SparkCoach Challenge: Visualize Weight Loss

Friday, June 14, 2013

I've lost about this much:

These are 40-pound bags of rock salt. I know how hard it is to haul these from the store to the car and from the car to the basement. Hard to believe I used to haul the equivalent of BOTH of these bags around on my carcass every day.

    I had that same thought today. I was doing laps at the airport probably carrying 40 pounds of backpack materials as I walked. I thought Ok..this is harder with this extra weight. Then I reflected that I would have been walking with 5 20 pounds of potatoes in the past. I am so much happier traveling thin.

Good for you maintaining and doing a great job.

    Very effective reminder -- I've lost about the same amount and I tend to think of it as dog chow bags . . .not only are we no longer hauling it around, we're not pumping blood through it either!!

    That's awesome! I remember in WW learning to visualize what we'd lost as well. I lost a 50 lb bag of dog food. I also know how much it is to carry a bag of this size in and it is amazing that we used to carry that around with us everyday!

    That's a great way to think about it. Have you tried to pick up even one of these now and walk with it? When I decided to carry a set of weights up from the basement, I could really feel the difference. Whew!
