Hi everyone – I thought I would give you an update on how I’m doing.
I’ve made a new friend named Annie. You can see her in the picture with me. She is pretty nice but has a lot more energy than I do.
I have been having a difficult time but had a bit of a breakthrough this week. I have been stuck weighing 16.7kg for a while now but am currently down to 16.2kg. Every ounce I lose is a celebration. Did you know it’s really tough on the body when cats lose weight? So I’m excited to be inching to the 16kg mark.
It is hard for me to exercise because I am in a lot of pain from my hips and knees, so the main way I have to lose weight right now is through my diet. I get weighed every day and this helps us know how many calories I take in and how many calories that come out (I know, gross!). We do this so we know how much I can eat. It seems that my metabolism has finally kick-started because this has been the first week since I started my diet that I have lost an ounce or two with every weigh in. Like I said, a big celebration! It’s been a slow, steady process but I am happy to finally be getting over this hump.
Anyways, thank you for your kind words of encouragement. I’ll let you know the next time I have an update.
