Just waved goodbye to the first 75!!!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Wow!! I stepped on the scale this morning, and Iíve lost 75 lbs since the beginning of 2012!! Yay!

So, hereís what I didnít know about 75 lbsÖ

Assuming there are 3,500 calories in one pound of fat, in the past 9 and a half months, Iíve burned 262,500 more calories than Iíve consumed Ė WOW! So basically, Iíve said ďNo, thank youĒ to the equivalent of:

2,187 of my momís world-famous chocolate chip cookies (just so you know, Iíve said ďYES!Ē to a few!!)

Or...1,033 regular Milky Way candy bars, or 6,908 of the mini-mini Milky Ways!!

Or...345 Burger King Whopper with cheese Ė WOW! Thatís almost 1 a day for a whole year!!

Hereís some other neat little tid-bitsÖ.

My favorite ring that fit perfectly on my ring finger now falls off my middle finger.
My Pandora bracelet now slides over my hand to come off (time for some new charms!! Hehehe)

A cinder block (cement block) weighs about 30 lbs, so Iíve lost the equivalent of 2.5 cement blocks. Thereís no way I could pick up 2.5 cement blocks, but Iíve carried that much extra weight around for years.

A gallon of milk weighs 8 lbs, so 75 lbs is the equivalent of 9.375 gallons of milk!! If Iím trying to make that last trip to the car for groceries really count, I can carry 4 gallons successfully Ė Iíve lost more than twice that amount of weight!!

One moreÖ

A 10 gallon fish tank weighs almost 13 pounds, 7.5 gallons of water is about 62 lbs, so 75 lbs is the equivalent weight of a 10 gallon fish tank, filled ĺ of the way with water!

Woo Hoo!! I'm on my way to One Hundred!!

Whatís your Woo Hoo this week??
