This Sparked Me!

Over 70 lbs. of cat/dog food. This is what my weight loss goal is, over 70 lbs. I could hardly lift all these bags of food to put in my trunk for the trip home from the store. As I shed each10 lb goal, I'll set aside a bag of the cat/dog food, then when I've reached my final goal, will donate all to the Shelter. It's eye-opening to visually see and feel what over 70 lbs outside of the body is~and then think of this inside my body. Motivates me to get rid of it!!

    That's a great idea. I buy 50 pound dogs of dog food and can barely lift one. I could do the same and donate some to our shelters as well. Thanks!

    That is an awesome idea. I've already thought about the fact that my weight loss goal consists of about 3 of my three-year old son's current weight. But I love your kitty litter visual reminder. It must feel good to physically put each of those 2o pound jugs aside each time you drop 20 pounds.
