Default 20lbs = Confidence ... Who knew?

I can't believe the confidence I have gained in losing 20lbs. I am still huge, of course, but I feel like I am walking on top of the world. I guess that is my reward to myself .

Wish my scale and Wii agreed on weight. The Wii gives me a pound and half advantage - but I record the scaled weight. The Wii put me in Twoterville this morning.

Yep- those first 20 lbs. makes a HUGE difference in the way you feel about your plan. Anyone can diet for a week or so and drop a few pounds, but that doesn't mean they're committed to it. Once you've lost TWENTY pounds, though, it's a big deal.

Twenty pounds means you've gotten past that initial shock of changing your eating plan. Twenty pounds usually means you're mentally ready for the long hull, and that you're committed and motivated to keep on track.

Good job and congratulations! I remember that my 20 lb. loss felt more significant to me. Now, here I am at 40 lost and I'm still truckin'. Soon, you'll be so into your routine that the weight will seem like it's melting off! Good luck in your continued success!!! :-)

You know, with every pound we lose, we lose double that amount in emotional weight! We feel lighter in spirit as well as in body.
Congratulations to you on your terrific 20 pound loss!

Woo hoo!!! Congrats

I've also lost 20 pounds and am starting to feel a little more confident. I think, for me at least, it's less about how we look and more about starting to feel like we're really doing this—like things are finally changing and we're not stuck in these fat bodies forever!
