Motivation At The Grocery Store


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I feel discouraged because I'm not loosing quickly enough, I go to the grocery store and put in my cart 1 pound of butter for each pound I've lost so far. When I see how much butter I end up with, I realize that I shouldn't think of how much I still have to loose, but how much I've lost!

PS: Bags of potatoes also do the trick!

    I like this idea, then you realize how much you HAVE lost. Of course people will look at you and wonder why you have so much butter in your cart.

    I've never thought about weight loss like this, but I think it's a great idea! :)
