100 lb. Club - Things that equal your loss
02-13-2013, 02:05 PM
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!
