My first thought was, since I've lost a gold brick, can I keep it?

But now, I will use this for those nosy questioners "so how much did you lose"?

Now I can say a gold brick! It would seem like a polite way to steer the conversation somewhere else (and probably equals the amount I spent on IP products as well)

Great list.

I guess I could post this pic. I have lost 63 pounds...the equivalent of my 3rd grade daughter. I am proud of my accomplishment yet saddened and mad at myself for letting myself get that big. I have always been "chunky" and now I am getting to know a new me. SO SO SO thankful for IP.

I've lost a total of 1 small baby hippo.

On IP alone (since September 9, 2012) I've lost a baby bison (although I hope that I never had that much body hair).
