Beck Trek - Chapter 3 - The Skinny on the Skinnies
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Reading this chapter again helped me to see that I do have some characteristics of thin person thinking, at least on most days of the week. On work days I am the Queen of thin person thinking...but it all kinda falls apart at the closing bell on Friday. Fat person thinking reigns until Monday morning when it's time to go back to work. And that's more than enough time to sabotage all the hard work I did during the week. Any holy cow if it's a LONG weekend or a vacation...I'm in real trouble.
So this challenge for me is about changing my day off brain to match my work day brain.
The best thing for me about this chapter is the last sentence on page 41:
"It doesn't require as much effort to maintain your weight as it does to lose it - if you learn the skills you need along the way"
I always felt that maintenance was harder than losing weight. I'm excited to learn skills that make maintenance easier.
