When I started in May I didn't even count calories & then in August I started noting what I ate and gradually doing it more faithfully. Last week, after I'd snacked too much a couple of days because of stress trying to finish my course, I thought I'd pretrack. I found it a lot more helpful than I thought it would be. I was looking forward to each snack & meal & I liked that I'd taken the thought out of what I was eating.

Having said that, even though it was far easier to stick within my calorie limits when I pretracked, I'm not doing it this weekend because.... I actually don't have a reason. I'm going to pretrack from Monday to Friday next week - I'm hoping it's going to stick!

I always do better when I track in advance. (So why do I resist doing it???)

When I joined Sparkpeople I searched to see if there was a group on cognitive therapy or cognitive behaviour therapy & this was the closest thing I could find. I'm really glad I bought the Beck book - it really is good. I find it slightly overwhelming, but 'finding it all overwhelming' is one of the sabotaging thoughts detailed in the book, so I'm just doing what I can. I made a breakthrough this week & preplanned some days food - in their entirety, not just an outline. It worked well - there was some relief in having all choice removed from me. Unfortunately today I celebrated the end of a course I've been doing with a couple of glasses of Rioja (unplanned, of course) which then led to big time dietary disinhibition on my part. 'oh well..' as it says in the pink book...

Judith Beck, PhD's father, Aaron Beck, M.D. developed Cognitive Therapy, so her book certainly follows that line.

I eat so much more slowly since I started Beck three and a half years ago! Even though I have slipped back into some bad habits, the good habit of eating slowly seems to have stuck.

Thanks for the welcome Judi! It was taking me such a long time to eat dinner tonight, that the thought crossed my mind to give up and leave some. This is something that never happens normally...

Thanks for sharing this! I will try the non-dominant hand idea. Anything to interrupt the rush of eating, eating, eating!

Welcome!

Hello - I've been losing weight since May 2011. When I read a book called 'Overcoming Weight Problems' which uses cognitive behaviour therapy techniques, I thought that I might at last have found some ideas about keeping the weight off as well as losing in the first place.

I bought the Beck Diet Solution a few weeks ago and have really been concentrating on 3 things: eating sitting down, eating slowly and eating mindfully. I find that just these things are challenging enough for the moment! I heard about some good research yesterday on eating mindfully & I've written about it in a blog if you're interested...

I'm looking forward to getting to know more people on this board as I slowly make my way through the book!
