I just read an article about losing that pesky last 5 pounds. They included all kinds of great tips on how to finally cross the finish line. I did what I always do when faced with these articles, got depressed. And then it hit me! I have been doing this all wrong, I have been trying to lose the first 5 pounds. How crazy!!
I am convinced I must change my strategy to "start" with the last 5 pounds.
Because I am a professional dieter...I know we are supposed to lose weight in increments. We shouldn't think about the whole number, but set manageable goals.
So isn't this a brilliant goal? Starting with the last 5 pounds, which seems to be such a burden and the hardest.
I know, right?
I am totally on to something, and I can form a kind of a solidarity with all my successful dieter friends. I no longer have to simply chat about diets with my heavier friends. I can commiserate with my thin friends about the burden of trying to lose the last 5 pounds. The influence of being a part of the successful loser groups as opposed to the struggling loser groups is mentally
fulfilling. I usually start a diet thinking I won't win. This way I begin as a winner...I am only 5 pounds away from my goal!! I love it!!
|Evidently you can lose weight in pounds or kg's|
how much is a kg?
It's 2 weeks until my birthday and as a gift to me I am going to lose those last 5 pesky, pounds.
Then I will lose the last 10 pounds.....
Then the last 15 pounds!!
I can't find one for the last 20, or 30, or 40.....I will just wing it from there.
