What's in half a pound?

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Success.... that's what!! I think I'm not alone in being one of the people who complain that "I've only lost half a pound!!" That being said, I've always struggled with weight loss and have really had the most success since I've been a Spark member. I could go on and on with accolades for Spark and all its members, but you all know where I stand on that. My point is simply stated in the picture. A half a pound IS a big deal. Even if it doesn't look like much when you weigh in once a week; it all adds up and before you know it you are well on your way to being the you that you want to be. Keep going.... Don't ever give up!! You will find your rainbow. emoticon

    This is something I need to remember... Progress is progress and it may not seem like much right now, but in the end it is a big deal!

    That is so true. My weight loss was so slow but slow and steady wins the race. :)

I look back and see 85 pounds gone... and still remember what it felt like at the beginning of my journey when I could only see the road stretching out far ahead.

Keep going because you will get there!

    My problem is figuring out how much, if anything I've really lost. My weight fluctuates about 2 pounds a day so if I get on the scale in the morning and think, "Great, I've lost 2 pounds!" I always wait to celebrate. Usually a few hours later it's back.

You're right though, even a small loss is progress and will add up over time. Slow weight loss is supposed to be easier to maintain and harder to put back on so I think I'd definitely celebrate if even a half pound a week "stuck"!
