Ever try to lose weight, look at yourself in the mirror and say, “It’s not working. I look the same as I did two weeks ago!” Well, I came across an article a while ago by a dietitian called, The Paper Towel Analogy and it’s a brilliant way to really put the whole process of weight loss in a great and healthier perspective:
The lesson to be learned is that fat, like paper towels, comes off in sheets. When you are heavy, you are big around. And when you are big around, that fat is spread over a MUCH larger area – just like that outside towel sheet. The closer you get to the lean you, the more each lost pound of fat shows, because it is spread over a smaller area.
