A Stick of Butter

So, I was feeling a little bummed out this morning when I stepped on the scale and I have only lost 6 1/2 pounds! Normally, I could lose weight just by dieting and not exercising and it drop off faster...I've been exercising my butt off!

Miles Jogged: 11.6
Miles Walked: 4.5
Bow Flex Arm Workout: 7 nights
Wii Active: 3 times (just bought it Tuesday)

Worked out 11 out of 15 days!!

I was thinking while driving back from Nashville today about a stick of butter. We all know it takes 4 sticks of butter to make a pound. Well, if you take 6 1/2 pounds and multiply it by 4, I've lost 26 sticks of butter. Doesn't that make it seem like a much bigger feat???

When you are feeling down and blue about your weight loss, think of it as sticks of butter...


  1. Jodi, you are doing sooo good! Don't get discouraged! I have lost only 5.5 lbs and I have been working out/watching what I eat since April 6wks and not even a lb a can be very frustrating! I love the butter sticks analogy...I have lost 22 sticks of butter :) Keep up the great work!

  2. I think you are doing awesome! I love the sticks of butter analogy!

  3. Thanks girls...I have to keep reminding myself...sticks of butter...LOL!
