So- I hit a bit of a plateau and was feeling a little bummed out that I didn't really lose any weight last week. In fact, even thought I'm doing a low carb diet and was pretty dang strict for the last 2 weeks, the result was only about a pound a week.
I've lost about 10 lbs. since I started trying to get back into shape this year. And after it slowed down for the past two weeks, I started wondering what a pound of fat really looks like.
Wowza! It looks like this:
Are you kidding me! The size of coffee mug! I've lost 10 coffee mugs!
That's crazy! I will never look down at the scale and be upset by a 1 lb. weight loss again. Everytime I have a cup of coffee, I'm going to look and it and think about how many of those I'm shedding.
I'm also a little freaked out by how many extra lbs. I've been carrying around with me all of these years. I can't wait to lose 1 more!
