Today Chris & I were walking around Wal Mart waiting for my car to get finished in the automotive department. We were walking in the sporting goods department and passed the dumbbells. I handed Chris two 20 lb. dumbbells and I picked up a 25 lb. dumbbell. I said “This feels heavy! This is how much weight we’ve lost!”. It was really amazing how heavy the weight that we both have lost feels when you’re holding it in your hands. Spread out over a few months, that much weight doesn’t seem like much. The next time you’re discouraged at how much you’ve lost, go to your nearest sporting goods store, Wal Mart, or gym and just hold the weight you’ve lost, even if it’s just 1 lb. You’ll be shocked that the weight you’re holding used to be on you!
