Hi and welcome! The advantage cards Beck has you write up and then read daily are the key. First you identify your negative thoughts, then write a counter thought to each one. Reading the counter thoughts every day at least twice, starts the process of retraining your brain to think the new thought rather than the old one. it won't happen overnight, but it WILL happen if you keep up the practice.
It takes concentration. You have to be ready with the answers by predicting what your negative thoughts will be. (I have not been working at this lately. But Beck has all kinds of ideas for this!)
Sparkfully Yours, Judi

i used to have massive unconquerable sabotaging thoughts. But today I want to gave this thoughts up. I used to think that ill be fat forever and there's nothing I could do with it. But I will try to change my mindset from now on. I'l try it for 10 days. I will focus more on action. Sometimes I am too absorbed by my negative thinking and it cripples me big time. How to you counter act sabotaging thoughts?
