Had my two scones, but boy, did I want more, and there were a lot left over because not very many people showed up to the event. I had promised to bring cherries to my second social event (rare for me to have two in one day), but forgot them. The others were not waiting for them at all. I had a thought to have some when I got home, but realized I was not one bit hungry, so let them go. Will pack some for lunch tomorrow, my first day back to work (starting the new school year) after being on break since the last Friday in June. Will leave "room" in my eating for the morning coffee and "breakfast" provided by our new principal.

That is so smart of you, OOLALA. Unless we can accept that there are certain occasions that warrent times to adjust our food intake, we can't do this for long. And doing this for the long haul is what it's all about. That tea sounds lovely. emoticon

Annpaul, it could be salt. I like olives and did have a few in my salad. That's the only "salt" I can really think of. I think it's just that I have let myself go for so long that I didn't notice my stomach before I started on this healthy program. I really let myself go :(

Honeslty uptoit, very unlikely it will last. Water weight fluctuates a lot unless you eat quite restricted food sources. The good news is you can use Beck to work out the eating routines that will allow for worthy fluctuations, but maintainable fat loss over time. That's worth a lot more than the losses from a rarely done medical procedure!

These days I track only on weekends. I'm amazed that after a period of years, even when I eat a bit randomly (which is something I consider important to allow myself at various planned times), my nutrient ratios tend to stay in similar ranges. It's been worth the adjustments to get here.

I will be attending a tea tomorrow and am planning to have two scones with clotted cream. My choices the rest of the day will allow for them.

Congrats on the healthy eating and exercising. As far as the puffy belly, imho I don't think that's possible, but what about bloat from salty foods? I feel puffy when I eat olives, cheese, stuff that others might consider healthy but with me I'm sensitive to sodium. I also love salty stuff and eat it anyway. Do you keep a food diary to see if it's something you're eating that you might be sensitive to, like gluten?

This is my third day of mindful eating and exercising. The past two days have been great but when I look down at my stomach, it seems to have got bigger. I don't have a scale but I am wondering whether drinking more water will--short term--make my stomach pooch out more???

So I feel like the biggest cheater ever! I lost three pounds overnight because I just had a colonoscopy. I knew I would lose but I wanted to write it down so I could springboard off that loss. Do you think any of it will last? If I could only keep maybe one or two of those cheater pounds off I would be so happy!

I have been off my game for the past couple of days because of the changes in my life. I found I needed to read my BDS Response Cards Twice to get back to my normal routine. emoticon I'm glad i did. If i need to do that to regroup, I will gladly do it. I will also reread my BDS book and the posts on this SparkTeam. So glad i found this!! Thanks for all your help! emoticon

Thank you for organizing the Pink Blue challenge - seems to be a trickier task than pink where we have the days lined up.
There are some historical threads but they were not used as much as the 42 days of pink BDS book, I have collected them here some time ago:

Wow, I gotta check in here more often! Missed a ton of stuff!

Kriszta, I eat like you do. In fact, our nutrition plan is about the same. I eat meat, but very little. Mostly beans and eggs for protein, and no sugar or flour, 3 meals.

If anyone wants to do another Pink book challenge, let me know. I'm going to do a Blue one soon, but I kept all my notes so I can run a Pink challenge at any time. I don't have the Green book. I did, but returned it because the diet plan didn't seem right for me as a diabetic at the time.

Never been this excited practicing sticking to my plan!!

I'm on not specific "diet." I eat three meals a day plus a couple of healthy snacks. I use SparkPeople nutrition tracker to stay within my calories and nutrient ranges. I measure all servings to the best of my abilities. I don't restrict any foods but limit my intake to red meat, sugary treats, processed and most fast foods.

finished the "pink" Beck book.
I'm going to start over because there's so much information I don't want to miss one nugget!

Thanks everyone for posting. I don't always post, but I do about 2 hours of Spark reading every morning. I am helped by the thought that "I'm not alone."

Let's make today great on purpose!

I eat 3 meals a day, nothing between meals.
No sugar, no white flour - but I eat a lot of whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruit.
Lots of vegetables, some eggs, diary, olive oil, butter, dark chocolate.
I very rarely eat meat.
I know my quantities from SP Nutrition tracker and I measure everything on a kitchen scale.

Just saying . . . . .
Trying to find the right balance in maintenance mode. While I continue to use the tools and strategies of Beck Diet Solution and SparkPeople, I need to fine tune my exercise and nutrition plan. A work in progress.

I have been planning my meals in writing the day before (sometimes breakfast) since 14th October 2016, and monitor my eating after each meal (sometimes at the end of the day).
I'm still amazed how little time and effort it takes, usually 2-3 minutes, maybe 5-6 minutes if it is a complicated day.
And it benefits me on so many levels!
-no struggling, no cravings - I don't even think of food outside actual time of planning, preparing and eating food
-I know exactly what I'll have for dinner, and I know how it will feel: delicious, satisfying, mildly pleasant - and I have no unrealistic expectations that it will relieve stress or boredom, or make me happy - it is only a meal
-I have all my food written in front of me so I have to see it is plenty, especially dinners (like tonight I'll have brown rice, lentils, olive oil, tomatoes, an apple and 2 squares of dark chocolate for dinner
-if I eat something unplanned, I write and circle it - so I know exactly what I ate, and if my weight starts creeping up (it doesn't) I will immediately know what went wrong - no worries!
I'm so glad I found Beck Diet Solution!

Back from vacation in Hawaii and I'm proud to report that YES, I'm down a pound! I used my Beck's skills daily and enjoyed my trip without revolving it around food and alcohol. Going to be out of town again in May for a couple of weeks so I'm feeling confident that I can stay on plan. By the way, my DH weighed when he got home and was up 5 pounds... that would have been typical for me in the past also. Whew! Dodged that bullet.

Bowdiddle, You're not the only needing extra time. Some of these concepts that are my worst struggles, I feel I could spend a week on that particular day. These are concepts I need to constantly review.

You take whatever time you need as it's your journey. We can always come here to discuss things if need be.

Bowdiddle- that is such a smart thing to do if that is what you need/want! I think so much of this is about listening to ourselves/ our bodies, and doing the book your way is just that!
Awesome!

I have found myself moving slower than the team. I'm learning so much!
Like today- learning how to overcome cravings. I'm going to stop here a while. Then I'll move on.

Rhonda- You have inspired me! We will be traveling a lot in the next month and I was bemoaning to my husband that I have worked to hard to blow it all on going away! Luckily both vacations are going to include a lot of walking but alcohol and food can become a real problem on the first one. I am trying to come up with some strategies for that week.

I have had a chance to practice a number of Beck skills this past week. We are vacationing in Hawaii and I am committed to staying on track. We travel a LOT and if I give myself permission to indulge because I'm out of town, traveling or on vacation I would be a real porker. This past week, I haven't been able to weigh but have stayed within my calorie range, skipped desserts and sweets, eaten reasonably and haven't had any alcohol. I'll be home on Friday and I'm keeping fingers crossed that I'll maybe be down a bit. Hope you are all had a great week and sending positive thoughts for the week ahead. Oh, and Happy Earth Day!

I understand the stress- I felt that as well when I overdid on Easter. It is almost relaxing to be back to the routine!

We can do this!!

Back on track yesterday after binging on sweets on Easter. It is such a relief to get back to a routine I feel confident about. I was surprise how stressed out I became after over eating.

Not sure how I managed to 'lose' a week. I had a few indulgences on Easter - nothing too bad, nothing too 'much',but it is amazing to realize how my body responds to certain things. Lessons learned (and hopefully remembered). Getting back to it. I will be catching up on reading today.

I caught up on my days. Still working on eating while sitting and eating mindfully. I managed my breakfast. One mindful meal done. Two to go.

After posting for 42 days straight as I went through the Becks Pink Book, it became a habit. Now I'm reading Chi Running and making a daily synopsis of my reading in my Spark Journal. I hope this is a new habit that sticks as I can see the benefit of reading just a few pages consistently. Another type of success I gained from Becks!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter. I made a ham dinner for the family with several sides. I ate mindfully and in moderation... and no bread or dessert! Hooray... hoping that I see a loss for the week on the scale in the morning. Fingers Crossed!

I'm feeling good and giving myself credit for making a good choice tonight when we ate out for my daughters "birthday" dinner. Her birthday was actually in December but schedule conflicts kept coming up so we finally did her birthday dinner. We went to an Italian restaurant which of course puts a huge basket of bread on the table. I didn't have any bread and didn't order wine! Score. I ordered a house green salad and pesto/garlic linguine with grilled chicken, I only ate about 1/2 cup of the linguine and the chicken and then gave the rest to my DH. It was delicious and I feel good that I enjoyed the evening and stayed on course.

I read day1 (again) and rewrote my "why I want to lose weight" list - I made 3 copies - I want to be comfortable in my smallest jeans again! I need to stop "going up" and head back down. I heard this quote by Joyce Meyer and want it to be my "mantra." "I set my mind, and I will keep it set." (From "Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth." Col. 3:2)
