Up until October, Mom was a bit of a fitness freak. I loved when Mom would put the stereo on and pull out the yoga mat to work out. I always helped. I was her spotter.
Well last night, she restarted her nightly routine of working out as soon as she gets home from work. I was just minding my own business when all of sudden, I saw her with the yoga mat in her hands. I almost fainted from shock and excitement. I flew off the couch to help her.
This is what it looks like when I help:
Because I’m “overweight”, Mom said she’s going to start bench pressing me if I continue attacking her during the ab portion of her workouts.
Speaking of me being “overweight”, I suppose it’s time I put it out there. You know…the number. I weigh in at 24.2 lbs. My doctor wants me at 18 lbs. That’s 6.2 lbs I have to lose!!!!!
It’s been about 2 weeks since dad gave us biscuits. Our sole treats are baby carrots now. My breakfast and dinner is mixed with green beans (it’s been this way for about a year and a half). I run ALL THE TIME! How in the world am I going to lose 6.2 lbs???
I’m already on low calorie food. The only thing Mom could do differently with my food is put me on Hill’s Metabolic Diet (it’s 35 calories less than Hill’s Science Diet Adult Light) but she said that it is waaaaaay out of her financial budget. Quite frankly, I don’t want it. I sat with her while she looked at that website and I think I would starve to death. Plus, I have a friend in South Africa named Genis and he is NOT a fan! Even though, he is losing weight and looks great, he is always talking about how awful his diet food is. I’ll pass!
This is how I looked when I first lost weight in November 2013:
You will notice just how thrilled I looked.
If you have any suggestions for me that don’t involve eating yucky food, starving to death, or swimming, I’m all ears!
