BECK - DAY 1

Monday, February 08, 2016

"The Beck Diet Solution" is a journey in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, which could actually be used to change any type of behavior.

I began this book a few days ago but haven't blogged about it and I promised to do that. So here we go!

On Day 1 I'm supposed to list my reasons for losing weight and write them on cards, called my Advantage Response Cards.

My reasons for losing weight fell into four categories and I made an Advantage Response Card for each one:

Health
Fitness
Appearance
Self Image

While thinking and writing these I had a revelation! There is one that matters a lot to me, even though it's a bit silly. No more Fat Knees! lol

The only time I don't have fat knees is when I am really, truly slim. I'm 67 and that hasn't happened since I was about 57. So there's a goal for me, hmmm? No More
Fat Knees!

The things you learn about yourself when you begin to write. Sometimes I don't know what I think until it comes out my pencil.

    Looks like you've made a great start! As long as the advantage really speaks to you, and provides you with the motivation to stay the course, then it is a GREAT one to list on your ARC.

    You are on the road and Beck trekking. Enjoy the adventure!

    My auditory and kinesthetic senses are far stronger than my visual sense, when it comes to learning. So, I relate to not knowing what to think until it comes out the pencil.
