Beyond Calories & Exercise: Eliminating Self-Defeating Behaviors is a new 5-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that “walks” readers through the process of replacing their self-defeating weight issues with healthy, positive, and productive life-style behaviors. It moves beyond the “burn more calories than you consume” concept to encompass the emotional aspects of eating and of gaining and losing weight. Through 16 included exercises, you will learn how to identify your self-defeating behaviors (SDBs), analyze and understand them, and then replace them with life-giving actions that lead to permanent behavioral change. Course #50-10 | 2013 | 49 pages | 35 posttest questions

Robert E. Hardy, EdD, received his doctorate degree from Western Michigan University where he was a Mott Foundation Scholar. Currently, he is a Minnesota-licensed psychologist. In 1991, he co-authored Self-Defeating Behaviors (Harper/Collins). The book remains in publication, and is considered the classic work on why/how individual’s repeat negative behaviors. In 1996, he co-authored The Self-Defeating Organization (Addison-Wesley). This book applied his models to eliminate self-defeating behaviors to teams, groups, and organizations. Dr. Hardy became a frequent speaker on self-defeating behaviors – and during this time his weight was over 300 pounds. Lecturing on his topic, and weighing that much became a “marketing nightmare.” Finally, he applied his behavioral change models to his own weight issues. His current weight is 165 pounds and he has maintained this weight for over ten years. This experience led him to author You Don’t Know How to Change (Amazon and Kindle, 2011). This book presents his educational model of change: individuals first learn the models, then they learn to apply the models, and the desired outcome is permanent behavioral change.
