I probably struggle most with the feeling overburdened trap. It seems like the easiest thing to let go of (focusing on healthy eating) when life gets stressful. I get the don't want tos I've got them today, so this was a great section to read today. I have to remember that either way I will be burdened- either I stay a healthy weight or have the consequences of being unhealthy (overweight).

emoticon staying in the moment and do our best is a very helpful attitude.
It is possible to spend hours regretting what we did / didn't in the past, and worrying about how we can keep it up in the long run, but actually none of that helps staying n track today, or in the future.

I think this chapter will be the most valuable for me. I like that it focusing on remembering that the difficult times were much shorter than the times your actually struggled. I also find great value in remembering to stay in the moment and not trying to figure out how you will maintain things long term. Take it minute by minute!

All of these traps used to trip me up at different times in the past. Last summer the "overburdened, tired of making good choices" trap was sabotaging me. Fortunately this blue book along with the Pink Beck book study got my attention and helped me to get past this trap.

Lately the "feeling deprived" trap was resonating with me after allowing myself limited but still more than usual, holiday treats. I was having a hard time accepting that I must buckle down to the occasional planned treat to avoid weight creep.

After reading this lesson I went through and cleared the house of overly tempting, addictive type food gifts and along with other ongoing strategies I have been on track all week. emoticon There are so many "small habits" and changes that I have adopted to make weight loss/maintenance more manageable and more easily doable.

A few changes from Beck that are really helpful are: weighing and recording my weight daily, reading my ARC cards and making new targeted ARC cards occasionally. Writing out an Escape Plan for upcoming challenges is the bomb in my Beck tweaks. emoticon

Thank you Kriszta. I have enjoyed this study and it has been very helpful.

****************Week 9: 14-20 January 2019 ****************
Chapter 9: PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAPS

This is the last chapter in this group reading!

What are you thinking? Does any of these traps resonate with you?
Please share here!

#1: The Discouragement Trap - you want to give up when dieting becomes difficult.
#2: The Deprivation Trap - you feel resentful for having to restrict what you eat.
#3: The No Willpower Trap - you believe you can't resist overeating.
#4: The Feeling Overburdened Trap - you get tired of focusing on and putting effort into weight loss.
#5: The "I Don't Care" Trap - momentary feelings of apathy sap your motivation.
