Most inspirational comment ever.... Thanks Lori!

So earlier today I was complaining and whining about only losing one pound. I was discouraged because I worked so hard... All day I have just been BLAH!! I ate 2 oreo's ) double stuff- 4 points a little while ago and was thinking- who cares- it won't matter... then I read my comments and got the best bit of inspiration from Lori at What I'm Eating and No Pink Weights and I fell much better- even proud of my 1 pound loss! Thanks Lori- you are the best!

Well here is what she left for me....

"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!!!"

Isn't that great? One pound is onederful!!!


  1. Is it ok if I share this with my Weight Watchers group? This is indeed wonderful.

  2. Sure- I am doing the same thing on Friday- I really thought this was great! Made me feel so much better. I love getting comments but this one was really thoughtful!
