That Pound of Weight Loss DOES Matter

Today was weigh in day and I lost another pound.  Some people may say “Oh, only a pound?”  That pound of weight loss does matter!

I get so frustrated when I hear someone say “But I only lost a pound this week.” Only a pound? I’m not sure why people look at one pound of weight loss as a bad thing.  For those of you that think this way let me encourage you to change your thinking.

The items below EACH weigh one pound.  I need visuals sometimes to remind myself of what I am accomplishing.

1 Pound


The poem below was included in an old Weight Watcher’s book of my grandma’s. It fits into my thinking perfectly.



Next time you find yourself depressed about losing a pound in one week. Think of the pictures above. That is a lot of weight to lose in a weeks time. That pound of weight loss does matter!
