  • This article is eleven years old! :D

    For my diet, my doctor recommended a meal tracking app, and I think it's helped somewhat. I also found mood tracking apps for more than just eating. Give them a shot!
  • I was so impressed by your article that I decided to write about each step for behavioral change in my journal! Hey, if this is the way to be healthy, brain strong and functional in my later years, I'm gonna take notes! Thanks so much!!
  • Reflecting is key to learning.

    Thanks!
  • I will be using these concepts for more than weight loss!
  • Knowing the actual steps involved in this type of behavior change (Praxis), with an explanation of the how's and why's is exactly what I need to make changes. I will apply this process to more areas of my life than weight loss. THANK YOU!

    I like the concept of the Before-After-During journal for writing the techniques or combinations that we try. I especially like that term then just a food journal. I've always found those to demotivate me.
  • This is a great article! I agree that weighing yourself is the opposite of being mindful of the changes taking place within your body; in fact, the scale is a BIG DISTRACTION and makes it almost impossible to focus on what's really important.
  • Oh ! I like the "dig deeper for motivation" statement! i NEED TO REMEMBER THAT !
  • I've known for a long time that the key to healthy mind, body, and spirit is mindful awareness, not only of the inner world, but also how one is affected by the external world. Know Thyself. Accepting "what is" is the first step in making any change, and to know "what is" requires keen, non-judgmental observation and honest, objective, fearless self evaluation.

    Responsibility...the ability to respond. The crucial question becomes how to respond appropriately and with tender, loving self-care.
