Week One

I've finished my first week with the nutritionist's advice, and I lost .8 pounds. Hmmm. I was hoping for more - and when I stepped on the scale a few days ago it was more... which I guess is just a reminder that there are all kinds of fluctuations in weight on a daily or weekly basis. But still, a loss is a loss, and my weigh-ins have shown gains in the last 4 weeks so I'm happy for this change.

Now It's a Family Project

Trusty cat Cleo went to the vet today and had to hear that hard news that she's overweight. So now kitty is on a diet. :-(

She's 12 pounds, but should be more like 10. Apparently cats of her build should only eat 200 calories a day, and one little Fancy Feast can is already 90-100 calories. Yowza! So she's gonna have to cut back on the treats, just like her mom.

And the vet's advice was that sometimes, when cats yell/cry for their food, sometimes all they're really craving is attention so it's better that you sit down and play with them instead of giving treats. And I said "Hmmm... sounds like you're trying to sneak some exercise in there." She laughed and fessed up to it!

So, wish kitty some luck at slimming down... she's 12, and we all know it's harder to lose weight as you get older!

Radio Silence

Sorry for the lack of posts lately -- but ever since I caught that cold a few weeks ago I've fallen off the wagon a bit. I have not been eating as well, and while I've done a little bit of exercise here and there I haven't really been feeling very dedicated. Really, all I want to do is sleep. But the cold is finally starting to move on outta here, and I'm looking forward to getting back to cooking and eating some better stuff. We'll see what the scale says on monday, but I'm a little anxious about it.

I lost 2.6 pounds this week! Hooray! And I'm down 4.5 pounds from my super-high a month ago! I guess being sick sometimes has its advantages. :-) Cuz this is all even with the cooking class which involved lots of butter and salt... it feels good to see the number on that scale going DOWN for a change!
