    People usually complain when they've only lost a pound. So here's a picture showing what a pound of fat looks like:

    I couldn't see the picture but I have seen the 2lb of fat that we have at our group and it's not very nice. You are right though, it puts it into perspective

    Hey 1lb is soooooooooooo much even 1/2lb is alot when you look at the picture.
    I think this is a excellent post because we can show this to people even those who are daunted by just 1/2lb loss.
    Well done!

    TBH after so long I am happy with ANY loss whether it's half a pound or half a stone. As long as I don't put any on I am happy with it

    Good idea Rainbow. I stopped myself from saying I only lost a pound this week as it was making feel as if I had failed in someway. No it was an achievement as two packs of butter on my tummy would make my jeans look lumpy.
