A couple of weeks ago someone posted what different things weigh and how many items equal a pound.  (According to that list I have lost the equalivant of 3 1/2 car tires) I can't find that post  and want to make a copy.  Anyone have that link?  thanks a million!

I used this early out when people would ask how much weight I'd lost.  I didn't want to have them seeking out numbers all the time (and then doing math in their heads and deciding that 2+2=5, which some would), so I'd give the equivalents off the list.  After a couple times, they stopped asking and just asked if I felt good.  That was much better all around.

Currently - I've lost a baby giraffe and 2 guinea pigs, and would like to find those guinea pigs again and maybe one of their friends! LOL!

I missed the post you are referring to, but I wrote an article about losing weight that outlined the weights of various items.  I've lost 13 pounds on the 17 Day Diet which is the weight of a bowling ball! It is also only 2 pounds less that a market umbrella! I'm not sure if if was my article someone posted or not, but you might find it answers your question. Here is the article:
"Losing Weight One Pound at a Time"

It's fun to associate our weight loss success with such impressive images, isn't it?
Good luck with continuing on your journey.  My sister had lap band surgery and lost sixty pounds!
