Getting a little bit better. Most days I have been able to stick with the planned routine. I have lost 2 lb. I do have to drive quickly past the gas station when I get out of work at night very tired and my ability to fight the thoughts is a bit weaker.

Sabotage thoughts are really in rare form today. I keep having to fight and keep battling them. So far so good. I have found that the "Do it anyway" card has been really handy when trying to stop feeling overwhelmed by the thoughts.

This topic is just what I needed to read today.

I need to come up with a plan for after dinner eating and being more mindful of my thoughts is now at the top of my list. Thank you for the suggestions and the reminder.

Identify negative thought.
Write counter thought.

I found that journaling really helped me with my sabotaging thoughts. When I started the Beck Techniques in Nov 2012, I didn't think I would be able to "do it". I would write down in my journal, "I don't know if I can do this, I'm tired of being good all the time" And then I would counter this with "I just need to do the day to day tasks. They are simple, easy tasks. If I focus on the daily tasks, the weight will take care of itself. Besides, what is the alternative, I've tried Weight Watchers, I've tried Jenny Craig - I'm more tired of trying and failing at losing weight" I committed myself to do the first 14 days. Eventually, I read the rest of the daily tasks and later I started from the beginning and got through all 42 days. I have learned to incorporate the techniques. Some better than others. Occasionally, I listen to the CD version of the book while at work. I still read my ARC and I still journal.

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!)

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?
