Default The Solution from Scratch

In the past, I've found significant success with the Beck Diet Solution. However :

(1) I've drifted. I find myself surrendering to my sabotaging thoughts all too often; and

(2) I've not yet achieved my ultimate weight and body fat composition. Once I find myself within the realm of reasonable, my motivation to stay on task diminishes significantly.

That changes today. I will post each day of the Beck Diet Solution for the next six weeks. To ensure accountability, I'm creating my own thread, but company would be welcomed and most appreciated. If anyone else has just begun the Beck Diet Solution, I would love to join forces!

Day 1

Advantages Response Card

Nelia's ADVANTAGES (Enlightened)

■ I manage self according to my values and not immediate gratification.
■ I celebrate my physicality and give my body the appreciation it deserves.
■ I live an exceptional and full life. My intellectual, spiritual and physical capacity is unlimited.
■ I live healthfully, habitually and effortlessly.
■ I am equipped to eat healthy for two when pregnant.

Nelia's ADVANTAGES (Real Talk)

■ I am a bombshell. The essence of luscious, inside and out.
■ My jeans and my thighs get along. Damn it.
■ I profile. On a beach. In a bikini.
■ I don't feel like the jolly black (fat) giant while living in Cambodia. I represent.
■ I don't camouflage. I highlight and showcase.
■ Nothing in my closet is too small. Nothing.
■ When shopping with girlfriends, strategic positioning is no longer required in open dressing rooms.
■ My skin is crystal clear.
■ I hop onto my motorbike lightly.
■ I floss a coke bottle profile with a teeny tiny waist.
■ I no longer have a bean bag for a stomach that sags when I'm sleeping on my side. I'm lean with no extra baggage!

Hi Nelia! Just here to cheer you on. Looks like a great start! Love the ADVANTAGES, especially the Real Talk version.

Default Day 2 - Diet Plan

DAY 2

Primary - Primal
Back up - Eat. Stop. Eat.

Sabotaging Thought. I want a fresh start, therefore I can't start until I find a fresh diet.

Helpful Response. Nelia. There's nothing fresh about consuming less calories than you burn. Stop being persnickety, pick a dang diet and let's get the scale moving.

Sabotaging Thought. I'm bored with diets. I'm just gonna wing it.

Helpful Response. Really, Nelia? Interesting. Because you don't seem bored when the number on the scale becomes smaller. And you certainly don't seem bored when you can slide on a pair of jeans without an epic battle. Winging it hasn't reduced the thunder in your thighs. A diet has. Pick one and stick with it.

Thumbs up

Welcome to the Beck Forum, Nelia,

Love the notion of posting daily to hold yourself accountable for the 42 day Program. In fact, that's just what I did myself some four years ago, and it's been motivation enough for me to stick around.

I, too, love your Real Talk advantages. I particularly relate to "Nothing in my closet is too small. Nothing." The thought of owning clothes that are too big was a lost idea, LOL.

Feel free to continue posting here on your own thread, or feel free at anytime to join folks on the monthly thread. Or both. We're not big on administrative rules around here.

Glad you've joined us.

@BillBlueEyes Thank you for the warm welcome! And I'll definitely be dropping by upstairs to see how the experts conduct themselves from time to time. Four years of maintenance is nothing to play with. Very impressive!

Question. Were you all by yourself for the entire 42 days? Or did anyone join you?

DAY 3

Sabotaging Thought. Eating while standing up isn't really an issue for me.

Helpful Response. Really, Nelia? You mean to tell me you've never sneaked a sample? Never grabbed a plate or two at a cocktail party? Or started eating the microwave popcorn before you sat on the sofa? Own up. And commit. We eat only when sitting down.

Thank you, ma'am! Hopefully you'll check on me from time to time. I'm likely to get lonely or worse lazy without that supportive and wise friendship! Can't wait to get to know y'all better!

DAY 4

Sabotaging Thought. Giving myself credit before I've actually accomplished something just feels ridiculous.

Helpful Response. Excellent. Then giving yourself credit on a regular basis shouldn't be a problem, since your accomplishing something on a regular basis. Every time you pick your behind up and head out for a run; every time you order the salad instead of the fish and chips; every time you console yourself with a good book rather than a plate of Mrs. Fields cookies qualifies as something. Nelia, if you want to get off the roller coaster permanently, then you had better learn to appreciate the smaller "somethings" that lead to the bigger "somethings." Start stretching and get prepared for a lot of back patting.

Oops! I missed that you asked me a question over here! My game plan changed, a lot. Boredom is an enemy. I didn't care if I changed plans as long as I was always following one! I discovered that I like exchange plans, the kind where you count servings of starches, vegetables, etc. I tried an exchange plan of my own devising based on the USDA's Food Pyramid, the DASH diet, the one in the Beck's green book, and Richard Simmons Food Mover. Now, I'm back to one of my own devising, but influenced by everything I've tried.
