Stuff That Weighs 30 Pounds; or Holy Crow, How Did I Get Anything Done Carrying A Giant Goldfish...


Sunday, July 29, 2012

Today's weekly weigh-in was sabotaged by TOM this week, and although I *did* register a small loss, it was not as much as I was hoping it would be.

(I know, cry me a river, be happy you lost and not gained, yadayadayada, I get it, I just wanted to see that number drop a little bit more!)

SO, in an effort to remind myself that any loss is a good loss, and to remind myself how little losses add up to big ones, I decided to put together this picture blog. Technically, I've lost 31 pounds, but let's not quibble: 30 pounds is a good, round number for the purposes of this blog, and so...

(ahem)

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you "Stuff That Weighs 30 Pounds; or Holy Crow, How Did I Get Anything Done Carrying A Giant Freaking Goldfish Around My Waist?!?"

*THIS* is what 30 pounds looks like:

    I know, right? I recently tried to pick up a 40 lb dumbell and couldn't do it too well. How did I ever walk around with that?

CONGRATS on your loss....

    bwahahaha I love the gold fish!!! We do need to remind ourselves of these things. I too am at 31 pounds lost and I've been bouncing back and forth in the same 3 pound rangeand I want to scream and throw fits that it's useless and I'm still fat but I am LESS fat than I was and I will be at goal EVENTUALLY! Keep up the good work and I hope you get the number you want next week :)

    I also belong to the 30+ down club. I'm laughing at a few of your choices! I love the giant Koi, the cat (I actually have one just like that.) and the turkey.
30 down feels great.

    I have lost 30 pounds also. It does feel great. I have a lot more to lose but I'm happier now than I was 30 pounds ago.
