The Slowest Loser
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!
