Talking I've lost my Kirby Vacuum Cleaner!!

I don't know what possessed me to do it, but I stepped on my scale WITH my freakishly heavy vacuum cleaner in my hand and yep...the scale said 236!!! My starting weight was 235. Holy Toledo, I've lost my vac!! I've lost my vac! I've lost my vac! Hey world!!! I've lost a Kirby Vacuum cleaner!!!


Oh yeah! Uh huh! It's real! Uh huh!

Congratulations! That is hilarious. I think when I lose about 50 pounds, I will step on with both of my kids and think "I used to walk around like this all the time."
