Try Lifting Potatoes

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Okay, so far I have lost 20 pounds. But I was SO proud when I hit the 20 pound loss that I headed for the grocery store. No, not for grocery shopping. I wanted to remind myself of how it had felt to carry around an extra 20 pounds. I went straight to the vegetables and picked up two 10-lb bags of potatoes. Wow!! A real eye opener on just how heavy that extra 20 pounds had been. No wonder I'm feeling SO much lighter already. LOL...

    emoticon 20 lbs. is a lot of weight. Congratulations on getting rid of all that excess weight. I can see where not having to carry that extra weight around frees up energy for other things. And having the image of 2 10-lb. potato bags makes it real. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    This is a great idea! It's important to remind ourselves of how far we've come so that we can stay motivated to continue. Great job on the 20lb milestone!

    That was good!, but potatoes are good eating too ;-)
    Congratulation on the 20lb, by now it should really starting showing. You are really moving a long.

    Here is your double emoticon emoticon for each 10lb.

    That is an awesome idea. I always try to visualize pounds loss in the sticks of butter off my body - 10# = 40 sticks of butter melted away. But next time I'm in the store I'm going to pick up a 10# sack of potatoes for a real wake up call. Thanks for the idea.

    Funny I was just talking about this with my boyfriend last night! I told him about picking up a 10 lb bag of potatoes and that I had lost 5 of them, he said wow that is a great comparison! It really does put it into perspective huh? Congrats on your weight loss and new healthy lifestyle!
