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.

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.
