LED's Beck Diet Solution Diary!
Well, I'm back, again, after a few more months of faff... this time armed both with my trusty Beck Diet Solution and also the Workbook to go with it! I used the book alongside Exante in 2011 and lost around 4 stone - unfortunately fell spectacularly off the wagon and am back more or less where I started now. A few restarts along the way, but never started a new diary and never made it past a week or two! So this time round I'm starting a new diary to give myself a boost and a bit of extra commitment. My plan is to use this to work through the Beck steps, keep myself motivated and chart my success! :D
So, day 4 today, have been having a mix of S&S packs, Exante shakes and protein/ veg meals... haven't really be taking it 100% seriously and have had a few slips already, so this diary is to focus my mind! Am planning to do 8 weeks to begin with, with the aim of losing 2.5 stone to get back to the weight I was before I had my DS... then it's time to start TTC a little brother or sister for him :) Hoping this will give me the motivation I need!
So, step 1 of Beck - review my motivation for losing weight!
- Most importantly, I want to get pregnant easily, have a healthy pregnancy and not have all the added complications of having a BMI 30+! Also last pregnancy I had SPD which I'm sure my weight didn't help with, so hoping to minimise that if I can
- DS is nearly three and a really active boy - losing weight means I'll be able to keep up with him, chase him around, go down slides and through the soft-play tunnels without getting out of puff! At the moment even getting up off the floor is a struggle!
- Feel, look and dress younger - middle age is a long way away but it doesn't feel it sometimes!
- Make my family proud - I never wanted to be the "fat mum" whose kids get teased... have a year til DS starts school so time to get on with it!
OK, that's Beck Step 1 done, with a list to re-read daily and add to whenever I think of more reasons I want to lose weight. Plan for today - shake for breakfast (with coffee, yum), porridge for lunch, chilli and broccoli for dinner, choc shake with peppermint tea (double yum!) for afters. 30 min walk with DH and DS this afternoon, lots of water and an early night... mega-motivated today!
