Weight I have lost

Up and Down and Up

I'm not really sure what my weight it doing except going up. I'm following WeWa, but I just watch my weight go up. A well balanced diet and exercise must not be the key to losing weight.

Exercise, Al? You did what? Yes! So far this week I ran two times, both before work. I ran Tuesday and Wednesday. Well I walk/ran, as that is all I can do. But I'm below 30 minutes for 2 miles, so that is something. Wednesday's run caused my hip some soreness, so I took today off. I don't feel sore today. So I'll try tomorrow morning and see how I do.

In other news, D diagnosed Guinness with Cognitive Disorder Syndrome (why is disorder and syndrome in the same problem?). What is that, you ask? Doggie Alzheimer's. She pretty much has met all the criteria. One of the vets seems to think she has a brain tumor, but after thinking about it, D and I don't think it is that, because for all her issues, she would have been dead by now and even if not dead...as many blood panels as this dog has endured, it would have picked something up. So another one of G's vets agreed it could be CDS. So she is on drugs. They won't make her better but should stop the progression, if they work (60% chance). I actually feel good with a diagnosis because I can stop telling vets that there is something wrong and having no one believe me. It still is hard though watching this dog just stare into walls. Oh well, it is what it is, and look out if you think G was spoiled before!

We were going to do a 5K this weekend, but it was sold out. So the 5K next week is still on. I'm excited.

GRRR...the weight thing drives me nuts.... :) But usually I can find blame with not being completely truthful with myself. :) Ahh you know all the blt's (bite,licks,tastes) that I don't record.

I read on FB about G...I'm so sorry, but I'm glad you got a diagnosis. It's better to know.

I don't get weight loss at all...

Usually it is a portion issue for me if I go up when I shouldn't. I'm sneaky about things like a tablespoon of granola (that means heaping tablespoon, right?)

weight loss is tricky. calories in vs calories out. i think the hard part is being honest with ourselves about the calories in part.

Best wishes to the doggy. Might as well spoil 'em rotten.
