EDIT: I am a doofus. The animal weights on the website I listed are on the website in kilograms, which I wrote as lbs. Oops! Thank you to those who have pointed it out! I’ve now removed the ones I know for sure I got wrong, let me know if I missed any. The animal weight list is still linked below in kgs for anyone who wants to take a look. I’ve kept the ones I could find listed in lbs though.

Sometimes it’s hard to visualise or put into context how much weight you’ve lost. So, here’s a list! See what you’ve lost! 🙂 Feel free to pick and choose depending on how you like the maths. For example, instead of a coyote I could say I’ve lost a chihuahua, an ostrich egg, a pineapple and an average human brain. Long-term I’d like to lose a Chris Hemsworth (sigh), but for now I measure my loss in smaller bites.
