View Full Version : Things that equal your loss

So I saw this in another thread and thought it was cute...

I have lost 32 LBS so far so here are a few things that weigh 32 LBS:

An ‘average’ 3 1/2 year old boy.
14.5 bags of sugar.
Three(ish) gallons of water
A couple of Jack Russell Terriors

I yanked this off the internet, not my own. So its plagiarism but whatever. I think it gets the point across ;D.

I lost a Tori Spelling...:shrug:

Ok that was funny. I still weigh over double what she weighs and could never imagine being that small. To be her size you'd literally have to cut me down the middle! Talk about a tiny woman!

Very neat idea!

I have lost just about 50 lbs from my all-time high. So, I've lost $1,000 in quarters, or a small bale of hay, or (now that I think about it) my dog, who is a Bassa-beagl-whoosit, and weighs about 50 lbs.

If you don't think 42 pounds is a major weight loss go to the store and bench press one of these babies!!

I thought I was going to die carrying it up the stairs! I can't believe I once carried this around every day!

03-03-2013, 06:15 PM

Spare tire... heh

I really enjoyed this thread before, I thought i'd try and revive it maybe.

Post a picture of a thing that equals your weight loss.

I'm just about back to 40lbs lost. So that's like losing...

A 5 year old kid!
