I just wanted to let you all know that I bought the new book. I first saw it mentioned here, then I saw someone mentioning it on the Weight Watchers message boards. I went to Amazon and read the reviews, and that was enough to convince me that it would be a good thing to order. It arrived yesterday, but I didn't see it until this morning. I'm up to page 19 and I read through this thread.

It is encouraging to know that she encourages 1,700 calories a day as a minimum. I have been tracking my calories here on Sparkpeople, and I have actually been staying between 1,300 and 1,600 most days with the occasional 1,800 day. This might account for my slow weight loss. Perhaps I need to eat a tiny bit more on a daily basis. I have been eating very healthfully, but have not had three snacks a day as she appears to be recommending and have also not given myself much in the way of treats. As I continue to read I will figure it out.

I'm not in a hurry this time. And that's probably a good thing.

Madison: That's what I'm wondering about being the best. The daily threads do coincide with the skills in the new book. I think its also a great way to organize things. I also worry that things might get confusing. So, I would say to use the daily threads to organize your work. We can talk about specific issues here, especially as people get further into the new book.

Great job! Yes the Summit is a terror. But it is making me stronger and I feel great after conquering it. emoticon

Oh, a positive thing I did. I have been exercising regularly (doing cardio). Last week I went 5 days and plan on doing the same this week. There is this machine called the Summit (http://us.commercial.lifefitness.com/cont
ent.cfm/summittrainers) It is 100 times harder than the stairmaster. When I first started, I could only do 1 minute. This morning I did 4 minutes! And a total of 20 minutes (I took 30 sec. breaks inbetween doing 1 - 3 min at a time.) My trainer was really impressed and so was I.

Well, I don't have any ideas for reading the cards, unless you set a specific time every day. I know it says to read them right when you get up. I don't do this but do manage to read them at some point. Maybe I will try reading them right when I wake up. Do you want to try that together and report back to each other?

What I have trouble with is eating slowly and calmly. I can usually do this except when I'm at work. We don't get a dinner break so if it's busy I'm lucky if I get to eat at all much less eat slowly. I just have to do the best I can because I can't change how my job is.

Hmmm, I started writing out all the steps and how I did and it seemed really long, unless it will seem to negative for folks I'll stick with what I'm having a little trouble on.

Not using my cards, I like the idea but I just don't have the habit. I'm going to put them by the door and read them before I leave. Forgot to weigh in.

Maybe this is why Beck encourages a phone call? Any ideas to encourage card use are appreciated.

I am also familiar with CBT in my work, I'm a therapist. But, its good to apply it to myself. I like the new book because I think the format is good for people in various situations. I tried following the workbook and found it hard to keep up.

I think if you want to post here when you accomplish a skill or if you want to find the Day threads that are set up around the other book, post there. For example there is a day for recording the advantages for losing weight. To find the whole list just go to the team page, click on General Discussion and you will get a list of all the discussions. Find the one(s) you are working on. That way you can interact with the rest of the team on the skill.

I like this plan! I will report on the 9 skills. I consider myself to be in phase one. I know the skills and I use most of them, some automatically but I'm not consistent and I don't use the cards to talk myself out of extra food and into exercise very often.

It's taken me a long time to get there but I look at schedule for the week (sometimes I'm home late or start very early) and do a plan of 5 dinners and some options for lunches, I usually make a pot of soup every week. My husband and I are grad students so in some ways it helps to be on a tight budget. I get a lot of cooking books from the library around quick, homemade foods (not the cambells soup type stuff) and I use the freezer a lot.

I still do "eat to mood" but I'm working on planning realistically for my taste buds -- not putting in a lot of "I should eat that foods" and it helps a lot.

I have the 9 posted on my web page and will post my reasons for losing weight on the page today.

Hokieleigh... As a team member I would love for you to share if you completed each of the 9 skills for the day and specifically what they are.

I find it motivating to hear about what is accomplished, what works and what one needs help with.

Regarding planning the meals and snacks in advance... I find it helpful to have a loose outline of what I plan to eat. Options for breakfast and protein w/salad and vegetables for lunch and dinner with a list of options for snacks.

Sounds good. I am still on Stage 1 - I need to be consistent with that before I move on. Are you on Stage 2 already? My calorie count is pretty high I think - 2200. Sparkpeople has it around 1500. I'm not counting calories at this point though.

I'm going to post my Advantages to Weight loss on my Spark Page. Should we all do this?

And do we report in to the team f we completed each of the 9 skils for the day? I have a Diet Buddy but he is not dieting or following this program. I'm using her because she is tough and will yell at me to get bacl on track. But I will use people on here too.

As far as what I feel good with - I like all the planning and reading. I am familiar with cognitive therapy (have my msw) so that fits with my thinking. And I feel good about the exercise (never thought those words would come out of my mouth).

My biggest hurdle is planning my meals. I can do 3 meals and 3 snacks but I dont know a day in advance what I will feel like eating the next day. Maybe this will get easier once I start the diet part.

Hi guys, I have been on this site a while and using the old book. I'm starting with the new book. I would be happy to have a place to report on the 10 principles and try to focus on some of the newer stuff. One of my goals for February is to hold my calories consistently at 1700, higher than my "recommended" range but I want to see if eating a little higher most days will prevent those 2500-3000 days from sneaking in.

Any ideas of where to start? Maybe with what we feel good with and what we are having trouble wiht?

Having a thread for the new book might help me read it and get through it. Having someplace to discuss and apply it might help.

I'm also still reading chapter 4 which is Stage 1. Most of the principles are the same ones as in the other book/workbook. Look at the list of discussion topics and you will see the days and the principles from the first book. I would just use them to go through and practice what the second book lists as skills

I'm using it along with what I already was doing to lose my weight. With the format, it helps to organize what I had learned by trial and error. I had regained some weight with a new job, so I'm working on losing about 10-15 pounds to get back to where I was and then the last 5 pounds I was trying to lose.

I will look through the other posts and follow along. It would be nice to keep this thred for the complete beck diet. Are you on the diet part? I'm still in stage one. Just getting adjusted to things. But so far I really like it. The hardest thing is planning what to eat a day in advance.

Leigh,
I have the Beck Diet for Life and really like it. I don't really think you have to get the other Beck book. I've never found it in bookstores where I'm at, so I only got the workbook. I think you can follow the days on this site to help you apply the concepts since they are the same. She just expanded on some and others were combined.

If its okay with the leaders I'm thinking maybe keeping this thread for discussing the Beck Diet for Life specifically. A place to talk about questions and maybe even do a little comparison. One of the differences is the diet part which she spends more time on. There has been discussion about her recommendation that dieters eat no less than 1700 calories.

The breeder docked her tail before I got her. And she weighs 23 lbs. She is smaller than most corgis I have met though. They are prone to be overweight - I just make sure I dont overfeed her and she gets plenty of exercise.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my corgi. I will never, ever have another kind of dog. She is SO smart and loves doing things with me. We do Pally Competitions and Pet Therapy. Plus she is great company. She doesn't dig at all and had a very, very short period of time where she chewed. She is extremely friendly to all animals and people and is very easy to train.

Hi Leigh,

I do not have the new book. I'm unemployed so money is tight. I can't spend money that isn't food, gas, and bills.

Like Judi said, there are a number of women on board who are using the new book. And we all are trying to implement Beck's general principles.

Do you like having a Corgi? I can't wait to get a dog! I was thinking of a Norfolk Terrier, or something along the same lines.

Hello Leigh,
Welcome to the team. (I hope some people see your note, but if not, post your question again on the Daily Check-in. That is where people "hang out". One of our members, CindiLP, did get the new book and has been telling us some things about it. (Scroll back in the Daily Check-in a month or so to see.)

I was not planning to buy the new book because I really took to the old one (particularly the workbook). And for me, the fact that it did not specify a diet was one thing I liked about it. I feel like she might have been bowing to some pressure to include a diet in the new book.

But even if you use that one and many of our people use the old one, I would bet that you are going to find that we speak a common language. It is not so much which "day" you are on or which "stage?" but it is about some of the basic principles. One of our "regulars", MADISONSMC, (Sarah), posted ten principles of Stage 1 on her Spark Page (so maybe that is from the new book.)

I am Judi, on of the co-leaders, and I want to extend my welcome and tell you to come around and chat. The Daily Check-in is a place for stopping by, giving encouragement, and such. There is also a new thread called the Coaching Corner for help with problem solving.

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Is anyone using this book? I just bought it and love it! I've started and the steps are different than in the book you all are using. Same ideas since it's written byt the same person. I'm looking for someone who would like to use the Complete Beck Diet for Life. Or if someone has read both and recommends the Beck Diet SOlution I am open to getting that book.

Thanks,
Leigh
