At my weigh in this last week, I had lost one more pound..Now sometimes when I lose only a pound, I am frustrated, disappointed, and a little sad, however after I read this letter, I am going to be shouting Praises with one pound gone.. I shared this with my TOPS( Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) and it was a real eye opener to all of us.. I hope that after reading it you will be thrilled when that pound leaves your body..:)
This is a letter from one pound of fat...
Hello Sparkteam member,
Do you know me? If you don't you should. I'm a pound of fat, and I'm the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why?
It's because no one ever want to lose me. I'm only one pound , just a pound of fat.
Everyone one wants to lose 3, 5, 10, 15 pounds, but never only one pound. So, I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then, I add myself ever so slyly, so that ou never seem to notice it, that is, until I've grown to 10, 20, 30, or even more pounds in weight. Yes, it's fun being just a pound of fat, left to do as I please.
So, when yo weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound." ( as if that were such a terrible thing). For you seee, if you do this, you will encourage your fellow members to keep me around because they will think 'm not worth losing. And, I love being around you, your arms, legs, chin, hips, thighs, and every part of your body. For you see," I'm only one pound of fat"!!!
(This is what one pound of fat looks like..compared to a coffee cup)
I hope all of you will join me with excitement as we lose these pounds of fat one pound at a time..
Hugs and Prayers,
