A 350 calorie indulgence in unplanned eating is a slip, a mistake, a falling off the wagon. But in Day 20 Beck is preparing us. It happens and if our thinking is right it does not need to derail us on our way to accomplish our weight and fitness... Read more

Today is for excuse-busting! Beck says, "stop fooling yourself." She states that unsuccessful dieters have perfected the skill of rationalizing overeating. These people can be totally rational in all other areas of their lives except food. Such ... Read more

Stop Overeating! Today Beck has us take extra food on our plate and practice not eating it. She says throw it away, but giving it to the animals is okay, too, in my book. Just learning that just because it is on my plate doesn't mean it is all m... Read more

RUNNING TODAY You may have read in my status that our 12.5 mile run-walk went well, even though the group (we won't blame our leader) miscalculated and we had to walk 1.5 miles more to get back to our cars! Didn't hurt us a bit, in fact I e... Read more
