Good advice.  It's easy to get discouraged when you work hard but it doesn't seem to be making any difference.  Then when you see the changes but nobody else does.  I've gone to places where I haven't seen people for almost a year and have been shocked that they didn't notice the weight loss.  Sometimes I think it's because they are afraid of saying anything - it's rude to talk about fat.  Other times I think it's because people don't always actually look at fat people.  I have accidentally worn my clothes inside out and nobody mentioned it because nobody really looked at me.  Fat  makes people uncomfortable.  Fear that they might become fat.  Disgust that the other person became fat.  Lots of negative emotions tied up in our bodies and oddly enough in other people's bodies too.

One step doesn't mean anything.  One penny isn't much.  Take 100 of both and you've got something.  It's the same with workouts and dieting.  One situp, not so much, one less calorie - not going to make a difference.  Do that sit up again and again.  Cut that calorie and 100 of his friends.  then you see the difference.  Feel it too and that's better.
