Re-Beck and rebellion - Day 17 continued
Tuesday, October 17, 2017      10 comments

The "Experiment" of putting more on my plate than planned, pushing it to the side, and leaving it there until the end of the meal was performed last night at supper. I had cooked hot dogs and sauerkraut. Normally, I would cook exactly the ... Read more
Re-Beck Day 17 - End Overeating
Monday, October 16, 2017      22 comments

First, a confession: I have been out of compliance over the weekend. As in not doing the Beck things, not reading, and rebelling against food plan as well. But I have two folks I'm "coaching", and so, rebellious brain and all, I'm doing the a... Read more
Sometimes life just rushes by too fast
Sunday, October 15, 2017      22 comments

Well, yesterday was the annual Ironman World Championship race in Kailua, Kona, Hawaii. Two of our locals were racing, and the tri club planned a watch party in Omaha. I did not go, preferring to stay in my own cave and stream it at my leisure... Read more
Re-Beck Days 15 and 16 - monitor eating and prevent unplanned eating
Saturday, October 14, 2017      15 comments

So... I did it... Thursday I planned. Friday I monitored. And I read and used techniques from Day 16 on Friday, too. Because this year, these skills need beefing up! I admit that I do not do EXACTLY the method of recording that Dr. Beck ... Read more
Re-Beck Day 14 - plan for tomorrow and Starting Week 3
Friday, October 13, 2017      19 comments

This is a skill / practice that I've never completely abandoned... it's so ingrained from years of maintenance. BUT... the areas where I've slipped recently were in sticking WITH the plan! That's my challenge of the year... the giving in and g... Read more
Re-Beck Day 13 for real - overcome cravings
Thursday, October 12, 2017      13 comments

I ran out of blog time this morning, but what I had already begun doing, on a generic level, was using the mindset techniques introduced on Day 13. But before we get to the mindset techniques, let's talk about TRACKING cravings. We're aske... Read more
Before starting Re-Beck Day 13 - overcome cravings
Thursday, October 12, 2017      14 comments

The day lessons are building on each other by this time. "Overcome Cravings" involves two things from prior lessons: recognizing that you're dealing with a craving, as opposed to hunger or simple desire to eat. And the discomfort scale we per... Read more
Re-Beck Day 12 - the roller coaster of mood versus discomfort
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      12 comments

Polly Perfectionist was giving me a hard time all day long. Was it cheating, she wondered, that I allowed myself sugar free gum? Coffee? And wasn't it cheating that I allowed myself that morning snack? But, in the end, I survived. Here'... Read more
Re-Beck Day 12 - practice hunger tolerance
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      16 comments

Yes, the "dreaded Day 12" - the one so many don't want to do, resist doing, etc. The day we deliberately skip a meal to firmly demonstrate to ourselves that we're not gonna "die" of hunger, that it's not an emergency! I remembered that the... Read more
Re-Beck Day 11 - the rest of the day
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      13 comments

I left off with breakfast hunger monitoring. The rest of the day went like this: Morning snack was deferred three times. Normally I go for recess walk about 10 a.m., but someone came to my cube and I was involved in a work conversation un... Read more
Re-Beck Day 11 - hunger, desire and cravings
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      15 comments

Can you detect the difference? Beck contends that most dieters (OK most folks who develop weight problems) have difficulty distinguishing among these. I would contend that even if we CAN tell the difference, we don't ACT differently... we lack... Read more
Re-Beck Day 10 - set a realistic goal (A bonus blog)
Monday, October 09, 2017      11 comments

Doing a two-fer today, since I skipped a day with the blogs being under the weather, and because Day 10 is also a "skim through it" kind of day for me. First off, I resist setting a goal in terms of WEIGHT! But being honest right now, I ca... Read more
Re-Beck Day 9 - select an exercise plan
Monday, October 09, 2017      18 comments

I often skim and speed past Day 9, because I have long accepted that for ME, exercise is not only essential to the weight loss equation, it is among my REASONS for wanting to keep excess pounds at bay. I value my independence. Being able t... Read more
Re-Beck Day 8 - create time and energy
Saturday, October 07, 2017      24 comments

For me, personally, creating time and energy is not really an issue. I work part-time. I live by myself (with two cats). I'm soon to retire. I don't have any of the distractions of child-care, or transport of others, etc. In fact, this free... Read more
Re-Beck Week 2 - Get Set: Prepare to Diet
Friday, October 06, 2017      19 comments

Oh, how many of us dislike, maybe strongly, that word "diet". I've addressed it before, how the only way I am OK with it is in the sense of dictionary definition... "diet: 1 a) what a person or animal usually eats and drinks; daily fare" ... Read more
