In case you’re wondering where I am…

Gone skiing. Be back Sunday with a long post and pictures.

  1. I hope you have a terrific time skiing.
    I also wanted to share with you something that I read in the Spring 2008 issue of Remedy magazine. It contained an article titled “Thinking Thinner” by Chrystle Fiedler about shedding pounds by harnessing the untapped power of your own mind. The technique is espoused by Judith Beck, PhD, director of the Beck Institute of Cognitive Therapy, etc., in Philadelphia and author of THE BECK DIET SOLUTION. The article explains how to train your mind to deal with self-sabotaging thoughts that side track your healthy eating.

    Step 1 is to write on index cards the specific reasons you want to lose weight. Step 2 is to read those reasons every morning. Carry the cards with you all day and glance at them throughout the day. Step 3 is to put motivating phrases on index cards that you also carry with you as a reminder about why you want to lose weight. Regarding cravings, you can write phrases like “this sensation is a craving. It is not a command.” You can list some distractions to divert your attention from the craving. The article says it’s empowering to discover you don’t have to give in to cravings – that cravings pass 100% of the time.

    Course, the article goes into more detail on how to do all of this and also talks about fitting exercise into your life. I’m anxious to give this method a try and will report on its success if anyone is interested.
