Further to: Day 23 - The Beck Diet Solution

I received this comment from Tamara, on today's post.

Tamara said...
Strangely enough, this was one chapter I couldn't relate too. My frustration with weight loss is with myself for taking so darn long to do it! When I am really dieting (and not falling off and being dragged behind the wagon) I actually feel grateful. Grateful that I have the tools to lose the weight and reach my goal.      
I love this idea.  I have to admit, I've never thought of it that way, but it really is true. I should be grateful. I have tools, knowledge, community and family support and means - much more than many others have - to make this journey be successful for me.
Thanks for reminding me Tamara. I have made a response card to remind me of this everyday, and especially when I slip into victim mode.


  1. Isn't it great when someone else helps you to see things differently! Blogger land is so wonderful.

    You are doing really well with the Beck book.

  2. You're welcome! I'm glad to make a positive impact. We all bring so much to each other on this journey don't we? :)
