100 lb. Club - What strange object have you lost?

I started giggling today when I realized that I had lost a bucket of cat litter. I have to lug the things around at home to change the box out, and usually they are 27 or 28 lbs. So that connected, and I started to laugh even while I did a happy dance. :dance:

I remember someone else writing about having lost a vacuum cleaner a while back. So, here's the question: what silly or strange object are you not carrying around anymore? Large or small, it doesn't matter.

Several years ago, I lost 72lbs. At the time April <--- weighed 75lbs, so I would tell people that I had lost my dog. :D

Bearing in mind that I can pick her up and carry her around for a few minutes but not long. I was carrying that 70 lbs around all the time!

I've lost the equiv. to a 9lb baby.

Years ago, I got down to 179lbs (having lost 40) My daughter was 3 or 4, I remember thinking I lost the equivalent to a good sized small child.

Can I just say...when I saw the title of the thread I immediately thought of the urban legend of the really obese lady (800 lbs rings a bell) going to the ER for some reason and the Drs. found a tv remote, $4.00 in change, a cell phone amongst her folds. LOL I don't think that's possible actually but she lost a phone, tv remote, $$, etc.

Vacuum cleaner! :wave: That was me. :D And it still gives me endless joy. LOL!

But now I've added...hmm...a sack of sugar.

Well, I've lost a lot more than my 7yr old daughter now lol. I realised when I had lost just over 50lbs that she probably weighed about that, so out came the scales and it was confirmed, I'd lost my daughter! lol

I've lost a box of clay. As a former art student, this is particularly significant to me. I always had to park illegally to run my heavy a** box of clay into the building because I couldn't carry it all the way from the parking deck (I tried once, I had to stop and set it down like 5 times).

My 5 year old weighs ~39 lbs, so that's been a huge target for me. When I pick him up now, I can't believe that I was carrying around even close to that amount of extra weight.

Of course, it is a moving target because he has gone up a little but since I started, but I get to the point where I've lost his current weight or more, that will be a huge thing for me and amazing to have that physical reminder of just how much is gone every time I pick him up.

The weight you've lost definitely wouldn't have handled a 6ft drop immediately after being born, I'm guessing.

Oh wait...this isn't really helping, is it :dizzy:

I have lost the equivelant of 4- 40 pound bags of Canidae Chicken and Rice dog food ALONG WITH a 10 pound bag of Orijen Cat food AND 3 pounds of butter.

Just saying.

And that's a LOT OF FREAKING WEIGHT. I have no idea how I carried all of that around on my body.

The first time I lost a two month old horse and 2 automobile tires. :D

The second time I lost another two month old horse. :D

Am very much looking forward to getting to a newborn calf (80lbs)

This calf was born at 93 pounds. That's eye-opening, especially as I am still in limbo, weight-loss-wise, and feeling lousy about my progress. Also learned from the internet this morning: an average female Rottweiler weighs 93 pounds. I have lost a full-grown female Rottweiler (http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii110/carolinecrane/lucyLu_01.jpg). That's a lot of dog! Knowing that makes me feel a little better about still being in the 150s.

(I might be obsessing a little now about things that weigh 93 pounds. It's sort of fun!)

Lol I had a big rottweiller named Moxie. She weighed over 120.If you were to lose her too, you would only weigh 23 lbs.

LOL, that's a little more drastic than I had in mind! Though losing JUST Moxie is more or less my goal. I will keep that in mind as I continue struggling to break this plateau. :D

During my recent relapse, I regained an American Bald Eagle but I've since lost an Ostrich Egg of that. Ultimately I want to lose The World's Largest Ball of Tape and 2 Guinea Pigs more but I will be happy (because I was before, just too dumb to stick to it) with the Fats and Oils an American eats in a year. Last time I got to that weight (Oct 2004), I'd lost 2 Guinea Pigs Riding a 2 Month old Horse, so I know I can do it!

Thanks, that made me smile!

I worked at Wal-Mart as a teen, and sometimes I would have to help stock. There were a few times when I had to get 20 pound bags of dog food down from a huge stack and take them out to the floor. It was tough to lug them around and now I've lost almost 3 of those!!

Hm. 2 guinea pigs came back overnight but I'm sure they're just waterpigs.
