Pretty Pink Poo Diaries, Episode 2
the me is still woe
Only this time it's not MPJ who is wounded,
It's what happens when a chase toy meets a carpet
and a brake-turn-tear shreds the webbing between your paws.
Which then gets infected.
So Not Pretty.
So it's not much, but I've now got down to 13lbs 15oz.
After losing the initial 15oz,
I had totally plateaued-out at 14lbs1oz.
It was weird, after shedding all those ounces in the beginning, it just kinda ground to a halt, and week after week I kept weighing in at 14.1
Then the vet suggested that MPJ use steamed green beans as a treat.
Are you kidding me??
I'm a carnivore for Pete's sake.
They are delicious! And it has kick started more weight loss.
Just to remind you, I porked-in at a whopping 15lbs, and I should weigh 12lbs.
Go figure - I have to lose 48oz.
That's akin to asking a human to lose 48 lbs!
Can you see my challenge?
I needed a bit of good news to counterbalance the misery of being injured.
I now have a whole new respect for when MPJ was moaning and groaning and suffering through her broken ribs.
To start with, the meds were making me feel
I was moping about with my ears pinned, limping,
and not eating (man, you know I'm not well if I'm not eating).
Poor MPJ was freaking out that I wasn't drinking.
She had to use her fingers to put little sips of water on my tongue.
So what do you do when It's a beautiful warm sunny late-summer day and you are still too poorly to actually go for a walk?
you decide to have a haircut-with-a-view!
What could be better than watching ball-obsessed Noah leap in and out of the lake chasing his tennis ball whilst MPJ finally gets around to my super long overdue haircut.
All with majestic Mt Ranier towering in the distance,
seeming to hover in the sky.
It's one of the most beautiful mountains I've ever seen.
HaHa, look at Noah - Man, he gives OCD a whole new spectrum of meaning -
just can't let that ball outta his sight.
And check me out!
You can see my eyes again, my shaggy paws are all trimmed,
and man does it feel good to have all that hair stripped out.
I feel so much lighter!
That's 48 - 19 = 29oz to go!!!!!!!
Almost half way.
Roll on green beans...
