Weight loss, as a number, is not a tangible goal. Weight loss as an object in your hand is much more exciting!
- Have you ever tried to lose weight?
- Do you know what 10, 20, or 30 pounds feels like?
Why think of weight loss like this? Because most of us have carried groceries at some point in our life.
Carrying a gallon of milk or orange juice can be quite a challenge. An 8 pound gallon is heavy! It feels good to put it on the counter top and go back to your car for the much lighter cereal boxes!

Knowing what weight loss FEELS like (setting down the gallon) can motivate you to lose the weight much more than a number on paper or on a scale! FEEL the weight loss and make it happen!
