Secrets of Success

One At A Time



If you have a lot of weight to lose, it can be overwhelming. Think about 1 lb at a time, 1 meal at a time, 1 step at a time, 1 day at a time. 1 is much easier to handle than 100!

  • What I found encouraging was - after I lost 5 pounds I mentioned it at work and a lady said - wow - you lost a sack of potatoes - I liked that - so then when I lost 10 - it was 2 - 5's or a 10 pound sack of potatoes and so on and so forth - relating it to something made it concrete. Then when I saw someone who weighed what I lost - that was really amazing. I said - I lost you! - by CALIDREAMER76
