    I was having a nosey through quite a few of the threads the other week and came accross the Very Inspirational Poem about 1 pound. I was telling my Auntie about it and she'd really like to read it.

    I've done a search for it bit can't seem to find it. I think it may have been in a thread in this section.

    Can anyone help :sign0009:

    It's OK. I opened my eyes and found it!!

    It's on the Bloody Pound thread - that's not obvious at all. lol.

    Any chance we can have it as a sticky? I think it's really good and spurs you on!

    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 it, 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 that were such a terrible thing!)

    For you see, if you do this you'll encourage others to keep me around because they will 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. Happy Days!!

    After all, I'm Only One Pound of fat!!!

    Aaawwww thanks Linda!

    :scale: I had to jump on and off a few times to make sure the scales where working right!

    I am pleased as I am still on the wagon and clothes starting to feel loose again which is a huge relief.:)

    1lb a week for a year is 3 stone 12lb!!

    Good luck everyone, keep losing that 1lb!!
