Why Appreciate .2, .4, .6, .8?

Sometimes it is very hard to visualize pounds lost and how much food it would be equal to. Hope this helps you visualize what your weight loss can do for others.

.2 lbs is 3.2 ounces = Ramen Noodles which will feed two people
.4 lbs is 6.4 ounces = a pouch of tuna fish with 3 servings
.6 lbs is 9.6 ounces = a Target Pasta Helper serving 5
.8 lbs is 12.8 ounces = Multigrain Cherrios which has 12 servings

I purposefully did not put a 0 before any of these weights. Mary mentioned in today's meeting that all she ever sees is the 0 in 0.2 and does not think of it as a loss. Let's change our thinking. Any loss is a good loss. Remember to bring in food items equaling your loss for the week. Together we can Lose for Good.
