Losing that last 15: Consider the Blocks of Butter

20140208-093606.jpgFor the last few months I’ve been “phoning it in,” (a Jillian Michael’s phrase) in regard to putting in effort to lose that last 15 lbs. But when the New York snow blew in, I changed my attitude. I shut off the rolling questions and negativity in my head and went all Nike on myself: “Just Do It.”

I just lost 4 lbs. in two weeks and while some of you may think thats not a lot, know that as you get closer to your goal weight, it becomes more difficult to lose weight.

Have you ever heard that one pound is the same as a block of butter? No, not a stick of butter, a block. A block is four sticks of butter in one of those tiny flimsy boxes. Work-off two of those from your butt and you’ll be jumping with excitement like I am right now.

I have a friend who already worked off over 66 lbs. on her own. Thats unreal to me. Find her on Instagram: pmpjourney
