Beck Diet Solution - I'm new too...

View Full Version : I'm new too...

I did post on another thread on 3FC but since I'm using Beck's book, thought this is where I'd like to connect.

I have not had weight problems (other than being always on a diet as a teen), but last winter I gained 12 pounds in 6 weeks (per my medical records), and then continued to gain another 5 over a few months. I do think something went awry with my thyroid, but as I am very sensitive to medications, I have not chosen to go that route.
Anway, I have read a fair amount of the Beck diet book (green, not pink) and I just got a copy of the pink journal. So I'm really just starting out.
Just reading some of the book and making an effort to sit down while eating, I have 2 pounds in this past week.
I'm a stay-at-home mom with 3 kids.
I would also like to use this site for my Diet Buddy, although I plan to ask a friend to help me with accountability too.

Hi Marci (madrikh) - glad you made it to the Beck Forum.

People posting on the monthly Beck thread serve each other as Diet Coach / Diet Buddy. It seems to work well for many. Some folks post every day, others as they can. Some people reply to none, some to a few, some to a bunch. We each work out our own formula. You're most welcome to join us.

Hope you make it over there.
