be pleased as punch..
Lets go and get ready for the change.......

Go Go Go... Ready, Willing and Deeee-termined...

Hey Fellow Beck Folks!

I picked up the book and am halfway through. I am a lifelong dieter...well not as a teen but the last 20 years anyway!

I have to say I am excited about the Beck system because I long ago accepted the fact that dieting is mostly psychological. Cange your thinking, change your behavior. It makes sense!

Tip: I wrote my Advantages Response Card here on Spark in my Planner...the journal part. Hope it doesn't disappear, but I can copy paste it every day on my first read through :-)


Hunger is not an emergency :-)

Hi Everyone! Sorry I did not post my wise advice here! I grabbed it off Batya's page and I am pasting it here too! If anyone wants more advice, I am always happy to help. (Right now I have not been helping myself! But it is always easier to help other people!)

=====
Welcome to the Beck team. While you are waiting for your book, you might want to browse the posts that go day by day through the program. You can find those under the General Team Discussion Forum. Click to see more topics and you will see all the "Days".

The biggest part of getting started is to think about why you want to lose weight. You write a list to keep on a card (or more than one card) that Beck calls the Advantages Response Card (ARC).

I've been floundering lately. I think it might be time for me to work on a new list for myself!

Hi, I'm new to this team but had used the pink Beck book a few years ago and found it really helpful. Drifted away but I'm trying to get back to using the program. Glad to see there is a Beck team on SP.

Hi!

Nice to meet you!

I'm Batya, from Netanya, Israel. I've been on SP for 2 years now, and despite a few good months, have basically got nowhere!! I've decided to try the Beck solution to try and get my compulsive eating under control. I've just ordered the book. Until it comes, could anyone here give me a couple of tips to start off?

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you ...

Anita,

Your post really encouraged me. I too joined SparkPeople years ago and haven't made much if any progress. I just started the Beck Diet Solution and I see how much I need every step in the program. I look forward to more of your post.

We need people like you Anita, since you have done so well! You can inspire us!

I agree that a cognitive approach is the way to go. Originally it worked very well for me. But I have gotten off track. I am working on getting back. But the good news is, with the Beck approach, I can see so many of my new habits that stayed with me!

Hi Beck Team... I joined SparkPeople several years ago and made zero headway. Then in January, I got the Beck Diet Solution, and followed it religiously, hitting my goal weight by May 1... and now I'm continuing, realizing that the goal I'd set needs to be adjusted down a bit more (still belly fat). The Beck Diet Solution has worked better for me than anything else I have ever tried. I KNEW I needed a "psychological" solution to my eating. We all know WHAT we need to do, the challenge is how to get past all the "It's not fair" stuff we say to ourselves that makes us go eat in rebellious resentment. I have gotten past all that with Beck. I joined the group, tho, because here it is 4 months into the program, and I am starting to "forget" to remember. I don't want that to happen. This is not a "diet" with an end-date. I've accepted that this is a lifelong way to THINK about eating... So I'm delighted to have a team out here to continue the journey with and help me remember not to forget. LOL. Thanks for being there, y'all
Anita

It feels like it has been years since I have been here and to be honest it has been. I am at the point that I am tired of endless diet plans and a life that always revolves around food. Knowing how to diet and exercise isn't an issue for me! Its my stinkin thinken. That being said I dusted off my Beck book and read the introduction. I am ready to learn how to be a successful dieter! So glad to find this group is still here and active and looking forward to getting to know all of you better. Diana emoticon

Hi, I'm Izzi, and I'm just starting with this program. I'm getting married at the beginning of August, and I'd really like to get a handle on my weight before then. I've tried Weight Watchers and Jenny in the past and I always do well in the beginning and then just get...tired. I'd like to stop dealing with this issue once and for, so I'm hoping the Beck solution will really make an impact. I've carved out time to exercise and get enough sleep, and I'm going to work hard to post here regularly. If anyone is looking for a daily Beck buddy (to email daily weight, success with the strategies, etc.), let me know!

Hi Nola.

I have a very special young cousin named Nola! (She is my cousin's daughter, born when my cousin was over 50! Quite a miracle! And she is adorable and fabulous! I can't believe she is 10 now!)

Anyway, welcome! (I got off on a tangent!)

Welcome, Deena!! I also hope to use Beck concepts to support long term maintenance, although I was still hoping to lose another pound or two (attainable vs. maintainable?? Hmmm???) Glad you are with us.

Hi, I'm Deena from Jerusalem and I started the Beck Diet in September. I have reached goal, and joined SP in order to keep it off and keep learning and growing. I feel that I don't use enough of the Beck techniques these days, and I want to get back into them, as they are very helpful and powerful.

Hi everyone.....I am new to this team....
I am starting day 1 of the Beck Solution tomorrow, Monday my time, and am feeling really blessed that someone from Spark would stop by my page and tell me about this team......

I have just celebrated my 60th birthday in December and have been on Spark for 2 years last week....
I am doing the 5% Spring Challenge...which I am struggling with..scales going the wrong way and also signed up for the BLC 19.....

I live in the South Island of New Zealand....married to a treasure....have 3 kids of my own and a step son....1 grandchild and 2 step grandchildren.....none of the grandchildren live close to us....

I am joining this team so that I can find support as I journey through the Beck Solution and am SOOO looking forward to changing my sabotaging behaviour which has always stopped me either getting to my goals or staying there....
Never too late to change....

Look forward to meeting you all....
Blessings

Welcome to the team! The Beck approach is really great. It helped me a lot when I was losing most of my weight, and even though I am struggling lately, it is still the Beck approach that keeps me reigned in, keeps me coming back, and has me not gaining back the weight!

Hi everyone! I am new and just started the Beck diet. I'm on day 6 and am really liking the approach of the book. Weight loss has always been difficult for me because of my thoughts and thinking patterns, and I am excited to see how my mind changes for the better over these next 6 weeks +. Looking forward to getting to know you all and being part of this team!
