Still catching myself eating standing up. Good grief!!! This is a difficult hard habit to break.

Today I walked right past the open bag of Hershey's Carrot Cake Kisses (a new thing). I just pretended it was someone else's food. I wouldn't dream of snitching a piece of candy off someone's plate.

Good for YOU, Kathleen! It feels good to exercise that Resistance Muscle, doesn't it?

Beck has taught me I can sit a big bowl of popcorn between Joe and I at night and not eat one bite of it! Not even be tempted anymore, really. THAT's a miracle for me, lol.

Yesterday I gave myself BIG credit for NOT snitching a little slice of cheese as my husband prepared supper. I was standing up, so I couldn't eat it. That was HARD!

It's a beautiful, bright and sunny 75 degrees here in Central Texas today!

I changed my photo icon to one taken the last time I was at goal. That was ELEVEN YEARS ago, lol.

It's to remind me how long it took me to get back there so I'll be a lot more cautious in the future!

I'm less than a pound away, but the last pound stuck on my scale for over two weeks, so who knows when I'll get there?

I'm happy for you Gwynn! Did you make a change that you think helped in particular?

I made it through my Big Fat Italian Dinner on Friday night and Easter dinner and the entire weekend without gaining an ounce! A major victory for me!

"Being strict on week days but 'loose' on weekends" has been my downfall in the past. When I read this in the Beck Workbook, I knew THIS is what I really need to work on and remember every weekend!

I have the workbook too and really like it. Read your blog and had an interesting internal dialogue emerge this weekend in response the question you shared in your blog.

Glad you have the workbook in hand and hope you find it useful too!

I've started the workbook that goes with Beck. You can read about it in my blog.

I'm determined to really "work" this just as if it is a class I paid to take. I'm going to learn it, absorb it, make it part of me.

Beck helped me conquer the Chinese Buffet, lol .

Joe and I went to a bookstore about an hour away yesterday and then had lunch at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I never come away from this place without being stuffed. But I was actually able to eat reasonably, felt light and happy afterwards, and woke up this morning weighing the same as yesterday morning.

A major victory for me, who has always taken the "all you can eat" sign literally, lol.

Gwyn, maybe you can try changing something. For instance, eat your biggest meal midday and eat very light at night. Are logging every bite you eat? Also, stay off sugar and greatly reduce the starchy foods in your diet. Also, don't forget the calories you DRINK.

Just the first suggestions that come into my mind. Hope that helps.

RATTOAC, you certainly have some great events to aim for! That should motivate you to reach your goal!

Karen

Just checking in--starting over again. Going to Europe in July 2016 and riding a 100mi bike ride at the end of Sept2016, time to start training, getting healthy, and making better choices. I am hopeful there will be some friends along the way in this team to join me w this program :) I will finish this! I can do this! I have succeeded, and I will again.

The most helpful thing I've picked up from Beck so far is this: I Can Wait.

So often I think I'm hungry, I want to eat, I crave some texture or temperature or taste in my mouth. But when this happens now I quickly think I Can Wait. And I do. And I get busy with something and later I notice I don't have that need, that desire, anymore.

Good morning, all! (It's morning here in Chicago... a rather bleak day weatherwise, but I'm trying to remain positive. I miss the sun!)

I can relate to the recent posts -- I have been sitting at the same weight for about a week (not all that long, but still...) and I'm trying to remind myslelf that I didn't get to my highest weight overnight, either. Last night, to combat feelings of discouragement, I decided to try on the pair of pants I've got hanging up where I can see them -- the next smaller size. They fit! That really helped. I like Beck's "distraction" concept -- but it has to be something that makes me feel good, Onward! Hope everyone has a good day today --

My weight is going down 2/10 lb at a time, lol. I have less than 4 pounds left to lose and I know the last pounds are always very hard to be rid of.

If I can't eat any less or move any more, what can I do? I guess if I just keep on I'll eventually get there.

Kim, Welcome to Beck. I've been working the first Beck book, pink one, for about three weeks now. Blogging now and then. It has definitely done something good to my brain and enabled me to break through a barrier that has kept me from goal, even when I was so very close.

I'm much closer now and even though I know the last 3 lbs. may be the hardest, I also know I'll get there, using Beck!

Hi,, everyone. I'm relatively new to the Beck team but have been using the Beck Diet Solution for about.6 months. I like this idea of a Daily Check-in.a lot! I'm aiming for small steps -- today I committed to rereading the Beck principles. Really helps! Plus, a lot of the principles are helping with my other big project -- clearing my clutter (e.g., takes a lot of time and energy, have to be paitent, have to be willing to experience some discomfort,, etc.). Reading the principles helps me stay on track and motivates me. Just like this chec-in!

I'm down another half pound this morning. This is the best 8 oz. I've lost, lol. It has put me below one of those 5 lb. increments I haven't seen in years. Many years. I'm thrilled.

Elizabeth, My Pinterest boards are all art and food. Never thought of creating a Beck board. I'll look into that.

Lily, I'm fairly new to Beck but it's already working. Just read every word, do what it says and think hard about it.

Checking in a bit late, but moving slowly but surely. My personal first couple of days focused on getting reacquainted with my cards, and pinning a few new quotes to my Pinterest Beck Diet Solution board. Books come out today, along with decluttering the closet of clothes that are holding me back for whatever reason. For me, my prime movitator: I am a child of God made in God's image and am in charge of stewarding this gift of a life I've been given: heart, body, mind, and soul. If I am going to give back to the world around me, I need to take care of all of it.

Speaking of hair, Karen: yeah - with the autoimmune, it's thinning a bit (I notice it, but not like some family who have to take some effort to hide balding spots. I'm hoping the whole foods focus and self-care (destressors) will stem the tide, if not get it back to full health.

Beck does work - I know from prior experiences. It was when I stepped away from the program when I had tons of stress heaped on me during the last two years that things fell apart big time health-wise. It'll be wonderful to have an accountability partner!

Thanks, Gwyn.

I notice the saying you have in your signature about not giving up. Another SP friend of mine has a similar one: It is always too soon to give up!

That, and "Adding calories to a bad day does not make it better." along with "No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before." are like mantras to me.

I repeat them throughout the day when I'm tempted and they help keep me on the path of the Way Of Eating I've chosen.

Tell me what book 3 is about. I think book 2 is the blue book and is maintenance, right?
I'm so grateful to have found book 1, lol. I really look forward to book 2!

Elizabeth, good for you for starting Beck again!

I'm on my first try and doing well so far. I'll read your blogs, you read mine, lol. Encouragement really feels good when you're struggling. I know.

I peeked at your Spark page. Do you still have that beautiful hair! It's gorgeous!

Here's to success for us all.

Recommitting to Beck. Dealing with autoimmunity but slowly beginning to feel better, and today I'm determined to get this back on track. I have my Advantages Response Cards in a little journal by my bed, so that's the first goal. I'm also focusing on the goal of eating a large salad a day to start (heading for Eat to Live/Daniel Plan as an 80% on plan/20% free day goal. Looking forward to the support here, and being there for others.

I'm still working Day 11. Some of Beck's days are more than 24 hrs. for me, lol. I may start Day 12 later today.

Just by working these first 11 days and following all the recommendations, something has clicked in my tiny little brain, lol. And I'm down 5 lbs!

In my Beck blog this morning, I didn't move on to Day 10 because I hit a glitch, a bump in the road. Still slogging along anyway.

I blogged again today. This one is about exercise, my favorite thing, really, so no problems with this part of Beck.

I was led to this link by OHMEMEME. Thank you! Didn't know this existed and I think it will add some support and information to my journey down the Beck road.

I blogged again today, even though I didn't want to. I spent some time last night resenting this daily blog thing, but somehow I woke up this morning and it just all came out and I actually enjoyed it and benefited from it. Who knew? lol.

Hi, all. I can. Tell I'm ancient -- the thought of revealing my innermost thoughts from reading Beck or about my weight fills me with horror! I find this kind of forum very motivating,, though. I am just now getting back on track with Beck after about a 3 month hiatus. Her principles really work -- especially when combined with the Daniel Plan, I've found.

I think that sounds better to me, too. I have a Beck notebook and actually enjoy the art of writing with a pen, lol.

I do think reading the first week of Beck has focused my awareness. I already knew most of the things suggested. It's just over time things get lost, pushed back and finally, ignored. So going through this book IS helping.

I just finished week 1 of Beck and blogged about each day.

I'm enjoying the book and the daily projects but I'm not eager to blog about it every day.

Did those of you who have already been through Beck do a daily blog. I think it's just "not my thing" to post my every thought for all the world to read, lol.

Hi all... I'm Becky and lost 65# with this group a few years back. Life threw me a few curve balls and I now I need to lose 35# again... It's good to see this team still going.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and working through the"days" again.

Have a great weekend!!

p.s. I'm from Westerville OH - just north of Columbus. When I was Sparking before, I lived in Duluth, MN

I just joined this team. My other teams do have some type of Daily Chat where we really get to know each other.

Currently, I'm just going to post in Day 1, Day 2, etc. After that, it would be good to check in somewhere. So just let me know and I'll show up!

I live in Central Texas, about an hour north of Austin and have been on SP for years. There is a hip replacement in my future but I'm not in pain now so just trudging along. Love to get to know everyone here. Friends on SP are really what makes it all work! You can visit my SP page if you want to know more. I'll be finding my way around, slowly.

My son who is living in Virginia now is in Bogota for a week. He and his team. He's not happy about being driven around in an armored car nor about the planned dinner they have every evening for them. It takes place at 10 pm and he is someone who is in bed by 8pm and leaves for work at 4 am. Also, he says there are 7 courses and the entire dinner always lasts for hours.

He'll be ready to return to his own schedule soon, lol. I will say his job has given him the opportunity to visit places he would never have gone. He's been to Greece, all over Mexico, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. etc. Greece is the only place he wants to revisit with his family.

Joe and I have a concert scheduled in May. John Fogerty of the Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio. I always loved their music! Still do. I think he is the only one still performing.

The baby gates give me time to rethink my choices. It's usually in the middle of the night, so I'm too tired to get out my cards, but it does remind me of my way of escape.

So far down 5 lbs since Tuesday. I know it's going to slow down (lost a lot of sodium/water the first few days), but I'm sleeping better and feel better.

I have joined a 21 day challenge to not eat past 7 p.m. In tracking, I realized I consumed almost half of my daily calories after 7. I'm on day 3. I'm down 2.5 lbs since then!

Using my cards and I even put baby gates on the kitchen doorways to keep me out of the kitchen.

I have read too much and feel overwhelmed, so I made a list for myself to try to set a baseline to adhere to. Perhaps then I will have a foundation laid and can add something more. Here's my plan:

Two major habits to change:
Afternoon Snacking - Have a plan - protein + fruit or veg.
Make a list of healthy snacks and keep in the kitchen.
Overdoing the wine in the evening.
Have two 3.5 oz. glasses before dinner and drink water with my meal.

If I do these two things, plus keep up with the activity, I will stay healthy and may even lose a little more weight. Just don't obsess about it.

And remember:
Eat healthy foods in moderation MOST of the time;
Go to Curves;
Walk with my friend.

I have also made the 2 glasses of wine and water with dinner; and healthy afternoon snack two goals on my start page that I check off daily.


A thoughtful conversation between friends.
Pooh: "Piglet, what day is it?"
Piglet; "Why, it's today!"
Pooh: "Oh, good. That's my favorite day!"

Just ordered the Blue Book. It should be here on Tuesday. I'm really hoping I can make some changes - I'm a lifetime WW member, who is struggling with Night Eating Syndrome. I do so well during the day and wake up to eat several times at night (even though I'm not hungry). It's become a habit that I need to break. Hoping CBT will help me!

Love your way of thinking Lizarddreaming! I chose to not follow one of the rules of weighing daily. When I weigh daily - it becomes obsessive and I end up weighing myself several times a day and think about it constantly which is not healthy! I know there is lots of work to do with that scenario but I'm focusing on the other steps for now.
