I was so happy to receive a few emails during the week from people who have been excited to tell me of their weight loss progress. They have accepted the fact that to lose weight they had to actually do something about it and stop kidding themselves that a small change in their diets was good enough to make their weight lower.
Here is a couple of excerpts from the emails:
"Thanks for being so blunt and giving me such a simple formula to lose weight: Less food + more exercise = weight loss. This has really given me something to work to and I have lost 7 pounds in 4 weeks. I have a goal of losing 2 stone and I will get that weight off."
"I thought you were very brave to post your photo on your weight loss webpage and I really looked at myself in the mirror and was disgusted with the way I looked. Was this why you started the weight loss website? Whatever the reason, I just want to let you know that I have started a weight loss program just because of your bravery and guidance. Keep up the good work."

Thanks for the positive feedback and I feel so glad that my ugly fat belly could motivate someone to join the program and make a change in their life. If you missed the photo of how I looked at the beginning of my weight loss program you can find it here.
I think it is a good idea to get a photo taken of how you look before starting to lose weight. Strip down to underwear and get someone to take your photo. Look at it often and if the image disgusts you like my image did for me, or how Brian was disgusted with his image in the mirror, don't you think it is then time to do something about it?
If you are too ashamed or embarrassed of how you look in your underwear to get somebody to take that photo, then you certainly need to do something to correct what's wrong soon. I challenge you to take a photo, start a weight loss program and then take another photo say 3 months from now. You will be amazed at the results if you stick to it.
