emoticon to your great weigh in, Carolyn!
Result of your skillful behaviors, I'm happy for you!

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.

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.

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.

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.

-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

Yeah, my understanding is that those are the three books.

I started Green last night and just got through part of the introduction. I'm a little put off, because it's like she sells out and created a DIET, whereas with pink, you can use any diet. Pink really worked for me, I've lost 15 pounds since I started it, and I'm a bit afraid to tweak my diet, since it's WORKING, but we'll see. I'm going to look at her diet and see if I can implement things I know I need to work on into what I'm doing currently. I was very resolved to follow Pink TO THE LETTER, and I'm nervous to do tweaks to Green's program, but I also don't want to mess myself up along the way!

A benefit from "taking credit" was to realize how hard I was on myself, to the point of not even thinking of ways to correct a problematic situation in the future.
So I worked on it yesterday and am very pleased with the outcome: I acknowledged that I may need a snack later at night and prepared some egg salad to spread on a rice cracker. And I did listen to Jon Kabat-Zin's body scan to fall asleep. I know this is not the best way to do it, but it beats staying awake and stressing about it.
The result: a good 8 hour sleep, and I am able to give myself credit for helpful behaviour!

Hello,

Just joined today, in time for the Back to Beck re-read!
Only two days ago I decided to get back on track again with lose the weight that crept up on me over the last year(s). I had stopped gaining and yo-yo'ed the last year or so, but not really getting rid of the excess 25 pounds.
So after having had a good experience with Beck before, I am keen to re-read Beck with the rest of you, read your plans and experiences and stay fully motivated.
Good luck to all of you, looking forward to reading your stories!

Hello and Happy Sunday,
I love Beck and am going to have to re-read (Start) from the beginning.
I kind of lost my way.
I have such a BIG problem with if I see it I have to have one or many. emoticon
I am not over weight, I am in maintenance after losing the 20 pounds I had to lose.
My problem is the stuff that goes into my mouth when I am not home. It is like my mind does not come with me.
This is not all the time ,of course, or I'd be rolling.
So, I know Beck addresses all that so for today it is Day one. emoticon emoticon UGH! belly fat!
It's the sweets and salt that I go bonkers over.
Any suggestions beside never leaving home is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
I am on walking 10,000 steps a day and have been doing good with that. plus some ST.
emoticon emoticon
I hope I didn't put this under the wrong topic so I did copy it over to another topic. emoticon

Good insight, Kriszta. The potato chip company figured it out: you can't eat just one! because they know that one is a powerful trigger. Plan to eat 10, then meeting that goal feels like an accomplishment.

Had an interesting insight last night.
I ate my planned dinner, my square of dark chocolate, didn't feel really full but I knew it was my portion and there's no more. Went on with my evening without thinking twice, watched a movie with DH, and 20-30 minutes later I noticed I was completely full.

The insight part is this:
in the past few weeks I often weighed in a bit under my goal, increased amount of my planned food a bit AND allowed myself small amounts of unplanned food, like small piece of cake, a few salty crackers... and on those days it was a lot harder to stop.
I think this is because eating unplanned food makes me expect some greater satisfaction at the end of the meal, and when it does not happen, an urge arises to eat more... desire to eat or craving.

I'm very pleased about this hypothesis, because it always bothered me why it is easy to eat planned moderate portions and why it is so hard to stop once I ate too much.

Em, I found the extra calories interesting too and loved the different options to keep extra calories reasonable. The worst possible food behavior during travel is letting go of planning and monitoring eating completely, and ending up eating on impulse. That may give us over 1000 extra calories plus physical and emotional discomfort.
Planning extra 100 or 200 or even 300 calories per day makes no impact on weight loss in the long term, but surely helps to enjoy the vacation fully and come home happy and proud.

Having company is a good practice platform for vacation planning. You have more control, but still have to practice dealing with the lack of structure (or at least different structure). Enjoy your beach walks. Here's some sunshine for you: emoticon

Had a thought! The kids are coming to stay with us for two weeks; not much different, diet-wise, from planning a vacation because they are great to be with! So.........I am planning our meals (in and out -- there will be a lot of going out involved, and they've given me their list of restaurants); Strength xercises will have to be done before breakfast or before bed, cardio will have to be the same unless the weather is better -- then we will head for the beach, and walk, walk, walk! Daughter in-law loves to beach walk, so here's to no rain for two weeks!

Funny thing: Last week I planned for our trip, previewed the menus, made the choices that would keep me in calorie range, then had to postpone the trip because of weather conditions. This is my Beck Week 32, and the Chapter is all about planning for a trip. Surprised me, because she recommends 100 more calories extra per day, plus a bonus meal because keeping to a strict regime can lead to complete collapse.
I think keeping to a flexible routine within my calorie range helps me to lose weight, while thinking that I can add more calories, but without actually eating them, keeps me happy. Just my opinion. The true test, of course, would be to actually take the trip. We will. 8-)

I have not been around for a while. Had difficulty with my diet. After the diet started I had trouble doing the activities of the day. I am back now. I am going to start at Chapter 7, Go start you diet. At that point is where I started having trouble.

I have been reading my reason cards daily, ,kept up my food journal wrote out my scheduled, giving myself credit has been a big help. I have lost a little weight, I will weight-in Tuesday morning as usual, and chart my weight. (My book to journal my foods start on Tuesdays' I will finish this week up).

I think Beck is the behavior change I need.

Everyone have a great day.

I have decided to come back to Becks and SP and start again. I haven't done so well on my own.
Starting Becks Day one for the second time through the book.
I'm encouraged by those who have gone through this with success.

I lost 200 gram (about half a pound, I think) in the past week. Glad to be moving in the right direction!

I felt good before I weighed in, felt good after I weighed in, and expecting this to be another good week!

Good luck, all y'all!

Sounds like you are doing very well Kriszta!

That's a good idea to have a set moment each week to review how it went.

Like on all Saturdays, today I review my response cards and complete my to do list to see if I still remember and practice my skills - yes!!!
Ate well and exercised on all days, didn't eat standing up or quickly, planned my meals the night before and monitored my eating in writing. There was stress but did not seek comfort in food, instead I went to bed early, read a good book and meditated.

Right on track. We spent the day yesterday with DS and DIL hugging on g-kids.

I took MY food and ate only what I brought. Yeah, ME. S-l-o-w and steady.

I was a bit hungry today; wanted to whine, but reminded myself that I can't have it both ways. No ifs, ands, or buts. Looking forward to being in th losing groove.
