Hello 42 lbs lighter

Friday, May 07, 2010

I hadn't realized how much work I have put into my lifestyle changes until my mentor said to me? Why don't you go to the Grocery store and pick up 40 lbs of potatoes, feel how much weight you actually took off your body, bones, etc.

I hadn't really thought about it that weigh (no pun intended) But it really puts things in perspective if you lose one pound, go take a look at a pound of butter, then pat yourself on the back for losing that much...

    That's an excellent idea, and congratulations on losing 40 pounds! I keep a five-pound sack of sugar in my bathroom and pick it up every morning. Five pounds sounds like such a small amount compared to what I want to lose. However, when I pick that sack up, it doesn't seem like such an insignificant amount and I am motivated to keep it off. Keep up the good work!
