A good way to put your weight loss into perspective

Postby Jenni » Mon Jan 08, 2007 12:09 pm

Okay so this might sound very obvious, but I never really thought about it before until my doctor mentioned it the other day!

If youve lost say two kilos, and you cant really see it in yourself, try walking around the house for 10 minutes with a 2kg bag of potatos! Its actually quite heavy and to think that you are that much lighter makes it a more realistic acheivement!

I thought it might help as a bit of a pick me up to those of you who find it hard to get the big numbers going!

Wow, I'd never thought of it like that either.

Thanks!

Thats a really good idea... another way of looking at weight loss is new born babies... they get bloody heavy after a while.
SW:91kg
CW:75kg
GW: Somwhere in the 60's for now

Next mini goal:73kg

I used to manage a Medical Clinic and one of the Doctors had a big plastic, spongy object that was exactly what 1 kilo of fat would look, feel and be like.
I asked many times if I could have it, as that was a great motivator for all of us girls in the Clinic!

I would love to have something like that to sit on my desk with me now! Or, even better, put IN the fridge!!

Cheers
Tiffany :D

I like to look at it this way for every pound 1 lose, I consider that 1 pound of hamburger gone! So 3.5 pounds of hamburger gone for me...
Easier to visualize this way...

Yeah so true, I guess because you can never lift yourself you never know how "heavy" heavy feels:)
I cracked the 90kg mark for the first time in two years, I'm happy!!

Working at Maccas it would be easy to visualise the pound you're losing as quater pounder patties, if you lose 1 pound that is four quater pounder patties i've lost about 6and a half pounds (3kg)since i first started so that is 26 quater pounder patties!! I can't wait until i have lost the equivalent of a box worth of quater patties, they are pretty heavy to carry!!
