Beck Reboot: Day 25, Identify Sabotaging Thoughts
Monday, September 21, 2015      11 comments

Today is the day Beck says to us that we have to do the work to make this program our own, to make it work best for us. Reading about the sabotaging thoughts that she's heard over and over as a diet therapist and how to refute them is helpful. M... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 24, Deal with Discouragement
Sunday, September 20, 2015      11 comments

Beck's message is pretty simple today: 1. It is normal to feel overwhelmed or discouraged at times when dieting. (And I would add whether losing weight or maintaining the loss.) 2. Pay attention to the difficult hours. We may perceive ... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 23, The Unfairness Syndrome
Saturday, September 19, 2015      12 comments

Some people can eat more than I can and still maintain a healthy weight. It's true. But I've never felt like that was unfair. We are just all different, with different strengths, assets, and challenges. Overall I feel like I have been so blessed... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 22, Say, Oh, Well, to Disappointment
Friday, September 18, 2015      14 comments

It is Beck's day to weigh and graph our weight. Since I do that daily on WeightGrapher, it's no big deal. I weighed 126.2 this morning, better than yesterday, not as good as the day before. Had a gain this week that did not seem warranted by wha... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 21, Developing a Helpful Mindset about the Scale
Thursday, September 17, 2015      18 comments

Weighing can motivate you and help you stay committed to your healthy eating program, but if you weigh yourself while in the wrong mindset, it can be de-motivating, confusing, disappointing, and downright frustrating. I know. Been there, done th... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 20, Back on Track
Wednesday, September 16, 2015      5 comments

The worst fooling-myself-thought by far was that one that told me that I blew it so I might as well just give up and eat, at least for the rest of the day, or the rest of the week, or until after the holiday season. I had to get rid of this die... Read more
Gwen's Birthday and Natalie Recovering
Wednesday, September 16, 2015      11 comments

I wrapped presents last night and the oven is pre-heating right now for me to go make the cake. I bought the cake topper at Publix so Gwen could have the characters from Frozen that she wanted on her cake. Extended family dinner and party tonigh... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 19, Challenging Self-Deluding Thoughts
Tuesday, September 15, 2015      17 comments

According to Beck, dieters have an amazing ability to delude themselves about food, even when they are very rational people otherwise. I can identify with that remark. I used to use many, many of the justifications Beck lists like "I'll make up ... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 18, Change Your Definition of Full
Monday, September 14, 2015      13 comments

I agree with Beck that I, and probably most people who battle weight, are not naturally good at eating when hungry/stopping when full. But I have worked to gain some skill in this area, doing exactly what Beck recommends, checking in with myself... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 17, End Overeating
Sunday, September 13, 2015      13 comments

On this day Beck has us serve ourselves a larger portion than we are suppose to eat. The food is right there on our plate, but we are expected to eat the right amount. Can you do it? Can I do it?? She goes on to say if this experiment is easy fo... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 16, Prevent Unplanned Eating
Saturday, September 12, 2015      12 comments

You make a food plan and stick to it - no ifs, ands or buts. When you argue with yourself about what to eat it creates tension. When you decide to eat the tension releases. But, what I didn't know before Beck, when you decide NOT to eat, the ten... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 15, Monitor Your Eating
Friday, September 11, 2015      12 comments

After having my resistent streak yesterday, not wanting to plan my food, I'm back with it today. After grocery shopping it wasn't too hard to make the plan for the rest of today, which I followed, and for tomorrow. Thanks to those of you w... Read more
I Never Claimed to be Perfect
Thursday, September 10, 2015      13 comments

I read The Beck Diet Solution Day 14. I didn't write my entire food plan for tomorrow, but I will. I'm going to get into this meal planning thing and do it daily starting tomorrow. Right now there isn't much for me to eat in our house and hubby ... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 13, Overcome Cravings
Wednesday, September 09, 2015      15 comments

I haven't had any cravings today, so I didn't get to practice Beck's great techniques. Her main point is that in order to weaken and reduce the frequency of cravings, you stop giving into them. Once you resist them, they get weaker and weaker. I... Read more
Beck Reboot: Day 12, Tolerate Hunger
Tuesday, September 08, 2015      16 comments

As instructed, I ate breakfast and didn't eat again until supper, logging my hunger level each hour. I went 11 hours and 20 minutes, awake without eating. My first thought is, "I did it." And my second thought is it wasn't so bad. It is my 4th t... Read more
