Sylvia's Salmon with What Came First Noodles

Current Weight:

14 stone 10lbs

Weight Loss since March 2010:

1 stone 8lbs

Today's Syn Count:

8 on Extra Easy


I was momentarily shocked by Gail's recent blog that she had 'lost her daughter'. I read on to find she had actually lost her 5 year daughters equivalent in weight, which is an amazing achievement.

With a 1 stone 8lb reduction I have lost somewhere in between Squirky and The Troll's weights but thought it would be fun to know what I could equate my loss to so far.

I found this funny comparison and it turns out I have lost 2 guinea pigs, a sperm whales brain and an ostrich egg. My interim target is to lose an elephants heart and a human brain, and ideally I'd love to lose 2 guinea pigs shy of a newborn calf......

I woke this morning and remembered that yesterday I had a cup of tea which I forgot to add into my syns yesterday. Another one to add to my list of naughty habits!
Also I was reminded of another weigh in 'cheat'. I used to weigh my clothes before I went to class and pick the lightest items to wear!
