Today I bought a huge block of lard/fat from the meat section in the grocery store. It's huge, and I thought it had to weigh a lot when I saw it, but wowzers..it's only 2.80 lbs! It measures 9 inches by 4 inches, and it's not in a nice shaped rectangle. It looks like a big huge blob of crud. Anyway, I bought it so I can be reminded...and encouraged..by the absolute big grossness of it. It reminds me of what I need to do, and it encourages me when I've dropped a couple pounds. I can SEE it...and the visual of this cheap piece of lard is priceless. I give soooo much credit to every single one of the people on Spark who have lost many times more than this 2.80 pounds of fat, they have worked so hard! And I encourage those who lament that they 'only' lost a couple pounds...it's HUGE! Really it is so much more than the two little dash marks on the scale. Please feel good about it, in fact feel wonderful...so wonderful that you keep it up! All of us who are working hard to lose this stuff...we just need to keep on keepin' on.
xoxo to all!
