BDS Journal: Celebrating 15 lb loss goal

Sunday, February 05, 2017

Today I celebrate another 5 lb weight loss. Since starting the Beck Diet Solution I have lost 15 pounds! I feel great! Here are the specific things I am doing now.

1. I weigh myself everyday

2. I read my list reasons to lose weight and the Response Cards

3. I eat everything while sitting down

4. I tolerate hunger. Hunger is not an emergency and I remind myself that I will be eating again soon.

5. I plan ahead for restaurant meals. I decide what I will eat and how much and then stick to the plan. This is not always easy and I mentally whine about this. However, at the next day's weigh-in, I am grateful for resisting the extra food. I have a few instances of giving in and feeling bad about it at the next day's weigh-in. I use the memories of those moments to help me stay on track.

    And great recap of the effective Beck skills.

    I am going to copy them and make them into a response card to read every day.

    You are efficient and effective , in your communication, and your application of the Beck program in specific and your life in general. You must be an engineer :) And plus you are kind and sweet.

    Congratulations! I too weigh myself daily, but that's too see fluctuations because of salt sensitivity. It did help me see how my body responds to food, stress, sleep or lack thereof. Keep it up! Good job!
