My image is improving

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Since January 8 2013 I have lost 28 lb. The last time I weighed this much was on 2 September 2008, 54 months ago almost to the day. Since then I have lost and gained, but mostly gained. So I am weighing the least I weighed in years.

Here are some images of what fat looks like, sourced from the internet:
5lbs of fat and 1lb fat, that is 2.27kg and .45 kg.

I have gained muscle. Here is what 5 lb fat looks like, compared to 5lb of muscle:

This shows how come you can lose inches and not weight if you are training while dieting. Encouraging, eh?

I have to start noting the fat decrease and muscle increase on my scale. The problem is, the numbers are so small on my scale, they look so far away, and only display for 3 seconds at a time. I will have to resort to photographing them on my phone, haha!

Here is 100lb of fat. This image reminds me of the saying, how do you eat an elephant? The answer is, one bite at a time. I plan to release this much fat in the next year:

Have a great sparkie day, sparkers!

THANKYOU, yes, little, heheh

    What a GREAT visual lesson! Thank you for sharing it and I plan to lose not only 100 but about another 150 of those pesky things. I love the image of 100 - I am going to lose that and another half table full of them. Taking it ONE bite at a time. My son also enjoyed looking at the images and thought you had done a SUPER job illustrating just what is in front of us. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
