Since getting back from "the big trip" 2 weeks ago I've had trouble getting traction to continue my weight loss journey.

First I was sick with a sinus infection, now the fitness center will be closed for the rest of the week. emoticon

But I've continued to Spark, resubscribe to your blogs, and actually re-signed up for Sparkcoach.

Reading blogs by Watermellen, Sandicane, and Gaby1948 on the Beck Diet Solution has also re-inspired me! I lost a big whack of excess weight in 2011 by using the principles in the Beck books, so I've dusted off my copies, gotten out my index cards, and started in again! After all, what works, works!!! This time I'll be using the green book, "The Complete Beck Diet for Life."

I don't know that I'll blog daily, I couldn't add anything meaningful to the blogs of those fine Sparkers listed above. I'll be in Phase 1 for awhile, where there are a number of challenging exercises to complete. I'll be sure to let you know how they are going!

But even though Thanksgiving is just two days away, I still feel like this is the perfect time to begin anew -- after all, celebrations and holidays are part of life, and they really need to be managed on this lifelong journey, right?

Have a productive and spark-filled day!!

    it's a tough time to start beck now with the holiday season, but i think that in some ways it's better to do it now, rather than in january, so we are already on track and perhaps will not stray as much as we otherwise would be tempted to do. good job!

    "blog daily, I couldn't add anything meaningful " Uh duh! You blog what is meaningful to you! Do what you need to do for you. If is is repetitive to others, it only reinforces the message. I for one can us that! :)
    WTG on getting back to Beck.

    My hat is off to you for starting now! Yes, there will always be celebrations to manage...might as well start the managment now before more damage is done.

    I understand about you perhaps not blogging daily. That's been hard for me. Just putting one foot in front of the other and following Beck's path is a good trek. Interesting to hear that I'm one of the ppl who inspired you, but honestly, Beck's info turned on a new light in my head. And I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of losing weight...

    You have a Spark-filled day tooooo!!

    Onward we go...together!

    Can't wait for any blogs you do do. My brain at this stage of life can use all the REPETITION it can get to "get" it!

    I do have the green Beck for life book and told Marsha (SLENDERELLA61) that I can't wait for her blogs too.

    Thank you for this blog. I have been struggling for a long time. Maybe this will get me back on track. I eat healthier and am more active but haphazard in my journey. I haven't read the Beck book but what I have read on the blogs from WATERMELLEN, GABY 1948 and SLENDERELLA are good tips and plans.

    I love that you're not waiting until after a holiday to get started again. No time like the present and yes, celebrations are a part of life.

    I look forward to hearing how it goes!

    I wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving!

    The gym is closed? Is it safe to walk outdoors in your area this time of year? Problem solved!
    Congrats on dusting off your Beck program and getting back to it.

    Terrific, so glad you're feeling reinspired. I don't have the green Beck book so will be eager to hear how you (and SLENDERELLA) find it!!
