I've been a serial dieter for twenty years. I have gained and lost countless pounds. I know what to eat and as a former athlete, I actually like to exercise. But somehow, I am unable to make my weight loss permanent.
I've come to realize that food will always be an issue for me. I've also realized that many people don't struggle with food like I do. Why do I struggle and others don't? Is my brain and thinking the key to solving my food and weight problems?
I discovered The Beck Diet Solution by Judith Beck when reading Emily Yoffe’s Dear Prudence column. Beck’s book applies the principle of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to change behavior.
When I first started blogging, my intention was to write my way through the Beck Diet Solution tasks in hope of transforming my fat thinking into thin thinking. While the concepts in her book made sense, I decided that I needed to find my own cognitive therapist for help.
This blog is my way of documenting what I have learned from therapy, my successes and setbacks and of course, to answer the question of whether or not thinking thinner will get me thinner.
