Wow, this was a very good and thought provoking thread! We all get despondant if we 'only' lose a pound, especially being on diets like CD. It can seem like a lot of hard work and sacrifice for what seems a small weight loss. I would like to join in with your way of thinking and post this verse for you.......if I may xxxx
Only A Pound
Hello. 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 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 me, that is until I've grown to ten, twenty 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 it's such a terrible thing!
For you see, if you do this you'll encourage others to keep me hanging around because they will think I'm not worth losing.
And as i love being around you, around your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
Happy days!!! After all, I'm only one pound of fat!!!!
This made me laugh but it is also very, very poignant to many of us I think!__________________
