This is ACTUALLY just 5......but I like to share everytime I hit an additional 5 pounds.

Sometimes we really don't realize the impact that just 5 pounds has on our body....it's a major!!

SO, I'VE LOST **4 of these** as of TODAY!!! WHOOT WHOOT!!!...Basically like giving birth to 4 -- 5 pound babies!!!

AMAZING!!! drinker drinker

You're right, we dont really think about the impact of losing pounds. I think we see down one pound and think because its just ONE pound or two or three that it doesnt make much difference but it does.

Yeah imagine walking around all day carrying 4 sacks of potatoes on your back , Before I started here I lost 98lbs, thats almost the same as carrying my 23 year old daughter around with me all the time...and I wondered why my knees ached lol
May 9, 2010 9:22 AM
Wow! That is great to see! I too have lost 4 of those as of today. Awesome!!

Almost 5 of them gone for me! Yay! The other day I was trying to compare my weight loss to something. Like 5 - 5lb bags of sugar I was carrying around. Hard to imaging carrying that around all day.
May 9, 2010 1:17 PM
It's hard to believe I have lost 9 of those so far in the past year. That's a lot of volume.

Thanks... I don't realize even though I have only lost a little over 6 lbs in 2 months, that picture speaks volumn! Yak!!! Can't wait to get rid of 5 more of those...

Wow....sure does make you think!! I've always compared by lbs. lost to a lb. of butter...i.e. If I've lost 5 lbs for example, I picture 5 lbs of butter stuck to my body that is now gone!!! I guess we all have our own ways of visualizing the weight loss....keep up the good work everyone!! :)

Oh gross! :( That's what I'm carrying around in me? Thanks so much for the pictures!


And, lol! I thought of the baby thing the other day too! I was like "I've lost three 9-pound babies". And 9 pounds is big for a baby!
May 26, 2010 9:35 AM
