    This is a great poem.... alot of people complain about only losing a 1lbs but I think a loss is a loss [​IMG]

    Only One Pound of Fat

    Hello! Do you know me?
    If you don’t, you should.
    I’m a pound of fat.
    And I am 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, thirty 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’ll 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.
    After all, I’m only one pound of fat!!!

    I have just printed this and will put it in my purse. Sad I know but will remind me of the 'one pound of fat' that I have been losing on average since I started in June...these 'one pound of fat' now adds up to '31 pounds of fat' I have lost......
    Thanks
    xx
