If I only lose a little, I remember to think, "That's 1 (or 2, 3, or 4, whatever) stick of butter off!" 2 pounds lost would be two boxes or pounds of butter off and so on... 5 pounds? Visualize a 5 pound bag of flour off my body....
Great visualisation ideas. My coach has that plastic representation of 5lbs of fat sitting on her desk. It's pretty heavy when you pick it up and it looks yucky. The other day, she told me to pick it up ( I was in the middle of a good, woah is me moment) and reminded me of the fact that I had lost over 8 of these. Pretty inspiring.
