i LOVE this poem! i read it once a week, to keep myself motivated.
i thought i'd share it with you... maybe it'll keep YOU motivated too!
"only one pound", author unknown
hello! do you know me? if you don't, you should. i'm ONE POUND of fat! and i am the happiest pound of fat, that you would ever want to meet! do you want to know why?
it's because no one ever wants to lose me! i'm ONLY one pound, just a pound! everyone wants to lose five, ten, fifteen pounds... never ONLY one!
so i just stick around and happily, keep you fat! then i add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it. that is, until i've grown to ten, twenty, or even fifty pounds in weight... yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND of fat, left to do as i please.
so when you weigh in, keep right on saying... "oh, i only lost ONE pound..." for you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think i'm not worth losing.
and i LOVE being around you...your arms, your legs, your chin, your stomach, your lovehandles, your back... EVERY part of you!
Hey!! I just wanted to say you look AMAZING girl!! I just started doing P90X and found your page doing some searching about people's results from the workout... and oh my goodness am I impressed! Seeing results like yours makes me want to stick with it.. cuz WOW that plyometrics is some intense stuff, and it almost had me saying "just throw in the towel.." Not after what I've seen here. Thanks so much for the motivation and inspiration!! Keep up the hard work!! 1998 days ago
