Remedial reading

I said I was going to back off on posts about the Beck plan for a while, but I thought I needed a follow-up after yesterday's post. It was obvious to me when I reread it later that my head was not in the right place. I thought that I should acknowledge that.

I am in Stage 1 and I am supposed to be focusing on skill building right now. The whole point at this stage is to follow the checksheet and work on learning how to handle food more sanely. It is not supposed to be about counting calories and trying to lose. But because my weight has been bouncing around in the high 170s lately, I got all excited when I saw it dip down toward the 170 mark. Then when the inevitable upward fluctuation happened, it hurt. As I've written here many times before, I need to focus on my behaviors and the results will take care of themselves.

Thanks for all the support and comments. I'm going to see if I can squeeze into the Friday Spinning class, which I'm not signed up for but can do if there's an empty bike.

  1. I have been keeping up with your blog for the last several months and I just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you are! I'm a newer Weight Watcher (I started back in June) and you seem to realy have your head/heart in the right place!

    What a great reminder to "focus on the behaviors and the rest will take care of themselves".

    Keep up the great blogging!
