As of last Saturday, I lost a car tire (too bad it wasn't the 'spare tire' around my waist!)

Thanks BARREED, and I do feel great. I think I actually feel better than in my teens, when I was at my athletic, soccer-playing peak. It still is an amazing thing to look at my daughter and think her entire body mass disappeared from me (and more at this point), I suppose I should reevaluate the how much I've lost. Might be a pair of items now :-)

Glad the post was inspirational. That's my hope. My figuring, being one of the world's former spectacular procrastinators was that if I can do this, anyone can do this!!

Good luck!!

I have lost a bald eagle (no wonder they are endangered)... my goal is to lose a mid-sized microwave, but I'll be happy once I lose a cinder block.

Now that sounds funny.

ETA - now I'm a pound away from losing 10 dozen large eggs

What an inspiring lost. You must feel so much better. You only have to go lift your daughter for inspiration to stay on track. Thank you for sharing.
You've inspired me to fight back against my gains.

I lost a human brain (3 lbs.) and gained back 4! (Blame the difference between my summer and fall schedules) I was so happy without it. I'll have to lose it again. Oh to lose my mind, how sweet!

I've actually lost slightly less than a baby giraffe. But I freak out when I realize that I've lost more than my 16-year old daughter weighs in entirety. Kinda like having given birth to a full-grown teenager (plus a little extra pregnancy weight). I mean that is just weird for me to comprehend.

The other reality comparison was shopping at Costco and picking up 3 of the 40-pound containers of cat litter. Lost more than that, and those things are heavy!!

Of course, trying to compare my weight loss to a month's worth of trash (or a baby giraffe) is kinda weird too. But then again ... given my tendency towards sloppiness I can envision the month's worth of garbage.
