Did you know a steam iron weighs about 3lbs?

Why am I giving you this inane fact? :?:

Well, I have three and a half pounds to lose to get to my target weight. Out of curiosity I googled what weighed three pounds? Surprisingly, a steam iron came up, a 2-slice toaster and a box of wine!

So, I'm a steam iron away from completing my weight loss journey. :lol:

    You'll do it Grace!!

    Funny that - I thought a box of wine was heavier than a steam iron :?

    Perhaps because it has handles???

    You'll get rid of your steam iron, Grace. Of that I have no doubt. Now, if it were a bottle of wine I might offer to help :wink:

    Thanks for your kind replies. A colleague of mine at work was stunned at the thought of a steam iron being my "measure" for the remainder of my journey. :lol:

    I intend to look up every week what the equivalent is in some kind of household item but ideas are very welcome.
