50 lbs. Gone!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around having lost over 50 lbs. of my body weight. Because I’ve lost the weight in small increments, 1 lb. here and a half pound there, as I’ve approached this milestone loss, I haven’t really thought of it as a big deal. But I guess it is.

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


But to really put the 50 lb. loss into terms I can understand, my dog Jasper weighs 50 lbs. So when someone asks if I’ve lost weight, now I can reply, “Yes, I’ve lost a Jasper.”

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