A one pound weight loss sound so little but it is the building block of all losses. Just imagine you have lost a whole pound of butter around your waist. Now suddenly it is looking like a lot. Don't be deceived by the "only 1 pound" sigh. It is good losing one pound then another and still another. emoticon

Woo Hoo!

Yes! Now that is the right attitude! Celebrating leads to more success! Disappointment does not. It's all about the attitude.

Remember that other goals are important, too - not just weight goals. Celebrate all the things you accomplished this week. Every 10 minute workout, every food label read, is a victory in itself!

Great job!
Michael

So I lost 2.4 pounds my first week, which is great. But a small part of me wanted to be a little disappointed. I started to think, if I had eaten less or exercised more I could have lost more. But that's exactly the kind of thinking that got me to the place I am now, 100 pounds overweight. I caught myself before any more damage could be done. I decided to celebrate the 2.4 pounds. I stuck to my fastbreak goals and the 10 minute daily exercise challenge. These are small changes that I can handle and those small changes shed 2.4 pounds. This is something I can stick with. If I had this attitude a year and a half ago, being ok with 1-2 pounds of weight loss a week, I would be at my goal weight today. So I not only accept the 2.4 pounds, I celebrate them. Next week may only be a pound or even a half a pound, but that is alright with me. Half a pound loss is better than where I was before, gradually gaining weight.
