New to the team and to Beck. I'm just a few chapters in, but I'm hearing what it's saying and that's a pretty good start ;-). It's like a bunch of ah-ha moments all rolled into one.

Hi! I am doing great too. I just started the original Beck over again. And then I will do the one that SLENDERELLA is going. I love redoing this one, I am more relaxed about it this time and I LOVE this program!

I'm doing the green book (The Complete Beck Diet for Life) and am really impressed with it. Right now I'm on page 80 and have 200 more to go, but so far so good. It's just more of the same good stuff!

Just checking in...how's it going with Day 5? Mindful eating is tough - so often I would just forget to slow down and concentrate on how I am feeling, physically. When I go off track, neglecting to be a mindful eater is usually the cause. Later in the book Beck talks about being able to take a brisk walk after eating. If I can't do that, then I've eaten too much. So, to help me remember to eat mindfully, I often remember to ask myself: can I still take a brisk walk? I never had any luck with coaches - I hope things work out for you and yours! I use this website as my coach and it has been working out really well.

Hello. I just joined again today. I am new to the Beck Diet Solution. I just got the books this week. I read the intoductions and first chapter of the book and workbook last night. I am excited about the food tracker -especially because it tracks carbs as well. I am also doing the Atkin's thing- as always. I have a problem with carbs. It is good to be here and good to see all of the positive energy here!

JWP, I'm glad our Team is doing well.

So glad to see the Featured Blog today by WILDKAT781 .

Judith Beck PhD's books are available through any public library. If they don't have the copy at the library, they can always get it through Inter-library loan in a couple of days. So, there is no excuse to not find the book, even if a person says they can't afford to "buy" it. I got her books at the local college library and then wrote them out in a notebook that I have.

I just want to say "THANK YOU!" to all of the great posts you all have been posting. For a while there, I was concerned that there wasn't much interest from the members of this team. I'm so glad to see all of the support you are giving one another. You are awesome!

Yay! I got my workbook! gathering materials and reading like mad...doing more than one day at a time since I had photocopies of the first part of the book and had already begun more than a week ago. Will try to do a blog soon (I'm way past due for one!)

Arlene, you have the PLAN so you will be successful...be sure to read your Advantages Response Card as needed and give yourself CREDIT when you follow your plan!

I am relaxing today and doing things outside and walking....It's gorgeous outside though cold so perfect for staying active. I will restart Beck one more time next week sometime!

I am now working The Beck Diet for Life. I'm just on page 72 at this point and haven't started to use her food plan yet, but I feel like a renewed Beck devotee. If you liked the pink book but have done it twice or more, I strongly recommend you pick up this newer book. It's gold!!

Greetings all!

I have also been regrouping. My PT is coming to an end and I'm starting to be able to exercise more regularly again. I've been focusing on eating "no dough, no sugar" most days and I've been off of diet soda completely since August. Now to get the scale moving again! Like many of us I will also be revisiting Beck to see which harmful behaviors or thoughts have crept back in.


For those of us in the U.S. tomorrow is a big eating day. Do you have a plan? Mine is to have very small tastes of the carbs at the meal and one serving (one small plate) of dessert. Then to go back to no dough, no sugar on Friday and Saturday, then same plan for our "second Thanksgiving" Sunday.

I have put my "boom box" on my bed so I can listen to the Beck CDs there--with headphones. D:H would be laughing out loud if I did not use the headphones.

Hello everyone. The month is half over, so hope everyone has been doing well. I've been really busy going out to take care of my baby GD, Chloe' Renee and then helping with my GD, Grace who has been staying at our house. She is 3 now and takes a lot of time.

I SO agree with you about the continuous Becking. I plan to redo the program until I GET it but know that will take a long time....I have SO many behaviors/thoughts to PUSH-BACK.

Three cheers for the team!
I cannot ever do 100% compliance on anything. Not my nature. Pinning me in usually strikes rebellion in me. I just "give myself credit" for any small step. I have made several response cards that I refer to often but there are some things I am just not willing to give up or at least do forever but I did experiment with them. Just last week there was no way Beck could convince me to even attempt some of the strategies but after much reflection some are getting done this week. Be firm but kind to yourself. Just because the book adds up to a few weeks of strategies does not mean that they will be mastered in that time frame. Keep Becking and Keep Sparking!

Gaye -- exactly! I think it is my perfectionism (or at least thinking I should be able to do something perfectly), that keeps me from doing anything at all. So I'm with you ... doing the best I can!

Sally, I agree and have one question...IS there such a thing as 100% compliance. I am a STICKLER from the word GO but have found that in this run there are too many variables....I'm just trying to do the best I can....and when I apply Beck's teachings that does seem to be good enough for me.

Wishing you SUPER well!

Thanks Gaye and Gwynlee!

I can see I will have to figure what works for me. This will be a process. If I wait for 100% compliance I'll never get through the book. I'll aim for lunch and dinner at the table with no distractions, and hope to improve as time goes on.

Sally, I am on day 10 today, I believe. I just wanted to tell you that I was the SAME way....I was always at my computer and WATCHING TV at the same time. I really didn't know HOW I would sit at the table and do the mindful eating. DH began to sit with me at the table (he is NOT on Beck he IS a normal eater) and we BOTH love it....after about two days I realized it was really making a difference in how satisfied I feel with the food I am eating!

I wish you all the best on your journey! emoticon emoticon

Hi -- returning here after signing up for the team many years ago. Wasn't ready to make these important changes then, but working on it now. I've been inspired by so many of my favorite bloggers revisiting Beck, and realized this is an important step for me to learn the skills that will help me lose those last few pounds and maintain for life! The cognitive discipline can be my biggest struggle.

So, once again I'm struggling with Day 3. I usually eat sitting down, but in front of the computer, or while reading. I think to become more conscious of everything I put in my mouth, I need to be sitting at the table, with no distractions. Kinda hard for a multi-tasker, to be sure. But I'm a new empty-nester, life is a bit simpler, and I think I can give this the attention it warrants now. I'll keep working on it!

Sally from sunny Arizona!

I am so disappointed. The CD is not working right! The first disc skipped sections. Then it stopped working altogether. I tried the other discs--got an err message! Darn.

My name is Gaye and SLENDERELLA61 is my COACH/MENTOR I have such respect for her and am thrilled with this program so far....It has been pretty smooth and almost easy so far since I love structure! It seemed odd to sit down at the table with nothing else going on and eat like a HUMAN emoticon I WAS a "wolfer". Marsha has been so helpful to me as my mentor and I feel like I am in good hands....and I would really like to become more involved in this team.

I forgot to mention I was on day 4 today.

I just ordered the green Beck book and I'm serving as a coach for Gaby1948. We started with the pink book and workbook. I have been maintaining my 80 pound loss pretty well without pre-planning and occasionally eating standing up, but I do better -- and feel more confident and in control -- if I follow the program.

Day 3 - Eat Sitting Down
That's a hard one for me. I knew I did it but did not realize just how much!
Also, one I am not so willing to let go...
Could I amend if my work break requires standing on duty at school if my portion is preplanned and premeasured? 😣

PAMAPPLE, glad you got through the first four chapters. I just love Judith Beck PhD. She has stayed slim all these years using her plan.

I read the first 4 chapters, now ready to begin the program. I am ready to start the daily tasks and keep adding on as the days to by before I actually begin my chosen diet.

How is everyone doing with their tasks?

GWYNLEE2, so glad you are back!! Is it cold in Minnesota? I hate winter time, but at least pensacola doesn't get all that bad. Did you find a job? I turn 65 next week so I signed up for Medicare. Just have to take care of my health.

Thanks for the welcome Jibbie49. I am 65 years old. I managed to stay quite slim for most of my life by dieting when I needed to, until I stopped smoking about 7 years ago and I put on 4 stone over the next couple of years. I have managed to lose a lot of that twice since, but seem to pile it back on when I finish the 'diet'. I think it's been a mixture of being physically much less active and eating more high calorie foods. I know that I need to change the way I eat, which hopefully is where the Beck solution comes in! I am aiming to stop being 'on' or 'off' the diet and find a way to eat that keeps me slim but that I am happy with.

JEANDC, emoticon Glad you found us. This group as been a little slow lately, but do join in and we will all help each other. I love Judith Beck PhD, since she has stayed slim for well over 20 years using her method. I was slim up until I had my fifth child at 41 and then because I was so busy, I never go the weight off. I really regret it. I'll be 65 this month, so I really want to get back to a normal BMI.

Do read all the posts on the various issues, as there is a lot of information here.

I discovered Judith Beck's book yesterday, downloaded it on my Kindle and intend to follow all the instructions. I need people who are also doing this to interact with and hope I've found you!

It's time for me to re-focus on my nutrition and eating. Probably will have to cut back my running, so that will mean cutting back on calories, too. I haven't been pre-planning my meals, but I know that would help. I'm sure there are more Beck ideas that could help me, too.
