One Pound of Fat...
Too Little To Lose

Hello! Do you know me?

If you don't, you should.

I am one pound of fat, and I am the happiest pound of FAT that you would ever want to meet!

Want to know why?

It's because no one ever wants to lose me!

After all, I am only ONE POUND OF FAT. Just ONE POUND.

Everyone wants to lose 3 or 5 or 15 pounds, but never ONLY one.

So, I just stick around and happily keep you fat.

Then I am free to add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice...

That is, until I have grown to 10, 20 or even 30 pounds in weight...

YES... it is fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT... left to do just as I please.

So, when you weigh in, go ahead...

just keep on saying, "Oh I only lost one pound."

(As if that is so terrible.)

For you see, if you do this, you will encourage others to hang around me because they will think that I am not worth losing.

And I LOVE being around you... your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips, and every other part of you.
