You’ve got to love that first pound that you lose when dieting. I call it the “Power of One” pound weight loss. its amazing and inspiring. Its a change. A delta of motion from where I used to be and where I am now. I don’t underestimate it – I glorify it. In fact, its safe to say – I might even worship it. The daily weighings, the countless calorie counts (pun intended) – waiting for victory but weighting with failure until…that one day. The pound loss has been achieved. I am motivated now. So much more than ever. I can achieve it. I will survive. Until the next pound.
