Today’s Mantra: Beauty Comes From Inside
There have been a few comments.
A few sniggers.
An outright suggestion that she might want to cut back on the snacks.
She’s embarrassed, the poor thing no longer has a waist!
But it all came to a head when the Nurse suggested she join a weight-loss progam. She (and I) were mortified.
Turns out she’s about seven kilos overweight and as she is only four years old, that’s quite a lot. I knew she’d put on weight but seeing her everyday I hadn’t realised how much.
She is on dry food and doesn’t get a lot of treats but she does shadow the boys and pick up their leftovers on a regular basis.
So when she went to get a wash the other day the nurse suggested a weight-loss program for her where she weighs in, goes on a calorie restricted diet and exercises, a lot. Pretty much Jenny Craig for dogs.
We sat in the office, her stats were entered and she even joined the Slimmer of the Year competition, just in case, you know, she sheds the most kilos.
She gets rewarded at the halfway mark (not sure what with) and at the end if she meets her goal (surely I should be the one getting the rewards for all that walking)
I’ll have to get my before and after pictures ready!
So watch this space for her slimming success.
Current weight: 27kgs
Plan: Restricted diet (diet dog food) and more walking.
