Good Morning!
I just got my Becks Diet book. I'm brand new to this board and, having looked around a little bit, think that this is a great place to be.

I live in MN, have a husband and a 15 year old daughter. A dog, a cat, a hampster, and, possibly soon, a baby snake... that's another story all in itself.

A couple of years ago I was able to lose 35-40 lbs, and I've maintained that, but I really have another 45 to go. I think an online diet buddy would be a great choice for me and I could really use the accoutability.

Hope to talk to you soon,

Hi Amber...WELCOME to Beck. I think you will find the Beck Techniques helpful in learning to live with food.

Lots of folks use the monthly chat thread as their coach/buddy. Of course, not all. Some folks have a buddy away from 3fc and also participate in the daily chat.

Glad you posted.

Hello and welcome Amber (AmberPr) - I second the suggestion by Beverlyjoy that you drop by the monthly Beck thread for discussion, support, buddy, and coaching.

The July thread just started:

Welcome, Amber! Another Minnesodan. I can't wait til you have had enough posts so I can pm you! It seems to me, and I think most of us will agree, that posting here keeps us accountable, which I think is the point of having a coach, and since we are all working the Beck Diet Solution, we are the best coaches possible.

We all coach each other, and it works.

Hope you are all away from your computers and enjoying the 4th of July weekend. I will join you on the monthly thread as suggested.

"Talk" to you soon, Amber
