Hi everyone,

Just a quick check in tonight. Enjoyed Thanksgiving Day outside in the sun- we had a high of 11 degrees today so very nice for this time of year.

I ate on plan today but my plan included more calories than usual for dinner. I have decided that on special occasions I am no longer going to set myself for failure by trying to ignore the day. That usually leads to eating off plan, feeling like I failed, and then using that as an excuse to overeat a lot. So today I ate my usual breakfast and lunch but included a bit of gravy on the potatoes and a piece of pie at dinner in the plan. And it all worked because although it was a higher calorie day, I did not do a huge overeat and stayed with what I had planned ahead of time. So pleased with this.

And, in honor of your first post,

How did you discover the books by Dr. Judith Beck?

And how did you find our thread here on 3 Fat Chicks?

Thumbs up Tuesday

Diet Coaches/Buddies Walked to the dentist, CREDIT moi, where I was told that my flossing was good, but that something under a filling was causing a problem. So we'll have to go exploring. I'm not so fond of dentists. I feel like a prisoner when sitting in that chair with the table rotated over me, tubes everywhere.

Meals were on plan, CREDIT moi, but snacking too large - Ouch.


onebyone Waving. Voted today.

Joy (gardenerjoy) You look dashing, LOL.

CeeJay - Super Kudos for conquering the holiday by making a plan that you could follow. I do know that feeling of letting a diversion become a total loss of being in control.

maryann - I know that "last supper" syndrome.

Ann (Newlifestyle) - "Food planned" is a great way to return from vacation.

Beth (bethFromDayton) Those 50 pounds gone are pretty special; it's worth seeking out some Beck strategies to keep them gone. Good luck with a busy week.

anakin - Having a plan for the day is a great start - Kudos. One of the challenges is to have plans that can be followed even in the 'off' days. Hope that posting here will be helpful. Glad you've joined us.

Hello coaches,

Beach was fabulous. Kayaked, bushwalked and had lots of walks on the sand. Found myself thinking "this is the person I want to be" :-) being in a different space also gave me room to think about how to help my girls be healthier - and to realise that there are parts of the diet I was following that I wasn't liking. So - have just changed to the Plan B diet - the Dash diet. Mor grains and fruit, less protein. Day 3 and liking it so far. And have some concrete steps worked out for helping my girls. Looking forward to putting them into action when they are with me again. They have been away longer than the normal routine and I am missing them heaps.

Maryann - amazing hw different a perspective can be. If I had been in your AA meeting I would have been watchng you and saying to myself "wow that chick is so amazing, I wish I was brave and wise enough to actually deal with the problem and not just pretend nothing is wrong. I hope I can be a bit more like her one day!"

Happy Birthday Beth!

New lifestyle - super kudos for not testing your vacation as a vacation from the eating plan. I had the same experience on my little mini brak at the beach and "who knew - it didn't mean I had any less fun" :-)

Seadwaters - hello! Nice to "see" another Aussie face

BBE - loved the story of your 9 year old nature enthusiast.

National Parker - trail walk with howling coyotes does sound beautiful

Anakin - welcome! Those sound like 3 great goals. I look forward to hearing how you have gone.

Ceejay - what a great insight about setting yourself up for success on special occassions

Hi Coaches!

Please forgive me if you read the SouthBeachDailyThread...I posted virtually the same message there this morning. I am running out of time this morning and so a cut and paste check in is better than none. I have so much I want to say to you all yet must leave the house very soon for my mom's day surgery.
Welcome to our newcomer, anakin, and welcome back to our special Beckster, Cheryl(seadwaters)!

onebyone, I voted today, and all the past days, too!

I had thought several weeks ago that it couldn't get any busier and yet everything has kicked up another notch. The good news is that I stay very close to plan, I'm just 2 pounds off my ticker and I feel absolutely great!

I got through last week at my "real job" working extra days for 2 missing coworkers. I also got a crew lined up for the renovation at my mom's vacant rental. The heating guy almost has the furnace installed at the personal reno that DH and I have been working towards finishing since May. The crazy news is that mom has 2 more renters leaving the end of this month and I think one of them is going to leave a mess. (That was Friday night's news). So, I just continue one day at a time and remind myself that this, too, shall pass. Thanks to all of you, (and my SouthBeach friends), I totally understand bailing on my food plan during this time is only going to make things worse. Credit!

I read posts every day and am keeping up with everyone here. It's just difficult for me to post from my iphone and as difficult to find time to sit down at my computer. Someone is always "needing me". Lol. Today I leave at 730am. My mom is finally having a melanoma removed from her face. We will make several stops on the way down and I'm sure she'll just rest this afternoon. I'll head up to mom's project after my return as DH will be working up there while he awaits the arrival of the roll off dumpster we need to facilitate the reno up there. Fortunately, I am very calm. I do think that healthy eating seems to help me with the ability to stay focused and calm.

Have a great day everyone!

Hi Everyone
thanks for kind thoughts.
I ordered Beck books and then left town for a few days. I've been reading books the last 2 days and will start day one today.
I'm a bit scared but that seems to be the norm when starting.

I'm also trying to change my name. 27togo was 3 years ago and I have more 'to go' now. I'll let everyone know new name.

Nancy

We grilled last night for possibly the last time in a while. It's raining today and then our highs will be in the lower 60s for awhile. We're also just getting the first tinge of yellow in the leaves on the maples in our yard. Feels like fall!

WI: +0.05 kg, Exercise: +45 670/1400 minutes for October, Food: 100% op, Read my Advantages and Responses: yes

BillBlueEyes: I'm not paying as much attention to baseball as I should given that the Cards are still in it, but even I saw, yesterday, a replay of the Grand Slam and the attempted catch. Exciting times in Boston.

bethfromDayton: You said: "And I need to figure out why I'm talking myself out of using Beck techniques to make good food decisions." Maybe. Sometimes I get stuck on the "why" but never manage to figure it out. What often works better for me is to figure out the "how." How am I going to make a better decision today? How can I devise my plan so that I'll follow it? How can I plan my evening so that temptations aren't a part of it?

Welcome, anakin!

CeeJay: good job with a special Thanksgiving meal. That technique, of allowing myself some controlled treats on special occasions, has worked well for me as well.

I feel like I'm passing through here rather than settling in and getting caught up the past few days, but am doing well on plan and committing to cutting back my meal portions. Sad to realize that I need less than I want. And will have that for the rest of my days. But I guess that carries through to every single aspect of my life, right?!

Got out for another after-dark trail walk and the moon had a huge halo around it; gorgeous and something that I'd not seen before - the immensity. I'd seen close ones, but we gazed upward for a good bit of our walk. Then with jettrails coming from different angles, it resembled a peace sign; I sure wish I could have photographed that, but my mind's camera will make it even more stunning in memory...

Last night to walk after dark as DH goes back to work tomorrow and gets home late and no interest in walking after 14 hours on his feet, which I understand. SO my goal for tomorrow is to get out on the trail with our pooch, earlier. HOLD me to it!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick check in tonight. My day started off eating sugar during a boring, annoying meeting- somehow I either need to learn how to not turn to food in these situations or to find more excuses to miss these stupid meetings. I then went out for an unhealthy lunch instead of eating the healthy lunch I had brought. Back on plan tonight with a sensible dinner. Moving on...grrrr....

Staying in hotel tomorrow night so will check in on Thursday.

Take care.

Hi all,

gardenerjoy--thank you--that makes sense to me. One thing I am going to do is put copies of my ARC and a few other key response cards on the kitchen counter. I generally keep the counters totally cleaned off, but perhaps having the ARC right where I see it while making dinner and re-reading my cards at the dangerous time of day for me will be helpful.

Today was okay, food-wise, even though I didn't have a written plan. DH had eaten what I expected to have for breakfast, so I substituted another breakfast, we had lunch out at Subway and I made good choices, ate my planned snack and nothing more, and then made good choices at Panera for dinner with DD. Too much eating out, but with good choices.

As ever, breakfast, lunch, and snack are easy for me. Dinner and after is hard--so dinner and after is when I'm going to read my cards--and maybe even post earlier in the evening as a "break" point and motivator.

Thanks all--another "too late" night for me (3 hour round trip to take DD back to school after her afternoon surgeon's appt) (he released her from care--she's doing great).

Thumbs up Wednesday - Dictionary Day in honor of Noah Webster

Diet Coaches/Buddies All eating was on plan, CREDIT moi, which feels good since I've had a snacking problem of late. Dinner included swordfish since Whole Foods was able to convince DW that it was sustainably harvested. Seems like a year since I've had that.

Exercise was nil. My back did its thing that it does about once a year that makes walking painful. A day with a heating pad usually makes it go away. I'll work harder this time to find an exercise that helps it. I was dressed for gym when it happened - but the body doesn't give points for good intentions.


onebyone Waving. Voted today.

Joy (gardenerjoy) Yep, the feeling of Fall is happening. Congrats to your Cardinals for leading 3-1. The Red Sox won last night to lead 2-1; sure hope we make it to meet your guys. Kudos for "Food: 100% op" - it's so encouraging to me when you do that.

CeeJay - A "boring, annoying meeting" when there's work to be done grates the soul. Ouch for falling for sugar; Yay for getting back on your horse.

Debbie (Lexxiss) Good grief! Will locusts be next? Kudos for recognizing that sane eating is helping you stay calm when facing so many challenges at once.

nationalparker The challenge in a nutshell, "I need less than I want" - as you point out, in many parts of our lives as well as in food.

Beth (bethFromDayton) Kudos for recognizing "the dangerous time of day" so you can address it. Ouch for a long day; glad your DD is OK enough to go right back to school.

ForMyGirls - Beautiful reminder, "this is the person I want to be", that we're in this for a reason. Kudos for all the fun exercise.

Nancy (CattHill) nee (27toGo) - Welcome to day 1. Yep, "a bit scared" seems like an aware feeling for a life change. Which Beck books are you reading? (I use both your avatars just this once to help me make the transition.)

Hello coaches,

Hugely important day today. Introduced my girls to the idea of helping them live healthier lives too. They absolutely leapt at it which was 1 part relief and 9 parts heartbreak. I suspected / hoped that there might be self-motivation on their part but I had no idea just how heavy this stuff was sitting for them. We had an afternoon of active play and healthy food and have concrete plans for building ever healthier lives from here.

I passed the half-way point of my exercise goal at the half-way point of the month. I love it when that happens!

I also had a bunch of spontaneous exercise yesterday -- mostly climbing stairs, but also some hauling around the big shop vac as we worked to reorganize the mud room and find new homes in the basement and upstairs for things that didn't fit.

WI: -0.05 kg, Exercise: +50 720/1400 minutes for October, Food: 90% op, Read my Advantages and Responses: yes

bethfromDayton: I love the idea that posting earlier might make a difference in your evening. Glad that DD is doing so well!

ForMyGirls: so good to see that your girls are on board for a healthier lifestyle.

Thumbs up 4 pgs later

Becksters, Coaches, Buddies, Friends, hello.

I had to go back 4pgs to catch up with you guys. Glad I did.

I have been pondering what the deal is with me -- how come 19lbs have come back on, how come I just stopped trying, how come I hid out for a while. My brother's death and my mother's move really socked it to me. But, as is the case for me, it always comes after the event. During I can hang in there, even if it is wobbly, but as things calm down/as I calm down, I eat eat eat. It occurs to me that this makes sense cause when it's calm my true feelings can rise up and since I am emotionally exhausted I simply don't want to know=eating/hiding. had to face myself via the dr. stuff and so I had my orbital xray--i thought this meant a whole body scan, like an orbit around you. i was surprised it only meant eyes! DH said "haven't you heard of a hockey player breaking his orbital bone?" Um, no. The results clear me for the MRI whenever that gets scheduled. I started the cholesterol pills *sigh* and the ran out of BP pills so stopped by the clinic where my dr is and got in right away (huh) and he was glad I was on them (sigh) and was also glad i have test requistion/follow up bloodwork to make sure the new meds aren't messing up my (i was told this) fatty liver (due to being overweight for many years-sigh again). All this health stuff has me cornered. The only way to change those numbers, the only way to get off pills (if they are weight-related and not something else) is to get fit. Get healthy.

I am simply unwilling to give in. And so, I am back here, with all you guys. So many of you are great examples of how to do this right=effectively.
I'm not going back to 294+. I'm just not. I'm not even going into the 270+. It stops here.

Thanks, btw, to those who are voting for me. BBE you asked if the positioning of my image on the page corresponds to votes and I doubt it. I had an update of the count late last week. I was not in the top 3. But we still have 2 weeks so who knows? It still irks me that the artist who is able to conjure up the most votes wins the 5K public commission. That's a big deal prize--esp as a popularity contest. Oh well! If I do manage to win I know I'll make something awesome.

Bye for now.

Hi all,

I didn't manage to post earlier this evening--but that's because I haven't stopped since I got home until about 10 minutes ago. Meals were OP today, as was snack.

I went to Sam's Club and bought tons of food for our weekend house party--and gave into the "that looks good" reaction only to "real" food that I could serve for meals next week. I got a few bags of chips, but no sweets. People will bring sweets--but I didn't stock up on them!

I had just a few things I wanted to get done with the house before the big party--did almost none of them. DH said he could do one of the chores tomorrow--but it's a two person chore, and tomorrow I will be making 10 lbs worth of sloppy joes and making beds and doing other "get the house ready for many overnight guests".

Breakfast is planned, lunch and snack are packed, dinner is planned. I'll need to run by the grocery store on the way home to acquire some produce, but it's all figured out. I even packed DH's lunch. On the days I make big salads with chicken leftovers, I make one for him, too.

I'm exhausted--and need to get good sleep tonight because partying all weekend is tiring.
