What say you?

I rarely talk about my weight loss journey here on this blog, but I wanted to share this with you all. It helped put things into perspective for me. What say you?
Hello, do you know me?

If you don't, you should.

I'm a pound of fat, And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.

Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me; I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!

Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.

So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.

Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.

That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.

Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.

So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."(As if that were such a terrible thing.)

For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.

And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you. Happy Days!!!

After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

Some (no Lots) of his friends LOVE me. Oh well, everytime I get rid of them, they find their way back. I guess I'm just too friendly of a person :)
I'm not that good at this computer stuff. I may be able to check from time to time.
Good to hear from you

Hey! this weeks prenatal appointment I gained less than a pound! It was also early in the morning and I didn't have a ton to eat. I need to do this more often before my appointments!
