Success is Measured in Small Steps

Hey, Teddy! I went to the vet to be weighed yesterday and I had lost a whole pound! BOL!!!
If I can lose a pound a month, I should be fit and trim by Christmas! I'll still be fluffy, but not extra-fluffy. Mom says weight-loss is a life-long challenge and that we both would be healthier with less belly fat so we're in this together. I have noticed, though, that it's easier for her to cheat than it is for me. She's in control of the can opener.

Last week, Mom bought me a stroller for $5 at a garage sale. I'm not sure what I think of that yet - on the one paw, it's a lot more comfortable than the walker. It's padded and it's just my shape and size when I'm lying down. It's a reasonable color - blue and green plaid - at least it's not PINK. On the other paw, however, I feel a little silly in it, and, to tell you the truth, I think Mom does, too. At least it hasn't come out of the bedroom, yet. I think she plans to take me on our usual walks, because I do need my exercise, and just use the stroller for long distances.

Oh, boy, it's time for bed! I LOVE bedtime because I get a SNACK of cottage cheese and then some cuddle time, which includes ear rubs!

Hey Patch, Congrats on that pound! I know what you mean by moms' dieting and ours. My mom only diets on Mondays and I do until I lose a pound. Sounds like your new ride has potential... a Harley sticker, a few flags and you wearing a bandana around your head and if your mom could get a tatoo, you could look real cool. Teddy
