I responded to Bluebirdie and posted my message saying God sent her to send me hope and I was hoping the book she recommended would give me the encouragement I need. Then when I first saw my post directly below it was a post from ANMHIGGS in which she has a bible verse that reminded me where my strenght lies. Now I am praising God and sending thanks to ANMHIGGS! Thank you Ladies!

God is good to me and He used you to send me hope. I am going to get the book you mention and I am sooooooooo hopeful it will help me think of food differently! I am such an emotional eater and it has taken me 49years to figure that out, well, 37 years. I didn't start dieting until I was the ripe age of 12. I am a classic yo-yo doe doe, down 20, up 45, down 65, up 80, down 110, up 140, can you believe I actually lost 110 and kept it off for an entire year to get my money back from Jenny Craig. Once I got that check I was back on the food wagon. I am trying to change my thought process to healthy lifestyle forever and not just dieting now. I am sad to say the last 3 weeks I have felt so deprived and pitifully sorry for myself because I can't eat what I want. I want to eat everything in sight, I want to eat to illness, just gorge!!!!!! I hope this book will get me back on track. Thanks for taking the time to share!
Poundfully & Pitifully,
Penny aka 1

Hi..and good for you!!..I am going to the library tomorrow to get the book!!
I will be 65 on the 4th of next month...and I really wanted to look good for that day.. So much for that! This is my fourth yo yo trip in my lifetime, and I KNOW the answer is in my head. And I fight with it every day! This time a lot of my hugeness is because I stopped smoking and just didn't know what to do the the HABIT !! The nicotine part was over fast! (I quit because I was having bronchial asthma-type coughing and would not be able to take in a breath. The last time it happened I passed out (thank god my daughter was there) and according to her stopped breathing!! I woke up with her holding me up and pounding on my back. I have not touched a cigarette since. That was 5 yrs ago the 21st of this month.. And IN THAT 5 years I have put on 30 pounds and I was already 30 pounds overweight. Whew.. I've dumped all that!! NOW I need to get the book! Thank you for telling about the book, and for reading my "stuff" emoticon Annie

The true measure of a person is how he/she treats someone who can do them absolutely no good.

Hi,

I'm pretty new to this site. I have lost about 27 pounds with the help of a book I found .. the Beck Diet Solution, train your brain to THINK like a thin person..... The book works in tandem with any nutrional diet plan. It shows you how to make the kinds of positive, long term thinking and behavioral changes necessary to lose weight and to maintain your weight loss, not just for the short run, but for the rest of your life.....

It has really really helped me.... It has been years of yo yo dieting for me, never getting lower then the 160's until I found this book.... I was 175, lost about 8 pounds and could not get any lower.. THEN I found this book, and I am now running right at 145 to 147... I found this site when I googled calories for a certain food I was trying to track....... I am still on my journey to 137, and am thrilled to be in the 140's NOW......

Good Luck with your journeys, Just wanted to share what WORKED for me....
