If your feeling discouraged at slower paced weight loss?
Not happy losing 1-2 pounds a week?

REMEMBER! You are losing actual fat and not water. I fill one pound sand bags and keep them displayed where I will notice and remember and celebrate these victories.

One pound of fat is one pound of FAT GONE!!

Be encouraged! Stay strong!

God Bless emoticon

When I'm down I lift them up and carry them around for a moment or two and they are actually heavy. A great reminder that the FAT IS GONE! emoticon

    I used to go on diets and lose 8-10 lbs a week. Once I stopped it always came back plus some. Now that I've been smart about weight loss, I've only lost 1-2 a week, but I don't feel like I'm starving myself and not waiting till I'm off my diet.

    That's a great tip. You have the visual as well as being able to pick up one pound and feeling just how significant it is. emoticon
