Secrets of Success

Instant Gratification



Because I want instant weight loss, I weigh in first with all my clothes and coat on. Then I put down my purse. HA! 5 pound weight loss. Then off goes my coat. There goes some more!! Finally, there go the shoes (and if I'm wearing heavier clothing they go to). I get my instant gratification and feel good with my little psych out.

  • Love this and totally have done it. emoticon - by MSMITH491
  • Hilarious! - by FITMAY
  • This made me laugh, because I could totally see myself doing this at the gym for weigh-in, and then realize that there was someone behind me, watching my weight-loss strip-tease. - by ANITA_NM
  • It's amazing the mind games we play with ourselves. This sounds like something I would totally do. Losing weight really is a state of mind as well as discipline.
    We have to find ways to motivate ourselves and if this is one of them - awesome. :) - by HOPEFUL2DAY!
