Saying bye bye to yet another pound :D

Saying bye bye to yet another pound :D

Saying bye bye to another pound at this morning's weigh in :D Having mixed feelings about it though: feeling good that it's not a gain, but still feeling a bit underwhelmed that the loss wasn't greater. I don't like it when I have mixed feelings as it usually results in me over-eating........must find my happy place and quick!!!

On the positive side I've only got 15 more pounds to lose till I reach my goal :D :D

Well done! There is a really cute poem about losing 1lb:

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 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 will 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!!!

Good luck in losing your last 15lbs - you must be feeling great :-)


Thank you. I've lost 16lb so far. Doing it in stages, so 15 to lose till I reach my next goal. Overall I need to lose another 26lbs and I'll have reached my target ;) Feels great already, really enjoying the new healthy living/eating lifestyle :)


What a fantastic poem. You should get that published.


Well done. Keep it going.


Thank you, no turning back for me! ;)


I know exactly how you feel that's happened to me twice now. Last week I only lost a pound and it panicked me as I was staying with my parents who are both overweight like me and although they are supportive I was worried that bejng around them would make me more likely to slip off the wagon and eat too much.

I rectified this by taking my weightwatchers cook books with me and offering to cook all the evening meals that week. Thankfully I'm back to my usual 2lbs this week which means I've now lost 3st. My mum even left me a message to say she was missing my cooking and that she'd lost 2lbs too which I'm dead chuffes with as I don't get many compliments about my cooking!

Well done on only having 15lbs to go. 1lb may seem only small but think back to all the other 1lbs you've lost. They all add up and it's a pound less that you've got to loose.


Don't be so hard on yourself. A few times I only lost 300g at the weekly weigh in but it's still a loss. Stick with it
