Fun ways to look at what you've lost!

As of last Tuesday I had lost 23 1/2 pounds. To some people this may not seem like a lot, but to others  it's a huge amount. To me, as I'm not even a quarter of the way there it seems a little insignificant, but I know I should be celebrating every pound. I came across this post on a weight loss surgery blog (not something I'm considering, don't worry! A friend of mine has just had surgery and was sharing recipes with me) and thought I'd share with you a different way to look at how the pounds add up.

24 Pounds is equal to=

24 Guinea Pigs

6 Ostrich Eggs

Two average adult cats

What, us?

An average 2 year old
My 14 month old, Jake, who weighs 21 pounds

Half a bale of hay

Don't they look like Weetabix? Probably tastes about as good too...yum.

A quarter of a two-month old horse!

You didn't think I'd actually quarter it, did you? Far too gory!

And, once I reach my target of just over 90lbs I will have lost the equivalent of...

A newborn calf!

And because I couldn't leave him out, my (almost) 4 year old Ollie, who weighs 39 pounds.

Incredible! So, what have you lost?



  1. In 7 weeks I have lost 20 pounds and it feels great :-)

  2. Incredible! That's the equivalent of a car tyre! Can you imagine carrying a car tyre round with you all day?!
