Default weight loss comparisons! Too cool!

Good morning! I found this great comparison chart on another site and thought it would be a great motivator for us all!

P.S I have lost the equivelant of a 2 year old child!!


1 pound = a Guinea Pig
1.5 pounds = a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts
2 pounds = a rack of baby back ribs
3 pounds = an average human brain
4 pounds = an ostrich egg
5 pounds = a Chihuahua
6 pounds = a human’s skin
7.5 pounds = an average newborn
8 pounds = a human head
10 pounds= chemical additives an American consumes each year
11 pounds = an average housecat
12 pounds = a Bald Eagle
15 pounds = 10 dozen large eggs
16 pounds = a sperm whale’s brain
20 pounds = an automobile tire
23 pounds = amount of pizza an average American eats in a year
24 pounds = a 3-gallon tub of super premium ice cream
25 pounds = an average 2 year old
30 pounds = amount of cheese an average American eats in a year
33 pounds = a cinder block
36 pounds = a mid-size microwave
40 pounds = a 5-gallon bottle of water or an average human leg
44 pounds = an elephant’s heart
50 pounds = a small bale of hay
55 pounds = a 5000 BTU air conditioner
60 pounds = an elephant’s penis (yep, weights more than his heart!)
66 pounds = fats and oils an average American eats in a year
70 pounds = an Irish Setter
77 pounds = a gold brick
80 pounds = the World’s Largest Ball of Tape
90 pounds = a newborn calf
100 pounds = a 2 month old horse
111 pounds = red meat an average American eats in a year
117 pounds = an average fashion model (and she’s 5’11”)
118 pounds = the complete Encyclopedia Britannica
120 pounds = amount of trash you throw away in a month
130 pounds = a newborn giraffe
138 pounds = potatoes an average American eats in a year
140 pounds = refined sugar an average American eats in a year
144 pounds = an average adult woman (and she’s 5’4”)

As of December 29, 2009, I've lost the equivalent of a two-year-old child.
My goal is to lose the total equivalent weight of an elephant's p*nis. Perhaps I'll find another equivalent :-)

i dunno, if I had a gold brick that weighed 77 lbs, I don't think I'd want to lose it.

An elephant’s heart...huh, interesting.

That being said, I think I like losing:
a 3-gallon tub of super premium ice cream (24)
an automobile tire (20)
Because I've had to lug both of those around before and they seem much more tangible to me than the elephant heart

I've lost 10 dozen eggs!

10 dozen...damn.

I can't remember which old exercise video taught me this but the tip was to visualize each five extra pounds you carry as one of those five pound bags of sugar...hard for me to believe how many of those I've been carrying around on my gut and hips...lol...

But thinking of it as one and a half 5000 BTU air conditioners...that really brings it home!

Crazy, eh! When I look at it this way, it is no wonder I was always tired out, cranky and plain old sore! I was carting around a 2 month old horse on my back daily!! I wonder though if we have massive muscles under all our "extra's" since we were lugging this **** around day in day out???

I am happy to report an update! As of yesterday, I have now lost 30 pounds!!! That is the equivelant to the amount of cheese the average American eats in a year! Holy - thats a lot of cheese!

So I've now downsized from a horse to an Irish setter!! lol! Gotta love it!
