Worked for Me!
"The whole time I was losing weight, I made sure to have a five-pound bag of potatoes in the house. And every time I lost another five pounds, I'd haul out that bag and take a good look. It was my way of visualizing how much weight I'd just gotten rid of—and it's what I needed to keep going."
