Journal your way to Bright Lines

For years, I have followed Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson and Bright Line Eating. “Bright Line Eating (BLE) is a scientifically grounded program that teaches you a simple process for getting your brain on board so you can finally live Happy, Thin, and Free™. The core principles of BLE are Bright Lines—clear, unambiguous boundaries we don’t cross just like a non-smoker doesn’t smoke, no matter what. The four Bright Lines are: Sugar, Flour, Meals, and Quantities.” In her book “Bright Line Eating“, Dr. Thompson outlines tools that make BLE work. Journaling is a critical component of BLE success., a digital journal is the perfect tool for supporting your BLE journey. CaseKeepers allows you to efficiently create journal entries from your laptop or mobile device. Text, images, photos, videos, documents and even audio recordings may be attached to any journal entry. It supports tags so that you may quickly find journal entries at any time. Your entire Bright Line Eating journey can be managed from your mobile device helping you to be more successful with your weight loss.

Plan and track your daily food and water

One of the keys to Bright Line Eating is to plan your three meals a day in advance and then eat only what you have planned. Many users like to attach photos of their meals.

Read SOMEthing Uplifting

Often the words of others help keep us motivated. Each day, log your favorite inspirational quote in your CaseKeepers journal. By tagging them as Inspirational, you will be able to quickly locate all your favorite quotes and readings. Add your own thoughts on the reading in the journal entry.

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” — Theodore Roosevelt

play the glad game and express your Gratitude

Every night, create a gratitude list. Like in the Disney movie, Pollyanna, playing the “glad game” is a great way to help us find happiness. Research show shows that there are many health benefits to expressing gratitude. According to PositivePsychology, “It reduces stress, increases optimism and changes your brain. “

Emergency Action Plan and other references

BLE recommends keeping a list of 5-10 things that you can try when you are feeling low on willpower and having trouble keeping your lines bright. CaseKeepers is a great place to store your Emergency Action Plan. You may also wish to store other support information such as a list of BLE-friendly meals at your favorite restaurants or an image of the BLE food plan. CaseKeepers is a great place to journal and store everything BLE.
