For fun: How much weight HAVE you lost?
[I wrote this 10 years ago to try to help people with even small weight losses keep their loss in perspective and celebrate it. And PLEASE! Let's keep responses POSITIVE.]

A doctor once told me to never say I have just lost 10-20-30 lbs??? He said to put whatever amount of weight you have lost in a sack and try to carry it around with you one day....then you will realize how much you have taken off of your bones.
