I've seen this on other weight loss sites, I might have even seen it on 3FC before. I find it fascinating to compare what I've lost to everyday items. I thought others might enjoy it too!

Here are some weight comparisons...What equivalent have you shed and what will you be shedding?

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”)

:dizzy: Back when I was just over 80lbs lost, my best friends wife made a comment about haw she had struggled getting two 40lb bags of fertilizer to her car that day and compared my weight lost to the equivalent of two bags of Sh*t! I thought it was a pretty good reference... At 3 bags lost and still going!

I just realized I never added mine. My bad!

I've lost almost a cinder block, and would like to lose a baby giraffe! I've still got a 2 month old horse to go.

I think that might be the strangest thing I've ever typed! ;)

I'm bumping this up, just because I loved it the first time I saw it, and got to wondering what my weight loss equates to now.

55 pounds = a 5000 BTU air conditioner

WHOA. :eek:
