Okay so this might sound very obvious, but I never really thought about it before until my doctor mentioned it the other day!
If youve lost say two kilos, and you cant really see it in yourself, try walking around the house for 10 minutes with a 2kg bag of potatos! Its actually quite heavy and to think that you are that much lighter makes it a more realistic acheivement!
I thought it might help as a bit of a pick me up to those of you who find it hard to get the big numbers going!
I used to manage a Medical Clinic and one of the Doctors had a big plastic, spongy object that was exactly what 1 kilo of fat would look, feel and be like.
I asked many times if I could have it, as that was a great motivator for all of us girls in the Clinic!
I would love to have something like that to sit on my desk with me now! Or, even better, put IN the fridge!!

Working at Maccas it would be easy to visualise the pound you're losing as quater pounder patties, if you lose 1 pound that is four quater pounder patties i've lost about 6and a half pounds (3kg)since i first started so that is 26 quater pounder patties!! I can't wait until i have lost the equivalent of a box worth of quater patties, they are pretty heavy to carry!!
