Female dogs need 61 days to produce puppies, while goats need 151. We humans need 265 days (about 9 months), while the poor mama elephant is pregnant for 645 days — a full year beyond our 9 months. Mice need a mere 19 days, a skunk 31 and squirrels 44. Not surprizingly, rhinos (380 days) and giraffes (425 days) need more time than smaller animals.
Q: How long will it take to healthfully lose your weight?
A: As long as it takes. One stage, one pound, one day at a time.
