OK...I don't give up that easy. My BFF, Linda, and I have decided to give the Beck Diet a try. There is a book and a workbook that we bought (I bought the CD and the workbook).

I'm now on day 2.

Here's my plan (I'll try to attach it to this post)
Get Healthier
Stay Healthier
Look Good In Jeans

The 2 Diet Plans I Have Chosen (OK...3)
1. Abs Diet For Women
Back-up Plan: Low Sodium Diet
Back-up to Back-up Plan: Low Calorie Diet

Modifications For Each Plan Includes:
Allow myself either 1 12 oz Dr. Pepper or other 150 calorie junk food daily
Keep calories around 1600 give or take 250. (1350-1850)
One free meal per week
One free day per month (This day will include the 1 free meal that week)

To be evaluated as needed.

    Hey PETRIP!

    Welcome back too. We can do this!!

    Times does fly. I don't know how I got to be 56. I should still be 42. Oh well...gotta go with the flow.

    I like your idea about focusing on the emotional issues of why you eat or don't exercise. That's one of my focuses too. I'm just a spoiled brat. ha I also like your idea about creating your own plan by taking what you like from all the other programs to fit you better. That's a really good idea. It has to be something a person can make as part of their daily lifestyle. I look forward to sharing out journey with each other.

    You have a Harley??? Cool! I took a motorcycle beginners course about 6 years ago. Wrecked the bike and completely broke my left arm so swore off anything with 2 wheels. I can see the draw though. I never was good at even riding a bicycle.

    Got to go for now.

    Hi SpudLover,

    I'm back to sparkpeople too. I think the last time I was here I was in the 40's group! My how time flies. Not sure what diet I am going to follow, I am researching several. I'm thinking of taking the best of those and making up my own. I do know that what ever I use I will include focusing on the emotional reasons for over eating and not exercising. I was successful on Weight Watchers once but cannot afford to pay for a diet this time. Also, it wasn't a lifetime fix for me and I want a lifestyle change this time. Don't want to go through this again! I have 39 pounds to lose. My goal is 128 lbs. Reasons are that I want to look HOT on my Harley this year and I want to be strong and healthy with increased confidence, and energy! So, once and for all here we go!
