When you think of shedding pounds, do you think of the fat literally falling off? I do. I imagine fat falling off like hair during a hair cut. But, as we all know, it doesn’t happen like that. So, if you’re losing weight, where does it go?
Well, from what I understand, fat cells shrink as you burn more calories than you take in and the fat is excreted from the body. I’m now looking at myself differently. When I look in the mirror now, I see big ass fat cells everywhere. My challenge is to shrink as many of them as possible. Shouldn’t that be your challenge, too?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually see the fat lost? Part of me would love to see it to see just how much I don’t have to carry around anymore. But, another part of me doesn’t want to see it because then I’d have to clean it up. 😀
Anyway, as long as the fat keeps coming off, I don’t really care where it goes. Just as long as it stays gone! Always remember to burn more calories than you eat in order to see the number on the scale go down. But, DON’T get too wrapped up in that number. Take into consideration how much better you feel and never forget all of your NSVs (non-scale victory). It all makes a difference and it all counts!
