Facebook has a Beck Diet Solution group. A suggestion I read there was to put the cards on your computer so that each day one will come up. Sort of like a thought of the day. I think she had them on her Outlook page. Not sure about the details. But, that might be an idea of how to use the Beck cards.

I guess for me, I've pretty much been doing them mentally. That works better for me, but I'm pretty cognitive with this stuff anyway.

I've more or less burned mine into my memory. I read my list of reasons and response cards everyday since I picked up the book, and at several times throughout.

They are helping me immensely when I crave sugar. I think I may be showing signs of hypoglycemia and it's tough when I feel low and crave something sugary.

I've gotten into the habit of telling myself, "Look, it may seem like a cookie is a quick fix for this, but you may end up doing more harm than good. Plus, you'll be sorry either way after you eat it. Just hold out of a few minutes and find something better to eat."

And that's just what I've been doing. I've scheduled an appointment with my doctor to see if we can figure out what's going on with my blood sugar, but in the meantime I'm steering clear or at least limiting my sugar intake.

Still, it's really hard to resist cookies or sweets when you feel so exhausted and you know your blood sugar's low, but I'd have to say that these active response cards work pretty darn well. I've already lost weight too. ^_^

Truth is I haven't taken them out of the back of my workbook. I look at them when I read the chapter and day. But, I don't use them. I guess, I'm not sure how exactly to use them.

You know, I've gotten out of the habit of using them. I think I need to take them out of my purse and in front of my face. Thanks for the reminder!
