Default Putting my/your weight loss into perspective.

I've lost 18 pounds so far.Not bad.But I've got a long way to go.
One thing that really made me feel some sense of progress was looking at how much weight I've lost.Not numbers on a scale.The actual weight.

I have a home gym.So there are barbells,and dumbbells,and weight plates.
I put 18 pounds in weight plates on the floor.That's a very clear picture of what I'm NOT carrying around anymore.
Next time you're at the gym pick up a dumbbell,or weight plate and think about the fact you don't have to carry that much weight around anymore.
Maybe you've lost 10,or 20 pounds and feel like you still have a long way to go.
I think feeling that weight will give you an idea of how far you've come.
