Never gets tired of SW!
G: 10st10lb
Hi folks, we seem to be on a bit of a roll on motivational threads at the moment and the one about the benefits of being lighter triggered something in my head to talk about what our weight loss equates to and I find it quite fascinating!! I often pick up an item and feel its weight and think how many of 'those' I've lost- it's a very motivating thing to do!! So..... I've lost the maximum luggage allowance on a Ryanair flight (15kg) OR about 10 average sized honeydew melons OR about 8 2litre bottles of pop!!!

Over to you.........

I have lost the equivalent of my niece who weighs 21 pounds. Its weird, if I carry her for too long, my arms start to ache; however, I used to carry that weight everyday and I never noticed it!! :)

I think fish are an excellent measure of your weight loss and due to the thousands of mad-keen fisherman, there are loads of photos of you to compare your lost fat with!

I am currently lighter by a fish like this:
