I'm happy to be a diet coach if anyone wants one. I have buddied up with several people for WeightWatchers etc. I see a diet coach (haven't got to day 6 yet!) as just someone to encourage us? Someone you can contact if things get hard? Hubby is super supportive.

As for people leaving their husbands when they lose weight... well I suppose Lisa-120's hubby may have got that from the fact that maybe when people leave their husbands they lose weight, so it's kinda upside down thinking if you see what I mean?..... I certainly will not be leaving mine! Part of the reason I'm losing weight is so I can have a longer healthier more active enjoyable life with him! :-)

Day 6 is the first challenging day for me. I am leaning to using this team or a spark buddy for a diet coach. My thoughts are that my DH would be awesome IF he was willing to do it. It might help him not encourage me to have another specialty coffee or go out for dinner. We already have a challenge of his belief that people who lose weight leave their spouses. My mom is super supportive, but I doubt she would hold me accountable. My sister has lost a substantial amount of weight with WW, but she isn't active and is already super busy with her family. I have had a friend offer before, but she is a little opinionated and I think she would be upset if I didn't do things her way.

I would love to hear the experiences of people who have done this already with their diet coach. What worked? What didn't?

I have found a diet coach on team 55+ladies. We are discussing the book there too.
Most of them are using the spark coach but I don't have that. I am rereading and reading this book because I didn't do everything to start with so on day 6 in one team and day 18 on the other. I have made my response cards bigger this time on neon index cards...so they are in my face all the time.

Periwinkle if that works then work it. I'd never use my hubbie. LOL. Well hear goes after being at spark what I have learned about trying to get exercise/diet buddies???????????????? Many folk work and I am a SAHM been that way for years by choice! I can get on the computer in the early morning and late at night when the kids are gone to school. Now in the summer that is a struggle. Now most 52 most in my neighborhood of color don't exercise diabetic or not. I see many none minority exercise. They work I don't. In the beginning of joining spark I thought I had to have a spark workout buddy. Others have more issues then I do and end up quitting. But after many attempts it did not work for me. Some are not committed to exercise. Yep i am still working on my eating. I'd love to have a workout buddy. But being some are not committed that has made me reconsider trying to find one. I am a lone wolf when it comes to exercise. I do not talk while working it is distracting to have some talking all the time. It slows me down. Probably sounds mean but when I workout I want all my energies focused on getting the job done. Ladies at the gym talk so much I do not see how they get anything done.????????????? So I have decided to use this team for supports. I probably could go to the help line more though.....................lone wolf gotta learn new trick especially when I need help.

I am going to use my husband as my coach. He is usually very supportive and encouraging, but also willing to hold me accountable. I say usually because I suggested we get a treadmill and he totally blanched and told me that it would be a waste of money b/c I'd never use it! I think that's more reflective of his penny-pinching than his lack of support for me. In general, he's very interested to hear about my weigh-ins, has helped me put together my vision collage, gets my exercise accoutrements ready before I need to work out and always reminds me to keep positive. This was an easy choice!

My problem is that I'm usually the coach but...find it hard to be accountable to others. It took me a long time to admit that I binge. I admited to it in one of the forums I started and only recently admited to real friends that I have a problem. Including friends that have known me for years.

I think I will continue to use the teams in peertrainer that I belong to as there are several people on the same sort of diet as me and there is one team member that is working through the Beck solution book.

I am going to use you guys as you seem great and have been very helpful and motivating.

I might use my 17 year old daughter if she agrees. My main concern is for her not to have hang ups or food issues. She is slim and eats sensibly. She can have chocolate lying around her room for days on end and it won't tempt her.

I started out with Atkins almost a year ago so I have a group that is still active although a lot of us moved on to other diets and we remain accountable. Mention our "cheats" according to Atkins and encourage each other. I am going to continue using that group as my sounding board.

I am following a primal template diet as my main diet and what the dietitian recommended as a backup plan.



The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

I agree with you! The best part about this site is that there is always someone or an article or a blog or something....to help provide support when you need it. Glad to hear this time around you realized what wasn't working for you in the past and you are making changes.

All the best.

This is where I fell down when I did Beck before. I couldn't find any support so went to first Weightwatchers and then Slimming World for support. Neither worked because I don't work well with either diet. On Spark I have found buddies and spark friends who have really encouraged me. And I love that I can get on here whenever I like for as long as I like. And encouraging other people helps me too. I don't think any of my buddies eat and exercise anything like I do, we're all different, but we can all be there for each other. And there are so many ways to encourage and be encouraged. Emails, comments, likes, topic posts etc etc.

I am feeling great! I have dedicated some extra time today & I have completed day 4,5,6.

So, my hubby & I had a dispute during my first couple of days about going out to eat together for fast food. Despie my argument, he has agreed to be my diet coach. He has promised me to be supportive & helpful in my journey to a happier, healthier ME.

For my own sanity, I am also using the W8Watchers Forums & Sparkpeople as my backup diet coaches. I think hearing what other people have gone through is helping me stay focused & not lose sight of the big picture.

I feel like such a lucky girl tonight.

XOXO

A commited Diet Coach can be hard to find!

I have a good support system in my family even though they do not understand the highs and lows or stuggles people that have had WLS have.

I also have a Site that is very supportive and encouraging that I consider to be my WLS Family, they are not familar with TBDS though.

So, this is a fun step for me because I am super social anyhow. I will of course be checking in with this team everyday so that is a big help. I now have a spark buddy that I will be emailing back and forth once a week....at least for the first few months and hopefully longer :) I have my mom who also wants to lose weight but I don't think she can really be my coach. We are kinda bad for each other....when we eat together it is always like some crazy overeatting....and Lord knows we don't need to go to food shopping together! But, I think that if we can both get commited to this then maybe we can start helping each other. I am also going to be joining a Weight Watchers meeting here so I am sure I will meet some people there. YAY for setting up a support team!

Be blessed,
Dawn

I got a coach! A bit of a different approach, I've bought a packet of training sessions from a personal trainer who does everything from weight loss coaching to bodybuilding competitions. While I'm not looking for the latter, I truly believe that strength training is SOOOOOO important to weight loss and fitness - and I'm excited to have the "coach" be about "building fitness" instead of "weight loss". My first session in June 6th - and just having that scheduled has energized my motivation to stay on track with my eating plans

for some reason, this is a tough one for me -- I don't feel like telling anyone about my re-focusing for weight loss. but you guys know so maybe that's enough, eh?

Hi Elly. This is a great group for support. I'm going through Beck for the first time and KNOW I wouldn't be as faithful to the program as I am without all these great folks cheering me along and offering guidance and accountability. Welcome and Best Wishes for Success!!!!

Hello Sparks!

I am new to spark people and new to Beck. Today is my Day 6. Everything is making sense so far, not easier to change habits and to make myself sit down / eat mindfully etc - BUT I'm trying and I will get there.

I don't really have anyone who could be my diet coach so I'm hoping people in this group will hold me accountable and give me a kick up the bum when needed.

Have a lovely day. x

I have not looked intently for a SparkBuddy, and I don't yet have one. The SparkPeople group is helping me a lot, though. The Teams have taught me so much that I am piecing into my lifestyle. The articles are great.

I talked to my husband this morning and explained what I will need from my Diet Coach, and he accepted the challenge. I think he was surprised (and even a little pleased) that I asked him. I know that I can depend on him to support my efforts and call me out on my mistakes. He is a really special guy!

Hi all!

I'm starting the Beck Solution again. I'm going to count on my spark friends to keep me accountable.

Today, I compare myself to one other person: me yesterday.

I decided to ask my sister to be my diet coach.
She knows me better than anyone else. She said she should be the person to do it because if I needed to talk to anyone I would go to her anyway. She is right.
hopefully it will get her in the mood to eat healthier too.

I do not see a diet coach in sight.
I am very close to my sister and she is next door and available. She is overweight, but dieting is not a priority for her a this time.
My husband knows just enough about nutrition to set me off. He is more of a food police than a diet coach.
This has hurt my feelings and caused me to overeat in the past. I am not going there.
I love him very much; but I do not want a food police!!!
I have said all that to say this:
I NEED A DIET COACH BUDDY!!!!!!!!
I use the nutritional tracker.
My menu is made for the day.
I follow my menu and if things change, I revise my nutritional tracker.
I am 70 years old.
I need to lose 30 pounds.
I sometimes eat emotionally.
I enjoy eating what I consider a healthy diet; with a few less healthy food choices.
(Bacon,Butter,etc in moderation and counted)
I am sugar free now for 81 days because I am a sugar addict. The only bite I can control is the first bite.
I have decided I must cut my calorie intake.
My menu total for today is 1236 (less than usual)
Contact me, if you think we can work together.

My son lives with me and has agreed to help with the coaching. He has OCD and tends to get too involved (obsessively). So I will be depending on this team to help me out some of the time.

I'm going to have to ponder this one. When I tried this before I asked my best friend. At the time she was very busy traveling for work so it was a chore to check in with her.

I am going to use my husband and my mom. They are both supportive and both easily accessed.

back again :-) Looking for a diet coach. My goal is to lose 5-7 lbs/month from July til December. I've lost 7 lbs so far. Want to lose 35 lbs. Hoping to find someone to check in with. I'm busy, and I know other people are too. Send me a personal message if you're interested.

Hey, does anyone want to be Beck Diet buddies/coaches with me?

I'm 29, and I'd like to lose about 20lbs. I started a blog to keep me on track (lizzy-beckdietsolution.blogspot.com/ ), but it would probably be more effective if someone actually read it!

Anyone with similar goals?

I'm struggling with this one. I would like to have a coach, but can't think of someone...I'm going to spend the weekend thinking about this.

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

I asked my husband to be my coach, telling him I need him to help me out when he sees me making bad decisions. I'm not sure how this will work out because I often feel like he relies on me to diet for him (meaning make the food choices for him). I am hoping to connect with someone on SP.

Like a few others in recent postings, local support has been minimal, but I do have a couple of newly supportive friends I think I can count on for the rough patches daily. If there's anyone out there who wants to be in contact at least weekly, message me here on SP.

ALICE DAY REVIEWS:

Well Claudia was my diet coach, but lately we have been enabling eachother to make really bad decisions. We work together at two different jobs, and she crashes on my couch at least 3 days a week. That means mornings we sleep in togehter and rush over to Dunkin Donuts or Panera for a fast breakfast sandwich. Then at break we will head to Wendy's or Frishes for lunch. It makes me sick to think about all of the mediocre food I have been eating that has set me back. I am so much more active these days because I have 2 jobs and school, even if I dont have time to fit working out in, i'm more active through out the day then I have ever been. Some of that SHOULD pay off, but it cant if I am eating like a dummy too. It's super easy for me to not eat out. I ENJOY cooking, and I need to get back into planning my days (food/menus). I will come HERE for support. I have found so many good friends this time around on SP. And guess where I have found all of them? Right here on BECK. I just should take advantage of such an awesome (AND FREE) community. I couldnt pay for this kind of support ;)

My friend Claudia and I bought this book together, so naturally she will be my diet coach.

She has had a lot of trouble starting the program, and I'm not going to let that discourage me. She really is a great motivator even if she isnt following this book with me. We still talk daily about the foods we eat, and we work out together at least once a week.

It's true we really motivate each other. And I like being accountable to someone for my actions.

I don't really have one specific diet coach per se. However, my sister and my husband will be the "in person" coaches to help me out.

But I also rely on everyone I know on spark too!

Hey everyone! I've tried to do beck before and I'm back again! Making sure to do each step this time!! :-) So... here I am looking for a diet coach. Ireally would like a one on one coach but if push-comes-to-shove I can use the group for guidance I guess :-D.

Let me know if you're interested. I prefer someone who wants to email at least weekly... I'm pretty busy myself but I want to make it happen this time, so I want to stay on track! Thanks guys!

I have several friends that I keep up with about my eating and exercising. This team is my coach. I am praying that I find a live coach or someone. I will start back walking at the college in the student center. hopefully I will find someone there. I always have my prayer partner at home. We talk and pray together.

I'm pretty sure that the people here and on the LBF 21-day team can be my coach, but if anyone is interested in partnering up - checking in through emails or ichat or something, I'm willing.

The people closest to me that I would confide in are all actually heavier than I am and I think they might be too easy on me. My other option is a recovering anorexic so that is NOT a good idea. DBF would do it, but he is perfectly supportive as is and I would hate to put the extra pressure on him.

So, if you think you can use a partner in this, give me a holler!

I have a co-worker who is my coach. We've been through a lot of weight issues together. She understands me and my issues but WON'T let me make excuses.

We have lunch together 4x a week and discuss the program.

I took a few extra days for Day 5, its so hard! And now I'm here to say that sp is my diet coach, along with some facebook friends from the Best Life website. I've been at this for so long I'm pretty sure I could become a nutritionist! It's behavior change that I need coaching on and that is what spark is all about!

I am using the Coaching Corner here for my coach(es). I do talk about some of the things I am learning with my DH and sister but there really isn't anyone in particular that can do this for me. The thing that I MUST do is ask for help if things get hard. I tend to not ask for help much with anything.

Also I am COMMITTED and if I find that I am struggling and cannot get things under control, then I will find a real live coach no matter what it takes to do this.

Well, OK. I guess you guys are my diet coaches. If anyone wants to do some (moderate) texting with me, that would probably be better. Because actually getting on line requires initiative, and if I always had that I'm guessing I wouldn't need this step. But for now I have initiative, so for now it's good.

I haven't been active on sp for years, but I sure need to be back. After I get a new battery for my scale I'll have to update the weight stuff too.

I just bit the bullet and bought a wii--anybody else have one? It'll be here soon--it's "out for delivery." Amazon has a thing through the end of the year--no interest or payments for 90 days if you pay it off in that time. And $30 off too. Soooooooo--big hopes for this coming year.

I'm trying to use SP as my "diet coach". I've been a member for ages, but never really participated regularly. I also talk to best friend sort of as any exercise coach. She's really gotten active and is really an inspiration for me.

This is the reason I use Spark. I'm doing some scaling back in some areas, but for me this team and a few others are my diet coach. When I had more time, all of Spark was my coach. I would read the articles and do all the points. Some of that is having to be limited, but my teams are important. This team and others are my coaches.

I joined today because of Day 6. I am a big fan of the Beck Diet Solution. I've made real progress using the program in the past, but I don't think I reached the full Beck potential because I skipped steps. I think with this program, you absolutely get what you put in. This time around, I'm going to try not skipping any steps. This one (6) was always sort of an annoyance for me, because it's awkward to talk about dieting with real people and I'm certainly not going to pay someone. I will check in daily, and if anyone else is looking for a Beck buddy, I'd be happy to have and provide support.

I use my Sparkteams as my coach. You can sit down and post anytime you need to and someone is usually around to respond. Especially if you have more than one team. So, its kind of like having a coach you can call anytime you want. I have been doing Spark since 2007 and did another online program before that. What I like about online is that you can make it work with your schedule and get the support when you need it.

I'm thinking about asking my mom, but I don't have a good feeling about it. I wonder, from the people that have tried it, what works better? Can I use SP for my coach? I got the impression from the book, that I needed to be able to readily phone this person up and talk.

I asked my best friend Amber to be my official coach. She is one of my best cheerleaders. She asked if I would do the same for her-so now it will be a partnership.

I also enlisted my my mom as she thinks I can do no wrong for pick me up. And my husband is my workout buddy.

PS-this mindul eating is really going to be a struggle for me! I am going to be peristant!!!

Finding a coach is kind of tough for me. I am not accustom to asking for support. It would be great to find someone IRL that I could be accountable to. (perhaps a therapist) Great guilt comes over me if I have to show my face, so it helps keep me honest.

Rereading Day 6 I think I know who I will ask to be my coach, but I will continue to use SparkPeople and seek out other sources of support.

BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT!

I have the Complete Beck Diet for Life, so I'm going to do these in the order of the tasks presented in that book.

Task 4: Get a diet Buddy.
This team and other teams I'm on are my diet buddy or coach.

I'm looking for a diet buddy as well. I'd rather have somebody who can call/text me and that I can call or text back. The reason is: If I'm staring down a pastry, I'd like to feel I have someone to go to for help. I have an Overeaters Anonymous meeting in my area that I wanna start going to but it'll be hard finding someone doing Beck. I also wanna be there for somebody when they need encouragement and support. For some reason helping others, helps myself. Maybe that's why people say those who teach often learn best. Is there anybody out there who needs a DIET MOTIVATIONAL, INSPIRATIONAL, POSITIVE & LIFE ENHANCING COACH/ADVISOR/THERAPIST/FRIEND?!!! Because I have alot of great tips and tricks, but the knowledge is no good if there's nobody to share and use them with. It sucks following this journey alone (sadface) lol

I guess this team will be my Diet Coach. I really don't have anybody in real life that understands the Beck way of life.
I love the support I read about here, everybody has taught me so much already.
If anyone wants to be an email coach I am interested.

Hey All...I came across something in the book today and am posting it in response to some of the posts indicating that one should have a face-to-face person as their diet coach and not to rely on SP.

From 'the Beck Diet Solution' under How to Find a Diet Coach, p.86:

"Investigate internet support. Face-to-face interaction is usually more desirable, but if you absolutely can't meet with someone in person, investigate weight-loss support groups on the Internet. A study conducted at the University of Vermont in Burlington found that participants who enrolled in a weight-maintenance program over the Internet sustained the SAME AMOUNT OF WEIGHT LOSS as participants who met with a support group in person."

So just saying...I mainly rely on this website as my support even though my husband and friends know about my weight-loss goals and efforts...they know about it and are supportive, but many of them don't know about or do the Beck Solution or Naturally Thin specifically...they all have their "own way"...LOL...which is fine too, but I come here to get support specifically for the methods I am studying and practicing. And I feel good about it because even the Beck book itself is good with it ;)

Day 6: Find a Diet Coach
I have no real support outside of Spark People. So I will consider my various teams as my diet Coach. I have made a number of good friends on Spark People and we do serve each other in this way. emoticon

Hey Team! I have already done this day... but I need a diet buddy that is available to email regularly about diet issues. I'm not needy or anything... I usually don't like to ask for help BUT I do think its important to have someone who knows you well and is willing to encourage you. I am very busy very very busy.... but I have time to send a one line email when needed :-D So... if anyone is interested and still lookign for a buddy please let me know :-D

Oh and i have found that I don't want to burden the ppl in my life who I see daily... most of them say I look great and not to worry about it. lol.

I'm going to rely on SparkPeople. I've tried using real-life friends, but noone seems to really want to support me - family included - my mom in particular keeps buying things like doughnuts for the whole family, with the caveat "but I didn't want to leave you out." I've realized that I do far better when I'm out on the road performing than I do at home.

I m using Spark and my husband for support. He is trying to loose weight too so it makes it easier.

Most people never get past their first wind to know they have a second.

I'm using a combination of this board, another online forum, and phone calls with a friend from that forum. I should have plenty of support.

My sister is probably going to be my main coach. I also have some friends that will be helpful. I am also planning on using this team and other spark teams for my support. I will try to check in so I can stay on track.

Thanks for your responses. I've mulled over it for a few days and have decided to use the spark boards. I am much more confident divulging my most personal weight issues here, as we all know what it's like.

Thanks

Actually, Judith Beck does encourage using groups like this one as your coach. That is what I use this team for. I check in when I do and report my progress.

I understand the dilema. It's hard to divulge our personal inner thoughts to people we already know. I think it's easier to be candid here; we're all going through similar trials. It helps to hear people struggling and conquering those struggles. Feel free to use us!

Well, I'm actually quite stumped on this one. I really don't know how to pick one, or who to ask as I find my weight issues incredibly personal and hard to talk about.

On one hand I thought I should ask my husband as I see him every day and it would be good for him to understand what I'm going through, but he is very, very lean and never gains so much as a pound, so I don't actually think he would understand at all.

This is so far the hardest thing I've had to come up with on the program.
