The Scale was WRONG

Sunday, May 18, 2008


About a month ago I posted about my dog's weight increase so I thought I should update that blog.

I took my dog in last week for a check up. I wanted to see if the new diet and extra exercise was working. It turns out that there was a problem with the scale. MY DOG WASN'T OBESE and I was not negligent and blind for thinking that she looked okay.

I hadn't been starving her but I had limited her meals considerably and was taking her on extra walks and runs. I was so frustrated at the vet, but thankful to know that my pooch was healthy.

Thank you to everyone that posted their concern.

This taught me a valuable lesson, the scale isn't always correct. Therefore, now when I want to see how I am doing with my weight goals I am not only weighing myself, am measuring myself as well.

    YAY Maya! I haven't weighed myself in over a month. I should, but I don't think the scale will be as accurate. I'm going by the way my clothes fit me.

    That's a trip girl. So all this time you were stressing that Maya was unhealthy, but she wasn't. Well at least you know that she is all good. But I bet she did love those extra walks, you should just keep them up anyways. Those are bonding moments.

    I look at that face and a voice come into my mind. "Can I have that sandwich?" It's just how he looks to me.
