Hi, I'm Dr. Judith Beck, the author of "The Beck Diet Solution
Are you feeling discouraged and down about dieting? It's easy to go from discouragement to abandoning your diet altogether, so I'd like to suggest something for you to do.
First, it doesn't matter if you're discouraged because you strayed from your diet, because the scale went up, or because dieting just seems too hard.
To deal with your discouragement, you do the same thing. You think about what you'd say to your best friend if she were in the same situation.
First, I bet you'd have compassion for her. You'd probably say something like, "I'm sorry you're discouraged. But I don't want you to let this get you down! You're a wonderful personno matter what
. And what the scale says is irrelevant to who you are."
