Just started Day 4 today. I was pretty proud of myself yesterday. I had planned for ice cream, had it entered in my food log, ended up passing on it. I had a great dinner, didn't overeat, was comfortably full, so I just stopped eating and was able to say no thank you for that planned ice cream. Now that was a first for me. And boy did I ever give myself credit for this one! I really struggle with the all or nothing mentality. I am loving this pink book! I have gone from total ambivalence to rolling my head into the game of getting my health squared away. I'm trying to follow every day's checklist to the best of my ability. Being a procrastinating perfectionist sure has set me up for my self critical mind set. I'm going to really work hard on this one! And I am giving myself and my Fellow sparklers credit for posting on this thread! Well done!

I'm an optimist ... most of the time. When I am trying my best to lose weight ... well I can be a she-devil ... to ME. So Day 4 of Beck Solution ... give yourself credit for the things done "right" that will get you to your goals. Hmmm!!!

Yesterday was a tough day which has spilled into today. So I have been vigilant over my behaviors. I can be black or white, all or nothing ... when it comes to "being" on track. So this lesson is gonna be hard won.

Let's give CREDIT to everyone here for posting!

Today I give big CREDIT to myself for over 5 years of planning, prepping, eating a packed lunch for work! Maybe not every single day was a great day but heck I have been very consistent! No matter the ups and downs on the scale, the binges (which are less and less), the choice to eat unplanned food on occasion, CREDIT! CREDIT! CREDIT! for consistently packing my work lunch! Retiring in May! New lunch plan will be needed!

A decision made about how much to weigh is a decision made on how to live. (KANOE) I have decided.

IMHO, taking credit or celebrating everything you do on the journey is THE MOST important step.

Many of us have been way too good at using willpower alone and mercilessly beating ourselves up after even a minor slip up. We know it doesn't work yet we repeat these actions like robots.

Following Beck this time, I found that taking credit offsets for all those small energy draining steps in planning, shopping, eating the plan, tracking, confronting sabotaging thoughts, enduring hunger and food desires. Credit provides the energy for the journey just a food provides energy for our body.

Remember how good you felt the first two weeks. Find ways to give yourself credit to keep that feeling going.

Today I gave myself credit for reading my reasons to lose weight, eating everything while sitting down, taking the stairs, going for a walk at lunch time, and going to bed feeling hungry.

I haven't been doing the steps because I haven't been sleeping well, so I was lacking in motivation. But I'm ready to try again.

A friend who's also going through these Beck Steps noticed that I skipped this one. I skipped this one because I don't always feel right patting myself on the back for trying to lose weight. God wants us to be humble. I do think that God wants us to care for our bodies, but I think it's wrong to make it an obsession.

Our inward beauty is more important than our outward beauty.

Having said that, I'm going to pat myself on the back for trying to getting back on track -- Even though I haven't been checking into SparkPeople lately, I have been a little more careful about my eating habits, I have been weighing myself everyday, and have been getting 4 to 6 hours of planned exercise in per week for the last month. I have managed to lose a few pounds since we started, pounds that seem to be staying off, so I'm pleased.

I'm also more aware of how much mindless eating I do while standing up than I was before, so that is an improvement as well. I have to catch myself BEFORE I mindlessly put something in my mouth, not after. This is a hard thing to do when you are preparing food for others.

While reading my ARC this morning my #5 hit the bullseye...I will feel as if I have accomplished something important. When I lose and maintain the weight it's because I did it. I get the credit. It is no one else's responsibility what I choose to eat or how much I weigh. When I achieve, I get the credit.

A decision made about how much to weigh is a decision made on how to live. (KANOE) I have decided.

I used to wait until the end of the day and look back and give myself credit on a credit app on my phone. That was ok, but, I find it works better for me to give myself positive self talk as credit as soon as I recognize the behavior. That works better for me!

June, thinking of your feelings about your child sounds to be a good way to have similar loving feelings towards yourself.

Lynn, I loved your simile of someone complimenting you and then taking it back - so clear, and still we do that to ourselves.

This is harder than I imagined. I give myself credit but then think, I still could have done better. Lord, if someone else gave me a compliment then took it back, I would be mad. Got to work on treating myself as I would a friend.

It is hard to find the right balance in giving oneself credit, because it is hard to self-assess. We are too close. When is it credit due and when is it self-glorification?
We are usually harder on ourselves and our mistakes than we are on someone else. Giving ourselves credit requires being mindful of our actions. That's a good thing. Treating ourselves kindly is also a good thing.
When I think I am being too hard on myself, or am feeling down or negative, to get myself back to positive, I think of my children, and how I would want others to treat my children, I would want them to be kind and positive and encouraging and give them credit for the efforts and choices they make. And then I think, that is how I should treat myself.

Is it conditioning? Do we feel boastful for acknowledging what we have accomplished?

For me, my response to both of those questions would be, "yes." I find it incredibly difficult to give myself credit. If I think of it as simply acknowledging what went well during the day, that works for me. And, like Sue said, "I need to remember that when I give myself credit asap for doing something right I can more easily see my slip ups as momentary mistakes instead of earthshattering events." Kriszta's reference to slipping into hopelessness speaks to me.

Decades ago I was in a very negative mental space. It seemed that all experience slipped into feelings of hopelessness for me. Consistent acknowledgement of things, no matter how small they seemed and as ridiculous as it felt, turned the tide on the feelings of hopelessness. That negative self talk that was ever present then, is rarely heard now. These techniques work!

I'm in the same boat, Kriszta - this is the chapter I tend to space out, lol. But I do try to be a friend to myself most days. I feel silly gushing about minor accomplishments, but a simple, "Hey, I did this; nice!" definitely has a cheering effect on me. It's good to have a reminder of that.

It is good I re-read this chapter, I almost forgot about giving myself credit for things well done.
I wrote a new Response Card for this:

Sabotaging thought:
These are small things, not worthy of credit.
Helpful response:
Giving myself credit for things I did well reinforces skillful behaviors,
and protects me against negative spirals leading to hopelessness and giving up.

I think giving ourselves credit is hard for many of us. When I read Day 4 I saw myself in a couple of the scenarios that Beck gave - 1. At the restaurant I try and try to resist until I finally give in because the social setting is too stressful, I have had to wait too long for my meal to arrive, I am feeling sorry for myself. 2. I also see myself as the person who doesn't deserve credit b/c I shouldn't need credit for doing the things I am suppose to be doing or I should wait to get credit until I have reached the end.

I need to remember that when I give myself credit asap for doing something right I can more easily see my slip ups as momentary mistakes instead of earthshattering events.

I love the idea of giving myself credit for constructive behaviours.
Right now it is difficult to get the feeling of owning them, but i am confident that in time, it will become easier. And it will certainly contribute to a better self-image and self -esteem.
I am glad to have restarted "Beck". How easily I tend to forget certain concepts.I do need the reminder.

Thankfully I love giving myself gold stars and pats on the back when I'm doing well. I make sure I voice my accomplishments to my partner who can also give me thumbs up for good dieting and health decisions.
Over the past few weeks I've made such healthy choices. I eat fresh fruits and veg every day, and have almost cut out meat. My number one contributor to my success so far is keeping track of my calories each day. I'm gonna keep making good decisions...and treat myself once I hit major milestones. Ex: after a long week at work but still
Asking good choices I treated myself to a massage this weekend! Glorious!

Just blogged about today's success, and giving myself credit. Welcome any feedback you may have, as this (i.e. giving myself credit) is still something I struggle with. I don't seem to recognize the good things I do unless they are really out of the ordinary (again, see the blog).

I just found these threads of team members thoughts going through each day. AWESOME!

I am taking a couple of days to absorb day 4 as well as take in the other days a little more.
A couple of things I have given myself credit for in the past two days:
*walked in place while doing ironing - about 20 minutes of walking in place rather than just standing.
*did not eat all of the pasta served in delicious Napoli's dish. I was able to talk with DH and leave the remainder of pasta sitting without desiring to finish it.

Up to Day 4 and WOW, is this ever HARD! I read the first couple of pages on this thread, and I see I'm not alone in having trouble giving myself credit. Things I would applaud in other people, I ignore when I do. So here goes:

Today, I'm giving myself credit for
* my tenacity
* reading my ARCs before eating (and adding to them - I'm up to 23, and foresee that I could easily go to 100!)
* eating well, and following my nutritional requirements

In reading through the thread, I've found a couple of things that will support me in giving myself credit, namely:
* a "golf counter" type bracelet or keychain
* a "Credit Journal" . I think it will also be helpful for me to review this when my heath issues rear their ugly heads, to show that there are things I can do!

Give Myself Credit

Today I'm giving myself credit for getting back on track, making SparkTime, the willingness to plan and track what I'm eating, reviewing Beck.

Thank you for the reminder of the response cards .. They are tucked away thus I will need to get them back out. I have them on a spiral rolledex which I sit on the bathrm. counter and used to be faithful to choose a topic then focus on it for a few weeks. emoticon

Giving myself credit was part of my plan. It's a habit that I need to re-establish. I do so many good things for myself. It's time to give myself credit again.

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'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!

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.

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.

That is fantastic. That's one of my weaknesses. I made cookies today with dough we had in the freezer and I didn't eat the cookies as they came out of the oven.

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.

I gave myself credit of being here and deciding to really make a change in my life. I gave myself credit at lunch and breakfast for making good choices. I also gave myself credit for sitting down to eat everything! YAY!

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...

My ticker represents 12 years of learning and losing and regaining and regrouping - I'm NOT going back! I *AM* and *WILL BE* fit 4 life!!

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.
