Found this list, think it's a great way to visualise how much you have lost. Especially when people say they have 'only' lost a pound - that's a guinea pig! LOL. I've lost the chemical additives an American consumes each year (odd!).

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

That makes me feel a lot better, actually. I've lost a car tire. 0_0

Or 22 guinea pigs, which I think is a much more entertaining way to look at it.

Or two house cats (though only one of the cats we used to have).

Think how tricky it is to pick up and carry a car tire - well, you ain't carrying that any more! :) Great, isn't it?

Haha! This is excellent. I've lost a 2 year old!

Before now, I've measured against my starting weight. So my 25lb is equal to 13% of my starting weight. Losing a 2 year old certainly makes me smile. :)
July 18, 2011 5:12 AM
Haha...so far I've lost an average two year old!
July 18, 2011 5:14 AM
That's awesome! It really puts things in perspective....I am in between the world's largest ball of tape and a new born calf! Wow!

I'm at 10 dozen large eggs, but I was thinking about this very thing this weekend while we were out on our bike ride. I told my husband that I thought the ride was getting easier, and it must be because I've lost 15, which is the equivalent of trying to ride my bike with our fattest cat on my lap...
