50 lbs. Gone!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Iíve been trying to wrap my brain around having lost over 50 lbs. of my body weight. Because Iíve lost the weight in small increments, 1 lb. here and a half pound there, as Iíve approached this milestone loss, I havenít really thought of it as a big deal. But I guess it is.

I spent some time today comparing my loss with pictures of what 50 lbs. really looks like.

Of course, the 50 lb. bags of stuff always come to mind. So if I were a bag of play sand or rice, this is what my loss would look like:



I found this interesting. If I were a fish, this is what my loss would look like:



And if I had just suddenly dropped 50 lbs. of fat, it would look like this

(ewww)

But to really put the 50 lb. loss into terms I can understand, my dog Jasper weighs 50 lbs. So when someone asks if Iíve lost weight, now I can reply, ďYes, Iíve lost a Jasper.Ē

And the best comparison is always the side by side comparison:

Pattie,
I am sorry I missed this blog in my week of doing nothing but hiding under the covers from this cold bug. You have done so well my friend !!! Wonderful!! I am so proud of you and how you did it. And if I read right you are two lbs from your final goal if I got that right! Wow, how nice it would be to be there, I can't even imagine! I love that you've rune & walked and worked your way out of that 50 lb goo. I am trying to do the same and I think it will be easier to keep off if I have made that active lifestyle my normal from this point on as you have. You should be so proud of yourself my dear!
Hugs and loud crazy happy screams to you!! Had to do a little jumping up and down for you too there for a minute. My cast did not like that lol. I am dying to weigh myself but I will not be able to until I get this cast off. But trying to keep my food in check so I do not have a great horrible gain to deal with when I get it off. Hugs and celebrations with you my friend. Susan
