am just getting started here, still on Step 1 and proud that I'm really thinking of what I'm doing when out in the kitchen. Have caught myself a few times with something in hand and put it down and walked away. Any "extra" I'm doing, I'm doing with conscious thought. Have an anniversary trip coming up and am going to exercise this choice muscle a little longer so its good and strong for the temptations of 4 days of restaurant eating. Lost 3 lbs right away from just stepping away from mindless munching

Hi all! I've been crazy busy but things are finally settling down right now. I am doing some weekend organizing, cleaning and getting ready for the week, which I haven't had time for for a few weeks.

I'll have to check out the new Beck book!

Oooops! That previous post was did not last. This was a challenging day getting ready for moving day:

This day turned out more than OK. I found two pairs of sandals, NAOT, that exactly match my vision of the shoes I wanted.

The matter of the auto/home insurance request is OK. Proof (picture) of sprinkler system and letter from complex manager in a letter on letter head paper of the Central Fire Alarm system are being prepared. Took three bags of stuff to the recycle bin.

I did seven or eight loads of laundry, cleared out the bedroom for my daughter, bagged up and identified bags of clothes to ship. She will arrive around 3:45 tomorrow afternoon. We will probably go out for dinner or stay home and have a bunless hamburger (aka a hamburger salad). I prepared bananas for the freezer for our chocolate/banana/protein smoothies for breakfast. Gave away some stuff to a neighbor.

I found two dimes today--one in the laundry room and another in my pocket. After my son's passing I found several dimes in various places--in my pocket and around my apartment. I like to think that he left them to let me know he was looking after me. (Coins were part of the Buddhist Funeral ceremony.) When I was a little girl, my Mother used to give me dimes in my Christmas Stocking--maybe they were from her??? Those are lovely thoughts to end my day.

Good going, Christiecat!

Healthier Vicki, so glad you've chosen Beck. I've done the pink book, then the pink workbook, and then the lime green book. I've learned with each one of them. Now I've pre-ordered the new blue book. I now almost think like a thin person!!

Morning all! I'm working on moving more today. While the coffee was making, I walked up the driveway checking to see that it was clear from downed trees or limbs after the storm last night. My drive is 200 ft. so a good way to start the morning.

I'm also working on only eating what I truly want today and really tasting the food. Lots of water and lemon.

Hello, fellow Beck-sters! I've had a hard time checking in here and keeping up but I hope to get better at it. I know how much it helps keep me on track to stay connected. I've had a tough time keeping to the program the last few weeks, but now I've pulled myself together and ready to get back fully on track.
Good to catch up with everyone,

i just talked with the lady who is hosting our Bible study and told her that I am trying to lose weight and I plan to bring fruit as an option to all the sweets we usually have. She was so pleased.

I'm off to do errands this morning after my mug of green tea. Did my FlyLady bedtime routine last night and awoke this morning and dressed to my shoes. Three weeks from today the movers will arrive to start their work. I need to go to Office Depot this morning to FAX some info to my auto/home insurance carrier, take three bags of paper stuff to be shredded, and load up on ink for my printer. Nice to do all my errands in one place. After that to the market for foods.
Gotta go, my tea is ready. Have a great day! emoticon Roberta

GWYNLEE2, I often feel as if I am starting over every morning. I start out strong and the day grinds down or people and things create roadblocks.

Had the first passover sedar last night. Interesting -- someone at the grocery store didn't understand that Passover and Easter were always close together as the last suppoer is a passover sedar

I know I am sleep-deprived and exhausted from all the de-cluttering and downsizing, but yesterday it affected my alertness. I Googled USPS.com and thought I had clicked on USPS.com to do a HOLD MAIL and Change of Address. NOPE! It was a mail service! I had to supply my debit card number for $39.95 charge! Thought that was odd. So finally got to talk with a customer service rep at my credit union to cancel my card. The CS rep called that company to ask them to refund the charges--luckily they did. But now I have to wait a week for a new card!

Lesson learned!!! I will check the Googled list carefully from now on and not click on the first item on the list!

I keep starting over, too, Earnie! That is a good thing, however! We do not give up! Persistence pays off!

weigh in - day for me. No loss but that's ok because I am at goal. Would love to have a little breathing room with a lb or 2 less than goal but I'm not complaining! :) Glad to see some new starters - will be cheering you on!

How about you gwynlee2?

Naturally I'm happy to be a diet coach too if anyone needs one! :-)

I'm super excited today because The Beck Diet solution (pink book) arrived. I've decided to re-start everything on the day after I come back from holiday. So on Saturday 28th I'll read the intro pages, do Day 1, and re-start on the NoS Diet. Looking forward to it. Will check in here daily too. (No computer while I'm away though).

Jibbie, the book won't be out until sometime in April, but you may be able to get on a list at the library now.

Good morning, Beckers! It's been a pretty good week for me so far. I have been able to stay within my eating plan and get in the exercise and meditation time I wanted. I created a ticker, or tried to, anyway - to track my progress for 25 pounds lost.

Off to work for a bit.
Have a good day!

I think the book is only available for pre order now. I will probably get it at some point, but haven't done the green book so will put it at the end of the line. Maybe those who do get it will write a review. I'd love to know what is new/different in it.

ChristieCat - I am going to make a real effort to start using the food tracker. I do see its value, jsut been lazy about entering food. I don't eat a ton of different foods either, but I often make things at home and don't usually measure ingredients when making things like soup. I have lots of things vacuum packed in individual portions already in my freezer but I will make it a goal to add one new recipe a week and start building up my database.

Goinggreen - I entered it all at the end of the day. I am a pretty boring eater so I used the same meals a lot and tweaked them as I went along - different snacks though more often. It wasn't easy but got used to it. It really helped me understand the breakdown of what I ate and I figured out how to balance all the numbers - which led to greater weight loss and feeling fuller. It also helped me to go from canned soup for example to making my own for greater benefit but I had the time in the day to do so as well.

ChristieCat - Congratulations at seeing that goal number on the scale. I really like all the extra info that tracking food on a computer gives, I just don't like the tedium of entering it all in. I keep telling myself that once I get a few of my main meals in, it won't be so hard. Do/did you use the mobile app and track as you go, or enter it all at once at the end of a day?

tracking my food really worked for me when I was losing weight - I did it through spark and showed me how to balance protein, carbs, fat etc - I learned better combinations of food and finally understood about fiber and why sugar free Jello was not filling me up and other things caused me to sugar crash and then overeat after. In maintenance I've become lazier - I have a pretty boring eating rountine -mainly because I cook in batches since I tend to eat different things than the rest of the family(I;m a vegetarian - they are not).

i have been tracking food via pen and paper for a long time -- the job I was just laid off of would not allow us to use the computers for anything other than work so i had to track that way -- just kept it

Seems like everyone is on a good streak - go team!!
I've had a busy few days but manageable. Rainy weather here but I've been hitting the treadmill. I'm thinking I may plan for a new treadmill as a gift to myself when I get to my goal. I am not real good about tracking food here or using a program, but I do keep a little notebook with me and jot down what I eat and when. I have added a section each day as a reminder to take care of myself - MEE which stands for Meditate - Exercise - Eat well. That pretty much sums it up for me. if I take care of MEE, I'll bee on the path I want to be on. The M could also stand for Mindful eating but I am trying to lower my blood pressure and a robust meditation practice has helped in the past so it's a priority for me.
Still loving Beck!!

Heidi, I hope I can say the same thing in a few months.

Update on my move: been on the phone and computer doing searches and talking with someone helping me with details. I get lost in my computer and time flies by--7:00 came and had a buttered sweet potato! Tasted good and very filling. Can't remember when I had my last one.

Time to start my FlyLady bedtime routine--lots of errands tomorrow.

Hi all!

I don't have a scale that measures all those things, but I know that when I hit a scale plateau like I did last month, my measurements told a different story: I WAS losing fat and gaining muscle, because I lost two full inches each in my waist and hips and 1/2-1 in in other body parts I measure. I had been doing a LOT of strength training in January and February.

Muscle-fat ratio is actually a much stronger indication of health than just weight. If you lose weight but don't gain muscle you are much more likely to regain because you haven't changed your metabolism.

So I'm in the middle of spring break. Today I got up early with dh to do our circuits before he had to work. Then I did some things and took a three hour nap, then did some more things, then went on an hour walk with a friend. My experiments with alternating my calorie ranges is going well.

Happy Spring!
Heidi

CHRISTIE CAT, I'm sorry that your little one has been ill--I know how that is. I hope both of you are back to feeling good soon.

My weight fluctuates from a few tenths of a pound to a whole pound from one day to the next. I exercised for the first time in months yesterday, and it was up a pound this morning! Reviewed my food log and still can't figure it out. Oh, well, that is why each day is new and I can up my exercises.

Here's to an enjoyable and successful day to both of us.
