Challenge Update

Well for this weeks challenge over at Tales from the Scales, I lost 1/2 pound. I am not complaining. That only leaves eight pounds to go. I had a non scale victory this past week as well. I went to the doctor for a physical (yes this was a result of all of the recent cancer diagnoses), and she was impressed with my recent weight loss as well as my maintenance of my previous weight loss. It is always a confidence booster for a health professional to be impressed.
***update*** I just got a call from the doctor's office and the results of all of my labwork was "very normal". I really like being normal.

I have still been reading The Beck Diet Solution. As I get farther into it, I can recognize several things I have done that have made my journey a success this time while I wasn't really conscious of them at the time. However, reading them has made me more conscious and has really reinforced those ideas. Everything from being accountable to a coach to tracking what I eat to simply knowing that it is OK to feel hungry at times.

I'm right there with you on weight--only 1/2 pound this week. But we are both getting close to our goal, and the closer we get to our ideal weight, the more slowly that weight is going to come off. So I'm not discouraged--don't you be either!

I'd be interested to hear the things you've learned from the Beck Diet book...or maybe you'd just say I should read it myself. :)

I'm a HUGE Beck Diet Solution fan! I've even blogged about it. I'm so glad it's helping. It's definitely helping me too. The whole "not panicking when I feel a tad hungry" thing is a big issue for me. I'm also finding it helpful to read over my resource cards to remind myself why I want to lose weight. Congratulations!
