Yes, it makes perfect sense,
"I aim to a healthy lifestyle, rich of things (goals, behaviors, classes, etc) that fulfill me, losing weight should feel like a pleasant side-effect and not the main reason behind doing all that I'm doing" - it is a brilliant summary of what this chapter is all about!

I did a bit of thinking over this topic and came out with several goals:

- Improve my hula hoop skills;
- Learn how to sew and sew my own clothes;
- Learn how to play Ukulele;
- Finish home improvements;
- Do other 10k races;
- Join a self-defense class.

Dr Beck is totally right: I don't need to have already lost all the weight in order to pursue these goals, but I noticed that, up until now, I used to put them on the background, because losing weight was my main focus.

This behavior must change: I guess that it makes sense that doing things that I really like will give me some weight loss as a result (some goals require me being active, as for the others, at least I won't be raiding my kitchen cabinets just because I'm bored!).

And I also think that a bit of de-focusing from this losing weight project is needed. I don't refer to tracking food, exercising or eating healthy, but to the idea of doing these things JUST to lose weight. I aim to a healthy lifestyle, rich of things (goals, behaviors, classes, etc) that fulfill me, losing weight should feel like a pleasant side-effect and not the main reason behind doing all that I'm doing... Does it make any sense?

Reading the comments from other Beck Team members about how they enrich their lives has been very interesting.

My volunteer work through my church enriches my life immeasurably. I chair the outreach committee, helped start the GSA (Gay/Straight Alliance) and am working with other groups in town to extend the season for the soup lunches offered at the foodbank by starting community BBQs from May to September, when the soup lunches will resume.

Time with my family, especially my DH and our almost-4-year-old granddaughter, enriches my life too. We just returned from a 7-day trip to California where we spent 5 days at Disneyland. On the last evening before we flew home, our granddaughter said she wished she could stay there for 100 years. In September my DH and I are planning a 3-week driving trip through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, where we will visit my son and his wife.

I joined the hiking and photography groups of the local PROBUS club, and am looking forward to meeting new friends through these groups after our granddaughter starts school in September.

I'm smiling from head to toe after reading my previous post. Vision boards are amazing. I am at the beginning of a long overdue, major kitchen remodel and actually enjoying the challenge. It is a bit stressful but ever since starting the remodel I am having no trouble maintaining my desired weight.

My goal of outdoor bike riding has fallen away mostly because of unusual but much needed months of rain. A friend has lent me an indoor bicycle allowing me to ride and build up my knees while still working and helping my DIY DH.

Kriszta, that is awesome that you have enriched your life by practicing a healthy lifestyle that gives you both more energy and time !! I hope you enjoy the via ferrata adventure, I like them a lot. Also interesting that you are trying to be greener and use less airplane travel for vacations. As your kids are older, they don't need you as much, and you can spend some purely to yourself - retreats and interests. I used to feel guilty leaving DH at home while following some of my interests that weren't his interests. I still do a bit, so try not to go away too much by myself. But it is a fact that he is a homebody, he likes staying at home, I like seeing outside things. He doesn't mind that I go. This year he suggested we go on a road trip. I am very happy about that, this will be a first for us.

I feel grateful for a very rich life

I feel grateful for good health, independent kids, wonderful DH, part-time work that helps contribute to our family business, time to do things I enjoy, I have many wonderful resources and opportunities.

This year

1 Learn to wind surf - and windsurf in the local waterways and lakes this summer
2 Learn to ride a unicycle
3 Travel with my brother and sister and show our niece where her Italian and Swiss ancestors are from - we plan to go to England, Spain, Switzerland and Italy
4 Spend more time in the garden
5 Possibly climb Mt Baker - I haven't heard back from my guide so am not sure if this will happen
6 Enjoy improving my physical fitness - doing more strength training than I usually do
7 Visit my kids and nephews and nieces - Vancouver, Seattle, Montreal, Nova Scotia
8 Take a road trip with DH this summer
9 Continue volunteering at the youth homeless shelter in my home town
10 Do a second tandem parachute jump (my first was in 2018) as part of a youth homeless shelter fundraiser.
11 Go kayak - camping this summer
12 Go on a 6-day Tai Chi retreat

A bit of a dearth of cultural things, lots of active living and family time.

I will add, make it a goal to visit a dozen museums in my area, Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
Go to some youth dance, music and talent show performances in my town.
Go to at least one play put on by our local theatre.
Visit our local artists gallery shows at least once a month.

Enriching life is what it is all about when you get into retirement. I have found that with Beck I have been doing things like organizing my shelves, getting rid of clutter, and spending more time enjoying some new exercises. I also joined the Phit-N-Phat Tribe which is a website and program devoted to helping women lose their weight, maintain weight loss and developing their full potential. This has really helped me delve a lot deeping into the cognitive behavior therapy. I finally feel like I will never backtrack again on my weight loss.

To me, enriching your life is meeting with friends, following pursuits you might have been afraid to before and living a great life. I don't want to be a retired person who is unhealthy and not able to do much. I want an active life.

Hi Everyone,

today is Day 40: Enrich Your Life

Enrich your life - if we did our Beck homework and created time and energy for dieting and exercise, prioritized and down sized everyday's task, resolved problems, reduced stress...
we may tap into vast amounts of time and energy to enrich our lives!

What are you thinking? Please share here!

We deserve it!
emoticon

Before June 2011, I had no energy and felt tired most days, from getting home to bedtime I ate a lot as a response to stress, and didn't have energy to do anything else, just watch TV and read. I couldn't imagine doing more.
Now, I have the same job, do similar amount of household chores, get more sleep... and still have time and energy for running, walking, hiking, yoga, gardening, visiting friends and my parents, going to silent retreats, and reading a lot.
This was my list in November last year:
- go to a 10-day meditation retreat - I applied and got successfully registered, I go mid May and plan to do it every year from now
- hike on via ferrata - not done yet, but we go back to Slovenia in July and I will get the chance
-visit as many National Parks in the neighboring countries (available by car) as possible, to hike and bike in nature - I changed my thinking and decided to not to travel by plane (except mandatory business trips) and plan vacations in this category. More fun, less stress, less money and more environment-friendly!

The greatest change in my thinking is that now I know it is OK to spend some vacation days away from my family, either or 1-2 day silent self retreats or longer organized retreats.
That will not make me a less loving wife and mother. In fact I will be more kind, patient and loving, and less distracted.

This chapter is so important. Don't put your life on hold just because your unhappy with your weight. Your life goals are available at any size. I think its fine to have goals to reduce your weight or eat healthier. But I think its important to embrace yourself as your are and try to be happy in the moment- even if you still have some self improvement goals. I recommend following some of the body positive people on instagram, twitter or on a podcast. They are very inspiring and remind us to embrace life at any size!

SLENDERELLA I hear you loud and clear ! I understand and relate to the wistfulness.
For me though, I know that I just have not been able to do it (have weight loss success)
any earlier than right now, at 58. I am grateful that it was 58 and not "never".

I will continue to enrich my life by learning more about yoga, getting into a weight training program, working on my abs...right now they are still mush, lol.... and I will keep running 3 times per week. I will continue to try to get faster and faster.

Since I love cooking and baking I will enrich my life by researching recipes that are healthy,
that I can enjoy making. I also find my life greatly enriched by the house management that I am doing... decluttering, getting paperwork in better order.... I am "young" and healthy but more and more I keep thinking of my daughter, my only child, who will have to deal with all of the stuff in our house when hubby and I are gone. I want to make it as painless as possible.
And it's been such a blessing because I am donating such wonderful things that I know that others will enjoy...and also, that I will not miss.

It is hard for me to read this chapter without getting wistful. What could I have done if I had learned to manage my weight as a kid or at least teenager rather than 10 years ago at age 59? Now at 69 I blame many of my poor choices in life on the fact I was obese or on the fact I had low self esteem due to obesity. Some people treated me awful -- and probably I treated me the worst of anyone.

That's not to take away my accomplishments and my many good choices. I had many educational accomplishments and a career that included many promotions and successes. My one and only child, a daughter, is a joy in my life most of the time. I try to not be overbearing which would be easy.

When it comes to weight management, I keep thinking "better late than never". There are things I've done to try to make up for what I missed, like our "Senior Prom" at our senior dance. It helps but doesn't erase the earlier hurts. The relationships I now have are important to me, but many of them are colored by my years of obesity and my current struggles with food. I want to be a good role model for my daughter and granddaughters although I feel sad when I see them struggling, and even sadder when the appear to give up or not care about eating right.

But I know this chapter is about looking forward, not back. Making the most of this day. I will admit I enjoy my days. I'm smiling far more than crying.

But there are realities. My husband's health and eyesight are not good. His driving especially at night scares me, but it isn't going to be easy to get him to surrender the keys. I have "atypical tremor" and osteopenia. I have a broken foot and doctor says I will continue to have breaks if I don't have surgery on each foot. It will probably be 6 months or more until I can run again. Our round dance lessons and square dancing is on hold and hubby isn't happy about that at all. My oldest grandchild is going to have scoliosis surgery in January. My mom is 91 years old and has dementia. I hate housework and my house needs so much. So, within these realities, how do I enrich my life?


Saturday I volunteered at the half marathon I was suppose to run. Volunteering is one thing I can do to stay involved with the running community. I will rejoin Lakeland Runners Club in order to do more race volunteering. That will help me maintain relationships with runners and my connection to the running community.

I am reading more. I love Hoopla, where I can download 10 books per month for free on my library card. I can also go to the library when I want a book to hold and read.

I play piano. Not well. But it is fun and as good a brain workout as sudoku (which I also do) and crosswords.

I probably need to look for some more activities especially if my running and dancing remain limited. I need to do more housework although it is hard to get excited about it especially when hubby is so very, very messy.


I realize this post is not as positive as it ought to be. I will keep trying to adjust to my realities and figure out ways to enrich my life.

I have been working on trying to enrich my life with more things I enjoy doing. I have signed up for a water color class, and I am taking a yoga class. I have also tried a new music class focused on learning to play by ear (I sight read music pretty well, but I would LOVE to be able to play by ear). And I signed up with a group to provide a meal at the homeless shelter once a month. I still need to work on my energy and motivation (not because of my weight, but because of retirement and health issues. It's pretty easy to get depressed and stay home when you have health issues). It helps me a LOT to go out and do the things that I CAN do, and to meet new people.

Kristin, I think I could copy and paste your list of things you want to do less of and the things you want to do more of…it all fits me just fine!

Maria, I’ve never done a vision board. I think I’ll work on that.

Kriszta, I’d like to go to some of the beautiful National Parks in USA.

I’m getting a puppy…and all the love that comes with it!

I’m reading “A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose” by Eckhart Tolle. It’s a little deep…I hope I understand it better when I get a little further in.

I’m going through my whole house and garage and gradually purging and organizing. I sign up for the “Apartment Therapy” January Cure each year….great motivator for me to get the house clean and in order…you get an email each day with an assignment and it is just for the month of January and I can’t believe how much I accomplish in that one month. It says “apartment”, but the people doing it have apartments, houses, farms…it doesn’t matter. Participants can post their comments, share ideas, give encouragement, etc. Participants are from all over the world. Just google “apartment therapy January Cure” if you are interested. The sign up is in December.

Enrich my life! There are things I want to do to enrich my life, and there are things I want to stop doing that make my life less rich.

Things I want to do less of:
watching repetitive TV shows and cable news
obsessing over politics
scrolling through facebook and social media.

Things I want to do more of:
drawing and painting
reading fiction and non-fiction
take a photography class and print my photos
see old friends
meditate

I don't want to add so many things to my activities that I create stress because I am overbooked, but I think I can make time for these things.

At some point, I would like to get back to volunteering in my community or in local politics, but with my work schedule, I don't think that's something I want to take on now.

This week I did enrich my life. I went to lunch with my new friend. It felt so great going out and being social. Haven't done that in a long time. As I'm losing weight I will go buy something new to wear. I'm planning on doing that in 5 lb increments. Can hardly believe we're on day 40! Thanks for doing this Kriszta! It's been very helpful.

Thank you Maribeth, Mary and Maria for posting,
I too love the story in the book about going to the beach, it is a wonderful way to look at life.

Before June 2011, I had no energy and felt tired most days, from getting home to bedtime I ate a lot as a response to stress, and didn't have energy to do anything else, just watch TV and read. I couldn't imagine doing more.

New things I want to do:
- go to a 10-day meditation retreat (I found one in Hungary, contacted organizer and now I know the date and when the registration opens)
- hike on via ferrata (I got a taste this summer in Slovenia - no arrangements yet)
-visit as many National Parks in the neighboring countries (available by car) as possible, to hike and bike in nature

Several years ago, somewhere on SP I followed through on the suggestion to make a vision board. I highly recommend this. It has helped me to focus on many things that have enriched and improved my quality of life. Thankfully, many have come to pass. One that I am currently working on is the picture of riding a bike. Despite cranky knees, I continue to ride longer distances. The goal is to take a 2 hour historical bike riding tour with DH in the near future.

Another more challenging goal is a home makeover. After reading this lesson, I realize that I have had good results with my Template for Escape Plans. I just made out a partial list of ST's, reminders and strategies. This much needed remodel is beginning to look a little more doable. emoticon emoticon

I really love Day 40, Enrich Your Life. The illustration of how to challenge an irrational thought is clear. Beck calls them sabotaging but I believe her father the founder of CBT calls them irrational beliefs which nails it for me. Anyway the illustration is great. I can just see the beach scene. And in turn I can see my own irrational or illogical beliefs in that way. I also appreciate the idea of enriching my life. I value experiences over things so my rewards for losing weight or for some other fitness accomplishment tend to be experiences. Visits to museums or to natural ares. FaceTime calls with distant friends. Good and meaningful work, such as political work, service to my community. And even a great read. Oh and my Spark pals and activities.

Day 40: Enrich Your Life!

I live in the "South" and it is football season emoticon !

Friday night high school games start this week! My son plays first trumpet in the band emoticon . He actually has a couple of solos during the field show. I am really looking forward to going to the games this year. I am so much more mobile and feel so more energetic then I did last year.

emoticon I love Autumn. It is my favorite season. I have some brush piles that need to be burnt so I am planning on a couple of bonfires. emoticon

My Dad has a RV motor home. Hopefully when he journeys this way, we can go down the the Gulf. I use to go to Florida every year and I have not been since before my son was born and he is now 17. Crazy because it is only like 5 hours away. emoticon .

I would also just like to get myself more organized. I actually have a box of books and magazines to take to the nursing home and a couple of bags of clothes already to be donated.

I love to paint but with the crazy turns in my life, I just have stopped taking the time to do it emoticon
emoticon I think the fact that I got a dog is confirmation that I am committed to staying active. Puppies are a lot of work and do require lots of exercise and attention.


Striving for strength and balance in mind, body and spirit!!

-Christi

Day 40:

Some ways I'm making my life better that don't have to do with food:

* I restarted a home business that I used to love so I can retire early, hopefully by 2020
* I just signed up for some classes for the fall: yoga, piano, and kayaking
* I have started reading a lot again; for a while, I kind of slacked off on it and spent lots of time playing games on my phone; this is a better use of my time

JMarie, It's always helpful to have something to help motivate you, isn't it? When I looked at the photos from our last trip (December), I did not like the way I looked in the photos at all. I hadn't realized I looked so fat (my brain has a different, more pleasant image of myself that is apparently not reality). It has really motivated me to lose weight before my next trip (July). I want to be comfortable and look normal. Our lab/golden retriever cross passed away at the end of January this year (12 yrs old). Best dog we ever had. We definitely miss her. We had decided not to get another dog because we are seniors and don't want the dog to outlive us, and also don't want to worry about who will look after the do, or putting it in a kennel, when we travel, etc. But....my husband has decided he really wants to get another dog this fall after our trip and cottage time is over. So we will probably get a puppy (yes, we are crazy), and our future travel plans will have to go on hold.

I am looking forward to doing some serious travel in the not too distant future. We have a very old German Shepherd that will be passing away soon and he has been the reason we have put off traveling. So one of my biggest motivation to losing weight and getting in shape is so that I will be able to enjoy traveling without feeling uncomfortable.

Also next summer I have a couple of reunions planned that I want to attend and I am looking forward to being more fit and looking better in my clothes when these events happen.

Even before I reached my goal weight, I had accomplished most of my health and wellness goals. My weight did not hinder my motivation. My long term goals outside of my health and wellness have not changed much over time.

Generally speaking, they include;

Continue to take online courses (MOOC) I'm a life-long learner
Volunteer - enriching my life by helping others
Hike the Appalachian Trail - this may be a series of section hikes and take a few years
Keep on Sparking
Live well, play hard and have fun!

I didn't answer this during my first Beck trek...maybe because I didn't know how to answer it because I don't really have a 'list' of stuff I'd like to accomplish. I have accomplished some things in the past year even if they weren't written down. It was a list in my head!

*Reach goal weight...check
*Grow out my natural gray hair color...check
*Grow my hair longer....check but still working on that one
*Lower body fat & increase muscle...check
*Get better at pushups....not sure I will ever really check this off, but I'm def better than I used to be!
*Walk/Run my first 5K....check

What's next for me? I haven't really thought much past learning how to maintain my weight and working on my pushups. Remodeling our upstairs has been a goal of mine and we are in the middle of that messy project.

For the purpose of participating in Day 40, here is my new 'list'...

*Be able to do 10 military pushups
*Increase time I can jog without knee pain
*Continue to maintain my weight
*Continue to reduce bodyfat and increase lean muscle
*Get the upstairs decorated with the remodel is finished...then stop to enjoy it!
*Take a nice long bath in the new spacious bathtub upstairs...complete with candles & spa music :)
*Go through my closet again and take out what is now too big!
*Stop looking at Goodwill for the black skirt you wish you'd kept and just buy another one or alter the one that's now too big. LOL

Highest recorded lifetime weight (non-pregnant): 03/12/2015 - 165.5 lbs

2017 Goal Weight: 137 lbs - Met that goal & entered maintenance for the LAST time on 11/10/2017

2018 Goal Weight: 132 lbs (+/- 3%)
2019 Goal Weight: 132 lbs (+/- 3%)

WOW ... last time's posting motivated me today to recapture what I let slip through my fingers.

This has been an enlightening year for me. After "the" doc recommended a gluten, dairy, soy and sugar free protocol ... I experienced true health for the first time in eons. Now that I have attained that ... I do NOT want to lose it.

With true health, life itself becomes soooo enriched that the true living begins and becomes enjoyable. I have LIVED more in the last year than I have in eons.

Clean eating, moving your body daily, quality sleep AND including alllll the passionate things in your life that feed your soul ... is the formula.

When we fill our souls ... we don't need soooo much food.

Lots of things I want to do to enrich my life, but here are the ones that I've been holding back on until I lose more weight:
Buying new clothes
Buying a new bathing suit
Swimming lanes in the community pool
Doing the CN Tower Edge Walk in Toronto
Looks like I'll be going shopping tonight after work!
I can get started on all of the above. CN Tower will have to wait a bit for warmer weather, but I will plan to do it for my birthday in May.

Lot's of things I am looking forward to in the next few months-
1) Going hiking in Colorado in a couple of weeks.
2) Spending time outside in my yard (now that it's finally spring???)
3) Experimenting with some new native plants
4) Attending the yoga classes (that I already paid for!!)
5) Going to Cape Cod with my family
6) Adding some new books to my "to read" list and reading them!!

It's good to put these all in one place, and remind myself that

This turtle is to remind myself that slow but steady wins the race.

I'm still thinking on my list of things, but here is my start:

- I want to buy a new bathing suit (I've been wearing a very old one since I re-gained my lost weight - I guess I feel like I don't deserve something new if I'm still heavy)

- I want to get my passport (I've been avoiding getting the photo taken)

- I want to have a cute wardrobe instead of cycling through the same few items


I'm bookmarking bathing suit websites/asking fiance to go with me to get my passport photo/keep an eye on sales online for new clothes

On this my 3rd Beck Trek, I love this day. I have many things to be thankful for, my life is rich, I have more things on my to-enjoy list than I have time, but I do have a list and within the time I have I have many things I enjoy. It can be a brag list, except I will convert that to giving myself credit for actively scheduling these things in my life and staying open to new things.

I have only one thing that I don't do because of the weight I currently am. I am thankful to be close to my goal weight, so my weight doesn't inhibit my activities. The one thing I don't do I am saving for a non-food reward for when I reach goal weight - rock climbing.

My life is rich, I am very happy and enjoy the following
- my nuclear family, they are healthy, wise, industrious, self-sufficient, active, non-whiners, problem solvers, working at careers they enjoy - due to their overall thriving status, I don't have to give up time and effort to help them, so I have more discretionary time to decide to do what I want
- my work is satisfying and part-time - this also frees me to do more of what I enjoy
- I have a great group of friends - we hike, bike, meet socially for games nights, invite each other to community social events, volunteer together
- I enjoy my yearly vacation with DH - we go to Italy and environs for 10 days every year to visit our extended family and take a few days just to ourselves
- competing with DH in 5k races and as part of a relay triathlon
- do a few 10k races on my own
- spark - support and am supported by great spark friends, learn, track, journal, blog
- enjoy the occasional music concert, play, professional sports event
- read
- spend time with DD's dog - this dog is so devoted to me, she boosts my ego the way she follows me around and enjoys going walking and hiking with me
- take a French language refresher course once a year, always at the beginning of the New Year, taught by my good friend who is a Quebec native and is also in my hiking group.
- enjoy going to the sports events of my extended family - right now mostly my niece's soccer games, other niece's and nephews basketball, volleyball, track, swimming, etc

I found my wish list from my original Oct 2016 Beck Trek - I will comment

1 Rock climb -- not at goal weight yet
2 Spend more quality and quantity time with my family - doing
3 Take a holiday with DH - doing
4 Spend more time working on the farm - doing ( I now have a milking rotation, I used to be backup)
5 Improve my garden - sigh
6 Improve my sleep habits - improved from 2016 and a main goal for 2018
7 Hike up Mt Cheam - no, but DD has already gone twice in the mean time
8 Visit the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam - no
9 Mountain bike the logging roads on the mountains close to my place - doing
10 Skate board the streets of Vancouver - not yet
11 Visit New Zealand - yes and a highlight of 2017
12 Snorkel in New Zealand - yes
13 Swim in my wet suit with the spawning salmon up the creek - yes
14 Explore the trails of Mt Sumas - no
15 Spend 2 weeks at a ski resort and ski from morning to night every day - no
16 Hike and camp the length of the Hudson Bay Trail - no
17 Travel with my nieces- yes, we went to the NAIG games in Ontario
18 Take a French conversation class - yes
19 Learn Punjabi, the alphabet and the simple vocabulary - I took one class, I need to take more
20 Learn the Arabic alphabet - no
21 Read the Bible from beginning to end - no
22 Memorize Proverbs - there is a chapter for every day of the month - no
23 Read all the Shakespeare plays - no
24 Attend music and performance art concerts, especially ones featuring young performers - yes
25 Organize my office better and keep it organized - haha, I think it is worse right now


Wow, that is satisfying to see I made headway on my to-enjoy list.

I will add some more and review this again the next time I do a Beck Trek, planned for Oct 2018
I will keep all of the above I haven't done yet plus

1 Learn to do a fluent flip-turn in the swimming pool
2 Go on a holiday with DH which DS and his GF invited us - an Alaskan cruise
3 Learn to juggle a soccer ball with my feet
4 Cultivate more friends-in-common with DH -- we have a lot of friends but not too many friends in common I have my hiker friends, my school friends - He has his farmer friends and Clash of Clan friends
5 Meet up with some of DH's Clash of Clan friends on our next holiday. We met two of them last year, this year a bigger group wants to meet. DH belongs to an Italian CoC team, so we will meet them when we go to Italy in March

Where you end up is more important than how fast or where you start out.
- Improved fitness and nutrition, energy and confidence are my rewards.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
A PH (personal high) is the main goal, a PB is the sometime icing on the cake.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.
Sopra le nebbie delle valle e le vicende della vita sorge una promessa di luce e serenita.

Spent time on making a list and deciding what I would work on and the steps towards accomplishing this new activity. I've always wanted to try tai chi and so decided I would work towards learning that. Discovered that there is a free tai chi practice on Saturday mornings on the outdoor basketball court of a school a few miles from me.

From Beck’s list:
-Read ARC twice
-Ate sitting and mindfully some of the time, and gave myself credit.
-Monitored fullness after each meal and if I could take a walk.
-Walked 40 minutes today and gave myself credit.
-Stayed on plan, gave myself credit.
-Have planned my meals and snacks for tomorrow in Spark Nutritional Tracker and gave
myself credit.
-Read my “It’s Not Okay,” “Get Back on Track” and “Believe IT” response cards and gave myself credit
-I took steps to enrich my life.

Spring 2016 I made this quick and dirty list of things I'd like to do to continue to enrich my life. I've completed a couple, and added a few. This is a work in progress.
ADDED - take pottery class
ADDED - learn Icelandic (started on Memrise app, and visited the country in June 2018)
done - Read chronologically though the Bible (completed Aug 20, 2017)
kind of done - Learn Spanish (went through entire Duolingo app)
partly done - Visit the monthly exhibit at the local museum (I visit sometimes, but not every month)
year 1 done - Bike to work at least 10 times each summer (2016 done, biked 12 times; 2017 chose kayaking and a vacation over meeting this summer goal. Will see what 2018 looks like.

not done yet -
Paddle across Lake Winnebago in my kayak (elbow/shoulder injury prevented)
Walk across Lake Winnebago in the winter (event cancelled, ice too thin)
Finish my kids' scrapbooks (which I abandoned in 2008) - too hard to start this year.
Organize my big box of mementos
Take a cooking class (Daughter-in-law is interested in doing this together)
Learn to use power tools
Decorate the master bedroom (DH and I are at an impasse)
Make a denim rug or quilt out of the old blue jeans in the basement (still trying to find the right project)
Become a better gardener (goal too nebulous, need to define this more clearly)
Join a birding group (might be more motivated now that my best birding friend moved back to the state)
Run a half marathon (rethinking this. Running is really hard on my back since I stepped in a hole last year)
Operate a bulldozer or similar really big machine (but I now know where there is a facility where I can do this)

Day 40 - Enrich Your Life

I totally agree with Dr. Beck on this one. The time to enjoy your life is now... not tomorrow and certainly not waiting until your reach your goal weight. My DH is 72 and I'm turning 62 later this month; so putting things off until "someday" just isn't realistic. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed daily as there is no guarantee that there will be a tomorrow. I learned this lesson years ago and regret that I didn't take it to heart even earlier in life. My DH and I have always loved to travel and we have been to many places both inside and outside of the US. Our current plan is to take at least one International trip every year, at least one long (one month or more) RV trip to new places in the US and several mini camp trips as we can fit them in. We live in Oregon and I'm fortunate to have family close by and spending time with family and creating memories is important. I have a long bucket list of things to do and places to go; and periodically I review the list and add new items or delete ones that no longer are relevant.

Enrich your life - if we did our Beck homework and created time and energy for dieting and exercise, prioritized and down sized to do list, resolved problems, reduced stress...
we may tap into wast amounts of time and energy to enrich our lives!

It happened to me soon after I joined SP, and even more so after my first Beck reading.
Before June 2011, I had no energy and felt tired most days, from getting home to bedtime I ate a lot as a response to stress, and didn't have energy to do anything else, just watch TV and read. I couldn't imagine doing more.
Now, I have the same job, do similar amount of household chores, get more sleep... and still have time and energy for running, walking, hiking, yoga, dancing, gardening, visiting friends and my parents, going to 1-2 day silent retreats, and reading a lot.
These activities enrich my life.
If I had more free time, probably I would do these same things, just more of them.
(copied from my April post - as there has been no change since then!)

I can't believe I only have a few more chapters in this book. There was so much information in it that I feel that I might have to go over some of them to remind myself of what I have learned and keep reminding myself. (response cards really help)

About this chapter, I don't think weight has ever Stopped me from living out a dream, but I do believe that fat has hindered many small things in my life.

hindrances
being lazy about many things
not wearing clothes that I like
sitting in a chair and feeling the sides of it
Not feeling pain in my foot anymore.
playing my instrument, feeling out of shape
Slouching and neck pain
better relationship with husband
quick tempered with kids

cures
spontaneous exercise
wearing something and feeling confident in it
Losing weight and NOT feeling the side of chair
No more pain because less weight, less foot pain
Longer endurance in playing
sitting up taller and better posture
You probably get this one
More patient with kids and enjoying my time with them

I know these are not BIG dreams but living my life in a more healthy way is what I am fighting for! It creates good decisions and results in my life when I eat healthy. It helps my confidence and then helps my activity level and awareness level.

Being fat will not stop me from walking the streets of Paris, Texas or Paris, France, BUT I will feel good doing it if I am thinner and more energetic. I will get to see more sights by being healthy and I will wear prettier clothes and FEEL so much better and younger if I continue to progress the way I am doing.

I just do the best with what I can do today and don't regret it. I have to face the challenges that I have to go through today. That is all I can do.

Day 40 - Enrich Your Life

I can so relate to Maggie.....I will think more in-depth when I come back during my second round. I have learned so much from Beck and others who have posted. I'm moving forward and not giving up....that's a BIG change for me!

Thanks everyone for all your posts....they give me the "spark" I need to continue my journey!

Day 40 - Enrich Your Life
I've had to think about this one. I've retired a few years ago but even before then, I lived a pretty active life and still do. Improving my health and wellness has allow me to stay active as I get older. My short term goal is to complete the construction of our new home. Long term goal is to hike the Appalachian Trail (it may take me a couple of years). In the meantime, I living my life--it's a full time job!

Day 40 - Enrich Your Life

I totally agree with Dr. Beck on this one. The time to enjoy your life is now... not tomorrow and certainly not waiting until your reach your goal weight. My DH is going to be 72 later this month and I'm 61 so putting things off until "someday" just isn't realistic. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed daily as there is no guarantee that there will be a tomorrow. I learned this lesson years ago and regret that I didn't take it to heart even earlier in life. My DH and I have always loved to travel and we have been to many places both inside and outside of the US. Our current plan is to take at least one International trip every year, at least one long (one month or more) RV trip to new places in the US and several mini camp trips as we can fit them in. We live in Oregon and I'm fortunate to have family close by and spending time with family and creating memories is important. I have a long bucket list of things to do and places to go; and periodically I review the list and add new items or delete ones that no longer are relevant.

I read on someone's blog that losing weight is a full time job. Well, maybe in the beginning.

What I have found is once you make THE commitment ... I mean the ONE that is gonna get you where you want to be ... you put things in place to get there. Then it is following through.

Achieving health is my goal. Living life ... well that's what it is alllll about. We should empower ourselves to reach for our dreams and enrich our days with all the things that feed our souls.

Can you tell I have caught the wave??? I bought myself a non-food treat.

Enrich my life. I have pulled back from a few things as I have gotten heavier. I am making an effort to get back out and do what I want and need to do.

After reading this lesson the first time, I volunteered to coach a youth sports team. That enriched my life. I enjoyed it so much that I have volunteered to coach for another team (new season, new sport). I had held myself back from doing this before because I thought that I should look fitter before volunteering to coach. Glad I decided to go for it now.

Enrich your life - if we did our Beck homework and created time and energy for dieting and exercise, prioritized and down sized to do list. resolved problems, reduced stress...
we may tap into wast amounts of time and energy to enrich our lives!

It happened to me soon after I joined SP, and even more so after my first Beck reading.
Before June 2011, I had no energy and felt tired most days, from getting home to bedtime I ate a lot as a response to stress, and didn't have energy to do anything else, just watch TV and read. I couldn't imagine doing more.
Now, I have the same job, do similar amount of household chores, get more sleep... and still have time and energy for running, walking, hiking, yoga, dancing, gardening, visiting friends and my parents, going to 1-2 day silent retreats, and reading a lot.
These activities enrich my life.
If I had more free time, probably I would do these same things, just more of them.

For me, my life feels enriched simply by learning to eat better and getting out for walks. Being able to move easier ... getting in and out of a booth at a restaurant, sliding in and out from behind the wheel of my car, sitting down and getting up are all easier for me now. My life feels enriched simply because I'm more functional. It has made a world of difference in the quality of my life. I long for no particular adventures. I lead a pretty simple life and I like it that way.

Kriszta, canopy climbing sounds pretty adventurous if it's what I think it is. I'd like to try that some time. Enriching your life doesn't have to be all about adventure. It is whatever improves or enhances the quality of your life. You decide what quality means. To me enrichment is whatever makes you feel fulfilled, nurtured, and alive. Based on what you've shared in your posts and blogs, I'd say you live an enriched life.

June and Kathleen, your lists are amazing. Imagining you kayaking, rock climbing and swimming with the salmon made me happy.

I'm not an adventurous person, and love routines, my ways of enriching my life are simpler : )
-yoga, walking, running fills me with joy
-daily meditation: I stopped doing this for the duration of this Beck check, but will resume once we are past the 42 days and the follow up chapters
-reading all the Buddha's discourses (finished 3 major collections already) and more books on meditation
-resume silent retreats at my parents' summer house after winter is gone
-canopy park climbing, maybe even rock climbing - I love the safety of being secured to the steel cables

Life is good!

Interesting list, June.

Here's the list I fired off in about five minutes when I went through the book in the spring:
Paddle across Lake Winnebago in my kayak
Walk across Lake Winnebago in the winter
Learn Spanish
Finish my kids' scrapbooks (which I abandoned in 2008)
Organize my big box of mementos
Take a cooking class
Learn to use power tools
Decorate the master bedroom
Make a denim rug or quilt out of the old blue jeans in the basement
Become a better gardener
Read chronologically though the Bible
Bike to work at least 10 times each summer
Join a birding group
Run a half marathon
Visit the monthly exhibit at the local museum
Operate a bulldozer or similar really big machine

I have started learning Spanish, biked to work 12 times this summer, made a couple visits to local museums, and am about 3 months into a chronological reading of the Bible (just started Joshua last night). I can't do everything at once, and I'm sure I'll add to this list.

Live life, right?

List of goals I want to have fun doing before and after I lose weight.
Things that enrich my life that I will do or would like to do in the next year.


1 Rock climb
2 Spend more quality and quantity time with my family
3 Take a holiday with DH
4 Spend more time working on the farm
5 Improve my garden
6 Improve my sleep habits
7 Hike up Mt Cheam
8 Visit the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam
9 Mountain bike the logging roads on the mountains close to my place
10 Skate board the streets of Vancouver
11 Visit New Zealand
12 Snorkel in New Zealand
13 Swim in my wet suit with the spawning salmon up the creek
14 Explore the trails of Mt Sumas
15 Spend 2 weeks at a ski resort and ski from morning to night every day
16 Hike and camp the length of the Hudson Bay Trail
17 Travel with my nieces
18 Take a French conversation class
19 Learn Punjabi, the alphabet and the simple vocabulary
20 Learn the Arabic alphabet
21 Read the Bible from beginning to end
22 Memorize Proverbs - there is a chapter for every day of the month
23 Read all the Shakespeare plays
24 Attend music and performance art concerts, especially ones featuring young performers
25 Organize my office better and keep it organized

I can do all of these things before I lose weight, and I will when I can find the time ... except rock climb, because rock climbing will be my reward for getting to goal weight.

My sabotaging thought is - when I have enough time. I need to better organize my time. Right now I am living a laid-back lifestyle of part-time work, making nutritious meals on time for DH and me, walking and hiking with my friends and following my exercise plans (and spending time thinking through and following along the Beck Trek. This usually takes me more time than the recommended 30 minutes per day.). If I get better organized, I will be able to do more, but I am enjoying the privilege of doing less and not stressing right now.
So its a balance between doing more, organizing myself to be able to do more while not stressing more.


June -- Pacific Time Zone
Where you end up is more important than how fast or where you start out.
- Improved fitness and nutrition, energy and confidence are my rewards.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
A PH (personal high) is the main goal, a PB is the sometime icing on the cake.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.
Sopra le nebbie delle valle e le vicende della vita sorge una promessa di luce e serenita.

Day 40 is about enriching your life and not putting things off until you are slim. I understand. There were things I passed up because I was heavy. As a kid I hate to run because my fat jiggled!

I believe SparkPeople has enriched my life incredibly. I realize that I have given up computer games -- and I used to probably play 10 hours a week -- for Sparking. Much better activity.

After I retire in June I will spend considerable time working to enrich my life! And, of course, if eating and exercising are not center stage, they will not be off in the wings either. My health and maintenance (like sobriety to alcholics) is very important to me!


My Keys to Success = Tracking! Super Foods! Step Up Cardio! And most important: Quit Quitting!!

I have several hobbies that have fallen by the wayside. I think about them often, even make promises to myself get back to them. But, something else always interrupts... usually unimportant junk. I made a list of these activities that I want to get back to and an itemized plan to accomplish this. I'm going to spend less time with the two big time wasters--TV and surfing the Internet. It will feel good to actually DO what I dream of rather than kick myself for inaction.

It is interesting that I realized the need for this before I accepted the need to lose weight and exercise. I think I finally "got" that having a rich life requires being and staying healthy.

I have reduced or eliminated some activities while I have taken on others. I am doing more with DH and doing some volunteer work with him.

Life is good and getting better every day.

Focus on things other than food is a great dream for me.
When I first read this I thought Bucket List. I do still have dreams but my size never stopped me.
I like doing yoga and pilates. Hmm, maybe time to find another class.

Read this week Dec 6, 08

"...she'd focus on things other than food, and she'd have more mental energy to diet."

I like this quote. When I have other things going on in my life, I do eat less. What's weird is that I am always busy. I think I need to replace some of my hours being busy to having fun. In terms of goals and hobbies I am fine, but I need to spend time on fun too.

I'm in my 30s and am single. I am not interested in marrying or having a family now. My career is a high priority and I enjoy it. My hope is to travel more, and relax on a beach somewhere.

I finished this chapter. I am happy with life the way it is. I am an at home mom and I had the joy of seeing my 17 y/o grow from a baby to a fine and caring young man, I have been blessed to see my 14 y/o grow from a beautiful baby boy to a smart, handsome young man, and I was given the strength to give birth--- threw much suffering while I was pregnant-- to a special little brown eye boy who stills my heart. He is 11 y/o. I am content with the little things in life.

My husband I have grown older with a few grey hairs springing up ((I rebuke that in Jesus name on my behalf)))((grey hairs)). I had acute asthma as a small girl and almost left this world at age 8. At age 35 I had a near death experience from another acute asthma attack that was 12 years ago. But I remember it like it was yesterday. God spared me and gave me new life. I am blessed to be hear, and I have learned to love and except the small thing in life. I have learned to be content where I am. Oh yes, as I have said before since taken Christ as savior that old ugly asthma has all but gone. I am close to saying that I am healed.

My goals are small ones to make more time for God by daily devotionals, research out some new workout exercises/invest in new dvd to avoid burn out and finally start back crocheting. I have made several blankets but always manage to give them away.

Sandy... In response to an earlier post you made on this topic... I think being content is a gift. I'm content with my life... with being a wife and mother. I'm happy that I have learned to be grateful for what I have and to count my blessings.

As far as dreams and aspirations... I love art. Whenever I'm involved with art or the arts it enrichs my life.

I also think it's okay to be content where you're at. Our society/culture says we have to aspire/climb/and generally excell. If you're happy doing what you're doing why change.
I'm a little older than you. I've taken early retirement so I don't have the problem of juggling my time for work, but I enjoy volunteering at church, remodeling my home, learning more about computers, and researching my family history. I don't have great aspirations except to be happy and to love and enjoy my family.

Thanks be to God, I am achieving my goal!

5 years ago my weight was 292. I've been off and on diets since then until I found SparksPeople.
Now I'm getting back to were "I" want to be, 165#.
I discovered the book "The Beck Diet Solution" by Dr. Beck. Her book, which uses Cognative Therapy, is helping me to adjust my mind to think like a thin person. When I can convince my mind, my body will follow.

It's OK to be content. I'd like to have my own business..that is my dream. But I find it difficult to find the time while working part time and having a family. It's too bad I have to sleep, because I could use that time to work:). I keep trying to find a way.

This is one area where I definitely fall short; I don't have dreams and aspirations. I'm at that weird age (49 this month) where you still have 15 or more years to work so you wonder if you should change careers, but you're not 25 anymore and should you change careers. My one friend tells me I should do something I really enjoy doing but I have no clue what that is. I always wanted to be a mommy and I achieved that. Is it ok to be content? or is that lazy?

Do you have a dream for your life you'd like to accomplish? What goals have you set for yourself?
