I found this program on a TOPS group's web page. I have not met the person who wrote it. I added my own ideas to it but want give credit to the orignal poster. It was a long time ago and I don't even know if this email is correct but here's where I found it. ( MTNDEW1555@aol.com)
Before I gave this talk at my TOPS meeting I took a one pound can of Crisco and added a little yellow food coloring to it. I heated it up and then let it cool off to simulate one pound of Fat. I passed it around the meeting as I read this. So try to visualize that now as you read further.
"Hello, fellow travelers on this weight loss journey.
Do you know me? If you don't you should. I 'm a pound of fat, and I am the happiest pound of fat that you will ever meet. Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me. I am only one pound of fat. Everyone wants to lose 3, 5, 10, 15 pounds, but never only one pound. So I just stick around and happily keep you fat. Then, I add to myself ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it, that is until I've grown to 10, 20, 30 or more pounds in weight. Yes , it's fun being just a pound of fat. Left to do as I please. So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound" (As if that were such a terrible thing) For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage your fellow members to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing. And. I love being around you, your arms, legs, chin, hips, thighs and every part of your body. For you see, "I'm Only One Pound Of Fat"
