I like your idea of using your blog to give yourself credit. I always forget this one but made a few response cards to remind me, so when I read my response cards this morning...it reminded me...giving myself credit today for planning my meals, bringing in my lunch to work (including a substantial healthy snack in the afternoon) and signing up for a yoga class right after work. Now, I just have to make sure I leave with enough time to get there!!

I am loving the wrist band idea. Maybe I will reward myself with a little braclet for all the good choices I have made so far. I also plan to use my blog on my page to give myself credit each day.

I'm so glad I figured out how to scroll down to find these older posts! I'm working through the Beck book and today is Day Four: Give Yourself Credit. I am going to add the wrist band idea. Modified, because I wear a medic alert bracelet but I can put a little reminder charm on it. Thanks!

I really like the idea of wearing a band round your wrist to remind you to give yourself credit. Every time I've seen it - today! - I've given myself a big smile. It's still not lunchtime, and I can pat myself on the back for having gone to gym, having walked there instead of taking the car, having a nice breakfast, and for getting up from the table!

Today I give myself credit for taking my weekly walk with my sister, even though it was beastly hot outside. emoticon

And I give myself credit for making many smart choices in what to eat. Granted, I strayed from the straight and narrow later in the day, but I really could have eaten poorly all day long---but I didn't! emoticon

I like that a whole lot, too, Rose. I did a great workout at the gym this morning and I gave myself credit. A friend at the gym said I looked good and I gave myself credit for earning that compliment. Probably biggest of all, I had a bad slip of unplanned eating this week and I did not give up; I only yelled at myself a little (credit for improvement) and immediately re-committed to healthy living.

I think, at least for me, it would be helpful if I start posting on the daily check-in forum what I give myself credit for during the day. I have a tendency to only come on the sight when I'm struggling but Dr.Beck focuses a lot on giving ourselves credit and I think it would help! Also, it's great that we help each other with issues and share our struggles but I think if we share our little daily achievements we may help one another :). So here's my pledge to start that tonight!

I've gotten a bit better at giving myself credit. It used to be that I felt that I couldn't be that "self-centered," but I know now that it has nothing to do with that.

Now I will occasionally give myself an "Atta girl!" What I struggle with, though, is realizing that one wrong decision (such as unplanned eating) doesn't cancel out the rest of the day's successes.

Giving myself credit for:

Being aware when I am almost eating standing up
Going to a party and not eating a thing because I wasn't hungry
Eating 1 chocolate chip cookie only
Eating 1/2 a cup of fro yo and no more
Not eating seconds (although I did put loads of food on my plate)
Getting through the weekend without feeling deprived

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

For Day #4, I have completed a daily list of things that I am giving myself credit for. I am keeping a journal from the very beginning of Day #1 - and, hoping that i can reflect on my journal in difficult times on my weight loss journey. I have posted my credits in the Daily Check-In thread on BDS Spark Team Page.

Day 4, Give Yourself Credit. I adore this one! Let's do this one really well! I want to be bold about it. I plan to post something daily, or as close as possible. I commit to focusing on what I'm doing right and strengthen those habits.

Today, I finished Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5. I had the day off work so I could dedicate some time to it.



Warmly,
Charlene

Day 4
Give yourself credit

This one is a hard one for me... because I have to feel worthy in order to give myself credit and believe it!

Today, I give myself credit for starting the Becks Diet again and making it to day 4 already.

One quick note about bodyrock is that the girl is sometimes not very um.......modest with her clothes and the workouts sometimes have sexy names. She is actually quite sweet though.

Val if you like interval training you should check out www.bodyrocktv.net it's a great site with interesting interval workouts. Don't be intimidated I have to modify most the exercises, and get creative with the equipment she uses. I am planning on quitting my gym this week and just do twenty minutes of interval training five days, and try to be active with my kids. I also like kettle bells and do some k bell I tervals too. I love the gym but it's time co summing and expensive. Maybe one day but for now I think this is best.

You both are doing great resisting treats. It's so hard this time of year. I made Halloween cupcakes with my daughter. I had half a cupcake. I've done much worse damage in the past. I did totally resist indulging in ice cream Friday night when my husband and daughter were eating it. That's always a toughie for me. Refraining from treats when everyone else is eating them.

I beat my best time on the espresso bike at the gym.

Love, love, love this one. This is a step I think I've internalized. Over the last months as so much was out of my control and many of the decisions about things I could control were not the best decisions for my health and fitness. Still, there was a lot to take credit for and I mostly stayed very focused on that. I think it made a big, big difference in that I never got discouraged or gave up on myself and eventually I did what I knew I would do... started finding my way back to a new version of my healthy normal.

aaahh... remembering to give ourselves credit for good choices. It's like a reward everytime I remember to do this.

Today, I'm giving myself credit for being in my "chicken & broccoli" mindset. Good food, regular eating of small-moderate portions. What a nice habit to fall back into...

I woke up at 2 am, and would normally go downstairs for a bowl of cereal, but instead - I stayed in bed. It took about 30 min, but I went back to sleep and was fine until breakfast this morning.

Hi Friends!

I'm on Day Four today! Just had my breakfast sitting down and I gave myself credit for that... But it's not so much the giving myself credit that I have a hard time with. In fact, I'm probably one of my own biggest cheerleaders. Ironically though, I know I tend to use a lot of self-deprecating humour. I make like I don't mean it, but if I didn't mean it, then why did I say it at all? So I'm going to call myself out and aim to keep all my self-talk POSITIVE, whether its with myself and with other people.

Way to go, Dragonrose and Junebugg!

Today I ate a healthy breakfast and lunch... came home and had a couple of small pieces of pizza and less than a serving of ice cream... that's all that's left. Later, am planning on having broccoli and stopping at the store to pick up more salad before I pick up DD from driver's training.

Good for you, Dragon-Rose! Indeed you do rock!
I have much smaller things, but I am trying to concentrate on the positive things, so here goes: last night at bedtime I felt hungry - not famished, just slightly hungry. I did have some calories left that I could use if I wanted to eat more. Normally, I go downstairs to the kitchen and have a bowl of cereal and go to bed. Last night I decided to just ride it out, and see how the night went. I did wake up a couple of times and felt a bit hungry, but then too sleepy to go downstairs and do anything about it. I woke up, feeling no hungrier than usual, had my usual breakfast and was just fine. I think this will help me distinguish real hunger from the habit of wanting to feel full.

For the first time ever, I am giving myself full credit for my accomplishments today -- I ate a healthy breakfast, I packed some great snacks (and didn't hit the candy machine), I bought a Veggie Delight at Subway for lunch - no cheese, and only a 6" sandwich. I ate a healthy dinner, and I didn't snack this evening. I have planned a nice small snack to go with my hot tea before bed, and I will read my Reasons For Wanting To Lose Weight before I go to bed. I had a great day.

And I ROCK! emoticon

Way to go, Junebugg for not going over your calorie allowance too much and not throwing in the towel and eating without restraint.

I give myself credit for staying out of the chips for my DDs birthday, allowing hubby to hide the birthday cake and getting back on track by eating balance proportioned meals with lots of veggies and fruits.

I give myself credit for not throwing in the towel when I ate more pizza than I intended on Friday night (but still within my calorie allotment). I went over my calorie allotment on Saturday and Sunday, but only by a little. I did not tell myself that I "blew it" and then eat without restraint. I just realize that weekends are harder, and I will stay on track during the work week, and work on staying within my boundaries next weekend. I will get the hang of this.

Today I give myself credit for not stopping for fast food. I was out running errands and I felt lonely. I drove the Boulevard looking at the restaurants, but told myself that if I went home, I had chicken and rice and a salad (all planned) waiting. So, I got the heck outta there and went back home.

Here goes:
I have been soda free for over 2 weeks now.

I am making better choices at restaurants and the grocery store.

I am getting more sleep.

Yikes! This one has been hard for me! I'm on my third day of trying to REALLY implement this and "eating sitting down". I'm falling into the trap of telling myself that I don't deserve credit for doing things I should be doing anyways. We have plans tonight, but I'm going to get in a meeting with my coach tomorrow morning to discuss this. It's really hard for me! I think it all relates back to who I've always been as a person; I don't like to take credit for anything at all. I'd rather just be in the background, unnoticed. Now, having to be the one that stands out and "gets noticed", even if it is just by myself, is really tough. Hope to come back and post this evening with some things I've given myself credit for today.

Day 4: Give yourself credit.

I'm giving myself credit for not giving up and trying SP and making it work! To motivate myself to make different choices, exercise, and try to eat healthy is the lifestyle I wish to live for the rest of my life, even though I know it is the road less traveled in our society!

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

Hey! What do you know? I was the last one to post on this! Rereading what I wrote... It's true. Especially the part about "when I am on a positive roll I can continue, it's hard for me though, if i have a bump along the way". Oh how people do not change!

I can be positive though, when I am feeling positive. As long as my brain is thinking diet-mindfully, I will remember to give myself credit. STRENGTHEN THAT RESISTANCE MUSCLE!

I like this topic for the day. It's easy, personally, for me to remember to give myself credit. It's just remembering the credit when i run into snag in the diet. As long as I'm on a positive roll i can continue, it's hard for me though, if i have a bump along the way. It's important for me to remember that even if I do something negative, I should try to find the positive in the situation, not give up, and continue on with lots of positive energy!

Hmm I thought I did this one when I was on day 4 but I guess I missed it. However today is a great day to give myself credit!

Today I:
*Ate a healthy breakfast
*Bought a few small pieces of work out equipment that I think will really help me
*And I'm about to eat a super healthy lunch.

Hello everyone... on to day 4!

I have a couple plans for long-term sorts of credit, but I need to develop the habit of doing it all the time for little things! Anybody know where to get one of those clickers?? My mom had one ages ago but I haven't seen one in years.

For the long-term stuff: I give myself one 'point' for every ten minutes of exercise, and then points for every consecutive healthy meal I eat each day (one for meal one, two for meal two) and then later I will translate that into money for rewards! There are a couple big things that I would otherwise probably never spend the money on - laser hair removal is one of them. I think that's the ultimate prize. ;) Another is a bike motor... I think they only 'help' you instead of doing all the work for you, so I could go way farther (for my fitness level) and still get great exercise...

Oh, and at one point I put stickers on my calendar for doing cardio and strength training. I had little hearts for the cardio. :) Sounds a little silly but it was really great at the end of the month to see a month full of stickers. Now where did I put those...

Have a great day everyone!!

revisiting this give yourself credit. I do but some times I slip. No more slipping with this. Sometimes we hurt ourselves by own words. NO more!

I'm giving myself credit for writing everything down, even though I usually bag it after lunch and for keeping within the calorie range! And for reading the Advantage Response Card. I didn't think it would be as helpful as it is!

I also am reading my advantages of losing weight card. This morning, I read it into my phone and made
myself a voice memo. Now I can listen to it on my
way to work and on my way home in the car. Ithink
that will help me.

You haven't failed unless you quit trying.

Today, I give my self credit for being back here. After doing really well in January, I just stopped following all the good new habits I learned. But I am back and I am proud about that. Giving myself positive credits is really important, because I tend to be so hard on myself and that makes me give up!

Today I'm reviewing Day 4, Give Yourself Credit, and I'm giving myself credit for taking steps to get myself back on track.

-I took the time to motivate myself.
-I reviewed my Advantages of Releasing Weight list.
-I planned and tracked what I ate so far.
-I ate sitting down.

I'm giving myself credit for writing down ALL my foods today and noticing that my calories are all used up by 2 pm! I'm also giving myself credit for eating a VERY LITE supper (Probably scrambled egg whites, tea, and stewed tomatoes!)

If man made it I don't need it! If God made it I can eat it!

When I read this chapter this morning it was like a light bulb went off! Especially the scenerio about Steve going to dinner and resisting the bread basket for 10 minutes and then giving in and having 1 piece but decided to eat less of his potato. He then gave himself credit for resisting as long as he had and making a wise choice about cutting back on the rest of his meal. I thought - WHAT?! This is a good choice? See, usually I am the first scenerio - where the lady gives in to the bread, considers herself weak, and overeats the rest of them meal...only for me it would have been the rest of the month!

But I get it now...we will always be faced with choice and we can choose to do the wise, healthy thing and allow for "extras" or we can do the unhealthy thing and choice to binge. In the end we need to give ourselves credit for the small and large success.

So, today I give myself credit for sitting down to eat breakfast with my family. I give myself credit for stopping when I was full (even though my meal ended up only being an egg and a half!). I give myself credit for doing a 30 min Walk Away the Pounds video. And now, I give myself credit for posting about it and asking for your accountability in this journey!

Giving yourself credit really does put the right spin on things. Every good thing we do for ourselves is a step in the right direction!

I absolutely love this one. I don't think I have ever given myself proper credit for the things I do well. I give myself credit all the time now. And when I want or need an extra boost, I ask DH to give me credit. He is totally honest and he will not say something he doesn't believe. But he also doesn't think to encourage me much. We agreed when I did this day the first time that when I needed to hear "credit", I would ask and he would give. It works out really well.

Everyone--give yourself credit for every little thing you do right. You deserve it.

I had a tougher weekend than I would have liked, with cramping and cravings, but I was aware of feelings, my body and even the poor choices that I was making and to me that's something...being aware.

I did make some good choices with regard to exercise too.

In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.

I love this chapter. I'm always trying to encourage others in their accomplishments. Now I'm practicing giving myself credit and talking positive to myself.
I've worked very hard to get where I'm at in my life. Learning to give myself credit not only for the large accomplishments, but also for the small accomplishments. They are just as important.

I just finished a blog entry, "Couch Potato to 10k in 2 Years." I tooted my horn a bit, and then I read Day 4 and thought to myself, check! Now that I'm on sp and reading others success and it reminds me of my own!

I agree, it's really easier to be rough on myself. Telling myself congrats for doing stuff I should be doing anyway feels really tough and sort of silly. It's something I definitely need to work on.

It is definitely easier for me to be critical than to give myself credit. I tend to beat myself up for choices I deem bad, but don't congratulate myself for better choices. I am working on it. I do give myself credit for getting back on the horse again.

This is something that doesn't come natural to me, but I absolutely need it! I am going to give myself credit to protect myself from feeling helpless and hopeless when I don't follow my plan.
I give myself credit today for eating a healthy lunch, reading the book and posting here.

Today I am giving myself credit for not taking a piece of hard candy at the doctor's office today. I always have - but, I walked away and smiled. Smiling is one of my ways to give myself credit.

I've written down all my foods, too.
