Wow, I gotta check in here more often! Missed a ton of stuff!

Kriszta, I eat like you do. In fact, our nutrition plan is about the same. I eat meat, but very little. Mostly beans and eggs for protein, and no sugar or flour, 3 meals.

If anyone wants to do another Pink book challenge, let me know. I'm going to do a Blue one soon, but I kept all my notes so I can run a Pink challenge at any time. I don't have the Green book. I did, but returned it because the diet plan didn't seem right for me as a diabetic at the time.

Never been this excited practicing sticking to my plan!!

I'm on not specific "diet." I eat three meals a day plus a couple of healthy snacks. I use SparkPeople nutrition tracker to stay within my calories and nutrient ranges. I measure all servings to the best of my abilities. I don't restrict any foods but limit my intake to red meat, sugary treats, processed and most fast foods.

finished the "pink" Beck book.
I'm going to start over because there's so much information I don't want to miss one nugget!

Thanks everyone for posting. I don't always post, but I do about 2 hours of Spark reading every morning. I am helped by the thought that "I'm not alone."

Let's make today great on purpose!

I eat 3 meals a day, nothing between meals.
No sugar, no white flour - but I eat a lot of whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruit.
Lots of vegetables, some eggs, diary, olive oil, butter, dark chocolate.
I very rarely eat meat.
I know my quantities from SP Nutrition tracker and I measure everything on a kitchen scale.

Just saying . . . . .
Trying to find the right balance in maintenance mode. While I continue to use the tools and strategies of Beck Diet Solution and SparkPeople, I need to fine tune my exercise and nutrition plan. A work in progress.

I have been planning my meals in writing the day before (sometimes breakfast) since 14th October 2016, and monitor my eating after each meal (sometimes at the end of the day).
I'm still amazed how little time and effort it takes, usually 2-3 minutes, maybe 5-6 minutes if it is a complicated day.
And it benefits me on so many levels!
-no struggling, no cravings - I don't even think of food outside actual time of planning, preparing and eating food
-I know exactly what I'll have for dinner, and I know how it will feel: delicious, satisfying, mildly pleasant - and I have no unrealistic expectations that it will relieve stress or boredom, or make me happy - it is only a meal
-I have all my food written in front of me so I have to see it is plenty, especially dinners (like tonight I'll have brown rice, lentils, olive oil, tomatoes, an apple and 2 squares of dark chocolate for dinner
-if I eat something unplanned, I write and circle it - so I know exactly what I ate, and if my weight starts creeping up (it doesn't) I will immediately know what went wrong - no worries!
I'm so glad I found Beck Diet Solution!

Back from vacation in Hawaii and I'm proud to report that YES, I'm down a pound! I used my Beck's skills daily and enjoyed my trip without revolving it around food and alcohol. Going to be out of town again in May for a couple of weeks so I'm feeling confident that I can stay on plan. By the way, my DH weighed when he got home and was up 5 pounds... that would have been typical for me in the past also. Whew! Dodged that bullet.

Bowdiddle, You're not the only needing extra time. Some of these concepts that are my worst struggles, I feel I could spend a week on that particular day. These are concepts I need to constantly review.

You take whatever time you need as it's your journey. We can always come here to discuss things if need be.

Bowdiddle- that is such a smart thing to do if that is what you need/want! I think so much of this is about listening to ourselves/ our bodies, and doing the book your way is just that!

Rhonda- You have inspired me! We will be traveling a lot in the next month and I was bemoaning to my husband that I have worked to hard to blow it all on going away! Luckily both vacations are going to include a lot of walking but alcohol and food can become a real problem on the first one. I am trying to come up with some strategies for that week.

I have had a chance to practice a number of Beck skills this past week. We are vacationing in Hawaii and I am committed to staying on track. We travel a LOT and if I give myself permission to indulge because I'm out of town, traveling or on vacation I would be a real porker. This past week, I haven't been able to weigh but have stayed within my calorie range, skipped desserts and sweets, eaten reasonably and haven't had any alcohol. I'll be home on Friday and I'm keeping fingers crossed that I'll maybe be down a bit. Hope you are all had a great week and sending positive thoughts for the week ahead. Oh, and Happy Earth Day!

Not sure how I managed to 'lose' a week. I had a few indulgences on Easter - nothing too bad, nothing too 'much',but it is amazing to realize how my body responds to certain things. Lessons learned (and hopefully remembered). Getting back to it. I will be catching up on reading today.

After posting for 42 days straight as I went through the Becks Pink Book, it became a habit. Now I'm reading Chi Running and making a daily synopsis of my reading in my Spark Journal. I hope this is a new habit that sticks as I can see the benefit of reading just a few pages consistently. Another type of success I gained from Becks!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter. I made a ham dinner for the family with several sides. I ate mindfully and in moderation... and no bread or dessert! Hooray... hoping that I see a loss for the week on the scale in the morning. Fingers Crossed!

Her birthday was actually in December but schedule conflicts kept coming up so we finally did her birthday dinner. We went to an Italian restaurant which of course puts a huge basket of bread on the table. I didn't have any bread and didn't order wine! Score. I ordered a house green salad and pesto/garlic linguine with grilled chicken, I only ate about 1/2 cup of the linguine and the chicken and then gave the rest to my DH. It was delicious and I feel good that I enjoyed the evening and stayed on course.

I read day1 (again) and rewrote my "why I want to lose weight" list - I made 3 copies - I want to be comfortable in my smallest jeans again! I need to stop "going up" and head back down. I heard this quote by Joyce Meyer and want it to be my "mantra." "I set my mind, and I will keep it set." (From "Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth." Col. 3:2)

I had a big "oh, well" moment last night. I was at a restaurant and after I finished my dinner (a house salad with four grilled shrimp) the waitress walked by with a plate piled high of my favorite sweet potato fries- I was still a little hungry but thought to myself oh well...

Thank you for sharing about the green book,
Beatletot, sounds good!

I'm doing D25 Identify Sabotaging Thoughts - my first one today was at 12:30 "eat a few bites of lovely fresh baguette, the sandwich DS is eating looks so good" - it is lunch time and he is eating breakfast ; )
Helpful response: I could eat but this is not what I planned for lunch. My lunch will be a lot better.

Read a little more Green last night. She is giving me six experiments to show hunger is not an emergency. I'll read them one at a time and do them. Today was to write down instances where I wanted to eat between breakfast and lunch and label them "hunger" or "non-hunger." I did awesome on it, of course, because I am a graduate of Pink!

I had a great weigh in today and had a big give myself loads of credit experience last night. I had a cup of decaf tea while others around me had cake, cheese and crackers and all kinds of snacks. I feel like my weigh in this morning was my reward for not partaking, even though it was late and I hadn't eaten for several hours. Yay me!

Kristza - I had to laugh. As I read your description of the book, I was thinking - I could use those tear out cards...LOL. Not really. The last 5 days have been frantic ones for me and I am behind in my reading. I intend to get back to being disciplined and spending time thinking - tonight!

I got the blue book at the library and have just started reading it. I, too, was curious as to why there are multi-colored books. From reading the table of contents and only the first few pages of the blue book, I get the feeling that it is the same strategies put forth in the pink book but organized slightly differently. Reading the index of the blue book is like reading the notes I made when I read the pink book. I don't think you can go wrong no matter which book you follow.

Sounds interesting, and I can imagine how annoying it can be to work with those small differences. So far I only have read pink book, but from what I hear about the blue book and green book, they seem to convey the same message but tailored differently, maybe to match learning style of different people?
I bought the pink workbook for my mom (who never opened it) - and as I flipped through the pages, it seemed to target people who have less time, less passion for reading and contemplation, but may benefit from the abbreviated key messages.
Like, instead of writing their own response cards to sabotaging thoughts, there are ready printed response cards to cut out at the end of the book. I guess it is less powerfull then creating and using our own special ones, but some people who wouldn't bother creating their own might cut out the ready-made ones and benefit from them.

As for the Advantages Response Card versus1 advantage per business card,
I imagine the both solutions are equally good.
This year I'll read the blue and the green book for sure.

Congratulations!!! That's great!

I've read a bit more of the Beck Green book. I'm still feeling put off by it and questioning the program. Mostly, it's because of the things that are different about Beck Pink. I guess of course it has to be different, or it's just the same book, but I still get a little peevish about it. For example, instead of ARCs, you're supposed to write your Advantages onto business cards, one at a time. I can't tell if I'm cheating the program if I just use my ARCs.

Great attitude!
We can only speculate before trying, but we have facts after giving it a try!

It occurred to me a few days ago that I don't really need to over think anything. Just follow the plan as written. I can evaluate all I want AFTER I've tried the plan as written by Dr Beck. It's actually even easier than I imagined it would be.

Congrats to your 5 weeks on track, Cat!

Thank you for the hints on Friend feed, BEATLETOT,
I'm glad it is still there, even if hidden...
The second option is really funny, I hope it remains : )

Yeah, me, too. That's been the annoying part for me from this whole process. There are two ways to get to it.

1. From the Start Page, on the right, there's a menu of "Community Links," and "Friend Feed" is about the fourth one down or so.

2. (My favorite) Click on someone, anyone's SparkPage. Now the Community tab has the Friend Feed link back on it. I think it's a glitch, but I hope they don't find it and "fix" it.

I'm 4'10.5". A normal BMI for my height tops out at 121.

Oh, that is great! where is it now?
I used to open it from Community, and it disappeared from that menu.

Friend Feed still exists, too. I'm okay with it, because I was never on my Start Page anyway. I always enter Spark from message board subscriptions.

I haven't found them either - maybe they are gone?

I was glad to find out I can filter the news feed (which I don't like) for "People I Follow" and luckily that is like the old Friend Feed (which I like)
and if I tick "Make default filter" it becomes permanent - they added this functionality today.

Lots of changes on the Spark page ... I can't find where to get my Team points.

Right on track.

This is THE year dedicated to changing behaviors. I am in the process of reading everything I can get my hands on. I am also wrapping up The Thyroid Secret free pod cast.

Knowledge is power.

One of the things that I'm really grateful for is that I'm learning that mistakes are just part of the learning process; they are not tragedies. Thanks Beck!

Still on track since 11 days. Feeling great! And still very motivated to work through Beck Pink again, to see the bigger picture of what I am trying to accomplish.
I have only read Pink, and am re-reading that book again. But would like to know what the others are about. Will check it out online....

Yes, pink, blue and green:
www.beckdietsolution.com/

I'm so happy with the pink book I never read blue and green, but this year will be the year, and I'll read them both.
It is great the green book gives advice on what to eat.

There is a different program, Bright Line Eating which I found very helpful, and it always bothered me it doesn't say what to eat. In Beck Diet Solution it was OK because dr. Beck clearly stated on Day 2 we can use any diet - but I guess it is helpful for many people.
