Yesterday was the weigh-in for week 2. Total pounds lost - 16.
Even though I KNOW that 16 pounds is a fantastic amount of weight to lose in two weeks, my brain still tries to convince me that 16 pounds is just a tiny, insignificant drop in the massively large bucket of weight that needs go. So until next weigh in, every time I feel as if my progress isn’t significant, I will think about how much lighter I would feel if I had to carry that dog around all of the time and how thankful I would be to get to put it down (and by put it down, I don’t mean euthanize - I just mean literally setting it down). :-)
Maybe it’s not the most conventional motivator, but at this point we’ve got to do whatever works, right!?
