Big Weight Loss Goals

This Sparked Me!

It's easy to get discouraged if you look at how far you have to go. If you have 50 lbs to lose, look at it as you have 1 lbs to lose 50 times. If you look at the big picture, it is so immense that it is easy to put off. Focusing on losing that 1 lb puts your effort in the here and now, not someday. Anyone can lose a pound. Once you lose that one, move on to the next.
