    I've lost an average 2 year old. That is funny because my GD just turned 2 and she weighs 1 pound more than I have lost! lol

    Isn't this a fun thing to imagine.

I can't imagine carrying around the Irish Setter I've lost (all but a pound). My DS has one and he is a brut of a dog. UGH how did I ever get around with him on my hips. emoticon

    During this challenge I have lost 3.5 dozen Krispie Kreme donuts.
I bet I would have gained more that that if I had eaten them.
