13 Weeks & 52 Blocks of Butter
Monday, August 03, 2009
Today I weighed myself and I have finally hit the 190lbs mark. Ive been constantly checking my weight in lbs, KG & stone, but I felt I really needed something more material to put my current acheivements into perspective.
So while I was unable / reluctant to go to the butchers and ask for 26lbs of dripping fat, I thought I would use the typical 250g block of butter...
I then drew up a little table to see how it all looks together...
I was stunned to see that I had lost 52..Yes 52 blocks of butter. I was so tempted to run down to the supermarket and understand what 52 blocks of butter looked like, but, didnt think that would be too feasible.
So I made a little picture to try and put it into context (although its not to scale of course!
OMG!!! Could I have really been carrying all that weight on me! Unbeleivable! I am not too far of my first goal now, but I know with my BF% that I will need to probably drop to 160lbs total, and will get another BF% check then.
Either way, This blog is to acknowledge that with a little focus, and determination, you really can acheive in a lot in a relatively short space of time. But its paramount in constantly evaluating your progress and in different ways, you must notice everything and you must be proud of yourself, tell everyone about how great you are, even if they yawn in your face!
I am proud to say I am obsessed with getting fitter! Wohooo!
How many blocks of butter have you lost?
