Default Holy Cat Litter Awakening

So as you can see, I've lost a bunch of weight since December. I see it in my clothes and sometimes in other ways. But the other day I picked up a 30 lb box of cat litter and realized that I've dropped two of those. TWO! I can't believe I was carrying that around.
So yay me!

WTG! I wonder if anybody has compared their weight lost to cat litter before? Whether they have or not, that's awesome!

WOW. You and I have lost about the same amount of weight, and I just never thought of it that way before. It really brings it home just how much weight we've dropped - I can't believe I was carrying that much more around on my body!!

CONGRATULATIONS on your loss!! May that next box of litter come off rapidly for you.

Thanks dudes.

It's kind of crazy. Don't know why THAT hit me so much when I'm wearing almost 4 sizes smaller and many people have commented on how good I look. Funny how weight loss works.

Yes, actually I thought the same thing hauling a 25-lb bag of litter up the stairs last week! It felt soooo heavy and I realized why I had been so tired carrying more than that weight around & why it had been so hard to get up the stairs weighing what I did.

Very sobering when you have a moment like that!

Good work and thanks for the giggle. I usually pick up a 25 pound frozen turkey for comparison. It certainly is a reality check.

Yea for you. I know what you mean; I have horses and have to carry 50lb. feed bags. I've often compared them to the fat I am carrying on my body all the time.

Good for you! I felt the same way about two weeks ago when I picked up my 11 mo dd and realized that I had lost her body weight. Now I've lost 4 lbs more than she weighs. Lol

I'm still trying so I can't say I've failed.

ROFLMAO! I didn't understand the title of your post but then when I read what you wrote I started laughing. And then I got a tear in my eye for you! A happy tear. A proud tear.

(I might be PMS'ing. )

It is amazing when stuff like that happens. Congrats on the 60 pound loss.
