For most people, if they gain five pounds, they’re like, “Oh my God, I’ve gained five pounds. It’s gone to my neck, it’s gone to under my arms, every time I say goodbye. It’s in my bra fat. Look at that, it’s back there and everywhere!”

Look at this picture. This is what makes you heavier, this is what makes it harder to breathe, this is what makes it harder to tie your shoes, this is what makes it harder to do all those different things that we need to do in life.

This also makes your cholesterol go up, your blood pressure go up, and all those other things.

This is literally what makes your life more difficult and harder!

So next time that you’re like, “Hmm, just five pounds,” that five pounds makes a difference for every single thing you do in your life.

Now, if you stillllllll don’t think it’s that big of a deal to lose 5 pounds, think about this…

We smack it, we poke it, we pinch it, we weigh it.

We do all these things to it because it matters.

We all care about our vanity a little bit, but we care about our health a lot. And the fat you see in this picture above is slowing you down in every aspect of your life.

So next time that you lose five pounds, don’t put that word “just” in front of it.

It’s not “just” five pounds.

You’ve lost five pounds of fat and it matters.
