How Much Does Your Weight Loss Weigh?

This Sparked Me!

Every time you lose weight (in increments of 5 pounds), go to the sporting goods department and actually LIFT the amount of weight you lost. It's extremely motivating! I had a hard time picking up the 25lb weight, let alone 50lbs! :)

    I heat my house with wood pellets and try to carry two bags (80 pounds total and my total weight lost) and have no clue how I could have carried that much weight around before. I tell my folks to lift common household products too, like a jug of milk, sack of flour, etc to put into perspective their weight loss. Thanks for the tip!
