I did one of these June 6th (posted on my blog) but they are not identical... so I will answer the ones on your meme that are different from the one I already did. I loved reading yours. Today can I please lose 75 pounds with you? That is offically on my things to do today. What do I have to do to make that happen? Last night at WW weigh-in I gained .8, that was the .8 that I lost the week before... so depressing, but I'll keep on tryin'!
toodles, Sheila

Crazy world, I have "lose 75 pounds" on today's to-do list, too. I'll be sure to let you know how well that goes, lol.

Flea said...

How do you plan to lose 75 pounds in a day? Are you leaving one of the crumb catchers somewhere indefinitely?

Andrea said...

I will get right on that meme in the morning, probably...I can't log in to my blog tonight for some reason.

When you get around to losing 75 lbs. today, post an update and let me know how you did it. I would like to see if it works.
