Tuesday, February 05, 2013

When I went to my tops (taking off pounds sensibly) meeting this morning, I was only down 1/2 pound. I felt very ripped off as I felt I had exercised/eaten well and deserved more. Also, I'm surprised how long it's taking for the 4 1/2 lbs I managed to gain in 2 weeks over Christmas off. Note to self: Don't expect to lose the weight you put on in 2 weeks in 2 weeks!! Anyways, I had written to a friend online earlier this week that all the small losses really added up. Today at tops the lady I was sitting next to said that she used to go to another tops group where a woman there had 80 lbs to lose. Well, every week, she would lose a 1/2 lb or sometimes a bit more. Over time, that added up. So, I was thinking about it, and losing 1/2 lb a week every week for a year = 24 lbs. That would put me below my goal!

    Good for you Sharon, you are heading in the right direction. As you know, I totally feel what you are going through. We will fight through this and what a great way to put it, measured in sticks of butter. emoticon

    My sister always tells to count your weight loss in sticks of butter ...1/2 lb is two sticks!! It makes our small losses look like larger losses....and the main reason to lose is to get healthier...well you are 1/2 lb healthier!!! Congrats on your weight loss and keeping the positive attitude!!

    It is easy to gain but oh so hard to lose. 1/2 lbs a week is a great goal. You can do it.

  Think about what 1/2 pound of butter looks like. Better off than on, right? Keep up the good work.

    I love your attitude. emoticon
I'm with you,I am a profesional dieter and years ago I could easily lose 5kilos in a week(no problem).But now 500gs is a good loss for me.
As i've gotten older my body has changed and holds on more stubbornly to weight.
Don't give up sweety. I've lost 5 kilos so far so believe in yourself because emoticon
