A pound a week...always a *great* loss rate...try not to forget that...that's 3500 calories down the pipe...step by step it goes...

And, while I'll echo what was said in another comment...sometimes, for purely motivational purposes, it'sOK to think ill of parts of your body...*as motivational*....I know I would, at times, develop a healthy distaste for my gut...which drove me into the gym...drove me for 'one more round' on the heavy bag...

But that's exercise motivation...for diet motivation, you sort of *have* to stay positive...I'm eating this because I care about me...because this makes me healthy, and puts me on this planet one more day in less pain...

Sweet, delicious portion control...mmmm....the one thing to keep in mind...if you were a big eater before, the capacity remains...I still startle people with the volume I can put down, even now, at 160. (they were, naturally, less surprised when I was at 240..go fig)

Keep taking the pics...they are more trustworthy than your eyes. :)

step by step it goes...

Heh, I know you are right, Jim. I refer you, as someone new to my LJ, to a much discussed "theme" of my life, as related in this entry in a community I belong to. The key word is, (all together) "moderation" and I struggle with this a good deal. A pound a week is an incredible feat of said moderation. Hence my optimism and enthusiasm. Intellectually, I know things that I haven't been able to actually apply to my life.

FWIW, I would prefer 5 pounds a week, but I know the 1 is much safer and more likely to be permanent.

Taking your advice in addition to Sophia's I've decided that I am going to "develop a healthy distaste for my gut." My gut, which of course, I intend to simultaneously love. hrm :-/
