Linking up with the Weigh-In Wednesday crew....check out all the awesome blogs!
Big milestone this week. I lost 1.8 pounds which brings me to exactly 25 pounds or 1/3 of a certain puppy :) She would say she is just a petite lap dog.
To celebrate 25 pounds lost I went on a "What Weighs 25 Pounds?"safari. I am terrible at guessing how much something weighs. Now I have a pretty good idea what 25 pounds feels like. Thank you to my extra special photographer...my niece. She got some good angles that I think make me look like I have lost more than I have...who doesn't like that??
|Potatoes - 2 10-pound bags and 1 5-pound bag.|
|Ground beef - 5 5-pound packages|
|Some sort of wheat - I had never seen this before.|
|Sugar - 6 4-pound bags (a little short but I never could resist sugar).|
|Soda - 24 pack + 6 pack|
|Cheese - 5 5-pound blocks|
|Milk - 3 gallons approx. 8 pounds each. Incidentally, "did you know the human head weighs 8 pounds?" Name that movie.|
|Kitty Litter - 25 pound box. Can you believe we couldn't find a single 25 pound bag of dog food :(|
"Attention Walmart shoppers...crazy lady in aisle...well, in all aisles." We were pretty efficient in our picture plan so I am not sure if people really noticed what we were doing. You know I was going to throw my niece under the bus if confronted...say it was for a "what things weigh" project she was doing for school. That might have backfired since school hasn't started yet. I am such a bad aunt :)
I took this picture at work before I decided to invade Walmart. Five pounds per ream of paper!
As far as which item felt the heaviest, it was definitely the kitty litter. It was a fun exercise to give myself an idea of what I have accomplished. Glad I am not hauling that weight around anymore. I said from the start that I would really feel like I was doing it for real when I got to 25-30 pounds lost. It is starting to feel real :)
Okay, I promise NO MORE pictures of me today. Instead a picture of our delicious dinner. Arroz con Pollo at our favorite Mexican place. We split the yellow plate and ordered an additional side of veggies, which we also split. So delicious and less than 600 calories each.
In all seriousness, I can't say I have ever seen that many pictures of myself in one place that I didn't hate. I believe that qualifies as a NSV :)
