Small Losses Are Big!!

This Sparked Me!

think of small losses in terms of sticks of butter. one stick is 1/4 pound. where do you want that hanging? under your chin? arm? thigh? belly?
think of it this way and even 1/4 pound is a huge loss!! as it should be!!

    That is such a great analogy, I sometimes get down when I am not losing 2-3 lbs a week, AWESOME

    I love this one. Alsways looking for the single big loss that would change my life. When that didn't happen fast fast fast- I gave up. This time I'm moving slowy, sometimes imperceptably.

    any loss is better than a gain. gaining is what we were all doing before we came here!
