I have lost 3 stone 🙂
Or if you are not British, and so do not know about our bizarre system for weighing people, I have lost 42 pounds :-). If you are metric, I have lost 19.05 Kg.
The British use stones for weighing people. Stones are an Imperial form of measurement and were originally used for weighing agricultural produce for trading purposes. We no longer weigh agricultural produce in stones, just people. 1 stone is 14 pounds.
That was a significant milestone for me and I am delighted I made it. My next milestone is 50 pounds. I would like to lose that by Christmas.
So how much does 3 stone weigh. Or rather, what else weighs 3 stone so you can understand how much I have lost.
A newborn Calf
An average 5 year old boy
A bushel of apples (?)
19 litres of water.
No wonder moving around is easier !
I feel really pleased with myself. I was just disappointed to discover the WW consultant, Lisa, who I really liked, has had to leave. She was always very encouraging and she would have been really pleased. So I wish her luck with what she does next, and will continue on my weight loss journey without her cheerful smile and words of encouragement on a Monday evening.
What did I eat today? Who cares. I just lost 3 stone.
