    I've lost an ostrich egg and a human brain!!:D

    Great idea this....puts things in perspective so when you think "oh its only a pound" you just have to picture the size of a guinea pig and it makes you feel much better!:)

    I don't usually openly discuss my weight loss journey, purely as it's a personal thing, not something I want to compare/mull over/have disected by others, BUT - when I hit 60lbs I'm SO gonna put "I'm so glad to have got shot of my elephant's penis" as my facebook status!!! lol lol lol

    (oh, I'm sat at 57lbs loss in total...)

    I must be going soft in the head, I actually feel sad at losing my guinea pigs! They are such dear little animals...

    Then again, I think of what I've actually lost (mypetfat sells models of 1lb of fat, not gross but very motivational) and I feel rather better.
