What an AMAZING post!!!
I was one of those who scoffed at a 1lb weight loss. It seemed like so little! But you are RIGHT! I can't lose any of the weight, until I get rid of that ONE pound! One. At. A. Time.

You know what? I'm DONE with this pound!
Off it goes!!!

I wish I would've read that a week ago when I lost a pound and a half and was completely shattered because of it. Reading this probably would of made me feel better, because it's true. Thanks for sharing emoticon

I had another thought...what does one pound equal..? I had heard that one pound equals 4 sticks of butter. But I googled it and found some more....good visuals!
One pound equals:
4 sticks of butter
2 rolls of quarters (80 quarters)
1 can of any canned food
1 pint of water
1 average sized book

What else weighs "only" one pound?

That's awesome! I'm going to save that in my vision journal!! It's all so true, isn't it? Today I was one pound down, and disappointed that I wasn't down 2, which would have made my next goal...but I'm happy with that one pound now! Thanks!!

Hello! Do you know me?
If you don't, you should, I'm a pound of fat.
And I am the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me.
I'm only one pound, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
That is until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it's fun being only one pound of fat, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
(As if that were such a terrible thing)
For you see, if you do this you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
After all, I'm only one pound of fat!!!

That makes it seem better to lose "just" one pound, doesn't it?? Well, it's true - unless you lose that one pound you can't lose more. And if you keep losing one pound you will eventually be at your goal. So don't feel bad when you lose 1 pound - celebrate!!!
