True to Life part 2

I pretty much feel like I’m a prisoner to Ms. Laci. When we adopted her she pretty much decided that I was her person and she’s bonded with me pretty tightly (if she could go everywhere…and I mean EVERYWHERE…with me she would) to the point that if I leave to go anywhere there are days that she will sit at the front door and howl until I return.

I’ve been trying to lose some weight on and off for a long time now. Since my Dr. appointment on April 1 where my dr. gave me some really great advice on things I can do to aid in my weight loss I’m down 5.8 pounds. I’ve decided that my goal weight is 140….I started at 161.3 pounds so I’m well on my way.

I took Ms. Laci to the vet to get her shots updated and our vet has officially put her on a diet. In the almost 2 months since her last visit to the vet she’s gained almost another 2 pounds….putting her close to 28 pounds. Our vet says she could stand to lose at least 4 pounds. So Ms. Laci and I are both dieting right now.

As kind of a stress reliever I’ve been doing a lot of reading, walking and I just recently took up knitting again. I had kind of taken a little bit of a breather from knitting to work on some other projects to but the opportunity arose to try a new knitting challenge….A baby Afghan. One of my co-workers found out that she’s having a baby in November and I thought I’d knit her and her husband an afghan.

  1. Good job on your weight loss! Do you have any secrets to share with me? I really need to get back in shape. Oh and my dog went to vets monday and is 16 pounds overweight…

    and like yaya…share it with me, too!!! I have been struggling this year as well. I actually have gained instead of lost! ARG…

  3. Time to walk that dog! And I don’t just mean around the block. I am needing to lose about 20lbs so every night I take my neurosis dog (who has a lot of pent up energy) for a long long power walk. He so wacko that I can walk hella late a night and I don’t have to worry about anyone coming up to us, he’d just kill them. Good luck!

  4. I think it is nice that you can have a diet partner, even if it is your dog. I bet the walking helps you both too. I always find walking to be so relaxing, at least while I am doing it!
