O.M.G. 1 Pound looks like what?

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

So- I hit a bit of a plateau and was feeling a little bummed out that I didn't really lose any weight last week. In fact, even thought I'm doing a low carb diet and was pretty dang strict for the last 2 weeks, the result was only about a pound a week.

I've lost about 10 lbs. since I started trying to get back into shape this year. And after it slowed down for the past two weeks, I started wondering what a pound of fat really looks like.

Wowza! It looks like this:



Are you kidding me! The size of coffee mug! I've lost 10 coffee mugs!

That's crazy! I will never look down at the scale and be upset by a 1 lb. weight loss again. Everytime I have a cup of coffee, I'm going to look and it and think about how many of those I'm shedding.

I'm also a little freaked out by how many extra lbs. I've been carrying around with me all of these years. I can't wait to lose 1 more!

    YA it is crazy to think that is what a pound of fat looks like. Sure helps to put into perspective how crucial every pound is. Keep up the good work, you are doing great!

    Oh wow. What a co-inky dink. I was trying to find a good picture yesterday. I had seen one pound in a hand, even better than the one I ended up finding and putting on my page. May I borrow yours also?

    I always imagine a package of bacon. Once you start laying those strips out on a cookie sheet you can get a good mental picture of why a one pound loss doesn't always thrill us. Distributed all over our bodies it doesn't look like much. But they certainly do add up!
