20 sticks of butter
I have lost almost 5 pounds so far this month/year. Taking it one week at a time seems to be doing rather well so I will continue doing things that way and hopefully in the end that 5 pounds will begin to multiply. Sometimes thinking that it is only 5 pounds and knowing how much I really need to loose can get me down so I developed this imaging technique. When you buy a box of butter it generally comes in 1 pound boxes split into 4 sticks. So for each pound I loose I am technically loosing 4 sticks of butter right? So by loosing 5 pounds I have in essence lost 20 sticks of butter. I then picture myself with all of those sticks of butter taped to my body in various places. It really helps me realize how much of an accomplishment 5 pound really is. My goal...adding another 10 sticks to that image...one week at a time.
