Instead of water balloons make sponge bombs! This is a great way to beat the heat without using up a lot of water, and sponge bombs can be used and re-used all Summer long. (And don't have all those balloon pieces everywhere!
Party entrance Idea- use golf tees to keep in ground. Cut strings to length & attach to golf tee's ahead of time, then attach the balloons that day. What a great idea! Could use to enclose an area for party privacy :)
And still lose weight. If you can't go the rest of your life without eating carbs then don't try it to lose weight. The second you put carbs the back into your diet the weight will come right back. It's not what you eat it's how much you eat.
