I came across this cute little poem today and I thought it was cute so I wanted to share it.....

Only One Pound

Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat,
And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
Happy Days!!!
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

With that being said I think it is very imprtant to remeber that any little bit we lose is a step in the right direction no matter how big or small the loss is. A pound is a pound and they all add up! I am starting my weight loss battle after more than a year of ups and downs and I am determined to do this no matter how long it takes me. I am excited to see where this journey leads me and I am happy to be doing it with all of you.

    So funny because my status is I only lost one pound this week. ha ha! However I will be happy if I could love 1 pound every week for the next year. That would help me reach my goal and be in target weight.
