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 have not blogged specifically about Beck and my thoughts about each day. I have been keeping a paper and pen journal of my weight loss journey, though.

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.

Baby gates are a clever idea to make you stop and think before mindlessly getting a snack.

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.

another day, another pound. Am doing it all right, following the rules, But these daily weigh ins - when they go up rather than down - are getting to me! Know in my heart that the weight is a reflection of a whole bunch more than my weight, but in the short term, the scale is the only guidepost I've got. My head keeps saying "if its going up, you should at least be enjoying the ride with fats and sugars".

So far so good with Beck Pink. I'm taking more than one day, though, to let things really sink in and develop strategies that work and that will stick with me (e.g. my ARC is listed in back of my agenda, which I carry with me everywhere).

Thanks for posting that list. I am going to print it out and put it on the refrigerator. It is a good list to keep in mind every single day.

I am finding Beck Blue as interesting, informative and useful as I found Beck Pink.

checking in for the first time in too long. We all know how easy it is to get sidetracked, distracted, and overwhelmed. Well, that's what happened. I'm not back as part of a New Year's resolution. Am just adding steps, one at a time, building myself back up. Have goals, have a plan, and am working on it.

following the plan leads to success

I'm just checking in, working on the Beck Blue foundation strategies. This evening, that means hiding upstairs (as far from the kitchen as I can get, less temptation to snack) and trying to plan tomorrow's meals. Unsuccessfully, thus far. Thinking about food is just making me more hungry!

-Angie

PS: All this time, I thought the "Beck principles checklist" was the (ever growing) list at the end of each of the 42-day chapters in Beck Pink...

Here are the 20 principles from the list found on Day 41 in the Beck Diet Solution Workbook (page 236) I mentioned in my previous post. Again, I'm not sure if they are the principles checklist cited in the daily goal, and they don't really feel like a checklist to me, but they are worth reviewing:

- Dieting and exercise require significant time and energy.
- You need to eat a nutritious diet and modify it in advance to suit circumstances and preferences.
- You should arrange your home and work environments to reduce food triggers.
- It's better to waste food than to risk deviating from your plan.
- It's essential to learn the skills of writing down a food plan, monitoring food intake and sticking to the plan -- 100 percent.
- Eating slowly and mindfully while sitting down needs to be a lifetime habit.
- Hunger and cravings are normal and tolerable. Certain activities can help you reduce thse uncomfortable feelings.
- It's important to tolerate up to a 20-minute wait after eating for the sense of fullness to kick in.
- Weighing daily keeps you on track; expect normal weight fluctuations to avoid disappointment.
- You can learn to identify and counteract sabotaging thoughts.
- Life is sometimes unfair -- so is dieting. You'll struggle less if you just say to yourself, "Oh well."
- It's important to give yourself credit for learning diet skills.
- When you make a mistake, face it and learn how to avoid mistakes in the future.
- It makes no sense to compound one mistake with another; get back on track immediately.
- Assertively say no to food pushers.
- It's important to seek out support and to ask for help when you need it.

Hi, PressingOn. I had the same question a few months ago and it appears no one knows exactly what that list specifically refers to or who authored the original goal. But in reviewing the Beck books, I found two references -- one in the pink Weight Loss Workbook, Day 41 on page 236 that lists 20 principles of the Beck Diet Solution, and the other in the DIet Trap Solution on page 229 that lists 12 "foundation" strategies. The 20 principles are long, but the 12 foundation strategies are the following:

1. Writing an advantages list for achieving your goal
2. Developing consistent behavioral habits.
3. Composing and reading reminder cards for sabotaging thinking
4. Creating lists and schedullng what you're going to do and when.
5, Giving yourself credit for every step you take.
6. Accepting discomfort.
7. Strengthening your resistance muscle.
8. Consulting friends, family members,, coworkers, or mentors.
9. Changing unreasonable rules, such as perfectionism and over-responsibility.
10. Developing a sesne of entitlement to make changes.
11. Being assertive with others.
12. Staying on track when times are difficult.

I created my own list of daily principles/strategies that I track daily:
Read my Advantages list
Weighed myself
Exercised
Sat down, ate slowly
Gave myself credit during the day
Read my reminder cards
Built up my resistance muscle
Ate according to plan/schedule
Read part of a Beck book
Created a "worth it" memoriy
Logged onto Sparkpeople Beck group

I figured that since there doesn't appear to be a "formal" list, I can use this and track accordingly. It's hard to do all items, but it's helpful to read the list every day. Hope this helps!

I am starting the Bob Harper "Skinny Rules" diet today. My diet coach speaks highly of it and it seems like a reasonable plan. Maybe a little high in protein.

A little anxious because it takes SO LONG to get a new meal plan in place and I'll need to get better about prep since school starts on Monday. But I'm telling myself...

Oh Dear Pressingon. That is pretty goofy of us not to be able to answer that question right off the bat. Just in case the team leaders did not notice your question I think I will ask them because I am interested too. Meantime here is a link to the Judith Beck's website where she has downloadable charts. The Foundation Strategies looks the most like what you are asking about:

http://www.beckdietsolution.com/SiteData
/docs/Foundation/e0d95eae31f86ca6/Foun
dation%20Strategies%20Checklist.pdf



Well I could do that but why would I want to?

The term "principles checklist" is used in one of our team goals. I wonder if it is referring to the check list at the end of each day?

I'll be interested in the answer. I don't recall a "principles checklist." Good question! Can you tell us the page number of your reference? Maybe I can figure it out from the context.

emoticon Howdy, fellow teammates. This is my first check-in. I've recently joined the team and have been reading BDS. Today I start day one making my first response card on why I want to lose weight. I've already learned some great stuff in the first four chapters of the book. I look forward to reading some of your blogs from the reboot challenge.

Can anyone tell me what the Beck principles check list is mentioned in the team goals?

I'm beginning to think I've bitten off more than I can chew!! Curves this morning, haircut, grocery shopping, got my flu shot, made antipasto, got potatoes mashed and all ready to make perogies tomorrow. I still have to make the dough and do dinner dishes, trouble is my arm is getting more and more sore. Darn, I haven't had a sore arm from a shot for a long time. I think the pharmacist gave it higher up on my arm than usual and that's the problem. As soon as I get that dough made I will be sinking into a hot bath with lots of Epsom salts. Hope that makes it better cause I have a lot of mashed potatoes to make into perogies plus I have Curves and more shopping to do tomorrow too.

I am almost ready for Christmas, a couple presents to pick up, 3 kinds of squares to make and meatballs and gravy to do but those can wait until next week.

I found a recipe for 2 different kinds of squares a while ago and both are delicious. One is simply putting the contents of a one step Angel Food mix into a bowl, adding a 20 oz. can of pineapple, (with juice), mix it up, (it fizzes), pour into a 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (Don't follow the directions on the cake mix just pour the powder into the bowl) It is very moist and yummy. The other is called Banana Cake Brownies and can be found on internet. It is yummy too I use a larger cake pan for it. I think it is about 9 x 15 or 16. Very moist as well and I just put a thin coating of icing on it. Yes, ladies I am making these and immediately getting them out of the house!!! December 23 will be a good day for me to go that along with the meatballs.

Have a happy evening everyone. I am heading back into the kitchen.

Because shutting everything off/out is hard! I had no idea how many bites, nibbles and tastes I took before I sat down until I began focusing on it. I think part of it is that we're all so busy and rushing about. I sit down and focus but haven't made it to the point of turning off the tv. Progress.

I like that idea, Jodie. I've been reading my advantages daily, but I haven't made that bold move to sit down to eat. My version of that would be turning off the TV and sitting at the table instead of the sofa. This would be such a big improvement for me. Why am I so resistant to just try it?!

Hey, Becksters! I started using a planner again to take credit for a few things that are important to me: tracking nutrition, strength training, cardio, no sugar, 10k steps.

I'm stoked to fill my calendar with stickers. I have a different colored star for each thing I'm taking credit for. Yesterday, I hit all 5. Here's an example of what I did in October 2013. It was very inspirational and takes no time at all.

Hi folks! I've been battling ear problems too-- lots of vertigo and dizzyness. I'm hoping its because of all the storms we've had here in the past month.

I've also been diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back. I'm still waiting for a PT referral to come through to give me a better idea of what I can and can't do, therapy wise

Beck's DAILY Facebook post:

Wednesday Sabotage: Oh, no, Ive messed up on my diet. This is really terrible!

Response: No, its not terrible, its just a mistake. Its not a catastrophe, its just a mistake. Telling myself that its terrible will demoralize me and make it seem like a much bigger deal, and these things will make it harder to get back on track. I just need to label this a mistake and move on.

This is exactly what I needed to top off a good day. A reminder that oh well is just the right tool to handle things I am powerless over...like an injured leg. Fortunately for me it is healing well. And if it does not I still have options as long as I am up for moving past regrets. Ah. Good stuff.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

Tuesday Reality Check: Sometimes in dieting (and in life), you just have to say, Oh, well. To us, this means: I dont like this situation, but theres nothing I can do to change it (not if I want to achieve my goal) so I just have to accept it, stop fighting against it, and move on.
