Default Paper towel analogy

Stumbled upon this link in another section of 3FC and thought it might be encouraging for all of us over here in IP. Hope this isn't a duplicate post.

I've been really struggling this week with the fact that I've lost 17lbs and there is no difference in my appearance whatsoever. This helped a bit.

The article doesn't take into consideration that losing 1 pound is a lot harder when you are leaner though. 1 pound doesn't make much difference when you are 300 pounds, but when you are 130 pounds, it does, but it's harder to lose. But anyways, it's a good article about perseverance.

Good article. Thank you for sharing. Definitely helps to know why there is not much change in appearance.
