Reverb 10 - 11 Things

What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life? (Author: Sam Davidson)

Can I just say 11 pounds? Because I really don't need to be carrying around 11 extra pounds right now.


Apparently this is what five pounds of fat looks like.  Here is what one pound looks like with a size reference.

1 pounder

Isn't that just grrreeeat?

I've thought about starting some sort of food blog to help me be more mindful of what I'm putting in my body, but I've never followed through. Perhaps something like what Jenna does at That Wife? I tend to think of myself as a "healthy eater," but I have a sinking feeling that if I really analyzed about everything that I ate I might be surprised at how unhealthy my diet actually is.

 I don't think losing 11 pounds would change my life much, but I do think I'd feel better about myself!

I randomly found this post while looking for images of what a pound of fat looks like. I'm trying to visualize what I've been able to do this year. In 39 days (I started on the first of January) I have lost 31.2 pounds, going from 377.2 on 1/1 to 346.0 this morning. I still have a long way to go to achieve my goal, and from experience, I can tell you that losing weight does feel incredible. I've noticed it in my clothes, in how I sleep, even in my appetite. I hope you have stuck with the effort and are close to your 11 pounds.

Wow, Harry! Congratulations! That is amazing! I'm trying, but so far I haven't been as successful as you. Thanks for the inspiration!
