    Almost a whole human leg!

    (The way I look at it is when I go to the vets carrying one carrier with my 2 giant sized british short hair cats in, and one carrier with a giant bunny and a normal sized bunny in, then that horrendous weight that I have to carry from the car to the vets is about what I've lost :wave_cry:)

    A mid size microwave and a guinea pig lol. Mind you I did put on a guinea pig this week, argh lol

    Fantastic, I was thinking the other day I'd love to find out some weights of stuff out of interest to see what I'd lost.
    I took great delight a few months ago to note I'd lost more than the weight of the rather hefty 9 month old baby I was bouncing on my hip at the time (a friends kid) lol
