lol this is funny!

Currently I have lost an average house cat (although my cats must be larger than average because two of them weigh more than that).

I want to lose between a 5000 BTU air conditioner and an elephant's penis - ROFL!

Haha....this is a funny way to look at it :)

I've currently lost a sperm whale's brain and would like to lose a house cat or bald eagle!

I've been working out for months and I lost a guinea pig but when my time of the month comes along, it seems like I gain a rack of baby back ribs.

My first goal is a chihuahua and ultimately, I'm hoping to lose a sperm whale's brain.

Also, my husband was working out for a few days and somehow lost a chihuahua and an inch off his waist. I feel like that woman on whatever diet commercial talking about how she cuts out junk food and only loses a little bit but her husband loses massive amounts of weight.

I've lost a Chihuahua and want to lose a 5-gallon bottle of water by next June. That's kind of ironic since I feel like I drink one everyday!

This thread is cute....

I have lost the "fats and oils an average American eats in a year" and would like to lose "a cinder block" more for a total of "a 2 month old horse".

great thread

I've lost a Chihuahua so far, and would like to loose an average 2 year old, total (but I'd settle for an automobile tire!)

Sigh. I'm aiming for losing two bloodhounds and a human brain. So far, I've lost the brain, a human head, a bald eagle, a chihuahua, and two guinea pigs. Thank you for the laugh.

Another viewpoint!

With my first pregnancy I gained (and lost!) the world largest ball of tape; then, I lost an average 2 year old; then, with my second, I gained (and lost!) a 5000 BTU air conditioner. LOL love it!
