I follow SP & Judith Beck's (Ph.D) book called "The Beck Diet Solution". She builds a mental strategy that works for me. She outlines responses we might make to her strategies and provides the healthy mental responses to counter our resistance. It's at the library and it's working for me. Cravings have vanished. I've talked myself through difficult eating challenges by using her techniques. I think it's great.
Today I went to my Spark Roots. I started by going to my original blogs and reviewing them. Then I went to my original goodies and reviewed who encouraged me at my beginnings. I'll send some goodies. I'll go to my past comments to me for some history. 252
My daughter who is 18 is probably in the obese category. I have asked her directly to take a look at SparkTeen but she refuses. What I realized is that the indirect approach seems to have more effect. I make sure to track when she is in the room. I measure my food and she notices because we are often in the kitchen together. Slowly I hope to show good habits, be available for questions and stoke that slow burning fire so that when she is ready she will have the tools and information available.
Teenagers seem to respond to this show me, don't tell me strategy
