I make my own cards Kelly. I use index cards and I like to use colored pencils.
So, if I were trying to keep myself from rooting around the fridge, I might write something like...
TEMPTED TO ROOT AROUND THE FRIDGE? I WOULD RATHER WAIT FOR MY NEXT PLANNED MEAL OR SNACK AND LOSE WEIGHT!
or I might write a list:
DISTRACTIONS WHEN I AM TEMPTED TO ROOT AROUND IN THE FRIDGE: - AM I REALLY HUNGRY? - HOW LONG UNTIL MY NEXT MEAL/SNACK? - WILL THIS HELP ME OR IS SOMETHING ELSE BOTHERING ME? - HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER I EAT THIS UNPLANNED SNACK?
I hope this helps. Speak to yourself. Try to be kind but direct. Pretend you were trying to say just the right thing to a close friend who was trying to lose weight.
Sparkfully Yours, Judi

I am going to create Response Cards using MS Word to print on Avery 3" x 5" cards, too. I couldn't find the cards online when I looked, but the charts are available to download www.beckdietsolution.com/cbt-workshe et s/

I have all my response cards saved on my computer. I basically wrote them up in MS Word and set it up so I can print them on 3x5 index cards. If you want, I can email the files to you, though they are somewhat personalized to my specific issues.
