Default Weight loss is a thing to celebrate no matter how small it is.

It doesn't matter if I step on the scale and see a 2-3 lb loss or a 1 lb loss, I still do a happy dance and sing every time. I think my family thinks I'm crazy.




P.S.
I'm down one more pound!

It's like finding pennies. Eventually they'll add up to something.

And to think some people will pick up pennies only if they're on heads. I don't care if they're on heads, tails or on their side or even bent. I'll pick them all up.

I agree as well! Every pound lost is a fantastic achievement. It's not easy to lose weight, and we should definitely be proud of ourselves for every bit we are able to lose, not just for achieving goals.

Me Too!!! It's been almost 30 days and I"ve been staying OP every meal and not a thing changed, I was getting so discouraged. The consultants kept asking me if it had taken any BLT's (bites, licks, tastes) everytime I went in for WI. I was getting tired of saying no - =( believe me, please. It finally started to decline on Sunday - I'm so EXCITED. I will go to any lengths - to stay OP & eat healthy. Thanks for being here.

I always try to remember that one pound is like four sticks of butter. Any loss is a celebration.

I must admit it's somtimes hard to be willing to accept that scale number when you really think you deserve a different number than is on the scale. It's all part of the process, I think.

Every time I hear that I think it sounds so gross! But then I think about the fact that I have about 520 sticks of butter that I want to lose.
But so far I have lost 60 sticks of butter, that's about 45 bucks.

Thanks, Beverlyjoy, for the great reminder! I sometimes get *a little* disappointed if my loss is 0.25 lbs...but from now on I'll just tell myself that "I lost a stick of butter" and that is an accomplishment and DOES count for something!!
