Fat Dog and Fat Dogs Mom go on a diet

Well Fat Dog and her mom have decided we need to go on a diet. When I took Fat Dog to be squeezed, they delicately told me that Fat Dog is, well fat!!! She weighed in at 16lbs 4oz. I forgot to ask if that was before or after she was squeezed. Over the years I have managed to get a bit "fluffy" myself. What can I say? I eat when sad, stressed, mad, happy, and for all major holidays. Heck I eat for every and any reason. When I was in my 20's and even part of my 30's, that was not an issue. I could eat 2 Big Mac's and a large fry and not gain an ounce. I cannot even say Big Mac now without gaining at least 5 pounds. On the other hand, my wonderful hubs can eat anything and not gain an ounce. Of course he is almost bald, so I have one up on him in that department. Anyway, back to the diet. Fat Dog and I started it this weekend, yesterday to be exact. I have her starting weight and I have mine. I would tell you mine, but than I would have to kill you, so I will keep it to myself. Besides, I do not think I would look good in a prison jumpsuit. We started Fat Dogs diet by putting the dog food up and only feeding once a day instead of dry feeding. We started my diet by only having three pieces of chocolate before bedtime, instead of 6. It was tough, but sacrifices have to be made. I also will be using my elliptical machine that I recently bought at a garage sale for $40. The lady I bought it from was "fluffy" also, so hopefully I will have better results than she did before she sold it to me. Fat Dog will watch me do the elliptical tonight. The big difference will be that she will not get a snack for watching me. I will keep you all updated with the progress of our Fat Dog Diet:)

  2. Hi Beverly aka Miss Vintage Girl!

    Congrats on starting a blog! But watch out, cause it will eat your time faster than any occupation you could ever think of! :)

    I love the term "fluffy". I've been getting fluffier and fluffier over the past 30 years, and now MUST do something about it. Unfortunately (FORTUNATELY), the checkout lady at the grocery told me that milk chocolate helps reduce the chances of stroke or heart attack, so chocolate won't be how I lose weight. Hubs & I moved dinner to lunchtime, and eat lightly in the evening and I've lost 5 pounds in two weeks. I might have to stay fluffy in some areas cause there's no way I'm giving up pie. ;)

    Anyhooo, so glad you are blogging! I have a bloggy friend, Brenda, who lives in Texas and has sweet little dogs. You might enjoy visiting her blog - it's; http://cozylittlehouse.blogspot.com/

    Tell her Zuzu sentcha! Have a great day!!!

  3. Don't we mostly all get a little fluffy with age? I hate it when I see these thin women aging ever so gracefully. Is it genes, I wonder, or the amount of chocolate they allow themselves? Or plain old good luck? Well, they don't use the phrase "fat and happy" without reason.
