In honor of FINALLY hitting the 30 pound down mark I thought I would take a chance to celebrate with what has become one of my favorite things about this blog.  That’s right folks! It’s another round of what does the weight look like!

So what is thirty pounds?

My new Sewing Machine! This baby rings in at whooping 33 pounds. It’s heavy enough that my family has made it a rule that I am not allowed to carry it on the stairs. The first time I tried to pick it up it took me 3 times because it wouldn’t even move the first few.

 

Just think and I have been carrying that around! Crazy!

If we talk in terms of Butter we are looking at 120.5 sticks of butter!  That’s more butter then even Paula Dean could cook with! Can you imagine walking around carrying 120.5 sticks of butter? I sure can’t! Yet, that is what I’ve been doing! I can’t believe it!

If we calculated out into M&M’s that would be 150,000 M&Ms! Holy cow that’s a lot of chocolate!

 

 

 

So now it’s your turn dear readers! What objects can you come up with that are 30 pounds?

  1. Great, now I want 150,000 M&Ms! 😉

    In all seriousness, congrats on hitting the 30 pound mark!

  2. Congrats on the 30 pound loss. Cute article, I’ve been grumbling that I can’t see much difference in my 12 pound loss but you are right, I can FEEL the difference.

    • Yeah I find if you take a moment to really think about what it means to loose the weight you have it helps to put things in perspective.

      • Oh if it makes you feel any better the day this picture was taken I was grumbling about how I couldn’t see the difference. That was until a certain teenager pulled up my blog and held up my before picture right beside this one.
