    Talking Weight Loss Equivalents

    Ok, I would like to know how much everybody has lost, and tell me the equivalent that you can relate your loss too. I thought this would be a great thread, I hope you like it too.

    Since I lost 25 pounds, mine pounds loss is equivalent
    to 25 pounds of hamburger! That is a whole lotta beef that disappeared off of my body!

    Ok, who's next.. what is your weightloss in equivalent to?

    Thanks KD,
    Big or small, I love all of those equivalent comparisons. No matter how lil weight or how much weight, we all have the same GOAL to lose weight, so we can all relate.

    Lol I wish I had found this diet about 20 years ago, then maybe I would've been hot!!

    Bit old and saggy now though! I think I need the air conditioner back to help with the hot flushes of menopause

    I know the feeling Poor family hardly had the heating on for a couple of winters.

    Doctor said they can last for up to 20 years You so wanted to know that didn't you

    I do find certain foods can send me rushing to open all the windows, but they seem much better these days.

    No sure whether I'm in recovery ...(had them for about 10 years now), or because I don't eat so much processed carbs. There again it might be because I wear more silk these days. Silk blouses or jumpers really seem to help keep my body temperature more comfortable.
