  • what a great idea!! I will plan on donating to our animal shelter and also to our human shelters.We try not to use anymore canned products than necessary but I will try to keep track of all food weights(packaged as well as canned) and donate my lbs. lost at the end of the year or sooner. - 6/3/2013 11:29:35 AM

    I feel really good about it and it is something that I will start doing myself. It is so important to reach out and help those who need it but it is also such an encouragement and motivation!!! - 11/15/2012 3:33:54 PM
  • I love this article! I want to donate in food or litter to my local shelter how much weight I have lost in the new year and every year thereafter. When maintenance comes, I want to continue donating. What a great idea! I can't wait to carry 40lbs of litter up the steps of the ARL. :D - 10/4/2012 4:32:47 PM
  • Thank You for such a wonderful idea. I was looking for another way to keep motivated and now I believe I found it.. Was looking for a way to share this to facebook as I know many people that aren't on spark that are always looking for ways to lose and then to help the community.. Thanks for being the blessing you are. - 9/6/2012 10:53:25 AM

  • Amazing idea. Imagine if everyone on Spark People did this. If we all donated our weight lost to date it would be a phenomenon. - 9/6/2012 9:55:56 AM
