Beck Diet Solution Day Seven

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Today is also day 18 for us streakers! emoticon

Today's Beck lesson is an important one for healthy eaters and one that I am thankful I learned quite some time ago so it is easy.

Today's lesson is about rearranging or cleaning up our food environment of things that are "offensive" to us in our new way of life. Thankfully, my biggest help in this is that John (DH) was never a "junk" eater. The only "junk" things he ever has around are a few chocolate candies that he keeps on hand but hardly ever touches. I am blessed because I gave up all sugar two years ago this past September because I was classed as "pre-diabetes" so I just cut all of it out that I could...it's in everything so I just don't eat things that have more than 5 grams of sugar per serving.

One suggestion in the book is to throw away offending items in your home which used to bother me (old childhood thing) but I have NO problem throwing things out anymore because it is even worse if I put it in my body.

In this step is also a suggestion to put the smaller luncheon sized plates at the forefront and use smaller utensils, etc. These are all good. I have used luncheon sized plates for years for myself. I eat a lot of Kashi cereal with yogurt so just two days ago went and ordered smaller spoons to eat with. They are called "coffee spoons" and though I couldn't hold them in my hand to see they are supposed to be smaller than regular teaspoons. I ordered them from Crate & Barrel.

Thankfully, I am retired now so I don't have to deal with all the fantastic goodies brought into the office. But suggestions are given for how to work through that also.

To recap what we have learned thus far and continue doing each and every day:

I read my Advantages Response Card at least twice (I read it ate least four times).

I read other Response Cards as needed.

I ate slowly, sitting now and noticing EVERY bite (my FAVORITE...it works).

I gave myself credit when I engaged in helpful "dieting" behaviors (this one I have to work at each day...it just doesn't come natural to me).

I made changes at home.

I am still loving this program and all the support from my fellow-Beck Solution buddies and readers of my blogs. emoticon

Onward we go!

Have a blessed Thursday everyone! It's 32 here in Michigan!

And there will be food brought in. All I can think of saying is "Thank you, but no thank you" and try not to feel guilty about it. Or give in and say tomorrow's a new day. But I don't want to give up our streak.

Beck Diet Solution Day Six

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Here I am at day six...either ALREADY or FINALLY. Already, because it seems to be flying....but FINALLY, because I want it to even go faster than it is....so that I will reach maintenance and "be a maintainer"! In other words, I will already know it ALL! LOL...NOT!

Seriously, there has been SO much packed into my brain these past five days that at times I got just a tiny bit panicked, that I couldn't do it. But that was just ME.

Today is the day we find a coach. Most of you know that SLENDERELLA61 graciously offered to be my coach early on. She is an awesome coach, however, right now she has some health issues plaguing her and she has more important things on her mind than coaching.

Thus, I have changed coaches and have one main one and two online sparkers that are doing the program at the same time as I am and we all sparkmail each day. It has worked out very well.

My main coach is my main coach in life and has been coaching me in so very many things for over 20 years....my beloved DH, John. I am so thankful for him and he IS a thin person...both in body and in his mind and as with everything else in my life he knows me better than anyone else could.

I will recap my positives thus far...

I did very well at sitting down to eat my meals. I have been doing that since day 1. I actually LIKE it. and John sits with me every time even if he doesn't eat.
I did well moving my body....exercising.
I did very well at making healthy food choices. I have found for some time I actually prefer healthy food....our tastes really DO change and our bodies crave healthy food.
I did an excellent job of eating slowly...I actually count in my head my bites (but that is the kind of person I am very methodical at 99% of things I do)

I continue to read my ARS response cards four or more times per day to remind myself WHY I am doing this program and benefitting from it.

I read my other response cards as needed for certain sabotaging thoughts.

I do have to tell you a couple things I have noticed and one funny thing that happened to me yesterday.

The funny thing: I was fixing my lunch sandwich yesterday and had that ready and decided to fix some cucumber slices to go along with it. When I was done I popped a half of a cucumber slice into my mouth and STOPPED DEAD! I was standing up! I quickly ran to the table and sat down and then chewed it! It was SO automatic...I have to be on guard at all times! But I recovered from that slip very well also!

The thing I have noticed for two days now is that when I eat according to the Beck "rules" I have not been able to eat all the food I had planned....and not NEARLY what I HAD been eating pre-Beck. I have actually felt fullness for two days in a row...something I don't EVER remember feeling in my life before!

This program is opening a whole new life for me or way of life. And I am so thankful for the others that are working their programs or reworking their programs at the same time...you have ALL become my coaches too and I am thankful for every one of you.

One last thing, please continue to pray for SLENDERELLA61 as she awaits some results this week! I hope she doesn't mind me asking.

emoticon

OOPS keep forgetting today is day 17 of the ongoing streak!

    The funny thing was very funny. I've stopped taking a bite of food (when microwaving) to check if it's warmed and only touch the food to my lips. They're sensitive enough to sense warmth and I'm not eating standing!

    Yep, I love it too! And I had a similar incident with eating food standing up, but it wasn't quite in my mouth as yet...but I did run to sit. I'm thinking that this Beck program actually teaches us about ourselves. I didn't realize how often I ate standing up. Before Beck, I would have said that I basically didn't! Wow, this has been an eye opener. Oh yes and, for as much as I like to pre-plan, I would have also said that I really didn't use to eat anything that wasn't pre-planned...NOT SO!

So onward we go...praying for Slenderella 61, praying for each other, and working hard on our lessons.

Cheers!

Beck Diet Solution Day Five

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Today is Day 5! And from WATERMELLEN's and SANDICANE's blogs on day 15 that is when I will actually begin the "diet".

I love the way SANDICANE reviews each days build-up of our steps so I am "borrowing" them for mine.

-re-affirmed why I want to lose weight and keep it off forever Day 1
-solidified my eating program Day 2
- ate sitting down Day 3
-ate sitting down while I gave myself credit for eating well, and sitting down Day 4
-ate slowly and mindfully, while sitting down, while congratulating myself. Day5

Day five is eating slowly and mindfully today. I have learned this one in the past but now realize that it is NOT a temporary thing...but I will have to do this EVERY meal and for the rest of my natural life. I don't mind because it is truly working.

I DO taste the food now and I DO check the texture of every bite. I also COUNT my bites of the food I am eating in my head. I count to 20 each time and for me it helps (told you I am a structured person).

There are some other things to practice that I haven't done before. She suggests setting a timer every so often just to remind one to SLOW down and she suggests putting our fork or eating utensil down every couple bites and to use different placemat or utensils so that each time we notice the new item it reminds us to slow down.

As I told you I never learned these things from my childhood so they are all new and I am loving each and every one of them.

Each day we make more and new cards of reminders....so far I am reading them all as I should but sometimes, until I actually start it it overwhelms me then after I do it...not so much. This is all the preparatory work so I know it will settle down soon!

Have a blessed Tuesday everyone! It's foggy here in MI

Beck Diet Solution Day Four Plus Workbook

Monday, October 27, 2014

First, so I don't forget, today is day 15 of our streak...Julie (SHAWFAN) keeps me on track with the days so I don't forget.

We are traveling south today for some business concerning our move next spring so I did my Beck early this morning.

Beck Solution Day Four
I sort of panicked today....I have been making the suggested reminder cards and notes and putting them everywhere....and I wondered....HOW will I EVER remember all this? The ANSWER....ONE thing at a TIME. I feel a little better with that.

Today we are to begin "giving ourselves credit" the better explanation of it is from WATEREMELLEN's blog on returning to Beck here:

http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public
_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799645

THANK YOU WATERMELLEN!

We are traveling south today for some business so I am a bit pressed for time and have no idea when we will get home...but I have my required cards and responses and have already planned the eating part of the day.

We are told all the things we are to give ourselves credit for because most of us are self-critical ( I am probably the worst at this) so this one will take some time. But it is like when at a store and they are giving out samples of things to taste. Well, that as well as many of the steps in the program so far I stopped a LONG time ago. But I never have actually patted myself on the back for it. But I do recognize that I NEED to master this step to really progress or I will always have a defeatist attitude.

I worked the workbook also and though I thought it was repetitious only I discovered it IS very worthwhile. In the back are the pre-printed "response cards" and just some very good additions to the main Pink Beck book.

I am so thankful that WATERMELLEN and SANDICANE are ahead of me to go and see their take on the day I am on. It has helped me tremendously. THANK YOU BOTH!

And of course my coach SLENDERELLA61...even in her busy life she is always helping others and this time it's ME emoticon . THANK YOU

Again, I want everyone to know how amazing the program is and I am enjoying how I feel about it and about myself. I have already lost some weight but I love the way my body FEELS when I am doing what I should!

Have a truly blessed Monday everyone!

Beck Diet Solution Day Three Plus Workbook

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Today is Day 3 and we are told to eat sitting down. ALWAYS and I, in the past, NEVER sat down to eat. But today (and actually I began yesterday in anticipation of this day and we ate out at a restaurant) I am starting my "new way of thinking like a thin person".

I actually like this part of it. I have known to do this for a long time but never did because I am a hyper-type A person and am ALWAYS doing two or more things at once. But since I am super determined to do this right I WILL do this and will do it every day henceforth! I WANT THIS TO WORK. I'm sure there will be some times that I have to eat on the run but it will definitely become the exception and not the rule.

The workbook works right along with the book, but for me it just helps more by repetition. (Repetition, Repetition, Repetition).

It has a checklike....

I read my list of reasons to lose weight (and other response Cards as needed). CHECK

I ate everything while sitting down CHECK.

As I said, I am totally enjoying this program. I don't know if I never learned correctly these basic things as a child (I suspect this is the truth because my mother was a full time working mother...and didn't really know how to BE a mother) but I am loving learning "correct" ways to eat.

Again, I would recommend these books to ANYONE with a problem with weight.

It's gorgeous here in MI so I am going outside to get my body moving now to wear off my lunch.

I'm so excited we are at two weeks of our streak, I've logged in, done trivia and have started on my water for the day. Healthy breakfast with fruits in a half hour.
Have a blessed day Gaye.

    I realized I was having food amnesia because I would have my snacks as I was running around, which didn't 'feel' like I ate anything! Sitting down helps me slow down and taste!

    I'm so glad you're loving the program, as am I. Yep, at 59 years old, I'm ready for Beck's lessons!!!! I'm sooooooooooooooo ready. And today is Day 13 for me and I have found the lesson that will change my life forever, if I can just master it!

Onward we go!!

    I am so glad you are loving the sit down to eat part, which help keep me motivated to do the same! Hubby and I just got back from walk at Genesys on their trails, and went there yesterday too, after raking the lawn! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon on following the plan. I just may look at this book because I am in need of making some changes. My husband do sit at the table for dinner most nights. This is one step I would do well with.

    Good for you. It's actually such a pleasure to give ourselves the time to eat slowly and mindfully, sitting down and tasting every bite!!
