What Fat Really Looks Like!! Has Pictures!!

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I found a website that shows what fat really looks like. It sobered me to begin thinking about getting upset over only losing a pound, or only 5 lbs....





So, I feel that losing only 1 lb is really looking pretty good!






WOW, I've lost 6 of these already but until I saw this picture, I didn't think it was a big deal!








AND LASTLY, this is a comparison of 1 lb of muscle, compared to the size of 1 lb of FAT!

So this is what Strength Training can do for you, it burns the fat, replaces fat with muscle which makes you smaller !!





Lastly, here is a pic of an actual muscle that weighs 5 lbs, and guess what?? The FAT also weighs 5 lbs too!!!!

THIS PIC MADE ME THINK ABOUT THE FAT THAT SURROUNDS MY BICEP ARM MUSCLES!!


FAT SEEMS TO BE 3 TIMES THE SIZE OF MUSCLE. THAT MAKES ME BRAIN BEGIN TO THINK!


I THINK I WILL BE GOING TO THE GYM MORE FREQUENTLY, OH, AND TWEAK MY DIET SO IT HELPS ME BUILD MUSCLE TO MAKE ME SMALLER AND STRONGER!! I THINK I WILL USE MY FITBIT TO MOTIVATE ME TO DO MORE CARDIO WALKING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TOO!!!

    Also, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.

Also good for scrambling green eggs. emoticon

You, the emerald biggest user, and me green with envy! emoticon

    Cool beans! I remember Oprah with her wagon of fat, but I also remember she went on the soup only diet, and look at her today. Oprah doesn't want to give up her comfort foods. I guess she doesn't want to live long either. Sad because I really like her, wish she would learn about eating natural to live, she can afford all those organics. Why am I talking about Oprah? lol emoticon

    I love this post! I've lost 9 inches since starting Curves, but really I haven't hardly lost any weight, so the pictures of the fat v muscle reassure me that I'm on the right track. Thanks, Phyllis!

    Muscle is more dense than fat, which also means it's a preferred source of calories if a person isn't eating enough. Which is why it's important to strength train while trying to lose weight, because the body will 'eat' the muscle first and leave the fat behind. If you're using the muscles (strength training) then the body won't 'eat' them and will 'eat' the fat instead. So eating less and not working out will allow a person to lose weight, but it will be the muscle weight not the fat weight, which then slows down the metabolism even more.

    What a fantastic blog! This was super cool and actually kind of mind blowing. Surely puts a new perspective on what it really means to lose a pound ... rather than what we think it means when say, 'I've ONLY lost one pound this week.

Thanks for doing this one!

  I have seen pictures of fat before, but not muscles and certainly not side-by-side. emoticon for sharing!
