Having just turned 50 in August, Obama showed common height (6-foot-1) and weight (181.3 pounds) for his age range.
Is it worth spending an hour picking over a Caesar salad in the name of weight loss?
My lab at Tufts University summarized 36 years of published studies on exercise and weight, conducted between 1969 and 2005.
Last season he broke more than 100 sticks, and he tried this one, putting some weight on it.
If a man put his weight on them, they'd be sure to give way.
The whole rested on a golden image of Atlas, bending beneath the weight.
This is as plain as adding up the weight of three small hogs.
Their weight was too great not to count, but it counted first this way and then that.
After that weight was exceeded either the wood must break or the nail come out.
Old English gewiht, from Proto-Germanic *(ga)wekhtiz, *(ga)wekhtjan (cf. Old Norse vætt, Old Frisian wicht, Middle Dutch gewicht, German Gewicht), from *weg- (see weigh). The verb meaning "to load with weight" is attested from 1747; sense in statistics is recorded from 1901. To lose weight "get thinner" is recorded from 1961. Weight Watcher as a trademark name dates from 1960. To pull one's weight (1921) is from rowing.
The force with which a body is attracted to Earth or another celestial body and which is equal to the product of the object's mass and the acceleration of gravity.
A measure of the heaviness of an object.
Our Living Language : Although most hand-held calculators can translate pounds into kilograms, an absolute conversion factor between these two units is not technically sound. A pound is a unit of force, and a kilogram is a unit of mass. When the unit pound is used to indicate the force that a gravitational field exerts on a mass, the pound is a unit of weight. Mistaking weight for mass is tantamount to confusing the electric charges on two objects with the forces of attraction (or repulsion) between them. Like charge, the mass of an object is an intrinsic property of that object: electrons have a unique mass, protons have a unique mass, and some particles, such as photons, have no mass. Weight, on the other hand, is a force due to the gravitational attraction between two bodies. For example, one's weight on the Moon is 1/6 of one's weight on Earth. Nevertheless, one's mass on the Moon is identical to one's mass on Earth. The reason that hand-held calculators can translate between units of weight and units of mass is that the majority of us use calculators on the planet Earth at sea level, where the conversion factor is constant for all practical purposes.
