I "thought" last Wednesday I was going to re-read and apply "The Beck Diet Solution" again, but like we often do in our lives I "let go" and got wrapped up in lots of other things and decided I'd get to it later in the week.
Well here I am sitting at my computer again on a Sunday morning and I'm really ready to do a Beck Diet Solution deja' vu.
I'm not surprised, and I'm not upset, but not only was this the first week that I didn't lose weight, it was the first week that the scale reversed itself, or to be honest, I should say that "I reversed myself" and the scale followed suit.
Truth be told, last week I wasn't following what Dr. Beck has taught me so far. And I also think part of the reason I "let go" of following her advice was my old habit of basking in my weight loss success "knowing" that I could "afford" a few LBS.
Make Your Advantages Response Card
I re-read my old Advantages Response Card and everything I wrote was vaild, but I decided that this time I wanted to be more passionate and declarative with what I was writing on my cards.
Yes I will really enjoy being able to fit into new clothes and all of the many other obvious things we really enjoy when we lose weight, but for me I think I need less reasons listed and a more passionate reason listed. So decided to combine and enhance my core advantages and reasons for losing weight as an affirmation in the present tense on what I'm doing vs. wanting.
The "PASSIONATE" Reasons + Actions I'm Losing Weight Now!
- Because I know that every day, every meal, every exercise and especially every "thought" is an opportunity to transform my body into an amazing example of physical fitness, vibrancy and health. Every day I am making great progress to fuel my metabolism to nurture and support a 175LB body. And in doing so I will look better and I will feel better about myself as I'll be "walking my talk" to myself, my family and all of the people that I intend to help achieve their weight loss, exercise and wellness goals.
