This week - 1 pound again.
Just as I was getting comfortable losing one pound a week, I had something happen that shook my ability to celebrate.
I cheated this week. No, not with food - with the scale.
On Thursday it said I had lost two pounds, on Friday it said I had lost three! Let me tell you how excited I was to have lost three pounds. I couldn't wait to get on today and then enter that three pound loss, but of course, I went back up and now I've only lost one.
I try very hard not to focus on the scale. I do believe that the numbers will eventually work out, so I try to look at all the other non-scale victories I have.
I do have an explanation for this fluctuation: I was sick earlier in the week. I ate very little other than soup for two days, not to mention that I eliminated anything I had eaten days before rather quickly (sorry that's probably tmi.) I guess I'm just getting back to normal.
In honor of losing one pound this week, I'm posting the one pound anthem again.
It's not mine and I don't remember where I got it. I think I copied/pasted it from a group I was in at one point.
So here's to you little pound, buh-bye!
Onward we go...
***Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should. I'm one pound of fat, and I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why? It's because no one ever want to lose me; I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but 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, thirty or even more pounds in weight. Yes, its 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."
(As if that were such a terrible thing.)
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 hips and every part of you.
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!
