I lost a 3 year old.. ( in weight... not my kiddo)

Saturday, January 14, 2012

HAHAH no I don't mean I lost a 3 year old kid...what I mean is The weight I have lost equals pretty much the amount of weight of my 3 year old daughter lol

She weights 42 lbs I have lost 40lbs. To me its funny to think of it that way but it puts it in perspective.

So now when I feel like I haven't done much or whatever I just pick her up and go O that's what that felt like!!! Can't wait to lose more!!

I've been thinking about this for about a week now but this morning I read a blog another sparker wrote called "Do you realize just how much you've lost? By MEWHENERYSMAMA.. you should check it out! Anyways she was challenge us to find something that weighted 15 20 lbs or whatever you have lost and pick it up and feel the difference. So that's what I did.. kinda.. I wasn't using my daughter as a weight or anything I just happen to pick her up one day and go oh wow your getting so big..and that's when it hit me humm she's 42 lbs and wow I just lost 40lbs.. WOW its like I lost a whole 3 year old so far... now I just need to lose 3 more 3 year old and 1 one year old hahahah

Anyways I think its a Great ideal.. anyone out there who doesn't think you have lost much or whatever... DO this.. find something or someone that weights about what you have lost... pick it or them up!! FEEL the difference!!! Oh yes you have Lost!!! And Keep up the Good work!!!!

    That's a great idea, I remember filling a back pack with tins of food until it weighed the 15lbs I lost, but I guess it more fun in terms of people! Congrats on losing 40lbs, that's a lot of work and sweat!

    Excellent idea. I keep telling my 11 1/2 year old son, when I am done losing weight I will have lost him, and that is CRAZY to think about. I will have to find something that is 70 pounds to lift....or I can lift Samuel a couple of times, he is 35 pounds! LOL. Have a great weekend Tara.

    Awesome, that you lost the weight equivalent of a 3 year old, and not an actual 3 year old! emoticon

    Whenever we buy cat food I find myself tracking how many bags would equal how much weight I've lost (we buy the 20lb. bags usually)... and then trying to figure out WHERE all that mass actually was on my body. A 50lb. bag of cat food isn't small... or light for that matter!

    That's wonderful! I was just telling my son (between us, we have lost 45 pounds) that we've lost the equivalent of 9 5-pound bags of sugar. It helps to put things in concrete terms like that, doesn't it? :D
