Thinking Thin Just Like a Thin Person

Thursday, December 07, 2017

It's been a few days since I started being aware of and tracking the food I eat. Joining the Beck Diet group was a good decision. I read 38 pages so far and have been keeping notes of the highlights....too many to remember lol. It was so revealing to find out that I definitely have many of the characteristics that make dieting difficult. Phew - I even hate the word dieting it reminds me of all the times I started over and failed. The Beck book told me I can change how I look at dieting and many of the aspects of it that I thought were difficult.

I really do want to think like a thin person. I found out that there are really two kinds of thin people, imagine that! The ones who don't have to watch what they eat and the others who do take it very seriously and watch their intake of food. I never realized that til now.

My food has been pretty good and I don't feel at all guilty for the tiny bits I went over the plan. I got busy and got a lot accomplished around the house waiting for that feeling of an empty stomach. Yesssss I actually felt hungry and heard the sounds of emptiness. I was really happy about that. It's been a long time since I heard that.

One thing I am trying to do is add fish to my food plan. I've been having more veggies and fruits and mostly turkey instead of any other meat. So far I've had sardines, and tuna. I was never a fish fan. I suppose I'll have to branch out to more varieties of fish in the future.

Much success with Dr. Beck's book!

    "... two kinds of thin people, imagine that! The ones who don't have to watch what they eat and the others who do take it very seriously and watch their intake of food."

    Very true! And the first group is very small, and even they usually have this privilege for a few decades, and have to pay attention when they get older or get less active.

    I'm glad you find the book helpful!
